Ornstein saying Saliba deal is done and about time, right, next.

sparky68

1.) 17 Jul 2019 20:51:02
Good news but doesn't really get the excitement levels buzzing as we won't see him for at least another 12 months, but good news all the same.


2.) 17 Jul 2019 21:24:15
He hasn’t said it’s a done deal he has said it's close on his Twitter.


3.) 17 Jul 2019 21:50:05
Whats good about this deal is that Saliba preferred us over spurs.


4.) 18 Jul 2019 18:26:19
From what I have seen this kid could be a world beater and its been years since we have had someone so young already showing huge potential. Our 1st team is ageing and we clearly are not in a position to buy ready made talent like Chelski and the Mancs so we have to be a bit more creative in the transfer windows.


 

 

15 May 2019 21:12:42
Any truth in the Walter Kannemann to Arsenal story Eds?

sparky68

{Ed002's Note - No idea.}


1.) 16 May 2019 16:42:31
With limited fund and wages available this summer, he may be the sort of signing we are looking to make.


 

 

15 Jan 2019 23:06:19
Mislintat leaving because of our financial position, seems like we are doomed.

sparky68

1.) 16 Jan 2019 01:58:48
Most reports say that he is leaving because he is not being allowed to grow his role into technical directorship, which Gazidis offered him on taking the job. Don't know where you got that other stuff but it sounds like nonsense.


2.) 16 Jan 2019 08:08:20
Emery makes the comment that we won't buy this window and the media make mischief, their job is to get hits and it's in our best interests to remember the media simply can't afford for there to be no news for an hour let alone a day or a week.
How would sky fill their 24 hour rolling news if they had to stay within the boundaries of the truth.
Rob Holding is injured and Theo Walcott has left Arsenal stories get 00 viewers or readers.


 

 

15 Jan 2019 20:34:21
Well according to Belgian media we have been offered Carrasco but can't afford him. Being reported on Sky Sports.

45mil plus bonuses offered for Pepe apparently.

sparky68

1.) 03 Jan 2019 21:17:59
Not sure forwards should be our immediate priority but looks a good prospect.

{Ed002's Note - He is a RW which Arsenal are looking for.}


2.) 03 Jan 2019 21:26:32
We don't have to many problems scoring compared to our woeful defence capability, i'd rather see us going after a LB and a CB.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained what is wanted.}


3.) 03 Jan 2019 21:33:01
Yes you did, that does not take anything away from the fact that we should be recruiting decent defenders as what we have are ageing and below par. Which is why i said i don't believe forwards are a priority right now.


4.) 03 Jan 2019 21:37:42
We need a winger desperately.


5.) 03 Jan 2019 21:41:36
What we need desperately is to stop shipping easy goals, we can't defend for rubbish.


6.) 03 Jan 2019 21:59:11
Ed002 I don’t think he was having a go at you mate just making a point we should be looking at more defenders.


7.) 04 Jan 2019 02:44:14
IMO we don't actually need a winger that badly. It would be welcome, obviously, but a CB (and getting rid of Mustafi ASAP) should be our top priority, before anything else.

Our best football has come when we've used the width of Kola and Bellerin as our wing play and covered for them with a back 3 and Xhaka/ Torreira. Actually finding a way to keep from shipping stupid goals would be great.


8.) 04 Jan 2019 16:42:32
I agree, our defense obviously needs work, but as Ed002 has previously explained, we have to ship out certain defenders before adding further recruitments.

We've been hit with a major injury crisis no doubt, and on the books we have in terms of CBs: Kos, Sokratis, Mustafi, Holding, and Mavropanos, with Chambers only out on loan.

If we get the chance to sign Pepe we should take it.

Feeling pretty confident about tonight 3-0 win I reckon.

So Freddie is at the helm [ good luck] What do you think is an acceptable level of performances? We don't look anything like top 4 currently but, would be happy to see us at very least looking more solid at the back.
If we make top 4 i'd be amazed on current form but, for me that would be a decent season considering.

sparky68

1.) 01 Dec 2019 21:13:38
To be fair at the start of the season we were all talking about top 3 or 4 but looking back in all honesty that was all based on potential and wishful thinking rather than anything solid or tangible.
Apart from against Nottingham forest reserves when have we really played well this season?
We have some good players but we are not and haven't been a good team for a good few years now, great club but not anything close a great team for a very long while now.


