Arsene Wenger has been under increasing pressure this season with some fans even calling for this replacement.
Failure to deliver the title since 2004 has caused exasperation within the Arsenal fans and they have been calling for the board to sack the French manager. Banners have been displayed regularly during football matches to call for Wenger to resign.
However Arsene Wenger has been receiving backing from both his current and former players stating that he is the best man for the job.
Remi Garde became the manager of Aston Villa back on November of 2015 as he replaced Tim Sherwood but even though the French coach has only been in charge of the Premier League club for around 4 months, he is already on the brink of getting removed from his managerial position at Villa Park.
Aston Villa’s latest result saw them losing against Swansea City with a final scoreboard of 1-0 in favour of the home team and this is the 6th successive defeat for the team of Remi Garde as they continue to struggle trying to secure triumphs on a consistent basis.
Aston Villa were given the humiliation of having to go through the replay in order to beat League Two outfit Wycombe Wanderers in the third round of the FA Cup.
Even going out and creating a major shock would have been better for the Premier League team, who appear to be going downhill with every week. Frenchman Remi Garde was brought in as the replacement for Tim Sherwood, but his arrival has done little to improve performances.Garde has tried various managerial techniques in order to get his team going but in vain. He recently lashed out at his players after the 2-0 win against Wycombe.
The season is almost approaching midway, but Aston Villa have managed only one win in the league so far.
This disastrous form sees them already cut off from the 19th placed team in the Premier League – Sunderland. Remi Garde was brought into improved results, but almost no positivity has been experienced by the team since he replaced Tim Sherwood in November. It remains to be seen if any arrivals in January will help the team. For the time being, the manager has to place his belief on the existing group of players. One of the promising names in the squad is Ghana star Jordan Ayew.
Leicester City continued their unbeaten run with a 1-1 draw against title challenging Manchester United. As a result of this point, they have also kept their own position in the top four.
It would have been unimaginable only six months ago when Nigel Pearson had guided Leicester to safety in remarkable circumstances. The club appeared doomed for relegation at this stage last season, but an amazing run of form in the last three months of the season saw Leicester City stay up.
Scott Sinclair believes that the anger that Villa supporters showed the other day after the team lost versus Stoke City was understandable as they deserve a payback for all the love they pour on to the team.
Despite the odds we found on the Sky Bet mobile app pointing to to the probable result, the supporters were nevertheless absolutely furious to see the Villans suffering their 6th defeat in the season a couple of weeks back.
Aston Villa received a major boost with the news that captain and midfielder Fabian Delph was snubbing the offer from Manchester City to stay at Villa Park.
The England international has been linked with a move to City for around £ 8 million – the release clause in his contract. Delph only signed a new contract only back in January and he stated that he was going to be part of the club for a long time. However, there were rumours that the midfielder was undergoing a medical at City after the Manchester outfit activated the release clause. This rumour appears to have had some truth.
Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood says that he is feeling sick after watching his team suffer a 4-0 humiliation against Arsenal in the FA Cup final.
Villa were hoping to finally into the run of several decades without a FA Cup title by beating the gunners. They have not managed to win this title since the success in the 1956-57 campaign. The closest they have been since then was being runners up at the turn of the century and now against Arsenal. Despite being in a relegation battle for much of the campaign, Villa were hoping to create a major upset at the new Wembley.
Aston Villa might be experiencing a change in ownership within the upcoming months as the owner of the English club is believed to be interested in selling the club and Randy Lerner has been having meetings with a UK based group and a deal is edging closer but there is something that can turn into a roadblock for this transaction and it depends on whether or not Aston Villa remains competing in the Premier League for another season.
Aston Villa is only a few points away from the bottom relegation zone and if they do get relegated, the price of the English club will be slashed and cut down.
When the performances of a Football team happen to be poor over a long period of time, it’s the manager who takes the most of the flak, but, in Aston Villa’s case, it’s the hierarchy too which seems to be a tad responsible.
Randy Lerner, who bought Villa 8 years back in 2006, has never tried to get involved that much into the cub activities.
He does not even spend a lot of time in UK and many experts reckon that’s not the way to run a top class Football club.
Lerner might say that he has done things which people expect a good owner to do. He spent as much money as anyone else, brought in a young, creative manager and also gave him his full backing.
But, spending money and employing quality people does not mean that your duty as an owner is completed.
