Any truth behind the headlines regarding Emi Buendia? I haven't seen much of him, but he seems highly thought of. I doubt we have £40m available prior to getting rid of one or two for proper money, rather than wage displacement.


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what these "headlines" are. If it is "Buendia Not Joining Arsenal in January", then they are true.}

1.) 21 Jan 2021 11:50:05
Oh, okay then.



29 Nov 2019 09:56:39
Freddie ready to step in reports the Guardian. They have a thread on this currently, so I expect they know what Ornstein knows.




19 Oct 2017 14:02:05
It seems were are linked yet again with Benzema. One hopes its nonsense.


1.) 20 Oct 2017 07:01:20
Seriously and no jibe intended, but what top player is going to come to your lot with all the uncertainty at the moment? Wenger short contract, Ozil possibly going, Sanchez leaving.

At least if Wenger had gone at the end of last season the rebuild would have already started.

2.) 20 Oct 2017 08:50:04
Can’t argue with that mate. Too much uncertainty at the club. I’d even had taken arsene rebuilding at the start of the season than this situation we are in.

3.) 20 Oct 2017 14:00:56
Raver wannabe 😂😂😂.

4.) 22 Oct 2017 20:11:08
so tell me again Jelfy, which British teams have won at the bernabeu in the Champions League. 2009 ring a bell. and no that wasn't the European cup. and don't rely on talk sport fella or Oddbod.

5.) 23 Oct 2017 16:36:09
Benzema a top player?



03 Jun 2016 20:36:16
It seems we have triggered Jamie Vardy's release clause. A steal at £20m. I wonder if Wenger really is going to open the chequebook. Vardy and Morata would be a statement of intent, no?


1.) 03 Jun 2016 20:44:33
Well, that what sky sports is saying but I still want morata too. Not too sure if vardy suits our game plan, saying that vardy still will be a great addition to any team.

2.) 03 Jun 2016 20:55:21
The release cluases aren't applicable in the premier league.

{Ed002's Note - Just to be clear - this is another misunderstanding about "clauses". I am not interested about going in to detail but you need to step back from worrying about "clauses" and "finances". I will say that there is interest in Vardy from Arsenal.}

3.) 03 Jun 2016 21:08:38
Thanks for coming back ed.

4.) 03 Jun 2016 21:20:26
Appreciate that Ed002.

5.) 03 Jun 2016 21:48:47
Thanks ed002.

6.) 03 Jun 2016 22:16:34
Welcome back Ed02

Not sure I want Vardy but if we sell Gibbs and Ox - we need some home grown talent.

7.) 03 Jun 2016 22:26:49
Lets hope this doesn't drag on all through the summer and is sorted quickly. No 20 mil and a pound offers. If he's our target then get him.

8.) 04 Jun 2016 11:12:05
Sounds positive from Stevie 😁.

9.) 04 Jun 2016 00:32:54
I am personally cautious about the Vardy interest. I'm not sure how he'd do in our system. Would much rather see us move for Lukaku.



29 Jul 2014 13:51:21
Arsenal will sign either Khedira, Pogba or Schneiderlin within a week according to some agent chappy I met in Clapham today. Could be nonsense, but he seemed fairly certain. He also mentioned potential bids for Carvalho and Costa. Arsenal have lots of fingers in lots of pies he reckons!


1.) No offence but sounds like he just said every name he could think of if there is enough s**t something has to stick

2.) How did you happen to bump into an agent and discuss transfers?

27 Jan 2021 09:09:51
Dare I imagine that we have turned a corner? Or, at least started to move on the right track.? I am hoping that Ødegaard turns out to be an inspired move.


1.) 27 Jan 2021 09:30:45
Let’s hope so, especially if ESR is injured as well.

2.) 27 Jan 2021 09:34:01
16 points from 18 mate, we can't be displeased with that! However, it's what we do against Utd and Wolves that will show whether we have made real progress or not. Uninspiring performances and losses to both of them and we'll be sat here saying the complete opposite.

3.) 27 Jan 2021 12:45:35
I think, we will not have any uninspiring performances in the next half, not sure what happened to us during the two months period but that should be the worst possible we could play. I admit I was anxious and wanted a change in the dug out but we have really turned a corner and we can only look upwards. We have got most of the away fixtures to top 6 out of the way which is also a positive. Wherever we finish let's hope that the spuds finish below us!

4.) 27 Jan 2021 13:36:50
I don't know about Bellerin being captain Lacazette would be my captain unless he's shy in the dressing room and else where. I know most think of KT but he's still young have time to wear the armband.

Pepe energy, pressing and running back was impressive last night which compliments the work Soares was putting in. Let's hope he's getting really hungry to play has he won't be seen on the right. PEA can smash and grab some goals but he doesn't put in such a shift and is one dimensional most of the time being force out left where he's less effective.

Honestly I think MA has been a bit luck with these things falling in to place for him.

5.) 27 Jan 2021 14:16:30
Come on yard, how can you say he’s been lucky

It’s up to him to pick the team and set up the formation

I think you need to give Arteta a bit of credit.

