Unai Emery


#2233

Exactly lmao


#2234

Yeah. The problem with that is that Unai Emery is not Jurgen Klopp.


#2235

Think most people will have a decent idea of Emery’s capabilities by the end of next season. Jury is still out at this point


#2236

You’re aware Emery has had a 10-year career at this point? Being at Arsenal is not really going to change what he is.


#2237

Like I said, we’ll see by the end of next season.

I don’t know how you can definitively assess what he can do for Arsenal just yet


#2238

It’s not definitive. But our stature in English football right now and his track record as a coach gives a pretty clear idea of what we are our heading for.


#2239

They both have been managers for a similar amount of time, and Klopp has less silverware on his C.V.

Being at Liverpool is not really going to change what he is.


#2240

You think Emery is as good of a manager as Klopp is?


#2241

There’s no evidence to suggest otherwise.


#2242

Klopp’s 2 league titles competing with Bayern Munich hold a lot more weight than Emery’s Europa League titles, but hey people can believe what they want.


#2243

So many Klopp dick-riders :slight_smile:


#2244

Klopp is the better manager.


#2245

What’s the evidence that he is on equal footing? Because Klopp has actually won very little if you just look at the numbers. Only two League title and one domestic cup. Following this logic the list of better managers than Klopp is quite long.

Should have stuck with Wenger than.


#2246

Ride 'em cowboy!


#2247

If anyone starts a klopp v emery thread they’re getting banned :gunnersaurus:


#2248

I would tend to agree with this, but he also has some lows in his career… but larger point - HE WAS NOT AVAILABLE to us when we were finally looking… and neither was Guardiola.

I think people also dismiss what Emery did with teams way below their level, including promotions and unprecedented results… not to mention 3 times EL in a row is pretty damn impressive… and his PSG failure imo is overblown - he still got the preponderance of trophies minus an historic year by Monaco - which was Leicester City-like (and they are much more competitive on average than LC).

Many of us would probably rather we got Nagelsman or one of a few other names perhaps, but the haters are a bit over the top imho…


#2249

It was you who brought up managerial careers as evidence.


#2250

That’s a massive understatement.


#2251

I think that’s my gripe with the situation, everyone on here knows I think we should have been looking when Klopp was available and yeah I’d have preferred Nagelsman or Jardim, Sarri also but I suppose you could say we didn’t have a chance due to Chelsea.


#2252

yeah I would assume once Chelsea got involved in Sarri, it was game over for us… it would be interesting to go back and look at the timing though… perhaps had we acted earlier and more aggressively, who knows.
