Arsenal fan fears stoked by horrible link, here’s why I wouldn’t worry

Happy Sunday morning one and all!

I headed down to the stadium yesterday to pay my respects to the past, I’m gutted I won’t be there to wave the big man goodbye today at the West Ham game, I reckon it’ll be a bit of a party.

I’m pretty sure there won’t be empty seats in the ground for this one. Fans are gearing up for an emotional goodbye in the warm April sun. I hope it’s touching, I hope everyone goes all out for the ‘one Arsene Wenger’ and I hope he feels positive about the team’s reaction over the next few games.

A lot of managers are currently being linked as his replacement, and I think there’s inevitably going to be a lot of panic in the air around Gazidis and co making a shocking replacement. I’m not sure I’m so worried about that, this being the new optimistic Le Grove.

I think the signings that worry the fans the most are Luis Enrique, who did some great stuff at Barcelona but didn’t quite set the world alight like Pep G. There’s also the fear that any half competent manager with that side could win it all. I think his relationship with Raul makes him a candidate, I’m not sure his massive salary cap keeps him in the mix. But who knows…

The other manager people are worried about his Brendan Rodgers. He’ll be the plum choice for all the British tabs who think being British is some sort of achievement or skill. They’ll point to his record at Liverpool being good, and his stellar work at Celtic. Again, can’t have that. He bottled the league with Liverpool in horrendous fashion, then tanked the next year. Add to that he’s now manager at a club Phil Brown could dominate with.

The guy is also a cringe-machine. Sure, he’s not a bad coach, but is he really going to outthink Pep G? Is it really worth the club hiring a manager half the fanbase has zero interest in? Why would Ivan add pressure to his decision by bringing in a manager who will have the boo boys in at the first sniff of trouble? The same journos telling us he’s a great coach were the one’s telling Gooners to be careful what they wish for last year. Their opinion is null and void. I’ll be sending them cease and desists this afternoon.

Hopefully the CEO won’t go there, but there’s no doubt Brendy will be getting a phone call. I think the club have enough time to do their due diligence. I’d imagine he’ll shank the interview by talking about himself in the third person.

I’m still firmly of the belief that Ivan is going to have to make a compromise with the fans. He’ll want a manager who will fit into his carefully crafted infrastructure, that means plucking someone young from the tier 3 or tier 2 managers (see here for tiering info), but the fans will want a tier 1 manager. If he hires an Allegri or a Simeone, he’s going to have cede power to a reputation, if he hires in Arteta, Thierry or Paddy, he’s piling on risk, which is why I think he might land in the middle. Jardim is the perfect fit if you’re taking this logic.

I was wondering if Nagelsmann fits into tier 3 or 2. I think, given his experience taking Hoffenheim to the Champions League, he could sit in tier 2. He put on a big show yesterday against Ralph Hassenhutl in the race for top 4, he’s a tactical genius, he knows how to build out a defence, and he’d be a sexy balls-out signing. We also know Ivan loves a German coach after all the ferreting about there last season. A bit of a worry over whether a 31 year old can work with WC winners, but if the ideas are on point, who cares?

A friend did make an interesting point yesterday, that a clue of where Arsenal might head, could be anchored to the past. If the new manager is to gel, he’s going to have to have someone internally who can vouch for him, otherwise, it’s three totally new people working with another new person. That’s why Enrique is a contender. But we’ll see, certainly a very interesting point to consider.

At core, no decision has been made, so don’t get too worried that we’re talking to managers you don’t like. All you need to know is, whatever happens, it’s going to be more fun than watching Arsene Wenger’s brand of miserable football for another two years, and I’m convinced the club are going to do something big… no Koeman’s, Löw’s or Carlo’s (on the German, even if we wanted him, he’s at the World Cup until late July. He’s not a contender. Thank the lord).

Ivan has the chance to rock The Emirates with new and exciting brand of football. He has the chance to imprint his thinking on the club and make a true impact like he’s never been able to make before, and that’s damn exciting.

