Massive reservations about Arteta if he is the one but I will get, behind him 100% if he is the one. Yesterday he was over the finishing line and the bookies had allegedly stop taking bets, and I must admit I had resign myself to him being the new coach but today I am not to sure. I am just wondering have the board getting cold feet giving the job to such a young and experience manager and if that's type of manager/ coach they wanted surely Nagelstam or Paddy fitted the bill better. I am 100% Viera man but that appears not to be happening so in my view if it someone else its got to be Ancellott or Emery or a as a outside bet Rafa. Just like to say about the posters voicing their opinions about the Wenger out brigade . They are entitled to their opinions but it was clear in the last few seasons that despite 3 Fa Cups which at other clubs would have earned him a long long contract our form in the prem/ champions league was way below from what we should expect and first and foremost football is a results business then its absolutely clear in my mind it was time for Arsene to go.
As I said earlier whoever it is we all need to get behind him and the team for what could be a helluva rollercoaster of a ride.

Mate I brought up the point that ed025 had said previously that people should be careful what they wish and I said that because panic would appear to have set in about who comes next rather than simply waiting to see.

Having supported Wenger for a long time I’m 100% glad he has hung up his coat and wanted him to do it after his last contract ended. I believe the vast majority did.

I have a manager I’d love to see here but ultimately it’s not my place to employ whoever so it’s a game of wait and see and ignore the utter row locks written in the press.

{Ed025's Note - can you enlighten us to who that is stoner?..

If it does turn out to be Artetta ( which personally I don't think it will be) then none of us can genuinely have an educated opinion on his management ability because he's niether failed or succeeded anywhere before.
As for Arsene well I think the last decade has shown us he unfortunately is no longer capable of making Arsenal competive over 38 games with the points difference between us and that seasons champions never being in single figures once.
Arsene unfortunately left us in no question as to his current ability to take us forward while Artetta is certainly not the people's choice but there is a possibility he could get us back in the running and that's something Arsene couldn't offer anymore.

{Ed0333's Note - the question is can Arteta handle the pressure of a club the size of Arsenal and the vitriol of the jokers on Arsenal TV? As you say gunner we’ll never know until he has the job

I'm a Wenger man, but have waivered over the past 12 months or so.

He has, and always will, have my total respect and admiration, but as G62 has pointed out previously, no title challenge, not even close, for past 14 seasons, meant it was time to move on managerially.

If I had to list my top 10 managerial choices, Arteta would be 11th. But, if appointed, would always get my support, albeit through gritted teeth.

Sorry ed025, it’s Allegri mate but if we are going to gamble, which Arteta would be, then it’s Nagelsmann for me.

Don’t want Arteta, Ancelotti, Enrique or Fat SAM!

{Ed025's Note - i like allegri stoner, i dont think he will come if its a tight budget though mate..

For me in this big bad footballing world, we don't need a rookie to drag us out of the dolldrums we are in. It is a big job but ot is also a job you can look at annd say, if we sort this and this out then obvious improvement will come. Get the guy to fit the bill. Then see what happens. We haven't got to be "brave" gazidis, just sensible.

I don't know one person, friend or family who think arteta is a good appointment, in fact some of the reactions have been worrying.

16 May 2018 20:54:05
But Steve some of those friends will be saying I always thought he would be good IF he gets the job at all and should he finish top 4 next season.
Artetta certainly wouldn't be my choice for many reasons but it's ridiculous to write the man off SHOULD HE get the job at all.
Those who are getting outraged without anything going wrong simply because Artetta isn't their choice are getting upset about absolutely nothing but a silly rumour that no credible source has mentioned as about to happen.
Didn't Sky tell us Higguain was actually at the Emirates having his Arsenal medical at one point 3 or 4 years back:-)
Very reliable information that was :-)

16 May 2018 20:13:51
As you say Ed0333 mate he will have to be thick skinned from day one because Arsenal fan tv won't be short of critics even before he makes a single decision.
Agree 100% Dags, whoever the new man is give him the benefit of the doubt until at least until he shows genuine signs of being incapable.

The really strange thing is That Artetta is a closer to being Arsenal manager ready than Henry but if Henry was suddenly hot favourite people would be very very excited rather than out ragged ;-) which is difficult to understand other the fact that people let their emotions influence thier common sense judgements.

16 May 2018 22:38:18
Gunner that last bit you said, is just a fact and that influences a lot. If he was an arsenal hero or legend, he would get more support, its just a fact of life. He may or may not be a future legend but that will be done without the initial hope and expectation, rightly or wrongly.
