Talk of Odegaard being offered out to other PL clubs this Summer, let’s hope he’s that happy with us he stays.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal have no option to buy him.

Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Arsenal beat Real Sociedad to a loan in January but have no option to buy. Real Madrid are happy to include him on a lengthy list of players that they are open to selling or including in exchanges in the summer - and that may suit Seville who have a player that Real Madrid are showing an interest in. Ideally Real Madrid would like an auction for him but will seek €40M for a cash sale. Arsenal would consider him on a permanent deal but it depends on finances which are tight.}

If he has good options it's difficult to think why he would want to be at Arsenal next season.

Reasons staying would be game time he gets at Arsenal.

Reasons for not staying are it's highly likely we won't be playing European football next season plus there is nothing apart from wishful thinking to argue Arsenal will be any different next season under Arteta than they were last season or are this season under Arteta.

I don't know the lad and maybe there are reasons I'm not aware of why he would want to be at Arsenal next season but there certainly isn't any obvious reason to think he would.

Partey isn’t done yet - I’d be amazed if we were to get him.


1.) 14 Oct 2020 10:09:55
Are you not amazed?!?!



05 Oct 2020 10:38:57
Guendozy and Torriera gone then, does this mean a midfielder coming in?


{Ed002's Note - There is a chance. Arsenal enquired after Maxime Lopez (but were told he is heading elsewhere) and Morgan Sanson (but wanted a loan exchange with Guendouzi and/or Saliba) and Marseille would not consider that unless there was an obligation to buy and Thauvin was sold. Arsenal have asked again about Amadou Diawara but I am not sure that there is sufficient time to do anything. Later it may become clearer.}

Ed that’s great info to have at hand with things changing so quickly.
Greatly appreciated I hope you have the time to respond when available throughout the day and keep us informed. ✌️.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 13:21:39
Great insight. Thanks Ed. Still shambolic but I’d be happy with Diawara.

Everton v Spurs tonight - best outcome for us is a draw - we have Fulham and Everton at home next, two wins and it’s looking very different, Spuds have Southampton then M City .


1.) 16 Apr 2021 13:27:40
I think concentrate on ourselves, winning our last 7 games will give us 66pts and an excellent shot at top 7.

Fail to beat Fulham and it's irrelevant what anyone else does, if we can't do our bit we don't deserve anything more than we get from the season in my opinion.
Last night was a brilliant platform to build on so let's see what Mikel and his Arsenal team can do going forward from last night?

2.) 16 Apr 2021 21:08:51
I disagree mate, every season you can guarantee someone relies on someone else to get the benefits, it’s irrelevant if team A got into the top 4 because team B got food poisoning the fact is A got more points than B

Everyone needs everyone else to win lose or draw to benefit.

3.) 16 Apr 2021 21:57:19
You are right mate teams are always looking or hoping for other teams to do them favours.
I'm a great believer that everyone ends up where they deserve to be over a season.
Ultimately we've only got control over what we do ourselves and that's where we should always be looking into my opinion.

Long discussion on soccer Saturday about Arsenal - Mersin thinks MA’s job is safe regardless of the EL outcome . Most pundits think the club are going nowhere and have spent dreadfully . All words echoed on here.


1.) 10 Apr 2021 15:29:52
I'm pleased to hear Merson thinks Mikel is safe, happy days 🖒 I wounder who our new manager will be this summer 😀

I really liked Merson as a player but as a pundit he's definitely not the wisest in the land 😎.

2.) 10 Apr 2021 15:54:03
His comment was on the basis who would want to come and start a rebuild at a failing club.

3.) 10 Apr 2021 17:04:24
Maybe I'm biased mate but I think we are a brilliant opportunity for the right man who has the right combination of passion vision and ability, I realise it's a huge combination but we are far far from a lost cause and the right man is out there.

People will obviously point to the Edu interference putting people off joining us but with what we already there is already enough to challenge for top 4 ( Leicester squad isn't as good as ours ) and once a new manager achieves top credentials despite Edu he will be mote powerful than Edu as the club won't dare let him walk and risk the fans furry.

