Ed002, what gossip have you got for us? Feel free to tell us things you wouldn't tell your shrink. But also some stuff about transfers and such.


{Ed002's Note - There is not much new - Tielemans and Melo are players the club are keen on, but ned to move players on.}



26 Jul 2022 13:32:23
Anyone here seen this Cody Gakpo kid play? Have any opinions on him?

Are we actually looking to bring him to the club?


{Ed002's Note - Cody Gakpo (LW/F) Versatile forward having his best season at PSV. Rejected the option to move to Bayern Munich last year as they would not give any guarantees of game time as he wants to be a starter. Leeds interest has moved on. Atalanta had an approach rejected. Has been watched by a number of Premier League sides, including Manchester City, Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool (who opted for Diaz) and Arsenal (who now have Martinelli doing well). Arsenal have been looking at more versatile players but their real need is for a Pepe replacement in the summer in addition to a Lacazette replacement - so they could yet look to him again - but would he start over Martinelli? Gakpo extended his contract in January and PSV together with their new coach want to keep him regardless of the interest. They will work hard to avoid a sale.}

1.) 26 Jul 2022 13:45:51
I’ve seen him play a few times spends most of the game on the floor rolling around.

2.) 26 Jul 2022 14:13:50
So he's a footballer then, VM?

Thanks for the info Ed002. I'm guessing Arsenal are no longer interested in a LW then? I'd always imagined Martinelli playing as a second striker. I think he'd score loads of goals.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal remain interested in Gakpo.}

3.) 26 Jul 2022 17:56:21
VM: I gather someone had told a funny joke and he couldn't control himself?



15 Jul 2021 17:59:07
Hoping these Tammy Abraham rumours aren't true. If he can't secure a spot as a forward at the current Chelsea, I'm not sure he's good enough. They haven't exactly got a prolific goal scorer.


{Ed002's Note - Tammy Abraham (S) Was asked to sign a contract extension but is being a bit of a prima donna and a bitch which the club won't tolerate so the club will let him leave in the summer. Potential option for Wolves and Aston Villa but both have preferred options. West Ham have a huge list of potential striker options and have repeatedly failed to resolve their issue - they may come in to play. Borussia Dortmund asked Chelsea about his availability but it seems unlikely even though they have missed out on their preferred option. Newcastle, Arsenal and Milan may provide a wildcard options but Milan has preferred targets. Is being offered around.}

1.) 16 Jul 2021 03:40:42
Rsharpe, as a Chelsea supporter I do think he’s been underused. He’s certainly not the finished article, but he does score goals (even if it takes 3-4 chances) he was our top scorer this year after a pretty decent last year and a great year in the championship.

2.) 16 Jul 2021 00:16:41
Reminds me a little of Welbeck. What do you think his level is Ed? Mid-table-ish?

{Ed002's Note - Ideal for Arsenal then.}

3.) 16 Jul 2021 11:44:41
Behave Ed we're currently joint top!



20 Dec 2018 22:38:51
I'm not trying to put a downer on things but after 17 games:

2018/19 - 34 points
2017/18 - 30 ponts
2016/17 - 34 points
2015/16 - 37 points

We're there or therabouts where we've been for the previous 4 seasons. No better and no worse really.


1.) 21 Dec 2018 04:23:06
At least we are on an upward trend from last year.

2.) 21 Dec 2018 09:30:16
I'm not sure that's how trends work Steve 😂

At this point, I'm not saying change wasn't needed. I'm not denying the fact that some players appear to be putting in a slightly harder shift. I'm simply saying that the change in manager hasn't yet changed our points tally, which is what matters at the end of a season.

3.) 21 Dec 2018 09:50:49
We have stopped the downward trend that's for sure
What would it be this season without change 28?

This is the toughest premier league top 4 battle I can ever remember, long gone are the days where United Chelsea Arsenal were sinply formalities and the only question was who would join them.
Our problem was we became subconsciously top 4 content and happy as we were which allowed others to catch then overtake and leave us behind.

