Every chance we sign a big established, proven quality manger. The club has no MO either way given that it’s 20 years since we made such an appointment.
[/quote]We had Dein then, who was responsible for getting Wenger.
But now we have people like Kroenke and son, as well as Gazidis, who just aren’t as clued up.
I just hope Kroenke doesn’t have any part in the decision of who the next manager is.

I’d love Allegri but I’m not expecting anything (if Wenger even leaves!), but there’s a tier below that who you’d think we should be able to attract who would be a big step up above someone fairly unknown coming from a small club.
[/quote]The problem we have, is that if we go for the next tier manager, we will fall further behind.
All the other top clubs in the PL have top quality managers so if we don’t get the same, we can wave goodbye to CL football.[quote=“Oliver, post:614, topic:1210, full:true”]
our poor season isnt a fair reflection of our status, potential or attraction to new managers imo.
We were 2nd last season, 3rd before that. Have a modern stadium, a huge fanbase and we are monumentally huge club/commercial powerhouse that is only going to get bigger.
A tactically competant manager would (id imagine) take our exact squad and do wonders, and the premise that we require a full rework from the ground up is a tad premature at this stage.
Neither Chelsea or United have collapsed or lost any kind of status after their bad season(s), why would we?
I don’t think we are as attractive as Man U or maybe Chelsea or Man City who have massive spending potential but we are still one of the most profitable clubs in Europe.
We have the advantage over a lot of other European clubs because we have a massive fan base, we would pay more wages than almost any other top European club, a new stadium, we are in London and we have plenty to spend on transfers.
Also, unlike other top European clubs, there is stability here that others don’t offer
Compared to most top clubs, there can’t be many that are more attractive than us.
I’m sure, if the board really wanted to, they could get Allegri.
But whether they have the same ambition as the supporters is the question.
If we get Allegri, or choose to keep Wenger, or even go for a cheaper inexperienced manager like Howe, we will know what Kroenke is all about.
I think when the board have made their decision, we will find out the true ambition of the club.
