Both? Fonseca signed a new deal and Emery was always gonna opt for one of the bigger boys, especially ones in London. So haven't missed out on either. Silva is our top pick


Our top picks as in 'supporters' in the poll above of who 'we' would like in charge, not who the board is going to put in charge, bit of a difference.

No way he didn’t know that they restructured their football executive system a few months ago. There was no chance they’d just rip that up for someone with no experience.

They’ve just decided Emery is better.

It's a shame. I hoped Arteta would ruin Arsenal.

And that makes complete sense, because it's overwhelmingly likely that he is better, based on available evidence.

I would like to recast my vote to Arteta.

He will prove to be an excellent manager - so long as he has the main say about team recruitment. He has the right character and ambition for a club like ours. I've no doubt about it.

Why the particular caveat re control over transfers?

Based on what? Without any managerial experience it's impossible to say what he's gonna be like.

Not every good coach makes a good manager, Steve McLaren a case in point for starters...

and I have no doubt we just signed a DOF so we could let a man that has never managed a club before sign the player for us

You see this is a great example for those gunning for Arteta at Everton.

There are a number of us, myself included, who think that if Arteta got the Arsenal job there is a bigger possibility they'd blip and give teams like us a chance of breaking into the top 6. If Emery gets the job, as is now being reported, that is disappointing, not only for us, but also for teams above them, like the shite, as there is a bigger possibility of becoming a top 4 team again.
So why should we go for an Arteta when there are better, proven managers available. Also bear in mind Arsenal are in a better condition, squad wise than us at present.

I would like to recast my vote to the fella we're actually appointing, then I can see it in bold and think yep I wanted him all along.

Emery to Arsenal is a double kick in the nuts.

Arteta would be a ridiculous risk. Based on the fact Guardiola likes him? Honestly it would be crazy. I imagine all managers like their coaches.

On the other hand, Guardiola was appointed with even less experience, so he may know a thing or two about when someone's ready.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

If that was all there is to consider, I would agree with you. For me, it would be crazy to ignore his obvious leadership qualities, recognized at Everton, Arsenal and City. It would be a risk, but one worth taking.

The thought of hiring Silva does not inspire me with confidence, based on his last two appointments.
