Unlikeable? Yes boring at times perhaps but still arguably had the the 3rd biggest fan base behind United and Liverpool pre Wenger so there goes your unlikeable argument!

Also the stadium visionary was actually Danny Fiszman and not solely Wenger which elements in the media would like to portray. It's like Wenger built the Emirates himself.

If you charge the highest season tickets in Europe and cant even make the last 16 year on year (with no green shoots) then your fan base has every right to complain!!

Without the success and continued European money Wenger brought the new stadium was always going to be nothing more than a pipe dream. He then kept Arsenal competitive while the stadium debt was whittled down, leaving the club in quite a strong position for the future and all without any Middle-Eastern oil money. Ever other top team in England have lost their shirt multiple times trying to chase shadows in Barcelona and Madrid.

Lol pipe dream!! Arsenal have always had money. They were owned by English aristocracy as long as I can remember.

Poor Arsene has been paid a handsome 8.5 million a year for a number of years now.

When this 2 year deal is announced there will be a serious backlash. The players obviously know its in the offing, hence them downing tools at present.

The players have let their manager down many times in the past too. I'd be blaming them before I'd be blaming the lad who's already built his legacy. His only mistake was having too much faith in some of them. Them playing themselves out the door might be best for both manager and team.
