The beauty of what is unfolding

Amidst all the arguments of what our best line up and formation should be, amidst the clamour to drop certain “donkeys” what has unfolded is almost poetic. We are witnessing for the first time in a long time, real honest to God competition

Unai Emery has stumbled his way to creating an environment where players who have defined roles are either fighting to keep them or fighting to improve on them. Nobody on the bench is content with just being on the bench, everyone seems to be eager to show what they can do with a smile on their face. Similarly, nobody that starts regularly is comfortable in their role

The beauty doesn’t just start and end with the players willingness to compete with the right attitudes, the real beauty is that the “donkeys” are actually trotting about their business like stallions.

Players that we have written off due to past performances, are showing and proving. The likes of Welbeck and Iwobi are staking a real claim for superstars like Özil and Auba to be dropped. Players like Mkhitaryan and Holding are seizing their opportunities when given a chance. Their energy is consistent whether or not they find themselves on the bench the next game despite playing a blinder the week before

There are players like Guendouzi who have displayed more ability than the current occupiers of their role, and forced the likes of Xhaka to step up their game. And there are quality back ups like Elneny, Litchenstiener and exciting young talents like Smith-Rowe, Mavraponos etc that haven’t disappointed when given an opportunity


If you squint and focus real hard you might see a semblance of an Arsenal we used to know

I’m not trying to get carried away given the level of opposition we have faced thus far, but I think that the Clown that decided to get rid of Jack, is beginning to show himself capable.

Interesting to note that Arsenal are now the second highest goal scorers in the division.

His decision to let Jack go was sensible, lets park up the arguments on how good or bad Jack is, I think he let him go because he knows that Jack is injury prone. After all he was prepared to give Damny and Iwobi a chance to prove theirselves.



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. 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.

Your post lost all credibility with this sentence. It’s no good insinuating that Emery has just winged it as far and then list all the positive changes that have happened at the club since he arrived as if it’s by some coincidence.

It’s early days but give the guy credit. I didn’t want Wishire to leave either, but even that’s turning out to be another correct decision by Emery.

Unai Emery will bring Arsenal back to glory days. The manager has really turned the team around in a very short time. I can't comment much about the games since I didn't watch last couple of games after the Everton game but he really made the team hungry, he doesn't play players out of positions or out of their strength n depth. So far he didn't show that he has any privileged player of special choice in the team although people might argue about Xhaka, or Mustafi but both are playing considerably better although still the defense is pretty poor n I'm sure will be found out against better teams.
This guy is no frill manager n soon Arsenal will start winning major trophies.

He dooes play players out of position

He plays Özil on the right everyone knows he’s best in the middle
He plays Auba on the left, everyone knows he is a striker
He plays Ramsey at 10, everyone knows he’s a number 8
He plays Cech in goal everyone knows his best position is the bench

Speaking of Auba as striker, are we eventually going to see Lacazette and Aubameyang in a 4-4-2 as our preferred formation?
