He is quoted in the Daily Mirror as telling a TV interviewer that that there is no doubt he will continue at the Emirates. Here is an extract from the article:
The interviewer asked: Will you stay or will you go at the end of the season?

Lack of physical aggression and attacking mobility are main problems for Arsenal! by Gooneristic Truth
I must say that what I find most hard to believe is that Arsenal fans were actually optimistic for a good result against Chelsea. I guess that’s what being a football fan is all about sometimes… Optimism! I remember telling a friend after the Liverpool beating that we should anticipate one or two more of such disastrous results before the end of the season. Not that I wish my team bad, but I am a believer of living within the confines of reality. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal players past and present, as well as fellow managers and all sorts of people connected with football, have been talking about Arsene Wenger and his achievements as the Frenchman’s 1000th game in charge of the Gunners approaches.

The Mirror has a page dedicated to Wenger where you can read the different tributes nad analysis of his Arsenal career. .......Read the full article here
Around about this stage of last season, Arsene Wenger was under more pressure than he had ever been since taking over the reins at Arsenal Football Club back on October 1st 1996. But that all seems long ago as the Frenchman affectionately known as Le Prof approaches the massive milestone of his 1000th game as the Arsenal manager.
Even though the Gunners title challenge has fallen away a bit in the last couple of months, this season has seen a rejuvenation of Arsenal’s ability to compete and that has put a real smile back on the faces of the fans. Things are looking good for Wenger and his players to get their hands on a trophy again and the future is looking bright with money rolling in and the Emirates stadium debt almost gone. .......Read the full article here
Wenger wants to take the Premier League chase right to the end! by Ash
You may be a little confused to hear that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants the Premier League title chase to last right until the end because surely if the Gunners could run away with it then that would be better, however we must take the more realistic assumption that perhaps Wenger now recognises we are no longer favourites.
“I hope it will be tight until the end, because then it will be interesting and if you are consistent then you have a chance to win. You need to be at your best to find the resources to win games, this is a big game for us and of course this weekend we just want to focus on the three points. We got the three points against Sunderland who are a tricky team, so we want to do it again. We have to look at our results, just focus on that and not speculate too much because we’re in a period where we have to move forward.”
Arsenal were top of the Premier League for most of the season and saw little movement between clubs in top spot between late October until early February, however since then our tough testing period of games has come and gone and its left the Gunners in a tricky situation. Considering that both Chelsea and Manchester City are major title rivals this season, it may worry you to know that although we are just one point behind Chelsea and two ahead of City, City do have a game in hand, which on current form they are more than likely to win. This means they would go top of the league on their extraordinary goal difference, with Chelsea in second and Arsenal in third. .......Read the full article here
With the title race hotting up, Arsenal are still hanging on Chelsea’s shirt tails, and with the leaders contesting a relatively easy game against relegation fodder Fulham, Arsenal really need to take all three points from this weekends visit to the Brittania Stadium.
Wenger is fully aware that Stoke can be hard to beat at home, but he is hoping that the two-day break he awarded his players will allow them to arrive fully refreshed. Wenger said: “Stoke is a big game for us. We have to focus on our results because we are in a period where we have to push on. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger defends his decision to give the players some time off! by Ash
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been criticised for allowing the Arsenal players to take two days off this week following the end to their hectic schedule. The Gunners played five times in just over two weeks and a half, four of which games featured playing some of the best teams in Europe. In the two week period Arsenal played in three competitions and faced Liverpool twice, Manchester United and Bayern Munich, all before a more settling 4-1 win against Sunderland last weekend in the Premier League. .......Read the full article here
The famous Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson, who has been involved with the club since 1963 and was a Double Winner in 1971 has no doubt that Arsene Wenger has performed miracles at Arsenal, despite not winning a trophy for the last 8 years.
Wilson said in the Independent: “I look not only Arsene’s great achievements when he first came,”
“It is about what has happened since then, with (Arsenal) building a new ground and all the debt that incurred, but still getting in the Champions League. .......Read the full article here
Every Arsenal fan and their dogs expected Arsene Wenger to buy a new striker last summer to complement (if not replace) Olivier Giroud, and that seemed to be confirmed by the Gunners interest in Luis Suarez, but nothing came of it and we got Mesut Ozil instead to calm the fans frustration.
But the fact is that Arsenal DID buy a striker last summer by the name of Yaya Sanogo, and after his impressive display for the Gunners against Liverpool in the FA Cup win (which earned him a place against Bayern Munich), it seems that Wenger is now preparing to make him a regular first-teamer. .......Read the full article here
At times last season, it really seemed as if Arsene Wenger’s days in charge of Arsenal Football Club were numbered. The fantastic finish to the season, which saw the Gunners catch up with and overtake north London rivals Tottenham, brought the fans back on side, as did the promise from Ivan Gazidis that the club would now be able to compete with the big boys in the transfer market.
The same anger and subsequent happiness occurred again in the summer transfer market and start of this season, when the signing of Ozil brought the fans back from the brink again. But the January window and Arsenal’s dip in form brought it all back again, and the negative, anti-Wenger comments have been increasing steadily over the last few weeks. .......Read the full article here
