Hi Edoo2, how's it going?

Is there any chance you could do a brief run down on what could happen in the January transfer window

Ta very much.


{Ed002's Note - It is very difficult to predict the timing of transfers and January is particularly difficult unless clubs have replacements signed up. However, if replacements are found, Eddie Nketiah (S), Emile Smith-Rowe (CM), Jakub Kiwior (CB/LB) and Aaron Ramsdale (G) could depart in January.}

1.) 07 Dec 2023 03:32:14
Surprising to see about Kiwior. I've always thought he was a great prospect. But still, given the Raya situation, FFP is probably always looming.



30 Aug 2023 09:40:51
Good morning Edoo2, hope you're doing ok

Ed do you know what we may do regarding in and out in the last days of the window?


{Ed002's Note - There will not be any change of direction from what has been explained and the club will be pushing to move players on.}



24 Jul 2023 10:41:19
Morning Edoo2, you may have already answered this, so apologies if you have

Are we one of the clubs that have approached PSG over Mbappe.


{Ed002's Note - No, Mbappe is not moving to Arsenal.}

Cheers mate, I don’t know where all these news outlets on line get their info

Thanks for still answering everyone’s questions even though you got some abuse from a right tool.

2.) 24 Jul 2023 21:29:38
Not sure how reliable Sky Sport News are, but they are reporting Al-Hilah have made a £259m bid for him!

Where is football heading?!?

{Ed014's Note - Saudi Arabia by the looks of it Sally

3.) 24 Jul 2023 22:10:59
Will we end up with a few super clubs playing each other all the time do you think Ed?

{Ed014's Note - I really hope not Sally, it would be the death of it for me.

I think for now though, the Saudis simply want to create a league to match the biggest in Europe and the bankrolling with government money means they’ll no doubt achieve that.

4.) 25 Jul 2023 03:54:13
Ed014 did you watch the FIFA corruption doco? I think it was pretty informative. The key for me is recognising that KSA, Qatar, etc are playing the game the way that those corrupt officials in FIFA, government, etc have set it up to be played. In a way I think they can't be blamed for going all in, and if you're going to blame anyone it should be the people who have created this situation in the first place. Not excusing the human rights problems - simply some context for the discussion.

{Ed014's Note - no mate I didn’t but will do as its not something I can profess to have any great knowledge around.

5.) 25 Jul 2023 11:24:50
It doesn't seem fair if the Saudi league isn't playing under FFP rules, which is what I have read. I hope that's not true.

{Ed002's Note - You sound like a Liverpool supporter - they also think Saudi Arabia is in Europe.}

6.) 25 Jul 2023 12:20:34
Definitely not Ed!, although I would have thought Financial Fair Play should be a worldwide standard for all countries and all sports. Mind you I have always been an idealist :)

{Ed002's Note - UEFA is modifying it to align with sustainability rules.}

7.) 25 Jul 2023 15:05:49
Thanks for that Ed002. ?.

8.) 25 Jul 2023 15:06:15
I was wondering if that might be a possible end game, splash the cash, get the Saudi league and clubs on the map and then propose the super League again, with the 4 state owned clubs and the original super League teams.

9.) 25 Jul 2023 20:55:49
Think I might become a Brentford supporter if that happens Eden. I'm not a fan of not being able to progress or drop out of a league.

10.) 26 Jul 2023 17:25:01
Well for its own reasons FiFA gave the go ahead to make the Qatar world cup possible, it can hardly complain if for the very sane reasons it said yes to Qatar brings about and end to its ability to control footfall in the future. You can't put money above people's human rights and the good of the game one minute then complain when that same money brings about your own downfall, well you can complain all you like but few will have much sympathy for you.



12 Jul 2023 11:40:04
Edoo2 have we an interest in Hojlund.


{Ed002's Note - No. Scouts went at one time but that is it.}



07 Jul 2023 12:12:53
Edoo2, have we an interest in Watkins from Villa?


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

Anyone see the new book Tottenham brought out for Christmas?

It has no title.


1.) 06 Dec 2023 20:53:21
I heard Raya couldn’t catch the first addition on release.

RIP Shane MacGowan

How much fun was live chat last night

I'm not going single out any player they were all fantastic

Top of the pl

Qualify in the top spot in cl

Some will still moan.


1.) 30 Nov 2023 09:12:13
What a great position they've got in! Last game with neither team having anything to play for, fingers crossed for a nice friendly game with everyone getting a rest or a run out as needed, no rash tackles or injuries. I fully expect Saka to play though, because that seems obligatory (that might be a moan about something that hasn't even happened yet ?)

