The Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick said: “We are fully aware of the attention currently focused on the club and understand the debate. We respect that fans are entitled to their different individual opinions but we will always run this great football club with its best long-term interests at heart.
“Arsène has a contract until the end of the season. Any decisions will be made by us mutually and communicated at the right time in the right way.
Chips summarises quite succinctly how this will pan out. Thank goodness we have a board of people that run our club with their heads and not their hearts. Come the end of the season a scenario that the majority want, including myself, will come to fruition.
I posted an article asking for Arsenal fans to show Wenger a little respect for 10 weeks more but several felt that was overly generous. 10 weeks of restraint for 20 years is clearly an overly generous consideration…
Its fascinating that our clubs fans are diverse on multiple levels. We are all passionate about our club but we are not necessarily playing on the same intellectual pitch….
I’m intrigued by the amount of contributors who are keen to share their opinions challenging an articulate article yet are unable to present a detailed plan moving forward beyond “lets get the best manager, give him a bottomless pit of money and everything will be fine”……
Is it at all possible you’ve forgotten who the manager David Dein brought in was way back when? That bloke nobody had ever heard of……you know, the one that has won more FA cups than any other manager….
I have loved Arsenal for 46 years so resent comments about my dedication to the club. I was watching Terry Mancini et al when some of you were barely an optimistic thought of a leg over in your dad’s mind.
In 1998 I stood on the pitch at Wembley next to an artist I managed as he sang the national anthem and we won the double against Newcastle…….I’m an Arsenal fan.
I don’t denigrate any opinions you have but am asking you to show Chip and the board respect. They have a plan that will affect our club in a positive way moving forward.The banner-waving rebels are merely fleas in an incredibly large shoe..Banner wavers look more like Runway Three activists more than coherent objectors..
