    Season ticket holders are notorious for their inside knowledge of course :p

    I quite like it. What's wrong with it? We just appointed Emery so it's not going that bad. Most excited I have been for the new season for ages

    He didn't do badly at PSG either. He won 4 cups and a league in 2 seasons. It was just the champions league that was his downfall

    I wouldn't say the style is dour. He varies his tactics a lot. His teams can play great football but he is often pragmatic against big teams. We have certainly lacked someone like that at Arsenal in recent years.

    Seems a good fit to me overall as he is used to working on a budget and his record speaks for itself. The main point against him is that he doesn't necessarily play the style of football Arsenal are known for. Perhaps that is a good thing though as we don't really have the players to play like that anymore.

    Emery's record is pretty incredible. Very good at working on a budget which I'm sure the Arsenal board loved. Part of me still would have liked us to go for an inexperienced manager and break the mould but it is probably sensible to go for a manager with a proven track record

    Yeah, he's in London for talks. Arteta still favourite though. Two very different candidates. You can't argue with Emery's CV, he's done it at both low league clubs and top clubs. He doesn't really play the progressive, exciting football that that Arsenal board want though.

    I don't think many Arsenal fans expect to move much from 6th position. It's going to be at least 2 seasons of rebuilding. Finishing in the top 4 next season will be a bonus for me rather than an expectation. I don't think he was saying that Arteta isn't ready. I think he was saying that he didn't expect him to get the job. I don't see how he would really know whether he is ready or not. I do think there is a chance he will leave though. It's in his hands due to us letting his contract run down. I think he should be made captain. He's the best candidate and it may persuade him to stay. I think most managers would love to work with Mislintat. He's world renowned for spotting talent. It's getting much more common that managers do not have full control over recruitment so I don't think there are many clubs he could go to where he would have much control. There are far more benefits to taking the Arsenal job than greater job security. You are underestimating the pull of a club like Arsenal. Klopp joined Liverpool when he could have waited it out for a team higher in the league and with a better squad. Liverpool's history and size attracted him. The same can be said for Arsenal in their current situation. Managers will jump on the chance to manage such a huge club (this is highlighted by the reportedly high level of interest in the role). On top of that, we have our philosophies on how football should be played and promoting youth. If a manager agrees with these principles we will be a very attractive option. There is far more to it that current squad ability and budget.

    It is obviously not a step up in terms of the respective squad's abilities but replacing Wenger is prestigious in its self. Along with an opportunity to work in the premier league and increase his own wages, I can see why it would be attractive to him. Regardless it's looking increasingly unlikely he will be taking over.

    Arsenal want Arteta as manager. Just a matter of Arsenal convincing him to come apparently. I've heard a fair amount of negativity about this from Arsenal fans. I can see why as he has no experience. Someone like Allegri would certainly unite the fan base much more. For me though, I am optimistic. The amount of praise Arteta has got from Wenger and Pep must be for a reason. It would also be an appointment that continues our philosophy of hand picking unestablished talent and giving them a platform.

    Yeah, he has been hard done by. I think Southgate has left him out because he is going to play wing backs rather than full backs.

    Swap Cahill for Sterling. That teams too defensive