6.) 27 Jan 2021 14:59:04
I don’t know what MA has to do to get some credit he clearly has a great understanding of the modern game and has got players doing exactly what is asked by him and playing attractive football - give him some credit.

7.) 27 Jan 2021 16:29:18
We have 8 tough games in 28 days starting Saturday,
Home to Man U
Away at Wolves
Away at Villa
Home to Leeds
Away at Benfica
Home to City
Home to Benfica
Away at Leicester

This will test what we have.

8.) 27 Jan 2021 17:32:55
Malaga / 337 don’t get me wrong check my record on here in reference to MA. I pleaded his case before he gets the job and have not criticised him either. Throughout the seven game winless run I never fault him really. People, players, professional we all get some luck or rub of the green so to speak. Reading back it sounds as if I’m being critical but trust me I’m not.

To be more specific playing and in my opinion not criticism
Saka right is because Pepe was failing.
Playing ESR and Martinelli was because PEA and Willian being out at Chelsea.
Playing Pepe left last night was because of PEA absence.
Playing Soares at LB is because KT is out and AMN is ineffective.

To me this is now our best setup with the what we’ve got.

Even when we were languishing in 15th didn’t call fir his head or even thought he would get axed.

9.) 27 Jan 2021 18:16:55
Yard, it’s just expected more posts saying well done boss

Where is sy4, he’s quick enough on here when things are not going well.

10.) 27 Jan 2021 18:17:59
That’s the problem with text yardy lol it gets misinterpreted

You have to remember a coach can’t teach a cat to bark but if you show it enough it’ll try and what I saw last night was players which have looked out of place actually buying in to what MA is coaching them to do, he talks about this in interviews and he has a plan for every game, what they did last night was took what Southampton did to us on Saturday and reversed it back on them

I just wish someone could teach David luiz to defend 🤣.

11.) 27 Jan 2021 18:40:29
Mal 😂 SY4 Come out come out wherever you are 👀.

12.) 27 Jan 2021 19:59:43
You're right Malaga more positivity is definitely welcome, especially from me. But I try not to get too carried away when we win couple games or make a big signing. I'm hungry for more we've got to get back on top winning the league and CL, but importantly to get back to playing beautiful football- it's an art and should always be in our DNA.

13.) 27 Jan 2021 20:05:38
337, I just wish Luiz would go actually :)

Let's have Mari injury free he seems like a cool head with high level experience.



05 Jan 2021 12:16:29
Whoever we sign, if we sign anyone, the sooner the better would be a better approach than our usual last-minute acquisitions.


1.) 05 Jan 2021 14:24:58
Players need to leave first as publicly documented.

2.) 05 Jan 2021 16:21:30
Oh, thanks for that. My comment was not ignorant of that fact. Clubs can be proactive in getting rid of players, as has been publicly documented.



05 Jan 2021 12:14:14
Erikson cropping up again in a few news reports this morning. Anyone have thoughts about him. A quality player in my view, although I suspect a few others would be interested, esp Poch at PSG.


1.) 05 Jan 2021 12:19:00
1st opinion lazy
2nd opinion very lazy
3rd opinion ex spud
No thanks.

2.) 05 Jan 2021 13:26:43
337 - I would care if he’s a spud. They’ve benefited from Kane, Bentley etc while we’ve had Sol, Young, Jennings etc

For me - attitude, quality and age are key. I’m guessing he doesn’t tick those boxes.

{Ed047's Note - really don’t want Erikson

3.) 05 Jan 2021 14:10:08
Ed - can you change the above post to “ wouldn’t “ lol.

{Ed047's Note - haha no sorry I can’t 🤷‍♂️🤣

4.) 05 Jan 2021 14:14:26
Agreed Ed, I don’t want him for footballing reasons and got to think we can get a better long term creative option.

{Ed047's Note - exactly my thoughts mate

5.) 05 Jan 2021 15:50:20
Ed047, why can't you change SYs posts mate? You don't seem to have any problems changing 737s posts, allegedly 😂😆😀.

{Ed047's Note - wow, now the cats out the bag!😱🤣

6.) 05 Jan 2021 16:24:03
I agree. However, he has never struck me as very lazy, or even just a bit lazy. PLayed for Tottenham? Plenty of precedents there methinks.

7.) 05 Jan 2021 16:26:14
Gonna get you a big wooden spoon G69, told you he only changes my posts to make me look stupid he’s now realised I don’t need help.

{Ed047's Note - I so wanted to change spoon to leg! 🤣🤣

8.) 05 Jan 2021 17:13:07
Changing spoon to head rather than leg might be tad more accurate in my case Ed047 mate :-) .

{Ed047's Note - 🤣🤣 never thought of that mate!

9.) 05 Jan 2021 21:22:19
Your too kind Ed047 mate:-)

{Ed047's Note - why thank you 62, I do my best 😁



13 Dec 2020 18:47:11
The lineup looks especially unambitious. I appreciate we have had a dire run of fortune, but we are playing Burnley for goodness sake. Maybe I'm just a wee bit fed up.


