Arsene Wenger admitted that the uncertainty over his new Arsenal contract contributed to our spectacular mid season collapse, which ultimately saw us drop out of the Top Four for the first time under Le Prof, but hopefully that will not be happening again in the next campaign after he penned his new two-year deal.
It would appear though that the players are all very happy that Le Boss has stayed and are giving their full backing as Wenger tries to win back the title he hasn’t won for 13 years. Well, according to Alex Iwobi they are.
Iwobi said: “I’m backing Arsene Wenger to win the league title at Arsenal again. There won’t be a single player in our dressing room next season who will not fight for him.
“We’d run through brick walls for the boss. I’m pleased because he really is Mr Arsenal, isn’t he? He has made it the great institution it is today.
“He showed faith in me and gave me the opportunity to step into the first team after coming through the academy. Unfortunately, he has not tasted a Premier League title since 2004, but look what he has achieved in his time here.
“Even last weekend, he became the manager who has won the FA Cup seven times — more than any other. I’m happy he’s staying — so are the rest of the lads — because it’s good for the club, good for the team.”
Well if the players are all rallying around Wenger to go for the title, and of course Kroenke and Gazidis, then maybe us fans should do to. Protests won’t have any effect for the next two years at least so let’s “Support the team, not the Regime”
