    Discuss new manager possibilities here. T’other thread can be used to discuss uncle Arsene.

    Brendan Rodgers?
    Patrick Vieira?

    Any other names in the hat?

    Needs to be a more established manager.
    I don’t go in for the Vieria/ex players first ever job stuff.

    Not that I want them to do well.

    Has to be Brendan Rogers, otherwise AFTV will not be worth watching. Arsenal is pointless now without their shit fans kicking off on AFTV, afterall. Hopefully Kroenke is a fan and takes this into account.

    They should move heaven and earth for Simeone, in my opinion. Bit of a departure from the aesthetic they had under Wenger, but he's a master tactician and motivator with a fiery personality, and could bring the squad quality and mentality up to stretch on a budget (relative to the bigger spenders), and also improve their profile in European competitions (which has been a sore spot for a club of Arsenal's stature and presumed ambitions). You get a sense that Simeone is coming to the end of his cycle at Atlético, and London should be cosmopolitan enough for someone like him. As a club, Arsenal do kinda need a shock to the system (like Wenger was after the broader George Graham era), and Simeone could give them one. They won't play the prettiest brand of football under him, but he will certainly engender more grit and discipline in that lot.

    Brendan could be decent as well — he's done a reasonably good job at Celtic, and might be one for the long haul if things go well.

    I thought ancelotti would take over at the beginning of the season. I should have put money on it.

    I agree, Simeone could give them a different direction- more focused on winning and taking them right to the top-not just hovering in top 4. His style of football I actually enjoy seeing how tactically astute he is and the determination he instills. I wouldn’t mind him after Jose.

    But would he want to go to Arsenal? Quite possibly so they should try at least.

    German connections, Tuchel or Low I reackon. Everything has been put in place, ex dortmund guy in charge of recruitment and they've been signing the likes of Miki and Auber. Can't help but feel that Ozil might just have signed a new contract because he knew this was coming and has been told who's replacing him.

    One of these -

    Ancelotti (If they think a proven big coach would be ideal to succeed Wenger)
    Thomas Tuchel
    Allegri
    Diego Simeone
    Joachim Low (They could approach him after the World Cup)
    Leonardo Jardim

    Rodgers won’t get them where they want to be.

    Ancelotti for a couple of years with Vieira as his understudy would be smart imo.

    It will be Jardim. I don't think their board will go for Ancelotti and Tuchel will be hired by PSG. Tuchel also would want CL football next season, so Arsenal has to win the EL for him to consider the job, and that's not even taking Mislintat's relationship with him into account.

    They won't have instant success since there is a lot of work for the new manager to do. But I assume we will see a much better Arsenal side next season in terms of defense and midfield. It's a new era, and perhaps they could make the league's Top 6 more interesting if they challenge for the title within a few seasons.

    Whatever happens they must not let Wenger get involved in the selection process. They are at the same stage we were 5 years ago (without the success of course) but there are still parallels. Both clubs in need of rebuilding and two coaches who had a vital impact on the culture of the club. Getting this managerial appointment is crucial. We messed up ours with Moyes and then LVG setting the club back years. There will be tough times ahead and I don't expect them to be competing straight away because the new manager will walk into a big mess but getting the right manager will save the club a lot of years and ease the sticky transition they will have to go through. A bit like how we should've appointed Mourinho back in 2013. If Arsenal get it wrong and appoint the wrong man they'll go through exactly what we did and perhaps worse because it doesn't look like they'll spend the money that we did.

    I hope you are aware of how much moving and shaking Simeone have to do to bring this Arsenal to his level. Lacazette, Ozil and Mkhi can't do what should be expected by Simeone from defensive point of view. It's the reason why Jose sold Mkhi, Ozil and didn't go for Lacazette.

    The most logical appointment as @Invictus has eluded to is Someone. He'd at a minimum honour their defensive legacy.

    Hope not, for our sake. I believe he can do wonders in a club like Arsenal.

    He'd want the spending though. Wenger has been deliberately frugal for the sake of his footballing ethics but the next guy won't have those same ideals. He won't be staying for 22 years and will be looking for the immediate impact.

    I think it'd be good for the PL even if it means another powerful rival on the block. Anything that presents itself as a genuine challenge to the City juggernaut has got to be good. And TBH, Arsenal aren't a plastic club like City and Chelsea

    Good points although the pressure on the next Arsenal manager won't be immense, atleast I don't think it will and as you say, they aren't a plastic club. Thats why I think a manager like Simeone will be given a season or two to build his team and implement his tactics before he is judged. I personally rate Simeone highly and think he would do great if given a chance at a proper club in the PL.

    Yeah this. I hope it's Rodgers for personal reasons as Celtic are unlikely to attract another manager of that calibre to Scotland. But with the elevated standard of gaffer now at the top end of the Premier League, and the resources swilling around to be called upon, Arsenal could feasibly lure the very best. Simeone might turn them down as he's coming from a better team and also seems keen to go to Inter at some point, but it's a more possible move than it was a few seasons ago.

    Ancelotti should be the number one choice. CL and league winner with broad experience.

    I agree. He's kind of built in the Jose mould; won't stand for showboating, demands a strong work ethic and if you think you've made it then you're out.

    I honestly think someone like Ramsey and Iwobi would be brilliant under him
