Arsenal supporters are not thinking straight if they believe Jose Mourinho or Massimiliano Allegri are going to want to become the club’s next manager.
This is according to Chris the Gooner, who called talkSPORT on Thursday morning and said: ‘Give Allardyce or Moyes a chance!’
Arsenal have not yet begun their hunt for a new boss with Unai Emery still in a job, but Wednesday’s Europa League draw at Vitoria heaped further pressure on the Spaniard.
The Gunners have won only a single one of their past six matches, and a loss to Leicester on Saturday could leave them NINE points off the top four after 12 games.
Sitting in that position may catalyse the Arsenal board to act and axe Emery, with big-name managers such as the aforementioned Mourinho and Allegri in the frame to replace him.
But Arsenal have no chance of tempting such a prestigious coach to the Emirates, according to Chris – who said the Gunners’ ‘moronic’ fanbase will drive top level managers away.
Speaking to co-host Jamie O’Hara on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Chris began: “I would just like to agree with everything Jamie has been saying, about the club being a poisoned chalice. Who would really want this job?
“I’ve had to stop going to the Arsenal because of the supporters – they are morons, to be fair.
“Who is going to want to take that job and work for those fans, who boo players…
“Where do I start with Arsenal?”
O’Hara, the former Tottenham midfielder, claimed no ‘top manager’ would want the job given Arsenal appear to be moving backwards rather than forwards, and he suggested Steven Gerrard for the role.

“Gerrard?” Chris replied. “Why would he want that? He’s got Liverpool waiting after [Jurgen] Klopp.
“Why would he want to come to Arsenal?”
And then Chris made his huge claim, saying the likes of Sam Allardyce and David Moyes are the coaches at Arsenal’s current level.
“I reckon Allardyce or Moyes, give them a chance. What have we got to lose?”
