Here’s one for both ed01 and ed02. firstly ed01 how highly do you rate Ryan Sessegnon? What he’s doing is unreal in my opinion and must have to be the most promising England youth around . And ed02 what’s the low down regarding interest in the player. Thanks in advance SLB 👍🏻.

{Ed001's Note - Spurs are trying to sign him for the summer and he is about the best around, maybe Sancho would have an argument, in terms of England youth. One of the best in Europe and had the sense to stay at Fulham in the last few windows rather than moving to ensure he played regularly.}


1.) 25 Feb 2018 10:41:23
Are any clubs interested in James Maddison Ed? thanks.

{Ed001's Note - Wolves, Newcastle, West Brom and Brighton.}


2.) 25 Feb 2018 16:23:03
He appears to be very calm and level headed. if spurs take him it will prove to be another good spurs signing. Hopefully arsenal change targets and have a serious look . Thanks ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}


3.) 26 Feb 2018 12:59:18
It was strange to see Sessegnon not making the top 50 or whatever list of u-20 players with top potential that was out recently. Also Sancho didn't make that list. You do like him don't you Esq?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure Sessegnon did make the list mate. Sancho was a definite miss though.}


4.) 26 Feb 2018 16:25:35
Sorry Ed Sessegnon did make the list. My bad. Apologies.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, I thought he did. Would have been a strange list if he hadn't. He would have been much higher but for Fulham being outside of the top flight, as the level of competition they face made a huge difference to the ranking.}


5.) 26 Feb 2018 16:21:30
Maybe I missed him. Isn't Sessegnon English ed1? If so he didn't make the list I think and neither did Tierney at Celtic (maybe he is older to qualify) .

{Ed001's Note - I had to check but yes Tierney is 20 so wouldn't qualify as it was teenagers only.}


6.) 26 Feb 2018 16:36:22
I think Sessegnon will go on to have a great carrier not because I think he is hugely talented (not that he isn't) but he seems to have a good head, seems to have good people around him. He could easily have moved to a PL club and sat on the bench, play for u-23s but no, he made the decision to play regularly in a more competitive league than the reserves and reject more money and just for that also I hope Fulham get promoted. But that list didn't have the hugely reaped and rated Phil Foden. He is already a media darling in England yet he wasn't there? Do you think it's got anything to do with him being at City and not getting much game time ed1? Or is he too young?

{Ed001's Note - it is a lack of first team football. It was based on their importance to the team they played for and the level they were playing at etc. Hence why Donnarumma came top, as he is key and a regular AC Milan, rather than a sub or U23 player.}


7.) 26 Feb 2018 16:55:10
Oh and our boy Fosu Mensah got on the list but there was one name that really caught my eye and sets the example for all young lads coming through and that was Martin Odegaard, moved too soon to a big club rotted on the bench for a year or so and stagnated his development. Money over playing time at such young age was a terrible mistake. Never seen him play but hope he gets his career on track and gets a good enough shot again.

This whole aubameyang thing is turning into a circus.


1.) 26 Jan 2018 07:54:55
He will end up at Chelsea. Arsnal do the negotiating, find the fee and Chelsea swoop. Back to normal i'd say.


 

 

22 Jan 2018 11:47:22
Slightly off topic ed but what is your understanding around mustafi? Is juventus still an option or has the situation simmered in recent months.

{Ed002's Note - No, they have moved on.}


1.) 22 Jan 2018 19:30:06
Edd what's happening with Rugani is he still available and would of thought he would be starting ahead of benatia.

{Ed002's Note - This is the Arsenal page.}


 

 

31 Dec 2017 21:45:40
Goretzka allegedly going to sign a pre contract with Munich. Wether he ends up there or not anyone who's anyone knows he can't sign a pre contract with any club in Germany.

{Ed002's Note - Yes he can, if Shalke04 agrees. Anyone who is anyone knows that.}


1.) 01 Jan 2018 11:25:39
Haha now I do ed 👍🏻 Oh well there's another player I like gone elsewhere . Happy new year Ed.


 

 

31 Aug 2017 18:44:57
Mbappe gone lemar nit happening is it going to be a mad scramble for draxler. I love draxler more than lemar the only issue I have with drax is that he has tickets on himself and is a know whinge arse but beggars can't be choosers.

