Because if the manager we appoint has any idea about the style of football that will take the club forward, he will seek those players who will make that happen. A DOF needs to be in agreement with the manager (not the other way around) and do the business and paperwork with the same goals. Arteta commands respect wherever he goes - and not without good reason.

But there’s 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 he’s a chief exec, not being a DoF.

It's not because he played for Everton. I think Viera is a really good option too. We need to find the next Pep, Zidane etc. We need to find the exception. it's going to take trial and error, we need to find the Pocchetino before he is at Spurs for example. otherwise we stuck fighting for 6th in perpetuity

Re Poch, he’d never finished higher than 8th in the league anywhere before he went to Spurs.

That sort of record wouldn’t preclude Silva from doing the same sort of progression.
