Looks like Edu could be on his way out of the club and Overmaars could replace him at last.

337

1.) 25 Aug 2021 05:12:09
Completely fabricated story from the gutter press I reckon, but it wouldn't be terrible. Edu has done fairly well this window with building a young core but the Willian deal and our inability to sell players for a reasonable sum hangs over the place like a bad smell.


 

 

24 Jan 2021 17:48:51
Odegaard deal confirmed on loan until the end of the season 😜.

337

1.) 25 Jan 2021 06:22:28
Not a bad move, need some back-up/ competition for ESR. He cannot be expected to play every game. Will probably take games from Willian which is no bad thing.
Loan move was only reasonable option in summer.

On top of loan of Mat Ryan and outgoings, not a bad window at all.


2.) 25 Jan 2021 17:00:17
Ed, curious why we didn't include an option to buy?

{Ed002's Note - It is not up to Arsenal to do that.}


3.) 25 Jan 2021 21:45:25
Read every where that Real will talk in the summer regarding Ødegaard and Ceballos with Arsenal.


 

 

22 Jan 2021 11:30:35
Matt Ryan has signed on loan until the end of the season from Brighton as GK cover, never heard of him tbh maybe the Ed’s can advise? Sounds like he has experience.

337

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}


1.) 22 Jan 2021 12:12:28
Yet you have heard of Odegaard and that signing makes perfect sense? Matt Ryan has been solid for Brighton and is a great loan signing for us. He is a shotstopper and very comfortable with the ball at his feet. I'm actually quite impressed that we made a sensible signing for once.


2.) 22 Jan 2021 13:13:57
Lot`s of Brighton fans down here my Son included are annoyed he`s not playing in the first team let alone being third choice. Great back up for Leno - seen him live a few time at Amex and never got the jitters. Only thing is he is quite short at 6 feet for a keeper. Good choice me thinks COYG.


3.) 22 Jan 2021 14:10:40
Try telling Peter shilton 6ft is short lol, he’ll still kick your backside at 71 🤣.


4.) 22 Jan 2021 16:07:55
We`ll get him to hang upside down as Shilton used to. What a keeper especially at Forest not so good v Poland COYG.


5.) 22 Jan 2021 19:57:22
Always thought Ospina looked short at just over 6ft.


 

 

20 Jan 2021 20:11:17
So odegaard rumours are hotting up, didn’t see that coming
Not seen much of him maybe the Ed’s could enlighten us about him?

337

{Ed002's Note - Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) Real Sociedad are keen on taking him on loan and have spoken with Real Madrid. His agent has said that he has had enquiries from two English sides. Why would Arsenal want another RW?}


1.) 20 Jan 2021 21:33:50
Is this the kid we were trying to sign b4 he went to Madrid.

{Ed002's Note - A number of clubs were very keen - in England Liverpool and Arsenal were keen.}


2.) 20 Jan 2021 21:34:29
Because the ones we have a not performing?


3.) 20 Jan 2021 22:02:42
Ed I haven’t seen him play but I thought he was originally a CAM? Similar to brandt in that they can both play wing as well? Correct me if I’m wrong though because I dunno.

{Ed002's Note - He is primarily a RW who can play as an AM.}


4.) 20 Jan 2021 22:09:19
Play Saka left, Odegaard right and ESR in middle with PEA up front or Martinelli or Laca.


5.) 21 Jan 2021 09:31:10
Players can change positions and it happens all the time. He doesn't have the pace to play on the wing especially in the Premier League. He has played a lot more of his football recently in the central role and at 22, he can definitely make that his preferred position.

Would I like him to do that at Arsenal though? I think it's a silly mistake if we sign he personally but I'm happy to eat my words. If we are going to push out ESR then Brandt is the one to do that IMO.


6.) 21 Jan 2021 12:11:46
Brandt is awful and I think that would be a mistake I think the sign this guy on loan and go all out for auora in the summer.

Cmon you lot, there were a good number of you slating the Ramsdale signing before he pulled on the shirt. I said I’d never seen a keeper with such sharp reactions and the ability to use his legs as well as his hands to stop shots, at least give a little “ hands up we were wrong “ you know who you are, we can all use the search function ?.

337

1.) 31 Oct 2021 06:51:04
I certainly didn’t understand the signing, not because of the ability or price tag but because we had a very good keeper in Martinez then sold him so the money could have been spent elsewhere, that was my only gripe . Ramsdale has started brilliantly and his kicking is incredible.

