We haven't even tried!

That's how cheap we've become

Surely someone on here must get it?

The reason why we are not going for Arteta is that we're hell bent on hiring Silva

Plus, we have already conceded that we cannot compete with Arsenal

That's how big we are

Your making out like Arteta is some sort of glaringly obvious choice and we've missed a trick when in reality he's the biggest risk of any of the names that have been mentioned. Honestly, if he hadn't played for us people wouldn't be giving it a second though, I don't see why you're so clearly upset by us not going for him.

Going for Arteta IS the cheap option.

Arteta is a gamble for any club, and we're not in a position to be making gambles.

He may become a huge success, however we don't have the squad or the time to roll that dice.

Of course he's the cheap choice. They could have paid millions a year and attracted a top manager to the job but they're interested in a young former player with no experience whatsoever who they'll get on a comparatively low salary. Although it's not even cut and dried that he's going there anyway.

I think people just love a moan tbh, whatever the club does.

Whatever people think about Silva, I would think some encouragement could be taken from the club identifying specific people for DoF and manager, and not wavering from those choices a few months later. It shows a thought process, and not just going with the fashionable choice.

We don't

How do we decide about a not great footballer?

Well you can at least see their body of work. Why arteta over Toure? Why iniesta over Xavi? I assume you know nothing of their eye for a player or in 3 of the 4 even a desire to manage

David Moyes was recommended by Fergie. He then took the Champions to 7th, and was showing Rio Ferdinand videos of Jags defending to give him advice.

I remember reading an article once about why, for the most part, great players were not great managers. For most great players in sport the game came naturally, they could do things others couldn't through instinct and skill. A truly great player is born with the attributes that make them stand out from the rest. If hey go into management they often get frustrated with players who can't do what came naturally to them. They often can't understand why these players can't do things that they found easy. Few then have the ability to nurture and develop those players. Whereas the player who had to put effort in to develop their game and skills often prove to be the better managers as they have had to go and seek advice from others, to work hard at aspects of their game so empathise with those that need the same. It's s bit like when I first started teaching. I would get frustrated when kids who had not had the same access to opportunities to read as I had had could not grasp simple concepts from text that was put in front of them. Something that was to me so easy was something that I had to learn how to develop in others.

I'm not saying Arteta is going to be a flop but after the disaster of the last season's apppointments are we prepared to go for the even bigger risk in him?
