Hey Ed002 I hope you're well? I'm sure you've said on many occasions that monreal will leave and that it's time for him to move on, but I read that we are "desperate for him to sign a new contract to avoid losing him for nothing" is this nonsense or has our stance changed, thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Yes my expectation is that Monreal will leave and certainly Real Sociedad are willing to take him on. I am not really hip to contract discussions and would need to ask, but unless Arsenal wish to keep him there is no impetus for him to sign a new deal if Arsenal want to then sell him at a profit. If Arsenal start looking to treat players in such a way, then it will become harder to recruit players.}

Thanks for the info Ed 😊.

There were reports at the end of last season that the club were looking to acquire a left back, so it comes as no surprise that we are still looking at left backs, such as Tagliafico at Ajax. As far as Monreal goes, he will be 34 in February and has always lacked the pace needed for a top modern full/ wing back. He can fill in at CB as we have seen, which is a plus.
With players leaving this summer, such as Cech and Ramsey, others underperforming, simply not good enough or do not fit into Emery's methods, I believe that with a limited budget, particularly if we fail to qualify for nest season's CL, we may have to retain certain players, even if they are not ideal. Amongst these may fall Monreal.
We clearly need a CB, a wide attacking player and a creative mdfield player. With the reported £40m budget, I cannot see more than 3 signings, hence Monreal may have to be retained, assuming he wants to stay.

Seri to Fulham seems like a massive coup for them!

Good morning eds, any news on adil?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything new.}

1.) 18 Jun 2018 09:08:41
OK thanks mate.



01 Feb 2018 23:42:15
all the info i have seem on the length of ozil, mikhi and aubas contracts seems to be 3 and a half years, is this right? it seems mad to only tie down your record signing and the player you have broken your wage structure for to reasonably short contracts, we will have to give them massive pay rises again in 2 years or risk going through the same thing as we have this year all over again. especially as ozil knows how to play it to a tee.


1.) 02 Feb 2018 01:32:51
I think age might have a factor they are all approaching 30 so makes sense.

2.) 02 Feb 2018 14:52:01
Clubs are giving shorter deals as the wages have risen to such high figures and in the cases of Ozil, Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang they will be entering their 30's during the term of their deals. The thing that makes no sense is the absurdly transfer fees paid for players that only have 3 and a half year deals. So Aubameyang will cost a combined total of around £87m in wages and transfer fee, for only 3 and a half years.



03 Jun 2017 22:56:57
"Juventus have agreed a deal with Arsenal to sign Wojciech Szczesny for €16m (£14m) . He is seen as the long-term heir to Gianluigi Buffon. (Sky in Italy) " interesting if true, i haven't seen much of him in italy anyone know if he's improved alot? if he has we need a replacement for cech in the not to distant future so that could be a mistake.


1.) 05 Jun 2017 01:00:01
Szczesny has improved massively at Roma and Ospina looks to be off. I reckon Wenger will try to keep Szczesny as understudy to Cech in the league and play him in Europe/ domestic comps, and look to replace Petr after the end of next season (just my guess) .

Mikel Arteta on if Smith Rowe is in his plans: “Yes. I look at him and what happened, in the last two seasons especially with him, what happened three seasons ago as well. ”

“Take all that. It’s the best thing that could’ve happened for him in his career if he uses it in the right way now, so don’t look back and say, ‘if, if’, no, this happened, use it. That was the best thing that could’ve happened. ”

“‘I had a great moment, I had a difficult moment, now I know what I want and how to deal with that. That’s going to make me a much better player’. You can see of a player that we have in him when he’s fit and playing at that level. ”

Great advice for anyone really.


1.) 05 Apr 2024 13:37:51
Absolutely Eden, it's not the events that happened in our lives themselves but our thoughts and opinions about those events that cause us the most long term damage and suffering. If we continuely tell ourselves negative unhappy stories about life then we will naturally be negative unhappy people but if we let go of life's negative events quickly and move on from them completely then the future and our happiness is all to play for ????.

2.) 05 Apr 2024 18:59:24
I was so happy to see ESR start and then I wondered. How does he break through to the first team on a regular basis? Pretty difficult with Havertz and Rice always in front of him.

Curtis Jones:

'The gaffer, the way he fist pumps the crowd, that’s kind of our thing, ' Jones told the BBC when asked about the scenes in north London.

'If they want to be stealing our stuff, it shows we’re on the right path if they’re copying us. '

Celebrating invented by Liverpool.


{Ed014's Note - what an absolute W⚓️ shows they’re on the right path my arse! ?‍♂️?

Arteta has his own personal way of celebrating and it isn’t copying what Klopp did in Dortmund if that’s what Liverpool want to do!

They need to suck up the bitterness!

#celebratinginventedatDortmund ??

1.) 09 Feb 2024 17:55:57
I can see his point though, Imagine if any club was to steal a song from a musical film and try to pass it off as theirs and theirs alone, now that would be ridiculous act of plagiarism surely and worthy of mention.

{Ed014's Note - now that would be embarrassing! ?

Just shows how little Mr Jones knows about the history of his club.

2.) 09 Feb 2024 18:55:36
Is he the one that has a Kevin keegan hair do.

Hi Ed014 mate, I can't believe all the fuss and nonsense about how a club celebrates a victory.

