I think they need to bring the Arsenal way back to the Club. Who would be the Solskjaer equivalent for them? Kanu maybe? Has Sylvan Wiltord got his coaching badges yet?

Looks like they want Mourinho and fickle as some of their fans are, they're getting on board with that as well. Shocking, after the history between Mourinho and Wenger.

Think the problem is bar Allegri probably, there's no real obvious top candidates. The bookies have Arteta, Vieira, Allegri, Mourinho, Rodgers, Nuno Santos and Ljungberg as the 7 favourites to take over just now.

Emery is a fraud

Did OK with Sevilla.

Just seems it was his level. Not sure it quite makes him a fraud. Just a man slightly out of his depth.

I would think there is a much greater chance of Mourinho ending up of Spurs rather than Arsenal.

Yep. I think Sevilla was his level. He's been caught out at club's pushing for a more attacking ethos

Mourinho would be a disaster in the long term for them. He might get them in CL for a season or two though.

Given their team composition and the negativity surrounding the club even Allegri and Rafa wouldn't be ideal choices. Might as well get Wenger as caretaker and try to go for Nagelsmann next summer.

They fucked up in the last transfer window by spending big for Pepe and buying a bargain CB in Luiz.

I like being an Arsenal wellwisher, I’d be devastated if they went and hired Mourinho.  Even apart from the history and the obnoxiousness, he’d offer them nothing beyond a chance of shoring the defence up short-term, and he’s so clearly not in line with how they see themselves as a club no matter how many 1-0 to the Arsenals he might promise.

I’d hope they have a bit more imagination than that; there’s been talk about Arteta and Vieira, or promoting Ljungberg.  I honestly think they should be having a look at Gerrard too.

That’d actually be quite entertaining, if only for the internal politics of the thing.  Imagine the glee with which he’d set about trashing Guardiola’s legacy there.

If Rodgers left Leicester he’d be a bit of a prick, and it’s probably a silly career move for him anyway.
Mourinho won’t bring the fan base together, and it’ll be much the same as his time at United.

They’d be best off holding off to the end of the season and getting Ancelotti.

Looks as though Arsenal fans are desperate to be in the race for most delusional fan base in the league. They're six points off 4th. What did they expect? Give Emery the season and then sack him if you don't secure Champions League football.

Please bring in Mourinho though. He'll have about 1/4 of what he had to spend at United and he'll absolutely go down in flames and bring the club down with him trying to get these back to where they think they belong.

I might be  only one on here who rates mourinho but honestly I can't see him making them any worse defensively. They have enough quality going forwards to continue scoring goals. Have we forgotten that he made that utd lot finish 2nd? (A lot of the transfers mind you were negotiated with sponsorships in mind).

He also did well with Inter and Porto on relatively low budgets.  I wouldn't want to see him at the Arse.

The teams doing well right now all have a solid structure in place, a plan. I said before Wenger left that he seemed to be heavily involved in everything there, and they needed to break up his responsibilities and hire a few people to take over before switching managers, but it seems like they've just continued on the same but with a manager who can't fill that gap. If they do replace Emery I can see them struggling regardless of who they bring in, the mancs have a ton of money behind them but maureen failed there because they have the same problem.

On another note, can we call Pepe shit yet or is it still too early?