Aubameyang my man of the match today? Why? Because there was every chance we would have drawn or even maybe lost the game until he came on, once we retained the lead it looked a dead cert! He’s far to dangerous to be left to one man. The difference when he came on was apparent.


1.) 22 Apr 2018 21:27:38
Doesn't bode well for Thursday mate:- (.


2.) 22 Apr 2018 21:38:13
He's a top player.

Can't he pretend to be Iwobi on Thurs?

Just borrow Iwobi's shirt. Nobody will notice, hopefully 😁.


3.) 22 Apr 2018 21:40:58
Oh dags I made the same joke today at the game 😂😂😂.


4.) 22 Apr 2018 21:56:45
Sanogo 😂😂

It might be ok if Mhiki's back on Thurs, but don't think he will be.


5.) 22 Apr 2018 22:00:36
Hard to see how Iwobi will be at Arsenal next season whoever takes over from Arsene.


6.) 23 Apr 2018 02:44:44
We were playing without Ozil, Wilshere and Mkhitaryan. Hopefully, they will be fit for Thursday's match.


 

 

22 Apr 2018 20:38:15
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.}


1.) 22 Apr 2018 20:58:24
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?


2.) 22 Apr 2018 21:01:32
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!


3.) 22 Apr 2018 21:34:56
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.


4.) 22 Apr 2018 21:42:37
I believe if simione was to come in he would have to bring a few players with him to get full potential.


5.) 22 Apr 2018 22:15:02
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.


6.) 22 Apr 2018 23:02:28
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?


7.) 23 Apr 2018 00:33:02
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.


8.) 23 Apr 2018 02:53:55
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?


 

 

20 Apr 2018 20:58:56
Now would it be a mistake to instal or try for one of the more wildcard options to succeed Wenger? Someone like Nagelsmann or teddesco? Someone new and fresh someone who we feel we could give time? Ok if we look at other options (these ain’t mine) for example Rodgers he would have everyone waiting for him to screw up and not take to him, Benitez much the same! Although I would massively prefer Benitez I can still see him been a harder sell, and agian we would be expect results quicker again jardim I would like this but we would expect quicker results. I like the sound of naggkesman and teddesco, would also like jardim, sarri or allegri . Out of the bums been mentioned I would have to take Benitez. I think we will make a decent choice.

Question for ed01 as I always love his opinion on coaches. Do you think the standard of coaching has improved? Do you think that it’s actually cool to be a coach in the modern game and people are treating it more of an art form if you will and be living there’s that chance to become involved in the highest level of football when you know your football skills are modest.

Not best at wording stuff hope it makes sense
SLB.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure the standard has improved, but it has become more complex and involved tactically. Coaches are more like chess players these days, whereas in previous days they were actual coaches who taught their players to think for themselves. Now they produce automaton they move around a board who need constant tactical input from the sidelines to know what to do when something changes. For me, in a lot of respects, coaches are worse, in others they are much, much better.

By the way, I think you are in the perfect position to take a chance, there are so many dross teams in the Prem that a top half finish is achievable with dags in charge, let alone someone with a clue about football ;-)


1.) 21 Apr 2018 06:35:10
i think it's a general shift of perspective and a realization, that instead of being a game of 11 individual players, football is a game dependent on a holistic system, it's more fluid than chess, since in chess the pieces are fixated to a set number of squares in any given position, a footballer can rotate 360 degrees to pick out the best possible "move" for him, so it might even be more complex than chess (not sure how you'd count the possibilities here though) , obviously this could never have happened without cryuff, the only negatives i see is that because of his "total football" ideal the media seems to push any non possession based tactics under the rug claiming its "anti football" it's utter dross, since that "anti football" uses cryuffs version of football which utilized zonal marking etc to strengthen defense etc, which is why i like mourinho more, it's what people mean by a "strategic depth" of a position, it doesn't have to look pretty on paper to be very rich in terms of how it operates.

{Ed001's Note - Cruyff never wanted football to be like this and he would hate what Pep does with his constant instructions. Cruyff always believed coaches should coach players to play and understand the game and figure out how to make the tactics work on the pitch. He would get them to sort out between themselves how to defend set pieces, despite what he would say, it was not because he had no interest, he just wanted them to be able to think for themselves, so when an opponent does something different, the players are able to adapt without having to look to the sidelines for instructions. You saw what happened when Pep was sent off at half time - his team fell to pieces without his tinkering. If the coach was truly great, his players would have rose to the occasion, not floundered like fish out of water.

