Checking through the latest Arsenal headlines I could not help seeing a variety of headlines claiming all sort of problems between Unai Emery and his players.
Naturally, I looked into this latest breaking news, it could be huge if it was true and would explain some of the events we have seen in recent weeks.
Well, I did the clicking through the articles until I came to the original source of this sensational news, it was non-other than John Cross at the Mirror.
I should have known better really, Cross is an avid Arsenal fan but he really has little credibility when it comes to breaking Arsenal news and it is clear he has no insider knowledge, not with the number of times he gets it wrong.
Of course, I read through the article and there were not any sources to any of the information he was claiming to be true.
It literally read like an opinion piece with unsubstantiated claims that anyone could have written in deepest Macedonia (the land of fake news).
Apparently, the players are confused by Emery’s tactics, they could not understand his formation against Liverpool, they struggle to understand his English and he bores the hell out of them with his analysis.
Fans have been guessing these issues for weeks, just read some of the comments on this site but because John Cross at the Mirror writes about something in a way that claims it is authoritative it is then copied and spread all over the place and takes on a life of its own.
These are the facts, Cross has no clue what the relationship is between the players and manager, it is all guesswork and nothing more than uncorroborated nonsense.
