Nuno Esperito Santo

10/11 favorite to be Arsenal’s next manager.

Would you be happy with this appointment?

To be fair he has done a very good job at Wolves but apart from that I know nothing about him. Also imagine we will have to pay Wolves quite a lot to get him...I like him but am wary he may be a flavor of the month manager. I’ve read comments from Wolves fans a few weeks ago criticising his negative approach aswell, if that was to carry on at Arsenal, he would need results or the fans would turn.

Coincidentally, Emery is even money favorite to get the chop next. Marco Silva has drifted from 1/12 to 6/4 in the last 24 hours.

'One-Nuno to the Arsenal' has a nice ring to it...

Wolves are one of the most boring sides in the league, so no, I wouldn't want him bringing that negative football here.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The last three Premier League games, Wolves have had 57 shots on goal (including 22 against Arsenal). Arsenal have only mustered 30 in that period. Yet we are are the boring ones.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
In fairness to Sheriff, he did say 'one of...'.

We are also terribly boring to watch under Emery. Replacing one negative manager for another doesn't exactly feel inspiring.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I wouldn't call him a negative manager. He had a negative spell earlier in the season and tends to revert to safety first when on a bad run. However, the majority of his time at Wolves he has played a 3-4-3 formation and we have looked to dominate possession and score goals.

We are doing that again at the moment with Jota, Jimenez and Traore up front and three midfielders across the back line.

Fair enough. I've not seen enough of Wolves to comment either way tbh.

Fair play. That doesn't usually stop most other posters on here.

My preferred choice is Diego Someone.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

You would think it is time he moved on from Atletico.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
By the same token why does anyone think Santo or Wolves wd agree for him to join Arsenal, or Rodgers quitting Leicester for North London? It's all academic.

Just seen the article on the BBC. Really bad situation here. If I was Emery I'd be extremely angry at that - either the club are opening courting replacements or the media's stirring, either way it's out of order. If Mourinho was in this position, with articles like that being written on the BBC, all hell would break loose.

But on the topic of Nuno as Arsenal manager, interesting proposition. I really rate him, was my first choice to replace Sarri in the summer, but that was more to do with him fitting that Jose/anti-football winning identity we've had the last 15 years - he'd fit us stylistically (the pre-Lampard Chelsea), Arsenal's a bit different.

Wenger did a lot of good shaping Arsenal's modern day image of being an aesthetically good football outfit, even when his abilities whined that image of his "Arsenal way" didn't. Nuno would be a completely revert back to the Boring Boring Arsenal days, he might do well but the club's image might suffer globally & I'm not sure he's a safe enough bet to risk that, especially following Emery's pedestrian style of football. Mourinho yes. Conte yes. Allegri yes. There's a certain level of prestige they bring themselves as established winners. Nuno??? I dunno.

Bbc aren't a reliable source anymore. Would not be surprised if they are stirring.

Would prefer Allegri or Rodger but having a boring manager like Nuno wouldn't be bad. I actually think we need to get bk into that boring mode where we learn to keep clean sheets. The team has had no defensive discipline for years and it probably takes a whole new approach to change that.

Nuno auditioned for the job today by giving away a 2 goal lead
