To be fair to Arsene Wenger, the ultimate responsibility for everything that happens at Arsenal Football Club should not all rest on his shoulders, but that seems to be the way things have become in north London. Even when an imndividual player or the whole Arsenal team put in a bad performance it is the Prof that bears the brunt.
And it is also the Frenchman who has been left to sort out the mess that the Gunners find themselves in after the failure of another tilt at the Premier League title and then the drubbing away to Bayern Munich that puts the Champions League out of reach once again.
Even if the Arsenal board were to leave the final decision on his future to the boss, they should have the guts to make it clear that the current situation is not acceptable, but all the club’s top brass seem happy to absolve themselves and leave it all up to the man himself.
While this will infuriate a lot of Arsenal fans, I firmly believe that you will get the outcome you want anyway, as Wenger is going to take the exit door this summer of his own volition. It was not just his pride that took a pounding in Munich, but his steadfast belief that he could get Arsenal back to the top again.
He looked lost after the match. A beaten man weighed down by expectation and the failure of his best laid plans to come off. So don’t worry you WOBs, because despite the club dodging it’s duty to make a decision, Wenger will do what he thinks best and this time that means he will quit at the end of the season.
