Hi ed01. Would like to hear your opinion on what Gary Neville said about Simone for the Arsenal job. I have heard what both you and ed02 have said about candidates both in likelihood and what could be a good fit. Now Simeone isn’t my first choice and have to squint hard to see how he will fit, but for some reason Gary Neville triggered a thought process dilemma . Is there a possible scenario where Simone could work? I know steve r is a simione fan, and he likes the idea of someone who can put out a dogged style of play and the ability to snatch goals under pressure. There’s no doubt that athletico are a very difficult team to beat! In some ways the complete opposite to us and a team that plays a style we usually struggle badly against. With the right players purchased in the summer could simione work. Thoughts SLB.

{Ed001's Note - for starters he is about as likely to take the job as I am to get offered it as he is settled there now after a rough patch. But, to answer your question, yes I think he could do a very good job there because he is the complete opposite to Wenger. He would have the intensity and fire driving on players who have talent but just not the application to use it. The only issue is that it would not be as exciting a watch as you are used to. Simeone would have you competitive at the top end, I believe, in very short order.}

Is it a case of he’s too far out of our reach or could if Arsenal were intent he was the one (hypothetically ) could they make money talk?

If he came in and changed some of the dross in the defensive and center of the park I feel it would be amazing considering we have some fire power!

I think whoever comes in if they are to be successful is going to have make us more defensive initially to sort out that extremely weak and sometimes non existent part of our game.
More in control with a few less chances created but lots less chances conceeded per game, for while at least.
We are unlikely to find a Klopp to come in and make us exiting and competitive quickly.

I believe if simione was to come in he would have to bring a few players with him to get full potential.

I like simeone because he runs a club in a similar situation to arsenal as much as he takes on the bigger clubs and competes at the highest level. He has money to spend but other teams have more but he bridges the gap. He is savvy.

I'm trying to think of the last team that were rubbish at the back but outscored their way to the title?
It's difficult to remember one actually.
Leicester never had the best defenders but that season they were pretty solid and organised
In fact has there ever been a premier champions with an awful defence?

Gunner, i appreciate what you are saying but i'm not sure citeh have a brilliant defence, its just they aren't tested too much. When they are they are very beatable. Klopp sees to have found the key and they were undone in the fa cup and CL. They retain possession to keep the threat away, in the oppositions half. Bit most teams that win the league have a tight defence.

Excluding unavailable Guardiola and Mourinho, the manager I want would be Simeone, assuming he has learnt to speak English.
The ones that are being mentioned that I don't want are:
Low - Lacking recent club Management
Rodgers - Good shout, but too many fans against his appointment and we need unity.
Dyche and Howe - No!

My list would be:
1. Simeone
2. Vieira
3. Allegri

Good, but have concerns:
Enrique - Did well at Barcelona but it was with a great squad.
Ancelloti - Past his best?
