It’s clear to see that Unai Emery and Arsenal is a relationship that isn’t working.
When Unai Emery first came in, he talked a good game. Actually, scratch that, he talked a great game.
I remember when Ivan Gazidis revealed that Emery would be the next Arsenal manager, I was impressed with what the Spaniard had to say. He talked about having a detailed dossier on every Arsenal player, he talked about how he can improve each player and also discussed how Arsenal can improve overall as a team.
But since that faithful day 18 months ago, things have actually got worse. Much worse.
Under Arsene Wenger we were a free flowing attacking team, that couldn’t defend. Now, we’re a team that still can’t defend but now are sterile in attack. We have a player in Aubameyang who is a world class striker but he can’t score goals because he doesn’t get any service. If he was at Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City or even Leicester City, he’d be scoring at least a goal a game. Against Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, he’s been starved of any service.
It’s obvious things aren’t working out, and I would be stunned if Edu, Raul and the rest of the executive team weren’t sounding out possible replacements. They have to be surely?
And looking at the recent reports, there seems to be 10 names in the frame at the moment.
So below, I have listed the 10 managers who are rumoured to be on our radar:
- Jose Mourinho
- Massimiliano Allegri
- Mikel Arteta
- Thierry Henry
- Patrick Vieira
- Brendan Rodgers
- Freddie Ljungberg
- Rafael Benitez
- Eddie Howe
- Espirito Santo
