I think we’re too hung up on Klopp.
I was watching Forest v Leeds the other night, just cos I appreciate competitive football and not just the vastly overrated Premiership. The commentators mentioned that when the new Leeds manager made his pitch to the board during his interview, he meticulously went through every one of Leeds’ defeats last season and explained how they could have won. He was hired. Instantly. Incidentally, Leeds beat Forest well, and Forest have started better.
My point being, we don’t need a big name. There are some good managers out there. They’re probably thinking “i can put perez in this team, i can incorporate both Mustafi and Koscielny and go 4-4-2, i’d make Ozil make way for Wilshere”…(these arent serious suggestions btw, just how different managers think differently). We will lose games under a new gaffer, and some surprising games too (where we’d fully expect Wenger to recover in a fortnight by winning a home game- cos he has in the past- a new manager may lose and effectively lose 3 on the trot) However, said new manager will always be feeling under pressure to win. There’ll be no 2 year guarantee of his job, like the current incumbent.
I’m not a fan of arsenal fan TV, but a word was mentioned last night- something that has been swimming around my head for the last couple of years. Sabotage. Wenger doesnt care how we do in these last couple of seasons seeing as he wont be there in 2019. This disturbs me as it carries an element of possible truth.
