Leicester City vs Arsenal: How much mediocrity is too much?

After another poor game, we Arsenal fans have been left with nothing but shame from rival fans who had rightly predicted that we’d not even get a point in our game against Leicester City.

In the not so distant past, teams would be afraid to leave their halves when they were playing against us, today Leicester City played with so much confidence that we had to be the team fearing for the worst.

Unai Emery has done a lot of good stuff in his career and winning three consecutive Europa Leagues will always stand out but he seems to have taken us backwards.

Emery came in with much fanfare and helped us reach the Europa League final in his first season but he hasn’t done anything of note since that time.

In all honesty, I believe Emery is just an average coach that struggles to do the basics of his job, which is to motivate players.

It is now four games since we last won in the league and one wonders when this slump will stop. There are not many things that can happen for us to miss Arsene Wenger, but at the moment, I would prefer Wenger to be our manager.

We as fans have had our share of troubles especially how we dealt with Granit Xhaka, but these players don’t play like they deserve our support.

Setting up your team with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette should make any team fearful, but Leicester City took us on in a manner that made me wonder if I was supporting a midtable club like Burnley.

What Brendan Rodgers has done with Leicester City is everything that I thought Unai Emery would do for us and I’m not afraid to say that we have seen the best of Emery and he can leave our beloved club now.

There should be some pride when you pull on the Arsenal jersey as a player, but that has to be one of the most difficult things to do right now when the team keeps on playing poorly.

Changes are the only solution to these problems. The manager has to go, the likes of Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil have to go. Dani Ceballos has flattered to deceive, if there is a way to cut our losses and send him packing, we have to explore that option.

A new manager will come with new enthusiasm and bring some fresh ideas, while a few new players will also help us reach new heights as a team. These changes have to be made with immediate effect before it is too late.
