Arsenal fans absolutely fuming at Unai Emery for collapse at Watford

To say that Arsenal fans are unhappy with Unai Emery is an understatement of mega proportions, they are simply furious with him and rightfully so.

His team selection, team tactics, the way he set the players up, the substitutions etc. Emery has got them all wrong and not just in this game but in so many games previously and a large section of the fan base have simply had enough.

Here is just a taste of what some of the Arsenal faithful are saying on social media.

And on it goes and unless Emery makes gets some positive results soon it is only going to get worse.

Obviously a lot of these tweets are kneejerk reactions but the Spaniard does have a lot of questions to answer and I am not sure he actually has the answers that will appease the fans, not with the mood they are in.

It is still early in the season and there is time to get it right but if Emery is not careful he will end up losing the fans in the same way that Wenger did and once that happens there is no coming back.

    Arsenal are Laughable!

    Is it even possible to make the same mistakes over and over and over and over..

    Must be the only club that can spend so much money and yet not improve a defence?!

    But I will say this, when it comes to generosity, Arsenal have it in abundance!!!!

  2. Invisible says:

    Emery out, Emery out. Rob holding in

  3. Innit says:

    It’s not the end of the world
    City lost to Norwich and they are reigning champions

    It’s silly to demand his firing after an away draw so early in the season.
    Let’s see how and if Emery resolves the problem.

    Yes it’s a disappointing result but let’s not get carried away. Let’s see if he can fix the team

    1. Invisible says:

      We know it’s not the end of the world and we know city lost to Norwich . But it’s about the glaring mistakes that he simply failed to rectify. Was UE sleeping? Might as well appoint Rob holding as head coach.

    2. Targaryen says:

      Pls, no point comparing us with man city. This team is a bloody joke. For ur info arsenal have conceded 96 shots on goal so far this season..far more than any other side in the five major European leagues. Most of the players are not good enough whilst UE is a clown. Period.

      1. Loving says:

        Joe Wilocks & Nelson can’t possibly be the reason for selling Iwobi otherwise it’s a big mistake.I Can’t believe that arsenal can’t withstand pressure & fuse passes when they need to. This team needs to wake up otherwise let’s forget top 4 finish

    3. gryphon3000 says:

      Innit

      it’s not the result…well it is But how we arrive at the results. It’s Wenger v2, fans can see the regular poor performers who inexplicably gets auto selection and one of these clowns is even made captain…who makes these decisions? You do not have a cohesive defence or midfield and do mot have a creative midfielde YET you persist in playing out from the back? UE style is not suited to these players, Plays them out of position, they are talented but his tactics have hamstrung them. Every time after a lead, we sit back then wonder why we get the wrong resukt? His subs try was schoolyardish. Take out your 3 creative midfielders when we needed to hold the ball? WTF???
      For the Guendozi haters, you guys really don’t understand talent. To improve you need to try new things and take risks and I like the way he is doing so. He is the only Ayer that had the vision, if UE doesn’t demotivate him, he will be world clazz

      1. JJ Pawn says:

        Finally, one year later people are seeing that playing from the back is dangerous… enough to need changing tactics. We miss Czech, who would have changed things by sending some long and medium rage balls to the wings and middle.

    4. George Ukaz says:

      Why is it early Watford sack their coach and you can see the positive of their playing if Unai emery continue this he need to be replaced

  4. dudu says:

    We can’t even out play bottom table team and top table teams so what’s the difference between Arsenal and middle table teams and we are happy with Emery our coach,the worst of it I don’t even understand stand the style of football we are playing…….but am not surprise because before he came to Arsenal a friend from PSG told all these.but its time to say good bye ?.

  5. Georgement says:

    When i said earlier that we dnt have a coach and best we will get at watford is draw,no body believe me. The earlier we do away with this clown the better.

    1. Frank says:

      No direction,our problems is is bad and worse ownership.. imagine still keep UE.no club with ambition will do it.. this man blow our top 4 last season for reasons, now after spending 240million we still know our best eleven and still allowing this man to be our coach.what is xaka, Niles still doing in our team.imgine lius still playing and Chambers that have good preseason seating in the beanch.. well it can only get worse with UE because I don’t see any thing changing at end of day.time to let him go before it destroy us unrepairable …. what a hell a coach will teach a team that doesn’t have a enough confidence to playing back pass .no tactics no nothing.. time to go for the best manger arsenal…stop shit management arsenal. We are better and more than this… Enrique is available,it is best man for the job

  6. Eddie says:

    Lol…Y’all mad? You ain’t see nothing yet!!
    Welcome to the reality I’ve been living in since last season??.

    1. Invisible says:

      Yo not alone bro, we all saw it last season, buy we accepted it as a free run for Emery, but let’s wait till bellerin,holding and Tierney returns before unfurling the banners.

