Am not impressed with our new manager at all

Sorry but if this was Wenger we'd all being mad!

A past it RB who can't run. Who's probably on huge wages.

A goalkeeper who's almost as error prone as Cech.

Giving Xhaka one of the worst players we've seen in an Arsenal shirt an new contract.

Making Wilshere feel like he's got no choice but to leave.

And now being linked to a whole host of average CM's

Anyone who thinks we'll improve are in for a shock!

I mean...yeah... I agree, but two things.

1. It's early doors
2. IT was always the club not the manager anyway, even more so now. This new structure has all the power. The manager role is actually pretty redundant other than on the training pitch and during the game for us now.

Don't get me wrong though. The calibre of player we have been linked with and signed is dreadful

We were never going to sign the best players in the world going into our second season in the Europa League

You gave 22 years to a manager who turned out to be kinda fraud in the end of his tenure so you gotta give a game or two to the new 'head coach', he isn't buying or selling players he still haven't start working, dude.

Gunnersingh1 I hope you are trolling because if not then you are an idiot.

Why?

Because:

Emery didn't choose for us to have a budget of only £70m, the board did. Blame the board and Stan as we should have £150m to spend easily even after not being the CL for two years.

Most of the signings so far have been done and decided by the team of Mislintat, Sanllehi and Gazidis. Remember how Emery has been described as a Head Coach and not a manager?

We gave Wilshere a new contract, but he wanted to be guaranteed first place starter, which he is not good enough for and is still injury prone. We didn't force Wilshere to leave. We also need to be ruthless.

£70m is why we have been linked with average players, not Emery's fault.

The only I thing you can blame Emery about is deciding that Xhaka is goodenough to be given a new contract. Even then we can't be sure how Emery much of a say he in this as the new contract might a way to make sure we don't have another situation where our players are able run down their contracts.

We haven't even kicked ball yet since Emery has been appointented and you are blaming him instead of the people involved.

You can blame Emery if he fails to improve our defense, mentality, organisation, coaching, tactics, discipline, ruthlessness, etc...

If Emery can improve those things of our team then we should be able to get back in the top 4, even with the players we have now and top 4 is the target for this new season.

You can't expect us to challange for the title now, even if we were signed top class players.

This is the top and bottom of it all, by the way. Mislintat is in charge of transfers. Emery has no say.

Emery also doesn't have a say in who the media link us to.

Even with Wilshere, the contract has been sat and the table for months and he still hadn't signed it because he himself knew he was behind Ozil, Ramsey, Mkhitaryan, etc.

For the 6th best team in the league 2nd best players are upgrade. That’s the job of the head coach n his coaching team to get the best out of the 2nd best n improve them to be the best also those who still remain 2nd best to ensure they have no resting place at the club.

Kinda process to make Arsenal best again, don’t expect anything overnight.

We should never underestimate how far and fast we were falling - the SLIPPAGE under wenger in player selection and development will take time, effort, and new blood to put this club right.

The new front office team and the new manager deserve a chance to fix things.
Only the most churlish of poppinjays will screech in protest before we get to see the returns on their rebuilding efforts.

I too have been a bit underwhelmed with some of the signings and giving Xhaka a new deal, but, we have to give him a chance. He may see something in Xhaka that he can work with. We have a squad lacking in confidence or skill or both and they need some work. The new 34 year old defender may just give us something a bit extra whilst the other guys are pulled up by their bootstraps or eventually got rid of. Let's just give him a chance.

I'm looking forward to the new season.

Good managers don't moan about the quality of players, they work with what they have, but really good managers will work within the limitations of their squad of players and make the team work. That is what Ranieri did with Leicester when they won the league, he got them to play in a certain system to leverage on their individual strengths, and collectively as a team. A lot of their players were not world beaters. Greece won the European Championship against all odds in the same way. And Denmark in 1996 when they were a last minute replacement for Yugoslavia.

Yes, you need to accept your team's limitations and adjust accordingly. Maybe thats what Wenger's biggest failing is, he didn't accept the need to change their playing style to reflect the lower quality of players after Vieira, Gilberto, Pires, Freddie, Parlour, Henry left.

