Hello lovely Arsenal fans! So after the transfer window has settled as well as our new signings, a feeling of optimism is growing around the club. But the architect behind this is no doubt Sven Mislintat! The man called “diamond-eye” has been given the difficult task of overhauling an old and not very effective scouting system and he’s off to a flying start!
Add Huss Fahmy to the picture in the place of Dick Law and of course Raul Sanllehi, who started this month and you cannot run away from the idea that those people were hired to help smooth the transition from Arsene Wenger to a new manager.
Gary Neville made very good point on why Wenger was given a 2 year deal to get rid of the “uncertainty” over his future which didn’t really help the squad last year, but he also said, that Wenger might wanna leave on his own, but I don’t believe Wenger would literally and metaphorically “wake up” and realise it’s time to leave.
And thus so I still think he’ll “respect” his contract, because most of all, he has Kroenke in his pocket and he makes the final decisions. Besides, Wenger would like to go out like Fergie on a high, but this simply will not happen. Saying all that Arsene has a major point to prove against Tottenham in his slim hopes of the top 4.
The Europa league and Carabao cup can offer Wenger the perfect way to retire as he won’t win a trophy bigger than the FA cup anymore. Both those trophies will be difficult to get, as City wait in the final of one and teams like Dortmund and Atletico Madrid await in the other.
Wenger failed quite a lot of projects at Arsenal, but the stellar players we got in January and a new staff of younger people with great connections across Europe, I don’t see him standing tall for much longer. It’s his final roll of the dice and if it’s not in 6 months, than 18 at best until he goes and I’ll be the happiest man in the world seeing him leave!
