Hi Ed please tell me Arsenal are not looking to buy or loan Diego Costa! Couldn`t find in a search Thanks in Advance COYG.

{Ed002's Note - He is now a free agent but I am not aware of any approach from Arsenal at this time.}

1.) 17 Jan 2022 12:48:38
Hey Edoo2, does juventus have an interest in signing Thomas Partey?

{Ed002's Note - Juventus have a number of DM targets but know that their preferred choice is likely heading elsewhere and others are not looking likely, but I am not aware of any approach for Thomas Partey.}

2.) 17 Jan 2022 13:41:14
Ed sorry to bother you, but has anything changed with Arthur melo?

{Ed002's Note - No, Arsenal still want a loan.}

3.) 17 Jan 2022 13:44:07
Ok cheers, have a nice week.



07 Jan 2022 09:38:15
Hi Ed002 firstly Happy New Year and thanks for the excellent information. Quick question are we interested in buying Tariq Lamptey of Brighton? Did a search but couldn`t find an answer. TIA COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Tariq Lamptey (RB) Brighton do not want to sell Lamptey and whilst Chelsea do not have a buy back option they do have a reasonbly significant sell on clause. Several sides, including Bayern Munich and Spurs (who opted for Emerson Royal instead), who have approached Brighton over recent months have been told he is not for sale.}

1.) 07 Jan 2022 16:30:52
Thanks Ed.



19 Jul 2021 14:58:24
Hi Ed a while ago you mentioned Guido Rodriguez could be available at £25 - £30 mill . In the last month have Arsenal expressed any interest in him? Thanks in advance COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, nothing has changed, Guido Rodriguez (DM) If someone comes up with €75M he will be sold. There is no interest at that price but Arsenal have watched the playerbut without several departures do not need another DM player. It seems very unlikely the player would want the move after only being in Spain since January last year although Real Betis would be open to a sale. A reasonable fee might be €20M-€25M - but that may not be enough for them. He remains a potential option.}

1.) 19 Jul 2021 15:52:29
Thanks Ed.



17 Jul 2021 17:38:08
Medical on 26th July for Ben White! Heard a rumour during Euros that he was going to Vegas with Jack Grealish! What could go wrong lol COYG.

1.) 17 Jul 2021 19:39:22
Johnny will look after them 🖒😎.



01 Jul 2021 09:09:04
Hi Ed I know it was only a week ago you gave info on Locatelli but since then it seems we have lodged an "important bid " according to Sassuolo. Do you know if the bid is close to their asking price and is the player interested in joining us? Thanks in advance COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Manuel Locatelli (DM) Juventus have tried and failed on a number tried to take him from Milan and now Sassuolo without luck with the player saying he wants the move but cannot see how he will get a game in Turin and that is the only issue to resolve. Real Madrid have him on their list of optional targets to Camavinga. Milan would like him back whilst his agent has said Sevilla, Chelsea and Manchester CIty provide options but not as first choice. Arsenal have made an approach to Sassuolo through a third party.}

1.) 01 Jul 2021 10:09:47
We're only 'ahead in the race' so to speak because we're the only team to make a formal offer.

"There is interest from Juventus, we haven't explored all the terms and evaluations but we have an excellent relationship with Juventus so we will continue these talks. It's true that other clubs from abroad are interested, Arsenal are one of these and they are ahead of everyone else because they tabled the only concrete offer we have received so far".

Personally I can't see this going anywhere for us but of course it would be great if did happen. I dread to think what our 'concrete offer' is but no doubt it's nowhere near the asking price.

2.) 01 Jul 2021 11:36:20
HaHa Glenn or an offer nowhere near the asking price plus a pound! I read he wasn`t nailed on for Juve as couldn`t see where he could get a game. Whereas he would for us I guess. Remains to be seen but I`m interested to see if we still are taking the p8ss with low offers ( some would argue prudent in current times ) or have we identified definite targets and gone Boom and offered at least close to the asking price and stop embarrassing us on the world and domestic stage. I`ve long stopped worrying about transfer fees and wages etc and let others worry about it - we`ve all got enough on our plates without worrying about that! Used the word worry too many times! No worries COYG.

3.) 01 Jul 2021 13:22:04
You're not wrong there Sussex mate. My only concern is selling players for the right price, or for any price for that matter. None of the sales are near completion yet with the closes probably being Xhaka to Roma. We really need to offload and we seem to be struggling.

I am pleased with the sort of players that we are being linked with which is awesome but if we don't manage to offload a large portion of players we'll just be overcrowded again.