And your comments about it being more complex is exactly the opposite to Cruyff's thinking. He always said it was simple and the mistake people made was trying to complicate it.}


2.) 21 Apr 2018 06:53:15
when i said "complex" i was comparing it to chess ed, i think in chess after 40 moves there are more possible positions than there are galaxies in the universe, and that's because over the 64 squares there is only a fixed line of squares that a piece can move, an individual footballer however has a range of options going in a full 360 degree circle and you'd have to think that there'd be more options for a footballer after you'd consider that, though it's not exactly dependent on "moves" but that was the gist of my comment, i think what he meant by not complicating stuff would be not to mash up gameplans and use a simplified game plan dependent on selective weaknesses

also, players thinking for themselves have a major flaw, they can be stupid, you'd have to admit that you can't exactly transform a player from the championship to a level of intuition ( i dislike the term intelligence, intelligence implies calculation while intuition is something that'd come more naturally to a footballer) where he'd fit into the dutch team 30-40 years ago, which is why teams with players who are not on the level of manchester city or any of the bigger clubs simply can't play that way.

{Ed001's Note - I disagree, you only have two objectives. Score a goal and prevent a goal being scored. It is not that difficult or complex in reality, but coaches like to mystify it and create complexity to make themselves seem more important. The best players are those that teach themselves how to play anyway, the George Best's, the Messi's, even Ronaldo, it is not what they are coached that makes them so great, it is what they do themselves.

Playing like Man City is not what anyone should aspire to, every team should aspire to playing to the strengths of the players it possesses, whatver they may be. You would be surprised how much of the intelligence or intuition is simply being stifled by coaches, particularly at youth levels, who obsess over making their role seem more important and focus solely on winning rather than what is best for the players they are coaching. When you hear someone like Gerrard talking, you realise that he is utterly unsuited to youth coaching, he talks in terms of results on the pitch, not results off it. Not improved touches or a player learning to deal with being marked or learning how to make the right runs.

Football is not complicated. You only have to think about two things, when your team has the ball you look to create opportunities for your team to score. When your team has not got the ball, you look to stop them doing the same. All a player should need to be given is the basics, everything else should be coming from the player, otherwise we will just end up with a bunch of robots with no personality, which is bloody close now.

When you watch a Guardiola team it is constantly being instructed on when to run, where to run, how far to run, who to pass to etc, it is micro management and why he never lasts long. It is like having your boss constantly looking over your shoulder at work saying do it this way, no that way, now this way etc. It is ok when you are first there and learning ajob, but it soon becomes tiresome and you want a bit of freedom, such as an Ancelotti manager gives players.}


3.) 21 Apr 2018 07:27:11
" The best players are those that teach themselves how to play anyway, the George Best's, the Messi's, even Ronaldo, it is not what they are coached that makes them so great, it is what they do themselves" are you honestly telling me, that if i work as hard as ronaldo i could achieve a millionth of what he's been able to do across his whole career? no, that's a matter of talent and innate intuition.

"Football is not complicated. You only have to think about two things, when your team has the ball you look to create opportunities for your team to score. When your team has not got the ball, you look to stop them doing the same. All a player should need to be given is the basics, everything else should be coming from the player, otherwise we will just end up with a bunch of robots with no personality, which is bloody close now. "
well then i could argue that to acheive those two objectives you have to build up your game plan targeting specific weakness and strengths of the opponent, see how mourinho exploited liverpools defensive weakness (i. e in lovren) , they scored two goals by doing the same thing twice, lump up the ball to lukaku and it'd set up rashford to score, you have to keep in mind that in specific areas of the pitch some teams are weaker and in some others there are a stronger, i merely used manchester city as an example because, even if it was a game based on what the individual would do against say newcastle they'd wipe the floor with them for most games, why? because simply they're more talented and they have a better footballing intuition

about the gerrard thing, i agree with that, those are things a young player should have drilled into him, i'd also like to take a jab at why exactly great players don't make good coaches, it's a matter of introspection, i doubt they ever think "woah why am i so good and aware of all these things going around the pitch and others aren't what do they exactly lack that i have? " because again that'd require some sort of intelligence, i have my qualms with guardiola because he's not resourceful enough, i find it funny how people say that mourinho is the one who needs players finely tuned for a specific position when guardiola won't tweak his team to accomodate for other players (like kolarov and zabaleta last season)

"All a player should need to be given is the basics, everything else should be coming from the player, otherwise we will just end up with a bunch of robots with no personality, which is bloody close now. " i agree with that, but the point is, would your idealized team compete with a team with highly efficient robots with no personalities who would pick on the individual weaknesses of players because they can't cover up their weaknesses because the absence of micromanagement from managers.

