Morning ed002

Good call on zaha btw

Ed can you tell us what's happening with midfield players. i know you did a list of targets, but has there been any development



{Ed002's Note - It will be something like this:

James Maddison (CM/AM) is emerging as a summer target for Arsenal (due largely to preferred choices not being available) but Leicester will resist selling him this summer unless a ridiculous offer is made and a move to Arsenal is very unlikely - I would strike him off the list
Adrien Rabiot (CM/AM) - Emery wants him but wages will be very high and interest from elsewhere will likely win out. Obviously Rabiot is in a position now where he can negotiate a summer deal (let's assume that to be a signing on fee, a wage/bonus package, agent and third party fees) with any club outside of the remit of the FFF. This includes Arsenal and a number of other sides. Don't hold your breath - it won't happen.
Kai Havertz (CM/AM) option to Rabiot but won't happen as his future is largely mapped out with a move happening in 2020. I would forget him completely.
Joe Aribo (CM) was of interest - but is he ready to step up? Charlton offered him the best deal possible but opted to move to Scotland with Rangers.
Nicolo Barella (CM) Napoli and Chelsea failed with approaches in January - and he wants to be a starter and stay in Italy - so very difficult. Don't hold your breath as it won't happen.
Pablo Fornals (CM/AM) opted to move elsewhere
Ever Banega (CM) - Emery again likes the player but the club are not so keen, but if the preferred choices are not available he may need to be considered again
Dennis Praet (CM) there has been a fishing trip to look at Praet - it makes little sense to me but he is available. However, the situation is very much complicated by another side who want to take him and Andersen in a package deal and are offering a player plus cash to bring the cost down - so if Arsenal want to do something it will have to be soon.
Joan Jordan (CM) Signed for Sevilla but was watched been watched by Arsenal, Valencia and West Ham.
Christopher Nkunku (LM/AM) wanted by Emery and PSG may be open to a sale, but there is a dependency in Paris that could change that and serious interest from elsewhere
David Brooks (AM) Arsenal has watched him and may make an offer if Oezil were to be moved on - but I suspect the asking price would kill any chance of a move
Julian Draxler (AM) expect player to be offered to the club but wants to stay in Paris and is again expensive - I would strike him from the list
Alexis Claude-Maurice (AM/F) youngster from Lorient who has progressed well this season and attracted the attention of West Ham, Newcastle, Arsenal, Norwich, Sion, Leeds and Lens, and probably others. Others see him as too expensive.}

1.) 29 Jun 2019 16:03:55
Thanks Ed, your information is congruent with the reports that we are having trouble with our primary, and in some cases, secondary targets.

Is it realistic to think that Arsenal want to announce a couple of signings before we head off to America in a couple weeks?

{Ed002's Note - Clubs don't normally by players so they can make announcements before they travel. Traditionally clubs look to buy the players they want instead.}

2.) 29 Jun 2019 16:15:17
Thanks Ed - great list of players we wonโ€™t sign ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ is there a list of possible signings?
Is the window open and if do - do Arsenal know?

{Ed002's Note - These are the midfield players I am aware that there has been interest in. There will be a number of second tier French players still available as well.}

3.) 29 Jun 2019 16:38:43
Thanks for the updates ed002. Interesting about Fornals opting for West Ham, especially if other offers were on the table, but can't blame him for wanting to start. Pellegrini is a good manager too. Sounds like a good fantasy league pick.

{Ed002's Note - West Ham is a good project to sell - Arsenal isn't.}

4.) 30 Jun 2019 13:35:42
Are you saying West ham look more appealing to players than arsenal ed?

{Ed002's Note - Righ now, yes.}

5.) 30 Jun 2019 17:05:48
Right now we look like a club that's completely lost its way and out of ideas on how to find its way back!
That can't be a very exciting prospect for potential new players to want to be part of.
West Ham Wolves and Watford have a buzz about them and what might be possible where finishing in a Europa league position would be met with celebration while at Arsenal the europa league is failure, it's not difficult to understand why players would want to dodge the Club currently.



25 Jun 2019 06:33:46
Hi ed002, how you doing

Talking to mate and he said there's interest in Lacazette from Spain and Italy

Is there any truth in this story



{Ed002's Note - He is teasing you.}



15 May 2019 13:22:02
Hi ed

Are we willing to listen to offers Granit Xhaka.


{Ed002's Note - It is not a priority to replace him.}

1.) 16 May 2019 16:41:41
As Ed002 correct states replacing Xhaka is not a priority. Indeed quite the opposite, both Emery and Wenger appear/ appeared to rate him and select him regularly.



25 Jan 2019 22:24:16
The majority fans realise we are in transition.

January is a bad time to buy players

Let's get behind Emery and the club and give them a couple of summer Windows.


1.) 26 Jan 2019 11:29:45
Its obvious we are very good with the ball and i can see lots of good things that are being done when we haven't got the ball. It is also obvious we have players letting the system down. I can only see us getting CL football this year through the europa league but we need a lot more luck with injuries in defence than we are getting. They are ripping us apart, socratis and kos are vital to any success this season, if we can't rely on them we are forked.



03 May 2018 20:09:24
Ed001 I am reading live chat and jelfy said I am banned for racially abusing some one
I want you to tell me why I am banned, I have never racially abused any one



{Ed025's Note - ED001 is not around malaga and im not privvy to why your banned, but jelfy said that you racially abused him 4/5 times..