As exciting as Spurs dropping out of their 8th FA Cup semi-final in a row? As exciting as Pochetino talking about his team like he’s on the way out? Yes, as exciting as those things. Imagine if we pinched the Argentine as our next manager?! That’d be hilarious… what a coach he is!

Right, I’ll leave you to the game today, have fun, enjoy the moment, and remember good times are coming soon!

Strange how Wenger is only now talking about dis-unity in the fan base when he’s had nothing to say about it over the years whilst the AKBs had his back. He made no attempt that I recall to resolve that. Now it’s not working to his advantage he wants to talk about it? Get the fuck outta here. If he thinks he’s doing himself any favours by turning on the fans now he’s mistaken. The decisions been made he needs to go quietly with his big pay-off.

Globalgunner

We have become a club thanks to Wenger that draws a chuckle from other clubs in the last 16 draw. Everyone wants to play us. A team whose football is a sedative to onlookers, with a manager who sees no faults with his team, only victims of bad luck, bad refs or bad weather. Whose players are more tired than a Vegas hooker most match days. Where players injuries are sustained and repetitive, Where mediocrity is rewarded with top band salaries, The back room staff are the same people here since the Undertaker started wrestling,and all this overseen by an… Read more »

Wenger in, you developed HBP. He is off, your HBP gets a level higher. I think some on here are damn obsessed with man. he is gone and gone for good which is all that matters innthe grande scheme of things. so, i see no reason why y’all still get worked up whenever he talks. it’s not as if he is saying new things. let the future anticipation begin and stop flogging dead horse

You’re right. Ignore the disgruntled employee who recently got fired his grievances mean nothing anymore

”The next manager should build this team around Aaron Ramsey, he’s the clear stand-out player”.

Marko

Fredrik Ljungberg on swedish TV:
”The next manager should build this team around Aaron Ramsey, he’s the clear stand-out player”.

I mean we’re so bad the last two seasons that yes he is the clear stand out player. Top scorer Lacazette and Aubameyang’s bright start to English football might suggest otherwise though. No for me going forward especially if we want to get back to challenging we don’t build the team around him.

Jeff

So when is Arsene’s leaving do?

Jeff

I can just see it. A small cardboard box under his arm and in it the cherished replica of the fourth place trophy.

Do you think he’ll turn up at the training ground the next day just to watch?

Emiratesstroller

Marko

Ramsey does have limitations, but he does also have some good points as well.

We cannot dismantle our entire midfield in one transfer window and dependent on whether Ramsey agrees to sign new contract at realistic wages I would keep him.

I cannot see Arsenal renewing Wilshire’s contract and the same applies to
Cazorla. We are not going to bring in 3 new central midfielders this summer.

Carts

Tbh, as things stand, Ramsey seems like the only plausible player to build a team around.

Problem is that he’s the best of an average>shit bunch of players.

Similarly to what GoH said, the new manager has a massive rebuilding task on his hand. 90-95% of the squad is dilapidated.

Marko

Ramsey does have limitations, but he does also have some good points as well.

Never said he didn’t but to build this club around him is ridiculous. He only started where he started today because we rested Ozil and Mhiki is injured otherwise he’d start in central midfield and going forward I wouldn’t start him in central midfield.And the midfield needs a complete overhaul at the very least two new signings I’d argue 3 because I wouldn’t mind seeing the back of one or two more than just Jack.

R.S.P.C.Arsenal

One stipulation I think the new manage4 will have is that youth must be given a chance to be introduced.
All to often we have good potential players and that is all they remain.
The like of nelson, amn , eddie , Wilcox will need to be given game time consistently if the new person feels they are up to it. So maybe a youthfull manager like the huff boss is the answer.