{Ed001's Note - on the first part, you have no point to make, no one said anything about talent, it was a discussion about coaching in football, not about some guy sat on a keyboard and coaching. If they don't have an innate talent already, they would not be there to receive the coaching. So it is irrelevant what would happen to you if you worked hard. No idea what you are even doing bringing that into the conversation, it is utterly irrelevant.

Again seems the point is missed, in fact I have no idea what point you are trying to make as you are talking about something simple and trying to make it sound complicated. What is so complicated about telling a player to lump it long to one player who is good in the air and has the beating of his opponent? That would be simple basics imo. Nothing complicated about it at all. What worries me is that Mourinho should need to tell his players to do that, I would want them to spot the weakness and play at it. The moment it stops being a weakness it should stop being utilised, unlike the way City played in the first leg at Anfield against Liverpool when Pep had picked out TAA as a weakness and they constantly, throughout the 90 minutes, tried to attack him, even though Sane was having no joy. No one in the team thought to say 'hang on, this isn't working, let's try something else'. They just kept on plugging away at it and it cost them the game.

Of course the idealised team would win. Precisely because the ideal is that a personality is able to figure out ways to overcome a weakness innately while the robots need constant instruction from the sidelines to react. It is why a martial artist does repetition of their moves, to allow them to become instinctive and cut out thinking time. They just do it, rather than think, then do. That is what you are aiming for in an idealised time. Players who just do it, players who are gelled as a team so instinctively know where to put a pass for their mate to get to as they know he will already have seen the space and be moving into it etc.}


4.) 21 Apr 2018 07:29:06
i'd also like to remark it seems like you're arguing more on the point of football losing its "soul" as a game than how efficient the two approaches are.

{Ed001's Note - no I am not. I am arguing that a team working together with players able to think for themselves will beat a bunch of robotic players more often than not. Which is why Barcelona were so much more successful than other clubs over the last 30 years or so. It is why Ronaldo can lead Madrid to success over a very efficient Juve side on multiple occasions.}


5.) 21 Apr 2018 07:56:06
the first part was about how a player can't simply think like any of those great players because they're in most cases not up to the intelligence level they're up to. something you were arguing against and then i used my own example.

second of all
"Again seems the point is missed, in fact I have no idea what point you are trying to make as you are talking about something simple and trying to make it sound complicated. What is so complicated about telling a player to lump it long to one player who is good in the air and has the beating of his opponent? That would be simple basics imo. " you could scale up that example and use it for other areas on the pitch, if a teams midfield is weaker you could try to play around that specific portion of the field, rather than the player just figuring that detail out for themselves.
"I would want them to spot the weakness and play at it. " yes, and how exactly would you teach someone to do that? you'd offer them up with the thousands of examples already played and tell them this is what they're supposed to do in that position, which again means that they won't exactly think for themselves unless there's someone yelling those instructions out, which was the whole point.

"The moment it stops being a weakness it should stop being utilised, unlike the way City played in the first leg at Anfield against Liverpool when Pep had picked out TAA as a weakness and they constantly, throughout the 90 minutes, tried to attack him, even though Sane was having no joy. No one in the team thought to say 'hang on, this isn't working, let's try something else'. They just kept on plugging away at it and it cost them the game. " then pep should have had a plan B.
"Of course the idealised team would win. Precisely because the ideal is that a personality is able to figure out ways to overcome a weakness innately while the robots need constant instruction from the sidelines to react. " you're running in circles here again, you can't teach a player to do exactly that, not all players are as talented as those players and lack the intelligence to make those decisions, they're mentally inept to be able to make those decisions on the pitch, because they can't figure out how to make use of that right there and then. which is my point.

{Ed001's Note - but your example is irrelevant, no one said that anyone can be as good as those greats, you were completely missing the point and still are. The point was that it was not coaching that made them great, all you did was agree without even understanding what you were discussing.

