Players thrown under a bus or disposed of by Emery
Ozil. Xhaka. Mustafi. Ramsey
I could mention certain defenders and others, but those four will do for now.
After throwing said players under a bus, things are considerably worse, in every way. He can no longer blame the players, so he now has to take the blame, as does that man Raul, who reportedly gave us Emery, who persuaded the Kroenkes or whoever against Ivan’s pick, Arteta, and who ever Sven wanted to succeed Wenger.
There is now clearly only one man to blame for Baku, f*cking up the end of last season, a terrible run of form, throwing away leads in our last 5 ? games, key players not signing, confused players, piss taking youngsters, rumours of discontent in the dressing room, the captaincy debacle, record shots against, and what is surely coming this weekend, yes, one man to blame, step forward Steve Morrow
Why do things remain the same? It is said by some unkind people that many of Stan’s sports clubs move forward with the pace of a climate change retreating glacier. But is Stan to blame for Emery, he has certainly backed him in the transfer window. We know Raul will lose face if Emery is sacked, as will others, including I suspect Josh Kroenke.
Perhaps the board want to let supporters, and perhaps players, as they cannot get just rid of managers on a whim ?
But how much more evidence do they need , they have screwed up with this appointment, Emery is a footballing, PR and squad harmony disaster, and he is not going to get any better, there is a serious trend occurring, and it doesn’t take a quant analyst to interpret it. If they keep this man until the end of the season, or beyond, supporters, players, sponsors must realise that the Kroenkes and board do not have the ambitions they claim, either that, or they are weak, no wonder Jose wants in at this club, he would walk all over this board.
But , a word for Emery. He is damn clever. Throw Xhaka under a bus, get rid of Ramsey, insist Torreira is some sort of number 10, put more holes in our MF than there are in Blackburn Lancashire, one of our worse runs of form for years, all with one goal, forcing Edu to sign Emerys favourite Argentinian midfielder. Clever!
And now Raul has a problem, an expensive one.
Emery is Rauls man, but so is Pepe, an expensive acquisition with the help of super agent Mendes.
Looking like emery , who will cost a few million to lose, is not compatible with the £72 million player, and probably never will be. In fact, he seems to be killing Pepe.
Do the sums, Josh/ Edu/ Stan , even if Raul is too compromised in this situation to be in anyway whatever considered objective.
