    Wenger will resign. Hopefully in another 2 years this thread may be really relevant.

    I find it funny that the word "resign" gets confused with the one "re-sign". Obviously you meant the latter one in your post.

    Personally I'd say he's 70/30 to re-up (a less ambiguous word!) But I think that if for any reason he's hedging his bet until the end of the season, if our results were to really sour, then that 70/30 could become 30/70.

    It's all interesting that's for sure. Not just for Gooners also. I can't believe the amount of press this issue's been getting in the last month.

    Edit: Oops, I didn't answer the OP's question really. I've fancied Klopp for some time, even with his recent difficulties, but I realize that the best window for that happening was about 1-2 years ago. Although I guess I'd be open to some Italian "pragmatist" instead... I, like so many other fans, are more than impatient for an EPL or UCL trophy.

    I really hope we win 2 or 3 nil today vs. Bayern.

    But if we get smoked, Wenger should announce his retirement within the next 24-48 hours.

    Yes! I meant re-sign! And I was harsh with saying this thread was irrelevant. I was just looking for a thread like this the other day so I'm glad it was made.

    I would love to get Alegri, or Tuchel. To be honest I think I'm just bored. I do think Wenger is a good coach, but I just think it's time for a change. Wenger has been consistent, and has been remarkably good for Arsenal as a club. I just think we could use a change. We most certainly need a fresh face, someone to challenge the team. Someone to change the mentality of the players. Someone with a different style, someone different to hear talking to the press. Someone to acknowledge the teams weaknesses. It's just been year after year of the same drill. Hope for a better player or two in the summer thinking (this is what we need), doing well for a while in the season, just to falter at some point.

    Speaking of having someone different to hear during press conference, made me think of Jaap Stam, who is now Reading manager. I heard him speak last night and he is 100% completely fluent in English. Plus he sounds like a good dude. Who knew? I just think of him as United's giant enforcer. Supposedly he's got Reading playing really nice looking, organized football. Cue the Bigman.

    Alegri and tuchel would be good because they're the best of what's around. But they don't really inspire me, ya know?

    Tonite's result may just be step one. I know some of y'all are cheering a 1-5 defeat in Munich.

    Ain't no one cheering. I got pulled into something, so missed most of the second half, but what the hell happened?

    At this point a traffic cone with sunglasses and a trench coat would be a better manager than Wenger, so I'll take just about anybody right now. Maybe they can prop up the statue of Henry in the technical area and get better results.

    I hate to say I told you so. Wait, no I don't. I ********ing told you so. Wenger has been past it for a long time, but waiting this long to replace him has cost us years of rebuilding time. I don't rule out the prospect that he will renew and milk this club a little bit more, but enough is enough. The man needed to be gone years ago, and if he had any decentcy he would announce his resignation after the next leg.

    Same as always, Bayern strung a few passes together and that's all that's needed really.

    Love Wenger and what he's done for the club but this really has to be it. With the progress that the other top teams in the league are making I'd be surprised if we get EL football with him in charge next season.

    Not happening. If he goes anywhere it's to Italy for a few years before looking at the Argentine NT.

    Barca? He seems to have even less of an idea than Wenger ffs?


    But I'm not really picky, Howe or even Staam is fine by me. As long as it's someone that realises that defending isn't only done through possession then I'm good at this point.

    Just because he built this club up doesn't mean he can tear it down.

    He needs to go before his legacy is damaged beyond repair.

    After tonight, I truly believe Arsene Wenger owes AFC his resignation.

    Owes.

    Plain and simple.

    Walk.

    Walk away.

    Sadly, I doubt that means anything since Stan Kroenke owns the club, Gazidis is a puppet, and all the board does is...

    "Win Win Win no matter what.... Got money on their minds, and they'll never give it up...."

    And it stays there!
    And it stays there!
    And it stays there!

    UP UP UP UP!!!

    He'll probably dick around all summer and not commit one way or another, then on the day before his contract expires he'll sign a short term 3-4 month deal. Then in late november he'll leave and Arsenal will have no good manager options. The following year Kroenke hires Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, simply because his name is Gunnar.

    Well the part about 3-4 months and then hiring Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a little farfetched. The rest of it though, is legit what I'm afraid of. We're best off for the club if he resigns tomorrow. But if he doesn't do that, maybe on the grounds of being in the middle of the season, he needs to resign or be sacked immediately after the final fixture of the season.

    Whoever comes in is going to have a lot of word to do, and we want to preserve as much of the transfer window as possible for them to do it. We can't afford to get behind the 8-ball waiting on Wenger to do something, when the players we need to get are moving, and the clubs who need to buy our players are spending their money elsewhere.

    You fools, you imbeciles the lot of you.

    When Boro Primorac is the next manager, you will scream to me, in my new Man City shirt and enjoying top four football, "Save Us!"...and I'll look down and whisper, "No."

    The top 3 hell yes. Enrique still on the fence about him, Howe is too unproven would prefer Koeman, Tuchel needs to work on his teams defending otherwise if he comes here he takes us back to pre Cech-Mertesacker-Koscielny times.