2.) 01 Dec 2019 23:45:39
I would like to feel he has a free period or clean slate to try a few things without massive pressure to get results. I hope we see obvious changes to the way we have been playing, whether it works or not. I hope Freddie remembers how a successful team can play, who get the ball back to front quickly, who attack down the wings with pace, all built on power through the middle. I hope we defend better, with two tight banks of 4. However what I don’t expect is that he plays the exact same players as the previous two managers, who have continually proved to be sub standard, namely Xhaka and Mustafi, and I was shocked to see them both in the starting xi today. Surely Freddie must understand the goodwill/ blank slate will erode quickly if he keeps picking the same clowns that helped cost the previous managers their jobs?


3.) 02 Dec 2019 08:05:00
Maybe just maybe he knows something we don't so is free from constraints of pressure and having to please everyone?
Maybe he's thinking I wonder! And giving it a go?
We will find out Thursday if unlike Arsene and Emery he's open to seeing what is there rather than what he would like to be there.

We have to do all we can to get Cellabos on a permanant deal, kid is class.

sparky68

{Ed047's Note - he’s was apparently the one who didn’t want an option to buy so I’m guessing he really wants to stay at Madrid.

We have to make the most of him whilst he’s here.


1.) 17 Aug 2019 21:00:28
The better he does the more impossible keeping him will be.
Agree with Ed047 make the most of him and let our young players learn from him and know what is expected of them if they want his job next August.


2.) 17 Aug 2019 21:13:36
Ed047 you never know, he might enjoy it more with us than he thought and if brings success then maybe he will want to stay. Fingers crossed.

{Ed047's Note - I’m hoping the same sparky because he is class, let’s hope we have a great season and he wants to stay.


3.) 17 Aug 2019 22:16:35
Will we have any money to buy him?


4.) 17 Aug 2019 22:26:41
I'll setup a crowd funding.


5.) 17 Aug 2019 22:39:51
Will Real be prepared to sell if he's outstanding in the premier league?
We always knew it was a fling and not a fully committed relationship where we would both live happy ever after together:-) .


6.) 17 Aug 2019 23:07:18
Money talks G62 and if he was in their plans he would never have got the loan deal. So let's hope!

{Ed047's Note - if he does become available I’m sure we’ll find the money.


7.) 18 Aug 2019 00:02:33
Does that mean Nelson who went out on loan last season and Eddie who is on loan this season isn't part of our plans Sparky mate?

Was David Beckham not part of Uniteds plans when he went to Preston?
It's very much a business deal that suits Real Cellabos and us right now and who knows it might turn out to be a ( pretty woman happy ever after ) but it might every bit as much give Real a wake call or alert PSG or juventus to his ability.
Dreaming is fine as long as you know not everyone else might share your idea of a perfect ending.

Take it as it comes enjoy it while it lasts and if your dreams come true fantastic but don't be upset with anyone but yourself if it doesn't end up how you hope.


8.) 18 Aug 2019 08:58:51
Im hoping he stays but I fear Madrid will have him back great player tho but I want to see if he can do it against Liverpool.


9.) 18 Aug 2019 09:49:02
Agree Stephen mate he's a lovely player to watch but he's not and never was our player to keep hold of, we are just very fortunate to have him now.
Our time would be better spent looking for his replacement next season rather than pinning all our hopes on him choosing us over Real should he have the season we all hope he will have in our shirt.
It's a one night stand and we new that from the beginning and anyone who kids themselves he will turn his back on Real for us is only setting themselves up for future heartache.
Enjoy it for what it is.


10.) 18 Aug 2019 19:06:19
To be fair mate Eddie and Nelson are just starting out and gaining experience, Ceballos is a proven talent and can't force his way in at RM. i'm hoping we can persuade him and RM to do a deal as he is a breath of fresh air.


11.) 18 Aug 2019 20:03:18
I hope your right Sparky mate I really do but if he does as well for us as we all hope he will then he will have lots of really good options open to him not only at Real but most of Europe's elite.
I just think be realistic and only ask of the club realist aims then we can only be pleasantly surprised if he was to become our player outright.

