I will add to this line of unpopularity, Emery would have turned it around at Arsenal. Not saying top 4 but better position than teta especially if he had been backed the same way. We were playing the worse football of all time under teta and even he saw some upswing after Christmas.I believe that Unai Emery was not given enough time at Arsenal. He Won Europa Leagues with Sevilla before coming to Arsenal. He took over from Wenger, like Moyes took over from Ferguson. (New manager taking over from a long serving one).
Now manager of Villarreal, he beat us in last seasons Europa League Semi Final. Then beat Man Utd in the Final. A multiple Europa League Winner.
I believe that Alex Manninger should have been the next first choice goalkeeper. I know that David Seaman was in front of him. Would have tried to involve Alex in more games. When Alex played, he kept 6 clean sheets in a row, and did well in a penalty shoot out away at West Ham United.
I think that Alex was the best backup goalkeeper signed by Arsène Wenger. Having signed the likes of Richard Wright, Mart Poom etc.
Bamford shouldve been at the euro's and not DCL
I'd gone for Warkins over DCL. I haven't watched anywhere near the amount Everton matches I used to (I have soft spot for them as half my Family are Toffee supporters). I was surprised to learn that they don't rate them to highly.
They tell me unless it on a platter for DCL or a set piece then he's a very limited and frustrating player. Compare that to Watkins who is able to take people on and beat people etc.
