Freddie Ljungberg promises Arsenal fans to give everything he has

Freddie Ljungberg promises to put a smile back on the faces of Arsenal fans

It has been very tough to watch Arsenal play for much of this season and that explains why a very low turn out was recorded at the Emirates Stadium as the Gunners were beaten 2-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt.

That loss resulted in the sacking of Unai Emery, with the Spaniard now out of the way, the Gunners have turned to club legend, Freddie Ljungberg to turn their season around on an interim basis.

The Swede who was the coach of the club’s youth side before he became assistant to Emery will be in charge for the game against Norwich City this weekend.

Shortly after his appointment, Ljungberg went on twitter to tweet his commitment to making the team better and the fans happier.

Arsenal are now looking at several other managers to take over the position permanently, however, if the former forward does a good job, he may be at the helm until at least the end of the season.

    I get the feeling Ljunberg is going to manage Arsenal for the remainder of the season because Pep Gurdiola indicated Arteta may not be available until the end of the season and Erik Ten Hag is in the same position as he refused offers from Bayarn Munich until the end of the season. I do not see the Board bringing in Allegri although that will be good. Either Arteta or Ten Hag is capable of continuing with the Arsenal tradition of free flowing football that got lost in Unai emery’s 18 months. I am happy the board finally put Unai Emery out of his stress. I guess he was hoping to be sacked since resigning will cost him the balance payments for the duration of his contract. I hope he takes some time off to reflect on what went wrong and comes back stronger.

    I hope Ljunberg will be able steady the ship, and maybe even nick us a CL qualification…. the players will have to cooperate with him though, and he should be ruthless enough to cast aside any players that aren’t giving 100%. Only those willing to play for the badge should be starting. I wish him luck, he’ll probably need a lot of that too, given the sorry state we’re in at the moment.
    Hopefully, we’ll get Ten Hag in the summer….. I wouldn’t mind us getting Pochettino now too, he’s a very good option in my opinion

    Finally the Arsenal is back. I think the Freddie appointment was wise with all that’s happening now any celebrity manager coming would have to hit the ground running. Fans restless in this moment hence a cooling off period of no expectations are necessary. My two concerns are who will be Freddie’s second and who will he choose to captain us.
    Also congrats to Pat and Eddie two people who surely knows their football.

    The fans owe it to Freddie and the team to support them now. We got what we wanted and rightly so BUT it’s possible things won’t improve massively as Freddie is still an apprentice and so should not be expected to turn us into Liverpool overnight. He’s there to steady the ship, no more. The board may have taken longer than we might have wanted but they handled the whole thing respectfully towards UE.
    Im hoping a new manager will make his immediate priority our defence and get us some clean sheets. Every great team is built from the back forwards, never the other way around

    Freddie will get us back to playing Arsenal football; attacking, free flowing, attractive.

    His appointment will calm things down, and the fans will be patient and trust in him.

    He can’t do worse than Emery.

    1. Durand says:

      By the way, Freddie does have the required licenses to manage until the end of the season.

      The 12 weeks nonsense has been put to bed.

      I think Freddie will finish the year and they will bring in a new manager in the Summer, unless Allegri or Ponch take the gig now.

      That’s just wild guess, I have no idea what the club’s plans are, just glad Emery sacked and Freddie has taken over for now.

      1. ozziegunner says:

        Durand, thanks for putting that to bed. Can you provide your source please re coaching for Europa League?

  7. I hope for the sake of Arsenal, the players, the fans and Freddie himself Arsenal does well under him. I think he will do well because he is a true Gunner through and through and as fans we should all support him to the fullest. The players also should give their 100% to Freddie and the shirt and soon we will get our Arsenal back.
