More Consistent Than Arteta
a long serving manager like Wenger doesnt leave suddenly .. the last 2-3 yrs were a transition period and he let go of his responsibilities one by one .. and by december it looked like the new committee was ready ... as shown by the very visible pics of them traipsing around europe to sign Auba.Perez, Xhaka and Mustafi NEVER looked liked Wenger signings. I never get into it too much because I don’t want to debate but they NEVER fitted in with his buying history. He even called Xhaka a box to box player.
Think he agreed to something that summer with the club. I agree with @Makingtrax on this part of our recent history.
