    Starting to understand why turned down Real Madrid and Bayern and PSG in the past. He likes to project himself as a miracle worker, a guy who overachieves with limited resources and for about a decade, he was successful at that. But he failed to take the next step as a manager and now he'll never be considered among the elitest group of managers because of his fear of failure at a club where there are serious expectations.

    I used to think there was something wrong with him. Senile perhaps. But now I just think he's being disingenuous for selfish reasons.

    Won't waste any more of my time posting about him or this mess of a team.

    I've watched over 1000 Arsenal games with him as manager. Do you know what? I've got a pretty damn good idea actually :lol:

    I think rather a lot of us have actually, but not in the stadia.

    Yup I've been saying it for months. He doesn't want a challenge. He wants the safe comfortable paycheck at Arsenal with virtually no chance at being sacked. If you go to PSG and they buy you Neymar and Mbappe then there is nowhere to hide if you don't win the league and the CL. You come in 4th with that squad and it's the door. You get bounced in the quarterfinals of the CL and it's the door.

    If he actually had any ambition he would have leapt at that job with those resources. You have a great chance to win the one trophy that has eluded you in the CL and be a legend at 2 clubs by putting PSG on the map as true European power. Instead he would rather cry about how hard it is to compete at Arsenal. He's a conman with low self esteem who deep down knows he can't cut it at the highest level. He would rather portray himself as a martyr than actually have some success.

    Like we all know that one person on social media who posts in detail about every struggle in their life because they're addicted to sympathy and they don't want to fix things because then the sympathy goes away. Well that's what manages our club now. A guy who would rather pretend to be hard done by than risk failing with a deck stacked for success.

    Playing Man City and then Chelsea to win, we had to beat arguably the best two teams. And we beat them well. There's nothing cushy about that anyway.

    We may have oodles of money compared to a Sunday league side but there are 3 teams in the league that can buy any player on the planet, you forget that.

    And it may be torture to you but that 4-3 Leicester game this season was something else. My brother-in -law phoned after the match, whose a Liverpool supporter, and said that was one of the most entertaining games he'd ever seen. And that's what football is . . . entertainment.

    If Mourinho came and parked the bus I'd stop watching even though I'm a third generation supporter.

    He wouldn't last a season at PSG or any other major club, and that is the truth.

    He has it made at Arsenal. Deteriorating position in the league, ruin the brand, alienate the players, demoralise the fanbase, get a pay rise.

    After 22 years being wed to this manager (until death apparently), I absolutely know what I've got, It's an abusive relationship and I want a divorce!

    I think we've all had long enough to weigh up exactly what it is we'll be waving goodbye to.

    "I had the chance to sign P.S.G."

    He should have just said that and we'd all have known what he meant.

    A great man who gave us 3 PL, 6 FA Cup titles, Unbeaten season and first CL final! Helped a lot with the transition from Highbury to Emirtaes by keeping us competitive with little money to spend!

    I'm very thankful for everything Wenger has done for the club but it will also be exciting to see more modern manager at the helm!

    So what are they supposed to say, we're fourth for squad cost and wages so don't expect us to win the title.

    That would impress the fans.

    Constantly failing your own targets doesn't impress the fans either.

    Very little money to spend heh. Enough to buy Xabi Alonso in 2009 though shame he rated Diaby and Denilson highly enough to believe we didn't need Alonso.


    Wenger has had a decent sized budget to spend since 2009 which could have pushed us on to become league champions but he preferred to keep faith in the substandard **** in our squad. Money was not the issue it was Wengers poor judgement that held us back.

    I'd have shed a tear if he went a couple of years ago, but not now. I'll look back at the good times because they were good personal memories, but he stayed long enough for his mask to slip and reveal that he's quite a self-centered man. Shame, but we ll have our faults.

    Don't think he needed to make the PSG thing public in all honesty, a tad unfair on Emery.

    He could have gone to a PSG where he'd be wanted, with unlimited spending . . . . the coward.

    Instead the he chose to stay loyal to Arsenal with limited spending, still wanting them to improve. . . . . facing all those angry fans in and outside the stadium, and those humiliating planes telling the whole world he's not wanted, and those social media posts from Piers Morgan saying he's worse than useless week in week out.

    What a coward.
