Really hope Emery is confirmed! It didn't make any sense to be clearing out the back room staff for Arteta. None of us knew what was going on and I think the club used Arteta and Henry as smoke screens to get who they want. It is how we do and should do business. I am 100 per cent behind this appointment should it happen and the only person i can find who is against it is Punani but then mate you called two time possibly three time Champions League winning manager Zidane a " Rookie " . I'm happy 😊 COYG or YAABILY.

Absolutely gutted Arteta is not manager and we appoint a manager who just keeps winning trophies wherever he goes.

Joke of a club.

What are my hopes for next season now. To win the europa league and improve our league form. This guy can do that in spades, he's done it. The next season after that? let's get the next season out the way first and see if he can achieve with arsenal what he has achieved at previous clubs. that's all i'm asking.
He is a serial winner.

We go into next season with no baggage from the past hanging over us.
Xhaka and Mustafi haven't failed under Emery so get a fresh start.
The new back roon boys aren't tarnished by Benzema Higuain failure and mockery
ALL is new, it's a fresh start and we should all be full of excitement for next season more than we have been for years.
Give the new manager the new back room team and the clubs new approach a chance by us all drawing a line under the past because we've been a club dived for years and now it's time to all unite behind a different way forward together.

{Ed025's Note - a fine dare i say churchillian speech there mate..

Cheers mate :-) just think we've got a real chance to enjoy our football again if we all draw a line under the past and give the future and chance.

Let's hope he can weave his magic

From Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe, to Iwobi, Welbeck and Elneny, that may bring him down to reality with a bit of a bump, welcome to our world.

Think its a good appointment though, quite happy.

Sussex, i think ozil auba lacca and miki are good starts for him.

I think he may well be better suited to working with our crop of players than he was with the likes of Neymar and company.

If one of his strengths is coaching and improving players we have plenty of players that could potentially improve a lot.

We probably have 4 or 5 players that have an abundance of natural ability that just need the right style of play to get the absolute best out of them.

There are probably 12 teams in the Premier that we should have quite a big edge over quality wise which is enough to to collect around 60 points and another 14 games to define our season.

Those players who have failed at Arsenal haven't failed under Emery, different voice in the changing room different approach on the training field and different tactics and motivation might see different performances from those who've struggled in the past.

Says the daily star mate who just happen to be bottom of the tabloids accuracy league.
Personally I think the club has let the tabloids and hit seekers do their ownthing while quietly going about its own business all along.
I think the club have played a blinder personally.

Interview process. Emery came out on top. Let's get behind him. He has a proven record. Maybe not totally top level but at 46 has great experience and still what you would call young in management terms.

Punani will get over us not appointing Tuchel. Dodged a bullet there.

Just read online that Emery has has had the same assistant at every club he has been at, Juan 'Bovver Boy' Carlos. He has been described as a lunatic. Always shouting and barking orders.
So the complete opposite to Steve Bould.

What a shocking decision. Did the Arsenal board do their home work on Unai Emery really? He is a really an underwhelming appointment.

This is a man who lost the league in his first season to jardim's monaco despite having a far superior squad. That scream'under achiever' to me.

His PSG team capitulated against real madrid and Barcelona. He is not a big game manager, lacks charisma and is an under achiever. If we wanted to go ligue 1 for a coach, i don't know why we have not considered jardim.

The cruel irony is that the coach tailor made for arsenal and who once was interested in the arsenal job, is on the PSG hot-seat, having replaced the man who is our new coach now.

I really didn't mind arteta as a coach because i am not sure about what we would get, which makes it an exciting prospect. I fear about what we will get with unai emery though because he really under achieved a lot at PSG. Lost the league in his first season to a monaco team despite having a far better squad and never even reached a champions league semi-final with all that money. What is he going to achieve at Arsenal with a tight budget?

That said, i will get behind the team but i don't see unai emery achieving much at arsenal, i fear for the worst.

Im sorry punani, you speak with fork tongue mate. You personally might not want emery andxthat is your choice but don't try and pull the guy down. His achievements are tp be applauded and let's hope he can achieve thesame with us.

i am not pulling the guy down, i am just stating my opinion of him which is not good really .

