Will Ed02 kindly give the rules for the number of home grown players, overseas players allowed in a team? What are the rules for players born overseas to be considered homegrown?


{Ed002's Note - There are two things to consider and not to confuse:
(1) Home Grown: The EPL squad rules are a max of 25 players over 21, of which a max of 17 can be non-Home Grown. The remaining eight have to be HG (spending 3 years between 16 and 21 with English or Welsh sides, regardless of nationality/place of birth, e.g. Nathan Ake is Home Grown for the EPL). If there are not enough HG players, then the squad size reduces, so if there are only six, the squad reduces to 23. In terms of UEFA competitions, the rules vary slightly with the eight "HG". A maximum of four of those eight can be trained by other clubs in the English and Welsh association. The remaining have to be club developed and trained. So If Liverpool were to recruit Mason Mount, he would fall in to the category of being association trained (by Chelsea) rather than club trained. Again, if there are not sufficient club trained players the squad size is reduced.

(2) Club developed: In terms of "club developed and trained" means that they have spent at least 12 months with the club before the year of their 19th birthday. As such Ryan Sessegnon is not club developed by Spurs nor Joe Gomez by Liverpool.}

Thanks, you cleared everything .

Can you please tell me other than Tielemans are we looking at other players for our midfield? There was some talk about Wijnaldum in January, is he still being considered?


{Ed002's Note - Notably Bissouma but plenty of others have been looked at.}

1.) 08 Jun 2022 11:57:31
Bissouma and Tielemans would be great business. I'm assuming signing both is out of the question Ed?

{Ed002's Note - It would depend on sales.}

2.) 08 Jun 2022 12:08:43
The one thing that always let's us down! Thanks Ed.

3.) 08 Jun 2022 13:22:50
This news has buoyed me with the false sense of hope that only an Arsenal fan can know! Ed! You’ve made my day.

Bissouma - £25 mill
Telemans - £30 Mill
Gabrial - £3 Mill
Left back £10 Mill
Nunez £75 Mill

£143 Million Spent

Eddie staying must have saved us some of our transfer budget

Lets say we had £60 Million to spend this summer (or stan was happy to invest that amount)

Torrea - £ 10 million
Mari - £ 4 million
Bellerin £ 12 Million
Leno £ 15 Million
AMN £ 7 Million
Riess £ 10 million
Pepe £ 20 Million

£78 Million in sales

£138 and we are only a little bit apart :)

Time to get excited

***** obviously I am just waffling and prob nowhere near on my valuations but still, it's made me dream of a 2nd decent enough transfer window.

Time to get tooooo excited. Nunez is not coming our way mate. Think more Scamacca or Jesus. Or Simeone.

When was the last time an Italian attacker shot the lights out in the Prem? Zola?



05 Jun 2022 16:53:23
Are we still looking at Bissouma? Or have our interests moved elsewhere?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change 0 but seems to be a complete flake.}

Do we have any interest in Czech midfielder Antonin Barak?
Thanks to whoever answers this .


{Ed002's Note - No but he could move to England.}



25 Mar 2022 11:46:59
Will any of the Eds please respond to the rumour of Tite replacing Arteta after the World Cup . It means from the season starting 2023 .


{Ed002's Note - Tite will be available next year and Arteta's contract is until the end of next season. Edu certainly knows Tite but it is difficult to see that Arsenal would look to appoint journeyman coach who will by then be 62 with no experience of working in Europe, let a lone England.}

Our we thinking of using Martinelli as a striker/ centre forward?



1.) 24 Jun 2022 09:29:23
I heard last season he was doing a lot of training as a striker so maybe.

G Jesus's transfer fees was supposed to be 45 million pounds, so the total can be anything like 60?

So when we say a player has been bought for 50 million does it mean just the transfer fee and all he rest are added or is it inclusive of everything if not most of the items given?


{Ed002's Note - That would be the Transfer Fee. All the rest is added on.}
