But Allegri would get them organized far better than what Emery can muster

More smoke today about Allegri. Can anybody explain exactly why he left Juve, and why he is not doing anything right now? Seems odd

Basically both parties wanted a split. Allegri wanted a new challenge and had complaints about recruitment. Juventus wanted to do better in the CL , players were tired of his methods and fans wanted a better style of play

Thx - seeing 4 straight league titles, and a CL final among other things, you would think everyone would be happy.

The team has given away 71 shots in the last 3 games.   I believe bottom of the table Watford had 31 shots against the team, and gifted Southampton 21 shots when I believe they managed 6 shots in their last three games before that put together.  It's a shambles.

I think the club will go back in for a new central defender in January, (providing they have the funds) they bid for Upamecano before and are linked with guys like Dermiral. However, they need to get the structure & mix in midfield right, they could have Baresi & Maldini in defence & they'd still struggle with the space the opposition have to run at the defence.,

It's a big summer with regards Auba & perhaps Lacazette. Auba is out of contract the summer of 2021, but if he doesnt sign an extension he needs to leave, we can't let another big player run down his contract. I like both players but i dont think anyone we currently have is irreplaceable.

I'm not sure it is.  Look at Leicester City, they don't have any player near Auba or Laca, they have a 34 year old Vardy who is putting in work, making runs and knows he has the team behind him to back him up.  Liverpool went into the wilderness for years and averaged 7th place in the PL from 2008 to 2013, Leicester sacked Ranieri after his PL win - same with Mourinho (twice) at Chelsea.  The end of the day the club need to salvage the season, there are enough decent players to still secure top 4 but they need to do it sooner rather than later. 

Emery doesn't have them playing as a team - they were mind you, for a bit last season - but they've clearly had yet another mental collapse after the Europa final, with the constant behind the scenes drama with Ozil and Xhaka hardly helping him.  I thought it was Neymar's doing at PSG in the drama created there, but it is starting to look like a trend.

Honestly though it's quite funny in a way.  It's like watching a slow motion car crash and not being able to look away.  Some of the ex-players like Adams and Wright seem exasperated at the basics the team can't manage.    Would be nice to see Emery gone before the Xmas fixtures since they're so many of them, a manager bounce could be useful - but if the club goes into January with the same manager why would any new player want to sign for an unstable team with a gaffer who is practically out of the door.  Robbie should be rubbing his hands together over at AFTV  ;D

Arsenal could be a great project for Rafa. They have at least some financial muscle, internally they seem to need a bit of an overhaul but that's what he does, they're a mess defensively which he would improve immensely you'd expect and he'd get plenty of time.

Rafa had to suffer under the Tumors shredding our club. He fought hard for us. Then he had to suffer under Mike Ashley who never won over their fans (granted, his influence has two sides). He fought hard for their fans. It's energy sapping. Why would Rafa even consider going to Arsenal in the current state of affairs? He needs a good job, which Arsenal is, but he does not need the shit show that comes with it.

He needs a good job, which Arsenal is, but he does not need the shit show that comes with it.

I don't quite get this narrative that seems to be getting painted of the Arsenal ownership / structure.

We are owned by Stan Kronke. Its true, he's not pumped millions of his own money into Arsenal, and he is known as an absent owner, but hes picked a management team to run the club as they see fit, overseen by his son Josh who is becoming more involved. Surely the fact the owner doesn't get himself involved in the day to day stuff is an attraction to a top class manager, rather than a hindrance?

As for the management structure, it's Sanhelli, Vinai, and Edu's first full year in their current roles. You can see they already working to a plan, getting talented, younger players and edging out some of the older, more well paid players, and trying to get a more balance within the squad. It's a fair amount of turnover that was never going to happen in 1 year.

Im just not seeing the shambles supposedly from the full owner / management structure that many are claiming. I don't see why any top class manager / coach wouldn't fancy themselves to turn things around.

First off, no offense, mate. I have respect for Arsenal. You're going through a tough patch, but what club doesn't have those...

I'm not claiming anything on the internal structure, mate, because I know fuck all about it. But you have to admit that the dealings in the last several years have not been up to prior standards. The people brought in before were selected with a vision, brought in young and developed and gelled in the side. Of late, it seems (on the outside) as a patch job. I have no clue if this was a consequence or a reaction of Usmanov leaving, Kroenke becoming a sole owner or what, but something seems off. A lot of key players contracts were allowed to run down. The new players are over their peaks or don't quite fitting the style. Which is I don't know what under Emery. The club is losing value. That to me, again without knowing any of the internal affairs, seems as a club structure issue. Sure, you can tweak things, bring new people to fix it, and you will as Arsenal is a big club and I'm sure it will recover. But you need someone to buy into the model, the path to recover, the new club philosophy, the goals. And for Rafa, being burned twice already with not to dissimilar issues, I don't see a path forward.

