Never seen so much cry arsing over getting to a champions league final.

Wonder if they'll rob tickets off their own fans again.

One lad is cryarsing over Twitter cos he's been done over by a fellow red for a grand for tickets, soft get actually gave the money cash in hand, and got given a fake invoice for tickets that had a £140 value, instead of insisting on paying via bank transfer/Paypal because he fell for an obvious red flag of the tout calling people paying by them methods fakes

But thereís no evidence that Arteta is good at spotting players (or not).

Yes DoF and manager need to be on the same page but a manager identifying the players and a DoF just signing the deals means heís a chief exec, not being a DoF.

Yeah - I meant identifying 'the type' of player needed, and then agreeing with the signings - not personally spending time seeking them out.

78 in Argentina was a classic for me watching Luke and Kempas for the hosts, Cruyf for the Dutch and the ever lively Archie Gemmill with one of the best goals Iíve ever seen against Holland, and Of course the Argentinian melody was the best of all theme tunes ever.

Imo if pep says the mans going to be a good manager and he is a good number 2 then frankly itís worth a squirt.

The upside is you get the next pep. The downside is he flops. I donít mind taking a risk tbh. The fact heís an ex player and a cool continental guy probably does make it more attractive to me, youíre a liar if you think it doesnít to you.

Emery...dunno you know. A few people were decidedly unhappy with him at PSG. Did very well at Sevilla like but - donít think another top club would have touched him. Would have been worth a go obviously because heíd be better than koeman et al. But I can deffo still get behind the silva train.

Can't help but feel like the Arteta love is mostly sentimentality, over reason and logic.

Thinking about it a bit more, I wonder if there's something about identity in there as well. With the last few years of ups and mostly downs, a lot of people possibly feel like we've lost a bit of Everton identity and maybe the desire for Arteta has a bit of that in it. Bring back a familiar, popular face again and feel a bit more like Everton.

You are right about the "feel good" factor where Arteta is concerned. We definitely need more of that! - It is not without good reason, however. He commanded respect as a player and as a leader on the pitch and now as a coach. It is only a matter of time before he succeeds as a manager.

He probably should to be fair.

Hope we get a crack at him and put a tasty 50-60m clause in to keep him happy, would be exactly what we need imo.

Have read good things about him. That league seems to be full of boss midfielders. Well up for this one.

That one is easy to answer: Rooney has always been an instinctive player, whereas Arteta was a student of the game since day one.

What makes Arteta a student of the game since day one?

Does that qualify him anyhow? I mean both the Neville brothers are probably what youíd call students of the game too. Neither of those guys are pulling up any trees mangerially speaking.

All-around midfielder, sort of like Dembele from Spurs though not at that level just yet. Would be more of a link-man in midfield, assuming Gueye or Schneiderlin sits deep.

Seems predicated on selling a midfielder, and this may have been a Steve Walsh special anyway. Would be a few million pounds, as he's only got one year left on his contract and Lille are in a bad financial position.
