    I don't think a single person has said Arteta isn't a risk? But if "can't be a risk" is a requirement for the job, we won't be appointing a manager. Ever.

    That part is my biggest reservation about Ancelotti. I think we’d be back looking for another new manager in 18 months for one reason or another.

    I don't necessarily want him ahead of Ancelotti.. I have reservations about both to be honest, they're just different reservations.

    How long could you genuinely see Ancelotti being here for though? And we also have no evidence (at least from within the last 2 decades) of his ability to take on a team in our sort of position and build it up.

    Not as my first choice, but over some of the likely alternatives? Absolutely.

    It's not like Ancelotti is without risk to be fair.

    Arteta isn't my first choice, but compared to most of the realistic possibilities he's streets ahead. He's been touted as a coach with huge potential (and a future top level manager) since before he's even qualified for his badges... He nearly got the Arsenal job 18 months ago, and since then...

    Actually we have Gomes, Delph and Gbamin in the midfield (with likely reinforcements in the summer) Unless you're advocating we rule managers in or out on the basis of a short term injury crisis?

    Cool, so nothing. Fair play for admitting it.

    How long have you been in the City staff? Is the pay decent?

    Based on what if you don’t mind me asking? Please don’t say the Chelsea game

    Flawless plan. I know you’ve got this obsession/fetish for selling off anyone over 27 mate, but we’d be lunatics to sell Schneiderlin and Sigurdsson in January while bringing in 1 player (as much as I don’t think those two are the answer long term)

    So we're down to the bare bones in central midfield as it is, and you want to decrease numbers by 1. Makes perfect sense.
