Happy new year everyone! So now it’s the first of the year I would like to say to ed02 can you please tell me who ., 😂 haha just kidding all the best Ed’s and posters ✌️.

{Ed001's Note - Emery? Oh sorry I thought you were asking the first manager to get sacked in 2019.... ;-)

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed01, you know if this actually happens, it's going to be very spooky that you said this.

{Ed001's Note - not so sure it is all that spooky as he was not everyone's choice within the club and there is a lot of disappointment with the way he is handling the injuries and the lack of defensive improvement he has brought.}

Woe it didn't take Dick long to go from hero to zero did it :-) .
3 weeks ago he was the best thing since sliced bread now there are questions about his future?
The honeymoon is well and truly over for Dick that's for sure:-)

Happy New Year Sanogo, Emery has never been the best thing since sliced bread for me, not a lot of either read or heard about him fills me with any great confidence.

Seeing how appalling we remain defensively I find incredulous.

I appreciate reading he was brought in as he “would tow the party line” may be fake news but somehow I don’t think so.

Lol give the bloody bloke a chance.

Yeh I got to say that seems extremely harsh if they are judging him that harshly already, the defence has been terrible, but he was hardly allowed much to change it, got to give him at least a few windows. You think they might be getting trigger happy already Ed?

{Ed001's Note - personally I do not think it is being trigger happy, his record and reputation should have preceded him and the club looked elsewhere. He has consistently had problems dealing with egos and Arsenal have egos at the club. He can't deal with Ozil and Ramsey, I just do not see what he has done that is so good? Even on your unbeaten run there was not one game that you could look at and say: "that was an excellent, well-deserved, dominant win". No matter who you faced you always looked on the verge of a collapse and it was only a matter of time before it all folded.}

5 months no trophies plus we've never once qualified for the champions league on his watch! How long does does the man want? :-)

Apart from the Spuds win ED, We were very good that day.

{Ed001's Note - yes but that is one game when you can put aside form etc as they are regularly a blip. Derby matches are ones you can pretty much leave to the fans to get the players playing well in. It shows to me that the team is capable of more than Emery has got out of them on a regular basis. Good point though.}

Apart from Spurs Ed that is true mate, Dick himself said after the Southampton defeat " we could have lost any of our games so far"
He will get and deserves 2 full seasons minimum before we can sensibly make a fair assessment of his capabilities at Arsenal.
The defence is a huge problem I'm disappointed not to see any progress with and if it's no better next August Dicks second season is going to be an extremely tough one.
He's taken on a huge rebuilding job after inheriting a very poor squad with an extremely poor mentality for work and effort, he needs to show progress but it won't be a Ranieri at Leicester fairytale quick fix that's for sure.

{Ed001's Note - as I said to Banbury, does that not prove he is not getting the most out of the team in the rest of games?}

01 Jan 2019 14:01:21
Banbury mate I just see lesser teams being way better than us defensively, we now have a pretty good defensive midfielder but like Ed01 said, even prior to injuries we were still on the edge of implosion and we’ve had yet another “Wenger” thumping from one of the big boys.

Why can’t we get basic defending sorted, 5-1 is Liverpool’s biggest win in the league this season and it’s not Huddersfield, not Fulham and not Burnley, it’s us.

I’m just not convinced at all mate. Sorry and it’s just my opinion and I appreciate that he’s only had one window.

01 Jan 2019 14:36:03
Yes Ed mate it does, the fact that we are so poor first half STILL says something as does our non progress defensively.
I still back him 100% because 5 months is nothing when trying to put right a decade of defensive ildispaline and neglect not to mention the poor mentality that has been plain to see for years too.
Dick may or may not be the man to get us back on track and into contention again but he is certainly a stepping stone away from the past and towards the future no matter if it's him or someone else that delivers that future.

{Ed001's Note - good point.}
