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.

Would hate to have to support them.  Bunch of fancy dans.
I'll have a shower and then phone my brother up

The problem is there aren't enough fancy dans.

Playing Elneny and Xhaka is just asking for trouble, there is no need for both and it weakens Arsenal considerably. Add in the fact some players just aren't very good like Walcott, Gabriel etc and it's no wonder they're struggling.

Fcuk up about Walcott. He's our captain.

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
                         But O heart! heart! heart!
                            O the bleeding drops of red,
                               Where on the deck my Captain lies,
                                  Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
                         Here Captain! dear father!
                            This arm beneath your head!
                               It is some dream that on the deck,
                                 You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
                         Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
                            But I with mournful tread,
                               Walk the deck my Captain lies,
                                  Fallen cold and dead.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

When Konscielny went off against city they played the second half with no captain. Clearly just a mistake but it speaks volumes. Today was an incredible low. Pounded off the park by Palace

Not at all. Arsenal fans have got what they wanted. All the reasons they wanted Wenger out, and they don't even need to get rid of him.

Sick of finishing fourth
Don't even care if we are mid-table for a couple of years
Don't want to qualify for Champions league just to get knocked out in the last 16

Done. Fam
Hasta la victoria siempre

Tottenham are the fancy dans . 15/15
the Arse are the hard workers. 4/15
