Ódegaard close according to Ornstein.


1.) 17 Aug 2021 21:20:36
Well happy with this bud 👍🏻.

2.) 17 Aug 2021 22:28:31
Same here. He will improve us in the attacking third a lot.

3.) 17 Aug 2021 22:51:32
Happy with this signing. I'd like to think the money saved we will put towards a cf.

4.) 17 Aug 2021 22:39:21
I don’t see it.
I think he’s lacking aggression in his game to influence at the highest level and it’s a reason he hasn’t caught Ancelottis eye at a time when Madrid are wanting to keep the best they have as they are not in a position to spend.
I think it’s lazy by Arteta and Edu if we do indeed make the signing and I think it’s a massive risk at all round.

5.) 17 Aug 2021 23:43:46
Another vanilla player who adds very little and clearly easy for Arteta to manage - him and White don’t cut it for a window that should be addressing issues

White - needs a commanding CD next to him
No change in GK or RB which required changes
CDM - no improvement without Bissouma
Creativity and goals - no real improvement in fact may be worse with Willock going
Cover for left back ✅

In all a crappy window as haven’t moved players on while we are stuck with Granit, Laca, Willian and pea who don’t want to be here and Arteta can manage

Seriously poor window despite board spending big on an area that wasn’t required and may create a new problem.

6.) 18 Aug 2021 02:17:09
No doubt help is needed in many areas and I can't say tbat I wasn't frustrated with Odegaard many times last year. But he did show signs of settling in and he had a couple of very good games, that if repeatable, would slot him in with Tierney, Saka, and, hopefully, Smith Rowe and White as players worth building around.

If nothing else, we get a player to rotate through the front that maybe keeps Willian off the pitch. If nothing else, Kia doesn't weasel Coutinho in on deadline day and set us back another five years.

7.) 18 Aug 2021 07:20:43
Odegaard is described by some managers and pundits as the perfect professional. He has an excellent attitude, can't fault his work rate, great vision and range of passing, is versatile and is still only 22. He's exactly the signing we need and if other players around him were more clinical, everyone would of been screaming to make the deal permanent. I'm happy with the Odegaard signing especially if it means we don't now spend silly money on primadonnas like Maddison.

{Ed001's Note - I must have watched a different player.}

8.) 18 Aug 2021 07:40:59
Not who wanted but getting him for 34 million better then the 65 they wanted.

9.) 18 Aug 2021 11:30:36
Same old thing nothing will change. didn’t exactly light the place up last time.

10.) 18 Aug 2021 16:42:46
I don’t get what people have seen in Odegaard to be happy with this signing. All he did was push ESR out of position because MA has a man crush on him. Slows the game down just as much a Granite does. No improvement in what we already had in our very own gunner Joe Willock, Joe’s better in my opinion.
So we waste £50m on White (who we didn’t need) and waste £30m on MO (who’s no improvement in what we had) we can’t even shift out players that we don’t want n who don’t want to be here!
What a shambles of a window this has been.
Edu, Arteta and anyone else that has a say in transfers are an absolute joke! Get them out ASAP!

Im sorry for the negative post but I don’t see any change from the mediocrity we’ve been watching for years, in fact we’re getting worse!

I love Arsenal to death but I’m seriously hating the way this club is being ruined by inept people who are punching well above there weight! ☹️.

11.) 18 Aug 2021 18:05:25
Interesting Ed001, could you please share your opinion on Ødegaard? I've read frequently that you've got the best judgement of players amongst the Eds and I'd love to know what you think about Ødegaard and how you expect him to fare in the PL.

{Ed001's Note - I think he is a very average player, with a poor attitude (which is why he got booted straight back to the reserves on joining Madrid, even though his contract specified he had to be involved with the first team training a number of times a week) and doesn't work hard enough. He is not majorly lazy, just not giving his all, and that applies in training too, which is why he has failed to make the progress he should have. Let's be honest, if he still had the rep he did at 15, then there is no chance Arsenal would get his signing. The reason he is joining Arsenal is because he has underachieved massively and that is down to only one person - him. He doesn't do enough, on the pitch or the training ground, to improve.