You do not offer them examples. This is not a schoolroom. They learn from experience playing the game and seeing what works and what doesn't for themselves. A good coach should only need to use the odd guiding word here or there to just point out what didn't work and what did. You shouldn't need to sit there with examples to look at, they will learn far more by doing something than they will by looking at someone else doing it. How did you learn to play football? I bet you didn't have to be sat down with the rules before you went out and kicked a ball did you? I really do not get your argument, it is so out of date like the crap that held back English football for 50 years. Stop instructing players and start coaching and they will be better players for it.

No you are running in circles based on ignorance. You can teach people to think for themselves, no matter how bright or otherwise they are, everyone is capable of making decisions for themselves if they are given the chance to do so at a young enough age. I am done, this is pointless. You are the one who doesn't understand and are constantly missing every point I make. There is no point continuing.}


6.) 21 Apr 2018 08:01:52
also, just to add a funny thought, if every player on your team was actually as intelligent as you say they would be then they'd be more akin to robots with highly efficient AI's who could make the most profitable decision from the get go.

{Ed001's Note - that is just incredibly ignorant. AI is an attempt to get computers and robots to think like humans. There is a reason why we aim to do that, because the human thought process is so much more advanced than anything computers can do, in terms of decision making. The key being decision making is what makes the difference on the pitch. Again another thing that you have completely missed the point on.}


7.) 21 Apr 2018 08:14:01
Do you think that the micro management coaching is more effective though Ed, because wenger had belief in his players and would rarely change tactics in a game himself, but then the players never took it upon themselves to adapt to the game either and you mentioned anchelotti as a manager that offers freedom yet his way didn't seem to work as well at bayern after pep.

{Ed001's Note - Ancelotti's way didn't work because he didn't even bother to train the players hard. They were going off to a local park after training to do some actual training each day.

Micro management is never more effective in the long term. Short term it is an effective solution to get through a difficult period, but then you need to gradually give more freedom or you end up with constant tension and things fall apart. Wenger was like Ancelotti, he gave too much freedom. It is like anything, balance is the key in the long term, short term you might need to give lots of freedom or micro-manage to get through, depending on the moment, but overall you need to have balance. It is not easy whatever way you choose, you might have some players that need someone overlooking their every move, while others need to be given freedom to perform to their best. Someone like Nedved, for instance, did not need someone watching him to make sure he trained properly, he would go straight home after training to use his personal gym to improve his fitness. Whereas some like Gascoigne needed constant watching and a firm hand.}


8.) 21 Apr 2018 10:00:37
Ed,
I agree with the above - arsenal study players a lot. Why didn’t they bring players in with the right discipline and professionalism and leadership to fit Wenger’s style. the team he inherited had it and he added players with those attributes - Vieira, Henry etc
We seem to have lost our way and signed players who couldn’t cope with the laissez faire approach and Wenger didn’t micro manage when appropriate and the board just let it happen
It’s frustrating as you could see the change in players and attitude but we kept signing them hence not knowing if we would thrash someone or be thrashed
A big puzzle to me.

{Ed001's Note - that would be poor scouting and recruitment policy. I have no idea why they did not change it, makes no sense to me. Just buying the best players does not make the best team, you need the right blend and Arsenal have not had that for a long time. I would suggest it was down to Wenger, sadly. He was the one deciding who to buy and what type of player. I do think he did try to bring in a bit of bite latterly with Xhaka, but it was a poorly scouted choice.}


9.) 21 Apr 2018 10:13:46
Sanogo mate am all in for tedesco or nagelsmann both would be great. Not sure who the better coach between the two is, but they went to the same coaching schoool at the same time and tedesco finished number one in their class.


10.) 21 Apr 2018 10:24:08
Very true -Thomas Vermalen and Kos as two I’ll dusciplined centrehalves were the perfect example. You needed a Terry / Adams or Kweon type demander in there to keep shape. Once the disciplined Gilberto left - the midfield lost its shape. Song should have been the one but lacked discipline to stop him running up field trying to grab the headlines and big contracts. We suffered most in those two roles as that’s where we neve recruited players who had that leadership / discipline / personal sacrifice for the team may be a David Devin would have forced that agenda more as he knew Wenger best so knew his weaknesses.

