    El Duderino 99 Problems But A Mitch Ain't One

    With the above in mind, unless we get REALLY lucky with recruitment (coaching and player) and sales, I do think it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

    We have no one with proper ambition or proactiveness required to rebuild this club in a post Wenger scenario. Raul strikes me very much like a guy who'll be about the bottom financial line because Kroenke told him that's his job.

    Basically we'd need someone like Wenger (as in, someone who cares about the club) as our DoF. Maybe even the man himself, though I feel there needs to be a couple more years of distance to say the least before he's back at the club in any capacity.

    I do feel like we lost big on Mislintat, the man worked the long game and that is kinda what we need to be doing with the reported money we have at our disposal.

    Tite is fighting for his job right now. He NEEDS to win Copa América and that's a bad thing.

    Renato Augusto is being thought of for the Neymar spot, now that Jr. is injured. Basically because he's a leader and would tell people off, something that Tite is not willing to do right now.

    We have a great generation coming up we we're wasting valueable tournie time playing a 36 year-old Dani Alves and others that will not be here for the next world cup, instead of giving Fabinho, etc., time to experience life at the Seleção.

    We should be doing everything we can to have a competent team WITHOUT Neymar, so that when he plays, it's great. The dude's is a really good footballer. But when he doesn't we should be able to collectively step up.

    This is the mess that was 2006 all over again. It's Party FC up in there.

    Fabinho not being included is hilarious.

    Best DM in Europe last season.

    My only thing with Sven is that if the collaboration reports are true, he would absolutely not be the man for the job. It's key to a role of that stature to lead a scouting network and communicate. From just looking at the man, I can believe those reports but then again, never judge a book by its cover.

    Completely fabricated and made up ****. As Stuttgart's Sporting Director I've got a pretty decent and close impression now and ths tuff about him being not a teamplayer, being weird or not communicative is complete bollocks.

    I'm in three minds regarding this post and can't react to it. Its so hilarious it hurts. Its so interesting I have the Harry Kane expression causing me to drool while in deep thought. And I'm in awe of your insight and imagination. Its a very difficult state I find myself in but I do not know where I'd be without you.

    I doubt Brazil and Argentina FA are actually interested in doing well at football.

    Reading this stuff about Edu doesn't fill me with confidence for sure. Why don't we go after that guy Milan are looking to hire from Lille? He seems like the sort to build a proper team.

    Heard/read that Edu is pretty safe as he's apparently agreed to join Arsenal. But contrary to him wanting to stay until the Copa America is done, this source says Arsenal didn't/don't want to buy him out of his contract with the Brazilian FA, so the club just waits until after the tournament. As far as I can tell, the evaluation of Edu in that context wasn't very high, either, using a word that describes him as "a nice guy supposed to represent and shake hands without much operative influence" - at least currently.

    Also goes on to say that contrary to reports like Edu having basically worked two jobs and given Arsenal targets, this hasn't happened and the club is still lacking direction and staff personnel above the manager, e.g. a Sporting/Technical Director to really get things going.

    Goes on to talk about financial problems and I suppose it's that wage cap thing, which has along the lack of clear direction by the leadership hampered recruitment all season long.

    Take with a grain of salt, though.

    Kind of hate to bring this up again, but there was big, big talk about Sanllehi, Mislintat and Mertesacker doing exactly that in tandem.

    Who’s going to confirm such a thing? Wenger barely played the useless ****, tells you everything.

    That says nothing about StatDNA. Cagigao told the club Perez wasn't good enough but they signed him anyway because the window was about to close and they missed out on Vardy.

    Should've gone the loan with option to buy route with him.

    If this regime flames out which I fear it might got to start looking at Arsène for DoF.

    The man lost his way tactically towards the end but he’s such a name and a great footballing mind he’d give us an identity.

    Case in point is that we were actually a serious contender in the Mbappé sweepstakes ffs down solely to him.

    Bringing him now is undermining Emery but he needs to be at the club.

    Don't know if he'd be a good fit for a proper executive role a la DoF. He could be, but he's essentially a manager and he seems well off outside of managing by now.

    I could imagine him as an official advisor, though. Similar to what Matthias Sammer is doing at Dortmund since he doesn't want to work fulltime anymore since his stroke. Apparently that guy is very, very influential and highly valued by BvB.

    Yeah he should be our Cruyff figure, our modern identity as a club stems from him.

    Sorry WENGER is still the best tactician in world football.

    He was consistently undermined by the boards bad commercial deals and failure to get key transfer targets. Sure against billionaire oil teams, his tactics when implemented by players who were either not good enough or not possessing the right skillset, often came undone, but that's not his fault.

    Who cares about undermining Emery? He isn't the right guy for us. We have a cheap escape clause lets take it. The clubs interest should interest should supersede any manager's who will **** of the next minute some bigger club comes waving their chequebook.

    Agree. Ideally you would want someone conceptional and visionary like Rangnick as DoF, who looks after the big picture from top to bottom, a proven squadplanner, scout, analyst and recruiter like Campos or Mislintat as Technical Director, a business man with a passion for football and success as CEO running the club company silently in the background and someone like Wenger who knows the sport, the business, the club as advisor and guidance. Hell of a dream.
