Premier League 16/17, the super-league of managers?
With the specialist in failure sacked by Chelsea and seemingly going to replace Van Gaal at United, will next season be the League of super-managers?
If it pans out as predicted it'll be:
- Arsenal: Arsene Wenger
- Chelsea: Diego Simeone
- Manchester United: Jose Mourinho
- Manchester City: Pep Guardiola
- Liverpool: Jürgen Klopp
It will be some spectacle to be had. I think Pep next season will trump it with the squad he already has, plus their additions (I reckon Alaba's a dead cert to join them too). I personally think Pep will win the League at least twice in a row, so for me we absolutely HAVE to win the League this year. I know Ix doesn't rate Pep or any specimen to come out of the Catalan club but I honestly think he is the best coach on the planet.
That leads me to the next question. Once Wenger hands up his managerial tactics board and becomes the greatest FIFA president in existence, who do we bring in? None of the above would be tempted for a move to Arsenal (unless Klopp wants to join a big, title challenging club). Ancelotti perhaps?
I just fear that we'll bring in someone like Steve Bould, Dragan Stoijkovic or Remi Garde; which will be the undoing of all of Arsene's great work in recent years. Who are the most promising coaches? Tuchel? Unai Emery?
