Similar story to Ole, as soon as he came in people were like “no tactics just vibes”, and no tactics is what killed him. Soon as Tets came we’ve been saying he’s too conservative. No creativity is what will kill him.
Can't really think of any side who's had success at the top end of the table playing quite as conservatively as we do under Arteta. I know park the bus Mourinho became a thing but in his early years in England, Chelsea used to kill teams off in the first half.
The question is whether the board are happy with us trying to become "best of the rest" if you like or do they actually want us to push on and try and compete with the top sides eventually. As I said it will get you points against the so called lesser sides but it will be very difficult to get much off the top teams in the league.