{Ed001's Note - that was the big loss for Arsenal, losing that partnership at the top of the club. Dein and Wenger were a great combination.}

Just seen on sky sports “Celtic won’t stand in the way of Rogers to arsenal” I bet they bloody won’t you could put a monkey in a suit and pay him a banana a week and still win the SPL, which begs the question as to why Celtic aren’t looking at that as an option. I don’t understand why in certain circles people are raving about the job he is doing up there. God could you imagine the piss taking on the terraces if this was Arsenal’s master plan. We would all be begging for Wenger to come back.

Please God, not Rodgers. Please.

Bookies favourite as well. But that’s with sky who have been reporting as such, bet con hopefully. Is it me or do others find it unethical that a news vendor can also run a bookies?

I think we need to start an Rodgers out campaign on Sunday!
Seriously I'd be really pissed off if they even spoke to him let alone appointed him, Charlie Nicholas on sky sports raving about him was actually excruciating.

Rodgers In!


5.) 20 Apr 2018 15:44:59
I hope not Rodgers.

There’s every chance TOT66 if poch leaves this summer. Real will get him when they want.


7.) 20 Apr 2018 16:04:58
Wenger back in rather than Rogers.

If this is true then strange time I would have thought after EL would be best time. But maybe will spur everyone on. Big respect to the single most important man in the clubs history please never forget that.

Thanks boss love you lots x.

One Arsene Wenger there's only one Arsene Wenger! Absolutely Arsenal Legend like no other.
Very much mixed emotions right now.
So happy we can move forward again but at the same time feel a bit emotional.
Now let's ALL Get behind him 200 million % and give him the best send off football has ever seen.
Comon you Arsenal.

I’m so glad after the thread the other day. He may be stubborn but he’s not stupid. So now the fans can come back. I wonder if it was in his mind that fans may not turn up on Thursday?! At least we’re all united again boys.

I'm glad he did it at this time hopefully it will have the desired effect and get the crowd and players on board. I feel if we had lost to atleti and he then announced it everyone would be a bit meh and there wouldn't be the same feeling of good will. And if we won the EL and he stepped down it would be the end of the season with no time to give him a good send off and appreciate his last games in charge.

I want more than ever to win the europa now but no matter what happens Thursday sing loud and proud.
One Arsene Wenger

If i can get tickets I would love to take my grandson this Thursday.

The war is over now let the celebration of the greatest Arsenal Legend of all time begin

One Arsene Wenger.

I should imagine the young innovative coaches may be deemed as not ready yet by the people selecting. Ancelotti may not be my first choice but he will be a sensible choice.

Thanks ed. Some players on that list I like a lot . Max Meyer seems like a no brainer. Fabinho looks a good option, I like Jorginho but I feel he is a step to far for arsenal. I like harry maguire a rough diamond perhaps but I feel we need to brush up on our defensive coaching, maybe comewith the new head coach. I’ve watched federicks a few times and like the look of what I’ve seen, really like his team mate sessegnon but feel again that we won’t be able to do that as he looks a real talkent. Fekir I would blow my load
Thanks again.

I really don’t understand your getting at “some” of the supporters having little knowledge on football and I don’t know what point your trying to argue? Nagglesmen and Tedesco both look exciting prospects, but they won’t be considered by arsenal and most certainly won’t be appointed, candidates who will be considered by the board and have a good chance of the role have been mentioned by “some” of the clueless posters. So if nagglesmen, Tedesco or even tuchel don’t get the Arsenal job then it would appear that it is you who knows little about football. Now I like most on here are not splitting hairs over the quality of nagglesmen or Tedesco. You have your opinion and it’s not a bad one and other people have their opinions but to start saying that other people know little about football maybe a little introduction to yourself about what it is you have done for us to consider your opinion as one to take seriously.
Have you been around the coaches you are championing? Have you seen training sessions? Have you been to a wealth of games live in different leagues around Europe. Have you been doing all of the above for many years? Now I’m not been funny but I would love to hear it. Because the people who will be choosing our next coach will have done the above and then some.

Just a little something for you to think about 👍🏻.

I watch serie a, don’t understand the ins and outs of coaching, but as prospects go it’s very understandable that they are far too inexperienced for the board to consider at this point in their career, I have watched bundaliga a lot this year and agree both nagglesman and Tedesco could well be great coaches at the top level. But I think the board will pick someone who isn’t going to be a risk. Just looking at the general opinion across this site alone suggests that it would be a difficult sell and with how the vast majority of arsenal fans are feeling the next appointment has to been seen as sensible.

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

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!
