Fuck no.

So happy to see this early enough that Arsenal can choose a replacement coach without having to scramble over the summer.

Klinsmann will never get a serious job in soccer again. He duped the USSF after two embarrassing departures from German jobs.

Yes, but you also know that somewhere some moron is tweeting it without a hint of irony.

BIG SAM!!!
He used to say that he could coach Real Madrid, so Arsenal would be a piece of cake.

From 2010:
"I'm not suited to Bolton or Blackburn, I would be more suited to Inter or Real Madrid," Allardyce said. "It wouldn't be a problem to me to go and manage those clubs because I would win the double or the league every time. Give me Manchester United or Chelsea and I would do the same, it wouldn't be a problem. It's not where I'm suited to, it's just where I've been for most of the time.

"It's not a problem to take me into the higher reaches of the Champions League or Premier League and [it] would make my job a lot easier in winning it."

Fat Sam also said he wants to coach the US team.

Of course, but the panic I felt thinking about it was real.

Nick Hornby, author of 'Fever Pitch', on Wegner's leaving.
It's true that most football fans have been disappointed more than they have been elated, but the boys' parents remember something else: an eight-year period in which Arsenal were as good as anyone in Europe. To own a season ticket during that time was heaven, a passport to the best football in Britain, occasionally to the best entertainment in London. The team probably didn't win as much as it should have done -- bring up the subject of the Invincibles 2003-04 season with any Arsenal fan and the catastrophic defeat to Chelsea in the quarterfinals of the Champions League will be mentioned in the next sentence -- but my memories of Arsene Wenger's time will always involve Henry and Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires and Freddie Ljungberg, Patrick Vieira and Sol Campbell, Double-winning seasons and breathtaking, muscular, deadly football. The worst thing the opposition could do against Arsenal in the early 21st century was win a corner: you were much more likely to concede than to score.
