Arsenal board come under fire from the fans following developments elsewhere.
The pressure on Unai Emery could not have increased anymore really. I mean, Arsenal fans are calling for his head in massive numbers already.
But the same cannot be said about the Arsenal board. The pressure on them has been fairly limited but not no more.
What Tottenham have done over the last 24 hours, sacking Mauricio Pochettino and hiring Jose Mourinho has put into focus the dithering at board level at Arsenal.
I have seen numerous Youtube videos from Arsenal fans saying Spurs are now acting like a big club. That they will finish above Arsenal this season and so on.
That is the domino effect of what that lot have done.
Some Arsenal fans are angry that Emery is still in a job when other clubs act far faster, Bayern Munich and Tottenham being the classic examples. Some fans are also unhappy that Arsenal has missed out on Mourinho.
Now, I am not saying I agree or disagree with these positions, I am just reporting the reaction from Arsenal fans freely available on social media and Youtube.
In my opinion, the fans will turn their anger away from Emery and put it on the board. It is they that have insisted the Spaniard remains in his position. It is they that have blown the opportunity to land at least two high profile replacements in Jose Mourinho and Luis Enrique.
A bad performance against Southampton and I expect the board will come into the crosshairs of the fans.
If that happens, then maybe the board will act but don’t hold your breath.
