Saw the poll down the page of emery in or out, I could go either way, I'm unconvinced, but willing to give him a bit of time, but I would equally be excited if someone else was to come in, because it doesn't seem like it's working out. However who do people that would sack him now expect us to replace him with? We were hardly blessed with the pick of the bunch, before we appointed him, nagelsmann and Allegri being the standouts and neither were probably even interested and nagelsmanns now not an option, probably never was and Allegri would need his head checking if he left juve for us in our respective states, unless we offered him a fortune, which is unlikely. Arteta seemed like the most likely option and most people baulked at the thought, unknown quantity could work out and catch everyone by surprise, but more likely he would be totally out of his depth like Henry at monaco. The candidate list will hardly of improved if emery isn't given much time especially with them seeing the peanuts he's been handed to try and sort the team out.

I’m not going to comment on Emery as I’ve already done that. When Wenger left I kind of hoped Allegri was the guy they’d go for.

However we have an owner with no interest in football and 100% no interest in us challenging for the big owners.

Thus with the acquisition of Mislintat I would have liked a young progressive manager to go with him. We now have neither.

I really don’t see us ever challenging again under Kroenke, if he has no appetite than the club has none.

Having patiently waited for the Stadium pay off I expected big things. Now I honestly expect absolutely nothing. We’re not even good to watch now.

Personally I think he has to have the summer window but then from August it's show us you can improve us or make way for the next contestant to have a go.

I’m not sure that we can pass judgement on Emery yet. All the signings last summer were made before he was appointed and in January he was told he can only loan players. You can expect him to unpick an old regime without being backed to implement his style with his type of players. Also 2 of the 3 senior people behind him when he was appointed have since left the club. It’s hardly a solid foundation for him to start on. I wouldn’t be surprised if Emery himself was disappointed with the way the club has conducted itself since he joined. It’s been an absolute shambles.

Admittedly I’m a bit disappointed in the way the team are playing but lots of injuries must be considered a factor, but not an outright excuse.

I don’t think he’s done himself any favours with the perceived way he’s handled Ozil. Refusing to put him in the squad even when our creativity has completely dried up seems unreasonable in my eyes. Again there may be more going on behind the scenes but that is the impression I have, given with how the situation has presented itself to the public.

I don’t think he is faultless but think that Emery has to be given leeway for this season with all that’s gone on around him. Start of the next season he can be held properly to account from day 1.

Just my two cents, plus hi I’m new to the forum!

A better pole would be if he doesn’t improve next season = stay or go.

Stating to sack him now is a bit premature but if they did sack him I would be hsppy as I have zero faith in his ability, his history or what my eyes see at present.

Someone who has a clue,

Plus I don’t think we could get anyone decent with kronke at the club,

You took the words right out of my mouth, stoner.

Agree with all that, who ever is calling the shots above emery has the most to answer for, the clubs in a state, I'm not sure it matters who is manager, with the money available if a manager can get top 4 that's an over achievement, that shouldn't be the case obviously, but Chelsea, City, Utd and Liverpool will all out spend us and spurs have a settled team, we may get the odd season where results go for us and we get in, but more often than not the teams that throw the most money at it will rise to the top and I'm not advocating just throwing cash at it like crazy that also doesn't necessarily work, Utd and Chelsea have also had rough rides while spending a lot, but we have the highest ticket prices in Europe but no money to spend despite the stadium being paid off, what's the justification for that?

Hiya Scrog. Nice to hear new views in here :) I think you're totally right. I'm concerned by Emery's possible/ suggested inability to manage big name players and how that may limit us with other players in future (and I can't believe Ozil is even a trouble maker) . Also, Sy's point about having players sending him messages through the media the way AW used to do show's he hasn't exactly got full buy-in from the team, and someone else suggested language issues may be making things more difficult too, but we'll see soon enough how things pan out.

Took the words right out of my mouth Scrog. Agreed with the lot.
