    There are so many options available to the new manager with the squad of players at his disposal . As a new manager at Arsenal would he want to work within a strict restriction of always having to balance the books which Arsene Wenger had to do on transfers , or maybe for the first year be given a substantial transfer budget to get the players he wants for his style of play

    Before us the Gooners will be continuing in our dabbling into which Gunners should stay and which ones should leave duing the coming summer window, I will want us to wait till tomorrow’s Thursday night to see if Arsenal will qualify for the ELC final match this season by knocking out Atletico Madrid their opponent team in the semifinal 2nd leg match at Vincente Calderon after the 1st leg match at the Ems ended 1-1 to leave Arsenal with all to do in Madrid tomorrow.

    As for now, I for one is focusing on the outcome of our away match to Atletico than to be focusing now on next summer Arsenal incoming and out coming transfers. For definitely, as us all know, the new Arsenal manager will have his own plans regarding to new players recruitment and the selling of some Gunners currently at the club vis a vis the Arsenal board’s CEO to execute when he comes in and sits on the Arsenal’s manager seat to begin work.

    big problem with all arsenal players we have since 2005, was a wenger mix, and not a proper mixture or balance. we have seen all season ozil never really connects any balls to lacazette, same with ramsey who prefers striker position leaving midfield exposed like first leg to atletico.thats why nabil fekir becomes important, cause ramsey keeps on abandoning his position to play striker, cutting off supply to striker, exposing midfield each game, making lacazette fall deep to collect balls. if ramsey and ozil problem is solved, even before thursday away to atletico, expect a win, if welbeck and lacazette get tons of balls in the box. just like real vs bayern, balls were played thru attacking midfield mostly, as expected in pressure games. now if ozil switches off, then welbeck, lacazette and ramsey r all in box waiting for balls, we r two player position off meaning our midflied and defence get pressure. wenger out, problem should be solved today.

    I am a true believer in the youngsters : Holding, Chambers, Mavropanos, AMN, Nelson…
    Yet we have to be aware that neither Kos nor Mustafi will be available before septembre as they’ll feature in the WC, I have no idea if Bellerin will, – and that is if they do not get hurt. Kos has his heel issues and may not be available as often next season. Do you really believe we can field a central defense of 2 of Holding, Chambers, Mavropanos to begin the season ? Sure enough they will not be on holiday and will start with quite a few weeks practice done together. But is such a gamble going to pay off ?

    On the other hand, I must admit that unless we find the ideal central defender with an italian passport….the choices for one who can start from day one are going to be rather restricted.

    As for Lacazette, ok, 13 for 30, but how many since he came back ? Trading a 54 million (or was that more) player after 12 months now that he has gotten used to the particular way of life in the PL makes no bloddy sense to me. But then…looking at other teams and coaching changes, guess nothing out to surprise us….

    Rumour has it that Nelson is off to Wolves for a seasons loan. Not sure that I would be walking out whilst the manager’s position is in limbo.

    There would be no logic in a wholesale replacement strategy.

    We have seen in the past when a team has had a windfall and bought in a lot of players, they have suffered as a result, I can think of the Scum a few years ago when they sold Bale and Everton a year or so ago.

    We will surely see the quality of the new manager if he wants to have a clear out and bring in loads of players, or whether he sees a future in what we have, but may need to tweak it a bit.

    If it is the former, I would be worried.

    I am convinced the new manager is already in harness and was chosen because he wanted to continue the Wenger legacy, rather than start his own.

    I also believe that the future of our defence rests with Chambers, Holding and the Greek.

    They represent forward planning.
