‘So bad, He needs to leave’ – Some fans attack this Arsenal man despite win on Sunday
Some Arsenal fans appeared to have been left more frustrated and unimpressed than ever after watching how the team fared on Sunday against Bournemouth.
Under Arsene Wenger, the Gunners were known as a team who were never afraid to have a go at the opposition, with goals rarely being a concern during the campaign.
Indeed, Arsenal’s ultra-attacking system was deemed to be too focused on dominating opponents and creating chances that some felt the team lacked enough discipline when they lost the ball under Wenger’s management.
However, under Unai Emery, the Gunners have adopted a more conservative style of play, which sees the manager often name two or even three defensive midfielders in his starting eleven.
Sunday’s game saw Arsenal barely squeeze past Bournemouth in a hard-fought 1-0 win and some fans lashed out at Emery and his tactics after the game at the Emirates stadium.
Arsenal are so bad. The win is nice, but we just got outplayed by Bournemouth at home. Not because we don’t have better players, but because the manager is determined not to attack

Emery needs to leave Arsenal… We don’t have any creativity. We play like Burnley, just long balls. It’s sad. #EmeryOut

So the idea that Arsenal fans should be happy just because the results are alright doesn’t make sense to me. We were burned by that exact issue last year and people have just forgotten?

Is there any1 out there who thinks they have a clear idea on what Emery’s tactical plan for this team is?
My best guess is he wants to make us a counter-attacking team who thrive on transition rather than possession. But, like I say, there’s a lot of guesswork filling in blanks.

For me, results are paramount. And that is why the quality of our football worries me. Because one of two things will happen: either performances will improve or results will tail off.
