Honestly I don't think JM will win the Arsenal fans with his management capability... given United hated his approach without actually understanding he is a pragmatic chess management style... he doesn't use one strategy to go out and beat his opponents. He uses his players in such a way the entire season works out for him... so the whole defensive football is absolute hogwash.We still have people asking for Arteta or Henry - yes, seriously. As for who I'd pick, I'd skip any of the usual British "relegation specialists" at the bottom of your list (there's another club in Manchester they may want to join). Javi may have had a decent run, but his team is still where he left them: fighting relegation.
Allegri or Mourinho are the most experienced, the latter actually having won 3 EPL titles, and several other trophies (2x CL with Porto and Inter), so would be the better choice of the two because he wouldn't need time to settle in and get a feel for the league - and he wins, no matter where he goes. Full stop. Even his "flop" at United gave them the Europa League. People saying he's too defensive? That's our major ****ing problem right now! We can't keep a damned clean sheet to save our lives! Allegri might be more balanced with attack and defence, but we're already stuck with a manager who can't communicate in English (with the media OR the players, apparently).
As for the Klopp/Guardiola example, Jurgen took a nearly-there Liverpool team and turned them into actual title contenders (and won a CL after 2 consecutive finals, not to mention the Bundesliga with Dortmund), while Pep won the EPL with the most points in history. Yes, success has been bought, and Pep walked into every FIFA FUT team, but whoever they're managing they demand entertaining, attacking football - something Arsenal was famous for, even being compared to Barcelona for a very long time. And that's the type of manager we need. Someone who demands the best. Chooses his own captain. Has a presence on the touchline.
Yeah but he would be my choice now. I originally wanted Jurgen to come to Arsenal when Wenger retired as he plays a free fast paced game, but alas he went to Liverpool before Wenger decided to retireThat would be a step down at this point because Atletico is only 1pt behind 1,2,3 log leaders.
The Simeone move shoul've happened last year or after they lost the CL again but Diego personally didn't want it.

Tonight's result didn't even upset me. I was almost expecting it I guess. Arsenal have made me numb.On current form we really shouldn't have expected better. Though a lot of promise was in evidence and some good chances got missed before they score. Guess they also missed some before then
We know for a fact money hasn't been a problem. He brought in Luiz, Saliba (loaned back, sure), Leno, Sokratis and Tierney. Any reason he refuses to start the latter? The club apparently requested that he be withdrawn from the Scotland squad - presumably so that he could play today. He has the potential (and we've already seen it) to be our best LB since Cole.Emrey has inherited a garbage defence that he hasn't been able to fix in the 3 transfer seasons he has been in charge. A lot may have to do with the funds he has available to him
I suppose I'm the only one not surprised with the results from this squad. The moment David Luiz was signed out of desperation I knew what to expect from the squad and so far I've been able to predict most results fairly accurately.We know for a fact money hasn't been a problem.

Not sure which commentary you had, but the stream I was watching said he had $120mil+ sitting on the bench today - and that was just 3 players he signed this season. Even when he has the personnel available (this was the first time since like 2012 we had no injuries and a full squad) he doesn't appear to know what to do with them - we've been waiting for ages to see Özil behind Auba, Laca and Pepe (who would've been perfect for a counter attacking setup away from home). Yet he only brings on Pepe at the death hoping he'd pull another Europa League miracle.
And don't get me started on his preferred formation - a year and a bit later, and he still doesn't know what it is.
Emery isn't a terrible manager at all - he's just not compatible for the EPL, or Arsenal.
