Just fine thanks.Arteta so far has spent £430mil since he arrived (I hope I added it up right). Ten Hag has spent half of that already in one transfer window with £229 spent over the summer. What immediate impact or progress do you expect to see from Ten Hag? If he only wins the Carabao Cup (without seriously challenging for the title) after spending so much, how would you assess him?
Sure he’s not had the time yet, but he’s definitely been backed financially much more than Arteta was in his first 6 months. Arteta won the FA Cup and finished 8th his first season (but he came mid way through 19/20 season) and spent £103mil in his first proper transfer window. If we adjust the league table in 19/20 for only Arteta’s time, we’d be 6th.
Ten Hag has spent more than double that, will probably finish 3rd and win Carabao Cup, maybe EL. If United with the EL then definitely Ten Hag has made the bigger immediate impact, but he’s also spent double what Arteta did at the same stage.
He’s already bagged the first available trophy and still competing in 3 further competitions just to mention a few of the positives.
Man inherited a shit show and mentally insecure squad which was then followed by further shit shows with Ronaldo, benching the club captain, greenwood and the club being put up for sale.
We literally played without a striker till the world cup and we still are now.
Do you think any United fan thought we’d be challenging for the title because he spent £229 million ?