It's really not that complicated.

If the new manager is supported with the money and strong scouting networks to get the right players in, it's a great project. If not, it's not.

I don't think Arsenal's too far away from starting to turn it around. The first step is to make sure they get the right long-term manager in, and I think in that context they're doing the right thing to hold off on sacking Emery until they can be assured of getting their preferred candidate.

Then, it's a matter of gradually getting the right players/staff in over the course of years, as we have. It's not going to be easy, but by the time Jurgen (unless we can persuade him otherwise) and Guardiola leave Liverpool and City in 2-3 years, they might be in a decent place to challenge again.

It's not going to be easy, but by the time Jurgen (unless we can persuade him otherwise) and Guardiola leave Liverpool and City in 2-3 years, they might be in a decent place to challenge again.

Thing is though, Guardiola has a style of play, an ethos - you back him, he gets results.  He's shown that at three of the most well resourced clubs in the world.  Klopp has a style of play, an ethos - you back him, he gets results.  He's showing what the board, fans and players get when you put that support towards the same goal.

With Emery - he isn't a nobody who just arrived on the scene, he had a huge value after his Europa cups for Sevilla and regardless of what we think of his time at PSG - I was actually quite keen to see what he could do with this team.  I don't know if it's language, or he can't get the players to commit - but the play we're seeing on the pitch is an absolute disgrace for a club as well resourced as Arsenal is.  The attack is disjointed, two of the most expensive players are outcasts and the defence is shambolic. That is hardly what you want to see.

I actually think Emery's 'turning point' was the Crystal Palace game last season where he arrogantly started a bunch of 2nd team players who were nowhere near good enough on the day - and then ended up thumped, contributing to losing the CL spot by 1 point, and then getting humiliated in the Europa final.  To me, there was something seriously wrong.  He's had his summer, has a fortune of new players - not that you'd know it as they're playing like a bunch of cloggers. 

In my mind the only way to actually fix this is to see an improvement in play by January or he needs to leave.  I have very little confidence he'd drag this team back to the top 4 or a Europa win otherwise.

Do you reckon he's gone? I haven't seen much of you this season and Emery seems like a decent guy but the results have been poor and a lot of the fans certainly seem to want him out.

Personally think he'll be there for the Norwich game (although you'd know more than me) but that's a huge game. A loss would be it I think,

The board are trying their best to give him the time to turn it round, but how many turn it back from this? When it looks like the manager has lost the team (& the fans) like that, the board I'm afraid are just delaying the inevitable.

He seems a nice guy, but it just hasn't worked out. I've nothing against him really, he just hasn't been good enough. In reflection, he was the wrong choice, just thank the guy for trying and move him on.

I wouldn't be surprised if they try to give him a couple of games, but I also wouldn't be surprised to see him relieved of duties tomorrow.

He's gone eventually. Maybe if they get 5th and win a trophy but even then unless there's a major turn in quality and they put a good run together can't see them putting up with it.

It's so hard to turn it round when it gets this toxic. Even when you look at times when managers have had full seasons like houllier or wenger they didn't manage. I suspect he'll hang on till they find a potential long term replacement. If there was someone ready like klopp was for us he'd be sacked I think
It's wonderful, it's marvellous, it's 3-3

The board are trying their best to give him the time to turn it round, but how many turn it back from this? When it looks like the manager has lost the team (& the fans) like that, the board I'm afraid are just delaying the inevitable.

He seems a nice guy, but it just hasn't worked out. I've nothing against him really, he just hasn't been good enough. In reflection, he was the wrong choice, just thank the guy for trying and move him on.

I wouldn't be surprised if they try to give him a couple of games, but I also wouldn't be surprised to see him relieved of duties tomorrow.

They’re probably looking for the right spot in the fixture list to give the new manager a half decent chance. There’s no way he comes back from this.

It’s a tough gig though, they pretty much need an entirely new midfield, teams are just waltzing through like they’re not even there.
WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!

Normally a player can look great on tubes, but one of the things that's encouraging for me is just the amount of youtube videos on him
