Q if Wenger loves the club like he says, would he really walk away without a manager lined up / in place? . I was always convinced he would have a say in the replacement and he wouldn't leave us high and dry because Arsenal is his family . maybe I have been fooled by his BS . but in my head reality is I believe he will stay and get a suitable replacement lined up.

If Wenger has said he wants another 4 years in management and his preference is Arsenal . There is your answer, he is a cash cow for Arsenal . The board will want Wenger to stay.

Just thinking with the amount of suitable replacements for Wenger being thin, another situation in Spain with luis Enrique possibly leaving Barcelona at the end of the season we could be in competition with them for a top manager.

My wife is Italian and works at an Italian law firm and all the buzz about the place, was that Wenger is off and Allegri has been approached. Time will tell.

APEX.
Gazidis was probably in Spain still shopping and spending some of that huge bonus he received from last seasons success we had mate.
God knows what he would be doing if we actually achieved something? .

Lanesra really what an inane comment. The law firm concerned is one of the top firms in Italy and any deals involving Italian footballers and managers will involve a big Italian law firm and if that firm have London offices then it is clear that they may involved or serious rumours emerge. Not some waiter in your local Italian restaurant.

I agree RG. But my uncles ex wife's son works as a ball boy in Turin and he has also said that allegri is going to be our new manager so you info seems correct.

The only positive thing about last night is that wenger has to go now, no chance he will sign a new deal.

Ed i have honestly tried to read the posts to find the information about the first manager we tried getting to replace arsene but got backfired. Would u please just say the manager name, i don't need an explanation mate.

{Ed002's Note - It is really not worth the grief for me to explain anything that happens or has happened regarding the manager - it will lead to trolling and grief for all.}

We have approached of one manager, but that has been rebuffed by a third party representing him.

Another option is Allegri.

Thomas Tuchel?

I think the board will look to appoint someone young enough to lead the club for 10+ years, they'll also keep with the attacking football and will want someone who integrates youth.
Ed has told us Allegri would be on the shortlist, he also told us Simeone would be at Atletico still next season so we can stop naming him.

Personally I think it'll be one of Tuchel, Jardim or Allegri.

Hopefully we'll all be on our best behaviour and Ed will enlighten us once more.

{Ed002's Note - It would take a lot to get Allegri to agree to go beyond 2022.}

Thanks for the reply Ed002. Any chance you'd want to give us your opinion on who Arsenal should be looking at? I think most of us find it interesting to hear your (and the other Editors) takes on things.

Seems to be a general consensus around Allegri that he's a much better manager tactically than Conte, and I suppose Juventus' champs league performances are a testament to that. Even if he only stayed until 2022 I think he'd be a great appointment, although Tuchel would be my first choice!

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that the club are looking at their options for this summer and the offer of a two year deal last summer was of no interest to Wenger (and to some extent there was a real big deal at the time so it was understandable) - but 2018 would have been preferred by the club and suspect it is still preferred. I have explained about a couple of those who the club has considered - but there are others, and the opinion of Mr Wenger has been sought. If you want my fear, it would be that M Wenger takes over as a Director of Football and mentors one of two potential replacements who would likely be willing to accept that scenario.}

I'm guessing Vieira is one of the 2 in the scenario that Wenger becomes DoF. Please tell me Remi Garde isn't the other, that could be a recipe for disaster!?

Thanks for the info Ed002, greatly appreciated.

Ed, i dunno if your an arsenal fan but in your opinion who would u say is the best fit mate? Only your opinion cause i value what u say mate.

{Ed002's Note - Allegri would be ideal if Wenger were to leave this year.}

Guys Chelsea fan out here. I watched the game between arsenal and Bayern. Sometimes u need to step back and see where the fault lies. 4 out of 5 goals were basic defensive errors. Agree that Wenger must share some blame for not dropping many non-performers. But having said that the board is also equally culpable of retaining these players. There are not many who can seamlessly replace wenger. Actually I feared when mourinho was sacked. Conte has done well luckily and got the players in line. But u guys need to pray for that to happen. Because whoever comes in needs to address the player issue first.

Cheers for opinion ed. Allegri would be a big change, he's a lot more ruthless. One of his mistakes, for me, was selling Pirlo to Juventus from Milan due to his age making him surplus requirments. Wenger would never do that, look at Arteta and the like.

{Ed002's Note - Coaches in many of the European sides have much less say on transfers than M Wenger.}

Remember we signed Walcott, Ox, Ramsey, bellerin giroud for peanuts years ago. Wenger has worked with them for years to get them to their current level. Giroud was the most expensive at 12 mill. Simply we are too loyal to average players instead of selling them and buying better ones. That's why wenger needs to go. He is not ruthless enough and it's cost us over the years.

