Ironic, that!If Arteta was to manage Newcastle for the next two seasons and he gained successive 7th spot positions, would you then consider him?To conclude: You are all in agreement that Silva will have a more successful managerial career than Arteta
It's not just a case of 'who knows' though. It's about minimising risk in the appointment, and one of the better ways to minimise risk is to appoint someone who has actually done the role (see the difference between Steve Walsh and Marcel Brands as DoFs). It's a completely different gig being part of a team of coaching staff, to being the man that makes 100 decisions per day, where the buck stops. I think it would be ludicrous to appoint Arteta, or any other ex-player, based purely on sentiment and good looks.I'm been broadly pro-Silva for a while, but not completely wedded to the idea, if a better candidate becomes available. But the more I think and read about it, I think Silva is going to be an excellent appointment for us, and could well be the man to take us to the next level. I think he is primed to take a club and mould it, and I'm really pleased it's us giving him that opportunity.
Hahaha genuinely what do we do next year if we wobble again? ...Pulis?
If silva doesn't work out its no big deal.We'll have a Dof in who'll find somebody else who's suited to the squad.Personally I'm willing to write off next season to build some solid foundations.Obviously there's a base level he'll have to achieve but if we find ourselves 10th by Christmas there should be no meltdown.
Reputation they have gained through working with the best team in the league. A reputation that filters down to the press and then to the supporters.People haven't just woken up one morning and thought 'let's try and get Arteta a job'.
Brands is seriously considering bringing Cocu with him, Silva is the favorite but Brands also has Cocu on his list. He has 1 year left on his contract and would consider moving abroad, but Spain is his preferred country.