4.) 21 Dec 2018 16:54:49
i don't think as fans we were subconsiouly content with top 4, medeocraty has been drummed in to us! its only the last couple years where we would really appreciate a top 4 finish as an achievement. Before that we always thought we had a chance of winning at the start of the season. it was only a few seasons ago we were having debates about whether we could win the league with giroud as our main striker, not just make top 4, top 4 was a given and since we've had sanchez and now lacca and auba all much better strikers in a goal scoring sence, but ironically our teams and points gained have declined.

5.) 21 Dec 2018 18:09:08
Eden, we are scoring as many as Liverpool but letting in as many as the teams in the relegation zone. Tells you where we are struggling.

6.) 21 Dec 2018 18:35:58
Scrapping the bottom of the barrel there g62 by referring to that as a "trend". The reality is we're a couple of games better AND worse off than we have been in the previous 3 seasons.

I concede that we need 2 or 3 seasons to evaluate how much better off we are under current management. I'm not rushing to judgement either way, because on the face of things, we're exactly where we have been (on average) .

7.) 21 Dec 2018 19:44:24
What is a trend Sharpie?
A pattern on a grath that is either consistently stagnant upward or downward.
It's way to early for Arsenal under Dick to establish any sort of real trend of its own.
But the figure you provided from before Dick arrived unquestionably show a year on year downward trend.
37 34 30 speaks for itself, we were going nowhere at best and backwards at worst
Let's look again in May because then we can make a better comparison between Dicks first full season and Arsenes 20th 21st and 22nd seasons.

8.) 21 Dec 2018 20:09:06
You've answered your own question mate: "It's way to early for Arsenal under Dick to establish any sort of real trend of its own. " So while I am fully aware of what a trend is, I wouldn't be calling that a trend.

I wasn't the one that brought trend into the conversation. I am simply stating that we are no better or no worse off than we have been in the previous 3 seasons.

I see people on this site, prior to our last 2 defeats, lauding Emery for bringing the best out of the players. After the aforementioned two defeats it's all, "it's because he's having to play Wenger's dregs". I'm just adding a little perspective.

9.) 21 Dec 2018 21:01:00
And it's very fair prospective too mate but it's almost impossible to compare 4 months work next to 22 years fairly, I've always said in 3 years we will all know own if Dick is capable of getting us back to where we would like to be.
It's only his fantastically positive start that has sent pulses racing and excitement levels through the roof again.

10.) 22 Dec 2018 17:30:53
Well he isn't working with George Grahams dreggs. He has been in the job 4 month and you can't compare it to someone who had built his team for years and couldn't in the end muster a performance against top four teams, arguably Dick is doing that after 4 months, with wengers dreggs.

11.) 23 Dec 2018 04:27:21
Steve, be pedantic if you must mate, but don't expect any rational person to buy the drivel you're selling.

When it suits, "Emery is getting the best out of the players. He's amazing""

Lose a couple of games and it's back to, "Oh, it's because he's playing with Wenger's dregs. "

Maybe it's just me, but I find this highly hypocritical and disrespectful of a manager that served our club for over two decades. At some point even you have to stop blaming him for the performances of this team.

12.) 23 Dec 2018 14:55:37
Some sing we've got our Arsenal back
While others feel their Arsenal stopped existing last May.

We have always been Arsenal football club but for a while there we seemed to morth into Arsene football club and there were quite a lot of people who liked it that way and are now struggling to identify with an Arsenal that doesn't involve Arsene as their club anymore.
just as some people lost all interest in Arsenal and football completely because of Arsene remaining in charge some have and will drift away because he's no longer on charge.
Some wounds take time to fully heal and although the Arsene in out war is over its going to take time for grudges to be forgotten both ways.

13.) 23 Dec 2018 17:08:12
Sharpe, i'm not hypocritical or disrespectful, i say it as i see it. Dick is working with and trying too correct the obvious wrongs that every man and his dog could see was wrong with the players and the way we played under wenger, that's pretty much fact. Until we get rid of the wenger lagacy we won't see the full Unai Emery team. It still has wenger influences in it good and bad.

