IT IS CONTENT CRAZY OUT HERE.
I recorded a podcast with the exceptionally interesting football analyst/broadcaster/journalist Matt Scott. He’s a big fan of Unai Emery, so a real counterpoint to Le Grove, so hopefully you find the TWO-PART series an EXCELLENT LISTEN.
What have we today?
Big Dave O’Leary trying to barge his way onto the board of directors. Apparently Don Raul does not like this idea.
Hard to know what to think. Bringing footballers into the club can be a great thing, or it can be an absolute disaster. Zidane worked behind the scenes at Madrid before taking over the first team. That worked out. I’m not sure we can expect that from one of our most storied players, but what you would hope is that his love for the club carried through into the day-to-day.
I’m not sure Raul will ever love Arsenal or care for it in the way an explayer would. He’s Barca DNA and he always will be. What you have to hope is he’s a good steward of the club while he’s here.
David O’Leary did great things for a time at Leeds before the transfer strategy went nuts under Peter Risdale. I know through contacts that he deeply loves Arsenal and that he coveted the job at The Emirates for a long time. That was why he was so keen to show off against us, which came across a bit vicious.
Anyway, I have no idea how he thinks, but let’s be honest, the average age of our highly ineffective board could do with lowering and it could do with a bit of football behind it. The explayer route works very well at Bayern.
Arsene Wenger FINALLY landed the big job he’s wanted all his life, he took a post at FIFA. It is MENTAL to read his fanbase chalk this up as a success, anyone who understands a single thing about him will know all he coveted was a dugout job. Hey ho, at least he’s getting paid dollars and it’s great to know there’s at least one person at FIFA with values.
Right, short post today. Here’s the first of the two-part series. The other one is up if you want to listen to it straight after.
