Emery out talks may be getting out of hand; but can you blame those who want him out?
Unai Emery may be the most talked about coach in football at the moment; with results not going his way and stories of players’ unrest, dressing room issues, and open confrontation with his players being spun around in the media, one can only imagine how uncomfortable the Spaniard may be at this juncture. But then, who is to blame for all this?
Naturally, I am not the type to heap negative pressures on a man who is not having it rosy at the moment; I don’t like spinning negative energy around. I will never kick a man who is already down and seriously injured. But when it comes to me wanting the best for my club, I will definitely not keep mute. I agree that things are really getting out of hand regarding Emery and his Arsenal future, but please, nobody should blame those who keep saying “Emery out”.
Arsenal football club is still trying to recover from the grips of a man who stayed as Arsenal’s coach for 22 years, and now that they expect things to start looking positive with their longest serving manager gone, losing games and not playing inspiring football, is something the fans don’t want at this trying period of the club.
If I were to have a meeting with Emery today, I will surely give him a hug and express my full respect for him and the things he has achieved in football. But if he were to ask me what I feel about what he is going through at Arsenal at the moment, I will definitely give him a blunt and honest piece of my mind. I will definitely ask him to reflect on what is going on and decide if he would want to stay. And I would ask if hecan turn things around, or if it will just be better for him to resign, take a few months off football and come back stronger, as coach of another club.
This may probably be the last piece I will write concerning Emery, unless there is a new development, but please, nobody should come out and fight me for wanting good things to happen in my darling club, Arsenal.
I am not just writing this to place Emery on the hot spot, but to also sound out a note of warning to everybody and anybody who has one business or the other at Arsenal, to sit up or get seriously backwashed by fans like me! I have spent my last ten years hoping and wishing Arsenal will truly get back to being great again and I won’t just allow a few people to keep drawing Arsenal back. I have said it severally in the past that Arsenal needs to be brutal and aggressively decisive in running the affaiars of this club, or risk being relegated in the long run.
To those who feel the “Emery out” chants is getting out of hand, accept my unreserved apology but until things start improving at Arsenal, you just have to bear with those of us who will keep on crying, until things are done right again.