Obviously I could understand it a club, any club celebrated in a racist, misogynistic, politically insensitive manner because that would be a national embarrassment provoking questions being asked in thr house of commons, but to my eye's nothing remotely close to anything like that took place. All I can see is that some people's over sensitive over inflated egos have been offended by their inability to accept defeat with good grace.

Those who are still moaning almost a week later are surely an embarrassment to their club and the vast majority of their fans who would just want them and everyone else to get over themselves.

{Ed014's Note - couldn’t have put it better myself mate, you have it absolutely spot on!

4.) 09 Feb 2024 20:10:03
Hi Ed014 mate, if the boot was on other foot and any of our players, ex players or fans were behaving in this way I'd be cringing with embarrassment wiling them shut the fudge up and stop making our club a laughing stock.

I genuinely feel for all rational and reasonable Liverpool fans like Bill who had the humility and courage to come onto this page last Monday and congratulate us.

{Ed014's Note - it’s a shame as always thought they were a decent bunch. Bill a genuinely top bloke though.

Just a shame some can’t take a defeat and have to be endlessly bitter about it!

Thankfully I don’t do social media as imagine that’s been pretty sad!

5.) 09 Feb 2024 21:00:44
Me neither Ed014, twitter has absolutely no appeal for me whatsoever mate.

{Ed014's Note - think that would drive me nuts having that! ??

Jesus is back! Great news! Fingers crossed he doesn't get a set back.


1.) 22 Nov 2023 20:48:02
Fingers crossed indeed, as much as the player might have wanted to play…as the club paying his wages n with him still being in rehabilitation I would have done my upmost to keep him at the Colney rather than have him risked against such a rival as the Argies??. Unscathed let’s hope ?

Tbf D16 after we missed out on Mudryk, we did sign Trossard, so I guess then we wanted cover and competition for Martinelli which we have now.

Thanks ed, so for example if Girona and city qualify for the CL, would Girona be excluded and if they are, would they drop to the Europa League or be totally excluded?


{Ed002's Note - The City Football Group do not have majority ownership of Girona.}

That would arguably be the biggest statement of the lot! Upgrading a position we didn't really need to. 2 30+ mil keepers fighting for number 1, can't see them both being happy though! ?.

We've been linked with Bruno Guimaraes and De Jong, while I don't think either of those are very likely. Hopefully that's the type of calibre we are going for to replace Party, Gallagher is decent, good leadership and may become great, but at the minute I don't think he would improve us and would arguably be a step down. I'm hoping we don't skimp on that position and get the best possible player available.

I saw this summary by the Swedish Rumble, I have no idea how accurate it is:

"There is one reason and one reason only why this case is not settled yet. When the PL launched the procedure for the 115 charges, City made sure that it got stuck in the courts for almost 3 years challenging every technical aspect it could to delay it.

A summary:
November-December 2018: The Premier League write to City requesting certain information and documents in relation to potential breaches of their rules — known as the information claim. City object to the request — after what has been published by Der Spiegel/ the Football Leaks.
21 August 2019: The PL issue a complaint against City, since it has still not received the documents and information it has the right to receive under the Premier League Rules and which City refuse to give the PL access to. City responds by challenging the PL's disciplinary system, challenging a technicality (only highly regarded barristers could be elected for the commission) .
22 October 2019: With the documents and information not forthcoming, the PL begin arbitration against the club seeking a declaration that they are contractually obliged to provide them. The club try to stop the arbitration by arguing to the tribunal involved that the PL had no power to start it. They also claim that the tribunal does not appear impartial.
26 June 2020: City issue an application in the Commercial Court repeating their argument that the tribunal lacks jurisdiction on the information claim and is tainted with “bias”.
2 November 2020: City’s claim that it has no obligation to to pass on the requested information and documents to the PL — is rejected. It’s clearly stated in the rules that they must do so. The order to provide them is however postponed pending the outcome of the Commercial Court case.
17 March 2021: In the Commercial Court, Mrs Justice Moulder more or less summarily dismisses the club's challenge to the jurisdiction and impartiality of the tribunal, dismantling the City’s lawyers arguments clearly hinting that it was felt that it had abused the public court system. She refuses permission to appeal her judgment.
24 March 2021: Mrs Justice Moulder said her judgment should be published, in order to reveal the lengths to which City had attempted to resist passing on information to the PL. City successfully seeked permission to appeal the decision to make the information public in the Court of Appeal. So we get another delay (I think you are starting to get the drift by now, it’s an appeal of an appeal of an appeal about a pure nonsense technicality. On a side
30 June 2021: The Court of Appeal opens its hearing into the club's appeal against publication. The Court of Appeal handed down its decision dismissing the appeal.

So it took the PL almost three years to just have it sorted out that it has the right to receive the information the Premier League Rules clearly states that City must submit to the PL. After this, we know that City made another challenge of the impartiality of an experienced barrister in no way connected to the Premier League, in KC Murray Rosen. How much delay this caused is unknown.

During this time, City was also sentenced by UEFA for failing to produce requested information and delaying procedures. "

They gave him the London manager of the year award in December! ? What's the point in an award for the year, that contains 2 half seasons, then giving it to someone who'd only been in London half the year, not knowing how the season would end, bizzare.

Jorginho also hasn't been a total flop SW, had some very good games, we'd probably have been screwed this season without him.
