Gabriel Jesus deal agreed with city. Arsenal pressing on deals for Raphinha and Lisandro Martinez.

With Nuno Tavares to go out on loan. Bellerin getting interest from Athletico Madrid (that is a good one and bend Leno in discussions with Fulham)

The window is looking cute. I believe the departures last summer and also in January made it possible for us to pursue signings early as we know what we need and does not rely on departures before signings.

I hope we land Raphinha and Martinez. Tielemans looks certain to me to sign for us. We are not in a rush because he is ours to lose.



1.) 25 Jun 2022 17:02:27
Why do we need Martinez? If Gabriel stays, saliba and him are the stand out pair for me.

2.) 25 Jun 2022 17:42:36
He can play LB and DM as well.

3.) 25 Jun 2022 17:47:04
Where is all this money from surely we must sell for three ffp reason.

4.) 25 Jun 2022 22:04:37
To be honest, we need a back up left back. We also need another defender, ideally left playing center back.

We also need a defensive midfield cover. Lokonga did well but I consider him raw.

We do not have the money to recruit for all these positions one window. That is why Martinez makes a lot of sense.

However, Martinez is not coming in as a back up. He is a baller, and can easily challenge Gabriel, and tierney for starting spots.

That is healthy for a team that wants to succeed.

5.) 25 Jun 2022 22:39:04
Doesn't he play the same position as Saliba? If we sign him it seems like it will be dependent on selling.

6.) 25 Jun 2022 23:43:10
It is not dependent on selling. We are getting him to strengthen the left back position + provide cover for left center back.

Nuno Tavares is leaving on loan.

7.) 26 Jun 2022 14:54:16
Not sure you sign a player for the reported £43m as cover? If he comes it will be to play, which is great, but might mean other players in that position are sold. Ed has always said Saliba staying is not guaranteed and maybe he would be the one to go? Seeing as we have a policy of signing young players with future potential that would be crazy though, as he probably is top of that list.

8.) 26 Jun 2022 17:15:35
It doesn't sound like he wants to be at Arsenal Epping mate, he accepts he has to return and honour his contract but what's the point in letting him simply run down his contract then leave for free.

There is obviously bad feeling between him and the club because of whatever has gone on between them and sadly I think it would be best for all concerned to let leave and cash in while we have the chance.

Good player and it's a shame things have gone as they have since he joined us but no point in biting your nose off to spite your face.

9.) 26 Jun 2022 23:43:30
I do rather fear we are spending cash we don’t have G62, and therefore whether he has settled his differences with us or not, it may be we need to sell him to help balance the books anyway.



25 Jun 2021 19:31:52
David orstein: we are close to signing Ben White for £50m.

Christ Wheatley: we are also close to signing Lokonga.

I am super excited about these two incomings. They are solid solid signings for me.

Get Xhaka out and get us Bissouma or Sander Berge.

Get a number 10. Sell belerin nd Get replacement.

Get back up for tierney. And we are ready.

By the way, mavropanos is leaving. All the best to the lad.




17 Jan 2021 08:00:32
Ozil finally leaving. Thank for the 8years with us.

I can still remember clearly when we signed him, the hope he brought to our football club.

He took the number 11 shirt and in the 11th minute, gave a sumptuous assist to Giroud against Sunderland after a nice pass from kierran Gibbs. That was his first game for Arsenal. On a yellow outfit.

It is a shame to see you go like this, for the club, fans and for you as well.

The damage is done already. If I was Auba, Lacazette, Pepe, I would be devastated all along as to why my coach will keep such a player out with no back up.

But we move on. I wish you the very best in your new chapter.




18 Dec 2020 14:20:10
Rumours coming out that Arteta relationship with Willian and Luiz has soured.

And they are now pushing for Edu (kia man) to get him sacked.

I will take that with a pinch of salt judging by Edu's recent comment on the future of Arteta.

The media is clearly not in Arteta's favour anymore and I wonder how long he is going to last there.


1.) 22 Dec 2020 00:24:40
Gosh, how Willian could possibly have an issue with the man playing him every week despite his truly atrocious performances is beyond me. I'd have dropped him to the bench for Pepe, Nelson or Smith-Rowe months ago now.



11 Dec 2020 23:54:23
Judging by reports, We have lost Dominik Szoboszlai. He is to join RB leipzig for just €25m.

I would have loved him at Arsenal, very creative, with quality deliveries. He is also a free kick specialist with huge eye for goals.

What do we have left for January? Aouar? Beundia? I don't think we can pay their asking price. Fingers crossed.

We need to sort out creativity. Arteta Please!


1.) 12 Dec 2020 10:37:46
Ed002 told us this before that he will join Leipzig. Hi Ed, do you know who else arsenal might target in January?

{Ed002's Note - Omar Rekik (CB) will join and I think a loan is likely. Money remains are an issue so much depends on departures and how the club handle new contracts.}

2.) 12 Dec 2020 14:17:47
Thanks Ed. Glad to have you back!

