Ed, it's looking like we are pushing for Tammy Abraham for a loan / loan to buy agreement. Popping up on a few news stories. Is there any truth to this and you were less than complementary about his attitude but not sure outside of him throwing his toys out of his prom. is he a quality striker that would improve our front line and we just need to manage his ego? Is he worth that effort and are we genuinely looking at him. thanks.


{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.}

Thanks Ed. You clearly don’t like him as a professional but what about as a player on the pitch? I’m thinking Anelka was also a problem off the pitch especially with his brother blowing smoke up his ass. But I’d take another Anelka all day as he was special….

2.) 21 Jul 2021 13:37:23
Have Arsenal not had enough of signing players Chelsea deem to be surplus to requirements?

{Ed014's Note - I really hope so as TA is nowhere near good enough and can’t we just give them Willian back as defective goods!

3.) 21 Jul 2021 15:57:16
Would be an absolute ridiculous signing if it happens. I see nothing in Abraham to suggest he is good enough for any top 10 Premier League team.

4.) 22 Jul 2021 03:24:51
I'm surprised Villa aren't after him. Played for them before, fits their style, good backup for Watkins. If we sign him and drop Balogun and Gabi I will be fuming.

5.) 22 Jul 2021 01:55:55
ED, maybe you can educate me a little on why in your opinion Arsenal are supposedly linked with Ramsdale for more money than what we sold Martinez for. Kante has won 2 consecutive league titles with 2 clubs. Ramsdale has done the opposite and been relegated consecutively with 2 clubs. I’m so confused.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea which Ed you expect to reply. There is no link between Ramsdale and Martinez and I don't understand the comment about Kante.}

6.) 22 Jul 2021 10:04:40
Tammy is better than Watkins. Doesn't always look the most gracious, but he simply scores goals. You don't often find his combination of mobility, technique and build. He's hard for defenders to play against.

Kid is our (Chelsea's) top PL scorer over the past 2 seasons for a reason. If he plays he'll get goals. You guys would be lucky to have him. I'll be sad to see him go, but I like him and he deserves to move somewhere where he'll play.

7.) 22 Jul 2021 12:24:46
Thanks for your comments Jackson, really nice to read.

I will be happy if Tammy comes to us. We have lacked a really tall guy in our box since Giroud crossed the divide :) and he's a giant!

Good luck for the coming season :)

8.) 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.}

9.) 22 Jul 2021 14:16:01
Sorry, didn’t mean ask in form of a Riddle. I’m basically asking what your opinion is on Ramsdale as I think he’s pony and don’t understand the price tag linked with him. He was awful for Bournemouth and they got relegated. Same when he went to Sheffield. Confidence is built from the back and I strongly believe Shef huge dip in form was not having Henderson between the posts but instead having Ramsdale. He’s stats are awful. Villa’s season for example I bet wld have been a lot different if they had him in goal instead of Martinez.

{Ed002's Note - It is where the club have ended up after others have fallen away. Mat Ryan was not happy and opted out. Andre Onana looked a good choice but he has better options now. Kia wants Neto still.}

10.) 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.}



19 Jul 2021 21:03:37
Hi Ed, is it true we have agreed terms with James Maddison? Why do clubs agree stuff with the player without agreement from the club? Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - I don’t know, sorry.}

1.) 19 Jul 2021 21:18:38
Ok - thanks Ed.

2.) 19 Jul 2021 21:48:59
Would love seeing arsenal get Maddison but i really doubt it'll happen. I think its just silly paper talk. Where has this money come from if we actually are getting Maddison? i'm sure I've read everywhere Arsenal can't afford big signings.

3.) 20 Jul 2021 02:06:46
Jaybo84 if we can’t afford big signings how have we got Ben white? For 50m and CM LB we so far spent around 75m so them who say we can’t afford to spend a lot how come we just got white for 50m.

4.) 20 Jul 2021 08:01:40
Mate read what i wrote. You've basically asked me the same question i just asked.

5.) 20 Jul 2021 09:50:05
I read that Stan has given Mikel a war chest with the proviso he has to buy under 25 year old players whose value will hopefully increase over time.
If true it seems to be working :)

6.) 20 Jul 2021 09:56:30
Hope this is true sally

Don’t want Maddison, he’s not that good.

