The debate about our manager and who might take over will continue to rage among Arsenal fans, of course, for as long as Arsene Wenger is still in charge. A good summer transfer window from the Frenchman and a good start to next season will help to calm down the calls for Wenger to step down but I do not think that even winning the Premier League title would see them disappear altogether.
It does seem, though, that the Arsenal board have made up their minds to give the Frenchman at least one more year and to allow him see out his current contract which is due to expire next summer. Right or wrong, that looks like being the way it is and a theory about why, is the fear of Arsenal going the same way as Man United did when Ferguson hung up his hairdryer.
Replacing Wenger with the wrong man could make things much worse for the club and so this is a decision that they really need to get right and with the Prof said to have such a huge role at the club he is supposedly set to have a big say in who will replace him, and I wonder if his former star striker and club legend Thierry Henry is being groomed for the role.
As reported by Metro this week, the TV pundit has now completed his coaching badges and is set to be handed his first official coaching role with the Arsenal under 18 side. Could this be with the idea of getting Henry used to management in time to be given control of the senior side a year from now?