We seem to be doing business relatively quietly so I'm going to sit back and keep everything crossed that move players on for a good cumulative figure.

Agony watching the game and the clock last night. Excellent defending and could have nicked it with Saka`s chance. Fair result though and who would have taken 0-0 at the start let alone after 25 minutes. Hopefully that`s Ramsdale`s poor game out the way and is it me or does Tierney give his winger / wing back way too much room? ( Defenders Union ) Every chance of a final and just hope ESR Saka Tomyasi and Oedegaard ready for Sunday. Lots of well deserved Gabriel praise - not so much for Ben White - so I`m mentioning his great game and confirming he`s a good buy and going to get better. Him Gabriel and Saliba next season - Saliba will be like the proverbial new signing! Well played lads COYG.

1.) 14 Jan 2022 17:07:44
You’re on Tierney Sussex he’s been a little off. The foul he gave away against Cancelo leading to the goal was unlike him.

He left Xhaka exposed last night wasn’t bombing back and left too much to Trent, but he too wasn’t having a good game.

2.) 14 Jan 2022 17:55:35
Yard he’s still one of our top three players He’s the pro and I trust him and form is temporary and class is permanent and he is class. I’m just being too picky and compared to him arteta and Steve Clarke I know feck all! He will return to form and the NLD is a good a place as anywhere to do it COYG.



21 Dec 2021 16:41:48
Hoping Charlie Patino gets a run out tonight, lots of noise about how good he is COYG.

1.) 21 Dec 2021 17:32:12
Hello Sussex mate.
Hope him and maybe a couple more will get a chance ???.

2.) 21 Dec 2021 17:42:53
Sussex I hope he puts out a stronger side

No messing around, get the job done early.

3.) 21 Dec 2021 17:15:42
Him and Balogun Sussex ?.

4.) 21 Dec 2021 18:03:30
Yes, let's make sure of a win.

5.) 21 Dec 2021 18:08:38
Fair play Malaga on reflection maybe you`re right - let's bring him on at 4-0 :) COYG.

6.) 21 Dec 2021 18:33:11
Lokongo and Mari will not be playing
Tested positive for CV.

{Ed014's Note - didn’t see Auba in any of the training photos for tonight’s game either.

Hopefully he’s sorted a move for day 1 of the window!

7.) 21 Dec 2021 18:46:47

{Ed014's Note - I’ve got everything crossed Bill ??

8.) 21 Dec 2021 19:29:08
I heard it nowhere that Arsenal and Dortmound are in talks over Auba rejoining them and Haaland joing us .

Apparently Arsenal are prepared to accept a straight player swap and not insist on paying Dortmound £50 trillion sweetener to make the deal happen.

{Ed014's Note - I really can’t wait to see Haaland play…..for Real Madrid ??

9.) 21 Dec 2021 19:42:48
You never know Ed014 mate,

They said Aldershot would never win champions league.

{Ed014's Note - now that is a good point well made and I remember that day like it was never! ?



07 Dec 2021 10:04:36
PEA - not interested / lazy, Laca Nketiah just not good enough! Partey and Xhaka just not good enough! Saka ESR good enough but starting to get niggles and looking knackered ( Saka was kicked from pillar to post last night ) . probably bad backs from carrying us. This is our midfield and attack not good enough / over used / couldn`t give a fishes tit. If Partey is worth £45 mill I`m the next King of England! ( Saul also struggling makes me think Simeone gets his players at it ) Now sick of being Barcelona lite then Man City lite. Think I lost all faith when Nketiah came on - might try in training but again nowhere near good enough, not good enough for Bielsa in Championship! There is no plan but with a poor midfield and attack what can you do? I`ve been an advocate of give him to Christmas but like when I saw Arsene not fire up his team v Swansea a few seasons ago it`s time to go with no discernible improvement The problem with that is to replace with who? Unless we write this season off and get someone in the Summer who knows - it`s a mess but if you can`t motivate a team times up! Odegaard did okay last night and fair play to Xhaka who played 90 mins while others cramped and looked knackered when coming back from a serious injury ridiculous to keep him on. One last point aren`t we supposed to look fresh this season with no Europe - we always look so sluggish . COYG Finally MA out lost players, no plan and not getting best out of our squad. Lots leaving soon but lost any confidence MA is manager to spend the money.

1.) 07 Dec 2021 10:27:49
Xhaka played ok but if he never got that stupid booking like he always does he could of stopped grey instead of ducking the tackle.

