Hi Ed, are arsenal interested in buying Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth) and Willian (Chelsea) ?


{Ed002's Note - Obviously if Pepe leaves Arsenal will want a first pick replacement. Clubs have spoken with Willian directly but his preference is to stay at Chelsea.}

1.) 01 Apr 2020 11:41:33
Ed, you mentioned Pepe. Surely they’ll give him another season at least. I personally feel for him this season.
1. Emery was in charge and changed his tactics and team every week. No one was performing consistently. And 2 he makes so many runs of players but never gets the through ball. People seem to only want to play it to his feet because of how skillful he is. He’s rapid and they need to lay it through like they do aubamayang because he can shoot. And correct me if I’m wrong but his interception numbers are good so he does do the defensive work.

{Ed002's Note - I would have thought so but people seem obsessed with replacing him with the likes of Willian. Arsenal massively overspent on Pepe utilising the stash of money put aside for something else. It was extreme stupidity but given the ridiculous set up at the club they may well continue to make mistakes. I have no idea what his "interception numbers" are but in simple terms he was not ready for the significant step up and Arsenal continue to be in a serious mess.}

Thanks Ed.



27 Mar 2020 11:05:16
Hi Ed, any truth that arsenal want Carlos Soler from Valencia?


{Ed002's Note - I have answered this before. "Carlos Soler (CM/RM) interest of Spurs and Manchester United has gone but Arsenal could give the player a move to the Premier League - if a reasonable fee could be agreed with Valencia."}

1.) 27 Mar 2020 11:30:02
I searched in first but I didn’t find it- thanks still.

2.) 27 Mar 2020 14:06:38
Honestly, I thought I had seen it previously, but when I searched yesterday, nothing came up.

Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - At least you know now Alex.}

3.) 27 Mar 2020 22:18:23
Note to Arsenal, right club, wrong player. If you going to call Valencia the conversation should be about Geoffrey Kondogbia.

4.) 29 Mar 2020 14:02:33
Or ferran sorriano? I think. but we got plenty upfront.



21 Mar 2020 23:31:27
Hi Ed, any truth that arsenal are in for N'Dicka from Frankfurt?


{Ed002's Note - Evan N'dicka (CB/LB) has been scouted by a number of sides including Milan, Arsenal, Marseille, Sevilla, Valencia and Nice. It has been suggested that Milan would be open to an exchange for Andre Silva. Arsenal have certainly not approached his club as they will be no more than fishing just in case Pablo Mari does not work out and they really don't need any more CBs with Saliba returning. Marseille want to replace loanee Alvaro Gonzalez with a left footed CB. EF will not want to sell.}

1.) 22 Mar 2020 12:20:05
Thanks Ed, do you reckon we’ll keep Mari?

{Ed002's Note - Pablo Mari (CB) is a cheap and cheerful addition that Arsenal will probably look to take up the option to buy him. It saves the need for another CB to be added.}

2.) 22 Mar 2020 22:29:55
Thanks Ed! We don’t even know if he’s good yet, he’s played one match!

{Ed002's Note - But there are other questions like is he a good fit. DL is a real nice guy who will look after him.}

3.) 23 Mar 2020 10:23:16
Thanks ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



10 Mar 2020 16:54:36
Hi Ed, I saw your latest post about Aubameyang and wanted to know if your stance has changed regarding him leaving?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed at this point aside from Barcelona moving on to another.}

1.) 10 Mar 2020 19:13:50
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



27 Jan 2020 18:17:23
Ed would you be able to provide us on details of Mari? Reports are reporting that the deal is off?


{Ed002's Note - As I understand it certain parties in Brazil were expecting a sale and a single payment - which would allow Flamengo to complete a deal for Barbosa but Arsenal stepped back from that requesting an initial loan - giving rise to the thought it might be touch and go over a Work Permit. The player was committed to being back in Brazil today for post winter break testing - which all players have to do.}

1.) 27 Jan 2020 20:01:53
Thank you ed.

{Ed002's Note - Could still happen - the amounts involved are low and they can find out about a WP beforehand - but they know it is on the cusp.}

2.) 27 Jan 2020 22:13:30
Isn't he Spanish?