He is one of those players that will end his career as unfulfilled potential, sadly. He doesn't have that quickness of thought that the top players have either.}

12.) 18 Aug 2021 18:42:04
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.

13.) 18 Aug 2021 18:43:33
Average player got a average side for a average club

Fits in well.

14.) 18 Aug 2021 19:44:17
Yaaaawwwwn and it’s only one game in to the season! Seriously some of you should maybe go and “ SUPPORT” another club or maybe google the word “ support”.

15.) 18 Aug 2021 21:01:36
Insanity. doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

16.) 19 Aug 2021 00:37:04
Opposite to Ramsdale. Great attitude, zero potential.

17.) 18 Aug 2021 22:23:26
I trust your judgement Ed001, thanks for your 2 cents. The optimist in me feels that if he gets a club who gives him the superstar value he thought he'd get in Madrid and a place where he thinks he can thrive, one can hope he can harness his potential. At 22, he's already has had a fairly long career and that could very well be his advantage in turning around his career in London. I feel he's technically gifted but I'll now ve reserved about my opinion on him knowing his attitude is an issue.

{Ed001's Note - thank you IG. Fingers crossed I am wrong as I would love to see him achieve the potential everyone expected of him when he was still a young teen.}

18.) 19 Aug 2021 06:41:18
Don’t question my support for this club 337 just because of a rant mate, it obviously shows my passion for the club. I love The Arsenal I don’t just support them. I’m not a season ticket holder so I pay a lot of money to go watch Arsenal play every season.
I guess with your overwhelming support you were sat there at the final whistle against Brentford clapping our club on were you? Embarrassing if so!
If your happy with mediocrity mate then good for you but I’m not n nor are others on here, we want what’s best fir the club and right now Arsenal are unidentifiable.

Oh and I googled support mate…
No I’m not a scaffold but yes I’ve pumped a lot of money into Arsenal over the years so there’s some support for ya fella 👍🏻

Onwards n upwards


19.) 19 Aug 2021 07:56:57
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 👀.

20.) 19 Aug 2021 19:29:44
👍👍👍👍 Yeah!



07 Jul 2021 12:16:33
Hi Eds

Any truth regarding the return in interest of Aouar? Seen today that we are set to put a bid in around €25m mark.


{Ed002's Note - Houssem Aouar (CM) Lyon were frustrated by Arsenal not taking a realistic approach to trying to complete the transfer of the player last summer and with PSG for failing to make a suitable offer. Having lost out on their primary CM choice there remains a chance PSG could look to him again. With the impact of the broadcasting losses, clubs in France are facing a difficult time and Lyon have reduced their €60M asking price this summer to ensure a sale. Juventus interest has drifted as they have a preferred target in mind after failed offers including Federico Bernardeschi and Mattia De Sciglio, who Lyon are keen on but they want to separate the deals. There has been concern about his recent form and this was reflected by Real Madrid showing no interest when approached by his agent approached by his agent. Barcelona were also approached but they will not be in a position to do anything unless Frenkie de Jong is tempted away from the club. Fabio Paratici has taken his interest from Juventus to Spurs. Manchester City, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and others have sent scouts to watch him over the past couple of seasons but none have declared an interest or looked to make an offer for Aouar. Arsenal will be told a take it or leave it price and be expected to pay it - a third party will be used by Arsenal in any direct discussions. Atletico Madrid will offer an option if Saul leaves with De Paul also arriving.}

1.) 07 Jul 2021 13:15:30
would aouar even agree to a transfer to arsenal? I thought he would now want to go to a club that plays in the CL.

{Ed002's Note - Juventus was the likely destination but the drop in form made them look elsewhere and they found another target - who they have since lost out on, so they have moved to another target. The player wanted the move to Turin but it looks like it won't be an option. I think the player will want to see what options he has. Right now it is not much.}

2.) 07 Jul 2021 15:30:00
Thanks Ed!

3.) 07 Jul 2021 17:38:25
I just want us to be 24 Aouar Partey people.

I can't take credit for that, it was someone else's comment last year, and I still think it's golden.

