Interesting reports coming from Italy that Ancelotti will replace Wenger at the end of the season. Thoughts fellow Gooners?

{Ed002's Note - Maybe that is why he moved to London?}

Agree2 Disagree0

Ed002 - Yes, although I belive reports stated that Ancelloti and his wife enjoyed living in London and kept their home after leaving Chelsea.
I think he would be a good replacement for Wenger, particularly as none of the other top managers are available and giving the role to an inexperienced manager would be extremely risky.

{Ed002's Note - If that is what reports have said they are incorrect. However, right now Carlo A is absed out of London and I can I suppose now tell you that the Arsenal job is the one that he would like. However, the usual complications of a two year contract for AW would still have a year to run, and someone well placed at the club having someone else in mind.}

Regardless of who the new manager is, it must be an attractive option. And even if Wenger still has the ability to pull something out the bag or not the perception around Europe is that it's not a good place to come and play. A new manager and a few statement buys will quickly change that. Wenger signing a new two year deal was crazy. It is only a short term view. If he is going to go in two years and things ain't great now he may as well call it a day now. No good can come of him staying any longer. It truely is sad times all round. The man who was once loved by all isn't going to get the same grace as SAF did upon his retirement where he left as a king.

Arsenal do not need a short term fix of ancelotti, he's another pensioner with old ideas. What arsenal need is a younger manager with a new vision and can shake up the outdated ideas that are holding this club back. Football is moving on from the antiquated managers of yester year. Arsenal need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21 century of the football world. Tell me a succesfull pensioner in football today and there are 20 more younger up to date visionaries running the top clubs.

My problem is not specifically with wenger but his and others shelf life.

11 Jan 2018 17:20:23
if stan stays it will be the same.

I agree to a point steve! But it can't be any young manager it has to be someone with balls and even though ancelotti might not be my choice, he may carry some weight and get some good players.

11 Jan 2018 18:01:15
Sano, agree i don't mean one wet behind the ears.

11 Jan 2018 18:04:35
Totally steve but some of these highly rate young managers haven't proven themselves at this level and could soon be starting to spring leeks behind those ears.

Ancelloti was won many trophies and is 58.
The best younger manager is Pochettino who is in his mid-40;s and hasn't won a thing. Wenger at 68 has won 3 FA Cups over the last 4 seasons and SAF won many trophies in his 60's.
I like Marco Silva and he has won trophies, but Wenger is a hard act to follow. Even in a poor season he is 90 minutes away from a final.

Rg if and it is an if, ancelotti would be a massive upgrade on wenger and i'm sure most would be happy. I just think the progressive clubs are looking younger and all the present top managers/ coaches are younger.

Ed002who is the someone else in mind?

{Ed002's Note - Simeone.}

11 Jan 2018 22:08:31
thank you, and wow, Really surprised by that.

11 Jan 2018 22:24:26
I hope that the someone well placed at the club is listened too.
