Extremely worrying times at the club:
Reports:
Leno - Bayern interested
Bellerin - 2 Italian clubs interested
Mustafi - Club want to sell
Torreira - Unhappy and Italian interest
Xhaka - wants out? Club want to sell?
Ceballos - Loan ends at end of season
Ozil - club want to sell or loan
Aubameyang - Contract expires 2021

We should have taken the opportunity to change manager at the start of the International break.

Lampard came in and within weeks Hudson Od signed and said it took one chat. Emery is the opposite and is repealing players, however one hungry manager that the players can get behind could change so much. Today it seems the best managers are the ones the Players can get on with on a personal level.

I think it's really important that players trust and respect what their manger does and how he does it.
Once the players stop believing they're manager knows what he's doing its virtually impossible to win them back over. I would imagine it's Just like any other place of work where players talk amount themselves and feed each others dissatisfaction and if allowed to go on to long before you know everyone is looking at their options and looking to get away, those with no chance of getting their wages matched elsewhere will be the most likely to sta but they will be staying for all the wrong reasons unfortunately.

Ed, you said Emery wasn’t our first choice. Do you have any idea who our targets/ options may be if they’re forced to part ways with The tactical genius that is Emery.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously things have moved on since he was appointed and right now he is the coach. A couple of coaches will lose their jobs before him and maybe they will be in the thoughts. Right now it makes little point in discussing detail.}

Hello Ed002, wanted to ask if arsenal have a list of targets for January/ summer?

{Ed002's Note - They are continuing to consider the likes of Cole Bassett (CM) Bilel Hassaini (RW) and Aleksandr Sobolev (S) who makes little sense.}

I'm not sure what singing any new players would achieve as we stand.
Save whatever money might be available until the summer when the management situation will be sorted one way or the other.
Seems to me the more players we sign the worse we get since Sven left.

I'm not sure if Emery can't or won't change his ways but either way it's plainly obvious his ways his methods his tactics just aren't working at premier league level.
What would be the point in continuing with Emery few more games or weeks! What is going to suddenly start working that hasn't worked upto this point in time?
9 points over 26 games isn't impossible to make up but neither will it be a formality for a new manager either.

There are absolutely no guarantees that if we change managers things will suddenly come good but there is a genuine possibility they might under a different manager that simply doesn't exist under Emery.

We have a squad that has the quality in abundance we just need someone who can organise and motivate them into a cohesive team that functions to its full potential.
There is no logical reason to carry on with Emery, I've read people saying the club don't want to pay his compensation money and would rather let him see out his contact to save what a £3 millions pay off?

But that's just people being negative towards the board because I'm sure Josh and Co are more than capable of working out the financial loss of champions league football money v £3 million in compensation without the need to consult the world's greatest mathematic brains first.

As usual, nothing to disagree with from G62. I have little faith in the board to act decisively. They have a history of dithering and fiddling while the team burns on the pitch. As you said elsewhere, the only language they understand is empty terracing. I would rather listen to us lose on the radio, than freeze my arse off sitting at the Emirates.

I would love to be wrong, but those hoping for a sacking on Monday. I wouldn't hold my breath.

Hi Urban mate I think you've got it bang on, vote with you bum if your not happy and spend your time doing something that does make you happy until the club team and manager give you reason to feel they are your best way of spending your time and money again.

I just don’t know how emery is making Managing Arsenal look like a difficult job? This season I honestly couldn’t tell you what system we’re playing. Yes Wenger was dated, but you knew what you was getting. A team trying to play possession football until an opening presented itself. Against Leicester, we couldn’t even string 5 passes together. No one knew where each other are, we got strikers playing like wingers, playing so deep against a team that plays with 1 striker. Emery isn’t connected to his players and he’s not connected to the fans. Sack this tactical fraud, leave Freddie in charge til we can get a manager with a clear vision.

It's true ice mate we have no identity no structure no Arsenal way of playing that the players can get they're heads around and become comfortable with and most importantly good at.
Every game a different starting 11 a different game plan a different formation what chance do our players have? And of course they are only human so are naturally becoming deflated and losing interest and motivation to simply indulge yet more nonsense.

