[Tweet] Unai Emery Sends Message To Arsenal Fans On Twitter After Man City Defeat

By on August 13, 2018


Unai Emery has sent a message to Arsenal fans on Twitter following our opening weekend defeat to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Emery took over the reigns from Arsene Wenger at the end of last season and he couldn’t have asked for a tougher start to life in the Premier League after being pitted against the defending champions.

Pep Guardiola’s side picked up where they left off last season as they opened the scoring in the 14th minute thanks to a fine strike from Raheem Sterling before Bernado Silva wrapped things up midway through the second half.

Arsenal fans have been split following the defeat with some already on Emery’s back saying nothing has changed from last season as we made familiar mistakes at the back, while others have looked on the positive side of things as there were signs of improvement on Sunday.

Emery is one of the few managers who have their own personal Twitter account and he’s bravely posted a message to fans tonight thanking them for their support and declaring that everyone at the club is working hard to put things right.

So far the reply’s have been positive with most fans backing the manager but it’s going to be interesting to see how things go if Emery continues to tweet after defeats a few months down the line.

I welcome the interaction on social media but it’s just asking for trouble when the honeymoon period is over and some sections of the fan-base start to turn. I personally don’t think Unai will be tweeting for long, put it that way.

However, I do hope the supporters give him time to get things right on the pitch as it’s not an easy process to break down everything Wenger has been doing for 22 years and start afresh.

It was clear on Sunday that the players were working much harder to press high up the pitch and Emery has a different style of play he wants to embed in the team but it’s not going to happen overnight.  And let’s not forget he was up against one of the best teams in recent Premier League history.

Let’s be patient and start to judge Emery in a few months….and be nice to him on Twitter!
