Arsenal legend rips into the players and Unai Emery following awful display

Tony Adams slams Arsenal’s performance against Southampton and calls for Unai Emery’s sacking.

Arsenal’s 2-2 draw was just too bad for Tony Adams and the former Gunners’ legend has called for a change of management at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners were hoping that their team would finally win a game when they hosted struggling Southampton at the Emirates today, but it wasn’t to be and the fans have been left frustrated again. No, they have been left furious.

One of the most frustrating fans has to be Adams himself, a fighter to the end. He didn’t hold back as he launched a stinging rebuke of the team’s performance and insisted that the team was regressing under Unai Emery.

Arsenal’s draw means they are now ninth in the standings and a top-four finish is even harder to achieve now.
Several former Arsenal players have been calling for the sacking of Unai Emery before this game, and Adams joined that group today after watching their horror show against The Saints.

He told BT Sport via the Daily Mail: ‘I’m just smashed to bits with the performance. At one point Ozil was sweeper, getting the ball off his keeper and trying to run it through everybody.

‘The boos are deserved – it was a terrible, terrible performance, very disjointed, no defending in sight.

‘That’s a really poor performance and I don’t want any coach losing his job, but the club’s not going forward, it’s not progressing.

‘I can put a team together that’s more organised than that!’

The former defender also picked out David Luiz for scrutiny for his role in the lead up to Southampton’s opener.

He said: ‘They’re all sleeping, look at Luiz here. What is Luiz doing? He’s just standing there.’

Difficult to argue with what Adams has said.

    Please stan sack Emery now give us best Christmas present ever

  2. Matty says:

    Find a new manager like Poch and bring Adams or Keown in as defense coach on a game by game basis. Peter Crouch said teams are divided up by managers as ‘tip top Charlie’s / the strikers’ and ‘ham and eggers/ midfield and defenders’… Adams gets the ham and eggers and at least we stop giving away silly goals.

    1. Dan he cannon says:

      Adams shouldn’t be anywhere near our squad. We need to bring in John Jensen again and Anders limpar, with Francis Jeffers as the head coach.

    2. Jon says:

      You can’t bring Adams in. Unless he’s manager. He’d be way overpowering

      that is exactly what i want to see happen

    Just been speaking to my West Ham nephews and we were arguing about Pellegrini and Emery………..I was fighting in the corner for Emery that he should be awarded Premier League C##t of the Month !

    Emery out. They better go get the Ajax coach now before another club snatch him. He can play the game the way Arsenal fans love it.
    When Klopp was at Dortmund I wanted him to replace Wenger but the club were keeping faith in Wenger now look. Also when Pep was jobless I also wanted him both our board messed it up by keeping faith with Wenger.
    The board need to act now, sack Emery by Monday, let Llungberg become Caretaker manager and get the Ajax coach to replace him in the summer.

    Another post that featured Tony was posted a little while ago and I remember someone saying somrthing like dont take any notice of Tony…what he is saying today is exactly what most of us are thinking after todays debacle.

    He certainly has called out Luiz for what others have accused Ozil of doing and, meanwhile highlighting what a shift Ozil put in today….more of the same please Mesut.
