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.

Let's give the man a chance his record pre PSG was impressive.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely G62..

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..

21 May 2018 21:50:29
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..

21 May 2018 22:22:34
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..

21 May 2018 22:54:02
Hoe true mate, we've done a lot more than ok in my opinion.

21 May 2018 23:48:45
That Monaco team was special lads. Like Porto in 2004.

22 May 2018 14:46:36
Steve we all have our favorites. I know majority of us wanted allegri. Emery wasn't my choice but will get behind the team and sincerely hope he proves me wrong.
