For the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern, the fact they have a tricky EFL Cup quarter-final clash with Southampton later on today has driven many of them to afternoon drinks.
Though the Gunners are competing on all fronts, our north London locals are hopeful of progression this evening, considering the competitive nature of both the Premier League and the Champions League.
Despite a reasonably strong start to the campaign, many of the Emirates faithful propping up the bar remain split on Arsene Wenger, as he enters the final few months on his current deal with the club.
So, reports from the Sun have provided them with some food for thought.
They claim top brass with the club are eyeing RB Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuttl as a potential replacement for Le Prof, should he depart at the end of the season.
Our resident Arsenal fans are delighted to see the club making long-term plans to potentially replace the French tactician, having watched Manchester United struggle since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Hasenhuttl has led the Bundesliga new boys to the top of the league, at the expense of Bayern Munich, despite being a hugely unpopular side in Germany.
