His pressing high up the pitch.
His instance that the ball is played out from the back (rather than punting it up field in a panic).
Possession through passing.
All this makes him a very exciting prospect indeed.
This is the bit that worries me.
He's not exactly alone in this is he? There are young coaches all over europe coaching this style of play it doesn't make him unique.
He's unproven at so many things that are central to this job, from handling 'star' players through to dealing with the media cauldron and constant focus, actually winning trophies not just over achieving in competitions, attracting top notch playing talent and on and on.
He could be fantastic at everything - but then so could a lot of coaches.
If appointed he's the least qualified manager we've had since the club came back to the top division; what's really scary is that all of this is based on just a couple of good years at one club, and just one in the PL. People keep calling it a gamble, without anyone more senior with footballing knowledge its not a gamble its a massive close your eyes and hope punt and its one we don't have to take