4.) 07 Jul 2021 15:59:37
Thanks Ed, brilliant info yet again!

5.) 07 Jul 2021 17:23:24
I can see why Aouar`s selling fee has dropped as Lyon need the money and his apparent loss of form but the amount potentially £35 mill less seems drastic! Seems the same with Pjanic who was worth £60mill only a year ago. Remains to be seen to see if whoever buys them they are a bargain or other teams were right to swerve them . Are Arsenal looking at Pjanic Ed? Thanks in advance COYG.

{Ed002's Note - No but there is interest from England.}

6.) 07 Jul 2021 23:37:34
Hah, enjoyed that one Alex.



04 Jun 2021 02:50:52
Opening bid of £30m rejected by Norwich for Buendia, talks on going.
From Afc Bell on Twitter.


1.) 04 Jun 2021 06:54:25
We can get aoura for 40 Surely he’s a better option.

2.) 06 Jun 2021 09:31:07
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.



29 May 2021 19:33:09
Hi Eds, hope your all well, and keeping safe. Any news on Raheem Sterling, good sources saying he is up for sale and previous interest from Arsenal. Is there any interest?

TIA x.


{Ed002's Note - Raheem Sterling (W) At the right price his sale will help the start of a rebuild. He will be available for perhaps £60-70M. Obviously if Arsenal were to sell Saka it would go part way toward signing him as a replacement.}

1.) 29 May 2021 21:10:00
Yeah right, keep saka. He’s untouchable, don’t think any arsenal suppprter would want that. Ed, how much you reckon saka is worth in today’s market?

{Ed002's Note - I am not the one to ask about such things but I suspect something like £41.875M.}

2.) 30 May 2021 11:41:22
Thanks Ed, have a good Sunday.



05 Oct 2020 09:34:37
Any chance of a breakdown of what could potentially happen today Ed02?

I know you said you wouldn’t be doing them anymore, but i know 99% of us would really appreciate it if you have time 😁.


{Ed002's Note - There are going to be a whole host of moves today. Chiesa, Grujic, Emerson, Rudiger, Depay, Clarke-Salter, Shaqiri, Telles, Bouna Sarr, Milik, Cuisance .... maybe Dembele, maybe Partey - but nothing involving Arsenal unless they loan one or two out.}

1.) 05 Oct 2020 12:00:39
Ed, could I trouble you to inquire who the clubs are that could move for Partey considering we will not have the money to meet his valuation?

{Ed002's Note - Pretty much anyone who is left needing a DM and has €50M in cash. But now it is very late and most of what will happen will be loans.}

2.) 05 Oct 2020 12:22:43
Cheers Ed.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 18:52:19
Sorry for the late appreciation Ed, been grafting since i posted this 😄.

{Ed002's Note - Grafting? Disgusting- make sure your web cam is turned off.}

4.) 05 Oct 2020 19:53:51
Always on Ed, no point of no one’s watching, plus there is some money to be made on Onlyfans 😉.

Game day Gooners, score predictions? i'm going for a strong response to the Anfield defeat with a 4-0 win.

Tierney, Ainsley MN Odegaard in, Pea, Lokongo and Tavares out.




26 Sep 2021 18:49:13
Great performance all over the pitch, Xhaka is in his usual redemption mood after his red card. Passing play in the first half was exceptional, which shown for all 3 goals. Didn’t need to step out of first gear in the second. Buzzing after watching that ??.




18 Aug 2021 18:39:56
Ramsdale nearly done £24m + £6m in addons. Not in squad vs West Brom



1.) 18 Aug 2021 19:10:12
I have to be honest, I am stunned Arsenal paid that much for him. Off course I don't support Arsenal and its obviously not my money but is he that good, where does that leave Leno and surely the money could have been spent somewhere else? Just my opinion mind, could easily be wrong like.

2.) 18 Aug 2021 19:52:02
Not sure Rover, definitely a decent keeper in there, but is he confident enough with his feet? Leno will still be no1 this season i think. Although paying that much for a no2 seems abit ridiculous to me. Your definitely right mate, were desperate for a RB and potentially a striker.