You must be pragmatic. Win games that you can win, if you can't win, don't lose. It doesn't mean play negative football or park the bus like Mourinho. For a start Arsenal should once again be a good counter attacking team. Remember during the Highbury days, pundits hailed Arsenal for that. Winning the ball in midfield and 2 passes after that the ball is in the net. Vieira wins the ball, ball to Bergy to Henry- goal. These days we hardly score any counter attacking goals.

Now we have one of the fastest strikers in world football in Pierre. Ride on his strengths. If Emery can make the team play as a solid unit, we don't need superstars everywhere to win. Emery is working on improvement our weaknesses, defensive and midfield, balance. Torreira and Banega (if true) are dynamic, hard energy, technically good midfield players. They will bring a collective, combative steel to support Ozil, Henrikh and Ramsey who are all good players. I still am yearning for a flying winger, Gelson Martins would work. Crazy pace, direct player, takes on defenders every chance he gets.

Once we have a good midfield and defense working well and solid, we can always build on it. Win the ball high up the pitch and with our quality up front, take advantage of it.

Sokratis is virtually a done deal, and Liechsteiner is a real nasty piece of work. A person you might not like as a friend, but thats what we need. More van Bommel types, players who look like they would break their own brother's leg playing in the house yard. we no longer should have a team of son-in-laws.

If after a few months, if he fails and we suck, we can always sack him. Everything after Wenger is a new start. After 20 over years, we can keep trying til we get it right. We all wanted Wenger out, we got it. Lets look on the new season with optimism.

Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Considering Wenger never really gave Perez a look in, his return wasn't too bad for a bit part player (7 goals in 21 apps in all competitions). That's a goal every 3 apps, not bad at all.

He also scored 8 goals last season in La Liga in a bang average Deportivo side.

You and the other WengerOut brigade have blamed Wenger for EVERYTHING that has gone wrong at our club for the last 5 seasons and now it's the Owner and Boards fault that our new manager isn't buying your flavour of the month players?

Please don't misunderstand what I'm saying here. I've stated on here in the past that I believe that Wenger should have left 2 or 3 seasons ago, but the pure hatred Ive witnessed on here and on my TV towards Wenger, blinded you and the others in your camp to the utter failings by our clubs ownership.

I am not defending Arsene Wenger in any way. He was kept as our Gaffer far too long, He was employed by our Ownership far too long. And this same Ownership will be to blame if our new Gaffer doesn't succeed in his new job, because we are owned by a greedy little pig who has less football in him than any of us who post on here. THATS THE PROBLEM AT OUR CLUB FULL STOP!

You and the other WengerOut brigade have blamed Wenger for EVERYTHING that has gone wrong at our club for the last 5 seasons and now it's the Owner and Boards fault that our new manager isn't buying your flavour of the month players?

Please don't misunderstand what I'm saying here. I've stated on here in the past that I believe that Wenger should have left 2 or 3 seasons ago, but the pure hatred Ive witnessed on here and on my TV towards Wenger, blinded you and the others in your camp to the utter failings by our clubs ownership.

I am not defending Arsene Wenger in any way. He was kept as our Gaffer far too long, He was employed by our Ownership far too long. And this same Ownership will be to blame if our new Gaffer doesn't succeed in his new job, because we are owned by a greedy little pig who has less football in him than any of us who post on here. THATS THE PROBLEM AT OUR CLUB FULL STOP!

weedz, I was blaming the board and Stan before even started to want Wenger gone, I never blamed Wenger for everything

(if this site's search function actually worked properly all the time then I would bring my posts to show that I blamed the board and Stan as much as I blamed Wenger)

also fans forcing a manager out is much easier to do than to force out board members or owners out of a club

not only that but even though the Stan and the Board can be blamed for a lot of things you can't blame them for our shitty defensive play, weak mentality, huge lack of organisation, poor coaching, poor tactics, lack of discipline, etc.. these were all on Wenger

at least a new manager is a start and hopefully someday in the near future we will also have a board/owner with ambitions of making Arsenal a truly big/elite club both on and off the pitch
