Alan Brazil has cheekily suggested that the only football fans who love Arsenal manager Unai Emery are Tottenham supporters.
The Spaniard has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks, with his side currently eighth in the Premier League and eight points off the top four.
Reacting to a suggestion from Emery himself that he was still feeling loved in north London, talkSPORT pundit Steve Harmison said: “Where does he feel the love from?
“It can only be in the four walls of his house, because in the stadium of the Emirates, there didn’t really seem to be much love on Saturday afternoon.”
Responding to that claim, Brazil said: “There’s 100,000 Tottenham fans as well.”
? Harmy: “Emery says he is feeling loved. Where he feeling that from?”
? Alan: “Well there are 100,000 #THFC fans out there…”

Are Brazil’s comments justified?
At the moment, he’s probably not too far wide of the mark, truth be told.
Emery is hanging by a thread in north London, or so it would seem, and unless something drastic changes in the immediate future, it surely won’t be long until he is given the shove.
The widespread opinion from pundits seems to be that Emery is a man operating on borrowed time, with Paul Merson going as far as to suggest that his former club should try and snap up ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, as per Sky Sports.
Taking over from Arsene Wenger was never going to be an easy task by any means, but at best you could argue that the Gunners have stagnated under Emery, and at worst you would probably say that they look to be going backwards.
In that respect, Spurs fans must love seeing their bitter rivals stuck in such a rut, and it’s hard to envisage Emery being the one to drag them out of it.