3.) 27 Jan 2020 21:28:22
Thanks Ed. Would you expect that to possibly be arsenals only business in this transfer window?

{Ed002's Note - I really can't say - but as I explained before money is tight from previous purchases so the bargain basement is where the shopping is going on.}

4.) 28 Jan 2020 08:28:07
Defensively we are down to the bare bones. With matches coming thick and fast after the break, an additional CB would be ideal. Hopefully a deal to secure Mari can still be agreed.

5.) 28 Jan 2020 14:06:03
Hello Eds,
I see that Flamengo have now signed Barbosa. Has there been any developments with the Mari deal which has allowed that to happen?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, it is nothing to do with Mari.}

6.) 29 Jan 2020 00:11:12
The guys Spanish and was at city for three seasons . If he can't get a work permit Brexit really was brexit 😅.

Hi Ed, I just saw your post about the season possibly getting voided on the Liverpool page. I think you've discussed this early but u may have gotten more information now: if the season gets voided do Liverpool not win the league? And 2, I assume that champions league and Europa league for next season will be based on the standings for last season, knowing Man City are banned (this may not be solved fully next season) will arsenal be in the champions league?


{Ed002's Note - That is not what I said. The situation is unchanged. Liverpool are not going to be awarded the league title in they don’t win it. I would not make any assumptions - and Manchester City have not had their appeal heard.}

1.) 28 Mar 2020 20:51:16
Personally I can't see a champions league happening next season at all.
Even if domestic football does return in 2020.
Widespread European and international travel must be the furthest thing from all counties minds right now.
DG I can't imagine for one minute Arsenal Football club would sink so low as to even comptemplate looking to capitalise on a world wide disaster.

2.) 28 Mar 2020 23:03:29
Thanks Ed. 62, arsenal can sink to any level mate.

3.) 29 Mar 2020 04:22:29
Wtf dags, what sort of club do you think we are?
We are an old Etonian club that was built on values
Hang your head in shame for coming out with such a statement.

4.) 30 Mar 2020 00:05:14
I’ve hanged it in shame Malaga.



25 Mar 2020 11:57:52
Hi Ed, is the Coronavirus going to affect transfer? Such as clubs no longer spending huge amounts of money because of loss of revenue etc?


{Ed002's Note - For lower league clubs it will make things difficult. For the clubs operating at a loss or near to the limit, they it should do. For the higher profile but not cash rich clubs, then probably not. But for the cash rich sides they will be in a position to do pretty much what they want - but unless prices drop they may decide not to.}

1.) 25 Mar 2020 16:03:06
Thanks Ed, what category are arsenal in? I’m guessing high profile?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal are high-profile but made a mess of the summer by spending money they did not have for buying players in expectation of making the Champions League. They won't and are now paying two coaches, paying off coaching staff, plus the issues related to the shutdown. Financially the club are far from in a good place.}

2.) 25 Mar 2020 16:38:06
Thanks Ed, you just made my day.

3.) 26 Mar 2020 10:00:18
Ed quick question about Aubamyang. You said he wants to leave but did arsenal want him to sign?

{Ed002's Note - Yes Arsenal would like to stay.}

4.) 26 Mar 2020 10:20:46
Thanks Ed, any reason why you deleted the other half of my message?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}



12 Mar 2020 10:13:21
Ed I wanted to ask, there's this Nigerian business man who always talks about arsenal and said he's serious about buying arsenal in 2021. Do you know anything about him or should we just take this as big talk no action?


{Ed002's Note - His name is Aliko Dangote and I would not concern yourself with it.}

1.) 12 Mar 2020 12:27:51
He just needs us to send him a small upfront payment first so he can release the funds.

2.) 12 Mar 2020 14:18:53
Thanks Ed. I can see your getting a bit annoyed with people asking questions with the league being suspended but with the developments of today (Leicester players showing signs of the symptoms) surely the time has come to suspend it? Or what’s your own opinion on the matter? Any Ed feel free to comment.