My biggest concern in the window was White as I thought 50 million is and was too much, currently I still don’t see much difference between him and Holding ………early days though and defences are judged on clean sheets .


2.) 31 Oct 2021 08:26:46
Hello 337 mate, I was one of the gobsmacked brigade when we bought him. didn't say he was a bad keeper but could not understand the rationale behind buying him, plus he had been relegated twice on the trott didn't exactly enlighten his cv.

He is proving a lot of people wrong me included and also a pat on the back for Arteta/ Edu for sticking their necks out and buying him.


3.) 31 Oct 2021 11:02:02
No one knew how Ramsdale and White were going to work out before they played for us, how could they?

It's always better to give any player 6 to 10 games before building them a statue or demanding the managers head for signing them.

But football is an emotional sport and people will always make emotional judgements such as with Elneny Mari and Perez when lots of fans called them fantastic Arsenal signings despite never actually having seen them kick a ball ?????.
it's always easier to remember other people's bad calls than it is our own, which we quickly forget and hope everyone else does too ???????.


4.) 31 Oct 2021 11:09:04
My concern was his ability to play out from the back but we seem to have ditched that a bit and he will lace the ball if in doubt. His reputation on playing from the back and Arteta’s desire to play from the back was my issue as made no sense. It was more a question mark over the recruitment than the player. We also kept the wrong keeper and sold a keeper who was vocal, commanded the box and could catch a ball. Leno could have been sold for a decent wedge while we sold Emi for 20m and replaced him with a disaster keeper for 1m. We then spent 30m on a keeper and 50m on a CD - I thought a misuse of money as we needed other players and could have kept Emi.
Rambo doing well
Ben - still question marks as weak in the air as shown at the free kick yesterday when he could not win a header and pushed a player over on the D. Resulting free kick led to save of the season but White’s attempt to win the header was a joke and that’s my concern with him - hopefully we develop that one area and he becomes a star. Nothing to do with price tag but more about having a CD that can do his main job - defending.


5.) 31 Oct 2021 12:03:48
Very good post SY

Totally agree.


6.) 31 Oct 2021 13:50:50
What was is past and ain't coming back and can't be rewritten no matter how we feel about it, positive or negative.

Ramsdale and Leno are what is and in reality are all that are really relevant to what will be.


7.) 31 Oct 2021 14:45:42
But a discussion worth having nonetheless eh? If we can discuss the past we would only post for the 90 minutes of a football match ?

And by the time it appears on here it would be history lol.


8.) 31 Oct 2021 18:20:27
Well said everyone nice to see we can all still get on lol
Not sure they’re such a happy family on the spuds page ??.


9.) 31 Oct 2021 18:43:17
Very true Banbury mate, the present is not always a source of good conversation so we all naturally drift back to the past and towards the future, there is nothing wrong with either, but for me personally I have no nostalgic longing to relive the rights and wrongs of Brexit all over again, it's done and dusted for me.
Now talk climate change or saving the Orangutan and other species from extinction where everything us still to play for and you've got my interest ????.


10.) 31 Oct 2021 20:22:16
True 62 but to change the future you need to look at the past to not repeat them and to measure the improvement otherwise we wouldn’t know how high sea levels have risen or it’s the warmest day or what industry has or has not improved. You need to have history to show the effects of doing nothing….


11.) 31 Oct 2021 21:55:43
I so agree SY and it was important for those who twigged on first to point out to the rest of us what was happening and where we had been and continue to go wrong.
Unfortunately there is no going back back and not doing what we've already done, for me it's all about accepting where we've gone wrong in the past, which I think 95% of people do now and concentrating on what can be done in the here and now and the future to give us our best chance of looking back in a few years time and saying, few that was close.

Sadly what's lost already is unfortunately lost but it's what can be saved that we've got to consecrate on.


 

 

18 Oct 2021 20:52:51
Apparently there’s a great young keeper up for grabs for £30million, although he’s also apparently expensive, not needed and was to blame for his last 2 teams being relegated!

Any of you got anything to say now? You know who you are ?.

337

{Ed014's Note - I’m well impressed with him mate, think he’d even be a good captain although I prefer them as an outfield player.


1.) 18 Oct 2021 21:16:53
You prefer goalkeepers as our field players Ed? ??.

