    I have been on the Arteta bandwagon from the get go. I would happily take my chances with him if we don't finish in the top 4 this season. Having said that, Gallardo is not only building an impressive resume but has also been playing some great and entertaining football at River Plate. I really think he is ready to move to Europe at this stage. He is definitely one of the best managers in the world now.

    And you have to admit that his strategy against Liverpool worked for half the match. We got done by a set piece. If we had Bellerin/Tierney on the pitch we might have got a result.

    I think Freddie would be a good interim head coach if Emery gets sacked. The market doesn't have an abundance of available elite coaches, but it shouldn't be hard to find someone better than Emery.

    Also, Sol Campbell probably doesn't yet have enough experience to be considered for the top job, but I think it would get great if he became part of our coaching staff if/when Emery is gone. Looks like he did an impressive job coaching Macclesfield Town: https://thesefootballtimes.co/2019/...ality-deserves-a-chance-at-the-highest-level/

    With Edu and a few Spanish speakers here, it would make sense .

    Our squad is quite reminiscent of the old Argentinian sides too with flying WFs. We even have a pretend Maradona.

    Just hope we don't get a 4-letter name like Tite, Tata or the likes.

    How long are the ABE clan going to give the next manager before they start to clamour for his sacking? He’ll need time to bed in and sign a few of his own players.

    So I’m thinking about ten games? Right? :lol:

    Or perhaps they are waiting for the return of Wenger, who was quoted this week as saying “you will see me on the bench again soon”

    Good to see the 'cut back' gag has done it's time... He wants to play winning football. The players we have will make it pretty when they're all together. Hang in there, you'll love it. You'll be able to put a nice little label on the style he's given the team too ;)

    The point is they are both philosophy managers. It takes time to implement a philosophy as you need the players to do it. The difference is they had the balls to implement it even with players that couldn't do it. Meaning they could sell and buy accordingly.

    What is Emery trying to do? He has a squad with quality and options. Yet he constantly tinkers to the point where we have no idea what the line up is let alone the formation.

    He isn't on the same page as the ownership and I wouldn't be surprised if they have identified our next manager.

    They promoted Freddie and publicly made the statement of bringing youth through. Last season he played his full strength team in the Europa league. The club are not allowing him to do that this season. We have bought players he can't even use yet like Saliba.

    However the biggest statement is Miki. He played him ahead of Nelson and Willock vs Sp**s. He even had one more sub and didn't use it. We almost lost the derby because we have a manager who can't set up a midfield and picks error prone Xhaka because he is tall. Meanwhile Ceballos is having constant man of the match performances and got dropped because he didn't run the show vs Liverpool. A game where our manager sent us out to get pumelled and play on the break.

    So what does the club do? They get rid of miki and say, right, now you can't use him. Use Nelson, Saka and Martinelli ffs.

    Emery should be able to get us top four and then we are ready for a philosophy manager.

    Wenger said that? Get him back here! Now with Don Raul giving him a great squad and him not having to do everyone’s job we will be great again. :drool:

    Next managerial interview process.

    Candidate: Well you see I believe I can get the best out of these players, as you can see from my previous job I used a 4-3....

    Raul/Vinai: Right, right enough about that. Do you think it is nature and nurture which forms a persons personality?

    Candidate: Erm, what has this to do with my abilities as a football manager?

    Raul/Vinai: You see we're not just looking for any old manager, we're looking for a PHILOSOPHICAL manager! Next question, Is it Time? Is it the condition and fulfillment of your soul? Is it death? Or is there no meaning to anyone's life at first..., instead do you have to create your own meaning?

    Candidate:.........

    I don't know about all these exotic names, but I think Howe should be given a chance. He's playing attractive football at one fourth our budget. I suspect United will go for him before us though.

    My only worry about Howe is that I wonder what he'd be like out of his comfort zone. Everything is perfect for him at Bournemouth, he's a hero there and he has a job for as long as he wants it. Without him the club mightn't even exist and now look at them now (ok I know their owners have helped a lot). He went to Burnley at one stage and it just didn't work out for him.

    I could probably be way wide of the mark here but he also comes across as a bit "nice", like he plays everyones friend and I know that might work at a club like Bournemouth but at a club like Arsenal it's completely different. Not only that but the expectations are a lot higher, as we've seen the pressure comes quite quickly, sometimes even winning games isn't enough. So for me I still think there's question marks over him in that regard but it's almost impossible to say how he does. I suppose we'll find out sometime as I've no doubt he'll get a bigger job sooner rather than later.

    Is he any more proven than Pochettino was at Southampton, when Sp**s decided to take a chance on him. Ultimately whoever we take will be a risk, so why not take someone who at least players eye catching footy while trying to get results. I place a premium over PL proven managers, and I think Howe is the best manager currently outside of the top six.

    It is my sad duty to inform you that the legendary Don Howe passed away on the 23rd December 2015

    It’s only a natural thought, I expected others to think it too. Arsène has been a one man army for too long, even the way he left he fell on his own sword to protect others. Would take him back next to the pitch in a hearbeat. He would have never played that cowards midfield at home against Sp**s.

    Howe would be another Moyes. Britain doesn’t have the level of management as other countries lets be honest we gotta find someone from abroad.

    That he wouldn't have done. He probably would have played Mesut, Ceballos and Guen

    He doesn’t even play good football, and I’m not sure he’s overachieved to a level where you’d expect him to have us competing for CL titles or even do more than Emery.

    Best one out there in terms of British managers right now is Wilder. He’s overachieved massively at every single club he’s been at, is one of the best tacticians going and is a massive innovator.

    He’s not a sexy pick because he’s not young, he’s Northern and is a bit of a knobhead. If you’re looking for someone British he’s your man.
