AFP or licensors Arsenal have gone from bad to worse under Unai Emery this season – and he’s finally been axed Ray Parlour gives his honest opinion about AFTV – ‘It should be called Arsenal Fail TV’“Brendan Rodgers – you would go all out to get him no matter how much he cost, if you could.“Would he want to leave Leicester? We’re a bigger a club… of course he would want to leave Leicester!“Leicester are a very well-run club, but they’re not one of the big six clubs, and I think Rodgers wants something to prove with one of the big clubs.“And if he’d be backed by the board as Emery was in the summer… he’d he perfect, because we’re in disarray.“The others are Nuno Espirito Santo or Mauricio Pochettino.“The players had completely lost faith in Emery and his tactics, when you watch us defend it’s like trying to herd cats, and at least with Nuno Arsenal would have an identity, he has a philosophy of playing.“And why wouldn’t you try to get Pochettino? Just to wind that lot up, that would be funny.”Listen back to a clip of Perry Groves on talkSPORT abovelast_img
