Ivan Gazidis

Honestly reckon its about money. Milan probably made an offer he couldn’t refuse. Probably used Arsenal as a stepping stone to prove he could manage as a CEO of a top European club. CV is looking good so time for the next pay day.


#767

Personally I see it as a pretty reasonable and intelligent, if somewhat pragmatic move on his part. He’s obviously reveling in a lot of praise at the moment for the revolution at Arsenal and to be fair to him he seems to have got pretty astute people into the right positions. If this season goes well he’ll be considered one of the main catalysts and driving forces behind the success, and if it goes to shit in typical Arsenal fashion, fuck it, he’ll be in Italy.

His stock isn’t going to be higher so why shouldn’t he cash in, he is a businessman after all.


#768

Yeah, and I’d imagine he feels he’s done his part with the transition being finished and is now with his boys in Milan.

I hope we can get the right CEO to replace him though.
I’d love it to be someone who gets the club but let’s see.

I’m sure the club has a shortlist.


#769

He’s been here 10 years. I couldn’t imagine what could keep me in my current job that long.

#771

Arseblog has really got his finger on the pulse with this one eh


#772

I’m wondering if the entire British press has still heard nothing about this? :joy:


#773

He’s been talking about it on the podcast since the stories first emerged in fairness. He’s just reporting what he’s now heard form his source, a bit like Ornstein would do.


#774

Fify :wink:

Speaking of which I just checked his page for some info and he spoke about Gazidis 4 days ago.

So we’ll see who’s more legit arseblog or The Mole :grin:


#775

Image Big Wenga replacing him :wenger2:


#776

Yea, loads of experience as a CEO


#777

That would be the worst thing that could ever happen


#778

#779

Not even 2mil what a mug


#780

#781

Can’t see Gazidis jumping ship at this point, why not stay to witness the tumultuous changes you instigated play out in a new era. Non story


#782

Bloody knew it had to be a big contract to tempt Gazidis (if reports are true). There’d be no other reason to leave after such a short time from implementing progressive changes at the club.


#783

#784

No great loss if Gazidis leaves.


#785

It’s a job, just leave within the terms of the contract and it’s respectful.
