Overmars seems pretty perfect. I like the Arsenal history / link when we dont have much anymore.
Sanllehi looks like a complete tool after the fails with Sven & Monchi, the jokers Raul and Vinai aren't fit to lace Gazidis' boots.
Just bring back Sven.
Sven should've just stayed in his lane as the chief scout, instead of trying to muscle in on a position he wasn't suited for. He's left Dortmund and Arsenal unceremoniously so there's a possibility he's difficult to work with.
Overmars and De Ligt would be nice
By all accounts Sven was promised something by his former boss and then his colleague became his boss and had different ideas. That's nothing to do with poor structure that's just the way it is if the man at the top leaves. It could happen again if Raul leaves or is fired and it could happen again if his replacement leaves or is fired.
Meh, not at all bothered about this.
Thought he'd be a good appointment, in all honesty, until I read his reasons for leaving Roma -
Monchi decided to leave for a number of reasons including finding it difficult to cope with criticism and negativity surrounding Roma as well as failing to meet expectations in the transfer market.
Seems like he's a coward who can't cope under pressure. No surprise he's went to Sevilla who, with all respect, will have lower expectations than ours.
In which case he and Tuchel were a match made in Hell.
Please no Overmars, I've suffered enough through his incompetency at Ajax. All he does well is sell high. I want him gone at Ajax but not if it means he ends up here.
Whose bright idea was it to bring Sven in if he really is such a difficult character to work with?
Since I'm not familiar with the workings at Ajax, I was struck by this from Watts' article on Overmars' interest:
...at Ajax, Overmars predominantly looks after the business side of things, while recruitment is left to chief scout Henk Veltmate.
So if they do hire Overmars, they obviously will need a chief scout that they trust implicitly. Monchi, of course, would largely have overseen this are himself. It seems Overmars would be geared more toward administrative duties, supporting and assisting the manager, serving as a liaison with the board, etc. This makes me question whether or not Arsenal is seriously interested in him. I guess we'll see.
To be honest, I remember pushing the idea of getting Overmars here in a similar capacity at some point when he first joined Ajax. He definitely seemed like the sort of guy who could do well in such a role. After what he's done at Ajax from what I know-not in great detail though- he wouldn't be a bad candidate.
My idea was something like a double team between Overmars and Pires.
That said, I'm actually happy Monchi didn't arrive. I have serious doubts about him.
No one better to spot a great winger, at the very least
Overmars doesn't sound far away from what would be required - ability to negotiate good money from sales, encourages promotion from academy and pretty much has to ensure football philosophy at Ajax stays intact regardless of personnel - 3 things that would clearly be ideals Arsenal would like. Whether he's actually doing that well at Ajax is up for debate clearly, but I assume that would be the remit for the man we bring in from the job.
Bit worried about how fat Overmars looks in some of these pictures.
Need our technical director to show more self-control.
At Dortmund he had some conflict with Tuchel, which is not unusual but you can't really blame the club for his sense of entitlement when it came to getting a promotion here.
Monchi’s a bald prick, pass it on.
I'm not sad about missing out on Monchi. When was the last time we hired a bald guy we could trust? Bould will fix our defence....oh wait, not with Wenger in charge. Gazidis...say no more. Monchi? Disaster waiting to happen?
Now that you mention it i'm struggling to think of any bald guy we've had since Henry who has done well..
Anyway no hard feelings to Monchi it doesn't sound like him and arsenal were right for each other .All the best to him
