Frank was underperforming with the 2nd best squad in the country and 250M worth of new signings.You're hugging the Jose reference but my initial post said "rivals." What about Chelsea? Frank and Mikel were eerily similar in results before his sacking.
Arteta won a cup which buys you time, and in his second season he’s in the EL semi which gives him a shout at a CL place, which is his main target.
Your comparisons are off.
