He Ed any word on Torreira heading to Monaco permanently?


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware of.}

Hi Ed02 I have a question regarding Daniel Podence @ Wolverhampton.

Not sure if he has been look at and discussed on here before. What do you think of the player and is he good enough to play in the middle, knowing he currently play on the wing and has Arsenal looked at him?

In my opinion I think he's of good age, creative and I believe will improve further. Valued around £20-30m how bad can it be taking a chance on him playing in the middle.



{Ed002's Note - Arsenal sacked the coach that recommended Podence to Unai Emery because they have little or no idea what they are doing. He is certainly not someone the club has shown any recent interest in.}

Hi Ed002, do you think arsenal will sack arteta after all these poor results?

{Ed002's Note - Not until relegation is confirmed.}

Loool I know your joking Ed but knowing our board I won’t be surprised. Ed would allegri ever be interested in the arsenal job again or is the board just to messed up to attract him?

{Ed002's Note - Right now there is no Arsenal job available.}

4.) 13 Dec 2020 23:48:19
Thanks for the reply. All I can say it’s depressing. If I had shares in such a company I would sell them - alarm bells are ringing - even if it’s on the dip. Good thing they bought back their shares.

5.) 14 Dec 2020 10:30:46
Thank you Ed.

Hi Ed's

What's the situation with Saka contract talk and is Arsenal actually looking at Samuel Chukwueze? Excuse me if you have already discussed this.

Didn't anyone fancy the winter break? I must say it was good to tune out for awhile or maybe it's because of where we are in the table why I welcomed it 😁?


{Ed002's Note - Certainly Samuel Chukwueze was considered by Arsenal - but they blew their funds the didn't have on Pepe who plays in the same position.}

1.) 15 Feb 2020 12:44:06
There is no agreement with Saka who may be knows of the interest of Bayern Munich.}

2.) 16 Feb 2020 00:22:55
Thanks Ed if that’s the case can you or do you know what is the club’s option for his position? I see it as his as there’s no better player at the moment. Auba plays there but it’s not is natural position and he’s not the future.

A lot of people are liking Saka so it’s a big call for the club if they choose to let him loose.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Arsenal looking at a Saka replacement at this time.}

3.) 18 Feb 2020 01:40:58
Any truth in Arteta considering moving Tieney on ED?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware nut there will be interest from Leicester if Chilwell were to leave.}

Hi Ed browsing here but haven't seen anything on here regarding Balogun agreeing new deal or have I missed it?


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what has been posted.}

1.) 13 Apr 2021 17:49:09
Has he signed a new deal for us YardG? That’s awesome news if true and if so then Arteta needs to bleed him into the first team. Goals for fun.

2.) 13 Apr 2021 20:23:20
I heard a rumour that tomorrow is the day :)



16 Mar 2021 21:51:18
I'm surprised how many people praising MA because he up match day protocol and won the NLD.

It's only one player and that's how we should play and approach a game especially a derby. The man rather should get praise for the subtle changes and overall structure and mindset of how the team is shaping.

The front three is better with Laca despite whoever plays either side of him. Auba maybe better if we're playing counterattacking football and I don't think that's the type of manager we have. Although it will be necessary in some games.

On another note, if we're short on funds there is no need to mess with Partey and Xhaka they can do another season together. One needs to be a bit more solid and the other to take more chances.

I don't think ESR can do a entire season on his own, due being injury prone, neither can we rely on a player who is below his level. This is why Odegraad makes sense.

What we're really lacking is the total winning mindset. Believing that you're capable and better than the opposition. It could be something like a twenty percent edge.


1.) 16 Mar 2021 22:50:32
I agree with that YG. You could see the last 15 minutes our boys were maybe lacking a little bit of conviction to see the game out, afraid of Spurs nicking the equaliser. I really hope we pull out the stops to get Odegaard on a full time deal, RM will let him go for the right price. Just have to show that we can offer him CL football sooner rather than later.



14 Feb 2021 12:42:42
Until after the game kicks off today, I believe it's no longer about the manager. Whoever is playing has got to show that football, the club and where they/ we are in league means something to them.

We are one point and one place behind the opponent with them having a game in hand on us. If you're a football with top intentions you have got to turn up today and go all out for a win. That would put us above them by two points and will help us gather momentum again. It will put us just two points behind TOT albeit with a game in hand.

At the time of writing SOU has just pushed us into 12th and will also have a game in hand.

Win, lose or draw it's all about the players for me today. So if a player really want to be the team he's got to be at his best today.




01 Feb 2021 19:40:07
We should have a discussion on Xhaka.

Is he as bad as he got stick for?
When was is last bad game?


1.) 01 Feb 2021 19:53:58
IMO good squad player but not first choice.

{Ed047's Note - I think it’s fair to see he’s upped his game and hasn’t been making huge ricks as he was before.