Marko

Yeah can’t disagree with Gary Neville Simeone could do a great job here but he’s kind of talking about us like we’re some skint football club and that you can’t compete going forward without spending the same kind of money as City and United. I’m not sure I agree we just need to be smarter with our 100 million than say City are with their 200 million

UTarse

Maybe it’s still early days and this whole to and fro between wenger outs and AKBs has some tired legs to run, but surely it has to end sooner or later ? As is obvious from my posts I was a vehement wenger out, but now that’s finally happened, I’ve drawn a line and look forward to a more exciting future for the club. I couldn’t give a monkeys if wenger says this or that and what decisions he’s still making that I may not agree with, fact of the matter is he’s done and Arsenal FC needs a united… Read more »

Whilst agreeing with you that we need to be smarter in spending, someone high at the club authorised the 100 m last summer on players like mustafi , xhara n perez or the sum mer before… 100 m wasted

LINP

I admitted that Wenger did a lot of harm to the club. The way he handled players contracts. Also saving money not to sign players that the club needs. However, he is a gentleman. I would never follow a club coached by Mourinho.
I also find it ironic that he mentioned about the fans in his interview. He wants to make them happy even he has to suffer. Better late than never!

Carts

Come on Napoli!!!!!!

My guy Koulibally to the rescueeee!!

Ishola70

Juventus are going to bag Emre Can it seems.

Would have been a player that Arsenal could have done with.

This leaves Fabinho. Has what is needed but has an annoying habit of many times lofting his passes up into the air, even simple shorter passes. While aerial lofted passes are good for longer range stuff and counters it is not needed for general overall passing. Slows the play down. Iron that out of his game and he is good to go.

Ishola70

Lucas Tousart of Lyon is an interesting one.

Reported that four clubs are chasing him including Arsenal.

Don’t be put off by his young age.

Would be twice the player of Xhaka in regards real suitability for the DM role and tighten the team up.

HillWood

When I first started posting on Le Grove I suggested that Wenger is an old school socialist which seems to have been accepted even by Pedro
I was totally wrong
Wenger actually sees himself as a missionary with a duty to spread harmony world wide
He has used Arsenal FC central hub for his ambitions
Wenger has never been a normal football coach to whom winning is everything

If you think I’m talking bollocks read his interview in the Guardian

Bamford10

I’ve always said that Wenger is the Don Quixote of the football world, but that presser reminded me that he is also a kind of Louis XVI. Like a deposed monarch, he thinks the fault lies not with him but with the people. ‘The fans didn’t do as I would have liked,’ he says, as if the fans were somehow subject to his instructions, his will. Truly incredible. A couple of other things that came out of that presser: I am now thinking he might not have been dismissed per se; I think they placed a restriction upon him or… Read more »

Hillwood

Can you post a link to the Guardian interview?

HillWood

I believe this club is respected all over the world, much more than in England, and our fans did not give the image of unity that I wanted. That was hurtful because I feel the club is respected over the world and, overall, the image we gave from our club is not what it is – and not what I like.

HillWood

“I feel this club has a fantastic image and, for me, that is absolutely vital. We can speak and speak and speak but sport is about winning and losing and you [the supporters] have to accept you will lose games, even when I will not be here any more. But it is about something bigger than just winning or losing and that was always a worry: how the club is perceived worldwide, for kids playing in Africa, China and America and the dreams it can create for young children who want to play football.

HillWood

Asked how damaging it had been for the club, he said: “I don’t know if it was damaging but it was not corresponding to how I feel our club is perceived – and has to be perceived – all over the world. If you travel with us – and I travel a lot – this club is respected all over the world and that is down to work, the way we play football, the way we behave and the way we treat people.

American kids only give a shit about what game Drake is playing and Chinese kids only care about whatever they’re allowed to care about.

In the end Wenger shows himself to be as disingenuous as he is deceitful. Not once, not ever has he accepted fault for any shortcomings, his own or that of his team.

This soap opera, thankfully, has run its course towards a logical conclusion. The definitive end cannot come soon enough for me.

Frankie Coffeecakes

There is agreat deal of truth in what you have written, Bamford. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Reading everything this week, including first hand accounts of those who have had dealings with Wenger, it is clear he is a massively intelligent, humane guy who has done a lot of good off the pitch. And for a decade, he did great things on the pitch. The Arsenal foundation, of which he plays a full part are beyond excellent. Those close to him love him, including I am sure many around the club now. But the fact is , as a coach, if Stan Kroenke fires a man he is so fond of, there is something seriously going wrong.… Read more »

We are up there challenging with the other top 5 clubs and not Burnley and Leicester

The players get better.

