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.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
