A very good morning one and all.
After last night absolutely abysmal display, who would have thought we would be calling it a good morning? But good morning it is.
I was going to do a match review , pap on about our awful form, lack of style and the worst run of results since 1992,but no need, Things have changed, Unai Emery and all of his staff have been sacked. “Don Raul” and his gang of gimps have finally been forced to pull the trigger. The inevitable has happened, but these executives have a lot to answer for. Not a single one of them comes out of this smelling of roses. In the celebration that Emery has gone, we must not lose sight of the total incompetence displayed my these carpetbaggers.
Now the discussion moves on to who come next?
We all have the chance to display our total expertise in selecting and appointing a successor.
The usual names will be thrown into ring.
Nuno Espírito Santo
and so on.
We will all be sure we know who it should be and also who it shouldn’t be.
Let’s look for a moment what we would like. We need a coach that has a vision, an attacking philosophy that matches our established brand, that the players will respect and give 100% to, great communication skills, is universally respected, fluent linguist , in other words, someone like Arsene Wenger. Of course it can’t be Arsene, that ship has sailed and he won’t be seen again at the club, in any capacity. The problem is there is no one that matches that profile. All of them will have some of those qualities but none will have them all.
I could go through all of them and say why I don’t like that particular one, or why I like some more than others, but seriously, who cares? The problem is I would actually trust my judgement more that the chancers that will make the decision, and that isn’t because I have a clue, just that they don’t.
Anyway, i’ll just say my preference would be to be bold and go for Mikel Arteta.