Icy, you are so right. It was embarrassing watching us play what amounted to a back five against a side with a lone striker. And Gunner, spot on about identity, we don't have one at all. We even had one under Graham, albeit based on grinding opponents down and a very flat back four with their hands up every five minutes. I watched Liverpool yesterday afternoon, and even with some (one) lucky breaks, they looked every bit the finished article where we look pedestrian. The worst of it is, our front three/ four are the measure of anything Liverpool have got. But the rest is disorganised, poorly deployed, and yes, lacking any kind of identity.

The papers (I know) are this morning reporting the boards confidence in Emery. If true, I'm not surprised. Of course, we don't want a trigger happy board, but one season, and a third of this one, is enough to know. It could be a long frustrating season.

In a game that’s about numbers and statistics, I’d be curious to know which one Emery is impressing in, that’s keeping him in that seat.
Ed any inside news on what’s happening? I just can’t accept the board are content with him because under him, Speaking statistically, we won’t challenge top 4 and we don’t want to bank winning Europe when we can’t hold a clean sheet.

{Ed002's Note - It was a mistake brining him in and as I said he was far from first choice. The club has gambled financially on getting in to the top four come the end of the season, and that remains the primary target. It is difficult to see anything happening before the summer when I suspect there might well be a change.}

The papers are all quoting Ormstein Urban mate so it's a highly credible that is the boards position.
I'm pinning my hopes on the board using Ormstein as a deflection tactic and going to surprise us all as they did when they let the papers run with the "we only had 40 million to spend" story all last summer then bosh! broke our transfer record :-) I know it's not a theory you'd want to put your house on being correct is it :-) ?
Like you said yesterday mate vote with your bum and if your not happy with what's being offered simply don't accept it and find a more enjoyable way of spending your time and money, 20,000 empty seats is an extremely difficult fans message to ignore for long.

Ed001 you were the first one who told me Emery will sign for Arsenal, do you think he will get sacked?

{Ed001's Note - he will certainly not be there much longer. The only thing I can see which will keep him there past this international break is the issue of finding a replacement. Mind, there is still Wenger available.....}

10 Nov 2019 08:25:19
Thankyou for the response ed, do you have any insight on the sort of replacements we are after? Is Freddie an option? Thanks again.

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry you are misunderstanding, that is probably my fault as I realise I put it in the wrong page. I was giving an opinion, that finding a replacement would be the only thing that could save Emery now. I don't know of any search having begun for one yet. I will ask now but it is Sunday and most people I know are likely to be sleeping for a while yet!}

It's not your fault ed, we are just too hopeful that the sack Should come any moment now, maybe Monday who knows! Please keep us updated with any information you get, thanks for all your Amazing work eds! Praying that this ends now.

{Ed001's Note - I will let you know if I hear anything back.}

If the board have not been actively, or even furtively, seeking a replacement, the chances are that Emery will not be going anytime soon. This board has a track record of dithering in all its dealings, so I don't expect a decisive mindset to overtake them now.

I won't be surprised if Emery is still there at the end of the season, as bizarre as that sounds.

Ed do you know if Man Utd are targeting pea David ornstien has tweeted they are watching him.

{Ed002's Note - There was some interest in Aubameyangadingdong when Jose Mourinho was coach but the club opted for Lukaku - that would have been 2017. Now they have other targets in mind and I am not aware that they are looking at him again.}

What does everyone think of the pictures / rumours regarding Mourinho?

I would love serial trophy winner Mourinho at the club. With the squad we now have he would be a great choice to restore CL football and trophies to the club.
Although, as I have stated previously Emery improved us in his first season and should be given a chance until the end of the season to see how we progress with the three long term injured defenders and Lacazette back, as well as bedding in the new players.

Tbf, iv only seen it on twitter, but he was pictured in executive section at the Emirates, aparently sat with Sanllehi.

Although i just think the guy was there to watch football, as he lives in London and i doubt he is welcome at the bridge.

I don't think he would be a bad till the end of the season replacement if the club were to sack Emery, however, I wouldn’t give him any longer than that, and doubt he would want any longer than that with how much money he likes to spend.
Anyhow, i just thought i would get peoples opinion on him.

