Freddie For Fourth?

Anyone think Freddie taking over would see at least players in the right positions and a sudden and drastic change in approach and gameplay. Literal completely different team with almost the same players? Tbh if Emery is sacked I'd rather we gave Freddie his shot second half of the season at least, than bring in someone new. Alot of faith involved but also some thought and consideration of:

1. Long held belief that AW needed to be succeded by a former player (preferably a legend). Strategy wise, Arsenal FC only ever needed a younger, fresher perspective and more modern approach to how we done what we done best. Play sexy football.

2. Freddie was a thinking MF who read the game brilliantly. They're almost always good managers. Also a vague recollection of AW saying in some interview that Freddie was always “With the questions" and very much a student of football, one of his best.

3. Just having Freddie as the man on the touchline may well see the Emirates crowd wanting to cheer the team on even if things aren't going well. Finally bringing the 12th man to that stadium. And with it a sudden abilty to hold on to/recapture a lead reliably.

4. The obvious immediate respect and at least short term, obedience of his players, wait for it, EVEN WoS Ozil included
Yeah, I WB2 said it. Freddie may get Ozil's best. As though it shoulda been a piece of cake for AW or UE too. Will cut him a deal, “You don't have to track back or tackle but you must...WILL press the ball." And Ozil will do it or something else ridiculously simple like that. He's likely spent more time talking to/with Ozil than Emery and possibly Wenger too. A more casual dynamic is likely to have gained him a better understanding of the player and thus he'll better understand how to get results from him.

5. Edu organization off the pitch bringing stabilty and ability unseen at Arsenal since DD getting Freddie alot of help along the road. Freddie want a player who can do... Edu goes and gets him one. Little mess no drama, squad business handled.

That's my reasoning and faith combined. Don't know if I'd go the final step to necessarily say “Sack Emery to bring in Freddie," just yet. Not with it looking like Xhaka may not stink up the team again/for much longer. More saying if the decision to sack Emery is actively taken, personally I'd back Freddie to 4th as much as any manager whom could be installed at this point. This is one where who the man is, his experience of the club, the game and more importantly both's, transition to present day. Is more than enough to compensate for lack of top flight management experience, when pitting him as a choice against most any of the managers out there. Tell you one thing for sure. Freddie has more chance than Murinho. Since some HETHENS have suggested that sacrilegious choice followed by travesty, is a way the club should go. Tut tut tut, shame on you

Most of us are calling for Emery's head but who's to say the board ain't going to back him?

Emery is over achieving with your squad of players, be careful what you wish for

I'm not calling for his head but that's more due to fear of a management merry-go-round hitting us like it did Utd. Changing the manager after 1 and a bit seasons isn't/wouldn't be a good start, in terms of avoiding that. So I'm reluctant to sack Emery before xmas. Given our league position. He was due to go end of the season anyway so short of disaster, I see keeping him in post and not rushing a replacement choice (unless one already made) as a more favourable option.

Especially if Freddie is potential replacement. Phasing Freddie in through 2nd half of the season, with gracious exit for Emery at end. Kinda just fading Emery away slowly and more importantly, quietly. No big AFC management drama headlines. And Freddie doesn't have to start from a desperate, knee-jerk deep end. If replacement isn't Freddie or another former player. Just keep Emery and take the time to select carefully. If we don't make 4th then new manager is better of with no European football next season. That does seem to work league wonders for European comp regulars, where the team's fallen apart. Remember Chelsea running around fresh as daisies all season and smashing the PL win. Real helpful only having to play once a week when you need to sort ya team out.

No point sticking with a dud manager, which Emery clearly is.

If you're hirung and quickly firing managers without giving them a chance then that's silly.

Emery has done absolutely nothing so far to suggest he's capable of fixing our problems and has in fact made them worse (thanks to our transfer committee thing, the squad is actually far better than previous seasons as well).
