I asked four supporters four questions on what they would do this summer, from transfers to managerial appointments.
First up is Jamie Brundle:
1) As we all know, someone new will grace the Emirates dugout from next season, who do you want as the next manager? I want a tactician. Max Allegri would be my first choice.
2) Many had had enough of dire performances and poor results, are you happy about the change? I have wanted change for some time. I have enormous respect for Arsene Wenger; a man of principle, integrity and the upmost loyalty, but it has been clear for a while that, despite three FA Cups in 5 years, we have been regressing, so yes I am happy with the change. My wish would have been that he went out on a high after last year’s FA Cup triumph that made him the most successful FA Cup winning Manager ever, along with an Invincible League winning campaign,
3) It’s expected to be a season or two of transition, so what are our realistic expectations for the next couple of years? That will depend on the appointment and money available to him. I think the realistic goal would be at the very least to get us back into the Champions League, whoever is appointed.
4) The squad arguably needs strengthening- so if given £100m, who are your ins and outs? For me the defensive spine of the team needs addressing, goal-keeper; centre -half and a defensive midfielder. Oblak/Leno, Koulibaly/ Manolas, the DM so difficult; the club are being linked with Meyer, but I would like someone tall, physical with presence, like Nzonzi/ Carvalho/ who would sit and break up play like Gilberto used to do. I would also sell Ospina and Mustafi plus get Campbell/ Perez off the books.
