According to Davud Ornstein Allgeri and Artetta are the front runners at the moment but others are still being considered.
The club is in no hurry to make a quick decision they could easily come to regret just as fast.
I think the club are doing the right thing in taking thier time even if at an absoulute push it meant having to go into next season with an interim management system in place until the right candidate becomes available.
As for Artetta i would support him and give him the benefit of the doubt but the fact he was such a big part of and captain during our cosy club wilderness years would worry me about him a lot.
I know he's been working with Pep but many of the players he was so close to and cosy with at Arsenal are still at the club and it would be extremely difficult for him to come in and say " don't do as we did, do as I say ". I'm not sure he would command the respect needed to be able to install the discipline we so badly need if we are going to see change where it matters most, on the pitch.

Gunner, if arteta is a candidate, it can't be as a no1 but if he is that well thought of (and i'm not sure he is) then surely as a no2, we have to be getting the best of both worlds, behind an allegri, ancelloti or benitez. With a view that after a period of time, if successful, then step up to no1. If he/ they are not, then, Next!

Like I say Steve if it came to it I'd give him the benefit of the doubt but I'd be disappointed to say the least.
I want as much distance as we can get from the cosy club mentality and the future as is possible to get.
But I'm sure the club is aware that the fans and the media will want to see a virtually instant upturn in passion effort and displine displayed by the players as of next season and any signs of lack of passion will be poorly received the fans and heavily analysed by the pundits.
I'm sure not many people expect instant success but it will be all eyes on the effort put in from day one.

if allegri comes, it means arsenal have ambition. There is no way allegri would come to arsenal unless they promise him a huge transfer kitty.

If a younger manager comes in, i have a feeling that means kroenke is not willing to splash the cash. I might be wrong but there is a bigger chance of arteta or viera accepting a reduced transfer budget than say allegri or enrique. Interesting times.

both guardiola and pochettino rate him highly. I have a gut feeling that one day he will make a great coach but of course there is little evidence to support that because he has never coached. If he becomes a coach i suspect xabi alonso will be his assistant as they have been childhood friends and both have been inspired by guardiola.

Arteta would be one of the biggest disappointments to me, of anyone, if he was entrusted with replacing wenger. For me it would show where the owners and board see this club. Not in the elite band. I would bw worried for our future. What draw for players would he be? Not for me at all.

Steve, He hasn’t even been announced and we have stared criticising him. When Arsene came here the press invited him with a tag line of Arsene-who. Whoever will be announced as a manager, we should back him up completely.

Sen, i am not criticising, i am stating. I don't want arteta and we got lucky with wenger and his ideas. We don't need to rely on luck again. My opinion and it is my opinion, with all that is available, why should we pick arteta, who wasnt even a club great and was very underwhelming for us as a player. Arsenal fc in the prem and europe is a very different animal to Afc 22 years ago. I don't want arteta.

{Ed025's Note - its too early for mikel imo steve, being a No2 is a different ball game to being the gaffer, i remember when colin harvey took over from kendall at everton and we were all happy with his appointment but he never quite made the transition, i say let him take on a lesser club and earn his spurs and then take a look at him for both parties sake..

13 May 2018 11:47:48
Agree Ed, i worry that this club is worrying more about money than success, if they take on the cheap option, with arteta. If he was that good anyway (which i don't see) why did we let him go to citeh. I agree no2 but that's it.

{Ed025's Note - very much so steve..

Arteta's biggest problem seems to be that people are against his appointment even before he has gotten started!

Unless he hits the ground running i think he will be in for a tough time.
