    Conte -> Italy For the WC 2018

    I could be completely wrong, but the big manager moves to come are probably :

    Conte to Italy
    Ancelotti to Milan
    Enrique to Chelsea

    Wenger honours his contract
    PSG hold out for a free Pep in 2019
    Heynckes does his mates at Bayern a favour and stays on
    Real cling to Zidane but spend like idiots
    Sarri stays at Napoli, Löw at DFB, Allegri at Juve

    All other big teams are set for next season.

    "When Everton knock it long, they don't knock it long."

    "After Chelsea scored, Bolton epitulated."

    "Scoring goals is the hardest thing in football but doing it in a struggling team is double harder."

    "Football's all about yesterday, it's all about now."

    "They're not that very good, Napoli."

    When Everton knock it long, they don't knock it long."

    People just looked lost. Too many players looked like fish on trees."

    "You usually like to play promoted sides around Christmas. They have got two lungs at the moment."

    "Liverpool have just rolled the last bit of dice."

    "For this game only, Burnley won't change their style of play. And for certain other games too."

    "When defenders get ran at they're not as great as what they are."

    "They're lacking that real streak of bang."

    Great player but absolute mong.

    I don't know where all the Löw rumours come from. There's absolutely no indication, for years and years, that he's seriously thinking about quitting the DFB. Thing is basically the Jogi Löw show, which he's built around himself.

    Löw has got a contract until 2020...supposedly with a release clause after the 2018 WC. But the guy has never ever stated that he wants to leave the DFB. If he does continue his work, he's got a shot at least at three more tournaments, and with Germany's player pool, he's got a shot at becoming the most successful german national coach ever. Only needs to add one trophy of weight. He's at least looking at the 2020 EC.
    Before that I don't think he'll leave. He's so comfortably settled at DFB, they love him, no pressure on him whatsoever, great player pool, chances to win every tournament he enters, lots of free time. He loves it, says it all the time he's on TV. He flirts with a return to club football, sure. But that's it. Also, there's no one to take over from him.

    You also have to remember that most teams start their preseason around the beginning of July, but succesful national teams will stay at the WC until the late knockout stages in mid July. So any team looking at guys like Löw or Sampaoli have to take a late preseason start into account. It's much more likely these guys join clubs during the season because someone else was let go, or during a summer without a tournament.

    And then, there's Bayern. If Löw returns to club football, they'll be all over him. After Guardiola und Ancelotti, they desperately want a succesful german manager again.

    I have many doubts about Löw's ability to transition back to club football after so long with the national team. However I think if he did go back he'd have much more chance to be successful at Bayern than he would at Arsenal.

    When Wenger leaves Arsenal needs a coach who is fresh from managing a club and who is either incredibly ambitious and eager to step up a level or who is interested in translating their previous work to a new league. Howe/Jardim would fit the former, Allegri/Simeone would fit the latter.

    Napoli manager, I think Sarri? He seems pretty good.

    Allegri is good, Jardim deserves a nod for what he did at Monaco, Emery seems good too, also the young hoffenheim manager is apparently brilliant too.

    I have no idea who this Favre guy is but @BobP makes him seem like a genius so wouldn't mind him either.

    Would ideally prefer someone young but beggars can't be choosers. Same reason why it would be strange to turn down Ancelotti despite some of the issues we've seen from him.

    You just know it we are gonna mess this up... We are gonna approach some Klopp, Pochetto type manager who will achieve nothing but waist our time in our search for league glory...

    Enrique, Low, Ancelotti. Excuse me while I throw up.

    Just doesn't feel right.

    This would be an absolute nightmare, I'd prefer Löw or even Sean Dyche for that matter. **** off.

    He has been an utter failure at every role apart from Barcelona. I'd argue a donkey could coach that front three to success and I also felt like at times Barca played some uninspiring football in comparison to some of their sides of the recent past (Pep, Tito).

    You know what's crazy about all this manager chat....Unless the candidate is an absolute standout like Pep was when he left Barca, you never know what's going to happen. As a poster and a fan, your favourite candidate could be an absolute disaster and someone who you are mad that they appointed could turn out to be a legend. Sometimes it doesn't make sense but it just works out that way. Conte didn't have a great time before Juve but ended up being great for them. Villas Boas was viewed as a great choice by Chelsea and ended up being sacked shortly after.

    But if I could have my way and excluding anyone currently managing another top club in England i.e Pep, I'd go for Simeone.

    I don't know if simeone is a good fit for us he's a bit 2 defensive and doesn't really emphasize attacking play from his team. I'd rather allegri or jardim they are very good at balancing attacking play whilst still being strong defensively.

    The board messed up big time by offering Wenger a new contract after the 2nd Fa cup success, there was a plethora of managers available at the time who may of guaranteed success now we're going to have to take a gamble on our next appointment on whether it works out or not.
