Fabrizio Romano posted this today:

Arsenal are following William Saliba's progress closely - they are really happy with the French centre back. ?? #AFC

Arsenal told Saliba weeks ago that they trust him 100% for the future, he joined OM on loan to play all games as starter then he’ll be back.

So we've voiced out discontent on this move very often. Does make me happy regardless of whether he should've gone on loan or not that he seems to have a future at arsenal.




27 May 2021 14:06:04
Interesting news from the journalist ramano who is usually spot on. Said xhaka has offers to leave as does bellerin. Also willian will 100% be leaving. Going to be a busy summer.


1.) 27 May 2021 14:26:29
Massive summer D16 which could see us revolutionise the squad entirely. It's great but only works if we buy sensibly. Soumare for example - moving to Leicester for what 21m? We need 4 or 5 sharp signings like that imo.

2.) 27 May 2021 14:33:55
I'm reading Mourinho is after Granit 16.

3.) 27 May 2021 18:45:50
Glenn, d’ya know what. I was thinking the same mate Soumare for £21m is an absolute steal. Leicester are about to work miracles once again by the looks of it.

They really do remind me of Arsenal of old, the way the clubs run, the way they conduct themselves and there scouting network is unreal.

4.) 27 May 2021 19:36:14
I wish Granit to stay I think he’s a good enough player and could improve slightly he’s just too cautious. He may be humble enough to play some supporting role loves the club and have experience.

People on here were wishing Holding be sold in the summer and I warned we may need him from January onwards, which proves to be the case. Although we have less games to play next season I think we need an experience or more solid defender.

Pepe will continue to improve as his psychology change, maybe it’s having a child and wanting to create a legacy plus it appears he’s getting extra in training.

My reservation is in the striker position because PEA has been found out. Keep him to his left and not let him get the ball on his right and he will fizzle out especially losing pace as he aged.

Looking forward to that shark pod Ed! Just wondering if you had any transfer info on Eduardo Camavinga. I keep seeing arsenal. Linked with him and meant to be quite the talent!


{Ed002's Note - He certainly will not be moving to Arsenal.}

1.) 16 Apr 2021 10:36:38
Because we are crap Ed or because we aren’t interested?

2.) 16 Apr 2021 12:02:01
Thanks Ed. Probably just the usual click bait rumours. Meant to be a really good player.

3.) 16 Apr 2021 15:11:00
Dags where was you last night when we was superb?

Or do you only turn up when things are not good?

4.) 17 Apr 2021 03:56:41
I do not think we will get him but Edd I am sure you said Pepe would definitely not be moving to Arsenal at one point.

{Ed002's Note - Sure, no problem. Obviously I have been misleading you so I won't provide any more information to the Arsenal page.}

5.) 17 Apr 2021 11:16:30
Just be honest mate. Beating one team doesn’t mean anything, let’s not be naive.

6.) 18 Apr 2021 11:19:34
Well done RG.



03 Oct 2020 12:27:38
Still getting people usually spot on telling me aoaur and partey will joining. Leaving it late aren't we.


1.) 03 Oct 2020 12:30:56
Hi Ed, with Marc Roca now going to Bayern, do you still expect Atletico to want arsenal to pay the release clause? Or do they have another replacement in mind?

{Ed002's Note - It changes nothing.}

2.) 03 Oct 2020 12:59:25
I font think we will mate.

3.) 03 Oct 2020 13:05:29
Thanks ed.

4.) 03 Oct 2020 17:10:59
D16, we don't have enough players leaving to be able to bring 2 in bud.

5.) 03 Oct 2020 20:29:56
Glenn is absolutely right here.
We are at 19 in our squad with Non HG Above 21 players whereas it can only be 17.

So we need 4 to leave to get 2 in. Even if we had all the cash.

Torreira, Kolasinac, Sokratis are the closest out.

Means we can only sign 1 even if all 3 leave.

Not being able to Move These 3 early, add Mustafi, Chambers, Ozil, Matteo to this might be the reason we did leave it this late?

Would be interesting as to which 2 we sell or leave out of our squad if it doesn't happen till the end. We might be forced to let Torreira join AM for a loan fee without Partey/ replacement by the likes of it.

Mismanagement in all levels by the hierarchy in place at the club.
Eds were right about it being a mess all along!



27 Aug 2020 15:12:01
There's a photo shoot being done today. May have even finished as there was pictures around half idea who it is I presume gabriel or aubameyang.


