Evening Eds,
Has anything changed regarding Matviyenko? Reports are now claiming that a loan deal has been agreed? I imagine this has only come about due to breakdown in the Mari transfer.
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - It will be one or the other but Flamenco are miffed with Arsenal. Matviyenko is available and his agent has been pushing for a move. He has had half a good season else he has been a frinbge player.}


1.) 29 Jan 2020 10:27:43
Cheers Ed. Seems like we have agreed a deal with Flamengo now anyway so I guess any interest in Matviyenko will be dropped for now. It's frustrating that we keep angering other clubs though. Not good at all for the clubs reputation which is slowly being tarnished in the transfer market.

Latest tweet from Ornstein:
"Arsenal agree deal to sign 26y Spaniard Pablo Mari on loan + option to buy. Fulfils Arteta's request for a left footed CB. AFC could make 1 more loan signing before the deadline.
Fingers crossed!

Sounds like an intelligent signing. Arteta knows the player from his City days. He is tall, left sided and was with City in England. A great deal at a sensible price. Hope we now get Cedric Soares.


2.) 29 Jan 2020 11:12:46
It sure does Robbie mate. Although Mari did state that he never met Guardiola or any of the first team in the 3 years that he was technically a City player. Not keen on Soares myself. We are ok at RB for the remainder of the season with Bellerin and MN as cover. Defensively we haven't actually been to bad under Arteta it's going forward at the mo which is the problem! We can't create and when we do, we tend to make the wrong decision and ruin the chance!

Morning Eds,
Reports surfacing this morning that Arsenal are trying to seal a loan deal for James Rodriguez before Friday. Are there any truths in the interest as far as you're aware?
Thank you.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Real Madrid being open to loaning the player outr - they want to sell him or use him in an exchange - and certainly they are talking with another club about him.}


 

 

25 Jan 2020 12:49:07
Mari to Arsenal confirmed subject to medical. I've just retweeted a video of him walking through Heathrow with Edu. Not one we saw coming but fingers crossed he's the answer to a strong partnership with Saliba. Loan with option to buy 👍🏻.

Glenn1308

1.) 26 Jan 2020 08:33:14
I like the fact he is tall, at a good age for a CB and Arteta knows him. Next season it will give us a good combination of CB’s - experience in Luiz and Mari with promising young CB’s Holding and Saliba. We have 4 decent full backs, so defensively we look in good shape next season. We have 2 decent keepers. I think we need an additional DM, creative midfield player and a wide attacking player. The biggest concern is the contracts of Aubemeyang and Lacazette.

{Ed047's Note - I’ve really liked Aubameyang since Arteta arrived, he’s played as captain and led by example for me, considerably upping his work rate.

I’d like to keep both to be honest. City and Liverpool have impressive front 3’s and I like that we have Auba, Laca and Pepe especially if Arteta can get them performing at the top of their game together.

I didn’t realise what a big guy Edu was and Marí was slightly bigger again.


2.) 26 Jan 2020 08:55:34
It would be awful to see Auba and Laca leave but hey, if we can get some decent money for the both of them which we can invest in the squad then so be it. It's a new era with new players and Arteta can really be a full front of this! Right behind the decisions made so long as they keep buying players to fit the mould 👍🏻.

{Ed047's Note - my one concern is Auba knows where the back of the net is and those guys aren’t easy to find.

It’s like we sold RVP and never replaced him. Just a concern for me Glenn but like you I’m behind Arteta.


3.) 26 Jan 2020 09:34:41
Fully agree Ed. I would love to keep our forwards. The problem is whether they want to stay and try ge talk of Lemar coming concerns me, as I doubt we will shell out £40m+ without a substantial sale.

Mind you Lemar would be a terrific signing, as we would have pace on both wings. We could also have Aubameyang, Lacazette, Martinelli and Nketiah!

I would love to see us sign Thomas Party and a creative midfielder, possibly Grealish, to replace Ozil and Ceballos.

{Ed047's Note - I don’t know about the links to Lemar, is it just lazy journalism as he’s allegedly available and we were once interested. He’s not been the same player in Spain as he was in France.

Not saying he wouldn’t be great for us but there would have to be a sale or sales for him to come.

Definitely not a Grealish fan though, flatters to deceive for me and very lazy. Would be a step backwards.


4.) 26 Jan 2020 09:55:21
Completely agree Ed but there are players out there, we just need to convince them to join!

Players like Timo Werner for example and if we sell both Auba and Laca then players like that may be a real possibility 🤷🏻‍♂️ then again we already have Martinelli who knows where the goal is but like Arteta said, we need to protect him!

