Not ebery Arsenal fan would put the Italian coach Massimiliano Allegri at the top of their transfer wish list as the club seeks to replace the long serving Artsene Wenger, but his amazing record of success with the serial Serie A champions Juventus and his impressive credentials before that with AC Milan and others suggest that he is one of the best.
With this current Arsenal team set to finish in 6th place, the worst Premier League finish in the reign of Arsene Wenger, you could say that the new manager of the Gunners, whoever it turns out to be, has a massive job on his hands.
Of course the Arsenal fans and everyone concerned with Arsenal Football Club expects and wants change at the top, which is why Arsene Wenger has finally been forced to accept that he is no longer the right person to be manager of the Gunners.
Well it may be true that Arsene Wenger would not be in such a good mood after his Arsenal team lost away to Leicester City this week if the result had any impact on the season in general. If it had cost us a place then I think the Frenchman would still have been seething about what he saw as injustice from the referee and his crucial calls in favour of the Foxes.
On the face of things this was another terrible night on the road for Arsenal Football Club, as the first defeat to Leicester City with Arsene Wenger as our manager left the Gunners still without a single league point on the road in 2016.
As football matches go this was a real humdinger, but unfortunately for Arsenal the key moments did little to help us earn a first Premier League point of the year away from home. But against a well up for it Foxes team the Gunners produced the sort of fighting team performance that we hope to see more of in the new era. Well done lads!
Arsenal want to end this disappointing Premier League seqason on some sort of positive note and the best way to do that would be to end our record of not getting a single point away from home in 2016, and I reckon that the 11 players picked by Arsene Wenger to face Leicester City tonight has what it takes.
With Arsenal putting five past Burnley without reply last weekend, there is no real need for us to get anything out of the two remaining Premier League games, in terms of league position anyway. However, just for the sake of ending the season with something for the fans to smile about and giving the departing manager Arsene Wenger a decent send-off, I think the players will be keen to perform well over the next few days.