2.) 01 Feb 2021 21:16:38
Definitely, I think he should have stepped up his game even on free kicks from Sanchez left, who use to dominate everything. Too good of a left foot not to use it more. Also think he must be inspired by Partey as he’s showing more confidence and playing more diagonal balls.

3.) 01 Feb 2021 21:19:36
Same as luiz he’s been class for us.

4.) 01 Feb 2021 21:23:06
Xhaka is definitely having his best ever spell for us but He still has a lot to do to win people over after 5 poor years.

5.) 01 Feb 2021 21:51:31
Welshy you are joking about Luiz right? He’s got at least 4 major mistakes in him every game, he only got away with them last game because holding was a rock.

6.) 01 Feb 2021 22:28:17
Conformation bias :-)
Luis makes mistakes but then again the blokes everywhere in the thick of everything
Holding had Cavani in his pocket, yet Cavani missed lots of easy chances.
I hope Holding doesn't keep his keys in that pocket or he will be needing a taxi home and a locksmith to get in when he gets there :-)

7.) 01 Feb 2021 23:30:01
Hopefully Xhaka has at least got himself some worth in the transfer market for the summer. If we can get more than a bag of chips let’s ship him out. No job in the world would allow someone to perform as poorly as him over such a long period and yet still keep being given chances to improve. So yes, he is playing better at the moment, right up to the point he again gives away a silly foul or penalty, or gets sent off in a big game, or watches his oppo midfielder run past him to slip the ball into our net, where he will slap his sides as if it was someone else’s responsibility to pick that player up. So time to ship out, and with the fees we will hopefully get for Xhaka, Torreira and Guendozi go and get a decent partner for Partey.

8.) 02 Feb 2021 00:09:22
Don’t resign Luiz - disaster waiting to happen. Most red Cards in a season last year. We need proper defenders not ones that slow the game and waste possession with Hollywood passes. He’s not a class defender, never was and he’s now poorer

62 - you are funny and right but Holding is our future while Luiz needs to be the past. He has a role to play but only because we lack leadership

Granit - he’s on a roll and benefiting from Partey but still - can’t tackle, slow passer, accident waiting to happen and doesn’t think quick enough.

Sell them both and get Bissouma to partner Partey.



11 Jan 2021 19:51:35
I guess the plan could be about managing the squad over the next two games, including not rushing Partey and Martenilli.

We play once in gameweek 19 which is quite handy, because thereafter it could be channelling to the end of Feb.

SOU away
MUN home
WOL away
AVL away
LEE home
MCI home
LEI away

Would be great to win the next two going into these.

Hi Ed, if such a swap is being considered Bellerin for Neto. Do you know who would be the right back option being considered or being suggested by Kia? Otherwise is Arsenal looking at right backs? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal added Soares in the summer and have Ainsley Maitland-Niles as well - but I am not aware of them looking for a replacement at this time.}

Hi Ed know you said he reminds you of Ozil and could play in that role. I think he could play beside Partey, reminds me of Carzola actually. Could be what we need with a No. 10 to rotate with ESR.


{Ed002's Note - Not me.}

With such impatience and lack of community understanding, he’s probably on here for tips or a good word to place a bet on the transfer market. But still lack common understanding and etiquette.

Can also use both feet and seems to strike the well and is free kicks unique technique and effective.

Oh G62 you’re just dreaming, hoping and waiting for the day MA is in the dugout no more.

Looks like we maybe setup for a counterattacking game tonight. Interesting with Pepe up front looking forward to it.

Who said we should sell him again? 😃.

Yes Xhaka should have done better. He left Richarlinson with too much space then woeful tackle but he’s not a left back. Leno is a goalie and that shouldn’t have slipped through. It can only be his fault.

That’s a good post Epping. And exactly what I was trying to stress some days ago.

Did these well oiled machines really wanted to start this ESL without doing the necessary PR work or were they sending a threat to UEFA re the new CL format starting 2024 in needing a greater slice of the cake.

Sussex people may not like the idea as it's not a think as yet. EPL is ok, we accept it because that's what we have and have been use to.

The other clubs and some others are dragging fans into their fight. Football is product not just a sport anymore, so an owner is free to sell their product where and how they feel.

There is a greater audience across the world and a new generation of fans. We fans don't own football or the clubs, but we and the commentators seems to be using that narrative.

It may start as a close shop but that doesn't mean it won't evolve to protect it. What's the difference with Primark not being allow a shop space on Regent Street in London?

"I`m glad the money goes to money attitude is being derided" - this thing has been around for the ages if we think it's going to stop or get rid of we're mistaken. Most times there are vested interest behind protest. The money people lobby politicians and so they lobby and instigate fans.

I am just not getting caught up or over emotional in their affairs. I have seen Arsenal fans lose faith in football over the years because they are an Arsenal fan above being a football fan. So however deep The Arsenal wants to be imbedded in it I will remain a football fan.
