Wenger and Arsenal 'Mutually' Terminate

Sensational news this morning here at Sky Sports; Wenger and Kroenke agree a 'Change of Roles' at The Emirates.

The club released this statement this morning;

Arsenal Football Club and Arsene Wenger have agreed a Mutual Termination of Arsenes managerial contract at the club, The club does not wish the fans nor media to view this as a 'Sacking' of a manager, Merely a Changing of Roles as Arsene will now begin to undertake his role as a Technical Director at the Football Club, We thank Arsene for all he has achieved at the Club and ask fans to Remember the highs of the 'Invincibles' as the Marquee point of his Arsenal Career.

Chris Kamara told Sky Sports, 'It's Unbelievable Jeff' and we had reporters down at the ground speaking to Gunners fans. Heres some of what they had to say;

"Well I think it's the right time, the club has acted in the right manager they have spoken early and given themselves time to bring a new manager in while he can still give his stamp on the club and act in the manner to what he will want in the transfer market." - Michael, 59 - Long Serving Gunner, Via Facebook

"I'm not sure, I really thought this could have been Wengers year to break the trophy duck and i'm quite saddened he couldn't end his career with one final trophy - James - 30, Via Twitter.

"This is the time, Although like most im catious this could send the club in the wrong direction, I'm excited, It could cause a revival at the club and provoke a greater future a brighter era, and with Wenger as a voice and motivator to whoever now takes the helm, Surely it can't go wrong, We Love you Wenger We Do!" - Dan, 23 From Aldershot

Rumours Emerge At The Emirates!

Rumours are echoing around the Emirates that Joe Jynx (Also known as Jynxie), Most well known to fans of Nottingham Forest, Is in line to replace Arsene Wenger in the helm at the Emirates.

Jynxie was known as the 'Greatest England Player that never Was', having been prolific during Forests dizzying highs, scoring 843 goals in just 936 appearances, However, due to an agreement to not field players of Full-Nationality, between Scotland Wales, England and Rep of Ireland, Jynx was never capped by England. Born in Gibraltar, With English Roots through his Grandparents, Jynx was not of nationality of a FIFA recognised Footballing nation, But was however Eligible to play for England. Despite polls, petitions and numerous protests, the English FA, continued to rule it was a breach of an agreements between UK Football Nations, that a player not of Full English nationality should wear a shirt for the Three Lions. With this Hysteria also surrounding the National Future of Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj.

However, Joe Jynx was rumoured to be spottted arriving at the Emirates early this morning and is suspected to be announced as new manager this afternoon but no later tomorrow, as Bookies all over have closed the betting on who may now take the hot seat.

Other suspected Candidates were; Michael Laudrup, Laurent Blanc and Robert Pires.

Shock as Arsenal agree Ozil deal, and Kroenke confirms Jynx rumours.

Arsenal today sanctioned a deal to bring Germany international Mesut Ozil to the club, With no current manager the transfer has come as a shock to some with some report suggesting Ozil was signed as a player to fill Wengers philosophy and style of play, and that could suggest his shadow may hang over any successor to the Arsenal squad. In press conference Stan Kroenke was quizzed on the new signing by the club.

Reporter: With no current manager, Many fans are shocked that a player has been brought into the club, where was the input and what was the motivation behind the signing?

Kroenke: We as a club look to bring the best players to the club regardless of who will manage them, when a players of Mesut's calibre is offered to you and presents himself as someone who will be fully committed to the clubs cause you just cannot say no, we don't believe this signing will be an issue if anything it will be a benefactor to finding a new manager as top managers want top players and Mesut is exactly that.

Reporter: So, how is the search going can you give us any news, What about Joe Jynx? He was spotted entering the Club this morning can you give us any reports on that?

Kroenke: As of now, I can announce the club is in talks with a manager, this manager is Joe Jynx. Although, nothing can yet formally be announced we hope to have finalised the deal, dotted the I's and crossed the T's and will have something to announce tomorrow morning

Reporter: Wow, that's some strong news there?, what was the reasoning behind the choice of Joe?

Kroenke: Despite not having any managerial experience, Jynxie has given us strong evidence in interviews he is the man to take Arsenal forward, He has expressed a strong interest in working under Wenger to take advice and has given us a strong view into his tactical expertise and knoweledge of the Premier League and Champions League. Thankyou, but that will be all the questions we will take today.

Arsenal Finalise Jynx Contract

As expected, Today has marked the arrival of Joe 'Jynxie' Jynx as the new Arsenal manager.

Arsenal released a statement which read;

Arsenal Football Club are delighted to announce the arrival of Joe Jynx as Arsenal mnanager, We have took great consideration in making this decision and have looked through multiple other options but none seemed to be more suitable than this one. Jynxie is a man of great Footballing experience and has demonstrated to us his own tactical expertise throughout the interview process and we think that the philosophies he wishes to implement are great enough and the correct way to lead Arsenal back to the Premier League crown.

Arsenal have stated that no press conference will take place to welcome Jynx to the club with rumours suggesting around the football world that Joe has travelled initially to Spain to begin transfer talks with Real Sociedad over former Arsenal youngster Carlos Vela before travelling to Switzerland for similar talks with FC Basel with commanding centre-back Fabian Schar.

Vela joined Arsenal from Chivas in 2006, before joining Sociedad in 2012 after a season long loan.

