Hi ed002. Happy New Year

Although most like your recorded previews, I prefer you've written summarys.

My question is have we any serious targets in January, or is going to be the same old bollox as usual.

{Ed002's Note - The club would like to add players but timing is not something I can sensibly comment on. The major issue in January is that clubs do not plan to sell their better players and clubs know how difficult it is to replace them. Arsenal have dug themselves a hole over contracts and really should have let Oezil and, particularly, Sanchez leave last summer. Now they are stuck with getting a return on Sanchez without a suitable replacement. They know that the GK situation needs addressing but the players they were considering are dropping off as I have previously explained. At CB a bid has been rejected for Benatia so a decision needs to be taken. In midfield there are ideas but no commitment and then we have the wide and attacking midfield issue that won't go away - and maybe Oezil is delaying something happening. Again a striker needs sorting out. With the two management additions changes will come of course.}

Forgive me please Ed, but to which management changes are you referring?

{Ed002's Note - Raul Sanllehi and Sven Mislintat.}

Sanllehi to start in Feb. That's a good appointment! Although 'head of football relations' because Wenger hates the term 'Director of football' haha.
Lemar and Leon bailey would certainly show inent but 2 prolific signings in 1 transfer window, let alone it being January with a club that is falling to pieces is highly unlikely.
A lot of positives but the situation is only set to get worse before it gets better. In numbers we have a squad full of players that either don't want to be there, have contacts about to end, are too old and need to move on or just aren't good enough! Sanchez (gone) , Ozil (contract) , Giroud (fed up) , Wilshere (contract) , Walcott (not good enough) , Koscielny (aging, achilles) , Mustafi (not happy) , Monreal (aging) , Per M (retiring) , Elneny (not good enough) , Le Coq (not good enough) , Cech (aging) Chambers (not good enough) , Debuchy (not good enough) . Need i go on? We have no back up for key players (some of which aren't top quality anymore anyway) in my opinion. Long road to success yet at Arsenal FC!

Ed02 I know we all like to moan on here, but from your previous comments it appears that you very much rate Raul and Sven, and that we should be very happy that both have chosen to join the club at a senior management level?

{Ed002's Note - Yes you should have a warm feeling about them Epping (if that is your real name). Just to be clear - this is a different warm feeling to that warm damp feeling Arsenal supports have on the inside of their legs.}

Ha ha, yes Ed, i had that latter feeling when we went 2-1 down to Chelsea last week! But its nice to cling-on to some positive news for a change.
