The thing to remember with Unai, is that he's already been approached by a 'top 6' premier league club with a fan base that 'expects' success, and which wouldn't tolerate someone building a team and going through the associated transitional process.  It did not go well.  He's been there. Done that.

He knows full well that a move to Man Utd is not a "five-year project", regardless of how it's sold to him. It's 12-18 months to show significant improvement, or get the sack.  He's not getting time to rebuild that squad in his own image.

The only way he's moving is if he agitates for it, and I simply do not see that happening, given the infrastructure he has established around himself here.  It's not like the financial rewards would be THAT much more, surely? He's on £5m a year with us, and will probably get a raise if we qualify for the Champions League, so he's one of the top paid managers already.

Emery will not leave Villa this summer to go to the manc reds.

Yeah, I wondered about that. How/when can you have 3 team meetings the day of a game?! Or are they all bite-sized briefings (team hotel, bus and changing room?) 20 minutes each cos footballers are thick as pigshit?

Bet it was all boring tactics and stuff, instead of motivational gems like this.

That's the worst thing I've ever seen. One minute long and I couldn't finish it.

I mean to say, props? Fucking props? Unendurable.

The props reminded me of Smithyís best man speech in Gavin & Stacey which was equally as bad.

He's just a mini, albeit crapper version of Guardiola.

Nothing... and I mean nothing... is as bad as James Corden, and I can't stand Arteta.

JFC what was that, a desk out of a magic bag. It was completely Brentish. Another season for him with nowt to show for it.
The latest episode of the Villa Podcast, post Sundays win at Arsenal, does a brilliant overview of  how the Arsenal fans canít bear the idea they treated the serial winner and great bloke in Emery, badly. Instead helping to propagate the continued idea this eejit is a good manager.

Funniest thing about the lightbulb chat, was that they lost that game 2-1.
