    They should be capable of doing it too - Atletico may be the favs but haven't been doing much to justify that billing recently, and then you'd have to fancy them to beat Marseille or Salzberg in the final - a final which is being held in a fitting place for Wenger to say farewell, back home in France at Lyon.

    Atletico are second in La Liga, above Real. I quite fancy Arsenal still, but Atletico have to start favourites. I agree about the final - whoever wins out of Atletico or Arsenal will be hot favourites.

    Despite my general goading of the #wengerout thing I hold Wenger in high regard and Arsenal were always my second side. This is part due to my justified irrational hatred of Spurs :D and also because Arsenal were the only side to consistently challenge Utd during the dark times of Fergie :cool:

    yeh, you might want to read that again. or change your 'the fans' to something more appropriate. because it's clearly not all fans who want him out, and he never lays the blame at the feet of 'the fans'. in any case, i think most arsenal fans will be sorry to see him go, and imo it's people who haven't been longstanding fans who haven't been attending games who are demanding he go. after all, if your season ticket costs in excess of £1k most people paying that much would make the most use of it they can. if someone researched it, i think they'd find it's the hipster fans who haven't been attending as people of my age can, as i've said above, easily remember years when arsenal haven't done as well as they have this season and the previous 21.

    my thoughts:I am sad that a great managerial career is ending on such a bum note - but I am also relieved - I will always revere his for his fantastic contribution to the club, but he has been past his sell-by date for two years now

    Nice selective quoting editor..

    I'm not an Arsenal fan but as a football fan it was pretty depressing watching the stagnation of a once great club under a 'leader' on millions a year who stubbornly refused to either spend the billionaire owner's cash or get the fuck out instead. He himself has earned £100m from the club. And won a couple of cups in the last ten years in a competition nobody really gives a fuck about. And then blaming the fans for pushing him out.

    oh, and through your dismissal of the fa cup you've demonstrated that not only are you not a gooner, you're not a football fan.

    I don't think we have much of a chance this evening. Just hope it is not too embarrassing.

    Have hope but not belief. :) Up the Arse!

    Shit, I can understand the ambiguity a lot of Arsenal fans had for wenger, but it would have been superb rounding his reign off with a trophy. :(

    Well generally speaking I'm happier with someone coming in who has actually managed a club with some European experience, while Arteta sounded good and I'm sure he's doing a great job but he hasn't actually been the 'manager'.

    What doesn't sound good is a £50M budget for new players, that's a paltry sum these days.
