    So you fell out of love with him as soon as we moved stadium and had to pay off debts, which compromised our ability to compete?

    That’s exactly when I fell in love with him, 2006-13 were our golden years.

    So you didn't love him from 1996-2006 then :lol:

    No. I respected and rated him as a top manager but 2006 onwards is when I become invested to a point where it became unhealthy ultimately.

    Lets be real here. Wenger is Arsenal. He is the heart! There is no beating heart anymore in Arsenal. Lets put the heart back in!

    The 2007-08 team was my favourite post invinsible team. The fact that Arsène built it without spending barely anything was so impressive.

    Yeah, lets sink further down the table before we get a manager who specialises in top4 finishes and FA Cup wins.

    Would be incredible. But I don't think for one minute he'll come (if he's any sense, which he has).

    Wenger hugging Walcott and Iwobi the last players who truly understand Arsenal way of playing!

    Love to see it!

    He stayed on too long and was too stubborn near the end but bloody hell, this is revisionism.

    If you can't recognise just how much Wenger did to keep us in the top 4 during the lean years immediately pre and post the move to the Emirates, you're just burying your head in the sand.

    Staying in a 38000 Highbury just wasnt an option if wanted to compete.

    We struggled to finance the move - to the point where when we did finally find a willing financier there were two conditions - Wenger stayed on and we retained a substantial balance on our account as collateral.

    If the debt alone wasn't handicap enough, shortly afterwards the worst financial crisis since the 20s hit and the projected profits from the Highbury development looked increasingly at risk.

    Add in the oil money that hit the league in a big way around the same time and Arsène wasn't so much operating with one hand tied behind his back but trying to juggle while wearing a straight jacket.

    The fact we didn't crash and burn during that period is very much to Wenger. In much less challenging circumstances, other clubs form had nosedived after a stadium move. Wenger navigated this and a perfect storm of restricted spending and increased competition in a way, few of anyone else could have managed. Was an incredible achievement.

    In later years he might have struggled to adapt to new tactical environment and to the obscene amounts floating around in the game but by God what he did in those tough years can never be overestimated.

    TLDR: Many reasons why he shouldn't come back but 'king hell :D
