Manager Merry go round

When Levy fired Poch, Most people did not realise that he would start a chain reaction that will impact on most of the Top 6 clubs including Leicester. Lets face it, the Arsenal board had no plans to fire Emery and they only did that in response to the toxic environment and the comparisons made to Spurs who have obviously gained more points and gone up as a result of Jose's appointment. They had to react.

A quick look at Man united's next few fixtures and Ole is on the brink in my opinion. If Spurs win tomorrow, and I think they will, and City bash them at the weekend, Ole is as good as gone.

Now thats not what the board wants as it is tough to get a good manager midseason but things will get toxic and the club will have no choice. Ive brought Leicester into this because despite all the bull sheit Arro has been posting recently, Rogers is a very Ambitious person and is no doubt eyeing any of those potential positions.

He has form for it aswell after leaving Celtic midseason and if United or Arsenal come calling now he is gone in my opinion. Its not even debatable in my opinion.

its funny that when you also look at the so called stable clubs (City & Liverpool), Liverpool had to fire Rodgers midseason to secure Klopp as they were worried he could be poached by bigger clubs than them, We know City first approached Pep when he left Barca and Pep went to bayern instead then they had to wait 3 seasons to get their man.

You have a few top managers who are not employed (Poch, Allegri) but it must be tough for the Arsenal and United board because its not easy to get a top manager mid season.

Interesting times.

Why would someone leave the 2nd best team in the country to play for a mid table team like Arsenal?
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Well he did sign for Liverpool and they were Dog$hit

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Arsenal and other big clubs like Man U are going through a poor spell but that doesn't destroy over a century of history and the recognition received around the world. Arsenal and Utd's fanbase and wealth dwarfs that of Leicester's who frankly no one outside of the midlands had heard of pre-the Ranieri miracle season.

Yes Leicester are better than both clubs in the short-term but unless they obtain ownership from a billionaire who wants to seriously invest in the club from the stadia to training facilities then they will always remain a mid-table club who occasionally fluke the odd trophy. Both Arsenal and Utd however are sleeping global giants who inevitably will come good.

On this basis Rodgers would be a fool to turn down either job and doing so would just prove that despite being an excellent Manager (like Vardy and the likes of Matt Le Tissier before him) he has little ambition and will always be a big fish in a small pond.

Winning the Premier League, a season consisting of 38 matches, is no fluke by the way. Leicester were the outstanding team that season, apart from one or two “hiccups” along the way.

No team wins that sort of competition by fluke.

It was a one off achievement that probably won't be repeated again for a very long time

It took a combination of many things including the decline of United, Arsenal and the intermittent bad year Chelsea used to have which was that year the Leicester side won it. Not forgetting the surprise element to the the success of it. The surprise element caught out many clubs. Ranieri's tactics of route 1 football helped too.

Good on Leicester to have achieved it, but it no way puts Leicester above the likes Arsenal or United in prestige.

I’m surprised you haven’t mentioned Spurs in prestige (early 1960s of course 😉).

It could, outside chance, be repeated this year.

funny thing is that you are a better team now than when you won it but will comfortably fall short of this season, probably beating your points total of that winning season.

I think you need to get an European co-efficient first before you can be considered as prestigious!

In all seriousness, though Spurs have Jose and not looking at Bodger...sorry Rodger!

People like you often ignore key arguments. In this case, it's that football managers have egos. Usually huge ones.

Rodgers would look at Arsenal and think that HE could be the difference between their current position and them being a top side.

Personally I don't think he comes to Arsenal.. not sure we're even strongly after him to be honest, but still, discarding it as nonsense because Leicester are currently on a good run of form is stupid.
