Ed02 despite saying that we aren't getting Pépé I remember you was the first person to mention we are interested.

{Ed002's Note - At that time nobody realised Arsenal would start spending money they have not yet earned.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Exactly Ed. I just saw a few people said you wer wrong but know one could predict that we would start spending next seasons money.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, a number oif people have pointed out that I have been wrong. It results in less shared.}

If you call something wrong and people get excited about it then it only goes to show how little you get wrong in general.
No one takes any notice of sky talk rubbish or any of the papers because they are almost always wrong about everything they report without exemption.
Ormstein doesn't always get it right, I remember a few seasons back people on social media were really excited and celebrating Ormstein getting something wrong, sad but in a weird way it's a compliment.

That’s a shame Ed. I for one really appreciate your work on this site.

{Ed002's Note - I tried to explain things as they were but the abuse easily comes. So I have to perhaps say less going forward.}

I've been saying we'd sign both Zaha and Tierney all summer, if I'm proved wrong then it just goes to show there really is a first time for everything :-)

Sorry to hear that Ed. Its a shame a minority have to spoil it for everyone else. Your insight is well appreciated here.
It was Ornstein himself that first reported the 45m budget and most people reckon he is mr. reliable.

Don’t go all Aristotle on us Ed - we need you.

Ed, please don’t devalue the site by not posting what you know. You have to be prepared to be wrong to be right. Everyone appreciates your input also no with th3 other Eds. Postings generate interest and chatter. To be fair, we can all give it out and a little stick shouldn’t detract from all the appreciation others have. I won’t suck up as that’s not right but let’s not have the minority ruin a good thing. Too many people have invested and are vested in the site.

I actually found it really interesting as to why you were wrong as I learned more about the club strategy from that. I got thinking about bloody Leeds spending UEFA money before they earned it but then I thought - how clever as Chelsea can’t spend this year which just leaves us With a monopoly on players wanting to play in a London. that with spreading payments over a few seasons mean we can compete more this window which I like.

So - thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

Fair point Paddy, humans do tend to be fallible, i'm ever so human myself :-)
