Unai Emery destroyed our top 4 chances and must be sacked no matter what. by Konstantin Mitov
I don’t care what happens from now until the end of the season. I want to see Unai Emery sacked. Tonight if possible. This is a disgrace. This goes far beyond a joke. This manager and those players better take a long hard look at themselves.
Look at the substitutions we made. We made our squad much worse by changing a team who was on the up and had Brighton on the ropes. Who do you scare if you see Guendouzi, Iwobi and Kolasinac come on? Right now I don’t see a difference between them or any reader on this site being on the pitch. Even 6th place is high for our recent performances.
Now you see, it’s not just Mustafi. It’s everybody. We appointed a manager who’s biggest success is winning the Europa League. This practically meant “we aren’t good enough to go in the top 4, so we’ll try the Europa on a budget”. It is not how the real world works. I feel bad for Lacazzete, Aubameyang and Leno. The only players who look like they really want it. If I was Ramsey I’d be happy I’m leaving.
To go forward, this football club ultimately needs a new owner. Somebody who would actually care. because we don’t have the fanbase that will put the necessary effort to make a real statement. But even with that said, make no mistake, this was a golden year to capitalize on the mistakes other made and make it back to champions league. The manager has ZERO excuses. His rotational mistakes against Palace is what put us in this position and he must pay the price.
He is not Wenger. He has not done anything good for this football club ever – and if he’s not sacked, this will be the complete capitulation of the idea of change, because nothing has changed. We should’ve gone for an experienced manager, who can handle pressure. That game against Barcelona when he was in charge of PSG should’ve put a black stamp on any potential way to a top club in Europe, but we’re no longer a top club.
The League is the ultimate challenge. It’s hard and it requires consistency. You can squeeze far in a cup competition, but the championship is where you prove yourself. I actually think we’ve gone further back despite the bigger point tally than last year. This is the ultimate bottom. Even if we somehow win the Europa League which is extremely unlikely, I repeat myself, we’re papering over the cracks.
Our defense is bad, our midfield is bad, we don’t have one proper winger. How do you repair all this on 45 million pounds? This used to be a proud football club. It was an honor to wear it’s badge. What has happened in the last 10 years is pretty much only better than bankrupting the club.
We have destroyed our identity. It is so painful to say this now, but I now think we should’ve stuck with Wenger. What’s the difference anyway. Even he would’ve won against Brighton in this scenario. We are Arsenal charity club, where it doesn’t matter if you’re bad, we’ll give you a ton of money and no responsibilities.
I’m done with this. We got exactly what we deserved for hiring a clown. Arteta would’ve been much better. He studies from Pep, one of the best in the business. Look at how Man City win every game. They must do it, they’re always under pressure, but they do it. Even if they don’t win the league, can you question their mentality and character? They went out of the Champions League on away goals, but then hosted Tottenham and went to United and dominated them and won.
A change of mentality is what we need. This ultimately starts with the manager and ends with the players. Both are nowhere near good enough for this football club. Or maybe, they are, because they are still here. We should try and get a manager who knows what it is to defend. As much as I hate it, I’d go for Mourinho right now. He was spot on about United’s players if you look at their miserable failure, but do you know the major difference between us and them?
They will make changes. Ed Woodward’s face is in the cameras as much as OGS. They will take action. Even if it’s the wrong one, they will try to make it happen again next year. They will put up the money if needed so that they can get where they want to be. They will get rid of Sanchez and they will invest.
Do you see us offering Ozil 10 million, so he can leave early? Never going to happen. And his wages are one of our biggest problem in terms of balancing the book. Look at Ajax in Europe. It doesn’t have to be big money signings. Why didn’t we buy Tadic? Why do we never shop in the premier league to get experienced players who know this league?
We lack English players. Those willing to put up a dogfight. Those who would scrape through a game. This football club ultimately lacks people who care and that will always result in the way it does now. And what you need to remember very carefully is that even if a miracle bigger than Lazarus appears and we win the Europa League, not making those changes would destroy us.
Next season, we’ll be poor again. We’ll face a Bayern in the champions league and we’ll be beaten 5-1 again. Our sole goal shouldn’t be just to get the Champions League money, which it is in the last 15 years, it should be to progress and become the best, so we can actually win the competition.
Weakness crawls in the bones of those players and this manager. I’d be ashamed. I’d say sorry to the fans. Do they even understand what a pain being an Arsenal fan is? Pathetic. I tell you again, it doesn’t matter really if we win the Europa League. It’s about what we want to build in the future. If we want to invest in this football club and get players who can propel us further up the table, we’d be planning for this regardless of the Europa League. Our goal would be to cut the gap to the top.
Now it’s just about getting some stupid Champions League money and nothing else. Those players don’t look like they want to play in Europe’s elite competition. They don’t look like they want to play at all. How many players lost their motivation at Arsenal? Even Theo Walcott did it. We give bad players a good life here and they stop caring, because they aren’t fighters and they aren’t trained and managed to be ones.
I said enough on this site. I wanted to not write anything again, but for some dumb reason I care about this football club. Honestly, you can only care so much about rich people who don’t care at all. If the richest man in Africa wants to buy Arsenal, there isn’t a better time. The stocks of this club should get lower by the minute. Things will ultimately go worse. Next season the other teams will invest and we’ll be further down the dust battling with teams like Watford and Wolves and hoping to be 6th.
It’s what Arsenal deserves for the way it is ran. We promoted a guy nobody heard of to the top of the food chain. A person from marketing. What about footballing people? Think how much of those are left here. If I’m David Dein I’d be wondering what the hell happened. And you know what the worse thing is? He himself said that he tried to talk to people in the club. Think about that for a moment. If he can’t do anything, what can we? I’m depressed, so depressed, and it all could’ve been so different if we had a real manager.
Ultimately in life you reap what you sow…
