    Sorry, I was more addressing that you said “100 shots at our goal”, which to me implies that they were 100 shots on goal. It was 100 shots in general, whether it was on our goal or a barn wall wide. I feel people are thinking that stat is on goal. Some part of defensive strategy can be forcing the opponent to take low percentage shots which rarely end up on goal. Again, Watford created 2 quality chances and scored 2 goals on errors out of 31 shots and 10 shots on goal.

    Not sure if people remember, but Watford beat us on both occasions in 2017.

    In general people are being knee jerk. I agree that Emery is struggling to define an identity which is a necessary trait of a top manager. His identity is basically having a flexible team and adjusting to the opposition, which has lead to inconsistent team performance and maybe some on field cluelessness. Criticism is warrant, but calling for sacking is an embarrassment. Part of it comes from not achieving champions league last season after getting so close. Even though, nearly everyone in the beginning season poll only wanted us to maintain stability and expected 2019/2020 to be when we achieve champions league. Early success changed that target for many who forget how difficult consistency is for any team. Emery did ok for his first season at arsenal. If he doesn’t get champions league this season, agreed to sack.

    I think people just have strong polar opinions to make it look like they know what they are talking about or they have higher standards because they know more. As I’ve said, Emery may not be the man, but I’ll have patience and support the team in the meantime.

    To keep his job he needs to start playing better football.

    Not expecting top4 this season. But if we don't start to see better football. Better performances we will be chasing next season too.

    Win or not, I have no idea what he's thinking with this dreadful lineup. The one player we shouldn't risk is starting, we have the most awful back four imaginable, he's literally picked the worse possible one. Less said about the midfield, the better.

    Getting into the top four isn’t enough.

    Not surprised. I remember us creating quite a number of good chances*, but failing to score. Wish Wenger had gone for PEA earlier instead of persisting with Giroud. Shat the pants against top teams, but should have put a lot of smaller teams to the sword with the chances we were creating.

    *But nowhere near earlier Wenger teams.

    Top four may not signify progress, so I agree. Fwiw, I feel we progressed last season on the season before. It’s about progress. League position doesn’t always give you the best clue as to whether you’ve got the right man at the helm.

    OK.....Those are mostly his players though (except Xhaka).
    In any case, this is his team now. He has the season to prove he is up to the task.

    Extend his contract if we make top 4? That’s a big commitment.

    Would say he’s shown enough to suggest he isn’t the right man, no matter what happens now.

    Great win, in spite of his tactics. Individual talent shone through.

    24 shots by Frankfurt is worrying.

    I can't believe people saying top 4 should be enough for him to keep the job. Utd and Chelsea are really poor squads and we should be comfortably finish 4th. If we are looking like we aren't gonna finish 4th. then he should be sacked mid season. End of season, if we finish 3rd or we get 4th + a trophy (Europa or Fa Cup) at least, then maybe he can continue. With his contract ending, we should happily let him go even if we just get only 4th with a real poor style of football as we won't lose any money.

    I personally don't want to see his style of football unless we show real progress.

    He should go no matter what, his football is dreadful. Not point beating around the bush.
