Arsenal "Lose" 2-2 As Pressure Mounts on Emery

Arsenal travelled to Vicarage Road for what was supposed to be some relief in their schedule after playing Liverpool and Tottenham in back to back matches. The trip to the bottom of the table Watford was anything but relieving as the Gunners blew a 2-0 half time to give the Hornets just their second point of the season. Unai Emery's side took a 2-0 lead into halftime despite being outshot eight to three. By the end of the match, they …

Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal were disappointing in defeat against Liverpool last weekend. There was a clear plan from Unai Emery, as he looked to counter with pace and exploit the wide spaces left vacant by the advancing Reds' full-backs. It wasn't a bad idea. In fact, if Nicolas Pepe had scored his one-on-one at 0-0, the Gunners may have gone on to get something from the game. However, the new signing was denied by Adrian and a predictable home win came to pass. …

Kieran Tierney could solve Arsenal's left back problems

Arsenal have been linked heavily to Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney as they look to build a squad capable of challenging for a return to the Champions League. Unai Emery showed signs of being able to compete last season, but he requires reinforcements if he is to challenge at the very top of the division.

Unai Emery's First Season Ends in Disaster

Unai Emery's First Season Ends in Disaster

Arsenal had a chance to win their first European Trophy (outside of the now-defunct Fairs Cup and Cup Winners Cup) on Wednesday.

He was given a mandate for this season when he was hired; get Arsenal back into the Champions League. Their defeat in Baku ended any …

Evaluating Unai Emery's Start at Arsenal

When Arsene Wenger stepped down at the end of last season he was leaving a gigantic hole for his successor to fill. Arsenal chose Unai Emery to fill that hole. His first six months have had some highlights, such as the 22 game unbeaten run, and some low-lights, such as the 5-1 beat down at the hands of Liverpool. More than halfway through the season the honeymoon period is over, so it is time to start evaluating the work Emery has …
