Turn up for the books with Nagelsmann being a front runner apparently. Was my 1st choice from the start and would be a wonderful appointment if we could get him! I didn't think he would be in contention at all though really! See how the news develops 🤞🏻.

"Arsenal and Chelsea are monitoring Atalanta midfielder Bryan Cristante, according to Sky sources. It is understood Cristante's representatives met with Premier League clubs in London two weeks ago and the player is keen on a move to England. "

Eds, what are your thoughts? Atalanta have had a mint season to be fair so its no wonder their players are being looked at.

Glenn1308

{Ed001's Note - there are a number of clubs interested in him, Spurs also had him watched a couple of times during the season.}


1.) 30 Apr 2018 14:15:29
What do you think on the player? A good fit for Arsenal? thank you for the reply.


2.) 30 Apr 2018 14:26:03
no idea mate, only seem him play twice.


 

 

25 Apr 2018 08:00:29
Ragnick is an interesting name to see with Klopp and Tuchel speaking highly of him. and Vieira says he's "ready" if he gets the call.

I still want Nagelsmann personally but early signs look as if he's not really on their hitlist!

Eds, please can you give me your thoughts on Ralf Ragnick?

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - Ralf Rangnick would be an odd choice as he retired from management 6 or 7 years agao and apart from an emergency stint has worked as a Director of Football.}


1.) 25 Apr 2018 08:55:21
Thanks for that. Can you think of a reason why they would be potentially considering him in this case? I've read that he's quite stern with players, demands respect and does love to take charge despite his current role.

Someone with pure passion and a backbone would be a good start for Arsenal.

{Ed002's Note - Because he quit coaching 6 or 7 years ago and has been working primarily as a Director of Football since. Aside from his time coaching Hoffenheim he was a journeyman coach who rarely stayed long. He is about 60 now.}


2.) 25 Apr 2018 09:12:28
I would of thought that someone who quit coaching would be a reason to not consider them but hey, it looks as if people are slamming money down on him as his odds are dropping like mad! Perhaps use him in the interim so that someone like Arteta can gain more experience.

{Ed002's Note - So why would he leave his Direct of Football job with Red Bull to take an interim job at Arsenal?}


3.) 25 Apr 2018 10:13:39
Exactly that. Sometimes money talks but then again we're not exactly renowned for paying big bucks! Who goes in to any job planning to just be there 'in the interim'? We shall see.


 

 

19 Jan 2018 13:08:45
Hello Eds, Any further news on Aubameyang? BVB keep saying Arsenal are yet to even make contact. Is this true?

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - There are representatives of Dortmund in London today and they met with another side this morning - and I don’t know when that will finish. Perhaps they will have time to talk to Arsenal later today - at least one will not be staying over as he has a meeting elsewhere later. So we will see but you need to be sit on your hands for a while more.}


1.) 19 Jan 2018 13:49:08
Hopefully meeting with another side regarding a different player. Appreciate the transfer process isn't simple but its more and more speculation rather than fact! Seems as though he is happy to make the move.


2.) 19 Jan 2018 13:41:51
If arsenal get the auba deal done do you think that arsenal will try and accommodate laca and auba in starting 11 or will one be competition for the other with talks of Giroud on his way?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


3.) 19 Jan 2018 13:58:49
Who’s the other team after him and who do you think will get him, this isn’t what is arsenal fans like to hear another one bites the dust.


4.) 19 Jan 2018 14:47:40
If there was another team in for him they were meeting with the reps it would of been picked up by official sky sources surely? And why would they not have made time for Arsenal first. Doesn't make sense that but yes, it does seem odd and perhaps we are just getting our hopes up ha!


5.) 19 Jan 2018 15:57:33
I find it insane Chelsea ain’t looking at auba. He’s exactly what they need. And you could play Morata and auba. If sky’s to be believed they are looking at crouch and Carrol? Insane when they have Morata.


6.) 19 Jan 2018 17:15:15
Were they meeting representatives about Aubameyang? Thanks for the info ED!

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant but it is very tough to find a bidder for the player. Arsenal should get a free run at him.}


7.) 19 Jan 2018 20:08:09
Hi ED002, do you think they're has been talks between AFC and Dortmund with regards to Aubameyang or is it all media talk, as it's stating by certain people contract terms are all agreed.

{Ed002's Note - Please read the first answer.}


8.) 20 Jan 2018 19:20:05
Thumbs up was for Ed’s answer.


 

 

08 Jan 2018 14:44:57
Afternoon Eds,

I see some rumored links to Jannik Vestergaard. Can you confirm interest from Arsenal for a potential January signing seeing as Wenger said they will be looking to improve the squad?

