So Pep Guiardiola does not even make the list? In the past two seasons he has won more trophies than Arsene has throughout his managerial career at Arsenal… I am in no way arguing that this fact serves to justify Pep topping the list. Mourinho, maybe? He’s won 17 trophies since 2002. Won all there is it be won in the EPL, as well as most major honors in Portugal and Italy.

Nice to see old “Twitchy” Redknapp didn’t make the cut (not even in the top 157 names) however he won the award for the most premiership clubs you can ruin by being an obnoxious wheeler dealer.

Only trophies won matter to the fans………..yu could add ARsenal’s passing to those statistics and it wont mean anything to me as a fan.

Do you know what Coaching is?.

Coaching is taking somebody who knows nothing, into somebody who knows a lot.

Pep Guardiola has won many trophies but has he really done any coaching or did he do it with people who are already in the know.

Wenger has had students and still competed at the highest level and won against teams which had professionals and in that, he has won it by a million miles!.

Yes, and there is no team that wins them every season, ask Barcelona what they won between 1999-00 to 2003-04 which is an equivalent period to 2005-06 to 2005-06 to 2009-10. And mind you, they were facing weaker opposition than Arsenal has been facing in their trophy drought and they had way bigger player that Arsenal can only dream of during that period.

So if you are among the Arsenal fans furious with the drought and you think other teams win every year, you are lost and impatient
