Arsenal urged to take advantage of Chelsea’s woes and poach Thomas Tuchel

Piers Morgan has claimed that Arsenal should ‘break the bank’ to sign Thomas Tuchel from Chelsea after the club came under sanctions by the UK Government.

The Blues have a massive cloud of uncertainty over them at present, with news that their budgets have been reduced, their funds ring-fenced, and that they will no longer be allowed to sell tickets or other items for the foreseeable future amidst owner Roman Abramovich’s links to Russia and Vladamir Putin.

With so much attention on the west London club, Piers Morgan has urged his favourite club Arsenal to splash out to bring Thomas Tuchel across London.

After being accused of unfairness on the current regime, with Mikel Arteta currently getting the best from his current squad, Piers claimed he preferred to base his thoughts on knowledge as opposed to ‘feelings’, adding (via the Metro): ‘I prefer facts to feelings.

‘Artet has had two years, and this season we’re not in Europe, were knocked out of both domestic cups in January, and are currently 21 points off the league leaders.

‘He also just gave our best striker away [Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang]. Tuchel’s a proven world class manager who just won the Champions League.

‘Come back to me when we have a team that is competitive to win the Premier and/or Champions League.’

Piers is known for his controversial comments, and I certainly have mixed feelings on this one. While I respect what Tuchel has done, there is no proof that he is one who can build a team or be that long-term successful manager, nor has he even found a consistent enough note out of his star-studded squad to challenge for the Premier League title.

Our lesser-squad could well be just two points behind them should we win the two games in hand on them, which surely highlights that Arteta is able to get more from his players, and he deserved praise for his work.

I’m under no illusions that we would even consider replacing Mikel when he is doing such a fine job, especially when they refused to sack him when strong options were available when we were struggling previously, and I’m really excited to see just how far the Spaniard can take us on a lesser budget than a number of our rivals.

Does anyone believe that Tuchel would get more from the current Arsenal squad than Arteta is at present? Am I wrong in claiming that we have a lesser squad than a number of our rivals, including those both above and below us in the table?

Are Arsenal worthy of a Top Four finish?

  1. Many on here will be surprised at me saying this but so far I think Arteta has earned another season as coach. That can obviously change in the coming months but he seems to have put his ego aside and is learning from his mistakes.

    1. I would agree, I have been skeptical of Arteta and “progress” claimed by some, but that progress is now clear to see.

      Finish top 4 and he has earned an extension, hard to argue otherwise. Now the task is to not only challenge for top 4 yearly, but to compete for the PL title as well.

      It’s a high standard with expectations, but we are Arsenal not a mid-table club. We expect top performances from players, and that extends to not only the manager, but all of management as well.

      1. Agree that if AFC achieve top4 MA deserves an extension.
        Even if AFC falls a little bit short of top4 he deserves to stay as the team has improved significantly in the past 15 months.
        We can be ambitious for the future but need to bear in mind it will take another couple of years until this team is mature enough to challenge for the PL trophy.

  2. I don’t think Tuchel is in a rush to leave Chelsea just yet. A lot of people are jumping the gun on the so called ‘demise’ of Chelsea. For sure they will no longer win trophies as regular as over the past two decades but let’s wait until every reaches a conclusion and who their new owner is before we get ahead of ourselves.

    1. Tuhcy only built on a strong foundation. MA built a team for 4-6 yrs with a few titles along the way. Tuch. Will be fighting for 3rd spot on the last fixture.

  3. Arteta is doing really good. With a few new signings, we should already be able to measure up with the top teams. No need to replace him now.
    Let him keep the momentum burning.

  4. I am an Arsenal fan, not an Arteta’s fan, not a Thomas Tuchel fan. But I believe Arteta, if given the squad of Tuchel, will do better than Tuchel. I don’t think I would have been saying this in January, but Arteta has surprised me already.