14.) 23 Dec 2018 18:15:11
Also Sharpe, i'm not sure i'm selling anything, just having an opinion. Some may disagree with me and that's fine. No that's life.



11 Aug 2015 09:26:32
This doesn't look good for our Benz push. Not entirely sure who This Jeinny lass is except what it says on her twitter profile:


{Ed001's Note - was there something other than pictures to see there???? Damn was I meant to read something?}

1.) 11 Aug 2015 12:22:23
I just can't see it happening. Benzema is at Real Madrid who have a high chance of La Liga title and no doubt minimum of a semi final in the Champions League. He also has his France spot to hold down and playing at Real Madrid he will get his chance even though people chirp up that Rafa will play Bale or Ronaldo as the out and out striker leaving Benzema out, can't see that if Benzema plays and plays well he`ll keep his spot surely? Now if he decides to sign for Arsenal his situation changes he now has to adapt to the EPL and all the pressure to perform instantly to win over the Gooners and to hold down a France strikers spot for Euros2016. Of the two choices staying at Real looks more comfortably but hey what do I may talk but can anyone see Wenger lumping it on Benzema or another top top striker like Lewandowski, Higuain or Llorente? Arsene pays what he feels the price the player is worth and i'm sorry todays market is still on the rise for quality. Keep the faith Gooners we could still have Lord Bedtner or Sanogo within the squad. COYG

2.) 11 Aug 2015 12:26:06
LOL Ed001 - Okay, I'll admit I spent a bit of the afternoon looking at "pictures" ... but then the wife came home and I was forced to read ....

{Ed001's Note - I never even noticed the writing.}

3.) 11 Aug 2015 12:33:07
Sooo I did not get to the reading part on her Twitter , fantastic photos but...

4.) 11 Aug 2015 14:53:04
I'm in love

5.) 11 Aug 2015 14:34:51
Ed001 ... didn't you JUST get married? tut tut

{Ed001's Note - not yet mate, just got engaged, so it is ok. Well so long as the missus never finds out anyway ;o)

6.) 11 Aug 2015 16:23:12
Ed001, I'm sure Ed002 will tell her. Women tend to stick together when it comes to wandering eyes. Anywho ... never really expected this post to become a Jeinny lovefest. It was honestly posted for the editorial.

Think I'll go have another "read" now ... you know, just in case I missed anything on the first go.

{Ed001's Note - luckily Ed002 is away on holibobs at the moment....}

7.) 11 Aug 2015 17:31:21
They all look like that after 12 pints but a word of warning don't do a sleep over. One way by night and completely and totally unrecognisable way by day.

8.) 11 Aug 2015 23:20:19
i love how twitter works and all these closet ITK;s who come out with their deadline ultimatums and unlimited medicals.

i do use twitter but for the sake of sanity mostly for banter and less for transfer.

but i did see some italian journalist tweet being retweetd.

not a direct quote but something like this.

tweet 1 : benzema to sign on sunday or monday

tweet 2 : benzema in london for medical

tweet 3 : benzema deal agreed ( one week after he was to sign)

tweet 4 : been told that man city and bayern want benzema

tweet 5 : benzema wants arsenal and will have talks with guardiola and wenger

tweet 6 : wenger has spoken to benzema and its up to arsenal to pay

well you get the drift.

what i'm wondering is how does he know soo quickly what wenger and benzema discussed? does wenger tweet secretly?

maybe wengers handle is notarsenewenger? and benzema is notbenzema?

its just a shame to see soo many headless chickens being directed to the slaughter house.

Forest seem to be doing a lot of business. Latest is Lyon’s Houssem Aouar rumoured to be on their shopping list.


1.) 15 Aug 2022 12:30:52
Does anyone know what happened to his reputation? He seemed really highly rated just a couple of years ago, had a lot of clubs after him, now he's just got a year left so should be cheap, still only 24, yet doesn't seem to be many in for him.

