Any talk of who they will get in to replace him? Think he’ll do well to survive the weekend.

Understand he's quite young but is Guendouzi really worth the hype? Been average every time I've seen him.

It's hard to judge any individual players when the manager has lost the team like that I reckon.

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

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.

The manager you needed is currently at Leicester, I think. Shares a lot of the same principles as Wenger, makes players feel good about themselves (initially), and has experience at a big club. I think that will count as a missed trick for Arsenal if you end up getting the next appointment wrong.

What odds Patrick Viera being the next manager?

They need someone who can at least get the midfield to play in the same half as the defence for at least part of the game.

They'll appoint Arteta as his permanent replacement.  Perfect in a not-rocking-the-boat way, but just enough of a new shine on him to keep the natives happy-ish.

Just seen this now he isn't a bad manager just impossible to deal with them trying to change the way they play and deal with there terrible support

hope Rafa stays clear of Arsenal. I can see them going down the Chelsea route in appointing an inexperienced manager maybe go for Arteta

We announce today that the decision has been taken to part company with our head coach Unai Emery and his coaching team.

Speaking on behalf of the Arsenal board and our owners Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, Josh Kroenke said: “Our most sincere thanks go to Unai and his colleagues who were unrelenting in their efforts to get the club back to competing at the level we all expect and demand. We wish Unai and his team nothing but future success.”

The decision has been taken due to results and performances not being at the level required.

We have asked Freddie Ljungberg to take responsibility for the first team as interim head coach. We have full confidence in Freddie to take us forward.

The search for a new head coach is underway and we will make a further announcement when that process is complete.

The recruitment is terrible

90m on pepe
25m on Tierney
6m on luiz

issue was the defence and they go buy David Luiz the bombscare
Tierney is well out his depth I think its funny that Pat Nevin came out and said he would take Tierney over Robbo every week and he was the best Left back in the UK will take the prem by storm   :D


they need a massive clear out and re build. they have no solid spine and no leaders.