Ozil and Kolasinac out of the NUFC game due to ongoing police investigation. Ozil been caught stealing a wage for 3 years.

sparky68

{Ed047's Note - 😱😂


1.) 09 Aug 2019 20:31:15
I don’t get that at all, milking it or what.

{Ed047's Note - the report insinuates the Police are looking into other “incidents” so god knows what’s going on. What ground can they then guarantee their safety.


2.) 09 Aug 2019 21:09:14
There are incidents towards players every game, I find it a bizarre and a bit snowflake generation.

{Ed047's Note - you’d maybe understand it if it was just Ozil but Kolasinac is a tank and didn’t look like he was bothered in the least.


3.) 09 Aug 2019 21:26:11
Totally agree he was up for more whereas Ozil was cowering in the corner.

{Ed047's Note - it’ll come out that Ozil is a gangland boss and Kolasinac is his body guard come hit man!


4.) 09 Aug 2019 22:28:46
All joking aside, these are normal guys with families etc. If a knife was pulled on any one of us we all react differently. These guys are scumbags and likely to threaten them in their homes or outside their kids schools. It’s a bit more than just some verbal abuse from the fans.


5.) 09 Aug 2019 23:03:15
Cowering in the corner? These people had knives! It's not a 50/ 50 tackle on a football pitch Ozil ducked out of here it's a life freterneing situation in a real life Street!
I don't know why there is still a threat but maybe there is stuff we don't know about, the club seem to be very supportive of them both so before anyone judges their bottle maybe wait and find out the reality?
Everyone's a tough guy until it happens to them in my experience.

{Ed0333's Note - Superb post mate and insightful perspective. Everyone’s Pablo Escobar behind a keyboard but I bet a large majority of people laughing at Ozil would be the ones handing over their, watch, wedding ring, wallet and begging for their lives if it happened to them in real life.


6.) 10 Aug 2019 01:04:39
Yeh I've got to say it's a bit of an unfair and harsh view on it. The guys got attacked and we don't know the full story, but the soppy little snowflakes should just suck it up and get back to the truly important things in life, like playing football.


7.) 10 Aug 2019 01:09:43
I imagine it’s not their decision.


8.) 10 Aug 2019 07:10:29
62, I had a smashed bottle aimed at me about 4 years ago outside a pub and got told to hand my phone over he got told to F off, a day later my tyres were slashed on my drivec ( same guy ) - I identified him and he got sent down .

Guess what I still went to work - without bodyguards outside the house so yes, stop being a snowflake and go to work . oh I have 3 small children also living in the house.

How can playing on a pitch be of a threat to them unless a sniper is in the stand . I find the whole thing bizarre.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know whether that makes you a hero or an idiot bambam..


9.) 10 Aug 2019 07:59:51
Circumstances are circumstances if he had a gun it’s a different story, the guy was drunk he knew I did kick boxing he backed down, Kol stood up and fair play to him I guess everyone has a different mentality and approach, I just don’t understand the not playing bit have they been assessed mentally?

{Ed047's Note - in reality whilst we may have joked about it lightheartedly yesterday, incidents like that, no matter how big and brave you are, can lead to mental trauma, PTSD potentially.

In the cold light of day they were highly likely in a life or death situation faced with two guys with sizeable knives and no one could blame Ozil, in those brief moments, from doing everything to protect himself and his wife, including ensuring they were secure within his car.

Kolasinac as brave as he was could easily be affected after the incident as much as everyone else involved and the “further incidents” can only heighten any potential distress.

They will definitely be having some kind of assessment and probably something like CBT counselling.


10.) 10 Aug 2019 12:19:53
One person who might rush into a burning building to rescue another person might not have the compassion to buy a homeless person a meal or sponsor a child they will never meet in a country they will never visit.
Hero's come in all shapes and sizes and imagine a world where everyone would be happy to save a child from a burning building but then be equally happy to let that child starve to death afterwards?
We all have different strengths and the vast majority of us are all heroes to someone somewhere at different times in lots of different ways throughout our lifes.
