Meant to add in last answer Andrew that Emery won’t bring enormous backroom team - maybe 5/6 blended with existing staff to retain Arsenal ‘DNA’ but obviously arrivals = departures so key conversations needed with likes of Bould. Unlikely to see any external ex-players integrated

Perplexed & telling me would be “sending tweets” (think it was from the London marathon course) into the live text I was doing. Not sure what’s more surprising - my about turn or your memory

Arsenal close to appointing boss, next week likely. Start of continental model: head coach slots into predefined structure, will contribute to recruitment decisions & have veto. Transfer targets were discussed with interviewees, pre-sales budget ~£50m

No place for Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon in 23-man England squad or back-ups that Gareth Southgate names today. Seen as a sensible decision for 17yo left sided player who’s scored 16 goals in 51 appearances this season & could yet help to PL in Champ play-off final

Also among those contacted by Arsenal during the process is another of their former captains - Patrick Vieira. Unclear if it’s gone any further than that but don’t sense the current New York City FC head coach will be the first-choice candidate for

Arsenal not close to appointing new manager. No agreement yet on chosen candidate, negotiations at relatively early stage, thorough process ongoing, next week looks unrealistic. Once decided, IG/RS/SM will present recommendation to board. Arteta among names being considered

Arsenal hope to name boss by World Cup. want proper process & to respect those in jobs. No idea who but not Simeone, Tuchel ( may confirm Wed), Löw ( stay likely), Rodgers, Faria etc. Don't sense Enrique, hear Allegri plans to leave but unclear on next move