A big CM is 100% needed, a Kondogbia like player will certainly provide that stability on the middle of the pitch.

{Ed047's Note - again my concern is whilst we’re trying, initially to get back in the Champions League, that maybe our attractiveness as a club is not quite all it should be.

So using the likes of Auba and Laca now, whilst bringing on Martinelli and Nketiah, would make more sense until we can get the likes of Werner or the two youngsters turn into ready made replacements.

The midfield does cause concern but has been almost unrecognisable from under Emery to under Arteta and my biggest concerns remains Ozil and Xhaka although both have been way better I’d like to see more from them before I’m convinced they’re going to be good enough going forward.

I feel like I’m being greedy now! 🤣


5.) 26 Jan 2020 21:06:04
Any truth in the Rodriguez rumours ed.

{Ed002's Note - Which Rodriguez?}


6.) 27 Jan 2020 08:53:35
The lad fron Real Madrid James I think he’s called.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any plans to move to Arsenal. He is however available for sale or exchange.}


 

 

15 Jan 2020 08:50:07
Morning Eds,
Another day, another rumour.
Apparently we have enquired about the availability of Franck Kessie from AC Milan. Is he someone that Arsenal can see being brought in this month if the right deal can be found?
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - Wenger was keen on Kessie but there are already talks underway with another side. He is certainly available and numerous clubs have enquired after a price for him.}


1.) 15 Jan 2020 12:15:36
Brilliant, thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - He could end up in the other changing room at the San Siro.}


2.) 15 Jan 2020 14:58:52
Interesting, they're building themselves a nice little squad. So long as they can hang on to several players that will be key! Eriksen will be a good signing too imo.

Morning Ed's,
Appreciate this might be a random name to throw out there but is Geoffrey Kondogbia being considered as a transfer target for Arsenal? He's another player that I wouldn't like to see a rival club sign in the summer.
Many thanks.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - This is no more than a random player you like - Arsenal has no interest.}


1.) 21 Feb 2020 10:41:53
I like randoms
and on Sunday I hope we ' snow flake Evertons teapot :-)


2.) 21 Feb 2020 11:35:38
I do like him yeah. I wouldn't know if we have any interest unless I ask. Thank you.


3.) 22 Feb 2020 22:56:59
I have been a massive fan of his for quite a while Glen. He is exactly the player we need, offering protection to the back 4 and a spine down the middle. He is a beast of a player.


 

 

20 Jan 2020 21:00:09
Hello Eds,
Ornstein reported that Arsenal are looking at 3 or 4 loan, free or low fee deals in this window. Do you know who the others are besides Kurzawa? I appreciate they'll have multiple options and that they won't all be completed but an insight to who they are would be great!
Thank you.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - I gave you a list.}


1.) 20 Jan 2020 22:10:21
Apologies, I thought they were all for players who were way out of our scope in January. I can't find the list either. No worries.

Hello Eds,
The BBC had a piece on the Ozil situation last night and stated that there could be financial consequences to the Premier League because of his actions. This could come from a drop in revenue from TV rights etc but what consequences could he face himself? I appreciate Arsenal distanced themselves from it but surely the must be some repercussions because he represents Arsenal and the Premier League? Is there anything outlined in player contacts around social media etc that Ozil may have crossed? Interested to hear your views on it.
Thank you.

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - It is not a contract issue but relates to the policy of the club. Most clubs have a policy regarding use of social media, what players say in interviews etc.. General contracts will refer to players being expected to follow club poicies etc.. In the bigger scheme it is unlikely to have a longer term impact on television rights or anything like that.}


1.) 17 Dec 2019 10:01:33
It's only because of the financial implications that anyone has a problem with what Mesut said, if it was North Korea doing what China is doing the whole world would be condemning them for their actions quite openly and freely.


2.) 17 Dec 2019 11:28:03
Thanks Ed, much appreciated.
I totally agree Gunner. You have to be careful what you say though when your'e in his position. The influence of celebs/ sportsman etc is massive on social media so he can't just spout what he wants when he wants unless he's happy to take the backlash.


3.) 17 Dec 2019 15:30:04
Absolutely agree Glen if you decide to speak out then you have to know that there is a very highly likely there will be personal consequences for you as an individual, but if your in Mesuts postion and say nothing I think there are consequences for that inactiom too because what good is all the money in the world to you if you can't face yourself in the mirror each day.

Pochettino: "Mikel Arteta has the capacity to be one of the greatest coaches in football"

Wenger: "For Arteta, does he have all the qualities to do the job? Yes"

Pep: "I said after a few months together he would be a manager. He is already a manager - he behaves like a manager"

I blimmin hope so 🤷🏻‍♂️.

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.

Glenn1308

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