A home draw in a game you really need to win, even if the opposing side are a good one, is hardly enough to scratch the surface of the disappointment and frustration that has built up in Arsenal fans over the course of another faltering season in the Premier League and Champions League.
The fact that it has been going on for so long and that the improvement we all hoped would come after the Emirates stadium debt repayment eased enough to give Arsene Wenger a good transfer budget has not come, but instead we seem to have moved further from the EPL title and European glory, has made the calls for the boss to be replaced all the more loud and the fans more united than ever.
So why do the Wenger Out protests appear to have fizzled out? There were a lot of empty seats at the ground for the West ham game but a protest planned for before the match was cancelled due to low turnout and we even heard some fans chanting the name of Arsene Wenger towards the end of our 3-0 win.
I cannot believe that a draw and a win against a side in terrible form has convinced every Arsenal fan that Wenger is the right man to lead us on, but what I do believe is that the years of our club ignoring our complaints and using us as cash cows have prepared the average Gooner for disappointment.
To be honest, I expect the board to give Arsene a new deal and for him to sign it, but am I happy about it? Not at all and I reckon a lot of you feel the same way, so do we just accept it quietly?