2.) 07 Dec 2021 10:27:59
With the score at 0-1 and looking like we were losing control of it despite greater possession of the ball and playing silly time wasting tactics. MA once again showed his inexperience and naivety by not making a change of dropping in another midfielder. The sensible thing would have been to pull Shaka who was being kicked from pillar to post, but he let the nonsense continued.

I don’t think he has control and it seems they’re not coached well. Best he give it up and realistically if he doesn’t the club must find away for PEA to go and the others who are not interested.

{Ed014's Note - Once we’ve been spanked by Southampton, West Ham and Leeds they’ll have no choice but to offload the clown.



26 Nov 2021 18:51:56
Tierney at left back tomorrow please COYG.

1.) 26 Nov 2021 19:44:27
Hope so and I think the left back has given Arteta a good reason to drop him because up to then, it was his jersey to lose.

2.) 26 Nov 2021 20:14:11
I'm a big Tierney fan since he won me over last season and I'm not against him coming back for tomorrow's game but equally i'm not sure one bad game should cost a player his place especially when it's in a poor team performance, it's a tricky one for me this one.

3.) 26 Nov 2021 20:53:06
Yes he had a mare last time so perhaps keep him against Newcastle to give him a second chance. He did well apart from that one game.

4.) 26 Nov 2021 21:20:02
I agree Sally Tierney is definitely number 1 but dropping a young player who's done really well after 1 bad performance could be damaging long term, let him get the Liverpool experience out of his head tomorrow then bring back Tierney at United in my opinion.

5.) 26 Nov 2021 21:37:17
So how do you justify dropping him if he has a great game against Newcastle. That makes less sense surely.

6.) 26 Nov 2021 22:12:37
I see your point SY but for me it's like learning to ride a bike and falling off for the first time, it's better to take a break on a high.
If one bad game warrants being automatically dropped then Auba has enough being left out in hand to retire last March ?.

7.) 26 Nov 2021 23:46:30
He was always number two and therefore 1 slip up before CT takes his spot and he had a really poor game. You can’t have a “earn your jersey” mentality and not live by it. PEA should be dropped but we don’t really have any options as Martinelli, Eddie or Balogun probably aren’t snapping at his heels
At some point PEA needs to be under pressure.

8.) 27 Nov 2021 08:49:09
We all have opinions SY and all managers have different styles, some would as you say have one bad game and your out for all mentality, others would have different rules for different players (worst mangers in my opinion) and others would look at the lads overall contribution so far and have a decision to make.

Personally I don't think anyone is too big to be dropped or anyone to small to show understanding towards.



27 Sep 2021 10:20:06
We never were a team ready to fight relegation . I think most of us would agree yesterday was our strongest team ( maybe be Xhaka / Lokonga) but in our first three games we were missing 7, 6, and 5 of that team. What were we expecting? We still aren`t a top 4 team but we are going to be hard to beat and i think the attitude is all important coupled with the undoubted talent in the team. Our bench was also strong Laca Martinelli Pepe who could affect the game if behind. Imagine Saliba also challenging for centre back next season. As much as he frustrates i think we need Xhaka as only him and Auba with experience, we need a balance. Going to be a rollercoaster still as a very young team but we will win more than we lose. It`s tricky but if we remain behind the boys - especially after the next inevitable loss- then let`s see where it takes us. As someone said small green shoots . Loving the defence though who look as though they want to defend for once Sokratis would be proud COYG.

1.) 27 Sep 2021 18:07:47
Great Post Sussex.
Got to mention Tomiyasu who is a beast of a player.

2.) 28 Sep 2021 12:34:53
He is Bill and I meant to include Partey as one of the more experienced players, thought he was good on Sunday and yet to see his best. I`m still day dreaming of Bissouma in January and Saliba for next season young and quality. If Xhaka injured be interesting to see Lokonga with a run in the team. Just one last thing I`m sticking up for Ben White - forget the price tag not his fault - he will come good already improving and he can pass which seems important to the way MA wants us to play going forwards COYG.

3.) 28 Sep 2021 14:14:50
Ben White to me is 50 mill well spent. Made a couple of mistakes in his first few games, but if he is lucky with injures we are going to get a lot of mileage out of him.

Hi Ed002 with Odegaard and Ramsdale ( assuming he comes) do we need to sell to cover these transfers or if we manage to sell can we look to a RB or a real treat like Bissouma? Thanks for all your info by the way COYG.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal need to sell players to get money coming in.}

Ultimately a lot of these players are not wanted by a team who finished 8th and on big money. Difficult to shift leaving lots still with us on big contracts and not playing I fear. COYG.

I read it again and I think it was wishful thinking on my part. I guess he is on Lazio`s radar not ours. Thanks again for info COYG.