And no G62 it wasn’t sky.

No its on the metro express and all other well known mischief makers and truth inventors 93 mate :-) 1% facts twisted into 0.0000000% truth :-)
No credible outlast is claiming it to be anything more than what it was which is why they are and remaind credible even though less rich than those who see truth as an inconvenience.

This rumour is likely to be utter bull. That said, JoMo is the last man on earth I would want in charge of Arsenal.

Personally I don't know what we are meant to do here. I like Rafa Benitez though - and he is available.

{Ed047's Note - after the mess he’s left behind in his previous two roles he’s clearly past his sell by date and plays outdated football.

Why would people want that here 🤷‍♂️

Any chance we could pry Brendan Rodgers away from Leicester City.

We have a more than reasonable squad and a level headed reasonably good manager could quite easily to come in and turn things around very quickly and give us more than decent chance of top 4 finish.
We don't need Pep or Jurgen to turn this squad into champions league qualifiers we just need someone who knows what he's doing and is happy for the players to make headlines and be the stars of the show.
Titles? Then we would need a Jurgen or Pep type manager but we are not yet ready for that level of competitiveness only to begin the journey towards it again.

Why would Rodgers leave a better club to come to us.

29 Oct 2019 21:43:02
I think he would love the arsenal job! Would I want him? Probably not, like with United the style change would not appease fans, would he do a better job than emery I would say yes, . Mourinho has that attitude of a bloke who wants to shag someone else’s wife better.

Would anyone else wantEddie Howe? He’s a manager who has a game plan, sticks to it, moves clubs the right way up the leagues/ tables.

{Ed047's Note - not anywhere near good enough for me.

The fact that Emery is in a weak position, esp. in the minds of fans, it's no surprise that every Tom Tick and Harry will be linked with us. Mourinho just happens to be a free agent at the moment which makes it an inevitability he will be highlighted. Don't be surprised to see Allegri and Rodgers, amongst others flagged up in the coming weeks, if fortunes do not change.

I usually would not expect Arsenal to get rid of Emery until the end of the season, it's not been the clubs DNA to do that unless corruption/ illegality is implied. Having said that, I would not be surprised if the genetic make up at the club has sufficiently changed to see a swifter exit. I can't see this happening if there is no obvious replacement.

Two years ago I would have baulked at the idea of Mourinho, but I fear I could be persuaded in the midst of the defensive and organisational chaos in the team.

Strange times.

I'm not sure about Eddie Howe, but we don't really know what he is capable of at a bigger club with better players. He can't be any worse than Emery surely; we gave him a job?

Nothings going to happen to Emery anytime soon. I’d be keeping an eye on Enrique who was doing good with Spain before having to step away for personal reasons. He’s the type of manager who could at least get us back to playing football.

Mourinho - too big a risk. Expensive gamble.
Eddie Howe - not high profile enough

Pep and klopp people like. We need a manager the fans and the public can get behind.

What about Rafa? Premier league experience, can organise a defense and has won trophies.

04 Nov 2019 12:50:53
Ed, what’s your opinion on the whole manager front with Arsenal. If this form doesn’t improve soon, how long would you expect Emery to remain, and do you think with what you know, if sacked, do you think they’d look for a profile or maybe stick with Freddie?

{Ed002's Note - The problem is largely with the structure of the club and in the big scheme of things the improvements that one might expect with the change of a coach will be constrained by that. Hence the problem getting a Technical Director and ending up with Edu, who was way down the list, this past summer.}

Just read that Ceballos has met up with Perez, of Real, as he wishes to join Arsenal permanently. The reported fee is £35m, which would be a bargain for a talented player such as he is. Fingers crossed.

You just made that up. Lol. He’s a Spanish international, who’s preference is to stay at Madrid whom is young and as you said talented. Real are if not the biggest club in the world. 35 million. Lol. Wake up.

21 Oct 2019 05:55:00
It was a report I read, not made up. Real having spent heavily in the summer will need to recoup some funds in order to try to sign Pogba. Clearly Zidane doesn’t rate Ceballos or he would have kept him at the club.