{Ed014's Note - I meant to warn you about moaning last night eden, so take this as your final warning! ??

2.) 30 Nov 2023 09:30:24
Fantastic result and great seeing Kai taking up great positions in the box and late runs. Takes up better positions than Jesus which is great news. Also, nice goal.

Well played Rice.

3.) 30 Nov 2023 10:27:04
Thing is Sy not many getting overexcited about Kai because of the last two games or were being underwhelmed because of what went before. He is neither at the moment rubbish or a world beater. At the rarified atmosphere we now operate at it is difficult, particularly in a creative role. It may well be he is just getting the hang of the role as his effort endeavour and undoubted ability was never in question for me. Hopefully just needed time. This is good news for us if true. Ode said last night the players are aware they haven`t hit top form which psychologically must be a big help going forward. We only see a snapshot of the players on match day but they are seen daily by MA et al. If Kai was rubbish and a fake I don`t think these players would have the obvious liking for him as too much to lose. Just as an aside (and I haven`t gone all religious) I love Jesus! Such a pest brings others in to play and can finish - big big upgrade on Laca and he was very good COYG.

4.) 30 Nov 2023 12:47:34
Sy4, is Kai growing on you?

{Ed014's Note - very, very, very slowly! ?

5.) 30 Nov 2023 18:26:44
My issue is I still don’t understand why we signed him and paid what we did when we have more pressing needs and have FFP constraints as well as budget constraints. Wish we had used the money differently .

Other issue - where to play him and people saying it was a great signing wtf. Then he walks into the team and is terrible.

I have said - I’d be happy with his signing if we signed a Partey / Granit replacement and a striker. If we did that and Kai . Then fine.

Arteta was trying to solve a problem that didn’t exist.

Then he plays like a donkey which is frustrating

Always wanted him to succeed and i'm hearing stuff from behind the scenes and seeing him get into good positions - so yes he is very slowly growing on me and I want him to do well.

6.) 30 Nov 2023 23:20:01
I think most people would agree with that Sy, there were other more pressing issues, he should definitely not have cost as much, but now it's done, none of that's his fault and now there's nothing that can be done apart from get behind him and hope it works out.

Like Sussex says I don't think the other players would be having it and willing him on so much if there wasn't something there and he was truly awful.

Not a comparison with Xhaka as a player, but it reminds me a lot of those rough Xhaka years when most people, myself included, despaired at him, thought he was absolutely useless, yet every manager always picked him and all the players seemed to love him.



26 Nov 2023 09:15:36
60 million down the drain

Kai Havertz scores again.


1.) 26 Nov 2023 09:59:06
So you value him at 5m Mal. I thought I was tough on the young man and Arteta not signing a Partey replacement.

2.) 26 Nov 2023 12:44:56
I think we have all been a bit harsh on Havertz. Hiding now!

3.) 26 Nov 2023 13:19:39
Nice to see him settling down. Looks like he's a very versatile player and with that height he has a big advantage. (get the pun? lol)

It was interesting to see how the playera reacted to Ramsdale at the end. He's obviously very popular in the dressing room. I wonder if that will colour Arteta's judgement? Mind you he has sidelined Oezil, Auba and Tierney so he makes tough calls.



09 Nov 2023 08:29:26
That ETH is was hell of a good looking fella.

Are we interested in Ivan Toney Edoo2.


{Ed002's Note - Possibly.}

Hi sally

Edoo2 has this story got any truth to it?


{Ed002's Note - Gabriel Magalhaes (CB) Arsenal have rejected an approach from Juventus. PSG may make an approach. An offer from Saudi Arabia is likely with two members of the League assisting Al-Ettifaq. There could be interest from elsewhere in the Middle East. Finding a suitable replacement may be difficult but they had identified targets they could revisit.}

Edoo2 do we have any interest in moussa Diaby?


{Ed002's Note - Moussa Diaby (LW/RW) Bayer Leverkusen were approached about the player by Borussia Dortmund last season but no more than that. They have no interest in selling unless a very significant offer of something like €70M were made and have rejected a significant offer from Aston Villa, who may return with another. Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Real Madrid have sent scouts but each think the asking price too high. Was due to be replaced by Mykhaylo Mudryk last summer, but that never happened. Arsenal remain keen. A wildcard option may be a return to PSG. Newcastle are very interested but a move there would be a regression and I am sure being in the Champions League would be a consideration. Manchester United offer another wildcard solution. ASton Villa face an uphill battle to convince the player, but will keen trying.}
