Tonight it is Tottenham v Liverpool in the Champions League final. I will not be watching.
There are lessons to be learn, however, from Liverpool and Tottenham for Arsenal fans in the way things need to be one in the future.
Both teams have stuck with their managers despite a lack of success, believing that they were the right men to take them forward. Tonight one of them will break their trophy duck in charge of their relative club.
Following Arsenal’s defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday, Arsenal fans overacted with many calling for Unai Emery’s head. Demanding to be sacked. Many of those doing it did so because they missed Emery off their short lists to be Arsene Wenger’s replacement. They backed Allegri or Arteta and have not been willing to give the Emery the chance.
Emery is the right manager.
Emery is already ahead of Pochettino and Klopp when it comes to win ratio in English football.
Jurgen Klopp’s first 3 seasons with Liverpool saw them finish 8th, 4th and 4th. They lost the League Cup Final, Europa League Final and Champions League Final.
Prior to tonight’s game, Pochettino had just a League Cup Final defeat on his record. Three times Tottenham were in the Europa League under him. The furthest they got was the round of 16 (once). They were knocked out in the Round of 32 twice.
Their fans stuck with the managers, giving them a chance. Realising they were taking them forward and all they were lacking was success.
Unai Emery’s Arsenal are already vastly superior to where Tottenham and Liverpool were after Klopp and Pochettino’s 1st seasons.
Emery is not going to be sacked this summer. He should not be sacked this summer.
Instead of using your time and energy trying to start a campaign against him because you did not want him in the 1st place, spend it on supporting him, supporting The Arsenal.
