End Emery’s tenure. Now.

Morning folks. It's tough to know where to even start today. I've been banging the 'Emery Out' drum for some time now - since Sheffield United away - but it's all feeling a little hollow. On Monday I said on the GunnersTown radio show that 12 points out of four games was a minimum. Southampton [...]

Does any Arsenal player want to play for Unai Emery’s Arsenal any more?

Perhaps inevitably, with Torreira out in Uruguay for his national team, we have him talking to the national Uruguayan press and in the early hours of this morning we got some translated snippets of him echoing the words of his agent. Quite often you find the agent playing the 'bad guy' so the player doesn't [...]

Arsenal manager: “So who would you get then?”

Morning all. That title is the one you'll most hear from those who don't really want to be seen to be somebody who is advocating a change of direction when it comes to a new manager at a football club. We had it under Arsène, although in the latter stages that was dominated by people [...]

Another uninspiring Arsenal performance at Leicester – is Emery still here?

Sometimes I feel like I write about Arsenal out of some kind of habitual nature, because if I'm completely honest with you, I really don't feel that motivated to do it this morning. Yet here I am, Sunday morning, tapping away at my iPhone trying to make sense of what is going on at Arsenal [...]

Boring, boring Arsenal – more dropped points in Portugal

If anybody was expecting anything other than the turgid football we got last night, can you make yourself known to the nearest steward, because you might need some kind of psychological evaluation. Yesterday late afternoon Unai Emery's Arsenal side delivered an utter stinkfest, again, which saw us outplayed by a team who my mother asked [...]

Arsenal must act before Champions League qualification is unsalvageable

It's Monday and the Arsenal are now - as we expected - six points off a top four place and looking nowhere near close enough to challenging for Champions League football for next season. Leicester showed just how average Palace are and we find ourselves this morning looking at yet more speculation as yesterday there [...]

Xhaka playing on Saturday? Dammed if he do or don’t because of Emery

Ahh the rain. And down she came. Like a metaphorical message relating to what's happening at Arsenal right now. Not in form, not playing well, captain feels like he's been given a rough ride from a few idiots. Still, at least Unai Emery will bowl in to the press conference today, will tell everyone that [...]

The Xhaka situation shows a spineless side to Emery

It's Tuesday morning and as I speak there has been no statement from Granit Xhaka it his 'people', after his public display of displeasure at The Arsenal fans on Sunday, with plenty of people coming out and declaring that they want him to front up and say 'sorry' for his outburst. Last night we spoke [...]

Pepe is Unai’s latest ‘get out of jail free’ card against Vitoria SC

I bet that when Unai Emery plays Monopoly with his family back home, he has a little tamper with the 'Chance' cards before they get started, because based on last night's performance against Vitoria Sporting Clube, he's a guy that loves to ride his luck. And it rides him back. As suspected he named a [...]

Granit’s Bullsh*t, Arsenal’s Bullsh*t, Emery’s Bullsh*t

Granit Xhaka thinks that what Patrice Evra said on Monday night football was 'bullshit'. I think the performance of him and his teammates was bullshit. I think the energy, intensity and structure of the team on Monday was bullshit. I think the side selection and tactical set up against a newly promoted team was bullshit. [...]