1.) 03 May 2018 20:33:51
Ed, if I was racially abusing anyone why am I allowed to post on the main site.

I find it totally out of order that jelfy is allowed to post total lies.

Talk about a kangaroo court.

{Ed025's Note - i will see if any of the other eds know anything..

2.) 03 May 2018 21:00:03
Malaga you are very offensive on the live chat.

{Ed033's Note - I think Gunnerbod has a point. Calling a certain poster a retard when they post on the live chat is offensive.

3.) 03 May 2018 22:00:08
Ok I hold my hands up ed that was wrong but have i been racist?

{Ed025's Note - just had clarification from another were banned for calling someone a retard on numerous occasions.

4.) 03 May 2018 22:37:08
So no racism ed as I said.

{Ed025's Note - apparently not malaga but im still trying to crack the case mate..

5.) 03 May 2018 22:52:32
Some fans just don't know where to aim there abuse since arsene announced he is stepping down๐Ÿ˜‚. Shouldn't be tolerated by any of us tho.

6.) 03 May 2018 23:10:33
Think heโ€™s learned his lesson now Ed - can we use a sin bin approach and let M back for the last home game?

{Ed001's Note - if it was up to me no, and Jelfy would be banned for life from the sites, so I am probably the wrong person to ask! But then I hate the live chats and would happily get rid of them altogether as they just seem to create abuse when people do not have to think about what they say.}

7.) 04 May 2018 09:10:02
I think that's the problem with live chat people use it to abuse the lack of censorship so it can degenerate into a personal insult forum and simply drives away those who want to talk football, which after all is what the Eds introduced it for in the first place.
People need to respect the fact that one of the Eds or maybe a few of the Eds must have put in a lot of effort (unpaid effort) make live chat possible for everyone to enjoy not for some people swap personal insults between themselves.
I went on live chat last Sunday for the first time this season and it was really good to read the good humoured friendly football chat had returned rather than the insult fest it was the last time I went on there.

It's not for me to say who should or who shouldn't be allowed to us live chat that is for the Eds to decide but maybe if Malaga and anyone else who is banned are given another chance it's up to everyone who uses live chat to regulate not only ourselves but each other and when things are getting disrespectful and personal towards posters to give those involed a reminder they are going to far and if they don't listen then they deserve to be banned.

8.) 04 May 2018 17:28:02
Good post gunner, agree with that.

9.) 04 May 2018 18:19:36
7 and half years i've been coming on here ed, mainly to protest against wenger. My work is all but done.

Cheers Everton ed, your one of the good ones we've had on here over the years.

After seeing Josh kroenkes first ever interview addressing the fans, I am feeling more optimistic.

Josh talks about building for the future rather than giving a load a spin like the old regime use to do

He's the best person that's at the club on a daily basis to inform his dad of what's actually going on.

From what I gather arsenal is going to be his baby.

There's no quick fix to our problems and there's a chance Josh could be our new David from.




05 Jul 2019 16:52:10
Ed002, is it true you was a pot head from San Francisco



{Ed002's Note - I grew up in the Bay Area of San Francisco. We all like flowers there.}

1.) 05 Jul 2019 17:04:03
Haha ed, I'm sitting at the kitchen table for the last 2 days taking Billy with a mate from San Francisco.

{Ed002's Note - If only I knew what "taking Billy" is.

2.) 05 Jul 2019 17:18:45
Billy wiz "speed"

And if he plays San Quentin by Johny cash one more time I'm going to kill him.

{Ed002's Note - I see.}

3.) 05 Jul 2019 19:05:08
Hahahaha speed's for jokers and is no way connected to the beneficial herb. Tut tut.

4.) 05 Jul 2019 21:37:44
Get a life.

5.) 05 Jul 2019 23:40:58
Malaga watch out for human fences on the sidewalks bro, I was there for four months and it was shocking scenes.

This coming from someone who lives on a Caribbean island btw.

One thing though, beautiful part of the world. And really good flowers.

6.) 06 Jul 2019 15:59:58
AA23, don't talk about flowers unless you're sharing. That's just bad etiquette.

7.) 06 Jul 2019 16:18:37
Haha RSharpe agreed, that would be proper rude. I meant California had some amazing strains, down here in Trinidad you have to be lucky to land some sensimilla.



04 Jul 2019 08:53:41
Happy 4th of July Eds and reds.


1.) 04 Jul 2019 13:18:37
Same to you brother. Up The Arsenal.



02 Jul 2019 07:21:29
Morning ed002

I know you done a list of out goings a couple of weeks a go, but I was wondering has there been any developments since then.



{Ed002's Note - Such as?}

1.) 02 Jul 2019 14:00:07
Elneny, mustafi, and is anyone at all interested in ozil.

{Ed002's Note - nothing has changed I am afraid.}



02 Jul 2019 11:47:51
What do you call a Chinese man with a camera?

Phil Ming.


{Ed047's Note - I bought a first aid kit yesterday, thought Iโ€™d treat myself.

1.) 02 Jul 2019 12:14:48
Haha ed, the old ones are the best.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 15:06:23
I was lucky enough to meet Serena Williams at Wimbledon yesterday and I got her autograph.

Apparently her real name is Didier Drogba!

RG, I have been saying this all season, that the midfield has to hold half the flack for our defensive frailties. IT so unbalanced with players like Xhaka, iwobi, element and micki. They give no cover to the defence, especially the fullbacks.

For me the midfield needs rebuilding.
