Has anyone considered the possibility that Levy might want to see further evidence of Ange's ability to get the best out of the squad. That's not to say he won't back Ange, but will he go the whole hog. After our start ( 26 pts in 10 games), where we finished was a big disappointment. Ange should have solved the problems we had with conceding at set pieces, and it took him too long to resolve the absence of Udogie. Three more points and we would be in the CL. Broadly speaking he received solid support. In stark contrast Ten Hag was abused constantly but he has won two honours, and stood his ground. The first time Ange came under pressure, he virtually blew a gasket.

We have great youngsters coming through, how many were given a run. Forty points from our last 28 games might be giving Levy a reason to watch how things progress. European football will present a whole new challenge in terms of squad rotation. bring in a good striker and a CM who has the quality of Waynama or Dembele and things should improve. We don't need six players, we need a couple in key positions. How far will Levy go in backing Ange?

The only thing that Levy has no problem buying is time. He’ll do the bare minimum just to stay in control and keep milking that cash cow.

I don't think his faith in the head coach will make any difference to how much we spend.

He's put a transfer committee in place and there's a general budget that they are given. I don't think it goes any further than that.

Agreed.

There will be a budget with which certain priority targets will be brought in. The exact number of eventual incomings will be dictated by those Ange is willing to part with as they don’t fit his model and us actually managing to shift them.

There will be some restrictions this summer & that will never change.
Unfortunately this one of the reasons why, we won’t ever consistently challenge.
Not much we can do about it, except wait for the day he finally leaves.

nothing to say whoever eventually takes over will necessarily be different, or better.

we've spent money, we've made really bad signings that were expensive.

Under our new recruitment system, we’ve made good signings the past year.
I have no doubt with larger finances, we’d get even better players, to help us push on.

The recruitment side has been all over the place under ENIC.

Sometimes it’s been good, sometimes terrible, sometimes inconsistent with poor planning.

Things are currently good and hopefully everything continues for the foreseeable. But football isn’t easy to guarantee the long term.

At some point Levy will need to hire someone’s replacement. I don’t trust his judgment in this area to get it right.

Just have to enjoy the moment and hope it continues.

But it’s catch 22…. Don’t give him the tools to succeed and as we’ve seen time and again the manager will fail, then we are back to square 1 with another manager and another system with levy not trusting them yeh

We've already challenged for honours, even got to a UCL final, whilst he's here.

And on the road to that final we sold Dembele mid season without replacing him.

No serious club would do such a thing whilst still in Europe.

We know this because it's all we hear whenever we try and buy players from CL teams in January.

To be fair, it was more that we did Dembele a favour and let him leave for a final pay day because he couldn't play at the top level anymore due to his injuries.

He wasn't a main player with us by that stage because his body couldn't cope with the pace of the game.

Every big club makes bad signings that were expensive. Despite being one of the most profitable clubs in the world, we seem to be the only ones who get hamstrung by a few bad deals. Arsenal spent big money on Pepe, Aubameyang and Lacazette and then gave them away for free. They spent £50m on Gabriel Jesus and are now looking at an expensive new striker to replace him.
