What is the logic behind Emery's policy of naming 5 captains?

Agree1 Disagree0

His favourite number is 5! which is why he likes to aim for 5 3 wins and made sure his first signing was Suarez on a 5 month loan why he did nothing to sort out our defensive weaknesses during last seasons run in order to make sure we finished 5th rather than 4th which would have messed with his high five philosophy.

Can’t make decisions?

Doesn’t want to manage big players?

Give the guy a break, jesus.

It wasn’t a criticism Glen, I was simply wondering what was The idea behind this unusual policy.

Not necessarily aimed at your post Arg my man. Just in general. Getting very tired of seeing all the crap he gets when he's been there 1 season, with a team that was absolutely shocking at the back to begin with. I agree that he's not really brought any improvement in respect of our defence but with Holding and Bellerin they were looking much stronger for the 1st 15/ 16 games. They had their moments but it was better. People can be pro-wenger all they like but he wasn't up to the job anymore simple as that! Emery needs a little time and Saliba and Tierney are quality signings (if they happen) . Yes he's being loaned back but he's 18 and is one of the most promising talents coming out of the French youth at present. Its a good move, let's see how it goes.

The 5 being his favourite number thing was a joke but I do think his 5 captains thing and his win 5 3 mentality are both equally ridiculous.

I know it was Gunner mate 🤭.

19 Jul 2019 20:45:55
You talking to me? 🚖.

19 Jul 2019 21:59:39
Yeah I know you do Glen mate I should have really put a :-) at the end of my reply.
I actually don't mind the bloke I simply struggle with his methods and ideas but genuinely hope to eat humble pie as he turns us round and Bach into a credible force again.
I'd much rather be wrong about him.

19 Jul 2019 22:22:39
I hope you and I are wrong 62 but I have a sneaky feeling we won’t be wrong unfortunately. No doubt some will lower the bar so far that he succeeds 😉.

{Ed047's Note - I was checking out the club page and it had a video titled defensive training drills, I thought wow he’s actually doing some defensive training and clicked on the vid thinking they’d be drilling them as a unit.

Nah, jumping over hurdles and doing sprints! 🤷‍♂️

20 Jul 2019 06:55:31
To be fair, they have to jump over Mustafi on the floor and then sprint to cover him. I see the method.

20 Jul 2019 07:50:24
Sounds like agility lessons Ed047, maybe Emery has hired someone from the canine defences league to help out :-)
He's really got to improve his understanding and expression of the English language before our defenders are forced to all wear stockings in an attempt to keep it tight at the back in big games:-)

{Ed047's Note - 😂 it certainly wasn’t what I was hoping to see gunner62!

Maybe Barbara Woodhouse could help out.

20 Jul 2019 10:39:00
Excellent idea Ed047 mate but don't let Emery make the phone call or we will end up with Barbara Windsor and what a carry on that would be:-)
Mind you with Babs Windsor we'd be both very impressive up top and none to shabby at the back either :-)

20 Jul 2019 11:08:56
Ed mate with all the vid the club posts, I never see any defensive training. Or maybe they don’t want us to see it ;) .
Glen mate, that his second season so that's his second chance to get his players, sort out his defence and get tactics right. He want to be involved in the transfer so let's see what will happen. I just hope he doesn’t pull another D Suarez.

{Ed047's Note - me neither Moe that’s why I was so interested so see what it was they were doing but zero looked to have anything to do with defensive training which was so disappointing.

20 Jul 2019 11:11:38
Barbara Woodhouse! Showing your age there Ed! I think the issue is we keep forgetting to take the hurdles onto the pitch during the game!

{Ed047's Note - haha I have to admit I googled “famous dog trainer” and her name came up.

20 Jul 2019 12:51:03
If we had Barbara Windsor then we’d definitely have two power strikers up front and a strong rear guard 😉.
