I heard lacca might be going I hope not I'm hoping he starts playing upfront with auba.

1.) 29 Aug 2018 21:15:54
It's possible but I'd guess paper talk and nothing more, no mention of Xhaka or Iwobi going and I guess that's because they've had a poor start to the season and no one would panic if they did leave but Lacasette is looking good so is hit worthy news.



05 Aug 2018 10:27:51
Perez looks like he is going sporting Lisbon for 4.5 Mill well cheap but at least gets wages down.

1.) 05 Aug 2018 11:52:44
Another player, that was an absolute waste of millions and millions of pounds.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 13:06:21
Feel sorry for the lad, he was a pawn in a PR game but he desperately wanted a chance to prove himself for us.
I personally don't think he was good enough for premier league top 4 hopeful club but that wasn't his fault, we signed him and he had the right to expect a reasonable chance.
The lad was treated badly in my opinion.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 19:10:59
And now he could be joining west ham what the hell.



03 Aug 2018 14:43:57
I see iwobi signed a new long term deal.

1.) 03 Aug 2018 15:28:50
Woop woop.

2.) 03 Aug 2018 15:55:36
Jay jays nephew! Yey lol.

3.) 03 Aug 2018 21:17:56
So that's Xhaka and Iwobi both given long term deals, ummm I can see where this is going
We should be releasing Pea on a free anytime soon for over achievement:-)

4.) 05 Aug 2018 02:29:25
Emery clearly has seen enough in Iwobi and Xhaka to extend their deals and I was impressed by Iwobi against Lazio.

5.) 05 Aug 2018 11:20:00
Rg, maybe, they were both discussed and things put in place before world cup and pre Dick. He may not have had any say.

6.) 05 Aug 2018 20:19:17
It makes no odds as to who's decision it was to extend their deals if they don't produce Dick will be blamed for keeping them beyond this season if they don't improve.
Dick has a one season free pass then as of next summer it's his gig entirely, luckily he doesn't strike me as the type to make excuses for himself or accept them from others either.



10 Jul 2018 17:20:42
Hi eds is the young French kid likely to sign this week as well do you know as I thought he also has had a medical with arsenal.

{Ed001's Note - I expect so.}

1.) 10 Jul 2018 18:30:24
Video circling showing him signing contract, nothing official as of yet.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 19:49:24
Thanks Ed and sonogoal.

{Ed001's Note - I have to be honest, I don't know why they didn't do a double dip announcement.}

3.) 11 Jul 2018 05:43:10
That's what I thought they would of done I can't see any more coming in now unless a few leave glad w done all transfers early this season.



28 Jun 2018 18:50:39
Ed is torreira coming to arsenal or is there still stuff to be done as some are saying done deal some saying not done have you any idea thanks.

{Ed001's Note - it can't be done until he does a medical and signs. Done deals are when it is all signed and sealed, so ignore anything saying that other than official site. It is pretty much agreed and he is expected to sign.}

1.) 28 Jun 2018 22:23:33
That's good enough for me, everything that can possibly be done at this stage has been done by Arsenal and we can't ask for more than that.
We all want it comfirmed yesterday but a world cup year always calls for more patience than ever.

2.) 28 Jun 2018 21:05:17
Ed can we get some info on Caglar Soyuncu please? Or any further targets?

{Ed001's Note - all I know about him is that he is keen to join and Arsenal are trying to sort out a deal. The problem is that the two clubs are not quite on the same wavelength in terms of price.}

3.) 28 Jun 2018 22:53:28
Thanks for the reply Ed mind is more at ease now.

{Ed001's Note - it is one of those deals that is being held up by the World Cup mate.}

4.) 29 Jun 2018 05:34:24
OK thanks.

{Ed001's Note - welcome. Just hope he doesn't play too well and someone jumps in and gazumps you!}

5.) 29 Jun 2018 10:35:15
Thanks Ed!

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

6.) 29 Jun 2018 10:37:56
I hope so to ed.

{Ed001's Note - should be quite a new look to your side next season, going to be interesting.}

7.) 29 Jun 2018 13:58:28
Yeah it's going to be weird not seeing wenger though do you see more than the Greek guy guy and this midfielder coming in Ed.

8.) 30 Jun 2018 11:48:51
What have you made of our business so far ed? . I think it has been sensible thus far! Looks like we are addressing areas that every tim dick and Harry have been pointing out for years.

{Ed001's Note - looks a big step forward to me. Be interesting to see how things go next season.}

9.) 30 Jun 2018 13:49:41
I hope so ed. I not be the optimist but I think we will be in the mix for top four.

20 Aug 2018 13:11:26
Sorry for spelling but wouldn't marchisso be worth signing as he is a free agent the old juv midfielder.

1.) 20 Aug 2018 14:43:07
Can he play right back or center back.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 15:49:56
Holding mid, experianced but i don't think he would cope with 90 minutes in the Premier League, think Yay should be considered as well.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 16:30:57
This is all sounding desperate!

4.) 20 Aug 2018 16:34:11
Yaya would find playing for us a piece of cake.

5.) 20 Aug 2018 18:09:33
Proper desperate and I like what you did there 62πŸ˜‚.

6.) 20 Aug 2018 18:59:38
I think it's the 35 gold plated dimond studded candles that could be the sticking point Stoner mate :-)

7.) 20 Aug 2018 19:44:06
Could you say the same about Stephan Lichtsteiner who seems like a good signing.

