Ed002 because everyone is talking about it I'll rather just ask you, do u know if Arteta is being considered for the job?

{Ed002's Note - I understand he is a consideration as he might be willing to work in the framework where he has minimal control over transfers.}

Agree0 Disagree0

One thing that makes me think it's not going to be arteta is that quite a lot of staff have been asked to leave. According to the papers anyways. Which sounds like someone set to come in with their own coaching staff. I'd imagine if that was to be arteta then it would've been the same set up just him taking arsenes place. Might be completely off the mark with this.

What do you think of this arsenal policy ed? Do you think it will work? It must seem strange to managers.

{Ed002's Note - Mainland Europe, or much of it, takes the approach of coaches primarily coaching and other dealing with players, transfers etc.. It can work.}

If it does happen, is surely a decision that at least lift some eyesbrows.
How can any other experienced options isn't willing to accept this new structure? Is this an absolute immovable stand? Surely if you want to get a deal through with someone of your preference you have to be open to negotiate your position a bit.
Still seems to me a very weird and risky, maybe silly, decision.
Ed002, I'm very grateful for all the insight you've beeing sharing with us, but can I ask for your opinion of Arsenal appointing Arteta as Wenger's era successor?

{Ed002's Note - I think it would be a mistakebe

So do I. The new structure shouldn't be a problem, but no way Arteta could be the only one who match the requirements.
Thanks again Ed.

Thanks for all your insight on this. It must be quite painful dealing with us Arsenal fans at a time like this.

With regard to Arteta, do you know if he is considered the stand out option for the Arsenal board as various media/ betting outlets would have you believe? Or is it still quite an open discussion about the possibilities for the next manager?

I struggle to understand how we are at a stage that an ex player with no managerial experience is the 'go to guy'. I'm not saying he would be bad, it just surprises me that this is what it has boiled down to.

{Ed002's Note - The Arsenal fans are fine right now. I am pretty sure the board don't consider options as "stand out" or otherwise. If you want stand out options it is the likes of Max Allegri and Carlo Ancelotti. If the club want Allegri there needs to be a shift of tact by the club but as I said that does not seem to be the case - hence Arteta is to the fore. It is risky.}

Extremely risky.

A lot of what you read (and yes, don't believe all you read) says that the club wanted a more united fan base which was part of the reason for AW leaving. For AW to cite the fan base in one of his interviews gave this some weight as well.

With the general reaction to Arteta being fairly divisive, it does make you wonder if they will bend to get in an Allegri type boss. Fingers crossed.
