Think it will be a more philosophical read, rather than the gossipy, bitter and self preserving football autobiographies that we normally get.

Im guessing he’ll mainly focus what has moulded him, his ideas during management and what visions he has of the future.

He won’t criticise any Arsenal employee of the last 30 years.

Guessing your pages will be stuck together after the first read?

There's always the possibility of him having signed non disclosure clauses in the contracts. There should be at that level at least.

Doubt it as he’ll be talking about the run up to his departure from Arsenal. I’m sure there will also be talk of money, budgets, post Highbury restrictions etc.

Wish this was out now, think it will be amazing...as others have said, don't think he will be having a go at any players, even the ones that left the club under a cloud, really wouldn't suit the man if he did tbh.

It will show the difference Arsène and Fergie too...Ferguson's books were all about how much he hated Beckham's wife and making fun of the way Jordan Henderson runs...while Big Wengz will be discussing how he battled racism, to help mould a player that eventually became president of a country...levels to them as people really.

Fergie was always rougher than Wenger.

He was winner as a person,but also had some controversies and was kinda sore loser.

Hopefully there's a chapter on the summer of 2011. Or at least some insights on our failures in the transfer market.

Lovely stuff. Hope this will be an honest read, rather than the usual rubbish chest-thumping sports bio.

Tbf I love a bit of gossip, the constant verbal batterings of Roy Keane and Rooney were petty but must read stuff

£22.44 Pre order. Cheap at twice the price.

Will put in on the shelf with Moonwalking with Einstein, The Theory of Everything, and Football for Dummies: everything that Wenger haters need to learn to understand the game properly.

Can just imagine some numskull like DT reading it where Wenger goes into great detail about the financial difficulties he faced at the time post Emirates move. Of course DT failing to comprehend what he's reading just starts shouting "WHY DIDN'T YOU SPEND SOME FACKING MONEH?!??!?" as he's giving his wife the @GDeep™ special
