What a lovely weekend we had; although we didn’t win our game, we didn’t lose either. Arsenal just acted out how we expected them to act, by not winning against a beatable team. But despite the draw, and given Arsenal’s problems, Emery is still lucky to be in charge. Good for him, at least for the meantime.
Now, ever since Pochettino was relieved of his job at Spurs, many people have come out to directly or indirectly advise Arsenal to grab him. Some pundits have come out to say we should replace Emery with Pochettino; some have out rightly asked Arsenal to sack Emery. Can we have some quiet please?
I quiet the show of concern from these pundits but I want to ask them to just leave Arsenal alone to sort out their issues. For God’s sake, even the Arsenal owners know that something needs to change, but people coming out to indirectly force a coach on them, is one thing I don’t encourage. Let us check this out…
When Arsenal sacked Wenger, a lot of people came out with possible names that can replace him at Arsenal and Emery was one name that was mentioned enough! How well did it go for us? Did he sort out Arsenal’s problems that Wenger left behind?
Enough of Arsenal hiring below excellent coaches! Enough of looking for a coach that can perform a miracle, with little or no sort of encouragement from the board of arsenal owners. What we need in arsenal, is a coach that can change things around and who can do it fast. With all the coaches whose names are being peddled around, Pochettino is definitely not the one we need at Arsenal.
If we are to sack Emery, then let us do well to replace him with a coach who has a record of winning games and winning trophies. Pochettino is not the solution to Arsenal’s problems and even the pundits know this. No to Pochettino, but then, who can really do a good job for us?
