Hi Ed,

Hope you had a good Easter weekend. Is there any interest in PEA, and any interest in moving him on?



{Ed002's Note - I had a good weekend thanks Alex but obviously I don't recognise Easter. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyangadingdong (S/LW) Arsenal were kind enough to give Aubameyangadingdong a nice new contract 6 months ago - it is unclear why, but coming up to 32 it would not have given a boost to or protected his value meaning that which he sucks £350k a week out of the club the future is pretty bleak unless he wants to move to China or to Turkey. Dropping wages and seeing his time out in the graveyard of elderly strikers at Inter Milan or perhaps Manchester United might be an option but there is no obvious interest.}

Thanks Ed.

Hi Ed,

When Bellerin goes, do we have a replacement lined up?



{Ed002's Note - No, not lined up.}

1.) 26 Feb 2021 21:41:13
Thanks Ed. Can you speak to targets?

{Ed002's Note - Typically there will not be targets for players who may just leave. The likes of Aarons who is a true target for others may be of interest.}

2.) 28 Feb 2021 22:45:16
ED, early days but arsenal need to sign Martin Odegaard right? Are arsenal interested making the deal permanent. I suppose the better question is, would real and he be interested in making the deal permanent? I’ve read he’s really happy at the club.

{Ed002's Note - There is no option and Real Madrid will be looking to save some money and likely hold on to him next season whilst others are sold.}

3.) 28 Feb 2021 23:16:40
Ed, would you have a rough figure of how much odegaard would likely cost at the end of the season should he become available? I’m struggling to think what the figure might be, I reckon between 30-40 mill.

{Ed002's Note - I can only guess because there is no plan to sell right now - and that would be perhaps £35M.}

4.) 01 Mar 2021 00:20:06
Really appreciate the response Ed!



18 Feb 2021 14:02:22
HI Ed,

Know how you had to speculate, but was curious if there is a likelihood that Odegaard's deal is made permanent? Mikel seems smitten.


{Ed002's Note - Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Arsenal beat Real Sociedad to a loan in January but have no option to buy. Real Madrid are happy to including him on a lengthy list of players that they are open to selling or including in exchanges - and that may suit Seville who have a player that Real Madrid are showing an interest in. Ideally Real Madrid would like an auction for him but will seek €40M for a cash sale.}

1.) 18 Feb 2021 20:06:52
Thanks Ed.

Hi Ed,

I know you have provided a list of departures, and it includes Lacazette. Curious if you can elaborate on what'S happening at centre forward. Are we still in for Odsonne Edouard? YOu have said (lamentably) that Donyell Malen wouldn't happen.

Can you please provide a bit of insight?


{Ed002's Note - Yes, interest remains in OE.}

1.) 08 Feb 2021 05:15:02
Thanks Ed.

2.) 08 Feb 2021 09:44:02
When would a move for the Celtic forward likely to happen ed of you know.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about timescales. And remember there will be interest from elsewhere.}

3.) 08 Feb 2021 12:34:24
Thanks ed,



01 Feb 2021 15:01:07
Thoughts on AMN to West Brom? Will he benefit from Fat Sam? Is there any path for him back into our squad and where does he play if so?


1.) 01 Feb 2021 18:45:08
Hopefully leads to a deal as he’s not good enough for us.

2.) 17 Feb 2021 17:30:52
Given we are not exactly blessed with an army of outstanding players, I would consider that assessment of AMN a little harsh. He has rarely been played in his preferred position, where he has arguably deserved a punt.

{Ed047's Note - where would you see him in a midfield 3 UC?

Just wanted to say, to my fellow Gooners:

Be respectful.

Ed002 is back (no offense ED014, we love you too) . We get his or her insight. Ed may not always get it right, but we enjoy what he or she brings (mostly the hope that our Gunners might get it right, coupled with the pessimism that they probably won't) , and enjoy the banter from each other.

You are not entitled to that insight, or that banter. It's a privilege, not a right.

We are a funny little community, drawn together by a stupid love of a club that only breaks our hearts. So please, everyone, be cool.


{Ed014's Note - haha and none taken Alex, ed02 is a wealth of genuine knowledge and information and it’s a huge bonus he’s here to share what and when he can.



13 May 2021 22:38:22
Hello Ed.

Does interest remain in David Raya?



{Ed002's Note - Probably not.}

1.) 14 May 2021 17:50:35
Ed, you're the hero we need, not the hero we deserve.

Thanks very much.



11 May 2021 19:44:34
At the risk of being contrarian, I actually think the future is bright.

Gabriel, Holding, Martinelli, ESR, Saka, Tierney and Joe Willock Are a great young core to build around. Pepe and Partey need to do more, but they're talented.

Nelson and Balogun I think have a lot ot offer, and Nketiah still has a ton of potential.

We need consistency in net, reliability at RB (and LB - injury) , and there needs to be an improvement at CM, something isn't working with XHaka and Partey.


{Ed014's Note - don’t forget Saliba along with Mavropanos and for me it’s a shame Guendouzi and Torriera can’t be part of a squad going forward.

1.) 11 May 2021 21:04:01
We need to clear the ground, lay good foundations and have a manager who can get the best out of the young crop - that requires decisive ruthless action or these roses get drowned out by weeds.

2.) 11 May 2021 21:25:02
Blimey SY4, what’s with the gardening analogy’s, have you been binge watching Gardeners World again?

3.) 11 May 2021 21:57:33
Who knew SY4 stood for Sewing and Yielding in all 4 seasons!

4.) 12 May 2021 00:55:17
You trying to herb my enthusiasm

If you don’t get my analogies immediately, take your time and read between the vines.

5.) 12 May 2021 07:48:02
Very good SY 🖒.

6.) 12 May 2021 09:48:24
When a flower fails to bloom, you fix the environment it in which it grows not the flower.

The Ed’s are privy to more than we know, and receive abuse and comments from all manner of people who act with impunity. If it was said, it must have been with reason.

Saw the post on the City site. My goodness. Whoever pissed off Ed, give your head a shake. You're ruining it for the rest of us.