Arteta is complicit with Kia Edu and co because he knows that makes him useful despite his inability.

4.) 10 Apr 2021 23:03:01
We are definitely a brilliant opportunity for any manager with ambition. We frequently use the phrase in sport class is permanent form is temporary and that goes for our club. Just about 5 years ago we were the 5/ 6th biggest club on the earth based on revenue, and in football terms that’s like 5 minutes ago. I don’t look at Inter Milan and say they are fallen and will never recover, and it’s the same with us. Unfortunately I haven’t seen any evidence that our current manager is the one to turn our fortune around, but someone will, and it will be soon.

5.) 11 Apr 2021 10:47:22
epping gooner, Inter milan have ambition and are a bigger club than us internationally. Inter milan have ambition as evidenced by the signings they are making and the quality of coaching at the club.

We arsenal, have zero ambition and it stems from the owner; A disinterested owner with no knowledge of European football. The end result is catastrophic. I don't see us winning anything meaningful with silent stan at the helm.

6.) 11 Apr 2021 12:10:56
I just don't see what you see with Stan Punani mate.

He's invested a lot of money in players to try and make us better.

He may not have enough understanding or abilty to run a successful football club but to accuse him of having zero ambition isn't backed up by the facts.
Just because he doesn't attend games in person or give interviews making fantastic statements of intent that does not mean he doesn't care or want Arsenal to be brilliant again.

Stan delegates because he accepts his limited knowledge of football, he gave Arsene a free hand and in Arsenes own words Stan gave him everything he asked for and refused him nothing.

Stans crime is poor delegation not lack of ambition.

Dick Emery had an away win last night, funny 😄 if he win the EL this year.


1.) 09 Apr 2021 13:07:32
Good ebening for him.

2.) 09 Apr 2021 20:58:49
He's actually a good EL manager and got us to 1 out of 1 finals.
The problem for Emery at Arsenal was we want more than just EL football and EL league position finishes.

Arsene was a CL last 16 manager
Emery a EL champion
Arteta is a Brexit manager who wants as little to do with Europe as possible 😎.



05 Apr 2021 21:49:35
KT now stands at 485 days injured in 4 and a bit years not including what is about to come up which going on reports could be it for the season get the lad from Palace.


1.) 05 Apr 2021 22:22:28
To be fair even including the times he's not available he's still more consistent than Nacho Gibbs and Kol put together 🤗

Who ever we sign is going to have times accept only playing when Tierney isn't available as there is no way we could afford or attract better than Tierney himself.

2.) 05 Apr 2021 23:38:48
I know mate I’m making the point for us to be consistent we have to have good strength in depth, time and time again we say KT has been our best player then we need a quality replacement to keep the raids down the left side going .

Just watched G Neville talk about the front 6, he has a point.

3.) 06 Apr 2021 23:34:15
Eh? Best thing about Nacho was his consistency. A bit slow but you could set your watch to him.

4.) 07 Apr 2021 00:18:54
What did he say Ox?

5.) 07 Apr 2021 08:39:45
True Wire mate, Nacho was better than he was given credit for, he was so often left terrible exposed by those around him.

6.) 07 Apr 2021 23:26:34
SY, he gave examples of the lack of work rate and desire and he was spot on, let’s see what happens Thursday night, I bet we are more committed which might back up some people’s argument that we have given up on the PL.



05 Apr 2021 21:45:56
Will bring this up again KT, I know 62 doesn’t agree but the left back misses more than he plays we need a replacement for sure, I’m afraid this is something we have to deal with the guys game means he is always going to have spells injured.


1.) 05 Apr 2021 22:26:20
It's a fair comment mate, I was so Wrong about him last summer I've decided never to say a bad word about Tierney ever again 😎.

I should imagine the whole squad has watched the Liverpool defeat again and were probably just as embarrassed as the fans were disgusted- maybe it’s the shock treatment that’s needed, we shall see.

We are a different animal in Europe that’s obvious

If we get out act together a top 7 place is possible.
