Apparently, Uani Emery is a weak manager with players walked all over him

More and more, I see him as a weak manager with players walked all over him like at PSG.

WTF he meant by making Aaron Ramsey the nucleus of his new team when knowing that he will never sign a new contract "unless Arsenal matches his expectation".

If it is Ferguson, he will be shipped out in no time like Paul Ince, Lee Sharpe, Stam, et al.

Mesut Ozil?
He is not known for tracking back, never has a defensive bone in his make-up even at Real Madrid under Mourinho. But Mourinho has a Double Pivot in Alonso-Khedira to cover up for Ozil's defensive shortcomings.

And convincing Ozil to play the high-tempo pressing game is like askign Zidane to track back in WC1998.

Like against WHU, time to play Mkhi as the no. 10 and just drop Ozil until both of them got their head right.
And it si not too late to sell both Ramsey and Ozil to European club and just move on to rebuild the team with players committed to play hsi high-line and high tempo game.

Time to fish or cut the bait by selling off Wenger's love children before 31 August 2018 liek how Ferguson got rid of Paul Ince and Jaap Stam; and even the Golden One, David Beckham whose pop-star lufestyle was startign to have a determental effect on the team.

Isn't the contract situation of both Ramsey and a satiated Ozil, with no commitment and motivation, are determental to teh team-building now?

Is the pressing game the only game in town? I say we can still be successful if we significantly improve our defensive game especially when we dont have the ball. Defensive solidality is more important than learning to play out of defence and pressing.

Not sure how you come to this conclusion considering both Ramsey and ozil have been dropped from the starting 11 for a game each this season. And all of the front six have been benched at some point in the first 3 games. I doubt any of them think their place in the starting line up is safe.

It may be more of a case of players being too powerful.

Emeri isn't impressing me much so far though. I wanted total revision not more of the same. I see no reason to have got rid of Wenger if we plan on playing the same way.
