Well it all looks done and dusted as far as the BBC is concerned. The Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke had a meeting with Arsene Wenger yesterday and it was all smiles and handshakes between the two men that really run the club.
Although there are some members of the top table that believe it is time for a shake-up at the club, it seems that the Board are irrelevant to Wenger’s decision, and today’s Board meeting will only be to inform them what Kroenke and Wenger have already decided. The report also says Stan has already made it clear that his support lies with the Frenchman and he has pledged to back him in the transfer window to get the stars we need to win the Premier League title next season.
But there will be some changes to help appease the fans, although a new Director of Football is out of the question and the current Transfer Guru Dick Law will still be the overseer this summer, although a new Head Scout role could be created to help out.
There will be NO changes to Wenger’s control over the technical side of the Arsenal setup. It has also been revealed that an interview with Le Prof will be released tomorrow when the final decision will also be announced, although that is surely now 99% certain that Wenger will still be at the helm, the same figure that Wenger quoted when he was talking about the fans that still supported him.
So it seems that not much will be changing next season, but there will be some cosmetic changes to try and get the fans back onside. And hopefully that will include new contracts for Alexis and Ozil, and also two more superstars brought in to complement them next year.
Would that be enough to stop the protests?