{Ed014's Note - I remember reading that he went off the boil after his move to us didn’t materialise but that was obvs a while ago.

Having really seen any reports raving about him since.



13 Aug 2022 17:05:43
What a great game! And not just because we won. So many positive things to say. Great passing, great pressing, great team performance with quite a few standouts.

Jesus, well, it's early days, but I might be wrong about him. Maybe he is a 20+ goal a season striker.

Martinelli, this kid is fire! And you can tell he just loves football. He's fun to watch. My favourite player right now.

Xhaka! Where did he come from? He was good. He was really good! I want this Xhaka showing up every week.


{Ed014's Note - anyone for Tielemens? ?‍♂️???

1.) 13 Aug 2022 17:32:38
Great stuff today
Agree with Sharpy Martinell looks like he is having the time of his life.
Jesus Wow,

2.) 13 Aug 2022 17:53:45
He's not for me on that showing, 14.

{Ed014's Note - don’t tell a few of the guys that mate, they’ll kick off!

3.) 13 Aug 2022 18:45:14
Don’t need him we Xhaka

The most improved player imo.

{Ed014's Note - agree mate, he’s really impressed me.

4.) 13 Aug 2022 19:02:41
Ed that has to be down to Mikel.

{Ed014's Note - no argument from me mate, I’ve been very impressed in everything so far this season.

5.) 13 Aug 2022 19:28:42
9/ 10 today, another win by a 2 goal margin, another 3pts on the board, 6pts out of a possible 6pts for the season, but sadly no clean sheet today.

6.) 13 Aug 2022 19:30:57
Not a great Xhaxa fan but impressed this season, have to agree with Mal.
As for Tielemens it's a no from me.

7.) 13 Aug 2022 21:49:52
What was really impressive was both times as they got back into it going and scoring again, not letting them build any momentum, previously we would of folded straight away.

{Ed014's Note - agree eden, let’s keep this momentum, we started in pre season, going!



13 Aug 2022 14:03:11
Predictions for the afternoon, ladies and gentlemen?

I'm going with 2-1.


1.) 13 Aug 2022 14:33:12
3-1 mate.

2.) 13 Aug 2022 17:16:35
I'm going with 4-2.

{Ed014's Note - me too mate, I think Jesus will get a couple too!

3.) 14 Aug 2022 08:28:28
And martinelli plus maybe xhaka lol but was a good win.



08 Aug 2022 17:32:29
Is it just me or does anyone else feel bad that Gooner123 goes to a dead site to wind up; well nobody really.

That place is nearly as empty as their. you know where I'm going with this.


{Ed014's Note - it’s no wonder he calls himself wodbod on there!

1.) 08 Aug 2022 17:52:57
He’s a weirdo lads

At least being a property developer will occupy some of his time.

2.) 08 Aug 2022 19:21:41
To be fair, Mal, the lad seems harmless. He just doesn't know how to banter very well and takes everything too seriously. At the end of the day, he's an Arsenal weirdo!

3.) 08 Aug 2022 20:36:10
Bit like Mal ?.

{Ed014's Note - very good point well made! ?

4.) 09 Aug 2022 01:04:31
For a sec I thought Mal has a different account ???.

Wow lads calm down, no need for this at all.

8.) 10 Aug 2022 22:32:51
123 you've got to admit it is a bit of a weird mentality to want to spend your life laughing at your neighbours for only having free view TV rather spending your time watching all the quality choice of viewing on your own telly.

10.) 11 Aug 2022 06:35:12
Oxfordshire that isn’t just humour coming from Malaga unfortunately.

11.) 11 Aug 2022 06:36:13
It’s banter on the spurs site 62, I’m the only one keeping it alive.

And they were right in the queue next to you raver with your copy of your Great Great Grandad`s Super 8 cine film in black and white asking if they can transfer to a CD as a momento of when the trophyless last won the league! God loves a trier VTH.
