‘Arsenal boss will stay on with no pressure to leave’

West Ham chief David Gold has claimed that there is no pressure on Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to leave the club, despite the recent fans revolt. The Gunners’ boss is out of contract this summer, and has declared that he will make a decision on his future ‘soon’. That was said three weeks ago however, and there appears to be no announcement set as of yet.

Our bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League competition has since taken a turn for the worst, with Crystal Palace piling misery on our side with a 3-0 defeat, and we now have a mountain to climb to make the top four.

Despite fans uproar this term, and the continuous calls for Arsene Wenger to step down, West Ham chief Gold doesn’t believe there is any pressure on him to call time on his reign.

“I don’t really think Arsene Wenger is under serious pressure for his job,” Gold said.

“The man has been there 20 years and everybody knows how he works and I think if he wants to stay that will be that.

“He will stay. The Arsenal fans are a bit like Manchester United’s – they believe they have a right to trophies. They expect to win everything so this is very difficult for them.

“I think Arsene Wenger will be OK. He will weather the storm and I don’t accept there is some sort of dressing room revolt going on.

“He has been there long enough to know how to sort that out.”

Is Arsene Wenger really just ignoring the fans protests? Was his recent claim that the fans wishes would be considered when signing a deal a lie?

    No we don’t believe we have a RIGHT to win trophies

    We just want a manager who knows what he is doing. A manager who knows the right players to get. A manager who will get the best out of our players. A manager who will play players because they deserve to play not out of Loyalty

    Wenger has become Boris Johnson

    Wenger loves the attention no doubt. The focus is on him and how he loves it. It’s about Arsene not Arsenal. He couldn’t stand the Arsenal being more successful with a different manager. I wonder if they offered him new contract making 3 million less per year based on team performance if he would sign it.

    We as fans don’t believe we have a right to win trophies WE believe we have a right to challenge for trophies
    And seeing as we pay possibly the 4 th Highest amount to watch surely that means we should be the 4th most successful

    Yet we struggle to get out of the last 16 CL and struggle to make even the top four in our league

      We have the highest season ticket prices in Europe, that’s one thing we’re top in.

  4. ArseOverTit says:

    Highest tickets in Europe, promises that we would complete with the best. Highly paid players and manager.

    Yes we deserve to compete at the highest level and win trophies. Otherwise what is it for? Solely a money making enterprise..

    The situation at Arsenal is known far and wide!….

    When people from other clubs can see what’s on ground and tell you what’s up, then you can be sure it’s TRUE..

    This one’s coming from David Gold of WestHam….. Aha!

  6. Ed the red says:

    We have no right to trophies is correct but we deserve a team to play for the badge which I have seen over the last few games the team have gave up on wenger. We deserve a manager who is tactically aware with a game plan,plus can buy players and play them in their rightful position these guys don’t look like they know what they’re doing.

  7. Arsene will definitely stay and manage Arsenal FC for Thirty more years. He cannot move of on to any other club because all other clubs in the world want to win trophies. Tell me which other club in the world can pay him Nine million pounds just for counting other club’s trophies and making excuse after excuse. Jose Mourinho can be easily forgiven for saying that Arsene has the easiest job in the world. Which job on this planet can be easier than scouting for mediocre players, sign them, give them one game plan for all sorts of games, get glued onto your chair and watch them walloped 8-2, 5-2, 6-0, 10-2 blah blah.. Then move of to blame refrees, a busy schedule, reluctant fans, the zipper on your jumper…and then wait for the next season to repeat the same errors while expecting different results? Disgusting to say the least.

  8. gmv8 says:

    It not that we expect to win trophies, but we expect the players to put in the effort, and if Wenger is unable to adapt the teams tactics to the opposition, then hire someone who can.

    Why is David Gold piping up all of a sudden? His West Ham is going down the toilet ever since Payet left. He needs to concentrate on his own club. Arsenal fans believe in a manager when he clearly has an idea and tactics of how he wants his team to play. I seriously believe that Arsene is waiting for the right time near the end of the season when we start winning games to say he is staying and he’s expecting a parade of fans screaming his name in delight whilst he waves on to another 2 years of 8+million pounds a year pretending to overhaul the squad for the 13th time to win the league. Unfortunately that will happen at the Emirates because most of the fans there are behind him.
