Arsenal were defeated by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening by 3-1 with young Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off in the 15th minute, and although the result means absolutely nothing point-wise, it would have been nice if it could have ended otherwise.

This was the game before last with Arsene Wenger in charge of the team, and the players will have a chance of sending the long-enduring manager off with a better result when they meet Huddersfield on Sunday. David Wagner’s men endured a strong test at Stamford Bridge in midweek. They got away with a single point that guarantees their Premier League survival, all but ending Chelsea’s hopes of a top-four finish. Arsenal can be backed at 8/13 to win Wenger’s last game in charge.

As Arsenal’s search for a new manager continues, the Telegraph are now reporting that the club are interested in finding a cheaper, younger option with a more modern style of coaching.

The transfer budget, not counting sales income, for the new man in the post this summer would be £50 million as the ability to get the best out of the players already here and to promote youthful talent will be a key feature of whoever is appointed.

Arsene Wenger – the end of an era and a new beginning 0

As you will certainly know by now, Arsène Wenger has confirmed he will be stepping down as Arsenal manager after this season. Why has he come to this decision? Was it his decision? Is it good for Arsenal? What now? Let’s take a look.

The Legacy

It was on the fateful day of September 22, 1996, that Arsène Wenger was unveiled as the Arsenal manager, and the football landscape of England would never be the same. The Frenchman brought a full-scale revolution to England, employing a ball-on-ground approach so rarely seen on the island. He signed players, turned them into a proper team, made them grow and grew with them.

Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim has revealed that he would like to manage in the Premier League. The Portuguese boss has reportedly emerged as one of the favourites to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal boss in the summer.

Asked about whether he would fancy trying his luck in the English top-flight, he is quoted by the Metro as saying: ‘Well, I think that all managers and players want to coach and play at the highest level and, today, the Premier League is perhaps the biggest national league in Europe,’

‘Everyone would like to have the opportunity to coach here.’

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has denied that Arsenal have held talks with BVB’s highly rated boss Thomas Tuchel. This statement comes after recent speculation in the media that the Gunners had held talks with the former Mainz boss.

No Tuchel talks

In a quote taken from the Daily Mirror Watzke said: “It is a fact that nobody from Arsenal called us. We’re talking about completely fictional stuff here,”

“Some day in May we will sit down and analyse this season. He is still under contract here for another year. That’s why I don’t understand all the speculation.”

Dream Champions League tie turns into a nightmare for Arsenal 1

Posted on February 26, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s so called ‘dream draw’ in the last-16 of the Champions League turned into a nightmare, as French side Monaco came to the Emirates Stadium and grabbed a 3-1 win on Wednesday night in the first leg of the tie. It was a terrible night for Arsene Wenger’s side against one of the Frenchman’s former-clubs.

Surprise

I doubt many fans saw this coming, even Monaco fans. The Ligue One outfit are a team who regularly keep clean sheets, but do not score many goals. In all six of their Champions League group games they scored just four goals, yet they raised their game to fire home three goals in north London.