3.) 18 Aug 2021 19:52:41
Are you joking, this guy has some of the quickest reflexes I’ve seen for a long time and has made some phenomenal saves where he had no right to, plus uses his legs as well as his hands to block shots as well, he can be a little reckless at times but that will be eradicated with maturity

Happy with this signing if it comes off.

4.) 18 Aug 2021 20:14:04
We don’t need another shot stopper especially if we sort defence.

Need someone who commands his defence, owns the 6 yard box, can actually catch, good decision making and good playing from the back. Everything I think Leno is only OK at best.

If we want a shot stopper - Leno is number 1 and we should invest elsewhere and stop playing from the back

Please tell me he’s more than a shot stopper or that’s more money invested poorly this season.

Board is certainly backing Edu / Arteta - no where to hide for either of them now. They decided on White. To not buy Bissouma, to get Ode etc etc.

5.) 18 Aug 2021 20:15:26
If he improves us he's worth the money and if he doesn't he wasn't worth buying for £1.

Prices are irrelevant it's all about what a player does in your shirt, people said Lukaha wasn't worth the £80m United paid for him at the time while others declared Di Mari a bargin at £60m, let's Judge White and Ramsdale by what we see in an Arsenal shirt after 7 or 8 games.

6.) 18 Aug 2021 21:13:11
To me it seems a strange situation. If Arsenal aren't happy with Leno then the should have moved him on and used that and the circa £30 million on Ramsdale to get the very best they could or indeed hang their coat on Ramsdale and have him replace Leno. To have both seems like an expensive luxury. Just my take boys.

{Ed014's Note - you’ve no idea how strange the people who run Arsenal are mate, think of something ridiculous that won’t help the club at all and they’ll smash it out the park! 🤦‍♂️🤣🤣

7.) 19 Aug 2021 00:36:51
So true Rover - perhaps selling Emi for 20m last season compounds the cluster xxxx that we’ve done now. But then look at Willian, Saliba, Granit…. we aren’t run well or managed well. Common sense isn’t in our dictionary.



14 Aug 2021 09:22:07
Anyone find it real strange how Pea and Laca were both ill?

Could it be C.V.? Or maybe just an sickness, or could it potentially be a big fall out?

Arteta before and after the game quickly moved on from the questions regarding the two of them.


1.) 14 Aug 2021 09:55:06
Something not right if you ask me.

2.) 14 Aug 2021 10:09:05
It might well all be perfectly innocent but whether it is or isn't there is little automatic trust in any explanations Mikel offers!

Because of his track record of falling out with players coupled with the fact some of his past explanations of events have been very dubious at best, people will automatically think there is more to things than any version Mikel offers.



28 Jul 2021 12:00:04
Any info on Bruno Guimarães Ed?


{Ed002's Note - In terms of what?}

1.) 28 Jul 2021 12:32:28
Transfers, seen a few links today that he is next in line as Locatelli looks to be going to Juve.

{Ed002's Note - Are you sure they are not a couple of years old? Or is this Twitter?}

2.) 28 Jul 2021 12:57:26
Seen some on Twitter, and few online. I take it the interest has gone 😂 cheers mate.

{Ed002's Note - It was a couple of years ago. But he would be a good option.}

3.) 28 Jul 2021 13:10:55
Cheers Ed, seems a decent Xhaka replacement if he ends up going.

{Ed002's Note - Xhaka will certainly be gone soon but don't hold your breath about BG replacing him.}

4.) 28 Jul 2021 19:26:53
Thanks for the info Ed!

Early signs are good with Tavares. however his first and second touch need a lot of work, seems to be chasing the ball up the M1 most of the time.

I mean we play pretty much with 2 inside forwards all the time on the wings, out wingers barely put a ball into the box. It tends to be the overlapping full back that swings the cross in.

ESR is for me possibly our best player so far this season, I don’t care if he wants to play 10 as long as Mikel keeps getting a tune out of him on the left, that's all that matters.

Definitely Mal, think he’s one of the players that due to previous mistakes and actions people are blind for what he does. i'm not saying i'm a fan, but we looked a better side with him and Partey on the pitch.

Definitely needed a quality replacement for him in the summer gone.
