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.

    • I’m sure that it was a club decision, that makes it seem even dafter. There are factions in dressing rooms at every club, that’s just human nature, you get on with the people that you have most in common with.    Anyway, it really didn’t work did it?
    • I honestly think the main goal is too become self sufficient... of course promotion but I think the days of Gibson spending exuberant amounts of ££ are long gone.. short term aim is to ensure we are in this league next season whilst continuing to reduce the wage bill. Medium Term Aim is to create an team of youngsters with a spine of experience and hope we can improve as a team. Do I think SG has lost interest... No is my honest opinion... have we made awful decisions... yes without doubt.. allowing Bevington to take control of transfers in the summer was by far our worse move... set us back more than  just Woody. Was woody on a hiding to nothing... Yes he is a local lad being hung out to dry , I know we all criticise him etc but how many of you would of taken the job of managing your home town club.. no brainer for him , only a tenth of what Jokanovic plus his staff wanted. Really wish we got a DoF in place and was told that's what Woody wanted as well. With regards to the PR the club are spouting that's just Natural. Season ticket sales etc are the main aim now. We dont sell many then the club can say we didnt have the funds to sign anyone in summer.  Am I confident in Woody... not really , would I love to see him succeed? Without a doubt. He needs to find a settled 11 for the remainder of the season and stick with it though. Only way we grind it out in my opinion.

    • Perhaps those on the side line DS have got fed up of banging their heads against a brick wall and are just waiting for the International break and hoping we will have seen the last of Woodgate. Has for the team that was out there Saturday I really do not believe they thought Luton a walkover , but what I do believe is that they did nothing to help the situation.Watching Woodgate time and again look to the skies and say f**king hell to him upstairs proved to me the team where not doing what he may have planned and in which case like I said Saturday I think he has lost the dressing room. Also that speech at the end of the game did not go down well I bet and I also think Gibson will look on that as a final straw once the manager starts looking for scrape goats to blame for his mistakes there is no way back in my book. Why he never changed a thing at half time was rather baffling we were only a goal behind and when that team plays together they can easily get that goal plus more against weak teams like Luton.
    • From what I've heard the 'no foreigner' policy was a club decision rather than a Monk decision.  During the Premier league season there was apparently a divided dressing room between the English and Spanish speaking players. I think there was a desire to prevent that happening again.
