Former Gunner urges Arsenal players to confront Unai Emery

Lee Dixon asks Arsenal players to question Unai Emery about his training methods.

Former Arsenal star Lee Dixon is not a fan of Unai Emery and is of the opinion that Unai Emery is confused about what he is doing.

The former star who won four league crowns as a Gunners’ player has instructed the current group of players to question Unai Emery as he believes the Spaniard is confusing them.

Dixon encouraged the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to tell Emery “we don’t know what you’re doing gaffer, can we change it?”

Arsenal has not had the best of starts this campaign and they return from the International Break, 17 points behind leaders, Liverpool.

They have been struggling to show any form of cohesion in games and Emery’s constant tinkering of the teams has led most people to believe that he may be clueless about what he is doing.

Dixon insists that Arsenal is now a predictable side, and they offer nothing different when they play different games.

Dixon said on The Season So Far as cited in the Mirror: “From [having] a shot at one end to conceding a penalty at the other end in the space of 20 seconds – that cannot happen, that has to stop.

“Now that game was Watford – I could have done [Aston] Villa at home, I could have done Liverpool away when he played a narrow midfield and let the Liverpool full-backs run the game.

“I could have picked any number of games and done the same analysis and just overlaid it onto the pitch.

“It’s happening every week – that has to stop and the players have got to go ‘We don’t know what you’re doing gaffer, can we change it? Can we change something?’.

Dixon definitely makes a good call here. I did an article a short while back basically saying the same thing. The players have to sit down with the manager and solve these issues.

There is clearly something amiss and the players and manager working together have a chance to arrest the decline. Divided they stand no chance.

    Poch as arsenal manager? That’ll go as smoothly as McLeish at villa aka A Total Disaster.

    1. Declan says:

      He’d never be able to go out without wearing a bullet proof vest.

  5. Sue says:

    Bloody hell, I thought Unai was favourite to be axed not Poch!!

    1. Declan says:

      Looks like Levy has made a preemptive strike seeing as Emery and Pelegrini could also both be out soon and there are not a lot of decent replacements available at present.

      1. Le Coq Monster says:

        Good point Declan.

      2. Sue says:

        And you were saying earlier how Poch will soon be available!! 👍
        I’m quite surprised, Declan… now who will succeed him?

        1. Declan says:

          Sherwood or Rednapp?🤣
          Seriously, I think Mourinho or Nagelsmann.

          1. Sue says:

            I’d be quite happy with Maureen going there and causing mayhem!!

        2. Mohamed Aziz says:

          Godebening should do 4 spurs🤣

    2. Le Coq Monster says:

      Gets them to CL final and gives them their best team ever and gets sacked…………..sound familiar ?……………………it took them 5 years to sack him, whereas Arsenal took 22 years to sack Wenger……………….Emery should have been somewhere in the middle of 5 to 22 mins to get sack. 🙂

      1. Sue says:

        If only, Le Coq!! Surely he’ll be next!

        1. Le Coq Monster says:

          Emery would be a good fit for Spuds , Sue, as being in our shadow it`s always dark there and Emery could spend more time out of his coffin !

          1. Declan says:

            🦇🧛🏻‍♂️🦇

          2. Sue says:

            🤣🤣 love it!! 👍

  6. Le Coq Monster says:

    Levy :……..“We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”…………….that applies to us as well, yet our board has not acted as quickly !

  7. Le Coq Monster says:

    Could Poch` be heading for the Jungle ? 😆

    I`m an ex-manager, get me in there !

    1. Sue says:

      There are 2 more heading in there soon, perhaps they’ve dropped Minty and Poch will take his place 😜

      1. Le Coq Monster says:

        Emery and Poch going in would be the greatest I`m a Celebrity ever !……………Emery would be brilliant at the rats in a coffin trial………….he`d eat the f##kers !………………Good Ebening Celebrities !

  8. Hope Mickey Mouse(JM) goes to Spuds and destroys them in and out.
