    Playing the without that player you would be game is stupid, he is our player currently. You can pull players from any team and weaken them but its pointless as its not reality.

    It’s a bit disingenuous to keep suggesting the only thing stopping you winning the league is a special City side. You’re almost closer to Burnley than you are to City in terms of points, and your position in second is highly precarious. You could easily finish below Spurs and Liverpool and a couple of bad results will put you out the top four again.
    I'm not suggesting we'd have won the league, but had City had a 'normal' season we'd have certainly been in the title race, along with Liverpool and Spurs. There's nothing to guarantee we won't finish bottom of that pile, but at present we are not.

    If history is anything to go by, City are only going to get better. This may be the new normal as long as Pep is here.

    Semi-interesting rumours circulating this morning about the impact across the squad of the astronomical wages being paid to some of Arsenal's marquee players.

    On current performance, the £350K per week Ozil is picking up seems like a crime worthy of investigation by the Met. The £200K and £180K pw being picked up by Obameyang and Mikhitarian is only slightly less obscene. Little wonder the rest of the squad have had their feathers ruffled a tad. If Wenger walks, that's an almighty mess for the next manager to inherit.

    Meh. No different to every other big club imo. It's a marked departure for Arsenal, but when you're struggling and don't have CL football, paying big bucks is the only way to attract big players. There was always going to be an uplift for everyone else as a result.

    Mark Ogden with ESPN reporting Arsenal are eyeing up Low as Wenger’s replacement. He’s usually fairly accurate on United related matters but no idea what his track record is with Arsenal.

    Would be an interesting move for sure but taking on someone who hasn’t worked in club management since 2004 seems like a big risk.

    Isn't his club management record terrible as well?

    Arsenal could do with someone like Simeone if they could convince him as he builds his teams to be defensively solid before anything else. Arsenal fans may not like it though as its not always pretty.

    I didn't know there was a known list to be honest. I had just heard random talk of Rodgers, Jardim and Tuschel mostly.

    I wonder would Arsenal fans rather win the EL if it meant another year of Wenger or get knocked out and be sure of getting rid of him.

    Win. Fairly confident getting rid of Wenger would achieve little.

    Simeone would get butchered over here at present.

    "I don't give a shit if we're comfortably in the Champions League places and still in all the cups, how dare he try and stop the opposition from scoring as much.

    Moyes will be looking for work by then. Now there's a safe pair of hands.

    At this point the Wenger situation is so pitiable I just want him to achieve something, anything so he can bow out with dignity. :( Don't want to see him fired before that, and besides it will take years to turn this ship around and noone will be winning the league so long as Pep is around so I can wait.

    The Arsenal Supporters' Trust are set to meet with chief executive Ivan Gazidis this weekend to present findings of a survey in which 88% of fans who voted want the club to sack manager Wenger this summer.

    Fucking morons.

    If you did the entire fan base do you think the results would be massively different?

    What do you think would be a more representative percentage from anecdotal evidence?

    Edit: Genuinely asking, not contesting anything. The last few pages have shown how sensitive you football types are...

    It wasn’t the percentage I took issue with, it was the whole idea of “hey Gazidis here are some results from a survey”

    I mean Jesus wept who do the AST think they are.

    Fair point too.

    I think a more representative sample would show the majority wanted him gone but not that high. I reckon maybe 65%, tops. There are loads of people who don't surround themselves with the social media circus and just go to games because that's all they've ever done. I suspect until this season, most of those were quite happy for him to continue.

    Just out of interest, what do you think the percentage would be for purely long-term season ticket holders?
