I totally agree - managers, even the best ones get rotated all the time after periods of ineffectivity. I think in the natural process of things it's just time for him to move on and for Arsenal to revamp. Since the Invincibles, you don't see headlining names coming to
Arsenal. Assuredly, Wegner brings up these kids and then they go on to be stars (Nasri? Fabregas?) But he is turning the Gunners into a feeder club. They haven't posed a serious threat in Europe for years.

Music to venessian's ears, no? I read that they're throwing around Ancelotti's name to come in and replace him. I think it might be interesting if they could force some sort of move to bring in Capello, vacating the English seat for Redknapp.
Although this sort of quick-sacking brings up another point that I think about frequently - how much impact does a manager really have on the performance of his team? I mean, short of personel decisions, how do they directly impact the pitch? You have a championship team one season and then they struggle the next... is it always the managers fault? Sometimes I think that team squads need to be shaken up more frequently than the manager... but just opinion. Thoughts?
Ex. Would Spain still dominate if it wasn't Del Bosque at the helm? Almost assuredly. Would Barça if it wasn't Guardiola? Probably too. I mean - Madrid, second place finish for Pelligrini, Mourinho, who knows who else (just about everyone over the last five years baring the 07-08 season, I think... That to me screams more personel issues rather than the manager.Edited by El Argentino - 9/21/11 at 8:21am