{Ed0666's Note - you should try watching the Liverpool performance against Fulham if you wanna be fed up mate.

1.) 13 Dec 2020 18:55:34
Haha. I did. Not great, and lucky to get a point.

2.) 13 Dec 2020 20:55:33
Ed0666, I'd be buzzing if we played Liverpool played today. Look at the state of what we have produced tonight. Curtis Jones is 🔥 as well.

{Ed0666's Note - I appreciate you’re positivity mate but we were utter tripe today and only started playing late in the second half. We should have lost today but ironically could have won. I hope Arsenal come good soon Glenn as it’s a fabled club but you just have to get rid if Mikel.



19 Dec 2019 12:29:06
If it's true that with a squad that needs an experienced hand, both in managing what we have and planning for the future, ignoring Ancelotti in favour of Arteta, does not strike me as the optimal outcome. I hope my instincts are utterly wrong, but at the moment I'm feeling a little bit underwhelmed.

Of course, I recall Arteta being a shoe in once before.


1.) 19 Dec 2019 12:55:00
The exit polls are definitely suggesting an Artetta landslide Urban mate:-)
it's everywhere even Pep is reluctantly talking about it.
This is definitely not a usual suspects fantasy story this time.

2.) 19 Dec 2019 13:48:48
Well. if he is ours, he is ours, and we will give him 100%. Let's hope that the Guardiola magic has rubbed off on our boy. :)

3.) 19 Dec 2019 14:40:58
There was never any danger of MA turning down the opportunity once he was approached he'd even probably taken a cut in salary but with a caveat on performance and points blah blah blah

He’s agreed terms it’s just the wrangling on compo between the 2 clubs to get out of the way

Now to see who sits along side him on the bench.

{Ed047's Note - that’s the game changer for me Banbury, if he gets the right people it could be a great move.

4.) 19 Dec 2019 14:46:00
Apparently Arsenal have today contacted City to ask permission to speak to Arteta :-)
Strictly, Sunday league people running a Premier League football club, so completely out of their depth on all levels.

5.) 19 Dec 2019 14:54:21
I hope he does well I can't wait to see what he can do for us.

6.) 19 Dec 2019 19:59:22
I'm actually looking forward to arteta's appointment. And as ed47 said if we get the right people sitting next to him I think we might just turn our season around.

7.) 19 Dec 2019 20:49:07
The hope is he's learned loads from Pep and has the ability to replicate it
The fear is he has all his makes ahead of him and absolutely none behind him to fall back on so he will need to learn and lean quickly.

I am truly baffled by the interest in Ben White. I am told that Arteta is worried about Saliba's lack of experience in the EPL. If that is so he could have played him in gently or loaned him to an EPL side rather than packing him off to France. Either way, Saliba's figures do not suggest we need to spend £40m+ on a CB.

Quality players to go to CM, LB cover, RB, and possibly a striker if Laca/ Nketiah go. It's simple, but what do I know?

Neves is a great player and would provide precisely the type of partner for Partey that Arteta seeks. However, as Ed002 rightly implies, Wolves are no longer minnows that can be pushed over in the transfer market, they have money and ambition.

I think Arsenal may find it hard to align their ambitions with With their typical parsimonious approach to securing players. The football economy has changed markedly and Arsenal are no the player we once were. Whether that changes with the Ek situation remains to be seen.

Buendia has signed for Aston Villa. Is this another missed opportunity or a justified refusal to pay over the odds for a player?

In my view, we have missed out. As for Aouar, we messed about so much last season that I suspect we have missed the boat on that one too.

Fair enough, but we don't really want to be bedding in seven or eight first-choice players in one go. By all means, clear out those that offer little, or fill up the squad with little in the way of prospect or promise, but Xhaka is a useful player who can step in when necessary and is versatile. There are many more heading up the queue before you get to Xhaka.

Do bear in mind as well, that our lack of European football makes us somewhat less attractive, so if you are thinking of recruiting 5-8 world-class players with only a promise of success in the near future, think again.

The job Mikel has is a long-term one, much bigger one or even two transfer windows will fix.

Given we are not exactly blessed with an army of outstanding players, I would consider that assessment of AMN a little harsh. He has rarely been played in his preferred position, where he has arguably deserved a punt.


{Ed047's Note - where would you see him in a midfield 3 UC?

Neves or Bissouma/ Van Beek. Don't get the White interest.

I can't recall a time when England were favourites for a Euro or World Cup. Having said that, this is the strongest squad I can recall for a while. Equally, it's the first time that we have not been dependent on one stand out player (be it Beckham, Rooney, etc) to deliver the goods.

Maguire may not play, but it would not be a substantial loss.

I think it may have been more to do with our unwillingness to pay the asking price. If we had, he would have uttered a similar platitude about us. Sadly, your assessment of our limited ambition may well be right - at least that's the way it currently looks.

Keep him, there are plenty higher up the transfer out queue than him.
