    Would be sick to see what Wenger could do after one year break! Maybe that was all he needed.

    Come back now and give us 2-3 more years!

    Unlikely he'd get a top job. Maybe an oil club to set it up for a couple of years.

    He didn't need anything. He was excellent in his last season. When you consider that the board ****ed up resigning Alexis and Özil, leaving the squad in limbo for almost two whole seasons by failing to resign them earlier when it would have been cheaper, the work he and Sanllehi/Mislintat put into reshaping the squad, and what he got out of them for the six months he had them together, its really quite impressive. Almost invincibles level of play, also we only narrowly lost in the UEFA to an Atletico who have finished the last two seasons as runner-up in La Liga.

    Granted there were some poor results in the league but I believe that was partly because he was taking the liberty to experiment since we were already out of CL contention.

    EDIT: I really believe we would have pushed on had the board not panicked and Gaz took advantage of the fans discontent to sack him. I believe that Wenger had won the power struggle with Gaz the season before, hence the arrival of Sanllehi, and the change in how we handled our business. Not capitulating in the Sanchez deal, etc. Prior to that season we would have caved in and sold him at a cut price like Cesc and RvP, etc. This was the first season where we actually held onto our balls and got what we wanted. Sell High buy high. Previous to that it was always sell low buy low.

    Just goes on to show how important timing is. If he walked away after the first FA cup victory, no one could have said a word. The team would still have crashed and burned but instead of Wenger, someone else would have been blamed.

    I really think he didn't want that last renewal, but Özil, Alexis and even the board must have forced him to continue.

    Must be gutting for the big man that no top club has offered him a managerial job yet.

    Spent a year chatting about how he still wants to manage at the top level and the best offer he’s got is from Japan. Sad.

    it's seems he rejecting everything yesterday Lyon offered him a job to be with the board he rejected.

    say yes To VAR

    Quality of offers he’s getting must be quite eye-opening for him. Suppose that’s what happens when you lose a league title to Leicester.

    Hopefully he realises he’s finished at the top level soon and gives up this pretension of managing a serious club again. Can’t stand my man getting hurt like this.

    Would also open up the path for him to return here in an upstairs-role at some point.

    Still think he just worked to much and needed a time out.

    We should hire him again now after good break and see if he still has it!
