Not doubting his managerial credentials but just have that feeling he won’t be great fit for the average NUFC fan. Hopefully he’s more charismatic than the few interviews I’ve seen him give but he seems very lacking in what the fan base usually latch on to. The Geordie’s have always liked a charmer.

 

Personally would’ve preferred someone with no previous ties to a British Club but of all the ones who have then he’s clearly the best choice.

Not sure if he speaks much English to be honest, or he didnt when at Arsenal iirc

He spoke English throughout his time at arsenal.

 

People took the piss out of his accent with the lisp that a lot Spanish speakers get with speaking English.

Comes across similar to Rafa to me. We’ll love him if he gets the team grafting and achieves something.

That's good to hear. To be honest it would be a concern if he didn't speak English. I have no idea how it can work when they don't. Maybe I'm just a dinosaur though. :lol:

The last "charmer" we had was Pardew. I seem to recall us not being very fond of him😀

Didn't realise he actually orchestrated a 22 game unbeaten run early in his first year at Arsenal.

 

Sounds organised and meticulous with detail - basically exactly what we need. I was all in on Fonseca, and yes I'm probably blinded by the fact he isn't coming now, but I did touch on in an earlier post in this thread, not sure Fonseca would be a good fit *right now* due to having to basically change a team that's designed to sit deep into an attacking, possession based team.

 

Emery seems perfect for our current predicament and really good statement from the owners. Happy fucking days.

Only concern is how effectively he can communicate his ideas. Big part of his struggles at Arsenal were his ability to get across tactical ideas to the players, older professionals like Xhaka, Mustafi, Ozil downing tools then losing the dressing room, and a disorganised mess on the pitch come the end of his tenure. He did blood Willock, Smith Rowe and Saka though...

Just a nod of appreciation to the boy Craig Hope, who posted this back on 14th October. I think this was the first official link:
 

 

Will be good for all parties if Hope is the one with the inside line to the club. 
 

it’s a shame he works for the mail.

I think the squad as it stands are probably absolutely craving and dying for some detail, organisation and semblance of a proper plan. Two years of "let's play" and getting slapped on the back and fired up before kickoff probably does that.

Got to be better than Bruce throwing the ball in the middle and saying 'let's play'  the pissing off for a kebab

The northern-Spanish accent uses the 'S' sound we have in English a lot less, and the majority of the time is pronounced how we pronounce 'th' in 'thistle' for example. The rest of Spain and the Americas tend to pronounce it the other way and is more common. That's not to say they don't use the 'S' sound, but they will almost never lead a word with that sound so it's hard for them to form the 'S' at the start of a word like 'snake' and will end up saying 'esnake'. Spinach gets interesting, I'm always asking my wife when she's cooking it why is she spying on us when making dinner when she say she's cooking espionage (spinach) :lol:

Oh for sure, it's a massive upgrade and he's a proven winner. Just hope some of our less professional elements don't have too much sway in undermining him.
