Any truth about us wanting Joelson Fernandes Ed’s.

{Ed002's Note - Joelson Fernandes (LW/F/RW) another possible Jadon Sancho replacement that has been considered by Borussia Dortmund but they were not impressed by the non-negotiable €45M cash release clause or Sporting saying that they are discussing a new contract with his "agent" which will see the release clause double. There is a potential legal issue if his agent deals directly with any other clubs because of his age, but approaches have been made to Juventus, Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea but none are keen on such a huge investment for someone who has had only a tiny amount of experience at first team level. If Arsenal are willing to spend that amount on a player who would certainly be behind Bukayo Saka for a while it would be a bold move and a giant hint that Kia Joorabchian has really got a hold on Edu and Arsenal.}

Heard he might be available for a lot less that the quoted fee Ed. Probably a load of rubbish but agree left wing isn't really an area we need to strengthen with saka and martenelli.

{Ed002's Note - He has no experience at the top level even in Portugal and even if Arsenal could sign him for half that, they get a 17 year old and won't have money to strengthen elsewhere. It is beginning to look like Kia really has his hooks in to Edu and Arsenal - and his fees will be significant. Arsenal need to sort this entire managment shambles out.}

Hello Ed,
Surely Arsenal can't be that incapable to realising that it's exactly that, a shambles? Or are they just in denial because everyone else can clearly see it? You've got an owner who's just in it for the business/ money and that's not exactly going well either so why isn't anything being done 😂.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with the owner - it is the structure of the management under the board.}

25 Jul 2020 12:37:28
Exactly. So surely the owner must be looking at this and thinking to himself - 'what's going on here? '. Or is he just as blind as those underneath him? .

{Ed002's Note - It really does not work like that.}

25 Jul 2020 13:10:34
Can you please explain a little then Ed? It just seems like there's all these issues that people keep going on about but no one can pin point what they actually are and who's ultimately accountable 🤷🏻‍♂️.

{Ed002's Note - It has been done to death before - the structure is a nonsense.}

I understand the structure is nonsense I really do, but I can never find a detailed article about why and what's causing the issues. I keep telling people that the structure is nonsense but never have any facts as to why and can't justify it. Why is the structure nonsense? What makes it any different to other clubs? I'd like to understand fully and appreciate your knowledge on the subject mate.

{Ed002's Note - I don't really want to get in to this but Head of Football Sven Mislintat decided it was a shambles of a set up and walked out - Steve Rowley had previously done the same for the same reason and indeed the incoming Raul Sanllehi oversaw the purchases of David Luiz and Nicolas Pepe for outrageous sums. Managing Director Vinai Venkatesham (responsible for the funds which have been misused), technical director Edu and Chief Negoiator Huss Fahmy are among those jostling for position with Francis Cagigao who was promised a promotion to become overall head of scouting after Steve Rowley decided the set up was a shambles at Arsenal. So what does Edu do? It is a shambles. Kia Joorabchian is a happy man though.}

Interesting. I can only imagine they expect player sales to make enough money to strengthen the needed areas. Would like to think they won't waste most of if not all the budget on a 17 year old with potential.

25 Jul 2020 22:54:28
I see. Message understood Ed thanks for the response to that, I know it's frustrating with people asking but it's appreciated. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thanks Ed, great info.
Can I push you to go one step further and ask you to explain why Kia Joorabchian has become the go-to? . because it looks like the level of inadequacy/ incompetence and lack of cohesion between Edu and co has them pandering to a football agent who has no interest in the financial implications for the club, obviously.
If this is true it’s a sorry sorry state of affairs and we are haemorrhaging funds to a shower of bluffers.

{Ed002's Note - Because of Edu - who should not even be there.}
