Hello everyone, I pretty much agree with everything that's been said about yesterday, but here's the 64,000$ question if Mikel is given the sack, WHO REPLACES HIM.

Agree0 Disagree0

Brendan Rodgers.

Ed001, what do you think of Brendan Rodgers as a manager?

Would he be an improvement on Arteta?

{Ed001's Note - maybe a slight improvement as a manager, but not by much. However as a coach Rodgers is much better than Arteta. He would not be someone I would consider though. Tactically he is far too easily outfoxed.

It is not even by a tactical switch bamboozling him, it is simply that he does not understand the tactical side of the game. For instance yesterday he left Firmino alone to do what he wanted and that is a basic error against Liverpool. When Bobby plays well, Liverpool play well. The reason people think Firmino is not playing well is because every team Liverpool have faced have concentrated on keeping him quiet.

It is the same in big games, he makes elementary errors with tactics and then never seems to have a clue how to change things. So not someone to look at for a club that has trophies as an aim.}

Have the posts been calling for his sacking? Poor again yesterday but I don`t want him sacked COYG.

Hi Ed, I know I’m dreaming but allergi is impossible right? I feel we need a manager with a huge personality with experience.

{Ed001's Note - I doubt he would be interested but you never know I suppose, he has been out of work for a while now and might be getting itchy feet.}

If an outstanding candidate becomes available we should definitely act bit failing that wait for the right man this time.

23 Nov 2020 13:26:55
Nagaalsman for me.

23 Nov 2020 16:38:09
Bruce Ricoh.

I'm old enough to remember The Middlesex Bottlers win the lge. They were managed by an ex Arsenal coach tho. Still give me nightmares

Hey saga, how’s it going?

23 Nov 2020 19:16:50
has to be nagelsmann for me. the way he can work different formations is crazy, the way he does his training sessions, the way he man manages are impressive. The only horrible thing about him is his fashion sense!

that aside, this is a question for Ed001,who is tactically the best coach in the world right now in your opinion? Who is tactically the best coach available right now that arsenal can get?

{Ed001's Note - that is a tough question. The best right now is difficult to say because it really depends on the circumstances of the match and how you judge them. For instance someone like Klopp has two excellent coaches alongside him who are the tactical brains, more so than he is. So you don't actually need a coach to be the best, you need a team that is very good around a coach who is willing to listen and learn. That is the problem I see with Arteta, for example, as he is arrogant and stubborn to a fault. He doesn't listen enough. Nagelsmann surrounds himself with the best people he can find and listens to them. Solskjaer listens to those around him, but they are not much help really.

But if I had the option to get any coach around to replace Klopp right now, I would pick Nagelsmann. So that is probably the closest to an answer. If I was Arsenal, I would look to teams like RB Salzburg and Brentford, how they surround a head coach with a system in place that he just has to get the team playing to. Then build something similar and look for a young coach who is open to new ideas and will listen to those around him. I would fear someone coming in for Lijnders as I think he could be a good choice. But that's what you need, a coach who is open and receptive to ideas, who will look to move Arsenal forward, just as Arsene did when he first arrived. Maybe bring in Rangnick to set it all up?

If I had to pick a name I would probably go for Marco Rose as the best Arsenal can get.}

thanks for the response Ed. I noticed that about klopp. he seems to be willing to incorporate the tactical concepts of his assistants. He seems to have refined his philosophy as well. Rangnick coming in means Edu would be out of the door because rangnick wants total control. I would certainly not be against that as I believe edu has not covered himself in glory. That could culminate in nagelsmann taking over the reins as he already enjoys working relationship with rangnick.

{Ed001's Note - I think you need someone like Rangnick to clean house and set up a proper system. He reminds me of Johan Cruyff in that respect, he was very good at building a club that could then be maintained more easily by coaches. Edu is a really big mistake and he is the first person who would be out of the door if it was up to me.}

I'd take poch as manager plays good attacking football.

24 Nov 2020 10:24:43
Nagllalllalalalalalll or however you spell it, in was all for arteta, but now I’m 50/ 50 as I don’t think he has a plan B, and I think we need somone who can sort this team out, but then again we need to invest heavily build the team around gabs and partey as they are the best signings we have made since Henry and veira, I think it’s unfair that the boss gets the brunt as he has to work with what we got and not get much money.
