Emery: My future is today and tomorrow

40

With pressure mounting on him, Unai Emery wasn’t prepared to talk in great detail about his Arsenal future, saying his focus was on preparing his team for tomorrow night’s Europa League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.

This week the names of potential replacements have been doing the rounds as the Gunners dismal form continues, but while the Spaniard admitted there were some ‘doubters’, he wouldn’t be drawn on any discussions he might have had with the club about what’s going to happen.

“My future is today and tomorrow,” he said.

“My job is to prepare for the match tomorrow and only look at the match tomorrow, to show the best performance for the team.

“We are playing at home with our supporters so we want to transmit our energy, our gameplan and everything we work on here at the training ground.

“Those are my only thoughts.”

Emery was also asked if this was the most difficult moment of his coaching career which has seen him win the Europa League three times as well as the title in France with PSG.

“As a coach, each moment in my career is difficult,” he continued.

“It’s a very good job, but it’s very hard. When you are winning, you feel the support from everybody, but when you’re not winning like in the last matches, you have some doubters.

“In my career I had successful moments and also in those successful moments, with a small moment, not being well like being consistent every time.

“In those moments I need to be focused for my work and focused with the players.

“I know some doubt is coming about the results but my objective is to change that and come back with the performance and connect with the supporters.”

Would love him to go on a winning streak, winning every game of the season from here on.

Would be a great story, and a lesson in patience and humility for all…..

Really, people wouldn’t like this? It’d be amazing. Obviously it’s massively unlikely but, jeez, sometimes I think some of you are more interested in managerial change than success. Don’t get me wrong I think he should go.

I’d definitely like this. I am very unsure if he is the right coach for us, but if he turned things around and started a 40 game winning streak tomorrow, securing us 3rd place and the europa league trophy in the process, I’d definitely support him while doing that. Fact is that he is still here and if he starts to continually deliver positive results, then he should remain. Why not? I have nothing against Emery the person, but against Emery the loser. (and yes, a home draw vs palace or soton is basically like a loss, there is no way to sell this as some kind of success)

It’s not people don’t like this or can get behind this. We just know he isn’t capable of a manager to do this.

Plus rich is so invested into defending emery that he Is hoping for a miracle with emery as the manager of arsenal

Sounds resigned to the end being near, so maybe the board really are working on a new manager. Time is of the essence. But you know the old saying, “Wal Mart wasn’t built in a day.”

Emery seems like a good man who’s really passionate and hard working. No manager is succesfull everywhere and any human will have their ups and downs.

I want us, and hope we will, to be respectfull and thank him for the effort. We are Arsenal and we are class. We shouldn’t be hounding players or managers.

I know Emery will leave us soon but I wish him well and thanks him for the effort he clearly puts in.

He’s played the game respectfully, I do feel a little bit sorry for him as he is way out of his depth here and unfortunately for him we are a still a big premiership club with big demands. I kinda lay the blame here are the recruiters and dare i even mention his name Ivan G was involved…

Anyway Goodbye mr good ebening, here’s 4 million pounds and sorry it didn’t work out…

Next?

I fully agree and I’ve never booed any player or anyone concerned with Arsenal.

However, I understand fans frustration who have been sold by everyone running the club that we are at a min a top 4 club and have title winning ambitions in the near future.

Without the #WeCareDoYou campaign, there seems to be hardly any communication (other than dismissing the disquiet as noise). Hence, in my two cents the owners and management seem disinterested, unless supporters become vocal.

I miss Arsene and the 20 yrs of footballistic art he entertained us with (for most parts) but it seemed like fans displeasure played a big part in moving him on.

Even now the replacement of Emery is about a month late. The board could have good reasons but even a couple of wins in that period of delay would have kept our top 4 Hope’s for this reason realistic. The repercussions if we miss out on CL qualifications would be longer than 1 season, especially with our self sustaining finance model.

For sure…he really is under the cosh now.

He has the next two game to turn things around.

Its do or die.

BUT the best outcome for us is if he turns things around and keeps pushing till summer.

BC all other options are likely not available or carry equal risk or more.

1) Allegro or Ponch likely will think twice about coming to Arsenal. They would be better advised with their reputation hot at the moment to await things at Bayern and Barca over next 4 or 5 months. Coming to a struggling team outside the CL with poor assets and a rubbish crowd could sully their reps.

2) Nuno Espirot Santos looks like the sort of manager that needs to surround himself with comforts. Without Portugese cohort he has managed to assemble as core at Wolves, he may struggle.

3) Arteta will bring you the same sort of possession based build from the back slowly football without the benfit of the more technically gifted City squad an adverse to our better assets. Viera is a long shot and not well proven. Basing appointment of manager on old boy ties may bring temporary solution (say Lampard or Ole first 10 matches) but equally turn out Ole now.

4) Llungberg prob our best bet IMO to hold for 6 month with low expectations will we find a better solution in the summer instead of rushing headlong, committing to less than ideal candidate which as much as he might improve us, could also keep us stagnant on position or worse. I said this when fans were agitating for Wenger out.

be careful for what you wish for…as much as it can get better it could also get worse. But fans could only see upside with Wenger gone and in their simplistic opinion then (as is now) …anyone will do. can only be better was their facile mantra.

and here we are.

Could this be a scheduled visit, or has he come to gauge the feelings of the support for himself?

Emery should be shown respect. I feel he will lose his job but he has tried his best and deserves respect. He actually started last season well and we beat some of the top sides that we had not beaten for years under Wenger.

At the end of the day results will dictate his fate but I get the impresion that there are certain players who are troublesome. Players have so much power these days. On the wages they are on they should be much more professional.

I just hope we build a Club around players who want to give no less than 100 per cent to Arsenal and give young homegrown players their chance.

Unfortunately this all nedds patience and unfortunately so many so called supporters do not posses it.

Beat what top sides that we haven’t beaten in years?during the beginning? Great win over spurs besides that we Either lost or had draws against the top sides.

Emery stinks as a manager for a big club. He belongs at a mid table at best. Where he can be a “tactical” genius where he game plans against other teams at his level. He earned his opportunity with a big club like PSG and ultimately failed. What did he do that was impressive there that he got the job here at arsenal?

It’s not the players. They have always been like this or at least in The last 10-20 years. He doesn’t have the ability to be successful manager at a big club.