    2. Pat says:

      Me too Eddie, remember we don’t know what we are talking about. He needs more players, he didn’t buy these players. I knew Emery will never come to any good

    3. Andrew Elder says:

      We were lucky to get a 2-2 draw, it should have been 5-2 to Watford. We were that bad in the second half. So no excuses, we were simply outplayed and outfought by a better team.I’m still not convinced by UE but he should be given until the end of the season. But knowing how the club have operated in the past they will probably extend his contract irrespective of what happens.

  7. Sue says:

    ION… Nketiah scores every 62 minutes for Leeds!

    1. Eddie says:

      Sue, how are you faring after that shít show???
      I know Pat’s more stronger than you on this front tho??

      1. Sue says:

        Pat’s hardcore ?
        I just knew we’d let that lead go, Eddie… so nowhere near as arsey as i was against the spuds.. think I’m beginning to believe we’ll gift 2 goals (including a penalty) every week now ?

        1. Pat says:

          Yes babe am here. Am just very angry with this mess ups. Imagine our array of talents, how much the board spent even though most people here critics them above Emery?. Emery is making us look worse than we are honestly.

          1. Peter says:

            I completely agree we are not as bad as emery makes us look

          2. Frank says:

            No direction,our problems is is bad and worse ownership.. imagine still keep UE.no club with ambition will do it.. this man blow our top 4 last season for reasons, now after spending 240million we still know our best eleven and still allowing this man to be our coach.what is xaka, Niles still doing in our team.imgine lius still playing and Chambers that have good preseason seating in the beanch.. well it can only get worse with UE because I don’t see any thing changing at end of day.time to let him go before it destroy us unrepairable

        2. Pat says:

          Sue hardcore? ???❤️?? thanks. That is a compliment. But I was very upset today though. Eddie I thought Ozil played well today.

          1. Sue says:

            We’re awful, Pat.. absolutely terrible.. i just don’t see the point in getting upset anymore.. although i think i used all my rage up against the spuds ??
            I think, right now, it’s going to get worse before it gets better… do you think we’ll wake up tomorrow to Unai’s sacking??

  8. Lenohappy says:

    Emery killed the match immediately he removed Ceballos instead of ozil and to cap it all guendouzi for that clown Nelson, only God knows what Niles do in training or is our academy that bad that we can’t get another Rb, all our English youngsters are so overated, Nelson should be playing in division one, I feel so sad for aubamayang he gave his all today and, only God knows what emery was thinking for taking out Ceballos am so sad today.

    1. Sue says:

      I feel for him too, Lenohappy.. all his good work undone by dare i say, dumb & dumber??
      What an awful result & those idiotic comments from Xhaka (our captain ?) have really riled me..
      I would say don’t be sad, but i feel your pain.. totally with you on that!

      At least things are going well for Eddie.. pity it’s with Leeds!!

    2. Gunaboy says:

      So Neelson was supposed to be an upgrade on Iwobi? We need to do a research on why English youngsters never seem to grow up at arsenal, perhaps they love the tag young guns so much. Look at Mount @Chelsea, Rice @westham, they’ve become men so fast, but not at arsenal, those arsenal kids all look like toddlers.

    3. Targaryen says:

      @lenohappy, UE is a joke really, completely devoid of any tactical intelligence. His excuse for taking off Ceballos is due to the weather being too hot for the Spaniard whilst forgetting that Ceballos actually comes from the sunniest part of Spain! Clown.

  9. Timie says:

    I just remembered that Allegri is available. It’s time the Arsenal board start talking to him. Do we even have a coach now?

    1. Invisible says:

      I’llAGREE yeah. Rob Holding is also available.

    2. Bora says:

      Having been 2-0 up, we ended being lucky to hang onto a point.

      Watford had 30 attempts on goal to our 7.

      That’s a bad result, a dismal performance, and at the heart of it is that this team is poorly coached, badly organised and with no footballing identity. “I’d argue that today, the first official nail in Emerys coffin has been hammered in. I don’t know how many nails are needed for said coffin but today felt pivotal. Very disappointing. Very boring too, which is almost more disappointing considering all the excitement he promised”.

    3. Andrew Elder says:

      Allegri was always my first pick. One thing for certain, we would have a proper defence by now. Quality coach look what he did for Juve!!!

  10. Joe says:

    Emery is clueless and lacks tactical approach. Complete failure

  11. Georgement says:

    A coach that have no system of play. An intelligent clown that knew that watford is a physical team instead of playing torriera and willock who can mark,he went to play strollers xhaka and guendouzi.
    The last time Arsenal was under pressure in the second half like this was against barcelona in 2007 . I dnt blame the defenders

    1. Invisible says:

      Yeah Blame the water boy.

