He should've bowed out after winning the FA Cup in 2014 with dignity & still a semblance of supposed "greatness", but no.

Now he'll be remembered simply as a fraud who got lucky by inheriting an excellent back 5 & Dennis.

By continuing he'll further highlight the contrast between then & now.

Spurs on a different level to us JJ and will be for a while, if you cant see that then fine.

Agree ref the players, under a new Manager wholesale changes wouldn't be needed imo, many just need a new lease of life, obv its inevitable that some will still want out etc and some are not good enough, Sanchez looks like he has had his head turned towards City and one or 2 might follow suit. If Wenger stays for another season or 2 then there could be riots in the London streets again Crazy

Boro really should have tried long balls and might have got more joy. We didn't look solid when they did even with 3 centre halves. The 3 at the back was just AW trying not to be predictable after Allardyce and Carragher both pointed out the 10 year weakness in the way we set up. It also indicates that he wants to try new things, ie he is staying Cry A few years late for that. The squad needs 2 or 3 transfer windows to progress and he's had enough time to sort out the weaknesses.

6 tough fixtures coming up, he must be praying for another cup final to make his announcement. Incredibly selfish man.

hilarious to read about hid supposed tactical masterpiece of 3 at the back to beat a team that cant score (and we still conceded)

he really will try new levels of spin in order to stay, even if it means kidding people into think that he will change

if he has discovered this new system why has it taken 21 years

Report jon b April 18, 2017 9:21 AM BST
I think there were some interesting points from last night,s game, after recent games when we,ve scored the celebrations have been at times quite low key and it was noted by some pundits too, then we have Sanchez/Theo who when subbed showed a bit of frustration with the decisions, goals last night properly enjoyed by the players and Sanchez left the field in a much more positive manner than he normally would even though there were only minutes left he hates leaving the park, and at the end it was like something big was achieved by these guys, the smiles were broad even by Ozil who never really smiles and Sanchez was like the cat that got the cream. I think these guys have been told to portray a positive vibe regardless, as it happened we got the win against a very poor team last night. I think the news is coming very soon, he cant wait till the end of the season can he?, if they somehow beat City Sunday which we know is not out of the question then I think the whole saga will end soon after, either way he must be staying, no-one can be that stubborn to string thousands of people along and wait till the last minutes to say he is leaving, its obv about timing and time is running out so he will clutch on until even a half positive result pops up, that could be this weekendSad

Blacky, Wenger is not waiting to satisfy all the fans, even he knows that isn,t going to happen with one win or a few between now and seasons end, if he was leaving surely that would of been announced by now, no reason to delay it, he is one for the unpredictable scenario for sure and it has been very hard to second guess him, that's what I'm hanging on to tbf but I cant see it happening unless the run in ends in catastrophic style. The problem we have and I cant see it happening either but the team is capable of beating City at Wembley, they are not all that imo and in a one off game on our day even when we have been so average all season long we can turn over better teams than us.
Report enpassant April 18, 2017 2:12 PM BST
The overboard reaction to the goals and win from the players were a little odd. I hope it wasn't some sort of calculated nonsense from above. I would relish the thought that the players had been told he is leaving and that is where it came from but that is wishful thinking rather than a belief.
If it was genuine and heralds a concerted effort from the players, who seem to not be playing for AW, until the end of the season, then surely something must have been said or done to provoke that (above and beyond the supporters reaction at CP).

and a lot will see this as the time to stop going though it will hurt them aswell

you can see by how hard it has been to sell tickets for the semi and the empty seats all over the emirates this season the way things are heading

and sadly if kroenke does take notice of something it will be this rather than the protests or results as all he cares about is money

if he resigns it will be mine and many peoples worst day ever as an arsenal fan and i just cannot believe it will be allowed to happen Sad