7.) 20 Jul 2021 10:31:49
He is most definitely good enough. The issue is that he struggles to keep fit and that's certainly what we don't want, especially for a player with a fee of his size.

8.) 20 Jul 2021 12:42:35
Depends on fee and more importantly who we don`t buy if we spend big on him. Don`t sweat the fees and wages they`re ridiculous! He is good enough and could be a very good signing great on deadball situations too. Think he fell out over C.V. breach and dropped for fa cup final so wants away maybe. Prem ready and much prefer to MO ( yes SirWenger I realised it was Oedegaard not ozil just obviously a poor joke ) . Keep feeling relieved MO staying at Madrid, get Aouar and or Maddison! Liking the Aarons rumours rubber stamped by ED002 saying we are interested! Exciting times COYG.

9.) 21 Jul 2021 22:25:56
002 settled this ages ago, kroenke got his hands in his pockets, pay upfront make it back on the sales, o something along them lines, zing zing.



29 Jun 2021 22:59:10
Copy paste alert - some great news --

"It's not signed yet, but before Emile went on holiday this summer he had a verbal agreement ready with Arsenal, this is what I know. He's coming back from his holidays and to meet with Arsenal, complete some details and then sign the contract with Arsenal. From Smith Rowe's side he wants to stay at Arsenal, many times he's said he's living his dream with Arsenal, he wants to stay and Arsenal are so happy with him, so if someone wants to break the verbal agreement with Arsenal, they need to break the bank, "





07 Jun 2021 14:25:24
Ed, hope you are well. I'm reading that we may try to exchange Bellerin for Ramsey.
Any truth in this?
Scary due to Ramsey's current 400k per week wage as well as his injury history.



{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of it, sorry.}

1.) 07 Jun 2021 16:22:01
We should be looking to go forward into a new era not backwards.

2.) 07 Jun 2021 17:39:10
Agreed D16 and it wouldn’t be a two steps back to then facilitate 5 steps forward.



16 Jan 2021 11:07:00
Goodbye and good luck at Fenerbahce Ozil. Nice that your last touch for us was an assist.

Ed, we would have paid him 7.5m in wages and not sure if he's causing any issues. Selling him still raises questions about our creativity etc etc.

Do we gain financially by letting him go?

Still think we need a proper number 10 while ESR develops.


{Ed002's Note - Arsenal will gain financially because with the player moving on the final cost of his departure is far less than the wages the club would have paid.}

1.) 16 Jan 2021 13:15:05
We'll save money on Ozil's wages and then offer Laca a new 4 year deal in the summer on mega money. You can just see it happening 😂.

2.) 16 Jan 2021 14:28:02
Thanks Ed - that’s a plus.

3.) 16 Jan 2021 15:06:54
Ed, is now the problem going to be the wages being spent on Willian and Aubameyang?

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand the question.}

4.) 16 Jan 2021 15:55:12
No worries Ed lool.

5.) 16 Jan 2021 15:55:12

01 Aug 2021 20:21:58
So we still have Leno ( what was he doing today especially for the chance that Ben blocked ) . Still have Bellerin, Xhska, Elneny, AMN, Willock, PEA looks no different, Willian. Is it a case of Same old Arsenal always dreaming

We sign a LB who is cover, a young CM who probably won't get a game if Granit and Partey are fit but we spanked 50m on a player which was a nice to have.

Sounds like a typical Arsenal window.

Next we will sign Ode just to top it off

FFS Boss - it's August, sort your 💩 out. You should have been planning ages ago - I had high hopes for this season but I'm really not looking forward to it. I don't want any harm done to the club but I do want changes. Granit new contract is a joke.



1.) 01 Aug 2021 21:14:56
My current thinking is to use a motor racing analogy, you can tweak the car all you want and make it as aerodynamic as possible and modify the traction all you want but if the driver can't get the best out of it then the end result won't change much.

It's preseason so results mean nothing but the same old things that cost us last season still look very much part of the plan moving forward.

