Wenger could leave this summer following fan criticism

Arsenal’s hopes of claiming the Premier League title this season was left in tatters following an extremely disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of Watford at the Emirates Stadium in midweek and the Gunners currently find themselves a whopping nine points off of leaders Chelsea in the table.

Following the result, frustrated Arsenal fans have once again voiced their anger at Arsenal’s failure to mount a Premier League challenge and many are now calling for manager Arsene Wenger to step down when his contract ends at the end of the current campaign.

The Arsenal board want to keep hold of Wenger after tabling a new two year extension for the Frenchman to consider but the Daily Mirror have now gone on to reveal that the veteran boss could pass up on the offer as he no longer feels loved by the club faithful.

 

Trio doubts for Arsenal’s clash against Chelsea

Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday in a must win encounter for the Gunners in their title hopes but the North London side are likely to be without the trio of Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the clash.

Giroud was subbed off against Watford at half time and it has been suggested by Football London that the Frenchman was removed from the game due to an ankle problem. Even Aaron Ramsey was forced off against Watford and the Welshman will not be featuring this weekend as a result of his injury.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaced Ramsey in midweek but the Englishman suffered a knee problem recently and he could also miss out at Stamford Bridge.

 

Mertesacker and Welbeck included in Arsenal’s Champions League squad

The duo of Per Mertesacker and Danny Welbeck have been included in Arsenal’s Champions League squad for the knock out rounds of the competition.

Both Mertesacker and Welbeck had missed the first half of the campaign due to injuries but the two players have now returned to full fitness and will be available for selection for the Round of 16 clash against Bayern on February 15th and March 7th.

Agree with RE.Time for the board to take action,If you look at how many managers have been axed by MU/MC/Chelsea and Spurs,its surprising the fm can survive
for so long when the average lease of an epl manager is 2 to 5 years at the most.
I' m afraid the longer he stays,he risks bringing Arsenal to greater depths
.Arsenal are the 7th richest club in the world.It can be in the top 3 to 5 with a better manager who doesn't bother with pretty soccer.
I say thanks for the memories.Enough is enough after an eternity.

AW is analogue manager in a digital age. When he first arrived he was innovative but others caught up. Football moved on but he hasn't although it doesn't help that the board also lack any ambition as long at the club make the CL means they make money they don't care. Ideally we need a change of owners and manager!

Yes, agree with the fan who wants Gabriel and Ramsey to go. Gabriel is an accident waiting to happen and Ramsey too often blasts a shot at goal with no hope of scoring and when a simple pass might have given another player a chance more likely to succeed.

Ignoring the ignorant Chelsea fan's comment, it is time for Wenger to go. The team plays beautiful football, but each season now they get in reach of the title and then become complacent or lack the killer instinct. That's a matter of belief which is lacking at the top.

It is probably is time for him to go. Ignore the Chelsea fan's ignorant comment. Arsenal play beautiful football but lack the killer instinct and that comes from the top. Each season we get to a point where we could nick the title and then it all goes pear shaped. Complacency or lack of belief set in.

Former Chelsea striker hit the nail on the head when he said Arsenal's style suited the blues.The latter have beaten the gunners regularly in the cl and epl as did the former rf.
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that the gunners based their style on possession and endless passing.
All the opposition has to do is wait for th e gunners attack to break down or dispossessed and that's the cue for the ***er punch.So much so Drogba and Ronaldo scored tons of goals and why not with the generous acres of space time afforded.
So don't be surprised the gunners cant score against a ten men wall and get beaten. Of course it aint cast in stone the gunners will lose but frankly most gunner fans have given up on the fm to win the epl again.

Arsenal are just dog ***, pure and simple, no great calculations needed here. Even if you were 9 points clear right now you would surely bottle it so don't even bother mentioning how 'close' uv been to winning it in previous seasons, it's just jealous arrogance making your dumbass brain saying that. Your guna get absolutely spanked tomorrow and I look forward to hearing the tears from your fans hit the floor at the final whistle once again. What a torturous life all you gimps must really have!

WhY?The fans don't trust him anymore. Arsenal could have won at least 3 epl titles since 2004. Each time they failed when the finishing line was in sight on at least 5 to 8 times.
This is really unacceptable at a big club like Arsenal.
If he were at RM /Barcelona/Bm/Mu/Mc he would have been fired long ,long ago.
I say if he wants to go ,the board shd let him go. I say thanks for the memories.We need someone who would go direct and stop playing the endless passing ,back flick ,etc.
Whatever for? Fans come to see a winning team not an entertaining team that cant or wont want to win unless they walk l the ball into the net.
