The question of when and if Arsene Wenger will step aside and end his long reign as the manager of Arsenal is a subject for debate and will probably depend on how this season goes for the Gunners and how the Frenchman himself feels about carryingh on.
With Wenger having recently turned 67 though, we can assume that it will be sooner or later and that is why the topic of who will be the one to replace him is coming up more and more often in the football media and among Arsenal fans.
There have been many names netinoed for the job and recently it seems that one of the most popular choices is the man who was in the opposite dugout today, the Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe. If the Arsenal board are considering the young Englishman then he will have done himself no harm today as the Cherries rerally got stuck into Arsenal and were arguably the best team for long periods of the game.
The way they played, with energy, passion and determination is someything thast many Arsenal fans feel that we have been missing for years and Howe also appears to be good on the flowing and fluuent side of the game that we have become used to under Wenger.
What do you think of Howe as the new Arsenal boss Gooners?
