#WengerOut is trending now more than ever




8 Have your say

    Arsene Wenger is once again under increasing pressure after Arsenal have suffered 3-1 loss to West Bromich Albion at the Baggies home ground.

    Not only are the fans extremely frustrated, but have been for quite a while now. So the debate continues on whether the Arsenal legend will have his legacy tainted if he overstays at the Emirates – or will the fans back Wenger with #InArseneWeTrust.

    Arsenal fans have been mocked in recent years for being a fickle bunch. After some shock losses the fans turn on him, and during the Gunners’ winning runs they back him, they love the experienced one. As a more modern era of football becomes evident, sports fans become more and more impatient.

    Arsene Wenger is again under pressure to deliver.

    I do think that after more than 20 years as Arsenal manager and after a run where the title could’ve been held at the Emirates a number of times in recent years, I think Wenger should move on.

    It could take time to recover, as we all know, United suffered some rough patches after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. However, change can bring positives too. That being said, never underestimate the power of Arsene Wenger, he can produce something out of nothing and even though at this stage of the season and his career he looks a little exhausted, Arsenal still have one of the league’s strongest squads.

    Arsenal players look as though they’re lacking motivation and this could be due to tactical decisions and the way the team is being managed. Wenger is not entirely responsible for many of Arsenal downfalls, the players need to be responsible for their own errors, but everything can be traced back to a manager.

    I believe, whenever Wenger is sacked, or chooses to resign, he should receive a very grand send off. The man has brought loads of trophies to the club and managed the team to go 49 unbeaten.

    I do think at times the fans of Arsenal are too harsh. There is a reason they dub the Premier League as the worlds best, it’s because any team can legitimately beat any team. Only time will tell Wenger’s fate, but the next few rounds are crucial in his employment status at Arsenal Football Club.

    Do you think Arsene Wenger will sign a new contract?

      The fans are at war, the players are fighting between themselves and the clubs performance is declining.

      Wenger has come out and said “I know my future and everyone will know very soon”

      He should be releasing this ASAP, staying or leaving, he could settle so many arguments between fans/players and more importantly create some stability at the club.

      My issue isn’t with Wenger, but the board allowing him to act this way.
      He claims to care about the club, how is holding out this information and creating a toxic environment inside & outside the stadium “caring”

      What Wenger has done for the club is undeniable, he is a club LEGEND but in the past 10 years he has received over £100 million in wages and only delivered two FA Cups, but the flip side is, he has still made HUGE money with finishing top four, Quarters of champions league and semi’s of FA Cup.

      It’s a hard decision and you can see why fans are split, but watching Arsenal decline on the field is worse for me and to be honest, Wenger looks like a broken man!

      His replacement is a whole different argument and not a simple one.

        Ultimately, it comes down to what sort of club the Gunners (I’ll avoid the proper name so that I don’t wake up the mods) want to be.

        If they’re content with making the top 4 in the Premier League and the Round of 16 in the Champions League every year, without ever genuinely threatening to win either, and win an FA Cup every few years, then Wenger can deliver that.

        However, I suspect most of the fans want more. They want the Gunners to be genuinely challenging for Premier League titles and making deep runs into the Champions League. If that’s the sort of club they want to be, any fan who thinks Wenger can still get them there is kidding themselves.

        No doubt Gunners fans will be afraid that if there is a change in manager, there may be an initial slide like at Man U after Sir Alex. However, if the Gunners keep going the way they are going, I very much doubt they will win another Premier League title before Man U do.

      Not the coaches fault, players need to toughen up and be hungrier for success. Arsenal play good football but they have never managed to replace Patrick Vireia , They have lacked a good quality defensive midfielder and if you want success you need one and Chelsea are doing well cause they have Kante who fills that role.

      Plenty of clubs who would love Arsene Wenger’s services should he not sign at Arsenal. His future is assured.

      Firstly it’s difficult to win the EPL and The UCL. It’s especially difficult when your building a stadium and servicing debt. It’s difficult when you have you best players poached by other “bigger clubs”. It’s difficult when your club is concerned with running sustainably, sticking to budgets and not making the club operate as a loss like most top clubs in the EPL. He has run the club responsibly so that Arsenal will remain for years to come. At the same time he has won EPL titles although it has been a while. He has consistently made the UCL every year since his tenure. He might win another FA cup this year as well. Yes it depends on what sort of club you want.

      It is quite clear to even the untrained eye that the players have stopped playing for Arsene! He has lost the locker room. The players might come out publicly backing him, but behind closed doors it’s a different story. The man is stale and should look to move on, to benefit both parties.

      The Board need to come out and make a statement and take control. Either Sack him or tell him publically its his last year or if he is staying sign the contract and come publically and say it. I personally he should move and the Arsenal Football Club need to start a new era..it not Arsene FC
