Daniel Levy

It amazes me that the media and football websites take so long to cotton on to the fact Daniel Levy has a plan.

Simply citing 8 previous managers doesn't look at what the aims and aspirations were, what the managers themselves got up to. Of the last two, one nearly went to jail and one alienated most of the club. In those circumstances you are left with little choice but to relieve them of their duties.

We then had an interim manager while we waited until the summer to appoint another one and David Pleat was another interim manager so we haven't had the number of permanent managers people believe we've had.

After Harry Redkapp the club sought a long term manager, young, upcoming, ready to build a lasting legacy in the way Arsenal have. The production line of talent from the academy and Development Squad was fundamental to that.

The Technical Director deals with buying players and the Head Coach concentrates on coaching, it works abroad and despite people thinking it doesn't work here, most clubs actually operate in that way to one degree or another.

Louis Van Gaal was to take the same task, work with and develop youth. When Manchester United took him we simply interviewed the three remaining candidates and selected the one it was felt could work within our strategy.

Mauricio Pochettino has brought his backroom staff with him with will mean Tony Parks, our goalkeeping coach departing but the club still want to retain Steffen Freund. I speculated that he would take Tim Sherwood's old job, Head of Player Development recently and that is being considered as a possible role at the moment.

Pochettino has a history of youth development so it could be exciting times for the club in that respect.

The strategy Daniel Levy has now is the same one he had prior to AVB, the goals are the same and I am hoping at long last we can instill a winning mentality into the club.