3.) 12 Dec 2020 18:18:53
Nice to clear some dead wood and buy another beast of a cb that would be a nice Christmas and a playmaker to top it off.

4.) 12 Dec 2020 16:26:37
Ed just a quick one, I think lacazette has 18months left, do you expect him to leave?

{Ed002's Note - There is a push from one quarter to move Alexandre Lacazette on whiclst he has some value.}

It is funny how some fans don’t rate Nketiah but same fans rated Lacazette and even wished we extended Lacazette’ contract on the basis that he is a leader and provides support to the young players.

Nketiah fully deserves his contract and I am very glad he stayed.


1.) 20 Jun 2022 08:46:40
Hi Harrison the fact is Laca didn't despite his best efforts quite cut the mustard at top premier league level but Eddie might.

I'd rather give Eddie his chance than simply just go with what hasn't worked out for the last 6 or 7 years all over again, is Eddie good enough?

I really don't know but no matter if you spend 77 million on a new player or give a squad player his chance, it's a gamble either way.

{Ed014's Note - and if it doesn’t work out for him we now get a transfer fee rather than nothing.

We can then discuss whether it will be Balogun or Biereth who make it or not! ?

2.) 20 Jun 2022 09:17:44
I like Eddie, he comes across well, and he always puts in a whole hearted performance and works like a Trojan, something the fans always love. However, I see him like another Welbeck, in that he also did a lot of that, but then, when he gets a golden chance to win the game in the 85th minute, he misses it. It’s a harsh position, in that the other bits should be enough, but when your playing the striker role, it’s scoring goals that count. Lacca coundnt do it, and so has rightly been allowed to move on. Eddie showed signs that he is a goal scorer at the end of last season, when he got a run of games. So he deserves another chance, but I wouldn’t bet my house on him being golden boot next season, so best if we get that high end striker as well.

3.) 20 Jun 2022 10:00:01
Eddie sort of reminds me of a young Wrighty.

4.) 20 Jun 2022 10:53:09
Said it weeks ago. Eddies issue is his attitude and how he relates to the fans, but as Malaga says there’s definitely Wrighty comparisons as far as attributes at this stage of his career.
But as a footballing decision it makes perfect sense to resign and I’m glad we did. He’s homegrown and like Ed says we can now get a fee rather than losing him on a free if it doesn’t work out.
In my mind the player wants to play for the club and it’s crucial that the club keep players with Arsenal DNA to grow.
On a sidenote, fans should lay off this number thing. We didn’t retire no 14, it’s there to be worn. Best of luck to the guy for aspiring to do it justice. If he’s half the player we’ll be lucky to have him so give him a break.

5.) 20 Jun 2022 11:06:03
Agree with that Epping.

I also think he deserves a chance and maybe that run of games towards the end of the season gave the him the nudge he needed.

Do I think he will get the golden boot? No. Do I think he could get 15 goals as a number 2 to Jesus? Most certainly.

He seems to be working hard whilst on holiday and was doing sprints on the beach in Miami in his Arsenal gear ? maybe we will see the best of Eddie this season. I hope so!

6.) 20 Jun 2022 11:56:46
Excellent point about the resale value if things don't go well for Eddie Ed014 mate I hadn't even though of that.

I totally agree with you about the shirt thing Shambo, I didn't even know it was an issue for people, that's crazy. What about the shirt numbers of Wilson Sansom Adams Oleary Brady Armstrong Wright Charlie George and of course the absolute best player to not only wear an Arsenal shirt but grace the premier league with his presence, the ultimate appitame of class on grass himself Bergkamp.

Where would it end and why on earth is it even a thing for people, personally I'd like see the Henry statute replaced with an Eddie statute to help people come to terms with past being past and live in present ?????.

{Ed014's Note - haven’t both Walcott and Aubamayang had the number 14 shirt since Henry left.

Can’t believe people are making a fuss! ?‍♂️

7.) 20 Jun 2022 12:28:39
I know Ed014 mate, huge part of why we slipped so far behind other clubs is through trying to hang on to the past, great memories are a nice place to visit occasionally but an unhealthy place to live mate.

Kung-fu panda had it right when he said " yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mystery but today is a gift and that's why it's called the present " ???.

8.) 20 Jun 2022 12:29:05
Ah it’s a joke fellas. Dooming the guy before he’s has an actual run in the side.
Anyone hear that we’re alledgedly close to getting a Raphina deal done?

9.) 20 Jun 2022 12:59:20
Sorry Shambo but when it comes to football rumours and gossip I'm totally Manuel, " I know nothing " ????.

10.) 20 Jun 2022 13:42:41
Hi Ed did anyone make a fuss when you applied for your Ed number ? VTH.

{Ed014's Note - what and dice with death… no mate they didn’t ??

11.) 20 Jun 2022 14:38:44
Sussex, I can’t believe Trish gave him the job

You think he would of gone for someone with a bit of class

Like me lol.

