I think we can all agree that after the draw against Crystal Palace and the manner of the draw, we can safely say that things are beyond repair.
Unai Emery’s philosophy is clearly not getting through to the players (if indeed he has one at all) and the team has under performed since March of last season.
The fanbase is already at a toxic level, and we’re only 10 games into the new season.
Granit Xhaka, reacted in a way not befitting of a captain, never mind an Arsenal captain, and the aftermath is very ugly indeed.
There are pictures on Twitter already of Lucas Torreira crying as he saw the abuse aimed at Granit Xhaka when he was taken off, and Amy Lawrence has reported that senior players visited a devoted Xhaka at his home.
This has all turned into a really big, sorry mess which is not reflecting good on the manager, the players, the fans and the club. I don’t think things have been this bad before.
Our season is threatening to go into free fall if things don’t change soon.
The bottom line is, this job is too big for most managers and it certainly is too big for Unai Emery. We need a manager who has big club experience, at the highest level, and the man to turn the tide is Jose Mourinho.
He has the ego, tactical knowledge and man management skills to get the best out of our squad. He got the best out of Mesut Özil at Real Madrid which is a big bonus, and while he’s had his moments (quite a few of the actually), he would do a fantastic job at Arsenal.
But what do you think? Do you think Jose Mourinho would be the man to turn things around? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