8.) 20 Aug 2018 20:15:07
Yeah but Liechtstiener is strictly a pie new socks and a pint man no card or cake and cuddles called for SY mate.

9.) 21 Aug 2018 06:12:33
Surely he would be better than xhaka.



09 Aug 2018 13:56:16
Looks like just out goings no incoming today shame think we needed more.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 17:50:29
How many more, get too many then it takes a lot to integrate everyone.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 18:09:31
Some of these β€œfans” will never be satisfied. Considering the kind of budget management was allegedly working with the window was a huge success.



09 Aug 2018 08:29:37
Hopefully we get another cb and a winger today but I ain't holding my breath on any coming in today.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 10:56:40
Agreed. Loaning Chambers and selling Perez leaves our squad too light in my opinion. Our first choice attacking options are great, but after that its Welbeck, Iwobi. that's it. not good enough.

Same with CB, Mavropanos and Holding are our backups until Jan when Kos is back.

Cant help but feel like we've messed up here.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 16:59:07
Perez going has hardly left us light, how much was he? Β£13 million with a goal return.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 18:31:19
So our attacking options to fill 4 positions:

Augbumeyang, Lacazette, Welbeck, Nketiah, Ozil, Iwobi, Mhkitaryan and Nelson.

Those backup 4 are likely going to be Welbeck, Nketiah, Iwobi and Nelson. i'm sorry but that is simply not good enough. Not saying Lucas Perez was the answer but we should have got somebody in.

Compared to our rivals bench/ squad its not good enough.

City - Gabriel, Mahrez, Bernardo Silva
Spurs - Llorente, Lucas, Lamela
United - Rashford, Martial, Mata

We start to lose afew through injury (which we definitely will) and we're buggered.



06 Aug 2018 10:12:16
I bet all the eds are happy the transfer window shuts early and thanks for all your hard work guys.

{Ed001's Note - it will just mean all the talk will be of outs for a few weeks.}

1.) 06 Aug 2018 12:33:30
I'm not sure how the Eds feel because it's you who are on the receiving end of all the questions etc, but I feel this summer has been a little more sane with a dramatic decrease in random bizarre crazy questions about random players many of which in the past have been impossible for anyone to know, like does " Ronaldo ever have reacuring dreams about playing for Arsenal one day " :-)

{Ed025's Note - you dont see the ones that get deleted G62..

2.) 06 Aug 2018 14:27:14
Ed025, have a question about this transfer window for you mate.

Is it double glazed?

{Ed025's Note - no sharpy...but it can be pane in the arse at times mate.. :)

3.) 06 Aug 2018 14:49:10
Fair comment Ed025 mate, I can only imagine there are some bizarre ones mate :-)

{Ed025's Note - there certainly are G62, some you would not believe mate..

4.) 07 Aug 2018 04:13:43
At the end of the window you should put them all in a round up article of questions asked by muppets, could be funny! πŸ˜‚.

{Ed025's Note - i will try and keep some mate..

5.) 07 Aug 2018 13:56:31
Do you ever get asked "are we going to sign Jesus Christ as i hear he is good on crosses" Ed?



25 Jul 2018 17:19:38
Do you see ozil or Ramsey as our number 10 next season.

1.) 25 Jul 2018 19:16:14
It's both of thems best positions but Mesut is better at it, I see no where other than there where Aaron is better than decent, in midfield the Scorpion kicks are fantastic and runs into the box are excellent but the game saving tackles are non existent.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 20:12:47
Ozil is our best 10 by far but ramsey is more versatile from deeper.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 22:38:37
Ramsey is an attacking minded player who in big games might chip in with a bit of graft, cup games ect with a medal attached but ultimately he's only interested in being involved in the goals for column not stopping goals against, the deeper or wider he's played the weaker Arssnal become.

Supporting the attack is his game and supporting the defence just not in his natural make up.
Pea Miki Ozil Ramsey Lacasette fitting them all into one attack comes at a cost elsewhere and that elsewhere is team ballance and success.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 00:21:03
I agree g62 I think it's hard to fit more than 3 of them in without giving too much work for everyone else. But that's the main thing I hope emery does differently to wenger:either has a magic wand to wave that makes everyone put a shift in and stick to the jobs they're meant to or doesn't bother picking those that don't because their names look better. I'm also really hopeful mkhi can get close to his dortmund form, if he can get close to that, then he should be well ahead of Ramsey too!

5.) 26 Jul 2018 09:30:21
Ramsey for me is a bit like Xakha decent enough squad cover but not good enough either as attking midfielder or defensive midfilder to really make a difference in the big games. Ramsey performs best in the Ozil role but just not as good as him and Wenger squeezed him in out wide too many times to the detriment of the team balance. If he is not commited sell up and get either a proper winger or another DM as I think in hard away games you need 2 better defensive midfielders.

6.) 26 Jul 2018 00:21:03

7.) 26 Jul 2018 11:24:20
Personally I'd go for

Pea up top with Mesut and Miki behind him Eden mate, but then again I'd play 3 4 3 too as I think it covers an awful lot of areas where we are not yet as strong as we hopefully will become in the years ahead.
I know that isn't Dicks style and that's cool but it's just my preferred formation when you don't have all the players you need to play as you would ideally want.

Well said Ed imaging we had some one like Henry or Wright on front of ozil he would get the most assist by far just we ain't gut the finishers in the team to show how good ozil is.

{Ed001's Note - I don't understand why gets so much grief. No one had even spotted how many chances he created until the stats guys pointed it out after he became the scapegoat.}