  12. Dan says:

    Arsenal were shocking got to be the worse team I have seen you can’t possibly be taught to defend like that its been a big issue for last 5 years plus and still not been addressed had we played a top team they would have scored 6 or 7 it was that bad we are a million miles away from challenging for tittle let alone top 4 carries on like this and Dick Emery has to go alone with quite a few others!!

  13. MadHatter says:

    I have held out hope that Emery would be able to add some tactical flexibility to the squad, something I feel we have been missing for years, but this…… Fekk knows what this is but it isn’t it.
    I’m not saying it’s time to sack him just yet but if he doesn’t start showing us he actually has a game plan by January I think Raul and Edu may well get shot of him and give Freddie the reins for rest of the season.
    We have a squad packed with so much potential, that could be delivering the beautiful attacking football we all crave….. To see it being wasted week in week out is almost criminal ?

    1. Uchman says:

      U can’t win 3 fa cups and 3 community shields in 4 years beating the likes of city,Liverpool, man u, Chelsea,Tottenham etc enroute to winning those trophies without being technically sound, u can’t continually qualify for champions league for a consecutive 20 years with low budgets without being technically sound, its some of u toxic fans who need a realty check!!!!

  14. ruelando says:

    Questions asked of Emery, is it unjust, after watching Luis and Socrat giving Watford the opportunities. Probably would have won without those errors.

    Questions for Emery
    – what is arsenal style of play
    – what are our main 11

    While substitution sometimes win or lose us the game, it was odd seeing Ceballos come off before Guendouzi(yellow card) and Ozil, who seemed fresher than both, even Ceballos himself seemed puzzled by the decision

  15. Georgement says:

    Though i dnt text here often but please check all my text since last season i always maintain that all this clown thinks is how to counter the oponent strenght and have never how play to his own team strenght and ability. He never likes creativity thats why he will continue to substitue ceballos and ozil till the end of the season . He was the one the let go carzola and ramsey. Boring and ruderless coach

  16. JEMMAN says:

    There’s nothing Emry can resolve He led PSG to four nil against Barca and still lost woefully in the second leg, with Star studded team like PSG He didn’t achieve much. Calling for his sack now is not too early. He has spent a full season and He is still clueless. How can Watford Boss ARSENAL,,,? With Ten men last season and today a bottom of the premier league table team ran riots and rings all over us and with non positive tactics, selections and no definite and coherent pattern worsened his incompetence with his weird substitutions. The earlier Emry is sacked the better for us. No no no, don’t tell me that Man city lost to Norwich it’s not a consolation you forget they treble champion what are we, I supported Wenger’s removal and still do but with the crop of players we parade now he will perform far better than what this fraud is doing now. People called Iwobi headless chicken tell me now what we should call Emry and magical Reiss Nelson.

    1. K as says:

      Now is when everyone will know iWobi is better than all this overhype English boys

  17. Sue says:

    I swear Arsenal will drive me to drink..either that or A&E

  18. JEMMAN says:

  19. AY75 says:

    Even when all our injured players do return, it’s pointless keeping this manager, he’ll always find a way to stifle his team’s performances with his tactics and team selection…. The sooner we part with him the better…. I preferred him to Arteta, yes… but that was because he is supposed to be the more experienced of the two, and now I’m thinking we might have been better off with Arteta. Emery has shown us he’s a mid-table team coach at best, and that isn’t what this club deserves at all…. we should have tried to sign Conte, and get this clown kicked out.

  20. Franko says:

    All the do in training is play and laugh like kids in a playground. So what do you expect?

    1. ozziegunner says:

      I concur, there appears no urgency or intensity. The Arsenal players are overpaid prima donnas, who need a stern discipline to “toughen the f**k up”. Mistake ridden players like Luis and Socrates need to be dropped from the first team.

  21. Mikki says:

    Arsenal has the worst academy players,compare to others Gomez, Arnold, Liverpool,for some years spur has Kane,dier,rose,and many more…arsenal has the worst midfiders they can’t control games by holding on to possession to lessen the pressure they are facing and no protection from the midfielders to help the defence.. Arsenal has the worst coach he should be sack or I don’t see arsenal going anywhere with Emery…. Socratis is a disgrace…if they had won 10point with man city we can’t take advantage from The fall of others…arsenal players are not good enough that’s the bitter truth….no upgrade on iwobi yet although is not good enough but is better

  22. ideal says:

    It is obvious that d coaching crew don’t have d competence for this job.So many things here don’t look promising:the team don’t have a style,can’t keep possession of d ball or even connect passes, very slow movement to defend or attack; they don’t close down or mark with intent to force opposition into error or loose d ball;the players are really indisciplined both to defend or attack;they only play to d gallery… seem to want to out play each other(childish) they don’t priorities team victory .They can’t stay focused to finish or see off a game completely.When will arsenal and d players play team game for team victory instead of competing against each other? UE doesn’t seem to solve any problem.. .maybe worse than Wenger!