Schar has performed in the Champions League proving himself against Chelsea on numerous occasions
Jynxies Thoughts

So here it is, I've made it onto the managerial scene. Wow, what a feeling!. Already I'm jetting off to Spain to make hopefully negotiate my first signing, it's been leaked to the press somehow that I could be off to Switzerland not long after, Schar is someone who interests me. However, I'm not just in Spain for Vela. Marc Batra the young lad from Barca is someone who has really caught my eye. I want some strong back-up and interest in Per is becoming ever more present I don't want to let him go but it may not be so easy. I'm aware Batra is in his last year of his contract and I'm going to try and utilise that in order to capture his signature, who knows? maybe if he becomes unsettled enough I could capture him in January for free! But for now to Sociedad, Vela's coming home!. Giroud needs some pushing for his place and I think Vela is just the tonic to make him fight for his place. As for midfield re-enforcements for now I think I'm okay, I'm not 100% on Podolski out wide and with some interest from Monaco I may let him go. We will have to see.

3 in 4 out for Arsenal

Joe Jynx arrived back in North London today and told us he had been away 'completing transfer business', and within 3-hours of his arrival we recieved news that Both Martin Montoya and Marc Batra had arrived for a combined 13.25 million pounds and that Arsenal had triggered a clause in Carlos Vela's contract allowing them to buy him back for just 4 million euros (3.4 million pounds) and is set to complete a medical in a London hospital today and complete the deal tomorrow.

Lukas Podolski is the biggest name of 4 departures from North London leaving Arsenal for a sum of 8 million pounds to join up with the Monaco revolution in Ligue 1. Whilst both Yaya Sanogo and Ryo Miyachi completed their season long loan moves to Girondins Bordeaux and Bayer Leverkusen respectively and Arsenal youth product Emmanuel Frimpong left for Hull in a deal believed to be worth 1.8 million pounds.

Jamie Redknapp was here in the Sky Sports Studio talking about Jynx's

"It's very clever on Joe's part if you look at the areas hes bolstered, Vela providing a push to Giroud, Batra an excellent young prospect who's already at the abilty to perform if required and will very easily take the reins from, Per, Laurent or Thomas at centre-back and Montoya, he's looking at Sagna and thinking 'he's in the last year of his contract and he's aging' now Sagna will still be very useful for the next couple of years and with Montoya to come in and learn from him over the next years he's going to be a fantastic young full-back for Arsenal for years to come. However, I think the biggest touch of class is on Wengers part he must have pushed for that clause in Vela's contract and he knew full well when he was letting him go that Vela would be returning and that for me is a wonderful piece of business".

Jynx left the fans a message by telling us "You can expect a few more transfers, we're looking at a couple of prospects but as of yet nothing is concrete".

Speculation has been building around PSG engine Blaise Matuidi with Wenger apparently travelling to hold talks with PSG and the Frenchman about his future, With Matuidis contract expiring in the summer Arsenal will know full well they could get him at a cut-down price. There is also small paper talk of interest in Juventus wideman Kwadwo Asamoah and when quizzed of interest Joe Jynx said "He's on a list, but that doesn't mean anything their are at least 30+ players on that list and currently it's just a narrowing down process to decide the perfect candidate for what we are looking for".

With this clear signal of intent it looks like exciting times ahead for The Gunners.
Jynxies Thoughts

They're like f**king roaches!, They must have flies on every wall of every clubs scouting office and boardroom!. How the hell did they hear about Blaise and Kwadwo. It must be Wenger he needs to learn to keep his French f**king tongue from wagging with his 'umm'ing and 'arr'ing. Nevertheless, it's settled we have some bright young talent in defense now, and we have rid of some deadwood. Overall it's been pretty productive. Just let's hope that prick doesn't scare off Matuidi. I would of gone myself but this is the time I need to sit down in my office and evaluate the squad. Steve has sent me a report of the squad with Star ratings including some of our transfer prospects I need to take a look and think about what this club really needs.

Lukasz Fabianski -


Bacary Sagna -

Per Mertesacker -
Laurent Koscielny -

Right, looking at it, I'm not too worried. I think if we can bring in Kwadwo and Blaise then our dealings will be done. I'm looking to promote Chuba Akpom - and Serge Gnabry - as I see both of them as lads with Huge potential!

Arsenal Finalise Duo Signings

Great news for Arsenal today as Joe Jynx declared 'Business Done!' in a Redknapp-esque interview upon his arrival at the club training ground, As Arsenal completed the 4-million pound signing of Blaise Matuidi and the 17-million pound signing of Kwadwo Asamoah.

'It's great news for the club, Matuidi can provide that engine and a defensive mentality to out midfield that only really is provided by Flamini at the moment. Whilst Kwadwo was a player I had suggested to the club before even becoming manager. I was asked in interviews about the calibre of players I'd look to be signing and how they would suit both mine and the clubs philosophies and we both agreed it was right to bring him to the club.'

It wasn't all great news for Arsenal though as Kieran Gibbs was ruled out for 2 months in training after a collision with commanding centre-back Per Mertesacker. Jynx told us afterwards that he believed the club could cope thanks to Kwadwo's arrival.

'Kwadwo brings a lot of versatility into the squad he his able to play as central midfielder and a full back if necessary and this is good news if the injuries to Kieran are as bad as they currently suggest.'

Kwadwo Asamoah complete his singing to the club as a winner of the Supercopa Italiana at Juventus