1.) 27 Aug 2020 17:51:38
After I've posted this I saw Ian Wright online saying he was on the way too the Emirates for the BBC. Was probably them haha.

2.) 27 Aug 2020 18:15:29
Yeah it's easy to forget it's the charity shield Saturday so I'm sure there will be a lot of media attention around Arsenal and Liverpool over the next few days D16 mate.

As many of us have I've been very impressed with ramsdale. Especially with his young age I've really enjoyed seeing him. One thing I'll love to know from Ed001 is I'm sure recently you said yourself or a friend said his distribution is poor. Was that right? Think it was in the summer. Was that something you still think as from what I've seen I've thought his long range passing has been exceptional

Just thought be interesting to see your take on his first few games. Early days I know!


{Ed001's Note - I said he struggled with playing out from the back at Bournemouth and lost confidence. It took him a while at Sheff Utd to rebuild it, but there he wasn't asked to play out from the back, so it was impossible to judge how he would get on. So far he has done ok, but it is early days and his confidence has not been tested.}

1.) 23 Oct 2021 12:16:39
I think Ramsdale has done brilliant and certainly silenced a few people who judged him by his fee rather than on what he did in an Arsenal shirt, same for Ben White actually.

I agree it is very early days still and i personally find claims of Ramsdale already being England's number 1 already as crazy as the claims that because both Burnmouth and Sheffield United were relegated with Ramsdale in goal that proved he was a useless keeper we had wasted 30 million on him.

It's always best to wait and see how a player does over 3 to 6 months before declaring them anything one way or the other.
In my opinion because of their price tags both Ramsdale and White were judged unfairly before they even had chance to kick a ball but equally both are slowly but surely convincing people to listen to Jessie Js advice after all.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea who Jessie J is.}

2.) 23 Oct 2021 13:06:06
She sang a song called Price Tag, Ed001 mate.
She suggested people should forget all about the price tag and think for themselves and make thier own choices rather than being told what they should like or think by other people especially the media and big brands.

I was so impressed I bought her Album and every bit of Jessie J merchandise I could get just to prove how others could not influence my choices, then a week later took it all to the charity shop, my choice of course ???.

{Ed001's Note - sometimes you worry me mate.}

3.) 23 Oct 2021 13:23:05
Your lucky Ed001 mate, at least for you it's only sometimes.

I worry me constantly ????.

4.) 23 Oct 2021 18:07:05
That was it Ed! Hasn't seemed like that at all to me but as we said early days isn't it. Hopefully the confidence stays and I don't get to see the side you've mentioned. Thanks for the reply.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. Hopefully he will continue to prove me wrong.}



26 Sep 2021 19:27:17
Superb today. Faultless all over the pitch. Could mention every individual player today but one I must mention is ramsdale. We look so much better with him in goal.

Commanding and passionate with a worldie of a save at the end. Given the amount of stick he got when we signed him I'm happy he's proving many of us wrong!


{Ed014's Note - 100% I get the impression our defenders love him, he’s instilling some steel into our defence.

1.) 26 Sep 2021 21:38:39
? where have all the “ waste of money “ merchants gone? The modern game is not just about buying individual superstars and sending them out on the field, I don’t like to blow my own trumpet ( raver has mastered that from the scrubs stint) but what ramsdale offers is much more than just a decent keeper, he offers confidence, sharpness and great distribution as well as being vocal for one so young. Like I said a couple of months ago a very good signing ?.

{Ed014's Note - what’s your thoughts on Lokonga, Tomi and White?

Ramsdale has been very very good, I really like Tomi and Lokonga but still a little undecided with White. I think that’s probably down to my frustration with Arteta for not using Saliba though as he’s not done a lot wrong.

2.) 26 Sep 2021 23:36:19
Sambi and White still need to show a lot more for me but I like early signs from both Tomi and Ramsdale

Great first half today and a stable back 5 - no tinkering please boss

Well played pea.

3.) 26 Sep 2021 23:36:53
Hold on to ben white, he is doing good but it’s not his time to shine yet. He will shine the brightest and for long time…. Soon, very soon.

