Reports we are after PapeAbou Cisse a giant centre back from Olympiacos. Never heard of him!

What is this club coming to when Granit bloody Xhaka is most likely candidate for the captaincy for the upcoming season. The days of Adams and Vieira seem so far away.

I would have gone with Sokratis, but there weren't any really good choices to be fair. Lacazette was another name I would have put forward but who would have been your pick?

It’s about time that arsenal stopped being cowards and made Bellerin my captain.

Xhaka had 2 or 3 really decent games last season which is 2 or 3 more than in his first 2 years combined at the club. He also had another 2 or 3 where he wasn't awful so perhaps Emery wants to show the rest of the squad he rewards improvement :-) .
It's only paper talk at the moment so let's wait and see but if Xhaka should be our captain next season then it doesn't bode well for us fans or Emery himself who I doubt will get a 3rd season with us if we are no better than we were last season.

That's a good question about who I would want. There is no obvious contender which is another matter in itself. Given the players we have I would put Lacazette forward personally given his work rate and determination in the games he plays in.

I agree on Laca for captain. He's not the loudest or most vocal player, but he let's his play do the talking and leads by example with great work rate.

He has a good attitude as well, but a bit of a temper. Remember that mad elbow he landed on that poor lad's chin from Ostersunds?

Laca is no captain, vice captain maybe, but we know he probably isn’t going to start every week, he goes missing/ stroppy when it isn’t going quite his way. Yeah when he is good he is fantastic and puts a shift in. For me i’d be happy with 1 of 3 Sokratis, Bellerin or Xhaka, yeah Xhaka performamces are not the best, but he does show leadership on the pitch, he shouts, he instructs, he let's players know. I would still rather we sold him, but i do believe he is our beat option, he’s also the captain of swiss national side. must do somethinf right.

Good news but doesn't really get the excitement levels buzzing as we won't see him for at least another 12 months, but good news all the same.

He hasn’t said it’s a done deal he has said it's close on his Twitter.

Whats good about this deal is that Saliba preferred us over spurs.

From what I have seen this kid could be a world beater and its been years since we have had someone so young already showing huge potential. Our 1st team is ageing and we clearly are not in a position to buy ready made talent like Chelski and the Mancs so we have to be a bit more creative in the transfer windows.

Ed02 are we interested in Everton Soares? Lots of media say we've agreed a fee for him but I won't believe it until I here it from you. Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - There is some interest but there are those at the club urging a move for Malcom as a far better option.}

Soares appears to be a quality player. What concerns me about Malcom is that he opted to join Barcelona and hasn't made it there, yet Barcelona reportedly want to make a profit on any sale. If the 60 milliion reported is correct. I would still like to see us sign Saha, as he is an experienced PL player, with virtually no risk of fitting in. The problem clearly is Palace's absurd 80 million requirement for a player worth 40 million, even in today's inflated market.
Another problem is that we have some amazing young wide players coming through and by signing a wide player it stunts their progress. Nelson will turn 20 in December and had a decent loan spell. Saka, from what I understand is rated extemely highly at the club, as is Smith-Rowe. I like the look of John-Jules as well and of course we have recently signed Martinelli who scored on his debut against Colorado.

What does everyone think of malcolm. Never really impressed me.

Malcom isn’t the player for us.

so is it safe to assume that the zaha is no longer an option?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have Zaha as their first choice - if they were to sell players to raise funds they could negotiate from a position of some strength.}

 0 0 

17 Jul 2019 15:19:18
Correct me if I'm wrong ed. But don't Zaha and malcolm play on different wings. Ideally anyway.

{Ed002's Note - No, ideally they both play on the right.}

Malcolm was quality at bordeaux, I'd take him over Soares.

17 Jul 2019 18:44:49
Ah right I'm clearly wrong then thanks for clearing that up. For me i'd like Zaha but the fee seems a bit silly money.

So ed if I can assume.

With the likes of Tierney, martinelli, saliba, ceballos and zaha/ malcolm/ soares being the ones we are interested/ hoping at bringing on. safe to assume those are our only targets and no other surprises per se?

