(The back of Arséne Wenger – a view for which, despite his success, many Arsenal fans had been praying for quite a while)!


Arséne Wenger

Our bet is that he will stand down and let somebody else have a go! Seriously though, it is now a month since Wenger made his long overdue announcement hat he is leaving his job at the end of the season and the club are, apparently, no nearer appointing a successor.

Whilst we appreciate that they have time on their side they don’t really have time on their side. Everything is relative and it is a fairly safe assumption that the new manager, whoever he may be, will want a full pre-season with the squad.

He is unlikely to meet many of them before the World Cup begins, unless he is appointed in the next three weeks, which means that all his preparatory work for the new season will have to be crammed into the short period of time between holidays and the end of the tournament. Not ideal, but that’s why they get paid the big bucks!


Eddie Howeeh

Unless one of the bigger clubs wants to take a chance with “Steady Eddie” then he is another of those managers who is destined to become one of the longest serving at a smaller club.

He had a brief flirtation with Burnley a few years ago but quickly became homesick for the easy life down on the south coast. He has done remarkably well to keep Bournemouth in the Premier League for as long as he has and seems very settled.

The chances of him leaving are virtually zero.

Brighton & Hove Albion

Chris Hughtonch

Hughton is a manager who has been very much under-appreciated during his career. He was only ever an average player whilst at Tottenham Hotspur but he was reliable in the same way as he is in the manager’s chair.

Successful spells at Newcastle and Birmingham were followed by his first “failure” at Norwich but, once again, since taking the Brigton job he hasn’t looked back.

He will be around the coastal club for a while yet.


Sean Dychesd

A candidate for manager of the season again this time around, Dyche has led Burnley into seventh position and a spot in next season’s Europa League. Often mentioned whenever a “big” job becomes available, he is rarely, if ever, considered for that job.

Quite what he has to do to prove he is one of the Premier League’s best managers is beyond the simple souls here at WSA.

Will he still be at Burnley next season? You bet he will!


Antonio Conteac

The 64,000 dollar question is; will Antonio Conte stay at Stamford Bridge next season? The 10 cents answer is; no he won’t! He’ll be off like a shot back to Italy!

How do we know? Simple, if he was staying he would have said so by now. Chelsea are working behind the scenes to appoint a new man and will announce Conte’s departure shortly before telling a bored and disinterested world with whom they are replacing him.

So that’s the first five of the Premier League managers and a combination of fact, educated guesswork and blind faith in our ability to flukily get things right leads us to the aforementioned opinions on who will be there and who won’t.

Tomorrow we will take a look at the next five.

    Arsenal need a manager with European experience such as Carlo Ancelotti although he never stay’s in a job very long. Sean Dyche will have a chance to prove himself in Europe and if he does well the world will be his oyster.
