Unusually for me I find myself sitting very awkwardly on the fence on this one.
I was very pleased when Arry took over as I liked the way he got the best out of players which he had proved he could do for many years. Towards the end I was not sure about his tactics (The Villa game being the best example) and the thought crossed my mind that perhaps he was not tactically astute enough to compete at top 4 level. However, I would have liked to see him stay for at least another year.
AVB however I was not a fan of before so seeing him come in did not fill me with joy. As I have said elsewhere, he seems to think he knows a secret to the way of playing football that no one else does with a smug "wait and see" look on his face.
Part of me says - why wait, get rid of the idiot before he does too much damage but another part says give him a fair crack of the whip.
The one thing I am certain of is that we will not win very many games with one striker, two very wide wingers and two holding midfielders.
