Come Back To What You Know

像兰帕德和切尔西,或Rogerio Ceni and São Paulo,阿尔特塔和阿森纳似乎只是需要被划伤的共同管理痒处之一。就像一个沉默寡言的学生看着他的室友摄取摇头丸的恶人量,好奇心是太强大,阿森纳和阿尔特塔有压倒性的共同的愿望,吮吸它,看看。

The Spaniard is seldom linked with other jobs- other than a tangential link to the Everton position on account of his history there as a player. He has interviewed for the Arsenal position twice in 18 months now yet, as far as we know, hasn’t indulged the top brass of any other clubs with midnight liaisons at his Manchester abode.

I have spoken a little about Arsenal’s attraction to阿特塔前的神秘盒子。其他候选人的领域是不是巨大的鼓舞和有一个接受的是一个真正鼓舞人心的任命可能需要来自左场。阿尔特塔最大的吸引力可能只是一个事实,即他已经没有机会做任何事情得罪我们呢。

Knowledge is, at once, the great blessing and curse of the modern football fan. We know everything about everyone. New signings lose their ‘fresh out of the box’ sheen very quickly because by the time they have made their debut, we have an extensive dossier on their strengths and, most tellingly, their weaknesses. This goes for managers too and likely explains why there is no overwhelming favourite for the job among the Arsenal faithful.

Ancelotti? We have already seen him manage AC Milan, PSG, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Bayern Munich. We know how he operates, how he is an adhesive agent for a gifted squad under-delivering on its obvious talent. We know he relies on building strong, friendly relationships with his players and that he tries to foster a relaxed environment.

Allegri? We already know he is not a great communicator, has a loose grasp of English, how he left AC Milan in 11th place and for all of his success at Juventus- it’s Juventus! (I am not saying these are my opinions per se, I am just paraphrasing the general consensus). By the time Unai Emery coached his first Arsenal game, we knew that he was going to use the 4231 formation he trusted at Sevilla, Valencia and PSG.

That feeling of familiarity abbreviates a manager’s honeymoon period, we know their weaknesses and we immediately scour for them, peeling back the layers of games for evidence of our deeply held suspicions. Arteta doesn’t come entirely lacking this baggage- there will, I think, be an expectation that he will produce a working facsimile of Pep-ball. Much of his reputation- based entirely on theory at this stage- is grounded in his association with Guardiola.

我不认为任何人is expecting David Moyes to be his managerial inspiration. However, at this stage, we have no reasonable measure of Arteta’s strengths but, more importantly, we are not pre-fatigued by his weaknesses. Does he have a flaw in dealing with pressure? Is he the arm around the shoulder sort or a jackboot up the anus kind of guy?

什么是他的口头蜱?难道他开发防空洞了神经性抽搐之以鱼围绕在他的内衣和吸气他的手,乔吉勒夫风格的香味哪支部队?没人知道。截至目前,阿森纳在混乱的这种状态,他们的胳膊和腿也几乎脱落,所以他们可能会以及委托的手术,希望他的下一个Dougie Howser新秀。

因为如果阿尔特塔去别的地方,确实变成是在等待欧洲足球的管理天才,他会立刻超越阿森纳的范围。安德鲁在其博客上列出周二, the Gunners perilous state gives Arteta a weird sense of power. It’s probably why he was able to enact the ultimate pre-recruitment power move of having Arsenal’s executive class commute from North London to Manchester on Sunday evening for their not-so-secret rendez-vous.

由于佩普渗透已经清楚地磨去阿特塔,我们假设,他将是一个盛大的理论家,他可以给阿森纳队已经这么拼命缺少了这么多年的身份。我们假设米克尔将是一个“项目经理”,他会狠狠地从松弛队修剪脂肪,开凿成自己彬彬有礼,一尘不染做头发图像。

The mixture of Arsenal’s train-wrecked season and the stupefying curiosity as to whether the theory of Arteta the coach matches the reality will buy him a little time. Not much, but the rest of the season, one would imagine. Arsenal are in ‘blow it up and start again’ territory. Yet Arteta and Arsenal has been a mutual courting.

这是真的,米克尔拒绝了机会加入枪手教练在他的退休人员在2016年,然而,他似乎只有着实让眼睛阿森纳的最高职位。这可能是因为他在阿森纳5年对他产生了深远的影响,他珍视俱乐部的“价值观” - 无论是什么。

在阿尔特塔的时间在俱乐部,阿森纳的价值观是非常温格的价值观。如果情况确实如此,他很可能变成是一样多的温格助手作为Peplicant作为主教练。阿森纳目前的情况可能是一个经理开始寻找他的职业生涯的头町特别吸引人,但他在2018年想要的工作了。他想用它稍微延缓衰老,非常昂贵,并且很不平衡的阵容拿有毒的圣杯温格的继任者在一起。

似乎有一些具体的画阿森纳他。这当然是对他的部分大胆的举动。很少有管理者流行的樱桃演出这个大。声誉是一个长期的染色,当一个教练混乱了推广成一个大的工作,会有很多的“我告诉你,”商家设下埋伏应该阿尔特塔不能证明是管理第二次来。只要问加里·内维尔。

Despite being bumped for the job at the 11th hour last summer, Arteta is seemingly unbowed in his desire to lead the club. It could have been an amicable rejection, of course. Arsenal might even have left the door ajar and promised to revisit his candidacy in the future and that might explain why he hasn’t publicly courted other roles. Whatever the truth, Arsenal and Arteta has a strong ‘Rachel and Ross’ vibe. It seemed inevitable that, sooner or later, he would come back.
