Arsenal fans are questioning the club’s board after reports over Unai Emery’s future at the club.
According to the journalist Simon Mullock, the Spaniard’s future will be decided by the club’s next five Premier League fixtures, including Southampton, Norwich City, Brighton and Hove Albion and West Ham United as well as Manchester City.
Will Unai Emery survive the season in charge of Arsenal?
It seems the uncertainty over improvement under Emery caused this one fan to disagree with the board in allowing the head coach more time.
It will be too late by then

Emery was hired as the manager in May 2018 in a process overseen by a three-man panel including Ivan Gazidis, Sven Mislintat and Raul Sanllehi.
The former Paris Saint Germain manager has overseen a horrid opening 12 games of the top-flight season. After winning their two opening league games, the Gunners have won just two of their last 10, leaving them eight points off fourth place.
Fans were adamant Emery shouldn’t be afforded more time by the club as they took to Twitter to react, slamming the news that he could be sacked but only after those five games.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
So the club recognizes that they are in a crisis, but choose to stick with the crisis instead of taking a chance that the next manager will help solve it

Basically we’re gonna lose all the games and sack him after that? Why wait and waste games ?