The fact that you still have Walcott, Gibbs, Wilshere etc. Still pickingg up top wages at the club is a disgrace. Wenger has taken loyalty to another level.

If Arsene is to leave come May as Wright has predicted would Arsenal have to make an announcement in advance like Man utd did with fergie.

He basically said that he spoke to arsene and gets the feeling that he will leave this season. Ed i checked the old posts and didn't find your opinion on the topic, can u repeat it please?

{Ed002's Note - I explained in the past couple of days that the club are making provisions for him to leave as planned this summer - but they would have liked another year out of him.}

Am I right in thinking ManU had to announce it as they are on the New York Stock Exchange? I hope the Wenger contract is resolved swiftly either way at the end of the season to allow plenty of prep time in the summer.

Was a listed company I believe. UTD would have needed to declare things in line with exchange rules.

I can't believe he's actually going to go. Ed i'm sorry i really don't know how to use this website but can u tell me the list of candidates plz. It will be the last question because i know u hate repeating urself.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that evrytime I have explained what has happened so far and what the options might be the vegetables come out of the woodwork and wreck it for everyone. I have explained previously that approaches have been made to two people and that the first told a third party acting on behalf of the club that he would not welcome an approach. The second is Allegri as I have explained.}

I think we need to stick to our guns keep faith in Wenger. I hope he signs another 2 year contract. We have been in a very dark place. We are coming through and can see the light but let us not abandon our leader.

Let ozil and ramsey go, in order to bring back wilshere and asano back from their loans.

10 Feb 2017 16:11:27
I agree Ramsey should go because I think he's losing out by staying and could be twice the player we've seen at a different club. Sadly we can't give him that and we're not prepared to cut him a lot of slack, but matches like Watford last week only entrench those views further.

Letting Ramsey go and using more solid midfielders behind our number 10s is surely a reason to keep Ozil though. When the team's playing well as a whole, Ozil tends to exemplify that. We'd be mad to let him go if he wants to stay and would almost definitely get better with more stable reinforcements backing him up in our midfield.

But hey, who needs that kind of prospect when they can just recall Takuma Asano this summer (visa issues aside) and it'll be a case of 'job done'?

I think the problem with Ramsey, and the same applies to oxlade chamberlain is that they actually try to get us playing, so much of our play is sideways and backwards passing, but these two actually try and get us playing, and when they are caught in possession it gets highlighted. I really like both and think they are much better than us arsenal fans give them credit for. We've seen how Ramsey performs for Wales and I think it's because he is allowed to just go out and play without pressure. Maybe us fans should lay off him, because he looks like he's trying too hard, which is never how you should approach a match.

Ed are we interested in jorginho of napoli. I listened to the sharkpod but all the midfielders were attacking midfielders and I think our main problem is defensive midfield. Bakayoko would be good but very expensive. Thank you.

{Ed025's Note - not as far as we are aware ja..

For the DM roles, we have Xhaka, Elneny, Coquelin and Cazorla ( Wenger plays him there, I prefer him further forward and if Ozil departs the central attacking midfield role is made for him) . I can't see us adding to this or selling anyone, but I believe Coq needs to improve. He was a breath of fresh air when he came through after his Charlton loan, but I think we were slightly over-impressed as we had for many seasons played without DM players.

08 Feb 2017 10:39:04
I don't think so, Coquelin has been a great DM for over a season now - his stats back that up in terms of tackles made, interceptions, shots blocked etc. He has just had a bad couple of games lately and that's it in my humble opinion, not helped by the fact everyone around him is having a bad game. I do wish he still wore that mask though which he got after he broke his nose on Giroud's head.

Ed do u think arsene will leave in your opinion? Fans are really starting to get on him.

{Ed002's Note - I have already answered this, but the club has been making provision regardless.}

i am worried if wenger goes upstairs, and a new manager comes in, will he have 100% control of who he buys and as much money as he wants. or will wenger have a say, if he does he might as well stay. wenger out 100% now.

I'm also worried if he goes upstairs.

My bedroom looks like a pigsty and there's towels all over the bathroom floor 😃.

Hahaha, love it Dags.

Seriously, Wenger's control over spending shouldn't be a significant concern to us. He's produced a fair few good squads over the years and has had quite a few very shrewd purchases in those squads.

Most of the problems that bother us, like not showing up for the big games, sleepwalking into the first half of games or even significant injuries to key players, might well stop bothering us if he moved upstairs.
