Arsenal fans were far from happy with Unai Emery in European embarrassment

Defensive frailties, weak tactics and a lack of creativity haunted the Gunners in yesterday’s early evening kick-off. Arsenal fans will be feeling pretty robbed today to have shelled out on flights, accommodation and tickets just to be embarrassed bt Stade Rennais, and Unai Emery is bearing the brunt of the blame.

It really isn’t hard to see why Emery is being given pelters for his performance last night. Whilst having Sokratis Papastathopoulos given his marching orders on the stroke of half-time didn’t help, the fans couldn’t help but pin this one on their manager. Emery has a real love affair with the Europa League, winning it in three consecutive years with Sevilla, yet he’ll need to get his act together this time.

The Spaniard’s bizarre changes and intent to continue playing a high-intensity pressing game despite being a man down was frankly absurd. Any other manager would have sat in at 1-1 or even at 2-1 down and attempted to limit the damages, yet the ex-PSG boss showed signs of inexperience with his game plan, and he is now rightfully being slated by his own fans for the way they fell to a defeat in France.

The Gunners were fuming to see their side fall to a 3-1 defeat and now they have it all to do at The Emirates in six days time.
