In many ways Arsenal are a club divided at the moment. A strong section of the Gunners support believe it’s time for Arsene Wenger to part company with the club he’s been so successful with in the past, and they certainly have a point. No silverwear in nearly ten years is hardly an achievement, even if they have qualified consistently for the Champions League in the mean time.
The other half the the Arsenal support fear change, and it’s certainly true that the Londoners could be worse off without their french coach, and there are little who know the club better than Wenger himself, a man who personifies much of the Arsenal philosophy.
But if Wenger is to stay on at the Emirates, things need to change. Fans want more than just a top four finish, they want to be The Invincibles again. Wenger needs to start aiming higher and taking the game to his rivals rather than accepting that the club is not what it used to be.
Whether Wenger will get the sack remains to be seen, and whether he will change his ways even if he does stay on also seems unlikely.
But something has got to give at Arsenal football club, else they will remain in their malaise for the years to come.