  23. JOEL says:

    Arsenal have been fairly poor in all of their games this Season and their last eight of last season.This doesn’t bode well for Emery’s stewardship.The defending is laughable and the transition through midfield difficult to watch most of the time.To play a side of Watford’s quality and concede over 20 shots on goal is utterly ridiculous.
    The team dont look like they understand how the Manager wants them to play…which isnt surprising as he’s impossible to understand during the course of every single press conference.Clearly Arsenals version of David Moyes…a man found to be thoroughly out of his depth.

  24. OKOH UCHE Richie says:

    Seems Emery had innate sympathy for Flores since the guy is Spanish and knowing full well Watford can’t get a point against bitter Man City. It was obvious to the blind man that Arsenal was going to collapse the moment he yanked off Ceballos . Why allow the club to sell Iwobi? Didn’t he factor injury all season? Imagine if Aubameyang is injured.Only Emery know the answer. Imagine if Wenger has 200m pounds to spend in 2 seasons. Gutted is an understatement.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Where do you get the £200 million from? I’m glad you’re not my accountant!

  25. Aussie Jack says:

    My comment on this game got lost in the admin somewhere, maybe because I said I had little faith in the Gunners and suggested they would struggle against Watford. I did however think they would come away with the points with a 1-2 win. I got that wrong. IMO Emery is not for Arsenal, nor are the back four.

  26. ron ryan says:

    sad to say emery is clueless (and he has the advantage of seeing the players everyday.) Why:-
    *Not always play your strongest team
    *Take your best player Cellabos off (he was bemused when replaced which aint good if we want to get him to stay)
    *Why start Ozil in a game like Watford away
    *Why play Xhaka ever ( tell me his one asset)
    *make subs that change nothing

  27. Roshan says:

    I want Naglesmen from RB Lezpig. He’s gonna be the next big coach.
    I also want all the back room staff from RB Lezpig, they seem to identify talent early and buy them cheap.

  28. Greg misakyan says:

    Thank God Micki left.

  29. Mogunna says:

    The board created this mess! They have no football culture but all about cash.

    To impose no money to Wenger for a decades and sack him who built so much for 2 decades highlight this two facts.

    He should have been treated as Ferguson or best, seems unreal how cold blooded these money hungry are!

    Like erasing all he has done to start a new Arsenal. Their boomerang us on its way back, for our worst season since Wenger days…Idiots!

  30. davidodav says:

    guys I already said it last year when he messed up 4th position. This coach is clueless. He is not fit for this role. Wenger was really bad but to be honest for me he is way better than this clown. At least you know his philosophy. My advise is better to give chance for Allegri or Mourinho. The reason why I do still mad on Wenger is why he did left early so that we could have got Klopp! I am really so tired of messing up my weekend with this team. with that depressing feeling, I am easily fighting with family members. Arsenal , are you planning to get me divorced?lol….seriously I will get mad easily after the Arsenal pathetic performance….

    1. davidodav says:

      why he did not*..sorry for the typo

  31. Winner says:

    The manager must sort the problems out or be sacked. It’s that simple. The board did its part in the market. No defender can improve arsenal if every time the opposition attacks the defenders are outnumbered. It was the same story against spurs. The team was so vulnerable that every attack threatened to result in a goal. It’s not just today. The last six premier league games of last season were also catastrophic. To that add the eufa final. Conclusion-Emery has reached his limit.

    1. JJ Pawn says:

      Playing from the back is not good when the back line cannot handle the ball. It is better to play old fashioned defense at the back and let the attack led by Ozil do their thing.

      Having a great attack across the front means the long pass, even the deep ball, can lead fast attacks from any side. This is a side better than Wenger’s attack, but cannot get the ball as it is stuck in back.

      We can bring Wenger back too… LOL.

      One other issue that Emery has: he does not work well with superstars.

  32. Scubagooner says:

    Watford subs were all positive, arsenal subs were all negative, the rest was history. Very bad decisions today very disappointing this trend needs to stop and fast.

  33. Kenya 001 says:

    @innit you really don’t know what you are talking about these guy Emery you say he got a draw away so tell me how many away wins does he have in the epl since coming to arsenal? Think we talked about his away form and it is really wanting Watford bossing us! Can’t believe we have come these low.I really now want Emery out.what happened to the pressing game he started with? Yes you said then we let him buy his players….aubameyang &laca are the only consistent players .. oooh a certain Wenger brought them to the club so tell me has Emery really improved ARSENAL!!?
