    I think Sanchez just needs to be on a team where he feels like everybody is as focused on winning as he is. Özil could stay on with Wenger here, Sanchez and Wenger's relationship seems damaged beyond repair.

    Makingtrax Arséne Wenger once said "I will miss you"

    Hadn't thought of that. Maybe he'll stay after all.

    Pretty sure this is so he gets a a full season with Wenger, same with the Dortmund guy, gives them a year to settle in ready for the Boss's departure end of 18/19.

    one more year in the same vein would gut all fans and totally alienate a big chunk

    MINIMUM for him to stay on is UEFA and FA and fourth, and neither of those are a given

    Anyone else feel like these changes were the reason Wenger took so long over signing a new contract? It sounds like this is something he has been pushing for.

    Very very interesting listening to the wonderful Phillipe Auclair. He gives us an idea about what kind of expertise Sven Mislintat and Raul Sanllehi might bring to the club.

    Definitely think along those lines , those Burgess and Sven were ones that he identified and he's known Sanllehi for awhile now .

    Lol he was asking “what’s the director of football? Do they direct which way the football goes?” So I somehow doubt it is something he wanted. In fact I’m sure he didn’t considering how long he’s been in management without these sort of roles in place.

    Maybe he agreed to it if it was on his terms or people he handpicked or something.

    Sanllehi is not a director of football though .

    I don’t even know or care who he is (don’t think it will make any different at all)

    More referring to Wenger’s suspected attitude towards additional backroom staff of that nature.

    Sanllehie will network with agents, other clubs etc, and look to close deals with players as part of his gig?

    Think this has been one of the biggest issues at Arsenal post Dein, who was regarded as one of the smoothest operators in world football.

    I’m sure this is absolutely fine with the majority of Arsenal fans providing we keep scouting excellent young talent, finding players who cost little but bolster excellent talent and once a while sign a well established World Class player to get us excited eg: Lacazette, Aubamyeang.

    We need competence at board level too. Paying market rate wages, Contract negotiations planned well in advance and not letting out best talent run into final year, identify the stand out young scouted talent and get deals done.

    No more stories like “we missed out on Ronaldo cause of £100k” or “ we was in advanced negotiations with Mbappe’s father”

    Longer snippet here. Seems we aren't going to be making any big first-team upgrades in January unless it's an emergency.

    I think that's probably not a big deal. The squad - while lacking certain elements - is strong enough at the top of the field, it's just organizing our game everywhere else to bolster the current results we've been getting.

    Yet to be convinced by this double act, I mean it hardly rolls of the tongue does it. They say they’ve known each other for 7 years so hopefully there is a good understanding there, but on the face of it it looks like two people thrust together and given the keys to the house when neither expected it.

    Also, who represents us? At an executive level a club of our size needs representation at Uefa meetings and so on, who does that now? Do any other clubs operate with such a shared model?

    Raul will be the main man IMO. He's basically a director of football. He's not got that exact title but that's what he is - I'd imagine he's the authority on all football matters currently. And he had that title at basically one of the most successful clubs of the last decade. I wouldn't worry too much about that.

    Sanllehi looks and sounds like a guy who gets sh*t done
