Ed002, is that us done this transfer window with in comings

Cheers mate.


{Ed002's Note - I would think so.}

1.) 31 Jan 2020 19:19:03
Second that!

Hey ed, any transfer news for January.


{Ed002's Note - Not right now.}



21 Aug 2019 08:10:41
Morning ed0oo2

Have you any updates on mustafi and elneny finding new clubs.


{Ed002's Note - Not really - Galatasaray are still interested in Elneny but I don't think their position has changed regarding wanting a loan without a commitment to buy. Roma had representatives in England last week and spoke with three sides about players - one of which was Arsenal about Mustafi. I expect Arsenal may have priced him out of a cash sale and again I would expect they will want a loan initially - perhaps with an obligation to buy, but I doubt it (and they have looked at other options).}

1.) 22 Aug 2019 07:33:08
I hope we can find clubs willing to take:
Mustafi, Chambers, Elneny and Mkhitaryan.
I would keep Ozil, to see if he can provide more in the current team, with the new players. Although I think he may have a problem getting into the starting line up.



12 Aug 2019 14:30:03
Hi ed002

Is there still a chance of out going at the club and if so do you have any information on who could be moving

Thanks mate.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, Mustafi and Elneny if buyers can be found.}

1.) 12 Aug 2019 14:41:34
Good man, cheers.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 16:14:29
I'd be happy if both found clubs they wanted to join but equally happy if they remained as emergency cover.
I know financially it's good business but I don't see a problem if both are happy to remain knowing they will only be used as desperate measures.
It's like having an umbrella with you, you aren't forced to put it up but if an unexpected downpour comes it can be handy to have around.

3.) 14 Aug 2019 07:43:08
I would like to see us offload Mustafi, Elneny and Mkhitaryan, but we must be careful as the squad will then be short of experienced players. I would keep Ozil, as he may well improve playing alongside the new players. If we clear out the three I mentioned it will allow youngster smore game time and provide funds and space for a couple of signings in the January window.

Ed001, are we still looking to sign Rugani or are we just going with Luis



{Ed001's Note - looks like Luiz is the alternative to Rugani/Upamecano.}

1.) 08 Aug 2019 09:53:35

2.) 08 Aug 2019 10:44:05
Happy with that, Luis Papa and the gorgeous hansom Calum Chambers :-)

3.) 08 Aug 2019 09:56:58
A bit disappointed in that, from Upamecano to David Luiz! Do you expect that to be our last bit of business Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't expect there to be time to do anything else.}

4.) 08 Aug 2019 11:10:22
Luiz and papa in aback 4 will keep referees happy.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 11:37:23
Was Upamencano ever a realistic option at a world record 92 million? We've spent heavy for us and for most clubs but I don't think world record fees were ever a serious possibility
You wouldn't be disappointed if you had accepted it was always a very long shot in the first place, a bit like winning a million on the lottery we all hope for it to happen but few of actually expect it, I'd say Luis is a good 5 numbers and the bonus ball if not the jackpot.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

6.) 08 Aug 2019 12:57:02
That's what I thought Ed002, nothing wrong with dreaming the impossible dream at all but if you start getting disappointed when it doesn't come true then your always highly likely to be disappointed quite a bit.
My advice have high hopes of top 4 but don't start expecting us to win this seasons premier league title and you stand a realistic chance of not being disappointed come next May :-)

Alright ed001

What do you make so far Arsenal under Arteta?


{Ed001's Note - I don't see anything different from how things started under Emery. Players are trying again, but you are still hopeless defensively. I would give him much more time before judging him though, as he is new to being a head coach it will take him time to learn.}

1.) 18 Feb 2020 11:24:58
I agree . I would like to see a clear out of players, who are on astronomical high wages and start a fresh.

2.) 18 Feb 2020 12:22:41
I’m surprised you said that Ed. Much more clean sheets and much less shots at our goal including drawing 2-2 with Chelsea with 10 men and to be honest we should have a lot more wins if Aubameyang and Lacazette took their chances. Even when we lost to chelsea, we played so well, Jorginho should of got a red and Leno made an error.

{Ed001's Note - Emperor's New Clothes. You are riding your luck again. Only time will tell if Arteta has actually got it in him to improve the defending but Newcastle could have been out of sight in the first half if they weren't dog turd in front of goal. You keep on about all your chances but none of you seem to have noticed you are still giving up huge numbers of chances. You were getting plenty of chances under Emery, that was never the issue until the players stopped trying. The only thing that has changed is the players are once more giving it their all.}

3.) 18 Feb 2020 12:39:31
We did start well under Emery.
However, we were at a very low ebb when Arteta was appointed. Since then we have only lost once. Most of the players have improved and the fitness and tactics are improving. Arteta needs to bring his own players in, to replace those that are simply not good enough and he needs the summer break to work on tactics etc. So far so good.

4.) 18 Feb 2020 13:22:36
I agreed with you when you said it about emery Ed, but this time I disagree HOWEVER we will have to wait and see who’s right! lol.

{Ed001's Note - as I said, it is far too early to judge him yet, I am just saying that so far nothing has actually changed. Early days and he needs a full season at least before he can be judged, imo.}

5.) 18 Feb 2020 17:25:34
Fair enough Ed.

