6th place possibly?
Wenger leaving at the end of the season, Blimey and who are they going to get to replace him ?
Going to be hilarious when they get relegated next season.
Terrible timing. Joey Barton was available until a couple of days ago.
*new arsenal manager TBC* OUT!
Wenger back in
going to be hard to replace someone like that, despite what the out crowd reiterate .
* I have made this up and this is based on no authority at all but lets see how long it take to gain some momentum
i wouldn't be surprised if the people who've called for wenger's head regret it before the end of next season.
if you look at arsenal's performance for the 22 years before wenger took over you'll see rather more mediocre finishes than have happened since. and in that time - from 1974 on - there were many, many years without a trophy. fa cup 79, league cup 87, the league in 89 & 91, the fa and league cup in 93 and of course the cup winners' cup in 94.
West Brom fans moaned about Pulis for ages. And now look at them.
This is going to be great.
I have recalled the tale of the gooner I knew in the late 90s who ranted at length at how wenger should go NOW,. Wenger had only been in the job a month or something.
Said gooner got dismissed and had to leave the industry after head butting someone over an Arsenal based argument at a black tie function. he is probably happy today.
i'm gutted because i'd rather be there or thereabouts each season, and for us to be in sixth or seventh and challenging for a european trophy on our off seasons. and i don't believe the current arsenal board have the footballing nous of david dein's little finger.
Sol Campbell is signing the contract this afternoon. One of the greatest minds in football you know. Champions League qualification next year, followed by several years of bossing Europe thereafter.
might get theresa may for one season but she'd simply capitulate in europe
the way i'm feeling reminds me of the day in 2001 when sol campbell signed for arsenal. i went up the auld innisfree on ballards lane for my dinner, liquid as i recall, and nearly had a pint poured on my head by a spurs fan who drank there and didn't welcome the news. i know now how that spurs fan felt, a bit of a kick in the gut.
he's likely dead now and the pub's gone anyway.
Good riddance! What did Wenger ever do for Arsenal, eh? eh?
A shame it has ended like this, but he leaves with a glittering array of accomplishments that every manager (and every human being) would be proud of - league titles, FA Cups the unbeaten season, being hated by Piers Morgan.
tbf it could still end with his first European trophy.
Terrible season that would be - Euro trophy, Champs League next season, awful.
It's the Intimate Island Inn now!
i'd like to say the moss is still the moss but of course it isn't, been the auld elephant inn for years now
If you looking for consistency, Toolans is still Olivers II, really!
there's the pub of a thousand names that's now the bohemia, wholly inconsistent.
I love The Bohemia!
i've nothing against it. always more of a moss / torrington / tally ho man myself tho. think the last time i was in the bohemia it was a firkin
and now the moss is the elephant, the torrington's a fading memory and the tarty whore's under new management. miss the auld cockroach, the coach and horses, too.
d'you recall the saturday night entertainment, before the foul arts depot was built, when there was a really good fight by the auld bus station? before that man was killed by a van, anyway, that rather put an end to it.
I do. I was in the Coach and Horses the other week. My kids had a party there. 'Kidscape' it's called now
Anyway, who Spurs get now Poch is coming to us?
