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!



12 Sep 2019 19:14:40
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.



08 Aug 2019 09:49:01
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 :-)

30 May 2020 16:30:26
Is it just me or would you give mustafi another year?

I thought he improved quite a lot under Arteta.


1.) 30 May 2020 17:02:16
I think he's out of contract this summer mate so might want more than a 1 year deal to stay when he could potentially negotiate a really good deal somewhere else as free agent.
He has shown signs of improving under Arteta but I'm not sure enough to be offered more than 1 year deal right now.

2.) 30 May 2020 18:36:53
His contract expires next year mate.

3.) 30 May 2020 18:42:07
I don't mind keeping Mustafi, but we need to move some CB's. I think they are all capable but need a more stable midfield in front of them. A strong Def mid is needed, as it has been for many years now.

4.) 30 May 2020 18:49:49
I agree Davy, have been saying the same for years.

5.) 30 May 2020 19:27:52
Oh cheers DG mate, in that case definitely let him run it down and see how it goes from there.
Agree Davy a natural DM with a real appreciation for stopping goal scoring chances happening has been missing for years, although alongside Caz Le Coq was doing a very good impression of one.

6.) 31 May 2020 22:52:33
It’s criminal to have Torreira, Matteo and Granite as the spine of our midfield protecting a back 4 with a less that great pair of centrebacks - we can’t start with Mustafi, Luiz or Papa as centre backs plus we need to change that midfield 3.



26 May 2020 11:00:24
Right boys and girls, we are at the right back position

I've gone for Lee Dixon, a great all round full back.


1.) 26 May 2020 12:54:46
Dixon or Viv Anderson for me mate.

2.) 26 May 2020 14:21:33
I liked Viv a lot, but Lee just edges it, because he was a longer serving player.

3.) 26 May 2020 17:32:34
One and only Debuchy for me lads. 13 appearances 1 goal. GOAT 🐐.

4.) 26 May 2020 17:45:04
Pat Rice for me club legend in my humble opinion COYG.

5.) 26 May 2020 21:40:46
No sorry boys I've changed my mind, it's absolutely got to be Bacary Sagna for me, for my money he had to be the best right back around at that time and stuck by the Arsenal even though times weren't brilliant when he could have joined almost any other club he'd wanted too at that time. and only left in the end because we refused to give him the last pay day he'd well and truly earned with us. Can't believe I forgot him earlier on.
Nailed on definitely Seaman Sagna Cole at 1 2 3 for me.

6.) 26 May 2020 23:19:49
Seaman, Sagna, Cole, Keown and Sol = that’s my defence

Big shock dropping Adams but there’s enough leadership in that back 4 plus pace.

7.) 27 May 2020 20:16:12
Seaman Sagna Cole Adams Campbell for me mate.
Big Tony was Mr Arsenal, excellent defender and a leader who lead by example. He organised and demanded from everyone around him like no other I've seen. I just can't imagine anyone playing along side him even thinking of shirking thier personal or collective responsibilities.

8.) 27 May 2020 22:20:46
For me Keown is the best man marker and with the quality of the top strikers out there. I can’t leave him out plus he brings leadership, winning mentality and fear factor - no hiding place with him.

So that left me Sol or Adams. For me Sol won it on pace especially given today’s game. Great on the ball, big presence and great in air - he was a leader also.

Hence Tony didn’t make it - tough call. I know.

9.) 28 May 2020 06:36:54
Didn’t realise we had got to CB yet

I see SY4 has spoilt yet another thread.

10.) 28 May 2020 10:55:36
Lauren rb for me.

11.) 28 May 2020 21:02:53
Sorry Malaga - I will remember to value longevity and loyalty over quality and stick to the topic. I got excited and drifted off piste.

12.) 28 May 2020 21:50:07
Just be yourself SY even if that means being a wine drinking Tory hairest:-) . Longevity and loyalty are excellent values but quality has to be taken into consideration or its just an old boys club where Wilshere has higher standing than Bergkamp Henry and Vieira. It's always about ballance and personal opinions.

13.) 29 May 2020 13:51:39
Eboue, hands down.

14.) 29 May 2020 16:05:22
Apart from one horrible game I thought Eboue was ok Jack, when people say a player had the game of their life where everything they did was spot on brilliant that day poor old Eboue showed it was possible to have the complete opposite game too.
Felt so sorry for him that game.



18 May 2020 16:34:58
For me this has been the hardest position to pick our best player.

We have been blessed with some very talented number 3's.

The list goes from mcnab all the way up to Cole.

I have thought long and hard and I can only come up with one name, who was loyal, hardworking and gave 110% every time he took the field.

I'm going to give it to Nigel Winterburn.


1.) 18 May 2020 17:32:18
Ashley Cole by a country mile for me mate, Sammy Nigel Kenny Sansom were all fantastic for us but Ashley was class above not just in terms of Arsenal left bacjs but of his generation of premier league left backs in my opinion, I know for some it's difficult to let go of personal grudges towards Ashley to able to include him but in the real world the lad was unbelievably good.

2.) 18 May 2020 18:35:19
Ashley Cole all day long! Not his fault David Dein’s I think! For a few grand! Loved Kenny Sansom too hope he recovers COYG.

3.) 18 May 2020 18:42:25
Definitely wish Kenny all the best and hope he can get really well again asap Sussex mate.

4.) 18 May 2020 20:36:38
Cole all day long - up there with the best.

5.) 19 May 2020 03:17:35
3- league titles
2- fa cups
1- league cup
1- European cup winners cup

Arsenals most decorated left back

I talked about loyalty.

6.) 19 May 2020 18:02:51
Nobody voting for Santos.

