Bould and Ljungberg

Have swapped roles according to sky sports.

Bould will oversee the under 23s and work with Mertesaker to develop young players while Freddie joins our coaching staff.

Very happy to see Bould moved on and glad Freddie is stepping up. It suggests we will be deploying our young players more this season for which I'm happy.

I still don't know what Bould is still doing at Arsenal.



Wenger Is Gone Now So Can We Be Allowed To Breathe Now???

Potentially a good move. Bould was previously successful as a youth coach and Freddie appears to be a coach very much on the up.

Freddie has also done a good job with our U23s and could play a key role in helping to bring through one of our best crops of youngsters in a while, which we may come to rely on given our financial situation...

Was he? I thought the U18's were pretty bad when he was the coach?

Bould is like an unflushable turd.

I thought it was after he stepped up they went to sh*t?

Either way, he's now been demoted from Wenger's #2 to Emery's #3 to U23's boss. Maybe they should just get rid?

If he had any pride he would resign



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

We scored a late goal against someone recently, a big goal at the Emirates, and the whole bench lept from their car seats in celebrations - the players, the coaches, the physios.

Emery ran around like a mad man, before being swarmed by his coaching staff. Everyone looked over the moon, everybody except Bould who didn't move a muscle, not even in the ones in his face as he sat back completely emotionless while all around him were briefly euphoric.

He looked like the loneliest man in the whole world during those few seconds when the camera panned on to the bench after the goal. He wasn't the most animated figure under Wenger either, but this indicated something bigger, a detachment of sorts. It spoke volumes.

If I had to guess, I'd bet he felt quite isolated from the very start. I'd bet he felt isolated when Emery and his hoard of coaches started communicating mainly in Spanish all day. I'd also bet that Emery was told he had to keep Bould as the assistant, perhaps geared toward some sort of continuity, and I'd also bet that Bould personally requested to take a step down to the Under-23s.

One suggestion is that as Llunjberg so good with under 23s the next step is he helps integrate them in to the first team as a first team coach

Had a quick look at his record and you're right, he did do well with the youth teams. My mistake.
