Ed 02, lots of talk about arsenal ins and outs, could you give us any insight as to why we are not moving people out, when it is clear we are willing to let players go. I think i know why but that's my opinion. Thanks for any real info.

Yes ed but people with contracts, that are not required, i'm pretty confident they are after more additions but they won't arrive until the personnel that are surplus can be removed. Eg, cambell, jenkinson, ospina, welbeck, perez and others, that if an offer came in they would be considered. I presume the obvious answer is, the offers aren't coming in.

{Ed002's Note - It takes time and there is plenty of it.}

23 Jul 2018 16:33:21
Is there much interest in any of our players?

{Ed002's Note - Nacho Monreal and Ospina certainly.}

Would like Nacho to stay. that’s a shame.

Campbell, Jenkinson, Welbeck and Perez should go before Nacho but I guess wages are a big issue.

That's been our problem for years SY paying over the odds to players who don't quite make the grade while shying away from quality players because of wages they want.
I wonder how much we paid Theo and Jack over the years for never quite making a real impact at top level? 10 million + per season between them?

Still think Jack and Tneo need to ask themselves a few difficult questions - did they do everything to maximise their god given talents or will they look back with regret. They will only know while we have opinions.

Did we over pay due to them be British or having potential or paying to make up for lack of trophies. who knows.

I think Jack will look back himself with regret in years to come while and realise he could have done muvh more to help himself qhile Theo will regret staying so long.
Theo should always have been played down the middle and under a different manager he might have achieved a much higher rating in the game.
As a winger he's in the Stuart Downing hit and miss with potential group and England squad player without ever making a starting place his own, but down the middle his pace could have made him a real threat to any team with the right coaching.
Theo took the huge money and accepted taking turns with the Ox at Arsenal rather than back himself and his ability and pace elsewhere.

Gunner, i'm afraid it was the culture club they were brought up in.

True Steve it wasn't the most glittering period of our history was it, the 4th place trophy period, ouch that's not going to read well in the history books of the future.
