Diego Simeone

Issue we have is Wenger won’t go until his contract is up. Then we have the horrifying yet possible scenario where Wenger extends his contract, clearly a decision that is only up to him and not our useless board, in summer 2019.

The question is, in summer 2019, what on earth kind of shape will our club be in? Will we be contenders? Will Wenger “sabotage” us in that a new manager won’t ever do as well as he did with us? Will another team come in and gazump us from ever acquiring the services of Simeone?

The more I think of it, the less feasible this becomes. A real, crying shame, too, because for the last 5 years he’s been billed as the perfect replacement for Wenger

That isn’t true though really, is it? It’s a very easy way to heap every shred of blame on Wenger and absolve the board and owner of any blame. Of course they (mostly Kroenke) have a big say in whether he gets a contract extension.
