Should build an Unai statue tbh. Would symbolize Arsenal. If any manager ever epitomized modern day Arsenal and her aspirations, it's Emery.

And whomsoever thought it was right to hire him, fire him. But most Gooners deserved Emery.

Emery will ultimately be a blip in Arsenal's history. But Ozil is still lucky that he even got picked for our first European final in 13 years, despite not making any impact during the QFs and SFs when the rest of the team were putting everything out there.

Emery f***ked up this season beyond redemption and deserved the sack. But Ozil has shown that no manager can revive a zombie. Wenger couldn't, Emery didn't bother, and Arteta can't either.

Mesut Ozil is still the highest chance creator in the side with 2.3 chances per 90. Nicolas Pepe is second with 1.9 chances while academy prodigy Joe Willock has created 1.5 chances per game.

Sums it up nicely for me. :clap: :clap:

Emery - a complete muppet who actually managed to do a worse job than Wenger, which is quite something - criticising one of our greatest ever players.
Funny.
I thought we got our Arsenal back - but we got Emery

People trying to get satisfaction from the comments of a certified douche in Emery need to take a look at themselves. Since when is the opinion of a f***ing idiot worth anything?!

People should read the whole of Emery's interview.

It's clear cut. He was the wrong choice for Arsenal. What's worse is that the likes of Gazidis, Sanllehi, and Josh hired him in the first place. They just needed a scapegoat after Wenger.

A lot of us didn't want Emery here because we more or less knew that he wasn't a good choice. He'd be perfect for Everton. For Arsenal, his style and caliber suggested a misfit from the go.

Man management is a major skill. Zidane at Real proved its value. The two best managers in Prem history have proven that

Jose has proven how lack of such a skill could devastate a manager in today's times.

It's a shame, it didn't work out with Emery. I hope it does with Mikel.

Gazidis, Mislintat and Emery were supposed to run the post Wenger era. All are gone 18 months later. Now it’s three novices and Raul. Doubt this regime will last much longer.

In years to come, the Ozil Chop will be given the same reverence as the Cryuff Turn or the Panenka.

Members of the Ozil fan club in Ghana visited Thomas Partey’s family and gave them an Arsenal Jersey :rofll: :rofll: :rofll:

If it pans out that the restart does go ahead as planned and all the games get played, isn't it a possibility that this hiatus could work in our favour regards Arteta being better equipped to prepare, coax and cajole the current squad into 10 good performances?

I appreciate that our positivity default setting is currently at minus 11, but, what if enough professional pride and ambition remains within the squad for them to muster a concerted effort when fuelled by our coach's vim and vigor to succeed in his first managerial role?

With that scenario in place, what if the layoff proved to give Ozil the equivalent of a 100,000 mile full service as opposed to the usual end of season recharging of the batteries, and he plays a blinder for the 10 games? Too little too late? Almost certainly so, but it would be interesting to see if there'd suddenly be a clamour for his inclusion in the team for the start of his final season.

For as much as I didn't like the vast majority of the football under Unai Emery along with a lot of his decisions, I never foresaw for a moment the collapse as was to come with 10 games to go last season. With that in mind, maybe the way we manage to complete this season will be the polar opposite to last year.

Possible yes
But you are talking a recharge accessible to all players, Ozil has never shown to me to be highly motivated to anything apart from his wallet.
But every player is in the same boat not only Ozil and I expect the more highly motivated and less sulky will do more of the bussiness. It will be interesting to me if Ozil actually appears