In the situation we are in, i think we really need a coach who can over-achieve, not one who under-achieved. If unai emery couldn't even reach a champions league semi-final with all that oil money, what is he going to achieve with stan kroenke's few coins?

He had a really expensively assembled squad and they under-achieved a lot in the champions league. Zidane, a rookie coach tactically outclassed him in both legs and he conceded six to barcelona despite having a 4-0 aggregate lead.

I have watched many of his games with PSG especially, i can't say much about his la liga teams as i only watched his sevilla team in the europa league, he was decent with sevilla in the europa but with PSG there was nothing special about him tactically. Infact most of the top managers who faced him, outclassed him tactically. I am not saying he is a bad cocah, he is decent but just know you are not getting a guardiola or an allegri and i think we need a coach more in the mould of a guardiola, a tactical revolutionary.

{Ed025's Note - im afraid thats exactly what you are doing punani, your highlighting the downside of everything he has done but fail to mention the good stuff, if after 20 odd games arsenal are languishing in mid table and the football is dire then by all means moan to your hearts content, but for christs sake give the guy a break and show a bit of loyalty to your club mate..

So punani, your mate pep, dod he get it 100 % right at bayern and what about last season at citeh, what was that shambles pf a goalkeeper he bought, did he win the league in his first season. He had the best team in germany and the best team this season in the prem and possibly europe but did he win the european cup? Just get real and remember its opinion but pep is the greatest coach but boy jrs made some right stinkers. At least get your opinion equal. Has pep won the treble with the best team tjis season?

Sorry but that sounds ridiculous. You do realise that monaco team was picked apart due to the talented players they had. Seriously its not a bad choice. It could be good or it could be bad. But let the guy get his arse groove into his seat before we start slating it.

{Ed025's Note - exactly D16..

We wanted change, we have change. We didn't Want Arteta we didn't get Arteta, we wanted an experienced man we've got an experienced man, I'm not sure what more the club could have done apart from hiring 22 managers plus keep Arsene as well to make everyone happy Ed025 mate.
We are trying something different to what hasn't worked for us for a while now and the club are trying to change our fortune's and we should support the change we all wanted so badly even if we didn't all get 100% what we personally would have ideally wanted.

{Ed025's Note - i happen to rate the guy G62 and in a recent everton poll of who the supporters wanted as the next manager emery came top, damed if you do damed if you dont it seems to me mate..

He's a good chioce in my opinion mate no more risky than anyone else and a lot less risky than many many others we've been linked with.
if people can put their personal feelings about the club to one side they will see the clubs done as absolutely as well as was possible to do.
Personally I am excited about next season already.

{Ed025's Note - think yourselves lucky i say G62, you could have got allardyce...or even worse mourinho mate..

Sad day to see Cazorla be released. One of fav. Arsenal players of recent times and when he was fit made us a much better side overall, miles ahead of Ramsey and Xakha in my view at his best. I Personally would have liked to give him a 1 year extension to see if he could get back to his best after his injury nightmare. Maybe it was a mutual thing though and Caz thought the EPL would be perhaps to quick and physical for him now?

Couldn’t agree more Ryan, my favourite player and really sad to see him go. He wasn’t one of the cosy club and wanted to go out and win.

It was him who got us to play so well against City when he got Coquelin sat next to him in the base of our midfield.

A class above all our midfielders and I hoped he got another 12 months too.

{Ed025's Note - shame really stoner, very good player and always played with a smile on his face which makes a change from most of them mate..

Emery is a very good coach. may take a while to work but when it does oh boy. I still don't get the fascination with Allegri he would have been too defensive and fans would end up complaining like those of manchester united right now.

What you said Joseph is very true. It might take a while to work, so we have to be patient Personally speaking if it was a straight choice between him or Arteta I think the right choice was made.

As much as allegri is a defensive coach, he is a world class coach. One of the few coaches you can depend to get a result with his back against the wall. He is calm under pressure. Unai emery is a decent coach but not a world class coach. He lacks charisma and panics when things go wrong.

In his last season in sevilla, his team never won an away game. He bottled the league in his first season at PSG despite having a far better squad. His team capitulated against Barcelona and real. He is not a big game manager, an under achiever something Arsenal don't need.

He had improved every club he has managed, with the exception of spartak Moscow. He started at the bottom and has worked his way up.