{Ed002's Note - It is getting very tiresome.}

3.) 12 Mar 2020 14:27:31
Brilliant Eden :-)

4.) 12 Mar 2020 16:23:32
Hahah eden too funny mate.

5.) 12 Mar 2020 16:39:26
I really do respect your opinions on this page g62. You are one of the few who really say it as it is but I'm really shocked that you would encourage Eden's stereotyping in the name of a joke? Or do you not see it for what it is?

6.) 12 Mar 2020 19:11:13
I'm sorry dElly, I didn't mean to cause any offence or stereotype.

7.) 12 Mar 2020 19:12:38
Hi dELLYOsh mate, it's funny in my book because it's not aimed at causing offence to anyone anywhere or cruel in any way shape or form. I was born and bred in a maket town in the fens and there are loads of jokes about us all being inbred, most of them of boring but some are absolutely brilliant and I love telling them to my friends and family (basically the sane thing really) , as I said to cousin, I mean sister, I mean wife last night, calm down and give me a high 6 :-)
It's like anything mate take things as they are intended abd if no offence is meant what's the problem?

8.) 12 Mar 2020 19:34:10
I don’t understand the stereotype. would someone care to explain?

9.) 12 Mar 2020 20:00:07
Some people prefer digital music, some records, some CDs - stereotype

Based on the type of music you enjoy - we poke fun at you. We being southern softies.

10.) 12 Mar 2020 20:10:13
DG, it's an assumption that as a Nigerian, he is a fraudster. That's what makes the joke sour.
G62, I get what you r saying and like you said, this is one of the boring ones. Eden, no offence taken. Just that jokes like this don't really go down well in these parts. Don't mean to upset anyone either.
PS. Love the banter here even tho I fall into the category of the silent readers. Shout out to the Eds. You guys r amazing.

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate, nice to meet you.}

11.) 12 Mar 2020 20:44:29
Seemed like a play on the Nigerian lottery scam rather than a stereotype on Nigerians. I never thought for a second someone was directing the comment towards all Nigerians. May be I’m glossing over this or were being super-sensitive but interesting that it could be taken that way and a nice diversity lesson for me. Welcome to the site!

12.) 12 Mar 2020 21:05:48
dELLYOsh mate please don't stay a silent reader the more the merrier mate, the world is going through a difficult time right now and one of our best weapons we have is our sense of humour, you ask my nephew brother cousin and uncle, he will tell you :-)

13.) 12 Mar 2020 21:21:57
More people to drown you out the better 62. 3 thumbs up

Echo the post but with a posh middle class Tory rose wine drinking accent.

14.) 12 Mar 2020 22:04:29
I couldn't agree more SY, your lucky mate you only have to put up with 4 or 5 times a day, I'm not stuck with me 24/ 7 but hey ho to each thier own, but why did I have to get paired up with me :-)

Can't pretend to understand the wine smoking jacket and the obsession with other people keeping their hedges in an orderly and seemly fashion but must admit I'm quite impressed at how Boris is handling the current situation, openly and honestly, he's come a long way from his phone nicking and fridge hiding days, I've no doubt normal service will be resumed far to soon but credit where it's due.

15.) 12 Mar 2020 22:22:00
Yes it came to mind because how the post was worded reminded me of the email scam and how it seemed too good to be true, it wasn't meant as a stereotype of Nigerians. But I can see how if you're nigerian having a scam associated with you would be annoying and make it not very funny, so I'm sorry, much love.

16.) 13 Mar 2020 06:13:54
Hey Eden, I appreciate your honesty. I'm Nigerian but an Arsenal fan thru and thru and I think that binds us more.
G62, your sense of humour is second to none on this site.
I don't post because a lot of posts r reflections of my tots as well. That's what I love about u guys. We can all speak our minds freely and any misunderstanding is handled maturely (like this one) .
It's a though time worldwide right now. Prayers for the boss and his family and anyone who has come in contact with him.