{Ed014's Note - sod off ???


2.) 18 Oct 2021 21:25:53
Shame you can’t say the same about odergard is he even playing.


3.) 18 Oct 2021 21:52:52
He’s very good BUT for me the money could have been spent elsewhere

A good investment but maybe spent in the wrong window.


 

 

17 Sep 2021 08:07:39
Where’s Wesley?

Welcome to Arsenal Jack Wilshere ?.

337

1.) 17 Sep 2021 12:03:14
No! Surely not?
Well just when you thought Arsenal couldn't go any further back, unbelievably Jeff, unbelievably ??????????????.


2.) 17 Sep 2021 13:38:50
Have we signed him or let him train with us?


3.) 17 Sep 2021 14:21:12
I've absolutely no idea mate, but I find it absolutely hilarious that Jack and Arsenal are getting back together in any way is actually a thing in any way shape or form ????.

{Ed014's Note - he’s just possibly training with us whilst he tries to find a club.


4.) 17 Sep 2021 14:33:42
Think that’s a nice touch by the club.


5.) 17 Sep 2021 16:09:00
So do I SY, i think we should offer all lifelong Hammers fans a chance to train with us ?

How true it is I don't know but Arteta is alleged to have approach Jack and Jack is thinking about it, if true what could Possibly go wrong ????.

{Ed014's Note - Jack has been looking for somewhere to keep fit 62, you should really be surfing the conspiracy pages mate. ??

Arteta said, “I wouldn’t take it that far [that he could play for us again]. What I’m saying is that we’re in conversations with him to understand what he needs, how we can help him and that’s it.”


6.) 17 Sep 2021 16:58:19
Hi Ed014 mate, your probably right and Mikel is Just helping an old friend out while he trys to find a club mate, must be my cynical self taking over but I just can't help but see Mikel and Jack coming up with a plan to get Jack registered to play for us again, Mikel Edu and Josh have a reputation for bizarre decisions ????.

{Ed014's Note - I know what you mean mate but Jacks position is not one we’re even lacking in to be fair so it really would be a miracle if it happened.


7.) 17 Sep 2021 17:08:28
I get what you are saying 100% Ed014 and it would be totally illogical to register Jack to play for us again.

But Just because it's illogical it doesn't mean it won't happen at Arsenal on Mikel Edu and Joshs watch ????????.

{Ed014's Note - don’t get me wrong, I get where you’re coming from as they have pulled some beauties out of the bag but I’m not seeing this as one of them but I’m bound to be proved wrong now! ??


8.) 17 Sep 2021 19:43:39
Can you imagine sending Saliba out on loan and then signing Jack. That would sum us up perfectly.


9.) 17 Sep 2021 21:39:20
The fact it's not completely unimaginable, says it all SY ????.


10.) 17 Sep 2021 17:23:12
Well one of us will definitely be wrong Ed014 mate, and let's face it when it comes to being wrong about future predictions, we both have lots of previous to be taken into consideration mate ???????.

{Ed014's Note - absolutely mate I’m not even sure why I got involved in the conversation as it’s all bound to go wrong for me! ??


 

 

02 Sep 2021 08:03:03
So Guendouzi has been called up to the french senior squad
Shame, I really like him and with maturity will be a top player but probably not for us 🤔.

337

1.) 02 Sep 2021 09:48:31
The lad needed a hand to manage his personality but that is not where Mikels strengths lay, I'm not sure where Mikels strengths do actually lay but without having a go at him man management and handling individuals hasn't appeared to be something he is skilled in.

Guendozi has loads of raw passion and I personally liked seeing him express that passion for Arsenal whether on the pitch from the bench.


2.) 02 Sep 2021 10:14:31
That’s not fair on arteta John

Emery had loads of problems with him as well.


3.) 02 Sep 2021 11:27:23
I would love Guendouzi back at Arsenal. That bit of spite and Aggression would add something to our team. Him and Saliba have been booted out.


4.) 02 Sep 2021 12:15:14
Didn't really think he was as good as he seemed to think. Sure enough there was potential so I wouldn't mind if we somehow managed to keep him around.


5.) 02 Sep 2021 13:00:31
Hi Mark, if it was only Guendozi, Mikel struggled with then I would certainly be being harsh on Arteta mate, but it appear Mikel struggles with a number of players on the man management side of things

To get the best out of any group of people your charge of you have to be able adapt to each person on an individual level as well has having across the board rules if you are going to get the best out a group. I personally see no sign of that being something Mikel is good at.


