I may upset a few people on here, but as you probably guess I don’t care, I’ve always said it was kronke we should have got rid of and not Wenger, I’ve moved on didn’t like emery at the start because I knew he was garbage, he needs to go for me be4 he makes a even bigger mess than he already has.

Love how you assume that its all Emery's fault. and you can't just 'get rid' of Kronke. Unless you've forgotten he's the owner of Kronke Sports and Entertainment which is the holding company of Arsenal, The Rams, Denver Nuggets and many others. Trust me, I don't want him there either but simply 'getting rid' isn't an option.

He inherited a disorganised unmotivated underachieving squad and has maintained what he inherited to perfection.

Kronke is ultimately to blame he has control of the club there is no getting away from that .

Dick inherited a large proportion of the current squad he has to be given a summer transfer window, let’s see where we are this time next year .

In saying the above some of Dicks decision making has been baffling but this season was a ‘freebie’ the next one isn’t .

All Emery had to do was improve us defensively and he'd have had most of eating out of his hand, improving the Arsenal defensive organisation and discipline that Arsene left us with should have been the easy bit for any half tidy manager but it's been beyond Emery and that has to be a worry for all Arsenal fans.

I get that but in a WC year it doesn’t make it easy and he didn’t have long before the start of the season, it’s easier said than done, we have a decent keeper we lost Holding ( who was doing well at the time ) and Bellerin both long term injuries that’s 50% of the back four, that’s out of anyone’s control.

{Ed001's Note - and again the excuses. Liverpool spent half the winter without half a defence, playing midfielders at centre back and right back for a large portion of games, but they managed to get through ok. The difference is that they have a manager who can organise the defence.}

The difference is that Liverpool also had players covering who could defend. Liverpool could bring in Milner who's played in defence before, plus Fabinho for a couple of games and again he's pretty solid defensivly. Arsenal plugged a CB gap with Xhaka and still rely on the likes of Monreal to do the job. I totally agree that organisation is key but the players do help. Milner, VVD, Fab and Robbo or MN, Sok, Xhaka and Monreal? 😂.

{Ed001's Note - Maitland-Niles has played more games at full-back than any other position, Xhaka is supposedly a defensive midfielder. More excuses to cover up for a failing manager. The problem was not and never has been the players, there are plenty of clubs out there with worse defenders that have much better defensive records.}

That is the thing, plenty of premier league clubs don't have defenders of our quality but look more solid, how can that be?
This was the problem under Arsene and remains the problem under Emery.
What's the point of simply buying different defenders who will struggle the same way as the existing defenders do under a system that isn't designed get the best out of them as a unit.

All the best teams know the value of being difficult to score against and quite simply niether Arsene or Emery share this philosophy.

Come off it, so how do you class failing? He’s had one season . Just how much has Klopp won? So is he failing as well? And the money Klopp has spent far out weighs what Dick has .

Don’t ever become an owner of a club, you’d have a manager each season if they won nothing

Your too harsh, patience is needed, or at least another season.

{Ed001's Note - I am not talking about one season though, nor am I talking about Klopp, who took over a team spiralling into the relegation battle at the time Rodgers was sacked. Emery took over a team on the verge of top 4, got given a massively improved defensive group and still can't get them to defend, something that has plagued him throughout his career. I am not too harsh, I am just not blind.}

Couldn't agree more Ed001.
Simply put Emery is not a good manager. Yes we're in a better position in the league than we were under Arsene however we're arguably getting by on luck. It'd be interesting to see our stats from this season compared to an average of Wenger's last 3. We seem to be creating less whilst still being as defensively frail.

Can we honestly say given the players Emery has had at his disposal that he's outperformed what Arsene would have?

We went one better in Europa League, but that's with the additions of Torreira, PEA, Sokratis, Leno and Guendouzi and some of the youngsters progressing.

I still think its the way we set up as a team to defend, rather than the actual defenders that's causing our issues. Yet again, 3 of Chelsea's goals came from a player just outside our box being completely unmarked, and therefore able to look up and pass with ease into our box. Good teams, such as Liverpool and Spurs press constantly and make life tough for the opposition team to get the ball into those areas that lead to chances. We dont, we rely on stopping the goal at the last possible point. For me, time to drop the 3 at the back, as if you concede 4, it clearly doesn't work. Going back to a flat 4 gives the option of another body in midfield that will help pressure the ball further away from goal.

Of course you can force owners out don’t turn up to games or don’t buy anything at the games it will hit them in the pocket, that’s the only thing that matters to him it’ll hurt him more than dull banners of kronke out, how people can’t see he’s not good enough is a joke.
