Well Stan Kroenke is Arsenal's owner. Quite well known here since he owns a fuckton of sports teams. From a fan's perspective he's a pretty big piece of shit. Doesn't give a rats ass about winning, all he cares about is profit. Same guy that just moved the Rams to Los Angeles purely for profit purposes.
So as long as Wenger is in UCL, he won't give a fuck about firing him.
Edit: Quoted the wrong post!
http://www.football-italia.net/98431...poli-and-sarriNapoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis criticised Coach Maurizio Sarri and all his players other than Lorenzo Insigne after defeat to Real Madrid.
Insigne had given the Partenopei the early lead at the Bernabeu, but the champions of Europe and the world fought back to win 3-1.
“I think the lads lacked the Neapolitan grit tonight. The only one who showed it was the Neapolitan, Insigne, who scored a very sneaky goal,” De Laurentiis told Mediaset Premium.
“The others simply did not exist. They seemed to be stunned into submission by the glorious figures of Real Madrid, who didn’t even play that well.
“Our inadequacy on the evening meant it actually went well for us, because we could’ve lost by five or six. In Naples it’ll be a cauldron, but if Real Madrid score there, I can imagine the same players will crumble again.
“When you are young, you need to be humble and not arrogant, but Napoli tonight just weren’t there. I don’t want to punish them, though.”
De Laurentiis also seemed to imply using Dries Mertens as a False 9 was a bad idea in Europe, but above all blasted Sarri for the lack of squad rotation throughout the campaign.
“Insigne should be praised for his Neapolitan attitude. I think we expect too much of people who were chosen to take different roles and if we hadn’t had the Milik injury, we might’ve seen a different game tonight.
“I don’t want to get into the decisions, as those are down to the Coach, so I would never dare complain about any choices. I might disagree with the choices, but I wouldn’t dare tell them to anyone, even those who I should’ve perhaps told.
“Nobody said Milik should start this evening in the circumstances. I want to see more experimentation, as that can be healthy.
“Instead people try desperately to defend their own positions, whereas they should defend the club and the fans. The fans aren’t stupid. They realise if we lose a game occasionally, it’s worth it if we figure out who we can and cannot count on.
“Instead we’re reaching the end of a season in which the new signings have barely played at all and we cannot understand why. If we’d known this earlier, we could’ve invested that money elsewhere.
“I think we lacked that grit, that determination. I also say if we think that defending with a high line we can beat everyone, then in some games we probably need to adopt a different tactical approach.
“These defeats are healthy, as they make us learn and reflect. I would not put this difference down to just the quality of the Real Madrid players, because we have players who everyone envies and I often reject offers for them.”
Sacchi: 'ADL damaging Napoli'
http://www.football-italia.net/98437...amaging-napoliArrigo Sacchi claims President Aurelio De Laurentiis criticism of Napoli and Maurizio Sarri “was more damaging than defeat to Real Madrid.”
The patron made some remarkably harsh comments on live television after tonight’s 3-1 Champions League loss at the Bernabeu.
“It’s disappointing, as Napoli are doing such good work both as a club and on the pitch,” said Sacchi on Mediaset Premium.
“That sort of debate is not right at this moment. The De Laurentiis comments were more damaging than defeat to Real Madrid.
“This team cannot be declared a failure because of one match.”
The second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 is at the Stadio San Paolo on March 7.
Sacchi's position seems to be backed by the fans, as on social media and on the various Napoli radio stations, supporters are flocking to condemn De Laurentiis for the timing and tone of his interview.
"Moggi was just a grape in a vineyard of bullshit"
Did they really expect Napoli has a chance against Real?
Lets go all on twitter to tell him to fire Sarri and make Maradona coach.
El perico es puro y con baking soda se corta.
the haven't lost a single a game at home
There are reports Bonucci will be on the bench tomorrow. Since he told Allegri to fuck off and this is a punishment.
Allegri will decide eventually . I bet he swallows this one just like the Dybala and Lichtsteiners cases and plays him. He is the best defender he has.
Poor Allegri. Too much testing
This must be Allegris last season with Juve then, unless they win the CL or get to the final again or something. Rows with there two best players now and still got the most intense part of the season to go
Kicking the ball in a straight line is enough to break down City
Monaco are the real deal. Their domination of Ligue 1, which includes PSG who made easy work of fucking Barca, is not just some lucky streak.
City have one of the weakest defence among top European teams, and they happen to face hottest goal scorers in Monaco. No surprises there.

Coaches want EPL so badly it's a shit league. People make it seem like the best one. The marketing for it is amazing but the on field product is utter shit
Murillo you are my new Hero and you play for Inter
I wouldn't say the on-field product sucks; it's a very entertaining league to watch. The majority of this forum would agree that watching two bottom table EPL sides is more compelling than watching Crotone versus Chievo. Also, managers follow the money, and the EPL has more money than they do brains.
It certainly doesn't help that the best two English teams this year (Chelsea, Man U) aren't playing in the UCL.
And 3-2 for Monaco
What a game
Falcao what a goal
That Dragovic guy...what a fail of a CB
Citys defense has cost some €200m or something + wages to the moon . So shit still. Constantly outplayed tonight.
Stones is a joke df isn't he?!
Bayer scoring one back, Atletico needs to kill this tie with a goal then its over, they need some Griezmagic.
CITY 3-3 crazy match