6.) 02 Sep 2021 14:12:15
But John the players did the same to Emery

It can’t be the managers fault all the time. It’s clear to see some players are a law onto themselves.

{Ed014's Note - I understand that Malaga but Arteta has alienated some talented youngster as well as falling out with senior pros.

Ed02 has alluded to this and Ed01 to the fact Arteta has knocked all the confidence from Lacazette by his actions on the touch line alone.

Managers have still managed to get the best out of players even if they didn’t see eye to eye. Arteta appears to be unable to resolve any issue but just steps away from it.

When has it ever been a good thing to bite your nose off to spite your face.


7.) 02 Sep 2021 14:22:54
Lets not forget he also had issues in Germany with Hertha Berlin so is clearly an issue with the player. Sometimes there just isn't much you can do with certain people no matter how good your man management skills are.

look at Ravel Morrison, how many managers has he played under?


8.) 02 Sep 2021 14:49:30
Hi 14, I know what you’re saying. Edoo2 also said Gundozy wanted out to join a bigger club

I have come to realise Mikel is not the right man for the job, but he has done good with some of the youngsters.


9.) 02 Sep 2021 15:00:08
Like Saka and ESR. I think he has helped Pepe too.

We'll see how he handles the new lot. The good news is, with all of these youngsters, if they're up for it, they can forge a real group mentality. That normally requires a bit of senior leadership though, and we seem short of that at the moment.


10.) 02 Sep 2021 14:27:05
Who are all these young players? The ones that have all just signed new long term deals? ESR? Balagun? Tierney? Saka?

If you mean Saliba? that will because he isn't the defender Arteta wants he is not a ball playing defender and will not progress from the back.

{Ed014's Note - surely it doesn’t hurt to have a defender who can defend, such as Saliba, next to a ball player such as White? 🤷‍♂️


11.) 02 Sep 2021 15:16:52
Hi Ed014 mate, as you say some of the Eds have given insight on this page as to Arteta struggling to form good working relationship with several players and the things we have all witnessed and the facts we certain quite a few players being completely frozen by Mikel back this information up very heavily.

As for people naming a handful of younger players who can get on with Mikel, well even Donald Trump didn't fall out with and fire everyone is his administration, I think handful who never questioned anything he said or did actually survived the full 4 years with him, so Mikel would have to go some to not be able to work with absolutely anyone at all.


12.) 02 Sep 2021 18:40:19
How many of those youngsters Credit Freddie over Arteta? Saka was a huge Freddie fan.


13.) 02 Sep 2021 21:33:33
Plus emery brought them youngsters into the squad first.


 

 

31 Aug 2021 20:03:35
TOMIYASU ( correct spelling) could be exactly what we need, people saying he’s not a CB or a RB doesn’t concern me as apparently he’s capable in both positions and also in CM. Not sure if anyone remembers the season we had no LB, s due to injury and flamini stepped in and became one of the best LB, s in the league.
I used to love the days when we would find a practically unknown gem of a player and he would come good.
Also remember us signing a fairly unknown winger called Terry or something and AW decided he might be alright up front.

337

1.) 31 Aug 2021 20:17:42
If he’s rock hard and can’t be bullied then suits me.


2.) 31 Aug 2021 20:39:27
Bambury mate he just needs to ignore whatever Arteta has been teling our current players, can't go wrong.


3.) 31 Aug 2021 20:50:56
So another squad player when we really need to improve our starting 11 - brilliant!

We aren’t a crappy bottom half team - we should be able to sign a quality player who has a specialised position. We have AMN that can play all over the place.

What’s wrong with signing a bloody good RB then a good CM rather than a jack of all squad player. How can we improve if we don’t sign quality.

Thought we wanted - Max Aarons

Now we have to put up with a squad player and Cedric

So uninspiring from Edu this window. Sorry but it’s just crap

How have we improved our starting 11 that’s bottom of the league and please don’t say White.


4.) 31 Aug 2021 20:55:05
We know nothing about him so let's give the bloke 5 games either way before declaring him a brilliant or waste of time, who'd heard of Kante Mahrez or Vardy before the season they all grabbed everyone's attention?
Or Kim Kalstrom Perez or Sanogo either come to that?


