    glad to see movement in the right direction, with guys who have worked for big clubs.

    I love the way AFC takes it slow and steady.

    I think the club is just trying to keep up with modern times. They've realised that a figure like Wenger is the last of his kind and when he leaves the club will need a proper structure in place instead of handing all of the power to just one man.

    5 years late but positive move nevertheless.

    Was actually wrong about Sanllehi, looks like he is our director of sport after all but can’t be called one because Wenger ridiculed the role :lol:

    Reading Barca fans on reddit, they say Sanllehi wasn't the guy who chose targets, but instead handled the negotiations and made sure the deals got closed. I imagine he'll have the same role here but we'll see.

    From reddit:


    Raül Sanllehí - Head of Football Relations
    Sven Mislintat - Chief Scout & Head of Player Recruitment
    Darren Burgess - Head of High Performance
    David Priestley - Dealing with the mental preparation for the players
    Huss Fahmy - Head of Contract Negotiations
    Richard Allison - Performance Nutritionist
    Per Mertesacker - Head of Academy (Next season)
    Jens Lehmann - First-Team Coach

    Pretty good stuff.

    Makes sense. Guess he's the new big Dick, than.

    Would love to know (but too lazy to research) his involvement in the Neymar debacle.

    How would his role be different from Huss Fahmy in that case?

    Huss Fahmy does player contracts, Sanllehi would presumably negotiate transfer fees, installments etc.

    Probably fine tuning the ins and outs deals, structure and whatnot.

    Not sure, but maybe Fahmy is more on the legal/technical side of contracts with Sanllehi leading the charm offensive.

    Pretty sure Wenger is going this summer we are preparing to be without him. Smart deals from Ivan.

    Must admit my respect for bald people getting higher

    Good move, seems the club is finally starting to wake up. Hopefully not too late but we'll see in 2018.

    It'll be interesting to see what our next set of transfer targets will be. We probably still won't be able to compete for the best for the time being but it's been a while since we've gotten proper hidden gems, and I wouldn't mind those.