Glenn1308

{Ed002's Note - Jannik Vestergaard is of interstes to Spurs, who tried to buy him in 2015, Inter and Arsenal. Borussia Monchengladbach won't be selling him in January.}


1.) 08 Jan 2018 15:28:31
Shame. Looks a promising player who could shake up our spineless defence!

In my opinion, I reckon there will be some players who will get a serious kick up the a**e! There is too much complacency amongst certain players in the squad so they'll be in for a shock! I'm a big fan of Maitland-Niles so would like to see the team built around him also. However, Rambo and Ainsley in the middle? We need a class DM to be honest so that wouldn't really fit the 4-2-3-1 that Emery likes. Intrigued to see how he lines up pre-season with the current squad.

Glenn1308

1.) 23 May 2018 09:29:15
Of Ozil doesn't sort himself out i'd like naitland and a new defensive midfielder with Ramsey in front behind the forwards. He'd contribute more than ozil seems too.


2.) 23 May 2018 09:54:14
Yeah we're all optimistic mate, Uni really seem the right choice really sound the antidote to the complacency at arsenal fc. really optimistic. First good impression for me get rid of Welbek, chambers, and get a reliable CB and also cash in from Koschelni and get a backup striker like El sharwi/ J Vardy and possibly another holding CM.


3.) 23 May 2018 10:20:31
Hevvs who in their right mind is going to sign Koscielny when he’s currently out injured for 6 months. Also he’s the current club captain in a squad devoid of leadership so selling him is not only nigh on impossible but makes little to no sense.


 

 

22 May 2018 10:10:17
Kalidou Koulibaly is a player we need at Arsenal 100%. Koulibaly with Sokratis, Bellerin and Kolasinac. Emery likes his 4-2-3-1 and possibly 4-3-3 so I don't see him playing with 5 at the back. He may even want to sell a CB as crazy at that sounds but Chambers, Mustafi, Kos, Holding and Mavropanos will then be too many! Mav. Holding and Chambers will be brilliant under the right coach imo!

Glenn1308

1.) 22 May 2018 16:48:05
Bro Chambers is just straight up shocking no? Get him as far away from the club as possible I say 😬.


 

 

18 May 2018 09:16:53
Arteta as Head Coach and Thierry Henry as his assistant? Long shot but i wouldn't mind that at all! In all honesty i'm intrigued to see what Arteta can bring out of our current players. They have been coached wrong and and with a new dynamic i think we will be alright! COYG!

Glenn1308

1.) 18 May 2018 09:59:46
Alex Ferguson is regarded as a great manager, have any of his coaches turned into top managers, any of his ex players even.

Not saying that will always be the case but this club is big enough not to gamble.


2.) 18 May 2018 10:07:44
Allgeri would get 18 months of indifferent results because of his cv before the out campaign got in full swing against him.
Henry would probably get a season due to the fans love for him regardless of things not improving
Artetta would be under pressure from day one because of the resistance towards him already from many fans and a poor August/ September could see the first banners appear and planes flying over the stadium.
Ideally you want the fans on board because it makes for a better atmosphere and improves the chances of success but it would be a huge mistake to make this popularity competition because if the board try to please the fans by doing what's popular now the fans will soon exonerate themselves from any responsibility and blame the board for all that goes wrong even if it was what they wanted at the time.
The club have to do what they think is right rather than what's popular as it's their only chance of coming out of it well.
Artetta is a high risk punt but Henry would be even higher because he has even less experience and the two together wouldn't work in my opinion as Henry is a main man no a supporting cast member, he has a very good job now and it's a lot to give up to be someone else's assistant.


3.) 18 May 2018 11:30:58
People like a big name and that's all it really bows down too. You see a big name and think 'We'll be alright, we have Allegri. it will be fine! '. However, that's not always the case. In Arteta you have a man who demands respect and always did as a player. He was a big influence in the dressing room and led the team well in my opinion. You can't say that about any player that we currently have in the squad. He always openly stated that he wanted to be a manager and then when the time was right Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino both wanted him. A man with no experience wanted by two of the best coaches in the game? That already says something about his knowledge and attitude! In 2014 Arteta was questioned about what he would bring as a manager. His response:

"I will have everyone 120 per cent committed, that's the first thing. If not, you don't play for me. When it's time to work it's time to work, and when it's time to have fun then I'm the first one to do it, but that commitment is vital. "
"Then I want the football to be expressive, entertaining. I cannot have a concept of football where everything is based on the opposition. We have to dictate the game, we have to be the ones taking the initiative, and we have to entertain the people coming to watch us. I'm 100 per cent convinced of those things, and I think I could do it. "

Arteta may not be the big name that everyone wants to see and label as 'ambition' but you know what, I am excited by the prospect of seeing what he can do with the players we have plus a few new additions. It may all go pear shaped but if you want to talk about a perfect candidate based on management style and commitment, then Arteta's not really a bad fit! IF he gets appointed, then let's get behind him, no?


