Wanting Arsenal to lose so Unai Emery is sacked is madness.
Using the words losing the plot or madness may seem a bit strong but I cannot think of another way to describe Arsenal fans wanting the team to lose just to get Emery out.
First and foremost it makes no sense at all. If Emery does not get sacked because the team is winning then that is a good thing.
If by some miracle the team goes on long winning run scrapes into top-four, wins the Europa League and the FA Cup then that is a very successful season. That is what winning means.
I get the argument that Emery could lead the team to a couple of wins, then they lose again and so on. That would obviously make finishing top-four beyond reach but even so, that is still no reason to want the team to lose.
If that was to happen and Emery is still in his job then that is down to the board and if they cannot get it right at this time, what makes you think they will make the right calls with another manager in charge.
When you start going down the road wanting your team to lose to get the manager sacked a line gets crossed. What next? lose so a player gets dropped, hope a defender concedes a penalty so he gets dropped. I am sorry, that is madness.
Put it this way, if there was ever a circumstance that a loss to say Liverpool at the Emirates means Tottenham could not win the title I would still want Arsenal to win.
I don’t care about other teams, I care about Arsenal. I want the ladies to win, the youth team to win, I want to win in friendlies, in charity games, in testimonials. Literally in every game at every level no matter the circumstances.
Once that Rubicon is crossed where a loss is the desired outcome then trust me on this, you can never step back. Once you want that there will be another time. Is that really what any Arsenal fan should want?
