Mark Hughes takes up the Fulham job and is now closer at hand to renew his charges of the "dark arts" that Arsenal practices. Cesc Fabregas should enjoy these encounters a bit more fully and Wenger will be sure to pump Sparky's flesh more vigorously with the flash bulbs going off.
However, more importantly for Arsenal, his managerial appointment could expedite Mark Schwarzer's arrival at Arsenal.
That is because David James wants to move to Craven Cottage but there has been no one at the helm to approve of the transfer. With the arrival of Sparky, it should be a matter of time before Arsenal put in an improved bid for Schwarzer paving the way for his arrival at Arsenal as Fulham compensate with a James switch.
