Everybody is sure to know the Arsene Wenger situation by now, so it’s fair to say that there is no need to go into the nitty gritty details of it. But Arsene Wenger is at a point in his Arsenal managerial career, where his future remains very uncertain. This could be the final campaign the Frenchman holds control over Arsenal, and should he leave the club at the end of the season, of course the club will look to quickly identify a replacement.
Arsenal have been accused of lacking leadership following their self-destruction in midweek, and their lack of permanent captain is proving frustrating.

The last few days have shown the vast amount of anger and disappointment that the majority of the fan base has against the team at the moment. The Arsene Wenger situation has often divided the fans in the past, but I don’t think the fans have ever been so united in wanting Wenger out at the end of the season.
