Arsenal has had a rollercoaster season, to say the least…

The world is a very stagnated and strange place at the moment, which is why it’s important to add a sense of normality to your day. Even if that sense of normality was supporting the very abnormal club, Arsenal. Believe me, I feel you, although I can’t help but miss seeing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang score goals on the regular, and seeing the beautiful Mikel Arteta on the touchline.

That said, it’s important to reflect, especially with a huge break in the Premier League schedule and the remainder of this season remaining uncertain. Here are five things for Arsenal to reflect on…

5. Parting ways with Unai Emery was the right decision

The Arsenal board have never been known to make the right decisions when it comes to managers. I’m sure you all remember the era I’m talking about.

However, the decision to part ways with Unai Emery in the first half of this season as the right one. It was a risky choice, granted, but it will pay off in the long-run.

I must admit, there was a moment in time where I missed Emery. Remember when Freddie Ljungberg was appointed as an interim coach? That was a disaster, although he tried his best certainly and he paved the way for the right man to take charge, which we’ll get onto soon.

Onto the next.
