    he is mainly ridiculed for being a bad manager. No point playing the sympathy card.

    Says more about the cupcake media we have now. What's wrong with mocking someone? Hire a translator like every other manager who isn't proficient in the language.
    Manuel Pellegrini knew the language already when he came to England yet still used a translator in his first season with city at least in training sessions.
    & btw if he was a good manager nobody would mock him, he's just too crap at too many things not to be mocked.

    it's the whole society thing that went to ****.
    If Emery was doing miracles here, people would still make fun of his English but everyone would find it cool in that scenario. Now they will just make a story about it cause media loves such things, and there is a good chance Club/Unai himself will ise it to help them in these hard times.

    People are so spineless today it got off proportions. Everyone's offended by everything, and the worst part is they are winning that game.

    So the only real positive of the last months, a good climate within the team, is now worse than ever as well - great.

    This is probably the lowest point we've come to since I can remember.

    Hopefully the conflict can be a good thing & results in change. It was weird how happy the group seemed yet managers being let go & under huge pressure. The inability to win away the last 24 months screams of a weak group.

    This league is incredibly tight. Between Arsenal 6th and Everton 15th there's only 3 points. With United and Sp**s in there too. Most unusual.

    Over the Xmas period this will sort itself out with a rush of games. Do badly over that period and you'll find yourself 3/4 of the way down the table, or up under the leaders.

    There's a cliff face in front of all those teams.

    did anyone watch The Debate on Sky Sports yesterday? Paul Merson and some other bloke I didn't know were of the opinion that Emery has been given a period of grace because our fixtures up to the end of the year are winnable - but if we make a hash of them he is definately gone

    James Gunnerblog has a good piece on The Athletic

    Few excerpts:

    Arsenal fans are used to waiting for change. But allowing Emery to persist will be interpreted as passively accepting mediocrity


    Perhaps they could learn something from their opponents. Leicester parted ways with the cautious Claude Puel midway through last season and have been revitalised by Brendan Rodgers’ bold managerial approach. Decisive action has reaped immediate rewards.

    Arsenal insist that Emery’s job is not in imminent danger and his post-match demeanour was that of a manager who feels surprisingly assured of his position. The Arsenal hierarchy insist that they don’t want to instigate a carousel of coaches and become another Manchester United. However, United’s failure wasn’t in sacking David Moyes, or Louis van Gaal, or even Jose Mourinho. It was in failing to follow up those decisions with the right appointment. It is not good enough to put off sacking a coach just because you’re scared you might not get the next appointment right.


    After all, the former Barcelona executive now has something to lose. Sanllehi, in particular, emerged from the summer transfer window with considerable credit but that will soon disappear if he keeps faith in his countryman. You didn’t need to be Spanish to understand the cries of “Ole!” from the Leicester crowd in the game’s final moments. This was a comprehensive beating delivered by a Leicester team who look increasingly difficult to catch.


    It was necessary. This match saw Brendan Rodgers’s side join Chelsea nine points ahead of Arsenal in the race for the top four. It is a gulf of historic proportions: the biggest gap between the top four and the chasing pack at this stage of a Premier League season since 2001. This is now Arsenal’s worst start to a league season since 1982, 37 years ago. Arsenal finished that season in 10th.

    And now the bad news: this is the easy bit. Arsenal are in the midst of a relatively friendly run of fixtures. In between December 15th and New Year’s Day, Arsenal host Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, as well as facing trips to Everton and Bournemouth. If Emery stays, it is going to get worse.

    Sanllehi needs to recognise that, or the man dubbed ‘Don Raul’ will be swiftly rebranded a dunce. Sacking Emery and his staff and appointing alternatives might be expensive — but failing to get back into the Champions League would surely be more costly.


    For the first time in this Premier League campaign, Emery reverted to the back three that he used for much of last season. Given a back four was one of the few discernible elements of the identity Emery was attempting to implement, this was a move with more than a whiff of desperation to it. Emery resembles a frantic gambler, endlessly pulling the slot machine’s lever, hoping he might eventually land upon a winning combination.


    This was a game Emery couldn’t afford to lose, but not one it felt like he had the gumption to try and win. Wenger sometimes said his teams played with the “handbrake on”. At the moment, Emery looks like he’d struggle to make it through the theory test.

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette played as split strikers on Saturday, and were detailed to pin back Leicester’s attacking full-backs Ben Chilwell and Ricardo Pereira. It almost worked, for a period in the first half. However, is that really the best use of two £50 million forwards?

    Throw in Nicolas Pepe, and Arsenal have a potentially fantastic front line, if Emery was prepared throw caution to the wind and lean into their strengths. Instead, he’s almost apologetic about his embarrassment of attacking riches. Arsenal are the team with the £170 million attack, and the minus-one goal difference.

    Ultimately, the first goal decided this game. In their previous four matches, Arsenal had suffered the embarrassment of surrendering a lead. Well, if you thought Arsenal were bad when they were in front, welcome to Arsenal when they’re behind. Emery’s team didn’t manage a shot after the 53rd minute. In that time, Leicester had eight attempts at goal.

    There is an expression Emery makes when things go against him, that is becoming all too familiar. A sort of painful grimace that pulls his mouth wide, baring his teeth. If only his team could do the same.

    One of the stranger aspects of the evening was the fact that between Leicester’s goals there was a seven-minute period where Emery showed no sign of making a substitution, despite Pepe’s presence on the bench. It was a familiar feeling for Arsenal fans: waiting for a change that doesn’t come.

    It’s now down to Sanllehi, Edu and KSE to deliver one. The intervention of the owners could prove crucial here. They just about saw off the #WeCareDoYou rebellion with smart talking and transfers. That has earned the Arsenal board a modicum of trust.

    However, the way things are going is not a good look for them, and if they allow Emery to persist, it will be interpreted as passively accepting mediocrity.

    That bond of trust is more delicate than ever. If they really cared about Arsenal, they would not allow this to continue.

    Emery is over here earning millions and he can't even communicate properly with players or fans. How can that be right?

    If he can't communicate he shouldn't have been given the job, or he should have a translator with him at all times. What we have now is nothing but a joke.

    Quite honestly I don't even bother with his pressers anymore and Arsène's philosophical and witty outpourings were the highlight of my day. This has nothing to do with foreign managers.

    So he's still here?

    Didn't watch us against Leicester but looking at the stats, it's yet another performance worthy of a team fighting relegation. 19 to 8 shots ffs.

    What a disgrace this club is, we've accepted sh!tness and let an outdated joker lead it into a comedy within record time.

    We cannot leave this too late, we've got to get rid of him sooner rather then later. If you look at the PL table, it is very tight this year in the middle. A few draws in these fixtures could put us way back in the relegation zone, that's what I'm getting concerned about now.
