    Can I take Ryan Mason back instead?

    If not, Jose. Nuno’s literally a B-tech version of Jose without the successful history.

    Sorry mate, it was a trick question <whistle>

    But yeah, Nuno is looking like he's lost the plot already. What was happening with Fonseca with your lot, weren't you about to appoint him and then pulled out ?

    Looks like he might be Toon bound.

    The contract was literally about to be signed - Fonseca even confirmed it - and then Paratici pulled the plug and decided to go for Nuno.

    I’ve liked Paratici’s signings so far but he totally ****ed up the manager appointment and I’ll be surprised if Nuno even makes it til the end of the season, apparently we can sack him for free if we don’t make top four… and we definitely ain’t doing that.

    Further than that I think. He was the fan’s 10th+ choice and the club’s 7th or 8th… shambles, lol.

    From memory the club either tried going for, or showed an interest in:

    Nagelsmann - got snapped up by Bayern
    Rodgers - ruled himself out although not sure we ever approached
    ten Hag - signed a new one year extension
    Potter - was also massively wanted by a lot of fans
    Rangnick - briefly linked, not sure how concrete the interest was
    Fonseca - plug pulled last minute
    Gattuso - **** knows why and the fans actually stopped it from happening <laugh>

    And Maria Guardiola. She's smoking hot tbh and they've been seen out together plenty.

    I've said it on our board but I really do believe Levy's long term plan is to re-sign Poch, which I personally think is a terrible idea, at least for the foreseeable future anyway.

    Although Paratici is the one making footballing decisions right now, it sounded like he had to heavily persuade Levy in the first place to hire Nuno (for once Levy was right!) and the fact he only sanctioned a two year deal with the option of sacking him for free if he doesn't get top four (which he won't), I think there's hope on Levy's part that Poch may be available that summer should he fail to win the CL and get binned by Paris.

    I think Poch will end up at Utd personally.

    Spurs probably should have gone for somebody like Graham Potter, who's shown he's got the minerals at Brighton and is probably ripe to take on a bigger challenge. It will take time whoever you bring in, so you have to be patient. I think you need to clear out the likes of Kane, Ali, Ndombole, Dier, and bring in some younger players, maybe through the academy and build from there.

    It's a bit like us with Arteta, he's definitely got what it takes imo, but it's a project that's going to take time to develop, as we have one of the youngest sides in the prem right now. I know we ain't pulling up trees, but most Arsenal fans can see what we are trying to achieve and the potential that these players have got.

    Trouble is, this game is a results business and a lot of managers aren't afforded the time to build a project.

    Maybe, though I think Utd may target someone like Conte if Ole does get the boot, which doesn't actually seem likely right now.

    Clear out Kane? We're short on quality players as it is, getting rid of one our two top class players would be footballing suicide at the moment. The other three I'd agree on though, amongst a good few others.

    Agree on Potter, that's who most of us want and did so in the summer, if we don't go for him soon I think he'll end up elsewhere, I thought Newcastle would've gone for him and given him the job of rebuilding them with their tiny budget but seems Fonseca is the favourite.

    As for Arteta and you lot, I just hope he stays for many years, you're going nowhere under him in my opinion, similar to Utd with Ole. I've also said on your board already that I think you lot overrate some of your players and then seemingly wonder why you've struggled in recent seasons.