5.) 31 Aug 2021 20:57:56
Yet again, judging players before they’ve even kicked a ball for us! Do you stand in the crowd shouting “ you’re s**t” at our players during the warm up?


6.) 31 Aug 2021 21:01:37
Whites had 90 minutes SY

I remember Pat Rice brining Vieira on as sub for his first game and thinking we'd signed a basket ball player by mistake!

Give white and all other untried players a chance before we write them off or build them a statue.


7.) 31 Aug 2021 21:13:53
I get where SY is coming from, we are in a bad place and need proven talent to get us out of this mess, that or a new manager. On the other hand, we do need to give the signings a chance to prove their worth.


8.) 31 Aug 2021 21:19:56
I’m not writing them off and I’m sure once we get a brute to play alongside White like every pro is saying he requires then we will be fine. My point is we haven’t signed the quality names we were linked with and for key positions the starting 11 who are rock bottom need.

I like the young CDM but will he improve us this season? Where are the leaders and why can’t we sign a proper right back, a proper partner for Partey rather than Granit and a quality creative player and goal threat.

We were screaming for a right back - per Ed, this is a CB who “can play” RB. Why shouldn’t I be frustrated as my standards are high.

What’s the point in White if we don’t have the right player (S) to partner him. Most pros are saying exactly that - he gets bullied. Why can’t we see this.


9.) 31 Aug 2021 21:34:33
That bloke called Terry was well known at Monaco before he went to juventus then us…. odegaard didn’t really pull any trees up last season couldn’t even get in Madrid’s team and we go and pay £30m to have him back so it’s not about giving them a chance is it…
We’ve needed a quality right back for 2-3 years now so why not get a special-ist player for the position….


10.) 31 Aug 2021 21:38:28
Two things SY mate
Partey was pretty good quality but so far not done anything to improve us
Plus we haven't challenged for over a decade and half so why would top quality names come to us mate, Money? Look how that's worked out for us far .

We have to accept where we are now and put aside who we were 20 years ago.

There is no point in us winding ourselves up about what we can't change or poor singings who haven't yet set foot on the Emirates pitch.


11.) 31 Aug 2021 21:48:06
As a positive to where we are now, we won’t be able to offer the ridiculous wages we have in the past and then be unable to get rid of players. Today it’s been reported that agreements haven’t been able to be made with two players because of their demands, partly, I guess because of what they’re currently being paid. At least Willian can leave with honour.


12.) 31 Aug 2021 22:12:12
Regardless of who we sign, the upper levels of the club need a major overhaul. Kroenke doesn't give a crap, Edu and his agent need to do one and don't get me started on Arteta.


13.) 31 Aug 2021 22:32:16
I agree Sparky but none of that is going to happen anytime soon, Arteta maybe sacked after the Norwich game as a token of good will but the Kronkee's aren't going anywhere in the foreseeable future mate.


14.) 31 Aug 2021 22:43:03
With this current setup the team will go on a 30 game unbeaten run and then they will sack Arteta :)


15.) 31 Aug 2021 22:58:32
If that's what it takes to before Arteta is sacked Sparky mate, then Mikel has a job for life at Arsenal 🤗.

Rant? It wasn’t actually aimed at your comments JE it was more at others, however now you’ve made it personal I’ll respond.
I’m actually sick of seeing people just constantly whinging and moaning with absolutely nothing positive to say about players who haven’t even signed yet. Do you think if they read these forums they would actually want to join now?
My point is you lot haven’t even given these young players a chance yet, but you know better than people that run a billion pound football club because you spent some pocket change on a season ticket and played FIFA a few times.
Just so you know my son is a professional footballer, he’s 18 and he is on his clubs page all the time, so maybe give these signings a chance before you lot write them off!

I will go missing now before I say something to some of you serial moaners that gets me banned, but I’ll be back to remind you all when any of our new signings show their potential and you lot change your tune 👀.

Let’s hope he realises his potential with us, rather him than some of the others we’ve been linked with, when he came to us last season he wasn’t 100% fit but showed sparks of some special talent. These young players which are hyped up at a very young age tend to let it go to their heads, I’m hoping he’s matured and takes the opportunity to make a name for his self.

That would be the perfect pathway I reckon sally, if he really really wants to stay his agent should listen to him and negotiate the best deal possible and he should sign it, unfortunately these young players are sometimes manipulated by agents to get the most money over happiness ( not saying his agent is doing this of course) 😜.
