Jesus augie. How many times? If the manager is not delivering whose responsibility is it to remove him? The manager himself?Have to say that even when I wanted wenger out I felt that pointing the finger at the board was a distraction from the issues at hand, and I feel the same now - yes we have a cuntish board who don't give two fcuks about our club, but emery has a good squad available to him and isn't woefully underperforming with them and the blame for that cannot be put at the boards door imo
The issue with Wenger was that the board /owner had the responsibility to remove a seriously past it manager and delayed doing so by at least 5 maybe even 10 years. How is that a distraction? It was a key issue.
The blame to be put at the board's door now is not appointing a top manager. And if Emery is still here next year and still underperforming then the blame to lay at the board's door is not removing him once he has clearly demonstrated he isn't good enough. Something he is doing at the moment I think most of us can agree.
I'm not disagreeing with any of that buddy - what I am saying though, is that emery has been given a talented squad to work with and is failing badly, and that is 100% on him. That the board should sack him is another point altogether, and I just feel that people are mixing the 2 together and it is a distraction. If we had different owners would emery be doing better right now ? I think we all know that the answer to that is a resounding no, and seeing as this is a poll about the manager only, my criticisms are focused solely on emery
