‘Wenger In’ is the verdict, now let’s move on with our lives until Arsenal get knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage by Bayern Munich next season. Much like the upcoming general election, months of lobbying for change has come to nothing and large sections of Arsenal fans will be kicking themselves for getting their hopes up for so long.
It’s not all bad news though – this is Arsene Wenger we’re talking about, not a two-year extension for David Moyes. Wenger is still in charge for a reason and that reason is that large period in his Arsenal career when he could do no wrong which has long since been forgotten about.
Cast your eye over our breakdown of Wenger by numbers for just a few of the reasons to be optimistic. He has upped his haul of trophies to ten, he’s overseen victories in 57.5% of his matches in charge – seconded only by Sir Alex Ferguson – and although he may not be a pioneer of evolution in a football-sense anymore, he’s certainly flying the flag for innovative thermal wear when it comes to staying warm on the touchline.
