    Who, Kroenke? I liked that part too. It's just a shame those 6 months felt like two years...

    Merci, Arsène.

    Another great quote.

    Have Tottenham closed the gap on Arsenal? Last time I checked they were still 4 miles and 11 titles away.”

    Merci Arsène, you always put a smile on my face.

    None of this possible without Wenger.

    If it wasn't for Wenger we'd be in the Conference North by now instead of the Europa League, 5th out of 94 remember that.

    94? Does that include the ghosts of Maidstone United (defunct 1900) and Bootle (defunct 1893) :lol:.

    A story from the brilliant book, The Mixer (premier league tactics from route one to false nines) by Michael Cox, perfectly sums up Wenger's astuteness at Arsenal.

    Anelka had fallen out with Overmars. 'I'm not getting enough of the ball,' he muttered to the French press. 'I'm going to see the manager soon because Overmars is too selfish'.

    The complication, however, was that Anelka barely spoke English and Overmars didn’t understand French, so Wenger was not only moderator but also interpreter, and played the situation beautifully.

    He asked the two players to spell out their issues; Anelka repeated his complaint to Wenger in their native tongue, while in English, Overmars claimed he always looked out for Anelka’s runs and didn’t understand his problem.

    Rather than translating their comments accurately, Wenger eventually told Overmars that Anelka had said he no longer had a problem, then told Anelka that Overmars was promising to pass more. Both were lies, but it resolved the situation."

    The goal Barcelona at their peak would be proud of. Still stunned by it

    Peak Barcelona were a good possession team but the true tiki taka goals came from Wenger Arsenal teams!

    Merci Wenger. A true artist!

    White lies are the bedrock of any successful relationship! Wenger knew that. ;)

    The best artists can use lies to reveal the truth.

    Thanks @Makingtrax and @blaze_of_glory. I'm off to announce that Xhaka and Mustafi (and others) are some of the greatest players to wear the Arsenal shirt.
    On a serious note, I still miss Wenger. I'd love to sit and watch us live on TV with him.