6.) 18 Feb 2020 18:25:35
Not really sure how anyone can think nothing has really changed under arteta? Unless I’ve been watching a completely different arsenal to everyone else the last few games. I would say just about everything has changed, granted the points return hasn’t been spectacular and maybe I’m seeing something that isn’t there but there are large portions of the games now where I actually feel like this is my arsenal again, and haven’t felt that for a very long time, but it’s just my opinion and you are entitled to yours as much as I am haha.

7.) 18 Feb 2020 22:22:41
Ed001 I used the emperor’s new clothes analogy a good few months ago on Emery and got killed on here. You’ve used it twice now to good effect. what’s going on

To be fair - anyone who watches the games and doesn’t think we’ve improved isn’t watching properly but they also have a great point as the issues are still there.

Watch the first half of Chelsea game or Newcastle game / we were terrible and that’s Arteta who’s accountable. Our defence is porous still, midfield weak, poor decisions, poor passing and movement, first decision - sideways. If you don’t see it - change your glasses as it’s not healthy for the club

Newcastle should have been up by the 50tj minute and defence was making the same mistakes - time and time again.

Stupid excuses - long grass zzzz

However - if you watch a couple of games you can see improvements for sure but not consistent enough to say we’ve changed. Enough change to give us hope but not enough consistency to say we’ve changed.

{Ed001's Note - you have summed it up excellently, better but not right yet.}

8.) 19 Feb 2020 06:33:05
To say nothing has changed yet under Arteta, is not a right analysis, I believe. A lot have changed in the right direction, but we still have a lot to improve as well. Under Emery we couldn't see what the players were trying to do (I'm not sure whether they knew either) . But under Arteta people have a lot more clearer instructions like AMN playing as RM and allowing Saka to venture forward, Arteta covering up for Saka and more recently Ceballos holding his position as a deep midfielder to allow Ozil to dictate the game etc., and a special mention to Mustafi who has been good earlier, now has become a lot more dependable. Of course, he needs time to create a well drilled/ oiled machine but to say nothing has changed yet, is totally a pessimistic thought. Anyway, it's my opinion though!

{Ed047's Note - SY and Ed01 have it spot on for me Sen, neither are saying nothing has changed but explain the reality of what we’re seeing.

It’s not a bad thing but just a pretty good unbiased assessment mate.

9.) 21 Feb 2020 05:52:08
I understand, Ed047, Cheers! :)

{Ed047's Note - no probs Sen 👍🏼



02 Feb 2020 17:56:13
For the first time since he was appointed coach, Arteta made a right balls up.

The front line formation was all wrong. Lacazette should never have started, if he wants him to build confidence he should do it on the training ground, his first touch is atrocious.

Martinelli should never be played on the right.

Ozil is a waste of space the only decent thing he did all game was commit a foul.

This was all plain to see and changes should of been made at half time.


1.) 02 Feb 2020 18:10:51
I think Ozil was pretty good for first 15-20 mins and not so bad after that.

2.) 02 Feb 2020 18:49:56
So is it Arteta out.

3.) 02 Feb 2020 19:00:21
Agreed Malaga - think the boss messed up today and blamed the pitch

Poor defending
Poor midfield
Poor attack
Poor plan a and no plan b

Not playing Torreira 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ Matteo in his place - come on boss - seriously. the boy couldn’t keep hold of a tail

Pepe dropped? Play PEA out of position. get a grip boss. Laca keeping his spot up front

Sort your tactics out and getting the defending right - we were terrible.

4.) 02 Feb 2020 20:00:54
While city got smashed at Tottenham 😁.



31 Jan 2020 15:09:03
Big thanks to ed002 for all the info and patience during this window.


{Ed002's Note - You are welcome, thanks.}

1.) 31 Jan 2020 22:38:19
Thanks Ed!

2.) 31 Jan 2020 23:27:23
Thanks Ed!



31 Jan 2020 14:40:54
I'm quite happy with our transfer business
Ok we haven't got a house hold name in Mari, but utd spent £80 million on McGuire and he's not worth half of that.
Arteta as we know has improved our average players, let's see what he can do with Pablo.
Cedric is looking to kick start his career and from what I can remember of him a couple of years Bach he's a good edition.

3 points on Sunday and top 4 here we come.


1.) 31 Jan 2020 15:02:44
Absolutely, with a low spend we have managed to sign a CB that won 2 trophies in Brazil in his first season at the club and an underrated full back that I have long admired. Our previously poor defence looks totally different after the acquisitions over the last two windows.
Looking forward to seeing continued progress under Arteta.



30 Jan 2020 17:29:28
Hey, ed002 do you have a transfer update on out goings and in comings

Thanks mate.


{Ed002's Note - No. Arsenal still have their heads in the bargain bucket.}

1.) 30 Jan 2020 22:34:40
Hope we bought the bucket on a Tuesday as they are only 5.99 on Tuesdays aposed to 11.99 other days of the week.

2.) 30 Jan 2020 19:59:44
Nothing wrong with that. Hopefully it pays off.

RG, who's the players that went out on loan and where did they go?

Ed would he be a replacement for Granit Xhaka.


{Ed002's Note - Potentially Arsenal could let Elneny and Xhaka go if they could bring him in.}