2.) 01 Aug 2021 23:53:45
our boss needs stabilisers and doesn’t have the experience to know when to take a pit stop nor any other mid game decision.

Think next season will be an endurance race for the fans.



28 Jul 2021 20:58:41
Ok - so this is a dangerous statement.

In my opinion I believe the political taking of the knee by every club every game in a political statement and that's it. I'd rather they actually did something rather than a shallow knee while racism is going on all around them.

Then I read this and praise the club for the stand it takes is removing assets from the business as their behaviour was inappropriate. That's positive action 👏 👏 👏

Well done

A club statement read: "Portsmouth Football Club can confirm that the investigation - and subsequent disciplinary process - into discriminatory messages that originated from an academy U18 private group chat has now concluded.

"We can confirm that a decision has been made today (July 28) to release three players from the academy. These players do have the right to appeal the club's decision.

Stamp this out of our game by action and show how important it is to you even if it's not the Immediate best thing for the club

Revs - do the same with diving, cheating, swearing. straight red. They won't give you grief. How I hated seeing John Terry berating refs, shouting aggressively from a foot away all to win a throw in. Don't moan - act.

Well done Portsmouth.

Come on refs - you have the power and I don't care if you send off Laca for diving if you do it for all. I'd love my honest tough competitive game back where a player doesn't get booked for celebrating after scoring a historic goal for your country in the last minute of extra time. I'd book him for keeping his shirt on. Football has so much so wrong.

I'm on a rant today - sorry.


1.) 28 Jul 2021 22:07:20
Why is it political, I don't understand that statement.

If the players feel it's important to them to show thier support for the issues that lead to the taking of the knee in the first place why is that a problem?

2.) 28 Jul 2021 22:50:35
It just feels part of the protocol like managers shaking hands. It’s done and doesn’t change how players act during the game. Feel Colin Kaepernick had a bigger statement or Portsmouth actions spoke far louder than a “forced” kneeling.
Do it after a goal. Walk off the pitch if racism happens.

I’m an action guy and this just feel like a tick box hence I was highlighting Portsmouth.

3.) 28 Jul 2021 23:18:12
Personally mate I think the Euros showed how much of a gesture it was, some people who booed the England team before the torment for taking a knee finally got the message after what followed Saka Rashford and Sancho missing their penalties.

4.) 29 Jul 2021 00:07:13
That’s a good point and if this tick box leads to awareness and affirmative action and most important - results then great.

Are they going to take the knee all this season and next?

I’d argue it actually took the abuse to get action snd awareness - the knee was irrelevant. The knee achieved nothing - the social I acceptance of racial abuse and that it was 100% targeted at 3 young men of colour was key. Players we had applauded for skill, delivery on and off the pitch were targeted not because of terrible penalties which except Rashfords, they were but rather targeting their race. We know Pearce, Waddle, Southgate, Batty etc were given a lot of stock for their misses but not due to race.

5.) 29 Jul 2021 09:32:57
Personally I think the England players sticking to thier beliefs when it would have been so much easier just to conform and given in to those who opposed their actions was a huge success, I thought it was brilliant when the Danish team applauded England players before the semi final and even fantastic when the Italian players joined the England players in taking a knee before the final itself, I wonder how many other players of other countries wished they to had shown support during the tournament once the final whistle went and the vile abuse of 3 young players began and still continues to happen.

Will they be taking a knee all next season?

Do you think they're will be more keyboard abuses, more people disrespected and abused for no reason other than the colour of thier skin both on line and in person?

Do you think everyone will evolve the ability to question themselves and ask why do I think, feel behave this way? Rather than simply continue to be conditioned by others words and propaganda before next season kicks off?

Sadly I think we might be a few seasons away before everyone develops the ability to think rationally and calmly more importantly actually think for themselves rather than how they've been taught to think by others.

6.) 29 Jul 2021 10:18:32
Sorry that should have read ( even more fantastic when the Italian players joined the England players in taking a knee before the final itself) Not simply even fantastic.

Amazing what what missing out or adding a single word can do to a sentence, whoops sorry.



