I don't know if you've noticed but we have yet to watch an Emery pre match press conference live transmitted on Arsenal.com.
This was a Thursday morning ritual under Wenger which we all looked forward to. But alas it is to be no more, until further notice.
This is so according to official Arsenal policy communicated to me after enquiring as to why we are no longer privileged enough to be partied to a live press conference as we have been accustomed to.
This is the e mail sent by me:
' ... about the live transmission of Unai Emery's conferences. Will arsenal.com transmit them live as in the past or has this been scrapped?
A lot of Arsenal supporters are asking us'
Arsenal Analysis blogspot
And the reply:
If any of Unai’s press conferences are going to be transmitted live then the website will confirm this in advance.
We do not have any more information regarding this issue at present.

So we just have to wait and hope.
But why this change of policy?
Does Arsenal FC want to make sure that Emery's English is not in any way misinterpreted before it is checked first?
If so I would hope that the press will be under the same restriction before publishing anything. However we all are able to read the live transmission of the conferences in the newspapers as it is happening....
