Back to the “drawing” board for Arsenal fans by Konstantin Mitov
Well, lovely Arsenal people, if your footballing weekend was bad already, the news are the Arsenal board are “100 percent” behind Unai. The man who gave us our worst start in 37 years!
I lauded the Arsenal board for signing Pepe and giving us funds this summer, but Emery is a disaster, and if Raul and Edu do not make a bold decision, the banners will be pointing at them too.
It is incredible how people in the Arsenal Board hide, only to leave the manager to take all the blame. It really feels like nobody really cares about this football club at the top, and it’s difficult to find evidence that things stand otherwise.
We should most definitely be talking to someone. I sometimes wonder what difference would it make if I’m the manager. Surely I will do not much worse as we can’t win a game of football anyway. I would even do it for half of Emery’s wages, and at least I’d know I am the problem and I’d have the nobility to leave when things are not going our way.
The only reason I can think of to not sack the manager is the lack of desire to hire someone new. There are too many people in the Arsenal Board who do not do their jobs. This goes from the top to the bottom. Is it because Raul asked for money to support Unai that he is now afraid that he’ll have to go and tell the owner we need a new manager and more money?
Job security after bad decision? I have a prime example from the place where I work. The company isn’t delivering and there are a few people who are the real reason, but just like the manager at Arsenal, they are untouchable and job security makes them a nightmare to work with.
Whatever the real issue is, I don’t rely on our owner to make a bold decision as he is again nowhere to be seen. How do you manage an entity as big as Arsenal football club without even bothering to attend from time to time?
Not sure he even knows what our league position is. Not sure he even cares. There are empty seats at the Emirates. People are bored watching the club. We cannot celebrate having the lead as we are not sure we can keep it. Going away we know we are beaten. How can you support this?
The banners need to come out. I am sorry, I don’t see another way. We will throw away another year into the abyss for the sake of the Arsenal Board not having the reputation to sack managers often, even if they are crashing us to the ground. I hope this nightmare will end soon, but it could take a while.
