Kicker: Arsenal about to poach BVB scout-in-chief Sven Mislintat

Post by Hapless_Hans on Wed Nov 15, 2017 7:51 pm

What the hell.

That would be one serious signing.

Bayern tried to get him last summer but he wouldn't come to us. Now kicker claims they have reliable info that talks are 'advanced' for Mslintat to move to Arsenal.

His recent position at BVB was some sort of 'technical director' position, having moved up from chief scout. He's the guy behind all the unbelievable transfer coups and talent discoveries of BVB in recent years, the most spectacular signings must be Lewandowski and Dembele.

I wonder what position he would have at Arsenal.

Also this pretty much excludes Thomas Tuchel from becoming Arsenal manager anytime soon Laughing

Hope it doesn't happen. I would be too jealous. Pearls given to pigs, as we say.

Don't want Tuchel anywhere near arsenal anyways.

Hope Mislintat is a massive upgrade on rowley. Our scouting has been awful in recent years (not all their fault tho).

Might be our head of scouting.

Mislintat is easily the best scout and transfer dealer in the history of the game.
Dembele for 15m €? Because he talked to the mother when Bayern were talking to the agent Dembele left soon after?

Won't help him at Arsenal of course, as none of his genius signings will get a work permit rofl rofl rofl

Wouldn't change anything till we have a manager who isn't an anachronism and a board who actually give a shit.

It's true though, we already had a fantastic chief scout who was known all around the scouting world in Steve Rowley, so I'm not sure this appointment will change anything. Besides Wenger values StatDNA more than any scouts opinion.

I would be much more excited if we got Tuchel instead, you know making actual change.

I don't think he values either.

He doesn't trust anything which could contradict his own stubborn views - he values what the players say about how they feel, instead of all the advanced satellite based data that we burned money on, for example. That's what lead to more injuries, remember?

Wenger aside, what this move might suggest is that Ivan Gazidis is very gradually changing things behind the scenes. Dick Law is gone, Steve Rowley (top scout in his time, maybe not so good recently) is going, a Sporting Director is coming (guy from Barcelona, his name escapes me atm) and now Mislintant possibly as well. Plus Huss Fahmy (legal expert) and Darren Burgess (fitness expert) both arrived during the summer.

At the moment, it doesn't mean much with Wenger around. But that doesn't mean the pieces can't be put into place in the meantime. And look, if Mislintant comes in and finds some excellent players, even Wenger is going to listen.

If Wenger is willing to buy guys based off stats, he's willing to buy guys based on a supposed expert's opinion. :coffee:

I dont think Wenger buys based on stats, he buys based on his feeling and trust. Laughing

Arsenal set to make Michael Zorc their new sporting director as behind-the-scenes shake-up continues
http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/arsenal-set-make-michael-zorc-11544701

lmao now it gets a bit weird.
If there is really something to that, that would be an immense shake up and a fundamental blow to Borussia Dortmund.

Or.. some guy  at the Mirror simpy heard that Arsenal are about to poach a DoF kind of guy from Dortmund (Mislintat), googled who is DoF at Dortmund and now we have a story that is about Zorc lmao.

Meanwhile, SportBild says Mislintat's move to Arsenal is fix, while Der Westen (close to BVB) says it's almost fix, with things like transfer fee (yes) still to be sorted.

ffs

You can tell our next manager is 80% going to be German or from Bundesliga.

So this is your new head of recruitment..

Fun fact: Besides his activity as professional football scout, Mislintat used to be, under the artist alias of 'Jochen Distelmeyer', the lead singer of famous German indie pop band Blumfeld
