He's been here longer like, if that's what you mean. I'm not really into the 'in this league' argument personally. Almost all the best players and managers in the Prem are foreign, and had no experience 'in this league' before they came here. Steve Bruce and Alan Pardew have loads of experience 'in this league' and both are garbage. Prem experience is wildly overrated. Talent and ability at your role should be the criteria.
Almost all the best players and managers are in the upper echelons, so would likely succeed wherever they are in the world. Often because they're afforded enormous budgets and very good squads. At the moment, we're nowhere near that market.
For every Steve Bruce and Alan Pardew, there's a Pepe Mel, Felix Magathe or Juande Ramos. Talent and ability are obviously the criteria, but when you're languishing at the wrong end of the table, you need someone who knows what it takes to win 'in this league'. I couldn't care less if they've done it in Italy or Spain, they're completely different propositions.
My first choice would be Tuchel, because I feel he's as close as we could get to that top rank. In his absence, I think we need someone proven. With that in mind, I don't think you can champion Marco Silva and then in the same breath call Eddie Howe a flavour of the month, who has played a decent brand of football and kept Bournemouth comfortably in the league for the last 2 or 3 years.