4.) 18 May 2018 12:48:21
I doubt henry would accept to play second fiddle to Arteta. It says a lot about Henry that despite being one of the best players in the history of the club that the club won't consider him for the top job.


5.) 18 May 2018 13:26:37
Glenn i see you are buying into the american dream. Lol.


6.) 18 May 2018 14:40:55
I'm not buying to anything Steve mate. I'm merely saying why would you not back Arteta when he's man enough to step into the job? If the fans are concerned about his morals and what he wants to bring then they shouldn't because he's and ideal fit (albeit on paper) .


7.) 18 May 2018 16:28:06
Its not about backing, he will be backed at the start of the season. The rest is down to how much and how long they/ we trust him. With him being new, i think the trust time will be less. I know i'm looking on the negative. If he comes in and flies then there will be no problem. The hard bit for him learning is hitting the the right notes straight away with the 5 teams above him now all having battle hardened coaches.


8.) 18 May 2018 17:36:52
Give him a chance but still get kronke out lol.


 

 

15 May 2018 09:08:04
The reason people who support other clubs on here don't want Arsenal chasing Julian Nagelsmann is because they all want him at they're own club! Haha. He would be a fine fit or Arsenal and would 100% be the perfect man for the job. He's got stardom written all over him and whichever club gets him next will be very fortunate!

Glenn1308

1.) 15 May 2018 11:41:36

Nagel is going nowhere.


 

 

14 May 2018 07:39:41
Can someone please explain why Rafa Benitez is not in the frame for the Arsenal job? Allegri wants to stay at Juve and our other candidates are nothing special in all honesty! (other than Naglesmann but he isn't really in the frame) . Rafa has taken a very weak squad with no investment down to the championship, has come straight back up to the premiership and finished the campaign in 10th! What he has achieved with that squad is incredible and all he wants is a little investment which Mike Ashley is not prepared to give him. Brilliant manager, great stint at Liverpool, Chelsea (interim) , Napoli and Madrid also!

Glenn1308

1.) 14 May 2018 09:14:20
Rafa is not a bad shout would 100% rather him than Arteta. Plenty of experience a good tactician and knows what it takes to win things. Mike Ashley will never give him the funds and control he wants at Newcastle until he sells on, so if Arsenal show some ambition we could get him.


2.) 14 May 2018 11:19:58
Glenn i am not sure nagelsmann is in the frame. If he is and he is interested in the job, i can't fathom why he won't get it seeing his competitors being arteta and viera who have no experience coaching at the top level. My gut feeling is he may not be interested in the arsenal job. we are not as hot as we think we are.


3.) 14 May 2018 12:20:53
Glen, you forgot valencia, rafa is a fantastic coach and would fit us too a tee. He doesn't need billions of pounds to get teams doing their jobs. He is a studious man and this board are stupid if he isn't in the top three of consideration. I also think, talking too people who watch Newcastle, he would come. They all expect himto go. They don't want him too but they think he will.

Another point that should be mentioned. Why would Arteta want to leave the best team in the league working under arguably the best manager in the world (because of money) ? If he does take the job then fair play to him! He's risking his limelight that Pep keeps giving him to go out on manage the club that he loved to play for! I must stress that it wasn't my first choice by a long shot but there must be something there. I hope!

It will probably be once the season is over and the picture for next season is clearer. If we don't get to the final and lose to united, we than face a tougher game against Burnley. There is still a chance we could end up 7th with no European football and I don't see a couple of our managerial targets accepting that. Sorry Mr Wenger, ummm, can you stay another 12 months please the candidates are awful!

Before his name was put in the hat nobody wanted Arteta because he wasn't proven? Yet Emery has won 2 french super cups, french league cup and the Europa league 3 times consecutively with Sevilla. I might be mistaken but he also took 2 lower league clubs to promotion within his 1st season is charge? Everybody loses games fashionably but that doesn't make them underachievers. I'm not saying I want him but you can't really fault his credentials when it comes to experience compared to Arteta? I would question his loyalty but apart from that.

I wouldn't write off Emery! He's a manager who is used to not getting the financial backing he would like (hence his strong defensive attributes) which may play in our favour. Apart from PSG he took on a Valencia and Sevilla side that were either riddled in debt or just couldn't afford a decent transfer budget. He likes to play with a 4-2-3-1 and often a 4-3-3 which would work well with the current squad and with that comes a lot of high pressing. Something that Arsenal tend to do for the first 10 minutes and then give up doing. Defensively we would see an improvement 100%.

But IF it works you'll be loving it right? Just like all the other Arsenal fans. Jeez cut the guy some slack for having the balls to take the job. He will need fans to get behind him instead of calling him a failure before he's even started!
