Another fine performance from our medical team, Santi now out for season for a kick on the ankle.

Why do our players stay injured for a lot longer then other teams players?

Just look how fit jack has been when kept away from them.

I would bet money jesus is back before him at man city.

Ed any developments of arsene? Loads of newspaper outlets believe he's staying all of a sudden?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any decision being made at this time. And I am certain the club has not been told of any decision just yet - and they would like one.}

Morning Ed002,

Thanks for answering my question regarding Alexis yesterday.

Just one more thing I'd like to ask as you've said Alexis may leave in the summer.

Is it down to the ability of the club being unable to cerstain a challenge in any major competition?

Or

Is it that the club have refused to meet the salary Alexis has asked for to renew his contract?

Look forward to your response and thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Players are transient employees of the club and come and go. He is in a position where he wants to be winning at the highest level and it is a sensible time to look at his options and move on.}

Ed do u know the reason why arsenal players want arsene to sign a new deal?

{Ed002's Note - Maybe they are not like the fans?}

Some fans ed 😊.

I guess it depends on what type of player you are. Some players are hungry and want to win things and others are happy with good money and don't like being shouted at! Some fans want the premier league and some fans just want to finish above spurs. Horses for courses.

Sanogo I keep seeing people say that and I got to say I've never seen a fan just wanting to finish above spurs. I'm sure they exist though.

Evening Ed002,

Is their any update on Sanchez making a decision on his future?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I understand from someone senior in the Arsenal structure that the expectation is he will leave Peter.}

21 Feb 2017 17:27:58
If I could add a question to that one Ed. Any idea if that'll be end of the season or end of the contract.

{Ed002's Note - The end of the season.}

Going to be really tough to replace him with just 1 player.

I remember the Eds saying Reus would be looked at if Alexis was to leave. Reus is a great player but he has injury problems!
We'd probably have to sign 2-3 players just to replace him tbh.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal has been continuing to watch Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal and have now spoken with Lyon about his availability in the summer.}

 0 0 

21 Feb 2017 20:45:29
are you able to say who's interested in Alexis at this moment Ed?

Another question is what about Ozil? Do you know if he is wanting to leave? Or if the club would be willing to sell both in the same window

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Juventus and PSG are very interested. Inter also has an interest but may have an FFP issue.}

Ed on ghezzel I thought he was out of contract in the summer or has he signed a new one? Also are we interested in lorenzo insigne? He would be a good sanchez replacement. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He is but Lyon are still hoping for a new contract. Arsenal want to know what the situation is. Right now he has also been disciplined by the club.}

 0 0 

21 Feb 2017 21:57:29
Oh ok cheers Ed. Can I ask what he was disciplined for?

{Ed002's Note - Ghezzal got a red card in injury time for a robust dispute with St Et's Fabien Lemoine.}

Is there still interest in Nabil Fekir from Arsenal?

As much as I'd hate to see Alexis leave I can't really blame him, we've been lackluster for a few seasons.

Hopefully we'll actually improve the first team this summer, even if it means spending money to only slightly improve a position.

{Ed002's Note - Too late now.}

Q if Wenger loves the club like he says, would he really walk away without a manager lined up / in place? . I was always convinced he would have a say in the replacement and he wouldn't leave us high and dry because Arsenal is his family . maybe I have been fooled by his BS . but in my head reality is I believe he will stay and get a suitable replacement lined up.

 0 1 

20 Feb 2017 15:15:01
When Wenger decides to go, he will go. He may offer some advice on his replacement, but when his days are done, it's up to the board, not Wenger to select his replacement.

{Ed002's Note - His opinion has been sought and he has discussed options with the board about who may next be manager.}

20 Feb 2017 18:35:44
If Wenger loves the club as he says he does be'd do the honorable thing and tell the Board he is going at the end of the season. Of course, he may have done that although I strongly suspect that even if he has "in secret" it would have leaked and we'd know.

20 Feb 2017 17:15:03
I know this won't be popular but I'm glad he will have some input ed. he clearly loves this club and no doubt wants to leave his position in safe good hands. don't suppose you've ever caught words of who he is pushing for?

19 Feb 2017 11:23:29
If Wenger has said he wants another 4 years in management and his preference is Arsenal . There is your answer, he is a cash cow for Arsenal . The board will want Wenger to stay.

My wife is Italian and works at an Italian law firm and all the buzz about the place, was that Wenger is off and Allegri has been approached. Time will tell.

Lanesra really what an inane comment. The law firm concerned is one of the top firms in Italy and any deals involving Italian footballers and managers will involve a big Italian law firm and if that firm have London offices then it is clear that they may involved or serious rumours emerge. Not some waiter in your local Italian restaurant.

I agree RG. But my uncles ex wife's son works as a ball boy in Turin and he has also said that allegri is going to be our new manager so you info seems correct.

Ed i have honestly tried to read the posts to find the information about the first manager we tried getting to replace arsene but got backfired. Would u please just say the manager name, i don't need an explanation mate.

{Ed002's Note - It is really not worth the grief for me to explain anything that happens or has happened regarding the manager - it will lead to trolling and grief for all.}

We have approached of one manager, but that has been rebuffed by a third party representing him.

Another option is Allegri.

Thomas Tuchel?

16 Feb 2017 22:47:31
I think the board will look to appoint someone young enough to lead the club for 10+ years, they'll also keep with the attacking football and will want someone who integrates youth.
Ed has told us Allegri would be on the shortlist, he also told us Simeone would be at Atletico still next season so we can stop naming him.

