Ed, 'IF' Allergi does become Arsenals manager this summer, would it have an impact on what Sanchez does? Surely if Wenger does decide to move on, the board would let the next manager decide the fate of our big stars. I would assume Allergi is a fan of Sanchez being he's been link with Juventus for quite some time even if the Juva board have the say of who comes and goes, surely the manager has some input.


{Ed002's Note - I think because the fans have turned the players will have priorities which include the options available.}

Hey Eds, is there any interest in Reus or Gotze? Both young and talented. I feel arsenal could benefit from having an out and out winger.


{Ed002's Note - Try the European pages where this has been answered.}

I'm hearing a lot about Fabregas. Is there any chance of a return to Arsenal?


{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer questions with "any chance" in.}

1.) Hopefully not. He walked out on us, when he had 3 years left on his contract and was captain. The Barca fans have turned against him, as the team has to be modified to fit him in and he lacks pace. We have plenty of players in his position and are more in need of better defensive midfield options, such as Bender & M'Vila, who could replace the slow duo of Arteta & Flamini.

2.) You realise that this isn't Fifa? It really doesn't matter whether Cesc is "slow". He could be standing still and he would be class.

3.) You would take Mvia over Cesc? Madness. Bender is good and I would sign him but I would get Cesc in and ship of Cazorla myself.

4.) I don't think wenger is going to sell any players, only those that will walk.

we need depth and bringing in bender and josip drmic and hopefully cesc and a striker should be enough to go again next season.

5.) Chess - As a defensive midfield player sitting in front of the back four, of course I would take M'Vila instead of Fabregas. We have Ozil, Wilshere, Cazorla, Rosicky, Oxlade, Ramsey & Abu Diaby who can all play the Fabregas role. Possibly in some cases not as well, but we need to spend in other areas, as we look like needing a keeper, a right back, a centre back, a defensive midfield player & a striker.

We definitely need someone who can really pick out the killer balls. Too many times I'm screaming for our midfield to set someone free when they make a good run only for the ball to go sideways.

It's as if they don't seem brave enough or sure of their ability to try it. We've all seen Cesc and know that he can play those killer through balls. Older and wiser now and scoring more.

I would certainly add that to the mix. You can never have too many good ingrediants.

Hey Ed. What do you think the chances are of seeing Rooney and Fabregas playing for Arsenal next year. Personally can't see Arsenal paying Rooney's wages or seeing Barcelona off loading Fabreagas but can't stop thinking what if. {Ed007's Note - None.}

Gunner, I’ll be honest I’ve never really heard of a club making as big of a deal of interviewing candidates for a managerial position as we are and did prior to emery. A club usually just goes for who they want. For example spurs with Mourinho. And To be honest, I’m not sure who arsenal think they are throwing statements out like that with our fixture list, league position and hostility within the club. It’s embarrassing Thinking top end managers would even want the job mid way through an awful season. The board should have just said, we’re taking the employment of the next manager seriously and won’t rush the decision. Imagine actually throwing out a number like 10. The owners haven’t got a clue about football.

ED who do you logically see as the front runner? And who would you appoint?


{Ed047's Note - logic would say one of Ancelotti or Pochettino because we have got ourselves in a position where gambling on an unknown/inexperienced manager could have serious consequences.

Either of those are far more likely to get us back on an even keel which is clearly what we need right now.

We can probably forget winning trophies for a while yet too because we have to sort the mess out. We are royally hampered by the situation upstairs which is not helping our cause.

Europe is no joke. The top 4 could be completely out of reach within 5 weeks. It could be our only hope of CL football, so who ever is in charge not only has a bigger kitty, but a bigger pull to top end players to rebuild the spine of the team.

Winning Europe also impacts the mindset of certain players signing contract extensions.

As for manager, young managers looking to restructure a team needs a summer. Poch fulls into that, winning nothing. Ancolotti has the experience to handle pressure. Arteta could lose the first 3 games working out his team and suddenly confidence is dead.

Ancolotti would also have or should have the instant respect from his players.

Conclusion. pay Ancolotti a ton of money for a short term (evaluated end of season) contract (If possible) .

Reports saying laca could be dropped for Pepe. I have no idea what’s going on at the training field, but I can’t be the only fan that thinks play 4 at the back, 2 holding (not box to box) and leave Ozil feeding Pepe Laca and Aubamayang up top. With bellerin (if fit) and tieny fullbacks, our flanks are rapid. let’s face it, we don’t have the players to defend with any real quality, so surely we have to be extra aggressive with our attacks. Score more than the opponents if you will.

I actually think David Luiz should play as a DM, as he can pass and doesn’t mind getting stuck in. Emery played him there last game and it was after his rip injury And came off, we went back to awful. And all us fans want to see for a few weeks on the spin- Ozil feeding aubamayang laca and Pepe in front.
