Hi ed002. Would you please provide us with a treat and name the final CDM arsenal are looking at please. From your posts I know it's bissouma; Berge and someone else. Think everyone here will really appreciate it.


{Ed002's Note - It will end up with me being abused and being told I am misleading you again. Not worth the grief.}

1.) 24 May 2021 21:02:23
No you won’t ed I think everyone knows how much we appreciate you all.

2.) 24 May 2021 21:07:44
Ahh no worries Ed. The real posters really do respect you and the other Ed’s though mate.

3.) 25 May 2021 10:12:03
The trouble is Dags, we can all appreciate it but the info is accessible to everyone. If Ed provided information then the people who do hurl the abuse his way still get to see it. It's a case of the minority spoiling it for everyone else unfortunately.



31 Mar 2021 13:13:12
Hi Ed, I saw before you said Hakimi didn't find arsenal an attractive club. Would you said securing champions league football helps with being attractive or is being attractive deeper than this?


{Ed002's Note - Being in the Champions League would certainly help.}

1.) 31 Mar 2021 15:26:09
Thanks Ed.



04 Mar 2021 08:44:28
Hi Ed. Would you be able to provide a list of potential incomings for the summer please? Thank you!


{Ed002's Note - Ask in a week or two please.}

1.) 12 Mar 2021 15:15:50
No worries Ed thank you. Is now a better time for you to provide a list please?

{Ed002's Note - Not yet.}

2.) 18 Mar 2021 22:39:14
What about now ed.

{Ed002's Note - Try later next week please.}

3.) 19 Mar 2021 15:12:49
Ha everyone is watching this thread. Thanks Ed!

4.) 24 Mar 2021 09:39:40
What’s about now lol.



27 Jan 2021 12:38:21
Hi Ed, would you mind providing us with a list or an update on our left back situation please.


{Ed002's Note - It is true that Arsenal have asked a representative of Marseille about ex-Aston Villa defender Jordan Amavi and she has explained he is out injured right now.}

1.) 27 Jan 2021 13:19:37
Do you reckon he would be a good signing?

{Ed002's Note - He would simply be cover - it seems suffiecient cover already exists to me.}

2.) 27 Jan 2021 14:48:08
Who? Cedric? Don’t think so mate.

{Ed002's Note - I didn't say anything about Cedric. What's wrong with you?}

3.) 27 Jan 2021 16:00:20
No need to ask what’s wrong with me. I was asking if you meant Cedric.

4.) 27 Jan 2021 16:23:58
Dags, for me Cedric was man of the match and he was playing lb

Wtf do you want out the Arsenal, I think you need a reality check son.

5.) 27 Jan 2021 17:45:55
I’m saying that we have one left back. Yes Cedric played well yesterday but it was one match. He is not left footed. Against Southampton in the FA cup we needed a natural left back. Against Crystal Palace, maitland-niles played there, again we needed a natural left back. If you don’t think we need another left back then you and Ed need to wipe your eyes.

6.) 27 Jan 2021 18:21:09
Oooooh handbags 👜 at 10 paces and to think we once thought dags and Malaga were the same person 😂
Maybe they are both and ed02 is them as well
It’s a BANTER site guys remember and chill your beanz 🤣🤣.

7.) 27 Jan 2021 19:55:28
Haha all fun and games mate🤣.

8.) 27 Jan 2021 22:52:22
I wouldn't mind seeing Gabriel or Mari given a go there either. Both seem very capable and it's a shame to exclude them when both are fit. I enjoyed Cedric's performance though. Saka can also play there, but we lose our best attacker.

9.) 27 Jan 2021 22:52:48
Hey Dags smile buddy and what happens with the club we have to accept.

10.) 28 Jan 2021 10:29:40
I do agree that we should have a natural LB as cover for Tierney, but it doesn't seem feasible to have 5 full backs (should we sign Amavi this window) for two competitions now. Would rather we sign him on a pre-contract to join in the summer, then look to shift AMN for a decent fee as I can't see him having a future here (I'd also sell Bellerin if the right offer was made and then go for Max Aarons)

11.) 28 Jan 2021 18:54:20
Deffo agree on the Max Aaron’s for Bellerin CB. That’s a good shout.

12.) 29 Jan 2021 12:29:05
Just out of interest Ed who do you believe is cover for Tierney? Assuming saka? As niles is going out on loan so imagine saka and cedric will be used as cover.

{Ed002's Note - Saka is available to provide cover.}

13.) 29 Jan 2021 15:51:59
I think Cedric ahould be our first choice RB tbh. if that does happen and AMN gets a loan deal then yes, Saka would be our cover. Not great to have one of our best attackers as cover for LB, I know we needed players off the wage bill and perhaps Kolasniac was not happy not playing, but I always thought he did a solid job as cover if not setting the world on fire 🤷.



