Hi eds are we still looking for another striker with balogan gone leaves us a little light up top.

smoggygooner

{Ed002's Note - I have explained what Arsenal are looking for. And clubs do not buy players to replace loaners.}

Morning eds with the business we've done so far this window would u expect us to focus on outgoings now or are we still looking to bring new faces in
Thanks for all the hard work and info you guys bring.

smoggygooner

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal need to sell but are looiking at adding a player or two as well.}

Hi eds can you shed some light on reports we've making a second bid for both raphinia and martinez from ajax
Is there any truth or is it speculation.

smoggygooner

{Ed002's Note - Lisandro Martinez (CB) An approach by Manchester United may be on the cards. For Arsenal, if Saliba gets his wish to leave he would be one of several options the club has identified - otherwise there is no space behind White and Gabriel.

Raphina (RW) Deco is working with his old club Barcelona to see through the transfer. The issue is that Leeds want a single cash payment of around €60M but Barcelona want a lower up-front payment. Deco will offer him elsewhere but will ask for a "Barcelona" get out clause - one club has already rejected that. PSG were looking to Raphinha as one of their list of potential Di Maria replacements. The interest to Bayern Munich has gone. Interest of Liverpool would only be as an option to replace Salah and again they have not spoken with Leeds as Salah will be looking to run down his contract over the next year. Chelsea have watched Raphinha as they are looking to change wide players but an offer seems unlikely unless the request for the clause is removed. Arsenal and Spurs have both been approached by Deco and Arsenal have spoken to Leeds as they have a pressing need to add a wide player - but remain an unattractive option. Leeds will look to resist but if a really good offer were made from any leading club then the player would likely be interested in a move. Leeds will sell and have a replacement in mind. The player very much wants Barcelona.}


1.) 27 Jun 2022 21:07:15
Thanks for the information ide like 2 see him here but not if we get a s3ason then he buggers off to Barcelona lol.


2.) 28 Jun 2022 09:36:10
Hey Ed may i ask if there is any interest in Rob Holding and Pablo Mari (Seems like Udine won‘t buy him) ?

{Ed002's Note - Pablo Mari (CB) Has made it clear he wants to be playing. An initial loan to Udinese may have been made permanent at the right price, but that did not happen. Hellas Verona offer him an option as a starter - perhaps Milan as cover.

I am not aware of interest in RH.}


3.) 28 Jun 2022 09:59:10
Thanks Ed!


4.) 28 Jun 2022 13:33:43
Arsenal remain an unattractive option? How? Raphinha will be an Arsenal player very soon. I've been told it's almost done!

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal are a poorly run club not in the Champions League. Arsenal have not submitted an acceptable bid, so it is not "almost done".}


5.) 29 Jun 2022 10:29:43
Is your opinion based on edu and the hierarchy or on the ownership appointment of roles such as DOF or VP or the coach and his team strategy, would be insightful to get your thoughts if you can spare some time.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained it all in the past.}


6.) 29 Jun 2022 13:51:33
I'll trawl through the forum, thanks for the response.


 

 

24 Jun 2022 15:30:00
Hi eds have we agreed a fee for Gabriel Jesus there's some speculation saying have
Thanks for the hard work.

smoggygooner

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware but they might well have done.}


1.) 24 Jun 2022 15:48:40
We have reached never before seen levels of advance stages in this transfer.


2.) 24 Jun 2022 17:55:35
From what I have read spurs have entered the race.

{Ed014's Note - well maybe he doesn’t mind a step down in class! ??


3.) 24 Jun 2022 18:30:25
I hope he does come but we will see im. not sure on raphina myself tho.


4.) 24 Jun 2022 18:50:35
Spurs apparently have pulled out but only because they have been told he's arsenal bound but the fee hadn't been agreed just personal terms but we need to get a move a move on and get it over the line sooner than later.


5.) 24 Jun 2022 17:47:45
Ed002, Are you aware of things changing with

(a) Raphina- have we made a second bid after the first one was reportedly rejected?

(b) Lisandro Martinez - do you reckon we could try and keep saliba and go for Martinez by selling/ loaning out Nuno Tavares?

Thanks as always mate!

{Ed002's Note - a. I am not aware of anything new. b. No, I cannot see that being a plan. Arsenal want to keep Saliba against his will and there is interest in Tavares - I am not sure how Martinez could be drawn in to that equation.}


6.) 25 Jun 2022 10:14:36
Ornstein reported as saying its agreed at £45mill looks a solid window so far guys.


7.) 25 Jun 2022 22:35:45
Ed’s. Only from what I’m reading and feeling. But I get the vibe that Saliba does not really want to be back at Arsenal.

So if my gut feeling is correct why do you think that this rumour keeps surfacing.

{Ed014's Note - because Arsenal would be happy to sell and he’d be happy to leave mate.


8.) 25 Jun 2022 21:25:58
Yes how utterly ruthless of Arsenal to expect Saliba to honor the contract he willingly signed. The nerve of this club!

{Ed002's Note - Maybe the players would be happier if the club was run so poorly.}


9.) 26 Jun 2022 01:45:16
Well Ed 14… taking your reply into consideration regarding Saliba then to me it’s a no brainer.
Sell him and let’s move on.
What’s the point in having a disgruntled player in the squad? We are trying to rebuild not build and relapse !

