We can't recruit from the very top and seem willing to gamble on Silva so why not Arteta?

Has there been any mention of Brands bringing his current head coach with him?

I canít think of any players other than pep and although it hurts to say dalglish  who has started management at a big club and been successful from the off

Both inherited solid teams so just carried on. That's were Moyes went wrong as he sacked the back room and put his shite in their place. Tempting to do but he was always on a hiding following SAF.
Arsenal is a huge job if he gets it. With us he'd have had more time to adapt.

It's definitely the nicest story.  If you could choose whether we'd be successful under Arteta or successful under Silva for example, then obviously Arteta is a far better scenario.  But to put that above actual rational evaluation of who'd be the best candidate is a bit daft.

Of course. I was 1 of the many who voted for unsworth in the original poll. Iím not overly convinced by silva either. Just hope weíve got the right people making this decision and they make an informed clever choice this time

He's probably less experienced than the likes of Giggs and Phil Neville who've both worked under one of the best in Ferguson plus Van Gaal and Moyes but if either of them were linked with the job there would the fume to end all fumes. I'm sure whenever both were mentioned in Premier League managers jobs the general opinion (rightly) was that they should fuck off to the lower leagues and cut their teeth there first, I don't see why it shouldn't be any different with Arteta? Even Gerrard's taken a big drop in quality to learn his trade.

People like Guardiola are still very much the exception rather than the norm but he'd had a stellar playing career as well so you can see people wanting to play for and learn from him, I can't see Arteta, a guy who's limited playing success came fairly late in his career being a big draw. I'm not saying he won't become a good manager, I just don't see a single reason (other than he was a fans favourite) to take such a big risk given our recent management track record.

Yet all the 'safe bets' we can attract are going to get us safely to mid-table. A little gamble with the safety net of Brands in the background is our best hope of getting into the top six at the moment.

There's a difference between a "little gamble" and taking on a complete novice.

If this is the case then leave alone donít want to be dragging on for weeks

Surely if he isnít employed then when they get round to paying him his compensation it will be even more

That rather depends on the alternatives. We could employ plenty of managers that could get us regularly in the top ten but we can't buy our way any higher so have to try and weed out those with potential. If Arteta is highly thought of by those he has worked with and has a growing reputation he will be a gamble worth taking.

Being such a good player for us is a plus, working alongside Guardiola coaching a 100 point PL winning team and them wanting him to stay, as well as a club like Arsenal wanting him to manage after playing for them  is hardly a dewy eyed assessment of Arteta as a potential manager here, more like shortlist material nailed on, or should be.
I still despise Clive Thomas..

We've got plenty to lose, we can't afford another managerial fuck up and end up changing our manager a dozen games in to the season, the chances of which increase massively when you take on a manager with zero experience in the day to day management of a team.
