Time to act fast now...

Now that the season is over n we know that the club is practically in a mess with a poor mid table squad n lots of veteran out of touch players who lived through Wenger era with little accountability.
So club needs to appoint the new manager in next couple of days preferably by end of the week so that the new manager can move in early n even observe the team for last few games.
Thanks Arsene, now let's move on quickly instead of running the Wenger farewell show till the end of the season n dragging uncertainty into world cup season.

The transfer window is shorter due to the world cup.

Interesting weekend.

How many disgusted Arsenal fans will really turn up to send him off?

A half-filled stadium will really send a message to gazidis that he needed to do more to win back disenchanted Arsenal fans.

Appointment of new manager n his team is becoming urgent matter every day passing by. This is the major problem of managerial change at the end of the season. The entire team will be gone on holiday n some of the players will be gone on international duty n will return after extended holiday. The new manager will have very little time to asses the squad n the effect of that will spill over to next season. This isn’t like player signing dragging until the last day of transfer window. Thierry Henry said in an interview day after Wenger’s announcement that it’s highly surprising that they already didn’t lineup Wenger’s replacement. Moreover club didn’t go through a managerial change for 22 years that makes the structural changes even more complicated. Club hierarchy need to act NOW very swiftly instead of trying to make Wenger’s farewell some sort of fairytale.
Once Wenger is gone this delay will be very costly n fans will turn against them in matter of time. If they have smaller budget acting swiftly before World Cup in transfer market is even more essential. Club must act now.

We are about to find out for certain who dilly dallys. It had been always said that wenger squables over the last few pounds for every transfer and we let many good players go to other clubs and list the title in the end because of the same.

If the announcement is delayed and we don't have lined up players before the world cup, it will show how incompetent the entire crew is including gazidis

Season is already lost. 6 or 7th place no difference. Focus for Gazidis is to appoint Allegri before end of season. Honouring Wenger can continue in parallel. Between now and end of season is lame duck for Wenger in any event. Agree that if no appointment made before end of season will show entire Arsenal back office to be dysfunctional. Now is the time for Gazidis to lead and earn his paycheck.

Completely agree but a new manager is also going to look at our calamitous defending and lack of teeth in attack and will want to bin a lot of them, rightly or wrongly.

I'm not expecting a stellar appointment it will be difficult to attract a so called big name.No CL football with the resultant loss of revenue a squad that conservatively needs 175 mill spending on it and the negativety that is emanating from the club is not very attractive.
We are now in transition and who can say which current squad members will stay and how those remaining will react to a more forthright manager.A state of softly softly and no consequence management has left us with a lot of players who wilt when the going is tough and it will be interesting how they react to someone who calls them out.The reported 50 mill budget will also be a stumbling block is there a replacement lined up I for one won't be surprised if this becomes yet another farce.

I really don't understand why a new manager was not already appointed. is a sign of respect for wenger?? who knows with Gazidis, the board and Josh Kroenke.

were they not expecting wenger to announce that he is leaving?? the more they are delaying, the more their chances to make a mistake.

we need a manager with a strong character who can overhaul the whole system because a complete culture change is needed.
