    I also agree that O"Leary did himself no good at all. Blowing kisses to Bob did not go down well.

    I think that Dennis would be an excellent Manager. He now has time to get some experience, do his badges and travel around the World and get some new ideas. One idea is that he could be financed by the club and kept on specifically to train for the role. He could work with Wenegr so that when he moves upstairs succession is in place.

    bergs has a good footballing mind. and we always call him "wengers son" in our house cos - apparently - he looks a bit like wenger. ;D

    Im expecting wenger to stay with us for a long time to come. But when he does retire in around 10 years hopefully someone like bergkamp, vieira , campbell etc etc will have retired and learnt a lot from wenger about managing. They would be my choice.

    Really. I don't think so. Bergy actually looks older with his receeding hairline.

    Bergy couldn't be the manager because he doesn't go on planes so he wouldn't go to away games when we are in europe

    I am not that confident in Rijkaard, TBH.
    Rijkaard is nothing more than Johan Cruyffs hand puppet.
    Cruyff didn't want to go back to management, but Barca wanted him, so they decided to take a manager with a big name, and a friend of JC.
    Koeman is to inexperienced (and crap at managment IMO)
    Van Basten didn't have any experience, neither did any of cruyff's former spanish players or Stoichkov.
    So you end up with an inexperienced manager who has failed in his previous 2 jobs, for Holand and relegated with Sparta!

    I would go for Louis van Gaal, experienced, won everything, with a young and attacking team. And Mourinho eats out of his hand....

    Arsène in director role, with TA or DB in a managerial position are noises that have been made for the eventual future. We have a great base of ex-players who would love to work with the club.

    I like the thought of Arsène's being the brains behind the operations, with TA being the motivation and day to day manager. I just cannot see how Wenger would take a backseat in anything though - it's not in his character.

    Do not rule out Boro Primorac, or perhaps even Pat Rice or Liam Brady - from within the club. Steve Bould is being groomed too.

    The Pat Rice and Liam Brady examples are possible. They have worked under AW, kow the style we play, and know almost everything AW does by working with him. In many years time one might just be ready to take over when AW leaves or retires.

    I'd like it if it was one of them. Someone involved with the club already who knows how it works.

    Exactly, someone who has learnt under the wenger 'way'

    Hmmm.... maybe....

    The problem with that is that the new manager will need to be his own man. Someone else can't spend their coaching career pretending to be AW, they just won't be successful.

    As for me, I'm not so sure about Maurinho. While clearly IMO the best manager aside from Wenger, the culture of his clubs leave too little respect for what has gone on in the past. And, quite frankly, I don't think he'd be happy winning everything with an Arsenal team that was already winning everything. He's the kind of guy who wants to make his mark.

    Thus, I think it possibly leaves us with Didier Deschamp. Not sure, cos I don't know the man, but he's done a top job with Monaco and would be far technically superior to any of the British-based coaches mentioned earlier. O'Leary simply doesn't have the tactical nous at such a high level nor the experience at dealing with players of Arsenal calibre. (With all due respect to his achievements with Villa and elsewhere. Good on him, and well done.)
