Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour is of the opinion that the Gunners should move quickly to secure the services of Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager.
Parlour spent 12 years playing for Arsenal, from 1992 to 2004, netting 32 goals in 466 appearances in all competitions. In that time his industrious approach to the game – reflected in his impeccable work-ethic, helped the club and different teams under the command of Arsene Wenger win three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, a League Cup and one UEFA Cup Winners Cup. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal are preparing to engage in negotiations with Carlo Ancelotti over the vacant managerial post, according to numerous reports.
Ancelotti was sacked by Napoli on Tuesday, despite his team beating Genk by 4-0 on the same evening to secure qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League. The group, containing the reigning European champions Liverpool who suffered their only defeat of the season so far in Naples, as well as a surprisingly good RB Salzburg team, was by no means easy to navigate through. However, despite that success, it was the domestic side of things that saw the 60-year-old fall out of favour with the club hierarchy. Napoli sit seventh in the Serie A with 21 points from 15 games to their name; 17 less than table-toppers Inter Milan. Also, there are still reports of a rift raging between several members of the team and club president Aurelio De Laurentiis, indicating that all is not well over there and it would be unfair to blame Ancelotti alone for the woeful results. .......Read more here.....

Pretty soon it’ll be a year since Arsene Wenger left Arsenal, in a move that many fans had seen coming for quite some time now.