{Ed014's Note - the only point to having him in the squad is he’s better than anyone else we have.

If he stays and the clown gives him game time then he could well be a happy bunny.

To waste him will be a terrible decision.


10.) 26 Jun 2022 18:36:46
If saliba doesn't want to stay, just sell him. There are plenty of good options. But anyway some news surfacing that Arsenal are already talking about extending his contract, this might just p. off a lot of people who don't want to see him at Arsenal.


 

 

08 Jun 2022 08:56:26
Are we interested in both gabriel Jesus and scamacca or is it one or three other.

All the rumours are suggesting we are going to sign the real madrid kid
I can't understand why when he's more a winger than a number 10 he had a good season a good season last season but he wouldn't be my first choice.

smoggygooner

1.) 21 Jan 2021 17:13:51
Also why are we loaning players? They very rarely make much impact in half a season.


2.) 21 Jan 2021 18:07:31
I see sense in it, he can play as an AM, he’s creative if we use him sparingly along with ESR he would fit in perfectly I think. Creative players like to roam behind the strikers across the pitch just like ESR has been doing, all this “ he’s a winger” rubbish isn’t relevant for these guys they just want to create chances.

{Ed001's Note - when I have watched him, he played central and he has said that is the position he feels he is best at and where he wants to play.}


3.) 21 Jan 2021 18:36:02
Exactly Ed thanks, can you imagine if someone would have told some of the greatest creative players they have to stay in one position? They see space, make space and create passes I don’t get the cliche of but he plays LW, RW etc. In my humble opinion you cannot restrict this type of player to a particular position but you have to balance the rest of the team to accommodate them.

{Ed001's Note - agreed.}


4.) 21 Jan 2021 20:32:55
He's not going to come to Arsenal to be used sparingly.


5.) 21 Jan 2021 21:09:57
Hey 337 sounds like you were talking about Ozil 😄.


6.) 21 Jan 2021 21:32:48
GH I don’t think any young player coming on loan to the EPL expects to start every game, Dani seems to be happy to be used “ sparingly “ or he wouldn’t have extended his loan with us would he?


7.) 21 Jan 2021 21:56:21
In thr league Dani has started 10 and been subbed on in 6, plus the cup games he's been involved in. Not really 'sparingly'.
Odegaard will go to Real Sociadad to get more game time- makes little sense for him to come to us.


8.) 22 Jan 2021 10:37:14
Looks like he is coming to us. Strange signing.


9.) 22 Jan 2021 11:20:16
Like I said yesterday GH perfect fit for us and him and no layout meaning we can get our long term target in the summer. Everyone’s a winner!


 

 

02 Aug 2020 17:37:51
Hi Ed's have u managed to get together a list of potential targets yet now we know we are in Europe next year will have changed things with budget ect.

smoggygooner

{Ed002's Note - They will find a little more budget but the club has financial difficulties still. Much will be driven by leavers. Remind me in a couple of days please.}


1.) 03 Aug 2020 09:44:46
Hi Ed, is the reason you are struggling providing us a list because your not sure yourself because your not sure if arsenal are able to sell? Or is it because you simply don’t have the time?

{Ed002's Note - I don't have the time.}


2.) 03 Aug 2020 10:36:17
Thanks Ed.


 

 

12 Jul 2020 21:56:43
Hi ed are you ready to do a update on potential trial incoming and out goings yet not had one in a while.

smoggygooner

{Ed002's Note - Try toward the end of the week please.}


 

 

10 Jan 2019 20:42:54
Any truth in the vector Herrera rumours ed?

smoggygooner

1.) 10 Jan 2019 22:28:06
He is probably angling for a move and someone is probably pointing him towards us. But it will probably go south.


 

 

01 Feb 2016 21:12:31
Dunno about any of u guys but I've got to say i feel abit disappointed that we havnt brought anyone else in we are in an ideal place to win the league this year and probably would do with another signing or 2.

smoggygooner

{Ed025's Note - im with you smoggy..


1.) 01 Feb 2016 21:54:28
Same old story i'm afraid, we will probably regret it again. But all will be forgiven.


2.) 01 Feb 2016 21:57:25
We should have signed Charlie boy 2 weeks ago.

Missed a trick there.


3.) 01 Feb 2016 22:00:29
I just can't believe it this could be the last chance for years especially now peps at the helm of city probably have unlimited funds and a list of players a mile long that want to play for HIM we should of at least brought a striker in even charlie austin 4mill BARGAIN l.

If we keep sallibq I don't care yeah we need left back cover but he wasn't a left back anyway so I don't think we were actually that bothered in the first place unless Gabriel were to leave it would be pointless.

Ive got to say far to early to be jumping the gun in wenger i agree we are 1 or 2 players light at the minute a a striker and a cdm for me ide bid for berahino and i think we missed a trick in not signing shneiderlin and wijnaldum don't get me wrong in wide positions we probably have the best 4 in the epl ozil sanchez the ox and theo but i don't think anyone thought this year of the same thing that's hampered us for years INJURYS wilshere is like a time bomb as is theo what if giroud is ever out for 3 months and wellbeck we would be buggered

Remy would be a great signing at least he is proven in this league and will score goals if given the chance and we create a lot of chances it would certainly improve our goal difference and we don't have a good striker on the bench bentner is poor podolski is a wide player
