How refreshing Emery is. For ages I have failed to understand why we didn't press and the players looked lazy at times.
I will always find Wenger an enigma, The first half of his time at the club, was so different to the second half, which was only saved by CL qualification in all bar the final 2 seasons and winning 3 FA Cup finals.
Wenger was a contradiction, allowing players in many respects freedom to express themselves, but with many constraints.
The thing that astounds me is that Wenger is now saying the club lost patience. Did he truly belive we were heading in the right direction? Fortunately, the current squad still has some talent that can be improved by Emery and he will no doubt sell some players and bring in players.
Wenger has also been piping up about how we nearly signed Ronaldo, Messi, etc. This is irrelevant, under Wenger we actually sold players in their prime such as; Henry, Vieira, Van Persie, Sanchez, Oxlade, Nasri, etc. He also stated that Real Madrid made attempts to instal him as manager. When? Over a decade ago?
I appreciate many aspects of what Wenger did for the club and during his time we built new training facillities, a new stadium, won trophies, etc. However, post-2006 after Dein and Fiszman had departed I never truly believed in Wenger and his methods anymore and I'm pleased his time has ended and whatever it brings, I am looking forward to next season under Emery.

From what I've read Emery works really hard and expects the same from his players, obviously this will be difficult for some of our players because they became used to a much more relaxed cosy way of life.
I think we will quickly see improvement in terms of commitment paston desire on match days simply by reintroducing physical contact into our training, for some reason Arsene didn't allow the players to tackle each other in training and this lead to our soft Arsenal image where people knew they could bully us our games quite easily.
I think Emery will find lots of little things he can change that will add up to a big difference even before we start spending.

I agree that Emery will get more out of the players that are willing to go along with his methods, others will be moved on.
Cech will get a new lease of life under Emery, with an organised defence and a midfield that will protect the defence.
New signings are reported to be negotiated at present and I would expect at least 3 or 4 before the season starts.

I think we also have to be open to giving a second chance to those players Emery decides to keep even though most of us wouldn't be unhappy to see leave.
Players like Xhaka Iwobi Mustafi could in my opinion leave without even being replaced with new signings and we'd still be a better team without them in it but under Emery maybe some or even all 3 of those players will make me think differently about them this time next year.

You should be excited R. G. as you've hired a top Europa league manager for a Europa league club, he's also been waved off at psg as he spent billions and couldn't get close to winning the champions league and was also sacked at Moscow.

Raver I can see where your coming from mate, get in now before normal service is resumed and I can't fault your plan.
When Emery was announced your heart must have sank as just for a moment a mere wrinkle in time you had the hope of us appointmenting Artetta and with that would have come the possibility of you remaining on the sunny side of the street, but now! You realise your time to fall gracefully back into the shadows is once again about to come, don't be sad my friend at least you had two seasons of sunshine on your face and that's not to be scoffed at when your a spud mate.

His interview, I prefer to win 5-4 than to win 1-0. Mustafi is going nowhere then.
Wenger gave him some good advice,
Feed gunnersaurus twice a day and take lacazete off in the 70th minute😀😀😀.

Raver61 - Emery and Pochettino are the same age. Emery has won 8 trophies as a manager and Pochettino has won 0. Pochettino, an expert in failure is perfect for trophyless Toot. 1961 and waiting. Fast approaching 60 years of abject failure.

Arsene also warned him that if he was to want to study United prior to playing them not to waste his time watching lots and lots of videos of their games because if you've seen one you've seen them all :-)
He also advised him if was going to put himself through that discomfort watching in bed was the best place to do it :-)

Alright boys, best of luck with the new manager, I will call him dick.
Here's a few things about dick
His last season at Sevilla he didn't win a single away game.
Now how is he going to manage going from spending 200mil. On neymar to relying on the fitness of iwobi 😀😀😀😀.

You had a bump on the head Leahy and somehow forgot Mourinho’s still your manager.

Hi 12, i will tell you a few things about your manager. Shall we call him dick because that's what he is. Oh and at least most of our fans want our manager. Good luck trying to catch your better neighbours, who are better and guess what, most of their fans want their manager too.

It must be difficult for you 12 mate, under Fergie you were THE team to beat every season that no one could move as the dominant force of English football where as now it seems no one can make you credible.
3 managers and so many millions later and you are still the team no one wants to watch and everyone likes to laugh at.
Liverpool are in the champions league final, Spurs are moving into thier new stadium, City are the new dominant force of the premier league Chelsea as everyone knows will be back in contention next season and now even Arsenal are changing but for United? There seems absolutely no way forward, more managers more money I'm sure will come and go but entertainment and competitiveness remain strangers at the theatre of memories.

Really excited by our new manager :

'I think the history here is a team who loves playing with possession of the ball. 'I like this personality, I like playing with the ball, if you don't have possession, I want a squad who are very, very intensive with pressing.

Sounds like he did a fantastic interview a few weeks ago, super detailed on every squad player and how he will develop them. Also discussed academy players in details. Pulled up videos etc.

Bloody awesome!

Only concern was Arsenal's lack of budget and expectation for next season as they haven't defined their targets yet. Just improve on last year.

Anyway - super excited and hopeful for the future.

I agree sy4. Although I do feel there will be a budget and potentially higher than in previous summers. I feel a few will be moved on or swapped etc. I expect 5-6 players maybe a few top names amongst them.

Agree about manager Sy but surely we would have to be verifiable to announce we have 100 200 or 300 million to spend . Oh they have that to spend jack up the price . No one had a clue who the new manager was going to be despite many claiming done deal etc and I for one am happy for the club to do deals on the quiet ( won't stop me being impatient and watching Eds doing there thing during transfer window ) . Only been in a day and someone in the know has announced we are off to Germany 🇩🇪 to sign three or for players Jeez! I think you will find we do things better and quieter and let's hope Benzema / Higuain / Artetttta gate are the thing of the past COYG.

Have you guys seen the Welcome Unai Emery video on Arsenal Twitter. They were showing Arsenal's great managers and Wenger wasn't in there.

Makes me wonder is it a cheeky dig by Gazidas or an error from club's marketing department.

23 May 2018 20:39:28
It has to be one or the other. Preferably an error but still very shocking if so.

23 May 2018 21:44:37
I wouldn't have thought it was a dig because Gazidas was very big on Arsene having a fantastic send off.

Gazidis has wanted him gone for years. Wasn't easy but shuffling the pack slowing behind him helped.

With Enery done and everyone, i'm assuming, happy to move on, what are our player targets now? I've been told not to listen to the 'Only £50M' spiel, but, i wonder if we'll sell numerous players to make our budget bigger if this is true. Very interested for the future.

Ed025, if it were up to me, you'd have a statue outside the Emirates.

Raver, run along old chap. Last thing we want is you sitting in your ma's living room, in your pretty skirt, crying your fake lashes away.

Jimmy, I got the dvd but I'm positive stoner is still clueless about 67. I think you should take some time and tell him all about it. You two could swap phone numbers and you can talk and he can pretend to understand what you're saying.

{Ed025's Note - that would be quite fitting sharpy...as most bird i have known have crapped on me mate.. :)

Exciting appointment of a proven winner in his mid-40's. Wenger will be a hard act to follow, but I believe the fans needed the excitement of a new manager, new methods, new tactics and players.
We have the basis of a decent team and at least 3 quality signings are needed:
A Keeper: Leno?
A CB: Papastathopoulos?
A Defensive Midfield player: Seri?

No chance they’re in on Seri. Would be a waste of resources the money that they’d use on him would be so much better served shoring up defensive deficiencies in midfield, centre half, keeper.
