Unai Emery – a blast from the past?

It is with sincere thanks to Amy Lawrence that I have come to the conclusion, albeit as a knee-jerk decision that Unai Emery is akin to George Graham in a very specific way.

George Graham when he joined Arsenal knew that he needed to ship out the established stars. He knew he needed to integrate youth players with real potential who would buy into him. He knew he needed to mould his team and he couldn’t do that with the likes of Kenny Samson.

We’ve seen a moving on of established squad players under Unai as well. Unai is a demanding manager, you play his way. Just like Graham.

Unai is having a similar level of success with the young blood coming through. The likes of Rob Holding and Matteo Guendouzi are a testament to his methods. Their improvement under Unai has been considerable. Whilst the likes of Willock, Saka, Nelson and Martinelli are all being given big roles to play.

I doubt we’ll ever see 1:0 to The Arsenal as a regular scoreline, but it gives me a little hope for the future.