31 Dec 2020 14:58:05
Hi Ed. Thank you for the list of outgoings. Would you be able to give us a list of the potential incomings for January/ Summer please.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal will keep looking and don't expect too much in January - and remember the club have already gambled a lot of future income away, so funds will be very thin on the ground:

Omar Rekik (CB) youngster joining from Hertha Berlin - I would think a loan is likely.
Dominik Szoboszlai (LM/CM) Moving elsewher.
Fabio Vieira (RM/CM) an ex Arsenal player recommended FV who would likely be open to a move if Arsenal were to find the required €30M.
Joan Jordan (CM) Another midfield option - but not cheap.
Berkay Ozcan (CM) Only moved in the summer but Arsenal have asked if Basaksehir would be open to making a profit on the player. Apparently not - a missed opportunity in the summer.
Julian Brandt (AM) again a player being considered by Arsenal. He would be a reasonable price and would be an Oezil replacement.
Leon Bailey (LW/RW) A player who has had his mojo drifting away and Bayer Leverkusen are open to moving on this winter. Spurs are keen but want the price to drop further. Prior interest of Everton and Leeds has drifted away - Everton already being over loaded with players who are predominently LW and Leeds have preferred options. Arsenal may offer an option.
Donyell Malen (F) Arsenal want to resign the player to replace Lacazette. Borussia Dortmund have him on their list of Sancho replacements. Won't return to Arsenal.
Maxi Gomez (S) Financial issues at Valencia mean that they will listen to offers for players but want to hold on to Gaya whilst they have told interested sides that neither Carlos Soler or Maxi Gomez would be sold cheaply. I am not aware of any approach by Arsenal who would see him as a replacement for Lacazette perhaps. Whilst his price is high, his return in terms of goals is not great. Very unlikely.

1.) 31 Dec 2020 16:23:19
Thanks Ed!

2.) 31 Dec 2020 16:42:48
Thanks Ed. Any idea if the Rekik guy is good? Also Ed, any idea if Saliba is good?

{Ed002's Note - Saliba is seen as a very good player by those in the French game. Arsenal has a whole bunch of unhappy players - he as you can expect is one. Arsenal have wasted a chunk of his career. Omar Rekik has a good reputation as a player but there have been issues (the same issue) at Feyenoord, PSV, Manchester City and Marseille where he has spent time as a youngster. The lady from Marseille made it clear tehy were happy to let him move on. Not ready for the first team and probably more CB fodder for Arsenal.}

3.) 31 Dec 2020 19:32:28
Thanks Ed, Happy New Year.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome. Enjoy you new year.}

4.) 01 Jan 2021 15:27:48
Great info -thanks Ed and happy new year. Sounds like a quiet Jan for Arsenal.

03 Jul 2021 15:07:02
Ed001 you must know because you watch everyone lol. Is ramsdalea good keeper? Arsenal keep being linked with him and I don't get it, don't rate him one bit.


{Ed001's Note - he started to look good by the end of last season, started off awful but he improved. Not sure he suits Arsenal as his problem is that he wants to sit on his line, he doesn't want to be on the ball playing it out from the back.}

1.) 03 Jul 2021 15:21:09
It looks like Arsenal's judgement is fogged due to the criteria of getting in a homegrown GK.

2.) 03 Jul 2021 16:17:22
Thanks Ed, I hope we don’t get him.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

3.) 04 Jul 2021 12:23:52
I am the other way, I hope we do. I just don’t get the obsession of buying cheap euro trash over established home grown players. I played in goal, and I can confirm the best thing that ever happened to me was playing in a poor team. Yes I conceded more goals that season than any other, but I learned and improved massively. I think Ramsdale had a similar season, and should benefit greatly from it.



26 Jun 2021 10:52:47
Hi Ed001 mate. I haven't seen much of Ben white, no doubt you have though lol. What type of a player are arsenal getting here and do you think he will be a good signing? Thanks as always mate.


{Ed001's Note - very good footballer, calm on the ball etc but can get a bit carried away and overrun it. He is still young and rash, prone to throwing himself in and either committing a needless foul or allowing a player to get away from him. He is quick, decent in the air, not too bad positionally, strong and works hard. Overall a very good player. Not sure he is a good signing though, as he is no better than Saliba from what I have seen, so not sure you need him. I mean centre-back was probably the last area you needed to invest in, just about every other position on the pitch you are short in except that one! It makes no sense to me.}

1.) 26 Jun 2021 11:49:02
Which is why 50 mill is a bloody waste, love to know who sits and makes these decisions.

