I think Sanchez just needs to be on a team where he feels like everybody is as focused on winning as he is. Özil could stay on with Wenger here, Sanchez and Wenger's relationship seems damaged beyond repair.Özil? Yes.
Sanchez? No chance.
The only thing going our way with regards to Sanchez is the fact that there are no clubs in desperate need of his services. For example, I just don't see how he would fit in at City, the only reason they'd go for him is because they could not because they need him.
="yousif_arsenal, post: 4463163, member: 28884"]Pretty sure Wenger is going this summer we are preparing to be without him. Smart deals from Ivan.
Must admit my respect for bald people getting higher
Pretty sure this is so he gets a a full season with Wenger, same with the Dortmund guy, gives them a year to settle in ready for the Boss's departure end of 18/19.
"But when asked if Mislintat would be working mostly with Gazidis or himself, Wenger was quick to tell reporters: "With me. Ivan has nothing to do with buying players."
Guess Piet was right.
Anyone else feel like these changes were the reason Wenger took so long over signing a new contract? It sounds like this is something he has been pushing for.
Lol he was asking “what’s the director of football? Do they direct which way the football goes?” So I somehow doubt it is something he wanted. In fact I’m sure he didn’t considering how long he’s been in management without these sort of roles in place.
Maybe he agreed to it if it was on his terms or people he handpicked or something.
I think that's probably not a big deal. The squad - while lacking certain elements - is strong enough at the top of the field, it's just organizing our game everywhere else to bolster the current results we've been getting.Longer snippet here. Seems we aren't going to be making any big first-team upgrades in January unless it's an emergency.
Raul will be the main man IMO. He's basically a director of football. He's not got that exact title but that's what he is - I'd imagine he's the authority on all football matters currently. And he had that title at basically one of the most successful clubs of the last decade. I wouldn't worry too much about that.Yet to be convinced by this double act, I mean it hardly rolls of the tongue does it. They say they’ve known each other for 7 years so hopefully there is a good understanding there, but on the face of it it looks like two people thrust together and given the keys to the house when neither expected it.
Also, who represents us? At an executive level a club of our size needs representation at Uefa meetings and so on, who does that now? Do any other clubs operate with such a shared model?
