Board remains 100% behind Unai Emery and will ignore the noise from the fans.
If Arsenal fans thought that the loss to Leicester City last night would see the end of the manager then they are sorely mistaken.
David Ornstein, who is recognised as a very reliable person on inside information at Arsenal, has tweeted the following;
Arsenal bosses “100%” behind Unai Emery, deny considering change or talking to candidates, plan to review in summer. Kroenkes + execs offering full support, won’t react to “noise”, feel results will improve atmos & think #AFC on right path. @TheAthleticUK: https://t.co/rXXrMAtd9a

Now, Ornstein very rarely gets it wrong and his reputation precedes him, so we can assume what he has tweeted is probably very close to the truth.
This leaves a very unenviable choice for Arsenal fans to make.
Do they make a bad season worse by booing the manager? Do they ratchet up the pressure with Emery out banners and undermine the team?
There are more questions like that but I am sure you get the gist of what I am asking.
If the club are sticking to their guns no matter what then there is nothing to gain by campaigning for Emery to go. The board will not be changing their minds it seems.
It seems to me that we, as fans, have no choice but to accept the situation for what it is.
The fact that the board will reevaluate the situation at the end of the season tells you that they will fire the Spaniard if Arsenal fails to make top-four. That is my reading of it anyway.
So, it is now a waiting game. Once Emery fails then he is gone. If he does not then all good, means he has succeeded.
It may not be what the fans want to hear but this is it, this is what we have to live with. This season is now likely a busted flush. Fighting against that just makes the whole situation a lot worse.
