Firstly, before anyone even thinks that I am suggesting that Arsene Wenger be sacked, I’M NOT!!
What I have been thinking about is, come next summer our current boss has a dilemma. Does he sign a new contract or will he think he’s had enough and either move upstairs to the boardroom, or will he head off to new sunny shores? Maybe he’ll chance his luck in the MLS, seems the popular place to go 😉
What if chooses to leave? Over the last few seasons fans in the blog world have called for his head, suggesting he be replaced with one of Martin O’Neil, Bilic, Bould, Adams, Bergkamp to name just a few, but I’ve a different name to bring into the mix…
Joachim “Jogi” Löw – how many of us raved about the way Germany played? How many of us thought he used his substitutes at just the right time?
Funny enough, Jogi’s contract with Germany has expired according to Sky Sport, so maybe its time for the Arsenal Board to find out exactly what Wengers intentions are. If there is a hint of him leaving Arsenal, would it not be a good idea to go and head hunt this manager and secure his signature now, ready to take over when Wenger leaves???
Joachim “Jogi” Löw is clearly a believer in the style of football we currently and I reckon he could be the perfect replacement for our current boss. He’s an ex attacking midfield player from the German League who then went into club management following retirement. He managed clubs that don’t jump out at you but Germany didn’t take long to get him involved in their national set up, so he must have been pretty good in their eyes.
In fact Löw surprisingly became assistant coach of Germany under Jürgen Klinsmann on 1 August 2004. Klinsmann and Löw had known each other for years, having met at a coaching school – When Klinsmann was appointed as the German manager, the first thing he did was call up Löw to work by his side. Klinsmann saw Löw as a ‘talented tactician and wanted him to bring in his fresh ideas.
Klinsmann and Löw formed a formidable team and got Germany back to winning ways, they reached the semi-final of the Confederations Cup before losing to Brazil 3–2 in the best match of the tournament. Germany then defeated Portugal 3-1 in the third place match.
In 2006, Klinsmann stood down and Löw took over the managers position.
This last World Cup showed us what a good manager he is, could he cut it at a top club like ours? Would life be as easy without having the players he currently has at his disposal??
Under Jogi, Germany have lost only 9 times in 55 Games, not bad, eh?
As long as Jogi changed a few habits and stopped picking his whatnot, I wouldn’t be too disappointed if he were our manager one day, would you??
This is disgusting, so don’t watch it if you are fragile 😉
Of course, my first choice would be that Arsene Wenger stay and see his Youth Project bare great fruit….
Talking of Youth Project, The Mirror reports that we are in a battle with the Spuds for Connor Wickham. He would cost around £8M which is a lot for a seventeen year old striker, but as he’s English, what do we expect. Knowing Wenger, this rumour could be true, Theo Walcott is a good example of him paying big money for an Englishman.
Citeh have added another player to their squad, so best Arsene get a move on in the transfer market, it’s going to be a whole different Premier League next season and we don’t want to fall behind early….
Have a good day all, tomorrow we play again, hoorah 🙂