Only asking as With the announcement from Josh Kroenke felt like neymar, messi, Ronaldo, hazard and Salah were signing on. just don't want to get my Hope's up and pre order my jerseys.

{Ed002's Note - I explained about targets - don't get me to buy into any bizarre assumptions you have.}

Am I crazy or was Eboue on tour with the club? Saw a pic with the Kroenkes and I could have sworn he was there. Hopefully they’re finding a role for him after his difficulties.

Hope so, I always felt for him after the terrible way we fans treated him.
One of the lowest points in the clubs history in my opinion when our own fans reduced one of our own players to tears on the pitch.
We all get carried away sometimes and say and do things we later regret and what we did to Eboue is a horrible memory.
I hope he gets a job with the club and we get a chance to right a wrong and give him a brilliant reception.

This Josh Kroenke Twitter letter has told arsenal fans to get excited about transfers at the end of the window. I'll hold my breath on that one.

ah rich boy tells you some made up fantasies and the peasants are in a feeding frenzy for the BS. I'm not buying it, nothing has convinced me we are improving, we are adding but we are not improving, our squad is nowhere near title calibre, and its not even potential calibre.

I would rather sign one really good player than 3 average players and then have to sell them 3 years later. we are going round in circles.

It gets better Emery saying in sky we are going for very big and expensive signings at least 4 players.

 0 0 

17 Jul 2019 11:26:38
I want to believe it. and it's not about money. its about the right players. hunger, drive, ability. Not social media divas.

I guess we have to see how this season pans out.

I'm more upset about the players we have who have no hunger, desire or drive and anyone we add will get influenced by their lacklustre beliefs.

I still believe that the ‘big 4 signings for lots of money’ will end up being, Everton, Tierney, Ceballos and Dani Alves. This is only my opinion lol but out of those 4, actual transfer fee-wise, I can only see two that would cost us an actual fee, 1 who would demand a large signing on fee and 1 who we may have to pay an amount to Madrid.
I’m ok with that, but really wish the club wouldn’t use the words like ‘very big, very expensive’ when the most expensive would be Zaha. Btw, I’m still thinking £55m plus Jenkinson and Elneny would get ya Zaha.
I get 55m is expensive, but in this market, it’s not exactly Neymar/ Hazard/ Felix big and expensive.

Hi Ed, wouldn't appreciate any knowledge, thoughts or opinions on the current internal situation? Koscielny, Torreria (? ) supposedly wanting to leave?

{Ed033's Note - ok :)

I forgot all about the Torreira stories of a few weeks back, wow that seems a long time ago now.
Yesterday's chip paper by now surely that one.

16 Jul 2019 09:11:51
The Torreira situation seems to have calmed down. I recall reports of giving him a higher salary. As for Koscielny, he clearly wants out and with a year to go on his deal Arsenal have every right to demand a fee.

16 Jul 2019 18:25:43
Was there ever a Torreira situation in the first place?
From what I remember of it get said he was struggling to learn the English language and the media turned that into he was struggling living in England which then grew into he wanted to return to Italy which then turned into his wife didn't like the English weather.
All the poor bloke ever said was he was strangling with the language.

Absolutely sparky mate but it's strange how some of the rubbish that print actually becomes fact in the memory of people.
The Mandela effect I think they call it.

You’d have thought we learnt our lesson with Lichtsteiner, a superb player, but way past his best.

Sonyou would say no to dani Alves he’s 100 times better than litch is I’d take him for a season for free.

15 Jul 2019 13:29:52
Alves has been one of the best RB’s in recent times, but Lichtsteiner won many trophies with Juve. However, Juve let him go and he looked a shadow of the player he once was. With PSG releasing Alves it may be a warning sign that at 36 years of age the intensity of the PL may be problematic.

15 Jul 2019 13:56:29
Alves has still got it, even at 36 years old or whatever he is. Absolute baller and would do a job for us for a year while Bellerin is coming back.

All that said, I pegged this one down as false from the get go. Surely a player of his prestige would be looking for a Champions League club?

How true is don't know but it's been rumoured that City want him, 36? Roger Federer showed yesterday what's possible and he's 38 on deadline day 8th of August.