{Ed001's Note - I regret it every day! Though not enough that I would consider you mal!}

12.) 20 Jun 2022 17:14:00
Can you imagine it, Mark the Ed? Now that would be funny and should happen on April 1st even year for 24 hours.

I can just imagine someone posting 'top of the morning to you Ed0000, Do you think Arsenal will go for Pep when he leaves City " and the reply being " Arsenal have a manager " ???????.

{Ed001's Note - the thought of a world where mal has power terrifies me!}

13.) 20 Jun 2022 19:06:25
Me too Ed001, not because he's a bad bloke, but it's what he could do without meaning to do that terrifies me most mate ???.

14.) 20 Jun 2022 21:50:50
Mal v Ed02? Fight fight fight! ? VTH.



01 May 2022 21:16:26
Great 3 points from the lads. I thought Saka , Martinelli and Odegaard all looked tired going forward. But all helped out the fullbacks and defended well

Eddie was the inspiration in today’s victory. Hahaha, Holdini gets his first EPL goal.

Now, who is still backing Lacazette? Last time, I wrote a piece of how bad he is. Eddie had four shots on target today.

Lacazette in his last 9 games, had 3 shots on targets. I love that Arteta does not even bring him on as substitute.

Up gunners


1.) 01 May 2022 21:46:02
He’s an arsenal player I’ll back them all have a great day.



30 Apr 2022 21:06:35
Granit Xhaka wins April POTM, this is the first time he has won the award since joining the club in 2016.

Big congratulations to him and also to Mikel Arteta who has made this possible as well. To think that Xhaka will get to this point after the incident with fans seemed impossible.

However, We must replace Xhaka in our starting eleven for next season if we do want to compete for titles. I am okay with him staying as a second choice midfielder.

I do hope his luck has turned, meaning that he will also qualify for the champions league with Arsenal for the first time


1.) 01 May 2022 09:42:05
Based on his form, if Roma come back for him we should cash in double quick. Don’t want him either in the first XI or on the bench next year, time for both to move on. Let’s get some cash to put towards someone better. For me the two CM positions are the most important in the team. Great teams in the history of the premiership have always been driven by solid CM partnerships, including us. We have one, in Partey, who looks to be finally justifying his signing. He also highlights the risk in signing from overseas, players who have to get used to both the change in team, and league. Therefore I would suggest for such a key position, his partner should be someone who already has premiership experience. That’s why I like Ward-Prowse or Bissouma. Both are already playing well in our league, and I think either would be a decent step up from Xhaka.

2.) 01 May 2022 10:16:04
Ward-Prowse would be an amazing signing. Also Neves would be a great option with plenty of PL experience and still only 25.

3.) 01 May 2022 12:03:12
Take either of those Ward-Prowse or Neves.

4.) 02 May 2022 11:16:13
4 different competitions next season. We will need Xhaka's experience, even if he doesn't start every big game.



24 Apr 2022 17:06:06
Craig Dawson gets straight red vs Chelsea. This means West ham will have no fit center back against us next Sunday.

That is looking already good.


1.) 24 Apr 2022 19:37:00
And they will have the 2nd leg of a Europa semi final a few days later, won’t get a better time to play them.

2.) 26 Apr 2022 06:56:07
Yes, it is the best time to play them. Moyes will definitely prioritise the europa league.



16 Apr 2022 18:41:40
Sometime ago, I expressed my disappointment in Lacazette, and pointed how he is not the right person for us, neither as a first team player nor as a squad player.

It has been four months counting since he score a goal from open play.

Many argued about his work rate, his assists and being a role model for the young guns. It is very funny to me.

It looks like he has fallen out with Arteta now, having not trained for the past 3 trainings or so, with the coach saying it is for some private reasons which he won’t comment on. Sounds familiar right? This is how it starts

While Christ Wheatley is reporting that it is due to sickness. Either way, I am happy that someone else will be playing the no 9 against Southampton.

In my honest opinion, LACAZETTE has not justified his place in our starting line for many games now


1.) 16 Apr 2022 21:55:20
He's got C.V. Harrison.

{Ed002's Note - Curriculum Vitae can be a terrible thing.}

2.) 17 Apr 2022 03:42:30
I for one am behind on this one ne player coming in has to respect what arteta says if not then they are out no matter who u are gives the team much better structure.

I totally agree with you @eppingGooner. Xhaka is alway a calamity waiting for the unexpected and most crucial time to burst.

Hopefully he will attract some interest with his recent performances.

My peferred midfielder is Declan rice but that won’t be possible. David Moyes said the other he would cost 100m.

Bissouma, a very exciting player too.

I also forgot to include Odegaard in the list of incomings. Thanks ed014 for appreciating the post.


{Ed014's Note - haha just shows how busy it’s been! and you’re welcome, it’s great to be positive about the team having had so many doubts.
