Absolutely nothing to look forward to is there. This is it under Wenger. The same predictable boring football.

That 2 second clip of Mesut shouting "**** SAAAAAAKE" at a Bellerin cross sums up our entire season more accurately than any article or rant on here could.

I never thought I'd say this but I think I actually want us to finish 5th. Just don't see how anything even starts to begin to change if we get top four again.

As far as continuity of manager/players is concerned I don't think it matters if we finish 4th or 14th!

I don't see Wenger ever stepping down on a 5th place finish tbh. Or ever really, think the board are going to have to man up and fire him to get him out the door. He'll come up with some guff about wanting the challenge of reclaiming a Champions League spot. Maybe the lack of Champions League money will jolt them into action, but then with the ridiculous amount Premier League TV money they'd probably give him another year to get back into that coveted 4th spot anyway. It's in no way a guarantee that finishing 5th changes anything.

I don't think I can face another season of this. I just don't enjoy watching this team play.

This will be the first summer where I have absolutely no optimism and expectations

Prob not going to renew my membership this summer, my dad is the same.

I don't think us finishing 5th will result in him leaving either

I don't think he'll leave if we finish 5th this summer. But I feel like that at least might be the initial catalyst for change in the long term, whereas if we finish 4th it will be all good and same again next season. Rumours of a new 3 year contract which is just horrific news if true.

The source for that was fake.

He'll walk if we finish 5th, I'm convinced of it

No way I can ee you finishing outside top 4. Norwich are fighting for their lives but I still expect you to win that comfortably. Villa is an obvious win. City is the real difficult one. Only danger you have of not getting in UCL is if you finish 4th and City and Liverpool win the European comps.

City would have to finish out of the top 4 for that to be a problem

if i was him and you ended top 4 still again i would call it a day realising my limit of where i can take the club in current context and letting someone have a crack but if 5th i reckon it would be a kick up the ass and wanting one last crack before contract over to try and end career on a high. at least if top 4 you can take a little tiny bit of dignity in knowing your time's up but to finish out of top 4 this season would be disastrous. not sure if that's nonsensical to have this contrasting approach based on t4 v 5th though :D

I think he should have quit regardless of how this season ended. Even if we went on a run after the Leicester win and won the league I feel like his time was up.

Wenger famously doesn't walk out on contracts although he's been with Arsenal so long not sure that is relevant. It really seems like the appetite for him staying is just waning. It really is remarkable how your seasons follows these patterns and that's with players coming in and out but same things happening

The Giroud stat is something that always seems to happen, an important run of games in which you don't quite have enough goals and striker(s) aren't scoring. I can understand fans having enough, it's not like it's one season and everyone throws their arms up, this has happened far too many times

I would always think I wouldn't see Wenger ever walk away but if there's one year left on his deal it'll almost be like sleep walking through the season with fans and players knowing he's potentially on his way. That never ends well for clubs so in that sense this is a good summer to leave but ... meh, I just can't picture it, would be surprised

We've got at least one more season of this. Another summer of inertia while our rivals strengthen, another season of frustration, a group of players who can't motivate themselves with a manager who can't motivate them.

I've never known in my lifetime to have such apathy in the fanbase. It's obviously not just frustration, it's clearly where things are coming to a head. I think in our last 2 home games it could frankly get a bit ugly. I never like to see the support affect the players, but for the greater good, a show of outright anger and frustration is probably needed.

It's amazing to think 6 months ago (October) we won all 4 of our Premier League games, scoring 11 goals and conceding only once, dismantling Man Utd in the space of 15 first half minutes and beat Bayern Munich 2-0

And now, here we are

Cech (6), Bellerin (6), Mertesacker (7), Koscielny (6), Monreal (6), Ramsey (7), Flamini (6), Walcott (7), Ozil (8), Campbell (7), Giroud (6)

that was the line up that beat city :( ratings are from sky sports :p

Highlights include that we've played well over the last 6 weeks (we haven't), we are the champions away from home (we're not) and it's the fans fault why we are so poor at home (it isn't).

The guy has turned into a *****.

"We didn't make the maximum of (H) results against lower teams. We analysed that quite well & know it's not down to quality of our game."

****. Me.

A link or something might be useful but I assume you're referring to this: http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11670/10262040/arsene-wenger-calls-on-protesting-arsenal-fans-to-back-team

This part is astonishing:

Wenger said: "We lost the championship at home against lower teams, but we played sometimes at home in a very difficult climate. Away we are championship winners.

"The club has very special values and one is to stick together and support the team - there is no success otherwise."

He can go **** himself frankly.

The fans fault \o/

Great way to win them back! Hopefully statement like this are making those higher up question if this is the way forward.

Ha! Would love to know what it was if not the "quality of our game". Pesky opponents not playing fair and rolling over for Arsenal to win it the way they want to :D

The man's just senile now, has far too much faith in his system and his players. Absolutely no chance anything changes at Arsenal with him still there.

He also had a go at (presumably) ex-players who have been critical of the current squad's attitude and if he is trying to claim that the current players have a better attitude than Henry then he is taking the ****. That squad of players didn't need to be motivated - they were self-motivating and it's obvious the current team is not. Even some of the current players have complained about it ffs.

He's lost the plot. I don't regret supporting him after the stadium was paid for - he'd earned his right to manage unencumbered by finances - but he's failed to improve us despite it and the stuff he says when under pressure makes me like him less and less.

Yeah he's completely lost the plot now. Surely he's not thick enough to realise this will turn the fans against him even more?

Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. Sometimes, life, like now, embodied by Wenger, would fit perfectly into a Shakespeare play :(

I'd like to think today's comments are the nail in the coffin for him, if the board had any spine they would be.

I am not old enough to know a time when Arsenal was without Wenger but I will be overjoyed for the new era when I read about his resignation, I have lost a feeling of interest as it stands. At this point, I think I would take finishing outside the top four if it meant his farewell. Hopefully I wake up someday in the next few months to his resignation.

I really hope Wenger writes a book. I know he is responsible for a lot of what has happened but I would really like to know how much the board played a part in it too. Worried that if Wenger goes but the board stays the same we still could be doing the same ****.

Same **** of what? Most of our failures are football technical issues, all of which are Wenger's direct responsibilities. Unless there's proof that Wenger is a baller, but we only signed Cech because the Gazidis couldn't close deals.

A sad state of affairs when I'm more interested in the protest than the result. Apparently it was quite flat and most people were chanting for Wenger to stay. Suppose fair enough if they're happy paying the most expensive tickets in Europe for 4th place, no progress and no chance of competing for the PL or CL.