7.) 19 May 2020 21:24:58
You missed off Football League Centenary Trophy and
FA Charity Shields

Nigel was very special and loyal but not sure he’s technically our best ever left back

Cole helped change Chelsea to big time winners and won loads there also.

8.) 20 May 2020 04:25:28
Sy4, I’m not talking about coles exploits as a Chelsea player. I’m talking about an Arsenal record.



11 May 2020 12:29:13
Who do you think is our greatest number 7

For me it's chippy Brady.


1.) 11 May 2020 14:38:07
Tough one that. Brady, absolute quality, surely pires has to run him close.

2.) 11 May 2020 19:33:19
George Armstrong has to get a mention too and surely no list of Arsenal's best ever number 7s could be fit for purpose if it did not contain David Rocastle at the very heart of it.

3.) 11 May 2020 21:39:58
Rocky. of course. Fantastic player and by all accounts fantastic person as well rip.

4.) 11 May 2020 21:43:30
Limpar. merson.

5.) 11 May 2020 21:45:14
Not saying they were the greatest, just that we've been blessed with that number. Even Sanchez and rosicky (when fit)

6.) 11 May 2020 22:02:24
Pires and Brady - how many players get a “we’re not worthy” moment when you pick up the epl trophy.

7.) 11 May 2020 22:48:58
Absolutely Ramsgate mate, incredible to think Dave Rocastle and Ian Wright grew up on the same estate together and ended up rooming together on Arsenal away trips, Wrighty says Rocastle took him under his wing when he first arrived and told him he was now playing for The Arsenal.
Couldn't believe it when George sold him, great player and apparently a lovely human being too bless him.

8.) 12 May 2020 08:59:02
Still Chippy for me

Was at the sewer when he scored an amazing screamer in the 5 nil hammering

Born is the king of Highbury.

9.) 12 May 2020 16:32:48
Born in 76, haven't memories of Brady apart from video footage. But looked class apart back then. Just going on clear memories to me. Think we can all agree, all names mentioned were and those still playing are quality .
Even couple of years back, watching arsenal vs Milan legends, pires and ljungberg still looked better prospect than some of current 1st team.

10.) 13 May 2020 21:03:49
Watching the re-run of the 1979 cup final ( one of the greatest imo) reminded me what a great player Brady was, two footed, and a great creative force, so he wins for me.

11.) 13 May 2020 23:24:57
Most two footed player - Santi

Most one footed player - Paul Davis

Two great players nonetheless

Still torn between Brady and Robbie - that lob Robbie scored. “Take a bow son”

Malaga - the goal against Spurs, think was on the old motd build up clips, was special One.

12.) 14 May 2020 17:35:04
As for league number 7s nobody better than man Utd, George best, Bryan Robson, Ronaldo will take some beating.



04 May 2020 18:46:04
Friday night 8 O clock on sky sports

Anfield 89

In my opinion our greatest night in football.


1.) 04 May 2020 22:01:25
In the words of Frankie Valli OH WHAT A NIGHT "
Monday itv 4 starts showing the whole of Euro 96, hope Southgate doesn't take a penalty this time :-)
Italia 90 and Euro 96 are my favourite tournaments, mind you Spain 82 was pretty special too.

2.) 05 May 2020 07:18:18
A field 89 is the best finish to a season ever
Aguero at home to a relegated qpr doesn't even come close
Good Times pre sky.

3.) 05 May 2020 08:44:07
The best finish and agree Liverpool away at that time mission impossible! One minute to go just one minute! Also on itv at 5pm Saturday 1979 fa cup final! Well worth another watch COYG Sunnnnnnddddeeerrrrlaaaaand!

4.) 05 May 2020 09:43:09
I think I'll take that trip down memory lane on Saturday Sussex mate cheers.

5.) 05 May 2020 12:25:44
G62 I was 13 at the time and having to go to school the next day where I was the only Gooner and having given it large about us avenging Ipswich would have been impossible if we`d lost! And with 10 minutes to go Mr Cocksure then . . My Avatar is the winning moment COYG Sure it will change but Spurs still couldn`t win a trophy on these ITV Classics - beaten by COV :)

6.) 05 May 2020 14:11:16
Hi Sussex mate I was 16 just about to turn 17 that May, brilliant day at the time and fantastic memory now.

7.) 06 May 2020 16:20:08
Don't worry Sussex they are showing Arsenal v West ham next week 🤣😂🤣.

8.) 07 May 2020 08:40:53
Ah Raver remember it well - isn’t that where super Willie Young who had seen the light along with Pat Jennings brought down a future Spud? COYG.

9.) 07 May 2020 10:40:43
Yes Jennings seen the light where he won 5 trophys at spurs, and only the FA cup at Arsenal🤣😂🤣.

10.) 07 May 2020 11:05:04
Pat said his 1 Arsenal trophy was worth more than any other trophies before it simply because he achieved it with the best club in the world.

Ok Pat didn't actually say that but you only have to look at him to know he was thinking it, and be honest Raver even you can see where he was coming from mate :-)

11.) 07 May 2020 11:29:50
Raver, imagine winning the league not once but twice at your biggest rivals ground?

Dream on Bouncer.

12.) 07 May 2020 12:59:27
Raver can we call a truce please! When having any debate regarding trophies can we not include the Charity Shield as a legitimate trophy although might only be two people who do that COYG :)

13.) 07 May 2020 19:17:32
If it's good enough for RG its good enough for the raver Sussex 😁.

14.) 08 May 2020 10:13:20
Where is RG? Hope all is OK with him and his family as I remember him saying he had family in Italy too.

15.) 08 May 2020 20:27:34
Yes hope he's ok gunner, I know he has his own private plane so I could seen him flying over there to see them.

Ed would he be a replacement for Granit Xhaka.
