Its happened at Last no idea what the plan for new guyNovember 29, 2019 at 10:17 am #1803276
Lundberg as interim head coach which means they did not or have not completed new search. I am so F off I wanted him out but hate we are up in the air with no plan !November 29, 2019 at 10:25 am #1803281
Ljungberg is a real shortterm as he does not have the proper license to manage for more than 12 days at least thats what I read.November 29, 2019 at 10:26 am #1803282

All I’m saying is this may not change anything but… yes!!!!!!! I can’t hide my jubilation, get in there!!!!! I haven’t even said that about an Arsenal goal recently!November 29, 2019 at 10:27 am #1803283
its a start mate! its a good start! hopefully the groundwork has been going on behind the sences for the new manager and it wont be long (AND BE THE RIGHT MAN!!!)November 29, 2019 at 10:28 am #1803285
thsi next appoint ment is going to be so critical, get it right and we can start getting back to where we belong, get it wrong and we end up like unitedNovember 29, 2019 at 10:52 am #1803307
I also read that Freddie does not have the right badges to coach. Three months maximum I understand. I think the club probably do have a plan but need a little time to eecute it. Guessing we probably have a shortlist of a few names?
Does anyone know if Freddie has a style of play? What can we expect from him?November 29, 2019 at 11:26 am #1803319

i think the new man has already been selected but both bits of news are never done at the same time….especially if the new man already has a club…November 29, 2019 at 11:43 am #1803332
This club really boggles the mind at times.The sacking was inevitable,But why wait till so long only to appoint freddie as interim manager.You’d have thought we waited so long because we were identifying replacements and once chosen he’d have been announced.I don’t know how long freddie will be in charge for,but people need to remember he was part of Emery’s coaching staff too.Obviously his input has also had an effect.I serisouly hope we announce a permanent manager within 2-3 games.
All the managers we’re being linked with,most have a job.I think our best options would be Arteta or Poch.My first choice would be poch,No doubt but it’s a long shot.
If not,then Arteta.I know he’s no 2 to pep but if such an oppurtunity comes knocking I’m sure they’ll come to an agreement.
Whatever it is,if we’re ever going to go for a manager with little to no manegerial expereince,Now is the time.It’s the perfect time,it’s an expendable season.Not before the start of a full season should we take that risk.November 29, 2019 at 1:15 pm #1803371
There are reports that Arsenal were also in for Mourinho,only for tottscum to swoop in first for him.Imagine sacking an overachieving manager and going in for Mourinho.
Three ready available replacements.It’s upto the board now on how long they will take to name the replacement!November 29, 2019 at 4:08 pm #1803418
How attractive is our job. There is living in London and the money but we are so far off the pace is Brendan going to give up a good Leicester team and start al over again? We are bigger than Wolves but they are doing well and he is meeting and exceeding expectations. Why will Nuno come to Arsenal and try and change your playing style as playing on the counter wont work for us. I cant see either of these as an option. Poch is No1 for me if not Allegri although don’t know enough about him or his teams, then Arteta but not sure we should go for no experience. What I don’t want is Freddie there for ever as don’t think he did great with the stiffs and remember they also could not keep clean sheets and they also took a few hammerings. I do appreciate its a totally different kettle of fish to the first team but that’s the only experience he has. Weirdly I am happy he has gone but feel shit it has got so bad !November 29, 2019 at 5:29 pm #1803438

This next appointment is going to make or break the new board set up. You can allow some forgiveness for emery appointment after such a long reign with Wenger. Emery initially was on point, going 21 games unbeaten, we looked to have turned the corner but then something happen internally and the players just couldnt get on board with what he wanted. He really should have gone at end of last season in hindsight.
So the next manager, many of us have different views on who this should be. There isnt much out at the moment that really fills me with confidence. We should have got maureen in when we had the chance (just my opinion) we havent and now who is there really that can come in a sort this out?
My belief is that the next man has to know the premiership or atleast have understanding of the english leagues and its intensity. Number 1 would be Brendan Rogers but thats not going to happen. Which leaves a few options in the bookies Arteta, Benitez, Nuno, Poch and few others. Personally i dont want Nuno i just dont see it. He’s done ok at Wolves but certainly hasnt ripped up trees. benitez whilst a good coach i think has loast his way. Arteta, highly regarded learning under Pep, was like Marmite with Arsenal fans has some potential to be great. Poch, that wont happen, no chance.
Alot of people crying out for Max Allegri – i was really in favour of this a while back but i fear we could be doing another Emery and that language barrier will get in the way. His track record with similar profile clubs is not great. At juve he had the team that was expected to win the league a team with the best players, much like Emery at PSG! his Milan team was also fantatsic when he took them over but slowly they sold all their players and with the mediocre Milan team he failed to deliver and was ultimately sacked. Look at the Milan fans forums and comments over the years an its very indifferent
my 3 choices:
My preferred choice is Patrick Vieira, he knows the league, he knows the club, he is very highly regarded, he would command the respect of the players and the fans – he has won the lot. With his old colleague and chum Freddie there, it could be a very shrewd bit of business.
The other candidate that hasnt got a mention, another very resepcted coach world wide is Bielsa from Leeds. Its a huge step up but Klopp, Poch and Pep basically all the top managers have waxed lyrical about him and when they do those manager/coaching events he is always at the forefront of ideas.
Ancelotti having a tough time with Napoli at moment but its a volatile club, hes got a wealth of experience, players always like him and he is a winner. He would command respect knows the league very well.

Don’t agree with this Language barrier issue Obviously I would prefer it if his English was good but Poch never had an issue with it ! The players all don’t speak the same language its just about getting your message across to them. No one would care what he was saying if we are winning every week its only an issue when we are not! Brendan is sounding like he fancies it as he is not saying no and keeps talking about his project ad now saying he has a release clause ! I would take him if Poch is off the table.December 2, 2019 at 8:39 am #1804039
hearing that Brendan has come out to say there is a release clause for him at Leicester?
I think Allegri has been learning English for some time in hopes of taking the United Job, i think the language is less of an issue, its the message given not how its delivered….still Allegri for me, he will sort us out defensively, 2nd would Brendan…then i dont know and as we are likley to get osmeone who isnt one of these 2 i dont really care to speculate will just wait and see…..
