he should be non committal/vague or say nothing. not staunchly defend them like this. its in his interests for them to remain.

Watery useless c.unt of a manager who knows that any decent and ambitious owner would throw his basque arse out of the club on the spot :evil: :censored: :censored: :censored:

What would you expect him say? :lol:



Nothing - honestly I think he should be telling the media that he is there to talk about the game and that anything off the pitch is nothing to do with him. Even at a push if he said something along the lines of the owners being committed and having big plans, I could understand, but to come out sputing shite about what great people the kroenkes are ?? Please do one you c.unt (not you clummo :wink: )

He'd be out of job then so he wouldn't say anything of the sort. Sadly. :lol:

Some reports today that, hierarchy at the club aren't happy and he could be sacked if he fails to land elge.
There will be fans dissatisfaction towards both Arteta and the Kroenkes in the lead up to next season.
Arteta could well be sacrificed in order to take pressure off the Kroenkes!
Downside is, the Roma manager is being mooted as a possible replacement, he himself is under pressure after an unconvincing season in serie A.

I did suggest that the other day - I would be very happy with that regardless of their motive

This name, his future, depends on what happens over the next two, maybe three games.

Reports from Italy are saying that Fonseca is soon to be sacked and replaced by the pikey Sarri.

Just a load of bullshit journalist speculation to fill column inches to say we're contemplating Fonseca.

I still have a gut feeling that Arteta will go if we get ousted by Unai's yellow submarine.

I suspect the wolves manager will leave them in the summer - the old "taken them as far as he can" adage springs to mind. Again he wouldnt be my first choice if arteta was sacked, but no doubt he would be a massive upgrade on pep's cone boy
I reckon he'll be taking over from Ryan Mason.

If we are looking for a manager to replace Arteta, I'll throw in Nico Kovac's name in the hat. He's got a decent record 55% win rate, and currently sitting 3rd in ligue 1 with Monaco. He did well with Eintract Frankfurt and Bayern Munich. He's certainly turned Monaco from relegation candidates to having a shot of winning the title with 5 games remaining.

He wasn't a popular appointment at Bayern and had a bit of a mixed bag performance whilst there. Only lasted 2 seasons didn't he?

After completing the domestic double with them. Not sure the reason why he fell out of favour. Knows how to organise a team to challenge for the league. Was Bayern's manager when they beat Spurs 7-1. As good as credentials as you need.

Also lost 5-1 at home to Frankfurt amongst other indifferent performances though.

Yes, and your point is?
Over 3 seasons won Frankfurt from 18th to 6th winning them a first trophy in 26 years. Completed a domestic clean sweep with Munich in his only full season, taking over from Guardiola. Turning Monaco round from relegation fodder to title contenders with no budget. Certainly, within the scope and budget we're gonna have next season.

My point is that I don't rate him. Just my opinion. 8)