27 Jul 2021 23:23:21
On the Ben White debate I think Banbury is more surprised that when money is tight and we had the "best" defence in the league that we spanked 50m on a CD rather than a position we all expected. Fair point. Perhaps some creative flair for 50 to 70m would have been more what the doctor ordered or Bissouma or a right back etc etc

He's a decent young centre back but far from dominant but can read the game and play from the back but he's not the leader we need and we still have Leno!

I'm excited and do feel we overpaid and hope it doesn't impact other areas that really need investment

We are clearly investing with resale value in mind and players with no ego so that Emery sorry Arteta can manage them

COYG - hopefully a few more signings. Don't want Cedric at right back! Or PEA or Willian on the wing. More hope going into the season mainly as Arteta has nowhere to hide now.


1.) 28 Jul 2021 01:17:20
Resale value in mind? This is what I meant by my last post about the sell on clause. So any profit made will be diminished.

2.) 28 Jul 2021 03:39:11
So is a done deal, or should we wait for Wesley?

3.) 28 Jul 2021 09:42:14
Will be completed today.

4.) 28 Jul 2021 18:55:29
Not sure why a club of our size would be worried about resale value of a player about to sign on a 5 year deal? Surely we are more concerned about a signing being successful? Have you lot got millions of pounds worth of shares? 🤔.

5.) 28 Jul 2021 21:24:39
If he's successful his value will naturally increase and that would make a nice change.

If after 3 years of rock solid performances in an Arsenal shirt he sadly decided he wanted away we'd at least make a huge profit on him to reinvest with as Liverpool did with Coutinho, that alone would make a nice change.



21 Jul 2021 23:33:20
What's to argue with Danny -

Asked why White would join another club, Mills responded: 'Because he has got a better chance of winning things. What is he going to win at Arsenal?

'League Cup, if he is lucky. Maybe the FA Cup.

'I think he is an exceptional player and I think he is a fantastic signing for Arsenal. I am just a little bit surprised that Manchester United, who are looking for a centre-half, haven't come in for him. '

We haven't competed for League in at least a decade and have bought some talented young players but still gaps in the team and sorry but still huge question marks over Arteta and our ability to win games

He's paid to share opinions and unless we have a miracle - are we going to win the league within 2 years? I wouldn't bet a penny on that. In the same article he's questioning why Utd bought X when they should have bought Ben. At the same time saying why didn't the player also opt for Utd. I'm sure when we all heard Chelsea were after Ben that we wouldn't win that races- why? For the same reasons / money and they compete for trophies while we don't. I'm not a Mill's fan but has he really stated anything that isn't true?

I really hope we shove his comments down his throat but we haven't got the squad or manager to be in with a shout for the epl trophy in the next 2 to 3 years.,


1.) 22 Jul 2021 08:24:42
If Ben White had chosen Everton Vila or Spurs and Danny Mills said exactly the same things would any of us disagree with his words?

2.) 22 Jul 2021 08:33:33
But if you think Sy United will win the league in next 2/ 3 seasons you need your bumps felt. So why would he join them? Doesn`t ring true and Mills has got us all moaning about him which is all shock jocks eg Adrian Durham want. I am guessing White has bought into whatever project he was sold and I genuinely think we are a quality number 10 my choice Aouar and quality partner for Partey my choice Bissouma away from significant improvement towards top 4 at least. Controversially on balance I would keep Leno buy a back up keeper and spend the £32mill earmarked for Ramsdale on Max Aarons. As far as Mills goes I can call my wife ugly but no one else can COYG.



19 Jul 2021 21:06:44
Reading we've "agreed term" with James Maddison. Now need to agree fee with club. That's the spark I wanted in the team. Another under 25 year old to help build a dynasty ( if true ) . That would make me feel a load better about our attacking flair and creativity.



{Ed002's Note - I can’t see Reading being able to afford him.}

1.) 19 Jul 2021 22:37:32
I saw that too Sy, came from out of the blue!

I’m not looking at the results - to be fair CFC should have spanked us

I’m more bothered about performances - have we learned, is the defence more organised while still allowing us to create chances. Are we getting the ball forward quickly for PEA, are we better at corners and learning from mistakes

That’s the basics.
