​It's a big day for ​Arsenal fans.

After months of calling for Unai Emery's head, ​Arsenal have finally sacked their head coach today. Last night's 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt was probably the final nail in the coffin. 

While there was some positivity around Emery's appointment 18 months ago, that quickly faded this season as the Gunners slumped to seven matches without a win - the first time Arsenal have experienced such a run since 1992.

Freddie Ljungberg will take over as interim manager, and Arsenal fans could not be happier.

​​Most Arsenal fans knew the sack was coming, but according to ​David Ornstein, Emery took a training session this morning, completely unaware that he would be getting the sack.


Emery took Arsenal to the finals of the Europa League last season, but he was a wrong fit at the club. He had really big boots to fill after taking over from Arsene Wenger, and failed, rather miserably.


Emery does have another achievement to his name - beating ​Tottenham, but sadly that wasn't enough. He needed results, and despite splurging cash in the summer transfer window, Arsenal find themselves eight on the ​Premier League table, eight points below fourth-placed ​Chelsea.

Maybe, it was simply a case of the wrong manager at the wrong time. Emery knew his time was up months ago, but the board decided to stick with him. 

Nevertheless, it's time to say "Good Ebening" and goodbye, Unai Emery!
