Proof Arsenal will not replace Wenger with Howe?

There has been a lot of mystery and debate about the job of Arsenal manager this week, and for the last few years really. This always happens after a poor performance or game, especially at this stage of a season and when it seems like the Gunners have let another campaign slip by without mounting a serious challenge for the Premier League title.

There have been some reports this week that Arsene Wenger is seriously considering his own future and with age catching up with him it is increasingly likely that the Frenchman will say enough is enough. It would have been nice for him to go out on top, of course, but how long is he going to carry on when the same old problems keep the Gunners from fully firing?

Only time will tell but it does seem apparent that Wenger will only step aside if Arsenal find the right man to take over. There are quite a few candidates but reading between the lines of a Sky Sports report on the on loan Arsenal star Jack Wilshere this week, it will not be the Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe taking over.

Howe was talking about Jack and the possibility of keeping him at Bournemouth and when he spoke about the plans for the summer it seemed evident that he has no thought of not being in charge there next season. If Arsenal were thinking of Howe they would surely already have sounded him out, so does this mean we can cross at least one name off the list of possible Wenger replacements?

    With Giroud, Sanchez, Welbeck and Lucas do we really need Mbappe? I think the deal will only make sense if Sanchez refuses to sign.

      If this kid is being compared to Henry then we need him,regardless to who stays or goes, right? ??

      1. Twig says:

        Isn’t Martial the “next Henry”? 😛

        1. Fatboy Gooney says:

          ? Naaaah, otherwise Wenger would have signed him ?

            surely you mean wenger would have almost tried to sign him !?, lol.

              Wenger missed Mane.

    2. Break-on-through says:

      Sign him up, along with Bakayoko.

    Chelsea playing like Arsenal ?

      Burnley are pretty decent at home.

      Burnley’s home form:
      Played 13, won 9,drawn 1,lost 3. GF 21.GA 11. Total points 28.

      Chelsea’s away form:
      Played 12,won 8,drawn 2,lost 2.GF 18. GA 10. Total points 26.

      When you consider that Burnley have played an extra game, the stats basically predicted a draw for this game.
      And yep this is the system I use when placing a bet ?

    Off topic: Before the Chelsea game, I actually predicted a Burnley win or a draw at least. Burnley home form is simply incredible. They were tough.

    Wished we defeated Watford, get a draw against Chelsea. Would have been nice..

    Oh well, like I said in one of my posts, Chelsea are capable of dropping few points but are we gonna capitalise always? Based on the past, I doubt we will capitalise always.

    Anyway, we have Bayern next..

    We would’ve been 4 points behind if we beat Chelsea last week.

      and if grandma had a dick, she’d be grandpa

    This current team with their inconsistency can’t beat Chelsea at stamford bridge,its as simple as that. Read the Rio Ferdinand’s interview on Espn about Arsenal and he was just spot on……..Arsenal’s priority seems to be just the top four,which we all have known for a few years now. Don’t be surprised if Wenger gets another two years because the board are happy with their finances,they care very less about fans and the club winning any trophy. So forget about any Eddie Howe,he’s never going to be a manager at arsenal.

    Eddie Howe is nowhere near ready to be Arsenal manager. He tries to play attractive football but that’s where it ends.

    Bournemouth have conceded 3 goals six times this season alone, they don’t score enough and he has no experience managing a club anywhere near the size of Arsenal.

    And can you imagine trying to sign big name players, how many would want to play under Howe with his lack of experience, a lot of them wouldn’t even have heard of him.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like what he’s done at Bournemouth, and maybe in a few years he will be ready for a big club, but not yet.
