Great news, just what did he do? From the outside looked like plenty of mistakes with contracts and signings
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

He never filled Ashworths shoes and stood by while the club nosedived. Good riddance.

Jenkins is a significant part of the old guard, surely?

He is indeed, but he is in to sort the present mess out. I don't see him there long term, do you?
MAGA!

Don’t really understand why there is so much relief that Garlick has gone myself, seems like he comes in for a lot of unfair stick. Apart from the 12 months or so he was in Sporting and Techincal director role (which he shouldn’t have been given really) he was essentially working in an administrative role and by all accounts he was very good at it. Once Burton arrived and subsequently Hammond I don’t think Garlick was in any kind of decision making position, certainly not to the extent of others. The fact he’s been poached for this role with a Premier League shows how highly regarded he is.

Seemed like a decent enough guy too and someone who would have been good to have around whilst we go through such drastic changes. Not sure how keen I am to see a board made up of Jenkins, a soon to be Chairman who may not be well versed in how to run a football club and a temporary technical consultant. Not surprised Jenkins was trying to convince him to stay.

Everything I've read since Jenkins returned suggests he's here on more on a permanent than a temporary basis.

I think we can put the pitch forks and torches away everyone has been chased out of the club apart from the owners and they aren't going anywhere.

My impression at the outset was that Jenkins was a temporary appointment to steady the ship while the mess was sorted out but I think I was mistaken. Rightly or wrongly he seems to be in the driving seat and at least he has cleared the decks.

Garlick was plainly the wrong person for the DoF job or rather in combination with McDonagh and Clarke he was deadly, however he hasn't been involved in the direct footballing decisions since. There are some huge blunders on signings and the contracts we have given players yet I suspect they were largely driven by Pulis/Hammond and sanctioned by Williams and Goodman of late, otherwise Garlick would not have survived the initial purge.

I wish him all the best think he has done a good job perhaps the director of football role didn’t suit him but his strengths as an administrator cannot be ignored .

More so he is part of the Albion fabric along with the like of Moore , Brunt, Dawson , Foster.

I wish him well .

Tempted to check out Arsenal Fan TV to see how they rate the job he's doing so far. But then again I probably won't as no one's ever good enough for them, yet that in itself could prove chuckletastic. Decisions decions. And I'm bored.

I'm no fan of Arsenal. For a once allegedly classy club they've been fairly unclassy for a while, no better exampled than their response to Covid and subsequent transfer splurge.

As for their supporters celebrating like they'd won the Champions League after beating the yoof side........ they came across as prime Vilers. I can only wish them the very worst.

Arsenal used to be my '2nd team' i guess you oculd say as a kid but i agree that their behaviour has been disgusting over the last seasons.

I too find Arsenal fans have this very 'superior' attitude which goes beyond how most club fans behave (with obvious exceptions like Man U and Liverpool fans).
Back in the 1970's under George Graham with Tony Adams as captain, they used to be very boring to watch and were even proud of their song 1-0 to the Arsenal. Adams said when he was Wycombe manager 1-0 was his favourite score (puke!). Then Wenger arrived and they got Bergkamp and suddenly they played the best football anywhere.

But for all their great football, they have never won the Champions League, outside England only the Cup Winners Cup and what used to be called the Inter City Fairs Cup.
There are frequent rumours of plundering Ajax, bringing Bergkamp back and most recently replacing Garlick with Overmars as Director of Football, which I sincerely hope Ajax resist. 

It would indeed be fun to watch the fallout if they got relegated this year.

Appointed Managing Director at Arsenal

https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/former-west-brom-director-lands-28510783

Former West Bromwich Albion director Richard Garlick has been named as the new managing director of Arsenal. Garlick, 47, has been at the Emirates Stadium since spring 2021 and, having previously held the role of director of football operations, he has now been confirmed as the managing director from this coming summer onwards.

Garlick, who replaces outgoing CEO Vinai Venkatesham, spent eight fruitful years at Albion during their time in the Premier League, holding a number of different job titles which ranged from club secretary to sporting director and, latterly, director of football administration.


During Garlick's time on the Albion board, the Baggies consolidated themselves as an established Premier League outfit and he played his role in appointing various managers and signing players during that period. Garlick left in 2018 to become the director of football for the Premier League, before he joined up with Arsenal in 2021.

“Since joining Arsenal in 2021, I’ve had the privilege to be involved with almost every aspect of this incredible club," he said. "I’m excited to take us forward in my new role as we move into the next phase of delivering the vision of our owners, Stan and Josh [Kroenke].

“I’d like to thank the board for the support they’ve given me, and Edu for his support as I pursued this opportunity. I’d also like to thank Vinai for his leadership and contribution to the club over the last 14 years. I look forward to continuing to work with them all as I transition into this new role and drive the club forward.”

Josh Kroenke said of the decision: “Richard is recognised and respected across the industry for his vast experience, and we were delighted when he joined us back in 2021 to take our football strategy to the next level. He has made an enormous impact since joining us, working closely with our Sporting Director, Edu, on the development and implementation of the club’s football strategy.

"He has developed strong relationships right across the club and wider industry. Rich has been key to the progress we’ve made as a club – including recent transfers – and I’m thrilled he will now lead our Executive Team and continue to drive the club forward with passion.”
