    All being well, people will become Wenger's age.

    People will not magically change skin complexion.

    There is a difference, to be fair. As someone who has witnessed severe dementia first hand, comments like that don't bother me because I understand it is just exaggeration for effect. Then again, I realise people have a different level of tolerance for these things.

    Nothing wrong criticising him, I have been doing it all season, but insults related to his age, illness, mental decline etc are too below the belt, it’s shocking stuff.

    Some of you are scum.

    Mods don’t care. I won’t be posting on here again. I’m not here to read a Wenger thread where people continuously call him senile and have debates about potential dementia.

    I don't post here as often anymore partly because I am so sick and tired of lack of decency and the drivel being written by some here. This garbage about Wenger compared to Mugabe or senile is simply beyond the pale. That also reflects poorly on those who write that. Absolute scumbags.
    That is one thing to criticize the man for his football related decisions and that is totally fair game but the ageism and illness stuff is out of line and no different than racism or sexism as far as I am concerned.

    Because age has an actual impact on his lack of performance and is a legit griviance

    Erm no, saying he has dementia is ban worthy and comparing him to Mugabe. Don't downplay it.

    Adding my little grain of salt as a forum noob.

    Being behind a keyboard should not grant you automatic right to being disrespectful.
    As a rule of thumb, I would not want anyone to type to me something that would warrant a punch in the face from me if we were face to face.

    Nothing wrong in expressing frustration, but I know a thing or two about Mugabe. I don't care if it's exageration for effect, that guy was the worst kind of scum. Wenger certainly doesn't deserve the parallel.

    That being said, I'm fairly certain nobody here called Wenger "Mugabe" and "senile" to offend anyone on purpose. Just a very poor comparison, born from frustration.

    Didn't know that calling someone "an old man" is banworthy. This forum has lost the plot.

    FFS, are you serious? There's a bit of difference between old man and ****ing dementia, isn't there? **** me.

    Freedom of speech is not freedom of consequence.

    This is also a privately run website, there is no censorship. People who run it can do and impose the conduct they deem appropriate

    It's basic common sense, tbf.

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    Firstly, there is no such thing as 'griviance'
    Secondly, how does age impact his performance exactly. What bit about getting older disqulaifies someone from being able to manage an EPL team. Really, I'd like to know.
