Wenger – I am staying at Arsenal

The record breaking 1000 game manager Arsene Wenger has decided to end speculation about whether he will be signing yet another extension to his Arsenal contract or not.

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:

Classic funny Wenger story from an Arsenal legend

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.

999 is not an emergency number for Arsenal boss

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.

Wenger hoping Arsenal are involved in tight finish for the title…..

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.
Arsene Wenger told Sky Sports:
“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.

Wenger admits that Stoke will be a tough fixture

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.

Arsenal legend says that League challenge is a Wenger miracle!

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.
