It has been a poor run for Arsenal – only one win in five in the Premier League, as well as demoralising defeating in the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich.
As it stands this afternoon, we are 5 points behind 4th spot, but have a game in hand.
So where do we go from here?
The number of Arsenal fans that want Arsene Wenger out seems to be increasing by the day. But as I’ve said a million times, getting rid of Arsene Wenger is not the answer:

The problem is with the Arsenal board.
Do people have short memories? Have people forgotten what’s happened up North at a place called Old Trafford?
Sir Alex Ferguson departed Manchester and look what happened? They struggled badly under David Moyes, had limited success under Louis Van Gaal and under Jose Mourinho? Well apparently they’ve been on this amazing unbeaten run but where are they? Oh yeah that’s right, they’re still below Arsenal – and in 7th place no less.
Do Arsenal fans really think getting rid of Arsene Wenger is the answer?
Any other manager coming in would do worse than Arsene, that’s guaranteed. If you want to win the Premier League then you’re best bet is with Wenger at the helm.
He is not a stupid man and is his own worst critic. He doesn’t need fans to stage disgraceful protest and be given vitriol during matches. He knows the problems the club has and will address them this summer, no doubt.
It’s clear some players have let him down and whereas in the past he might have had to put up with this crap from the players, now he’s in a position where he can get rid of the dead wood.
Arsenal have the money to compete and Arsene knows where to strengthen the team. It’s clear from his interviews and overall demeanour this season he’s had enough of the shit he gets from fans but also the mistakes certain players keep making. He knows his time is almost up so that’s why next season, he will go all out to make sure it is a successful one.
Next season he has everything to lose so you can be sure Arsenal will win the Premier League next season. He is well aware that Arsenal haven’t won the league since 2004 and his last act is to leave on a high – and that will be to win the Premier League before announcing his departure.
In the past he has been restricted but next season will be our time – the handcuffs are off and next season, Arsene Wenger will mean business.