2.) 26 Jun 2021 13:11:56
Thanks Ed for that. I don’t understand the signing but I won’t care if we get Bissouma.

{Ed001's Note - I will care if you get Bissouma, as I want him to sign for Liverpool!}

3.) 27 Jun 2021 02:26:06
Ed001, do you think Brighton would be open to selling both white and bissouma in the same window or would they look to try hold onto one if day Ben white left for 50+.

{Ed001's Note - I don't see any reason why it would be relevant that a player in a completely different position left. They need to raise funds to build a side, particularly a forward, which is usually the most expensive part.}



16 Jun 2021 16:48:08
Hi Ed, would you mind explaining how arsenal have the money to bid £40m for Ben White please. Are we risking money again as we did last year with the hope of CL football?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation over and over - it is clear.}

1.) 16 Jun 2021 20:53:49
Amazing, half the Arsenal fans upset that we are unable to sign players because we never bid the proper acceptable amount. Now someone is upset that we are actually trying to sign someone.

{Ed014's Note - that and he’s asked ed02 another annoying question to follow that one, does my head in! 🤦‍♂️

2.) 16 Jun 2021 21:37:52
Stick him on the shelf Ed, for the rest of the transfer window.

{Ed014's Note - ed02 may yet mate, the question is still waiting for him.

3.) 16 Jun 2021 21:42:33
Don’t you just miss my transfer rumours, I use to get more abuse than Edoo2 lol.

{Ed014's Note - that’s a good point, have you retired? 😂

4.) 16 Jun 2021 21:46:57
I retired at the top mate, it’s the only way to go out😀.

{Ed014's Note - absolutely mate, the stuff of legends!

5.) 16 Jun 2021 19:55:43
Ed sorry mate, I have no idea. Literally don’t know the situation because I know u said we don’t have money.

6.) 16 Jun 2021 22:10:14
Was not moaning, only wondering if kroenke put money in his pocket or if we hoping we generate money.



02 Jun 2021 10:11:54
Hi ed001, hope you're doing well mate. I thought at one stage you done a top 10 goal keepers in Europe post but I can't seem to find it. Would you mind giving a brief summary of the strengths and weaknesses of Onana, I've seen him play once and he made a mistake against Liverpool.


{Ed001's Note - that was a long time ago I did that on goalkeepers. I haven't seen Onana play this season, but he was a good shotstopper, agile and quick across the ground but dodgy positionally and a bit rash when I last saw him.}

1.) 02 Jun 2021 10:58:37
Thanks Ed. I’m not actually sure if he was in your top 10 keepers. You reckon he will be a great signing for arsenal then mate?

{Ed001's Note - I can't remember if he was either, it was a long time ago and I did a British goalkeepers one since. He should be a decent signing though it has to be a worry that he is serving a 12-month doping ban. I don't agree with the nonsense about mistakes, they know what they can and cannot take.}

2.) 02 Jun 2021 15:07:15
Agree Ed, anyone sports person who takes their career seriously wouldn't find themselves in his situation. From what i've read he was found with Furosemide in his system, which is a diuretic (water tablet) , so makes you pee more. Athletes have been known to use these types of drugs to flush their system and mask the use of other banned substances. Hence why diuretics are banned in most sports.

3.) 02 Jun 2021 16:41:44
Thanks Ed!

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}



19 May 2021 09:42:09
Hi Ed001, question for you mate: Sander Berge or Bissouma got Arsenal and why?


{Ed001's Note - Bissouma because he is a much better player.}

1.) 20 May 2021 09:30:37
100% agree with this Ed. Berge would be a cheaper and good option but Bissouma would be the great option.

2.) 20 May 2021 09:46:44
Thanks Ed. You reckon he will join Liverpool or arsenal mate?

{Ed001's Note - no idea.}

Ed have you still not heard anything about the contract mate? When you say you haven’t heard anything I usually take it as it ain’t happening then.


{Ed002's Note - I have no interest in contracts.}

22 Jul 2021 14:21:28
Hopefully that answers ColdIce question then. Ed, would you be able to provide us with an update on Ramsdale in terms of us pushing for a deal?


{Ed002's Note - That is not a proper sentence. I have explained there is interest from Arsenal.}

22 Jul 2021 11:40:13
Ed I think the fella above is saying why are arsenal selling one of the best keepers in the league for £20m and looking to buy a keeper who hasn’t proved themselves for £30m.


{Ed002's Note - Emi Martinez wanted first team football and wanted out of Arsenal. He had pretty much no chance of playing at Arsenal. Aaron Ramsdale is young and will be able to take over from Leno at some point.}

Ed has arsenals interest in Bissouma ended? Also do you see him leaving Brighton this summer given they have his replacement already.


{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}
