Arsenal fans have contributed £2000 and counting towards a crowdfunder for a campaign to force manager Arsene Wenger out of the club.

I had never heard of football fans using crowdfunding to get rid of an unpopular manager.

But hey, only 200+ of you trying to out-shout 59,800 inside Emirates.

As long as Emirates' attendance is still hovering around 50,000 to 60,000, Silent Stan will just ignore the fans and it is business as usual for Arsene Wenger.

Now, if the crowdfunding surges to £30,000 and counting, with every anti-Wenger fans contributing £1 ....

Arsenal assistant manager Boro Primorac set to leave Arsene Wenger after 20 years by his side for Turkish adventure

Arsenal assistant manager Boro Primorac has been Arsene Wenger’s right hand man for 20 years.

Primorac joined the Gunners with Wenger when he first took over the club in 1997 from Japanese outfit Grampus.

Look like rats are beginning to jump off the sinking SS Arsene Wenger.
One more indicator that Arsene Wenger is leaving.

One of the reasons why Arsenal FC tactics are so dogmatic is due to this dinosaur.

It was alleged that Max Allegri had given Arsenal FC a 3-week period to make up their mind before he decided to look elsewhere should he decided to leave Juventus.

EPL is the richest league and the place to get global exposure that every successful manager wanted by managing a Big 4 English club.

All the big names are here, associated with all globally well-known club, bigger than any Italian clubs living on their past glories.

1 - ManU - Mourinho
2 - Abu Dhabi City - Guardiola
3 - Chelski - Conte
4 - Liverpool - Klopp

5 - Arsenal - ???

Whichever you look at it, Arsenal vacated manager post is a plum job for any well-known manager to put their stamp on a club who is famously patient with their manager, as long as they maintain the bottom-line and grow revenues.

Apparently, football managers are not considered successful till they manage an English marquee club or the Big-2 in Europe - Barca and Real.

Barring Barca and Real, even managing Bayern Munich or PSG is not as prestigious as managing the Big-5 English clubs.

More a case of ships leaving a sinking rat



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Primrose leaving is a big loss. He has played such an understated role in our development as a club under Wenger in the first ten years.

Wenger once said he can never work with a Director of Football.

If one is going to appointed, it meant that Wenger either on his way out or Board decided enough is enough and a long overdue overhaul on the coaching structure is needed with Wenger solely concentrated on the football side with another "David Dein" doing other stuff.

[sportwitness.co.uk]

As we explained on Monday when suggesting Sevilla’s Monchi for the role: “Whoever succeeds Wenger at Arsenal will have big boots to fill, and it makes complete sense for Arsenal to hire someone capable of easing the transition, especially on the transfer front.
“Thus, letting the new director of football deal with negotiations would help the next manager focus on the task at hand: getting this team filled with talent to compete once against England’s, and Europe’s, best.”
A new manager tends to mean new staff members, and if Wenger’s successor wants to bring his own men in for the job next summer (or whenever the 67-year-old steps down), it would certainly make Arsenal’s life a lot easier if the roles were vacant come the end of the season.
Does all of this mean the Frenchman will definitely step down once the 2016-17 campaign comes to an end?
Probably not, but for a club currently embroiled in a mixture of on the pitch underperformance, fan unrest and managerial uncertainty, a recent backroom exodus and the creation of a new role to take over a job Wenger has himself partially overseen since his arrival certainly isn’t going to help the negative buzz surrounding the Emirates these days.

Arsenal first-team coach Boro Primorac has insisted that Arsene Wenger is not considering stepping down at the end of the season.


Reports earlier this week suggested that Primorac would be leaving the Gunners in the summer but Wenger dismissed the speculation ahead of the side’s trip to West Brom this weekend.
Wenger, whose contract at the expires at the end of the campaign, is yet to agree to an new deal in north London but the Frenchman’s right-hand man claims he will still be there next term.
Primorac told Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List: ‘Wenger isn’t considering leaving Arsenal.

I am not anti-Wenger, but I, like many fans have somewhat lost faith in him.

It would be great if he himself could bring our great club to its former glory, but its been a case of the same old story season after season.

If he does indeed stay, why would next season be any different?

Today I re-watched our 2002 FA Cup game against Man United where we won 2-0 away even without Henry. We were the better side in that game against a very good United side with Giggs, Keane, Scholes, Beckham and United had to resort to commit dirty fouls our players all game yet lost.

Why can't Wenger rebuild a team like that? Power, pace, intelligence, skills with a winning mentality!

I cringe to think the reason is centered in something he said after the invicibles team, that he enjoys the "uncertainty" of a match. Of not knowing if we'll win or lose. Maybe thats why he hasn't build another team of invicibles; that he wants to always try to win with a team that's "not too strong". A somewhat youthful team not made up of superstars. That's why he did not take the Real Madrid job when they wanted him years ago. Because it is not a challenge to win with an already great team.

It is that far fetched really? That he always wants to win with a team of "underdogs" so he can say he didn't buy the title?

The answer to your question, he has proven beyond doubt time n again that he's simply incapable. The invincible stuff was from a different era, football changed a lot since then but he didn't, instead he keep on continuing living in the past with a bunch of cult followers with a belief that if not this season there is always next season. While he's at work some other people at the club are hiding behind him counting money n he himself n unacceptable players doing the same. In short to anyone outside Arsenal cares little about them, Arsenal doesn't look like a football club who contribute to the game in any significant way..it has become a whipping boys to others.

Arsene Wenger not considering stepping down and interested only counting his ill-gotten gains?

How come Boro Primoric's influence on the first ten years is understated but he doesn't seem to have any blame put on him for the last ten years?
I think its way beyond time Wenger steps down, but threads on here completely insulting the guy are poor to say the least he has helped take this club to a new level commercially that is the problem I know but if you were on the board you would also love the guy.

The way fans are treated I think they are entitled to express their feelings how they want and especially those going to games and spending the highest fees in the universe.

Boro and the lot of them can go we need a total clean out!
