Arsenal’s death warrant signed

I have become less and less interested in Arsenal and football in general over the last few years. Following this joke club has really sucked the life and passion out of me when it comes to football. And for that reason I never read football related news anymore, don’t use twitter anymore, don’t watch Sky Sports News anymore, pretty much I only ever get my Arsenal related updates from here. So it comes as a great surprise to me that I am yet to read any article about Emery getting sacked. In fact I see Ornstein saying that the board have given Emery the dreaded vote of confidence. Dreaded for any other manager but at this joke club, when they say they believe in the manager, they mean it (see how long it took to get rid of Wenger).

I really thought that with Ivan and Wenger gone, we could really push on as a club. Be brave with our planning and decisions, and distance ourselves from the soft identity we have become known for over the last decade.

The decision though, to stick with Emery, shows me more than ever that Arsenal as a big club are finished. Wenger left almost irreparable damage behind when leaving this club and Emery has only made things worse. Sacking Emery after the Leicester game was the easiest and most obvious decision our board will ever have to make and they didn’t have the balls to make it. To me that shows that the club is not serious about moving forward and competing with the big boys. Unfortunately every minute Emery spends at the club widens the gap between us and the clubs around us. Make no mistake, we WILL finish behind crisis clubs like Spurs and United if Emery sees out his contract, and I hope that is the case because the next manager won’t have to worry about balancing the PL and Europa with a god awful squad next season.

But then I have no faith in the board finding an able replacement for Emery. It’s clear they don’t want to buy a manager out of his contract at another club and barring pot luck, a bargain bucket manager without a club is not going to get us out of this mess (don’t say Allegri, we could have appointed him before but chose Emery). The bottom line is we are faaacked. You may think things are bad now but I can guarantee they will only get worse. We will not finish top 6 this season never mind top 4.

Sorry but you have to take the lows with the highs. We're more than happy to laugh at Spurs, Utd or Liverpool when they are struggling. Time for you to Man up and take your lumps.

As far as I am concerned, the season is already written off. I don't even enjoy watching our games, it's like self-harming. #EmeryOut

Think you're talking about yourselves, unless you can find quotes?

Yes, we should all just sit quietly while the club gets worse and worse.

And yes we have spent most of the 40 years I've been supporting Leicester in the wilderness but I've never lost interest, my support for the club has never wained and I'm no more of a fan now than I was when we were in League One. I'm happier of course but my love for the club hasn't changed.

This comment is spot on

I have supported Spurs since 1958, seen great times and some bad times, including relegation. However, I do not feel entitled, like a lot of supporters these days do.

Arsenal have some phenomenal success since the PL started, they have also played some of the best football seen in the PL, this however does not mean it will always be successful.
Football is cyclical and supporters should enjoy the club’s history and tradition as much they do the trophies
