Honestly, Arteta is proof that nobody at the club knows anything about football. If you want to go the youth route which is what they're trying to sell then you go for a manager with a track record of being able to develop youth. You put youth with an established manager so that the only growing pains are on the players' end. Instead, we have experienced players who have never been leaders being asked to lead kids who end up leading them and a manager who may well have a personality disorder drowning in the job while the kids try to rescue him and develop at the same time. It's doomed to fail. Even if the kids are improving technically and individually, they are stagnating tactically because his tactics are infantile and don't help them to develop their positional sense in any way.
Can't believe he isn't asking for 7 new players that fit his system
