The clear divide between the Arsenal fans on the subject of Arsene Wenger, also known as the AKBs versus the AOBs debate, is not being talked about nearly as much these days, mainly because the Gunners have ended our long wait for a trophy and are looking a lot more likely to challenge for the Premier League title.
Arsene Wenger has developed a reputation of only signing players at the last minute to try and get the price reduced, but according to the Arsenal CEO, Ivan Gazidis, they do usually try to get the signings done early if possible.
Good old Ivan Gazidis has come in for a lot of stick from Arsenal fans over the years, especially when he has made claims of Arsenal spending fortunes when we were actually selling our best players. On Friday Gazidis attended the annual meeting with Supporters groups and it seemed to have been very civilized….
As long as Arsenal do not mess up the FA cup final at Wembley later we will be able to look back with a smile on the season and look forward with real optimism to next season and the hope that the Gunners will improve once again and go from winning a cup competition to becoming the best team in England once more.
Ivan statement not too good for Arsenal’s morale by KM
Ivan Gazidis hit the press again, to say some things about where Arsenal are heading as a football club. “When we talk about the destination, it’s not winning a Champions League, it’s making fans proud,”.
As well as being great news for Arsenal fans who are looking forward to Arsene Wenger being able to sign more top class players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil before the start of next season, the recent words from the Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis suggest that the club’s hierarchy are no longer happy to accept that we are doing well to stay in the Champions League.
Not many Gooners could imagine Arsenal being as high as second in the League right now after our disastrous start to the season. Our usual horrendous injury list also disrupted the first half of our season, but since then we have gradually got our act together.
Wenger comments about Arsenal playing in the Europa League is the last straw by KM

There I am checking the usual sport news on the Daily Mirror and what do I see? A Wenger comment about how we should be playing Europa League as we have a better chance of winning it.
