The fact is, most coaching replacements fail, that is the norm. Tuchel and Rodgers are not the norm in football.tolahs wrote:We overestimated the coaching abilities of Mikel, i rememeber Pep saying several times that Mikel prepared the team tactics Manc beat us with.

Props to Emery - the final is for ManU to lose. Emery like David Moyles at WH is reborn but the funk they left behind them can't be washed away. What Tuchel has done @Chelsea with Lampard's players undermines the scream for 9/10 new players.
You cannot go far in our league & Europe playing high touch ball!!!
It wasn’t working for Leicester with Puel, sacked him and got Rodgers. It wasn’t working for Chelsea with Lampard, sacked him and got Tuchel. It stopped working for Liverpool with Rodgers, sacked him and got Klopp. We overestimate the impact of saving managers.
Our problem at Arsenal which to be fair has been written about in the past by @Stillberto is the regressive nature of our offense. Mikel's style so struggles to stress deep block teams mainly cos of the ponderous build up.
In the case of managers, you have to get the right manager(difficult but not impossible) - Tuchel was let go by PSG yet has totally turned around a Lampard squad. My feeling is that LCFC is Rodger's level - the bigger the club, the bigger the pressure - no dissing of Celtics(I mean EPL).
All that stated, how long does one stay believing in the process when errors keep getting repeated. It won't be the 1st time, Mikel might just be a better asst than a head coach.
