    Emery only knew about Guendouzi because his team played against him once. Sven wanted him while he was at Dortmund. One is because of luck and the other is a consequence of great scouting.

    Hopefully, he's got one last deal in him today and we can announce a talent like Francisco Trincao.

    A man can dream.

    Just don't go to the bad guys, Sven.

    Naa, let's not downplay us losing him, this isn't good.

    I just hope we know what we're doing.

    Hope he's turned up today and put a shift in. Hate to think he's slacking off just because it's his last day.

    Why am I not surprised.

    08/02/2018 It has been suggested to Sky Sports News that some differences of opinion with Spanish sporting director Sanllehi is just one of the reasons for Mislintat's departure, as well as a level of frustration over Arsenal's lack of financial firepower in the market. Arsenal were linked with some big-name players in the January window such as Perisic and Carrasco, but were only in a position to propose loan deals.

    :lol: The guy who has made his name unearthing players from random clubs all over the world, the guy whose remit would’ve been to find great bargains in the transfer market, was disappointed because we didn’t have £35m for Perisic. Find that REALLY hard to believe.

    Maybe he’s found out how little Kroenke’s willing to release next summer. We’ll have to wait for his autobiography, ‘Sven the going gets tough’ :lol:

    Classic reject him because he rejected me revisionism going on in this thread. Middle school mentality.

    Pretty disappointed with this. Our signings since his arrival have been pretty much spot on.

    Lichtensteiner's showings so far would suggest otherwise.

    A lot of people understandably upset regarding Mislintat's departure, but I posit that he was likely not going to be the head of recruitment anymore anyway. He wanted the Technical Director role, and the reason he's leaving is because he wasn't considered for the role. I'd speculate there was a lack of conjunction between him and Raul as a result of that, so he's going in a different direction.

    Likely, there was always going to be a new person heading up recruitment, but Sven would have been above that and into the role of Technical Director. Would that have sufficed?

    It's a disappointing turn of events but I don't think it's a given that it will turn out bad. In fact, I'm actually quite optimistic.

    I believe it, Perisic use to play for Dortmund which seems to be Sven's forte. I think he fell out with Raul cos we didn't want to spend 35 mil on Perisic, get Kagawa on loan and he probably wanted to get in a bidding war with Chelsea for Pulisic.
