Allegri bookies favourite for nest arsenal manager.

Just thinking back to wolhat ed02 has said and wondering if we'd be better off if we had waited for him instead of jumping the gun and getting jose.

I guess time will tell.

I do believe jose will have us winning more silverware though. Another transfer window, a few more of his signings and we'll no doubt improve.

I also believe that as he becomes more confident in our defensive work we'll see more freedom for the forwards to express themselves, which should also lead to more attractive football.

Should be an interesting season ahead and I hope arsenal do get Allegri, just to see what we'd be missing.

Think you’re right Red: he’s played cautious football because he hasn’t been able to fully trust the defence. When that’s more solid, I think it’ll be more attacking too.

Jose has always played cautious football no matter what he thinks of the defence he has. That won't change, Jose won't change he hasn't in 20 years, he won't now.

Any plan which involves having LVG as our manager for 3 years is a bad plan.

Didn't his Real Madrid team get the record number of goals in a La Liga season? I would take that if we are cautious.

Agreed shappy, but it I think it will be more attacking than it is now, just not exactly pep/ klopp levels of attacking play.

Why should he change? His style has bought him tons of success.

I don't get the love in with Allegri. Another cautious manager, managing in a poor league with a team that has won the league six years on the trot. There is no competition in Italy. Only Napoli have given Juve some competition.
We need a manager with some attacking ideas if we're to replace Mourinho. Or better still, send Mourinho's assistant, Faria, to arsenal and get Liverpool's assistant Zeljko Buvac to become Mourinho's right hand man and get us playing more aggressive and attacking football.

Purely on looks, I'd take the Atletico Assistant in a heart beat (German Burgos), he looks like a real monster and would turn a few of our boys into men in no time!

GDS, one swallow does not a summer make.

Once in 20 years has Mourinho thrown off the shackles. And many will tell you in that season against half decent teams he still had one eye on defence.

Bare in mind in that Real Madrid side he had Ronaldo at the peak of his powers, Bale before he got injured by every passing blade of grass, Benzema had his best ever season and Modirc was also at his best. They had 5-6 truly world class players at their peaks.

Next season will be more of the same from Mourinho, hopefully we can turn silly dropped points into wins, and City won't be quite as brilliant. But don't expect Mourinho to turn into an offensive manager.

Did he have bale? That season i don't think so.

Did he have modric that season? I don't think so.
It was a good team. With Ronaldo benzema ozil kaka (hardly played) higuhin marcello Alonso pepe ramos arbeloa casillas lots of really top class players not too many world class but they did have a great season breaking lots of long standing records they still stand today.

I should bloody hope against half decent teams he had one eye on defence, that’s how to play, surely nobody has any issue with how we play against the top teams as long as we get the results, it is the lacklustre performances against the weaker teams that are the problem. If we won 5-0 2 weeks on the run then defended for our lives and won 1-0 against City I’m sure people would accept that.
