Got a feeling Arsenal may go for Eddie Howe

I think they are looking at a bigger figure in international terms. Think the Arsenal job is too big a step for him. Arsenal are apparently talking to Nuno from Wolves. That would be a huge blow for Wolves.

If I was Nuno, I don't think I'd leave Wolves for Arsenal. Hes currently working with a big budget compared to the teams they are competing with and would be changing to working with less than his peers at Arsenal. He also seems to have really bought into the project at Wolves too.

 

Howe is accustomed to being the little fish in the small pond.

Allegri could be the big fish you would expect but I wholly expect them to go for someone who wouldn't command as big a wage (although I suppose there is no compensation to pay which could offer a bit more room for negotiation on his contract)

If Pochettino wants to rub Daniel Levy's nose in it, he should take the Arsenal job. He might not want to work with prima donnas like Ozil, but he's good at getting players to give their all, there's real talent in the Arsenal squad, and he wouldn't have to move house.

Not convinced Santo is right for Arsenal, and I can't see Eddie Howe being trusted with the task of restoring CL football to the Emirates. I'd guess Arteta will be offered the post.

Agree.

Nuno I would think is very happy with where Wolves are right now. Arsenal are a big name, but does he want the job of rebuilding / restoring a fallen club? 

Eddie, while undoubtedly a very good coach...I get the impression he's more used to working with honest grafters. Could he handle having to work with temperamental prima donnas?

I wonder what Arsenal will do if Ljungberg has a golden spell like Solskjaer did at Man Utd? Will they give him a chance, or are they determined to land an experienced coach with a track record?

Would really love to see Pochettino get the job, but it looks as though there are a couple of more likely candidates out there.

Yet the claim of manslaughter against the 96 was upheld

Unless I have read it wrong the manslaughter charge of 95 was what he was cleared of in the most recent trial.

England get a very good group.

Looks tough to me. We've both beaten and lost to Croatia & Czech Republic recently.

I think England could have a real fight on their hands just to get out of the group.

Watford are going to sack Sanchez Flores, they'll be on their 3rd manager before Christmas.

Utterly ridiculous! I couldn't understand why they re-appointed him in the first place. 🤦‍♂️

The Czechs are terrible, Croatia are aging and there's little to fear from the play-off winner.

Given we can progress by finishing 3rd, it's easier to get out of the group than fail to.

Would they like to do a manager swap with us? Think he could do a job in terms of stabilising us and getting more out of the players we have.

I didn't realise we only need to finish 3rd. 😮

Jesus - England really have no excuse for not progressing.

 

Still, I don't feel its a given we will beat either Czech Rep or Croatia. We will have to play well and keep mistakes to a minimum. Any complacency and they can still do us.

    • wonder what the odds are for goals from Bennett, Flint and Tomlin?.....think we actually might grab something here....if anybody knows their weaknesses, it has to be Warnock and their need to make sure of the playoffs means that they might allow us to catch them on break....whoever plays up front needs to be mobile and able to hold their own with Morrison, so would start with Fletch and Roberts ....and ask Sav to let Tomlin know that he won't be allowed the freedom Rooney gave him. Although I don't think anyone deserves to be dropped after the display at Reading, if there are changes, it will probably be because Warnock wants to exploit one of their weaknesses...but the one thing we have to avoid is making our GD anywhere near those below us...it might be important
    • Yeah I agree - I don't think Liverpool were ever going to make it to be honest. Their squad is too threadbare to keep up what they were doing for the first 30 games or so. No cover at either full back position, poor back up keeper, central defence options not great after vvd, inconsistent midfield and absolutely nothing on the bench for up front.  First 11 is great, no doubt - but even that isn't in the running for the first first 11 imo.
    • Norwich love farke, they won’t sack him just because of relegation.