Personally I think it'll be one of Tuchel, Jardim or Allegri.

Hopefully we'll all be on our best behaviour and Ed will enlighten us once more.

{Ed002's Note - It would take a lot to get Allegri to agree to go beyond 2022.}

16 Feb 2017 23:16:26
Thanks for the reply Ed002. Any chance you'd want to give us your opinion on who Arsenal should be looking at? I think most of us find it interesting to hear your (and the other Editors) takes on things.

Seems to be a general consensus around Allegri that he's a much better manager tactically than Conte, and I suppose Juventus' champs league performances are a testament to that. Even if he only stayed until 2022 I think he'd be a great appointment, although Tuchel would be my first choice!

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that the club are looking at their options for this summer and the offer of a two year deal last summer was of no interest to Wenger (and to some extent there was a real big deal at the time so it was understandable) - but 2018 would have been preferred by the club and suspect it is still preferred. I have explained about a couple of those who the club has considered - but there are others, and the opinion of Mr Wenger has been sought. If you want my fear, it would be that M Wenger takes over as a Director of Football and mentors one of two potential replacements who would likely be willing to accept that scenario.}

I'm guessing Vieira is one of the 2 in the scenario that Wenger becomes DoF. Please tell me Remi Garde isn't the other, that could be a recipe for disaster!?

Thanks for the info Ed002, greatly appreciated.

Ed, i dunno if your an arsenal fan but in your opinion who would u say is the best fit mate? Only your opinion cause i value what u say mate.

{Ed002's Note - Allegri would be ideal if Wenger were to leave this year.}

Guys Chelsea fan out here. I watched the game between arsenal and Bayern. Sometimes u need to step back and see where the fault lies. 4 out of 5 goals were basic defensive errors. Agree that Wenger must share some blame for not dropping many non-performers. But having said that the board is also equally culpable of retaining these players. There are not many who can seamlessly replace wenger. Actually I feared when mourinho was sacked. Conte has done well luckily and got the players in line. But u guys need to pray for that to happen. Because whoever comes in needs to address the player issue first.

Cheers for opinion ed. Allegri would be a big change, he's a lot more ruthless. One of his mistakes, for me, was selling Pirlo to Juventus from Milan due to his age making him surplus requirments. Wenger would never do that, look at Arteta and the like.

{Ed002's Note - Coaches in many of the European sides have much less say on transfers than M Wenger.}

Remember we signed Walcott, Ox, Ramsey, bellerin giroud for peanuts years ago. Wenger has worked with them for years to get them to their current level. Giroud was the most expensive at 12 mill. Simply we are too loyal to average players instead of selling them and buying better ones. That's why wenger needs to go. He is not ruthless enough and it's cost us over the years.

15 Feb 2017 23:47:38
The fact that you still have Walcott, Gibbs, Wilshere etc. Still pickingg up top wages at the club is a disgrace. Wenger has taken loyalty to another level.

If Arsene is to leave come May as Wright has predicted would Arsenal have to make an announcement in advance like Man utd did with fergie.

He basically said that he spoke to arsene and gets the feeling that he will leave this season. Ed i checked the old posts and didn't find your opinion on the topic, can u repeat it please?

{Ed002's Note - I explained in the past couple of days that the club are making provisions for him to leave as planned this summer - but they would have liked another year out of him.}

Am I right in thinking ManU had to announce it as they are on the New York Stock Exchange? I hope the Wenger contract is resolved swiftly either way at the end of the season to allow plenty of prep time in the summer.

I can't believe he's actually going to go. Ed i'm sorry i really don't know how to use this website but can u tell me the list of candidates plz. It will be the last question because i know u hate repeating urself.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that evrytime I have explained what has happened so far and what the options might be the vegetables come out of the woodwork and wreck it for everyone. I have explained previously that approaches have been made to two people and that the first told a third party acting on behalf of the club that he would not welcome an approach. The second is Allegri as I have explained.}

I think we need to stick to our guns keep faith in Wenger. I hope he signs another 2 year contract. We have been in a very dark place. We are coming through and can see the light but let us not abandon our leader.

Let ozil and ramsey go, in order to bring back wilshere and asano back from their loans.

10 Feb 2017 16:11:27
I agree Ramsey should go because I think he's losing out by staying and could be twice the player we've seen at a different club. Sadly we can't give him that and we're not prepared to cut him a lot of slack, but matches like Watford last week only entrench those views further.

Letting Ramsey go and using more solid midfielders behind our number 10s is surely a reason to keep Ozil though. When the team's playing well as a whole, Ozil tends to exemplify that. We'd be mad to let him go if he wants to stay and would almost definitely get better with more stable reinforcements backing him up in our midfield.

But hey, who needs that kind of prospect when they can just recall Takuma Asano this summer (visa issues aside) and it'll be a case of 'job done'?

I think the problem with Ramsey, and the same applies to oxlade chamberlain is that they actually try to get us playing, so much of our play is sideways and backwards passing, but these two actually try and get us playing, and when they are caught in possession it gets highlighted. I really like both and think they are much better than us arsenal fans give them credit for. We've seen how Ramsey performs for Wales and I think it's because he is allowed to just go out and play without pressure. Maybe us fans should lay off him, because he looks like he's trying too hard, which is never how you should approach a match.