The team play football again that isn’t boring. Weak. Tepid. The hand brake is finally off.

The fan divide is gone

Emirates is full of support again.

Think we will start to see a lot of the Wenger in fans stopping to support Arsenal.

It’ll be too hard a pill to swallow for them when we do so muck better under the new manager.

The realization that it really was Wenger who held us back. Divided the fan base. Led to the reputation of Arsenal being battered.

I , for one, can’t wait for opening day next season. A completely re born Arsenal will take to the field.

Herb's Army

What a shameful, shallow lack of class from Arsene Wenger. The man we once all adored for his work during those halcyon days at Highbury, has become a figure of much ridicule for failing to take ownership of his litany of mistakes, and he wants the fan-base to feel guilty for calling him out. Incredible arrogance from a manager who hasn’t dined at the top table in many a year. But he has never fully engratiated or connected with the Arsenal supporters, and he’s had quite a few little digs at Arsenal fans in different press-conferences over the years, I… Read more »

The reality is that Ramsey is one of the best players in a pretty dismal squad.

Might as well keep him for the foreseeable future, sure. But we’re talking about a guy who has had one elite season in his career and that was honks ago.

Injuries, lack of coaching, whatever the reasons, we’re talking about a good player but nothing special (apart from occasional flashes)

For me he’s at best an 8/10 player – but in a team jam packed with 4-7/10 players that has vastly inflated his relative worth

It’s also really tiresome all this bs about wenger being classy and having values He’s leaving so I’m happy to support him for these final few games but get real – cheated on his wife – blamed the fans for his failing several times – lied to the fans literally *countless* times about having money to spend (or that he was interested in spending it) back in the early Ems days The guy is relatively well spoken and has a degree (lol most people have a degree in 2018) and that’s enough to convince people that he’s this intelligent, classy… Read more »

Wenger even given the chance to be reflective and honest about his failure, chooses to arrogantly attack and blame the fans that didn’t like to eat the shit he was serving. So that’s why we are still against him.

Answer to your recent question I’d be happy with Allegri, Jardim, Simeone, and Naglesmann.

However, Rodgers is a no for me. Ditto Arteta but I’d be willing to give Paddy a go.

Couldn’t be further from the truth…. I am really looking forward to supporting the club and next manager whoever it is…

“He’s already throwing his toys out his pram by deflecting and blaming the fans now; the worst thing he could do.Just a little humility and honesty about his faults would have garnered him a lot of respect from many.Now his bitterness is just confirming why he was fired.”

did you actually watch the press conference? because that wasn’t my take away at all.

Leg end… LOL
Yes LOL, I will take an interest in how he gets on…LOL
Will it be PSG or Real Madrid LOL or a national team as David Dein said that Wenger has already turned them down previously. LOL

Wallace I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree with our interpretations. Probably the same as with some previous posts but from my point of view not all of yours. I’ve always respected you and Black Hei for at least being objective with your beliefs and the manner in which you both posted your opinions. My wanting Wenger out dates back some 12 years because I could see what was coming as many of the posters here did. I would have loved to have been proved wrong; it would have saved me a lot of heart ache. Anyway, I’m really… Read more »

Remembering one of the greatest managers of all time, one of the best human beings around would cost you, would it? The lack of support in his last few matches is appalling.’

Thank you for your insightful comment..

You should also take a bow for posting a comment without “cunt” or or “AKB” in it.

It seems Wenger debate and bickering will continue until we get a new manager.

“My wanting Wenger out dates back some 12 years because I could see what was coming as many of the poster”

So the year that we were within ten minutes of being champions of Europe , you could see what was coming could you.

Supposing we had held on for those last ten minutes and the linesman had rightfully flagged their first goal offside and we went on to win the champions league would you still have seen it coming.

That comment shows what total crap you talk….
