There is an increasing number of JustArsenal readers that want Wenger replaced, but it seems that the biggest argument is based on whether he should go now or wait until the end of the season. So at the end of this article we will have our own poll to find out what our readers think- I’m afraid Gunner T will not be able to insult everyone any longer as he is now under moderation, and anyone else using playground tactics will be joining him. So PLEASE can we have some sensible discussion without resorting to swearing and insults..
68% of Arsenal fans have run out of patience with Arsene Wenger, according to Ladbrokes.
A poll of 400 fans run by Ladbokes News reveals that only 32% of those asked wanted to persevere with the manager, with the remainder keen to see a new man brought in to revive the fortunes of the Gunners, who now find themselves out to 40/1 for the title.
The shortlist for his replacement should offer some hope to disgruntled supporters, with Jurgen Klopp the 12/1 favourite from Pep Guardiola and Ronald Koeman at 14/1. Everton’s Roberto Martinez, who has previously been favourite to fill the Emirates hot seat drifts to 20/1.
There may be some light at the end of the tunnel yet however as the bookies rate Arsenal as odds-on shots at 1/2 to finish in the top four again this season.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Arsenal fans’ patience is clearly wearing thin. We expected the survey to be closer, but it seems Wenger’s supporters are very much in the minority despite the betting suggesting he should steer them to another top four finish.”
He added: “The list of replacements is a who’s who of top European managerial talent. We can’t imagine too many fans would be upset if Klopp came in to replace Wenger.”