4.) 26 Sep 2021 23:40:23
Not aimed at me but I’ll Chuck my 2 cents in anyway lol… Ramsdale Is already winning over his many many doubters in such a short space of time… he’s really impressed me like most have said more for the way he commands the team being so young, tomi looks like an absolute bargain and I’m sure Tottenham are kicking themselves over passing the opportunity to sign him, I think arteta clearly knew exactly what he wanted with him and his knack for dropping in to make us a 3 back when needed then instantly reverting to a 4 when under pressure and were reaping the rewards… lakonga I’ve seen less of but what’s impressed me with him is the quick turns and release of the ball, he doesn’t seem to mind receiving the ball when someone’s closing him down and whilst inevitably it means he’s gona occasionally lose the ball in the middle when he gets away from his man it creates a lot of space to carry the ball in the middle. white is a tricky one, I think he will struggle when he doesn’t have a powerhouse next to him but him and gab compliment each other well… said it before but these youngsters could be the basis for a truly great side… God knows we’ve suffered so to have even the optimism that we could once again start knocking on the doors of CL spaces is enough to make me an excited gooner again….

5.) 27 Sep 2021 07:13:35
Ed, I think Tomi looks a cracking signing didn’t see that one coming sambi and lokonga also look like they can play, reminds me a bit of when our scouts used to actually go and find a real gem of a player that nobody had heard of.
White? Not sure, however he’s looked a lot better next to Gabriel.
Saliba, I have no clue ? there must be a reason and I’m sure it’ll come out one day ( bit like raver will too) ??.

{Ed014's Note - agree totally just not sure Sambi and Lokonga are two different players! ??

Saliba is just a mad one and I really hope he and Arteta get over what ever the problem is.



20 Sep 2021 12:54:35
Couldn't see a post on this. So apologies if I've missed it. But anyone see our u-23s. Beating Chelsea 6-1 and we had a player sent off at 32mins. Big achievement that is seeing as the Chelsea u23 have a good team!


1.) 20 Sep 2021 16:43:51
Haven’t seen that D16 mate…. any way of watchin it back? Would like to watch that ??.

2.) 20 Sep 2021 18:54:57
It’s on - lovely goals from Biereth and nice assist from Balogun.

3.) 20 Sep 2021 21:31:39
Happy days, thanks mate.

{Ed014's Note - watched it earlier, a great result.

4.) 21 Sep 2021 17:03:24
Yep great result Ed14 and a great performance from the boyz COYYG ❤️?.

{Ed014's Note - especially when down to 10 so early, incredible really.



11 Sep 2021 17:17:31
Not convincing but happy to get a win finally.
Big balls on dropping leno! Couldn't believe aside from auba the oldest player was pepe at 26! Not sure the lack of experience is worrying.




01 Sep 2021 09:13:32
Now the window is shut can we get rid of edu. Think we've failed massively this summer especially with the outgoings.


1.) 01 Sep 2021 09:27:59
Get rid of the lot of them. Top to bottom. The board are absolutely clueless.

2.) 01 Sep 2021 09:58:55
We have 2 choices between now and when change arrives.

Laugh our way through it or cry our way through it.

For now, it is what it is and we can't change it.

The only choice we have is what effect it has on each of us personally 🖒.

3.) 01 Sep 2021 10:10:09
A good lesson for life 62 :)

4.) 01 Sep 2021 19:28:25
Absolutely Sally,

Two Buddhist monks set out on a 5 day walk and before setting off they take a vow of silence for the full 5 days of thier journey.

On the second day they see a young girl in her wedding dress trying to cross a muddy road without getting her dress dirty, despite the fact all monks take a vow to never touch females, the older monk picks up the girl and carrys her across the road and puts her down on the other side.

The two monks then continue their walk in silence, at the end of day 5 the young monk turns to the older monk and says " you shouldn't have done that "
The older monk asks "done what? "

" carried that girl across the road " replies the young monk "

The older monk says " wow are you still carrying that young girl, I put her down 4 days ago.

Bit late to this conversation Ed but I was wondering if there's any chance arsenal might offer lacazette a new deal. Or he might want to stay if that wasn't the issue. With the last few games seems he's coming back into the team more.


{Ed002's Note - He needs replacing.}

Ed002 I thought the squad registrations had to be finalised when the window closed. And with regards to registering free transfers arsenal's squad was already full.

Feel free to educate me there 👍.


{Ed002's Note - As long as the player was a free agent during the previous window and there is space in the squad.}

Pretty sure we can't even register him. Nonsense story.

To be fair I thought aside from him having parteys shooting boots on he had a great game. Certainly justified being picked.

Awful isn't it. Know we won the game but could well have cost us points another week. Twice its happened now. That kick on saka the other week now this. 2 missed red cards i'd say.

Do think he's more impressive when given a free role rather than sitting at 10. That being said I do think his ball control when he's running with the ball is outstanding.

Have no time for him to be honest. Constantly talking about arsenal and having digs at us. Also finding him more arrogant by the game.
