I just found out that Martinelli had trials at Barcelona and Man utd. I wonder what Arsenal saw that they didn't.


{Ed014's Note - well for one Man United only buy crap so that was their excuse! ?

I'm having some sympathy for him, because you should really be sharpen his skills playing central. We've lost Tierney crosses in to the box since he came into the team.



09 Jan 2022 10:53:04
Vlahovic rumours seem to be picking up pace. Been reading that it could be a matter of days until there's an announcement. Wishful thinking?


1.) 09 Jan 2022 18:08:34
Reports are saying they are signing another striker so that’s 2 in a week surely he’s going somewhere hopefully us.



07 Jan 2022 16:31:28
Just read Bissouma is a target for Villa. If there is one player i would hate to miss out on, its him. Does anyone think the Villa talk is going to lead somewhere?


{Ed014's Note - I guess it depends where you read it as to whether there is even an ounce of truth in it.

1.) 07 Jan 2022 18:54:41
It would be frustrating if Villa signed him rather than us signing him.

{Ed014's Note - it would mate, they could have that lad from Norwich and Coutinho but I’d really like Bissouma just don’t actually see us as being interested in him.

2.) 07 Jan 2022 18:54:47
He's got "legal" issues so I don't think we'll be looking at him anytime soon.

3.) 07 Jan 2022 21:00:08
Mentioned the name Bissouma and Ed14 comes alive ?.

{Ed014's Note - ?? you picking on me!

4.) 07 Jan 2022 21:08:38
I read his case will be heard late January .

5.) 08 Jan 2022 12:55:21
Lots of teams will be looking for a CM in the summer. Man Utd, Man City and even Chelsea all have ageing CM, s who they need to replace.

Therefore I can only assume Bissouma will have many suitors with bigger pockets than us, although maybe those other big boys will be competing for Declan Rice, so we might still have a chance, should we be interested.

I am 100% with Ed, I just can’t understand why our club can’t see that he will take us to the next level. We should have handed Brighton the 50 mil for him over White all day long and twice on Sunday.

I can only think that this outside issue is making him untouchable currently?



10 Dec 2021 12:49:02
Martial wants to leave UTD in January. Anyone else think he would be a good signing for us? Pace, power and a good finisher.


1.) 10 Dec 2021 19:06:36
Not a fan, don't see him as an upgrade.

2.) 10 Dec 2021 19:36:40
No thank you.

{Ed014's Note - the last thing we need is deadwood like Martial, bone idle disinterested waster!

3.) 10 Dec 2021 20:48:41
Don't buy anyone and wait for the next manager, rather than let him inherit even more players who may not fit in with his plans.

Let Artetas successor chose.



07 Dec 2021 11:44:12
I was a huge believer in Arteta but this season its faded. I don't see improvements. Can you imagine if Arsenal didn't have Smith-Rowe or Saka in their squad. Would there really be anything to talk about? If they want a building project then The Brighton Manager would be perfect. Obviously he won't be for everyone, i accept that. There is no one else out there who i think would stick around long enough to make it work. The bigger issue for me is and will remain though, the Upstairs of the club. There will be no upturn in our fortunes until that bunch have gone. Not here to cause a debate, just letting off some steam. We all had a good at Wenger and towards the end, rightly so, but it can't be a coincidence that things went down hill once Kroenke showed up.


1.) 07 Dec 2021 12:52:14
McCain I don’t like kroenke either but he has backs Wenger, Emery and arteta in the transfer market and all 3 have failed miserably.

2.) 07 Dec 2021 14:52:39
100% Mark, I don't like them either but they have backed transfers like never before in the clubs history.

The Kronkees would take our club away tomorrow if they could but just because we don't trust them an inch doesn't change the facts.

3.) 07 Dec 2021 19:08:29
The owners have thrown money into the squad that can’t be argued, surely they can’t keep accepting these results.

4.) 07 Dec 2021 19:55:29
Try naming our best 11 and worst 11 signings over the last 10 years?
Be warned both lists will take some time to complete.

One deciding who you can possibly include and the other who you can possibly leave out ????.

5.) 07 Dec 2021 21:34:11
No one can argue that the Kronkes haven’t backed the club with money, but when you see the Leeds owner at the weekend, you see passion for the team, even from a billionaire.

You then wonder what Stan thought about our result last night, and then you realise he probably didn’t even watch it. That for me is the trouble with the Kronkees. We need owners that turn up, have visible passion and desire for the club, but ultimately with their presence, make it known to both the manager and players that they expect results.

Instead they have constantly employed the wrong people to run their investment. I agree with Oxford, in that even if they don’t really follow results, they must surely start questioning the outlay on players and seek responsibility from someone at the club.

Whether that’s from the manager or the board or everyone, but I find it strange that billionaires don’t seem to be protecting their investment, which as we know, is something billionaires do very well.

{Ed014's Note - some of the things these mega rich owners do is mind boggling, makes you wonder how they amassed their fortunes in the first place.

Backed **.

Didn't even hear rumours of this transfer happening. Kinda gives me hope of incomings now. As for Chambers, i am glad he's gone. Never really did much and it's another one of the wage bill.

Ive just read that they aren't able to register any permanent transfers. Meaning Saliba and Guendouzi will return to arsenal at the end of the season. Wouldn't mind seeing either of them back to be honest. Not slating what Ed002 is saying but just repeating what I've just read.


{Ed002's Note - If any transfers are pre-agreed they can go ahead - try searching on Kovacic. Do Arsenal want back players who have zero interest in playing for the club?}

My bet is the guy has slept with Mikels wife or something.


{Ed014's Note - what ever Arteta’s lame excuse I’m not having it, it’s pathetic, Arteta’s is pathetic!

Take it and replace him with who? I swear spoke people think its football manager or something. What world class striker is willing to join Arsenal? Surely you're not banking on Nketiah filling that gap? Lacazette? Neither can get the goals Aubameyang has done.

If they are really unhappy at Arsenal they won't mind taking a huge pay drop to make sure the negotiations run smoothly. As long as the club received a fair offer then they should all be shipped off. Aubameyang is clearly on the decline so now is the best time to get rid of him. Hopefully a fair few others follow him out the door too.

Lack of goals? Since Auba was left out of the team, we have played well, won games and scored goals. I don't get what's changed? The players we got rid of weren't playing.


{Ed014's Note - me neither, a little to much negativity going on.

Why would this car be parked in the street though? Surely they have a staff car park within the stadium? This whole thing is crazy.

I still expect a couple of surprises. No one heard about the Chambers move until it was done. Just because you aren't reading about things doesn't mean they aren't working on them.

He will 100% be an Arsenal player by the end of January.