17.) 13 Mar 2020 08:10:12
Still join in dELLYOsh mate, even when we agree the posters the longer the threads the wider the opinions more the interning the debate and quite often some humour appears.
One of my favourite things about Arsenal football club is the diversity of our fan base, people from all over the world and all Walks of life where and we are almost gooners equally regardless of our location be it London Nigeria Australia or the North pole, Santa doesn't where red and white for no reason :-)
we even have an SY! What other club can say that :-)



13 Feb 2020 12:19:52
Ed without getting into the financials too much, I see that Chelsea have agreed a deal to buy Ziyech for £38m. This seems very cheap in today's football world. I know you say that there's a problem which is why no other team has really gone in for him but would you either be able to elaborate or at least explain why the deal price is quite low?


{Ed002's Note - Yes they have agreed to sign the player once the paperwork goes through - the clubs and player are all good with it. With the assistance of an ex-Chelsea player there is an assurance that the previous issues will not occur. As for the price, I am not sure why you think it is low - don't be comparing it to what Arsenal massively overpaid (by at least £40M) for Nicolas Pepe. Chelsea agreed a figure which reflects the market value of the player in line with the expectations of both clubs.}

1.) 13 Feb 2020 14:25:21
Thanks Ed, and I’m going to completely change the subject now. You see when you say arsenals structure is a joke, who’s accountable for that? The owners? Raul Sanehilli? Who’s fault is it?

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to such things.}

2.) 13 Feb 2020 14:36:16
How comes?

{Ed002's Note - It simply leads to abuse of people the supporters know nothing of.}

3.) 13 Feb 2020 18:45:41
Personally been happy with what I've seen with pepe. Just needs to work on his end product. Hopefully that comes soon.

4.) 13 Feb 2020 18:43:50
Ed you can help this club with your knowledge don’t you think? If the fans know the problem maybe we can play a part to change the system if possible.

{Ed002's Note - No, you will be like the Manchester United fans that think Woodward is picking transfer targets or the coin throwing West Ham fans.}

5.) 13 Feb 2020 23:23:22
Pretty sure that's a minority of fans doing things like that. If you even call them fans Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Ok, I guess it is Ok to throw coins at Trevor Brooking then.}

6.) 14 Feb 2020 10:37:41
Thanks Ed, I dunno I feel like you should give us a chance though. I can only speak for myself, and I know I won’t act aggressively nor stupidly if I knew what the actual problem was.



05 Feb 2020 18:00:20
Ed, I saw your previous post basically explaining arsenal will be bargaining in the summer if they aren't able to sell players. I wanted to ask, if we got back into the champions league either through the Europa or through top 4, will arsenal still be looking to bargain or does that change?


{Ed002's Note - Why would it change? You think the club would consider spending the Champions League money it doesn't have on players? You need to think that the club need to get back in to a position when it wan't being run as it has been the past couple of years.}

1.) 05 Feb 2020 21:37:11
Top 4 DG? If Chelsea were to get only 20 points from the remaining 39 available we'd still need to get 31 from our possible 39 and that's not even taking any of the other teams above us into consideration.
Just out of interest do you really think top 4 is still a credible viability mate?

{Ed047's Note - we're strictly mid table

2.) 05 Feb 2020 23:46:00
I think we will be 8th by end of season with Shef Utd above us as well as the obvious.

Sad state of affairs: draws aren’t going to help us or a porous defence.

big summer ahead - clear out and raise funds to rebuild our Arsenal.

3.) 06 Feb 2020 08:08:35
I can’t even see us qualifying for the Europa League. Top four is a fantasy. The remainder of the season provides Arteta an opportunity to work with the players, particularly those he intends retaining for the future.

I am sure he knows who he wants to keep and those he wants to move on. The summer will give him the opportunity to start forming the squad as he wishes, to condition the players physically and impose his tactics upon them.

The good thing is that the players appear fully behind him, we have some quality youngsters emerging and we are becoming difficult to beat.

4.) 06 Feb 2020 18:08:24
Don’t want Europa next season just focus on getting top 4 and rebuild 👍.

5.) 07 Feb 2020 13:27:37
Top 4 isn't realistic if we don't get into CL through the EL then I would rather not have European football next season. We dan concentrate on the league.

6.) 08 Feb 2020 12:54:00
Neck on the line I don’t think we will be below 5th.
