I am not saying that the people behind the secnes at the club and the Arsenal board are wrong to be making plans to replace our long serving manager Arsene Wenger. It would be daft if they did not put some thought into it, even if they are expecting the Frenchman to stay after his current contract runs out at the end of the year.
The timing, however, of the revelation by Ivan Gazidis on an Arsenal supporter’s forum reported by the Daily Express could hardly have been worse, as this week and specifically today the 22nd of September, marks the 20th anniversary of the prof starting his career as the manager of our great football club.
Apart from the fact that it is a momentous day for Wenger and Arsenal today, the team are actually doing well at the moment so that makes the suggestion that a replacement is ready even worse and could even affect his working relationship with the players.
Seriously Ivan, what were you thinking?
