A lot can still happen over the course of the current season, as we are still some way off the halfway stage and we have seen many times in the pst that things can change quickly in football. However, if things do not take an upwards turn then Arsenal are looking at a second season in a row without a top four finish and the Champions League football it brings.
Whether or not the Arsenal board will feel they have to act in that situation is unclear, but if the manager himself decides that he is no longer the man to take the Gunners forward then the Arsenal fans who have been increasingly frustrated and demanding of a change will finally get what they want.
Perhaps a trophy to0 celebrate would help, especially if it was the Europa League because that would get us back into the elite European competition, but there is not too much confidence that this Arsenal team will have any silverware at the end of this campaign and in a Beinsport interview Wenger sounds to me as though he could finally be starting to see that the club needs a change at the top.
The Frenchman said, “I will sit down with the board every end of the season and see where we go from there. I have a two years contract, I will always try to go to the end of my contract but I will always have the honesty to sit down with the board and to see where we go from there, so it’s quite simple.”
Is this just another platitude from the boss to keep the fans from revolting or do you believe that he really would quit if the season pans out as many of us fear?
