So therefore winning the Champions League is easy?
Ahead of Arteta? Yes.Tony Pulis?
He'll give Martinelli more playing time will he?Ahead of Arteta? Yes.
Just put it this way, he wont have any favourite players (Willian for example) and won't play dross that impact the results. I'm sure he will give Martinelli more playing time and won't sub off Aubameyang after hitting the post.
Now tell me what other manager would make idiotic decisions like this? I can't think of anyone...Maybe Southgate.
Neither at Arsenal. Gnabry didn't create as much fuss at Arsenal compared to Martinelli.He'll give Martinelli more playing time will he?
Pulis is the man who said Gnabry wasn't good enough to play for West Brom...
He looked magnificent to me when he arrived in the first team... Anyway, he's proved how good he is now so it's an error on Pulis' part. Wenger wanted to keep him...Neither at Arsenal. Gnabry didn't create as much fuss at Arsenal compared to Martinelli.
I would compare Gnabry to Balogun at Arsenal currently.
Michael Laudrup announced his retirement as manager 1-2 years ago.want Laudrup. Want to see some *exy football.
I don’t get all this hype surrounding Rodgers, to be honest.Rodgers would be mad to come here. It will only be his vanity that will make him go for this poisoned chalice.
This - let's stop giving this stupid contracts like with PEA and Partey.At the moment, you need a manager who is not afraid to give young player chances not like a certain manager who refuses to give Saliba & Martinelli a chance, good man management to manage his players not a certain manager who doesn’t give his player second chance from his mistake like Guendouzi, and someone who can develop and improve players because Kronke is not Roman abramovic or sheikh mansour.
Good post and fair comments here. I agree about Galtier. He is surprising me as well. He was indeed a pretty defensive minded manager but having said that it think it was more a matter of the players he had at his disposal. With this Lille team, he is spoiled with talent and while he is not playing possession football, his team is very well structured, attack minded and play of the strengths of his attacking players (speed, fast transitions, technical skills). He is really having a great season.
One thing about Galtier, forwards tend to progress with him. He did a lot for PEA when he was a St Etienne. Jonathan David is really doing well under him as well at LOSC. Having said that, he is playing next to a monster called Burak Yilmaz. I am awe looking him play at 35.
I don't think fans will necessarily be on side after the Arteta experience. Calls are for a manager with a proven track record. I think for Ek's sake he should really get a guarantee for fans that none of the club legend players involved with his effort will go after the job.Would love Bielsa, Ten Haag, Hasenhutl or Sarri, but don't see any happening. They'd have us playing a good brand of football and all exude passion.
Not wishlist material, but what are peoples thoughts on Vieira? Club legend and French legend; the fans would be on side and he'd have every players respect.
Even if he only got Saliba and Guendouzi back on board, had Martinelli in the mix, Pepe playing and Aubameyang believing it would be worth it for 18 months!
