Dean Smith is indeed a good british manager, he is the one I rate highest after Graham Potter.No his point doesn’t stand since his point that we need to contextualise the tactical battles Arteta was competing in in league with a “importation of superior foreign managers”. How is that true when last season, when he finished 8th, effectively half the league was managed by *** British managers? So what was his excuse then? Nada.
Further more he compares this with Emery’s 1st season who he posits faced inferior managers when Emery actually managed in a league with MORE “superior foreign managers”, lmao
And it’s laughable that you defend Dean Smith and David Moyes as good British managers yet are implicitly defending his point that someone like Harry Redknapp is *** when Redknapp has won an FA Cup and finished 4th twice, something either of them have achieved. So where is the logical consistency in assessing which British managers are bums and which aren’t? It’s nowhere to be found in this moronic point.
It’s clear you haven’t understood the point being made so I have no idea why you interjected since you’ve just made yourself look like a mug.
Pointless arguing with you. You are just an agenda merchant. You are invested in the Em*ry / Arteta thing when I am not even making that argument, lol, and confirmation biasing your way into the argument that defends you against this perceived argument that I'm not even making.
Yes, the league is better than it was 3 years ago, and 2 years ago. Is it an excuse for Arteta? Absolutely not. He has to get top 6 with this squad at a minimum.
The Em*ry argument is a totally different one and I've laid out my reasons for that. You are just obsessed there and pushing a massive agenda because the last time we had that argument you made pages worth of posts and still managed to fail to even mention or recognise one of the most important points in the whole discussion (where Em*ry picked the club up in terms of result and performance level compared to the rest of the league; where Arteta picked the club up in terms of results and performance level compared to the rest of the league).
And it’s laughable that you defend Dean Smith and David Moyes as good British managers yet are implicitly defending his point that someone like Harry Redknapp is *** when Redknapp has won an FA Cup and finished 4th twice
You do realise this works directly in favour of my point, lol?
That a manager like Redknapp could finish 4th twice is a perfect example of how the league has evolved significantly.
