Wenger Out! But only if Arsenal get Allegri

Arsene Out – but only if we get Allegri! by AT

As is the norm, there is a lot of speculation over the future of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger as the Gunners move towards the end of yet another disappointing season. The difference this time is that the Gunners do not look likely to even achieve a top-four finish and the number of fans calling for Wenger’s head are greater than ever before, and with the boss out of contract at the end of the season, the likelihood of Wenger quitting is also stronger than ever before.

Personally, I think Wenger should walk. Thirteen years without a title is simply unacceptable for a club like Arsenal. For someone who has been around for more than twenty years, the Frenchman does not seem to have learned from his mistakes and continues to make the same old excuses.

However, what makes the situation complicated is whether the Arsenal board will bring in a world-class replacement. In the midst of all the penny-pinching, we may see Arsenal sign someone in the standard of Sam Allardyce or Eddie Howe, managers who may not even be able to maintain the level Arsene has been maintaining.

Another complication is that the futures of a lot of players depend on whether Wenger will stay on, with Ozil admitting that Wenger’s decision will be a key factor in his own decision to stay with the club or leave. Apart from the German, it is likely that the futures of Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud all depend on Wenger’s decision too.

Anyway, my point is that if Arsenal are to replace manager, it should be someone who is capable of building a squad and challenging for titles. Looking at the situation now, the only manager of that calibre who’s future is up in the air is Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri. If we can’t get him, we’d rather not take the risk of bringing in a mediocre manager.

      So the Author of this article is saying if Arsenal can’t get Allegri, we should be stucked with Wenger for Life!

      Arsenal poor form will continue come next season, you guys should relax Wenger is already out and there is nothing anybody can do about it

  2. Nebsy says:

    I’d say Wenger out, even if a mute, half-blind donkey is appointed as the new manager.
    But I believe that Kroenke and co will find a manager in Wenger’s mould, so a mute, half-blind donkey won’t do, I believe it will be a perpetuum mobile drinking bird, as it resembles exactly what is Wenger’s relationship with the board.

    Wenger should go at the end of the season. There are plenty of good managers around

    1. Kevin Weaver says:

      I agree with you. If Arsenal look around there are no shortages of aspiring young managers. Arsenal took a chance on Wenger, 21 years ago why not take a similar chance now. I’d be more than happy for us to go after Marco Silva from Hull or Wagner from Huddersfield.

      1. SoOpa AeoN says:

        LoL…. WAGNER?………….
        Sounds just Like WENGER ……. Kroenke would be tempted

        1. The troll formerly known as Robin Vanpayslip says:

          He could save on the office sign by just swapping one of the Es for an A and rearranging the letters. Sounds like something Kronke would do.

          On a more serious note, I don’t even think we would need to take a chance. It’s a good job in the football world and there would almost certainly be a top manager willing to join.

  4. At this point I no longer care who is brought in, I just want Wenger out. He is a cancer killing us from within and must be removed if we are to make any kind of progress. 5-0, 5-1, 6-0, 6-3, 8-2…what will it take for Wenger to be fired for heaven’s sake?!

      Record breaking scoreline….

      1. Rocky Rocastle says:

        Even if we did lose 26-0 there would still be excuses, eg ‘there were special circumstances so this result does not count.’ I am beginning to think only relegation would make Stan think twice about Arsene, but even then I’m not so sure……..

  5. Hugh Jarce says:

    No manager guarantees
    success all the time.
    Klopp is still “learning”
    Pep is “adapting”
    Jose is “rebuilding”
    Pochettino is getting “closer”
    Koeman is “developing”
    Ranieri got sacked.
    Enrique won the treble and is walking before he is pushed.
    Only Conte is succeeding but with out European commitments.
    No manager will guarantee success.
    Wenger managed top club Monaco for 7 seasons
    and only won the weak Ligue un once before getiing the Arsenal job.
    Alex Ferguson took 7 years to win his first title but went on to win 13.
    George Graham managed Millwall prior to getting the Arsenal job.
    Grahams two premierships in 9 years is superior to Wengers 3 in 20 years.
    So there is no guaranteed formula for finding a successful manager.

      Ahhhh so keep this one as at least we know he fails

      You could t make this crap up

  6. SoOpa AeoN says:

    There are lots of technically gifted managers out ere
    WENGER OUT even if we don’t get Allegri ….. It can’t get anyworse

    Stop sounding like an AKB….no sitting on the fence!

  7. AndersS says:

    Wenger should have been sacked after the first Bayern match. There it became absolutely clear, what a state we are in. It still hasn’t happened, and it is a joke.
    Even the players have lost their faith in him, and it is difficult to imagine, we could do any worse than what we are at the moment.

  8. Invivncibles49 says:

    Wenger out is fine. But saying that the Wenger’s successor does not matter is foolish. Post Wenger, Arsenal will need a major rebuilding which will require the ability of attract world class players. Wenger has a decent reputation to bring renowned players to Arsenal if he is willing to spend.

    Look at it this way:
    David Moyes with 100mil and Allegri at 100mil. Who do you think would be able to sign a player like Greizmann/Bale etc.

    Moyes versus Allegri in handling the dressing room where big, egoistic personalities are present.

    You get the point.

    So let’s not get over our head and be realistic. Wenger going out is important. But someone important replacing him is more important.

      You think that currently any player will be swayed by wenger?

  9. Big G says:

    13 years without a title is a long time but if I recall correctly it was 18 years without a title when we beat Liverpool 0 – 2 at Anfield in 1989 and I think we have been even longer before that.

  10. JPS_AFC1 says:

    Wenger out regardless. There is Allegri, Sampoli, Tuchel, Ralph Huzentunel or what ever it is Simeone there are plenty off good managers out there who are doing well or over achieving with there clubs. Enrique is definitely available. Seriously it can’t get any worse even if the new guy has a bad year while he integrates and builds chemistry with the current and new players we can’t be scared off change. It worllse sitting on our hands and hoping Le Fraud to reinvent himself. The definition of Insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. It’s like DT said after the 2nd leg against Bayern our squad cost more than theirs and they spanked us 10-2 over 2 legs.
