So it looks like Wenger is being linked with us via the papers, Personally I can't see that happening. Once he retires (looks like end of season) unless he is offered a position at Arsenal he will bow out of football all together, he certainly will not move up to us.

I would welcome him at our club with open arms, just because he is having a "one off" bad season does not make him a bad manager. For the last 22 years he has secured the Gooners a European spot with 20 of those being in the CL. Whilst in the CL he has slightly more than a 50% win rate and yet on these forums people seem to see him as a bad choice for us yet at the same time the same people will rather we opt for Silva who failed at both Huddersfield and Watford.

Oh well such is the game of football, just no pleasing some folk. (In my opinion) .

last season arsene wenger said that he would carry on in management even if arsenal did not renew so I wouldn't put money on him retiring once he is given the boot, silva managed hull not Huddersfield and hardly failed there, but agree silva seems to risk for me as seen if a club came sniffing he becomes unsettled. but reg wenger needs to be a young coach for next manager that can grip the club and make it his own.

Looks like we do have links with Arsenal with our new owner?, but we DON'T want Wenger, but can see it happening "one off" bad season, lol you are joking Grumpy?

I would take Arsene Wenger at Everton as a DoF with a younger manager in place to work with him.
We need a DoF who is a footballing man through and through and Wenger fits the bill.

Wenger as DOF would work great as he has the insight to be a great help round a club, but its not a role he would take he still see's himself as a manager and a manager only.

WBlue you're right it's Hull not Huddersfield, I was chatting to one of my grand kids who has just got a job there and will be relocating. Old brain not working right.

Do you think Arsenal may offer him a DoF role or will they want him away altogether?

05 Mar 2018 14:53:08
Thoroughly agree with Grumpy. Would open my arms to Wenger. He won a hell of a lot more in those 22 years with Arsenal than our whole club did.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Arsenal the only team that turns a profit practically every year? Wenger does more behind the scenes for the football club.

Would be a massive asset in my humble opinion.

I personally think he'll move on from arsenal, where to who knows I think when they finally do change they'll have to change completely that means arsene not being at the club, they'll be looking for fresh ideas not recycled.

05 Mar 2018 15:21:05
You may be right WBlue, Just look at Man Utd and we can still see a lot of Fergie influences going on.

I agree NBTB I also think he would be an asset for us, especially if he gets us into Europe for 22 consecutive years,

05 Mar 2018 19:22:47
Exactly Grumpy.

05 Mar 2018 19:44:56
Personally I wouldn't have him as director of sweeping up, let alone DOF.
he has never done that job before, remind you of anyone else we know.
Like players aren't guaranteed to be great managers, managers aren't guaranteed to be great DOF's.

Have we learnt nothing from the last 2 years. Let's get a manager in who fits with us, not get a manager and then try and fit in with them.

I can just see the likes of Rooney, siggy, Gana, Bolasie and Tosun trying to pass their way into oppositions penalty areas.

difference between a scout taking up that role and a man who was won nearly everything that he possibly could and has lived and breathed the proper footballing side of the premier league for over 20 years smit is huge.
