To any of the dates who wish to answer your reply is greatly appreciated. After ed002 gave a very indepth response of possible replacements to Mr Wenger I was surprised to see no mention of Luis Enrique! Does anyone think he is in with a serious shout?

{Ed002's Note - As a date I am happy to deal with this. Luis Enrique is available and has, to my knowledge, spoken with two sides about vacancies for a head coach in the summer. Neither of those sides were Arsenal. If they have approached him, which they can because he is not attached to a club, then I am not aware of it - hence my not mentioning him, nor Brendan Rodgers, nor Remi Garde.

If Arsenal were to bring in LE as a manager it would be a soft and safe option and not a way forward. His ability to change and succeed with a 5th or 6th placed side in a competitive league is near zip.}

Thanks date002 apologies for the typo! 😁 Personally I had a feeling that he would be the next manager due to his sabatical and Arsenes short term contract. I now though have no clue as to who would be best. Do you think maybe pep may get the sack for having an unsuccessful season with just the 2 trophies? 😋😋.

I think you’re right Ed regarding your view on Enrique. I think arsenal need some fight and personality back in the squad and that starts from the top. You’ve said more I’m sure than you’d like, that Simone isn’t an option or at least not one to bank on. May I ask the reason why that is? Does he not favour a move to the Prem or is it just Arsenal?

Hi Ed002 - I have reservations in respect of the fact that he was successful at Barcelona and hasn't recent experience of a 5th or 6th place team. However, he was cutting his teeth in management prior to taking over as Barcelona manager in 2014. He would be a risk. Other than Simeone, I can't think of a stand out candidate and that is dependant upon Simeone wanting to leave Atletico and having learnt to speak English.
My next two choices would be Vieira and Allegri, but both raise concerns.
No's - Low, Rodgers, Howe and Dyche.

{Ed002's Note - I agree with you about Enrique but I have been told over the weekend that there is a nervousness felt by some at the club that Arsenal may take that soft option. Simeone can speak English to a reasonable level and has been taking lessons for perhaps three years, but as I have already said, I would discount him. Vieira lacks experience and is likely only of interest to Arsenal fans because he is an ex player. Maybe give the job to Carlo for three years and then bring PV to work with him in the final year before taking over, but right now not a good choice. Max Allegri would be a good option and he has support at the club - but I am not so sure the job would interest him.}
