We have to make sure it his last season he has proven he will not leave of his own accord so we must now squeeze him out of the club I can't for the life if me believe we are just going to let him mug us off for another year no way @#$%& that if your putting money into the club your part of the problem if your arguing with other arsenal fans and not protesting to the club your part of the problem.

Enough is enough.

That's the thing WE have to take out the probably and force the issue enough is enough I don't trust him with any money or team tactics I don't trust him with anything to do with football he is clearly passed it we have a dinosaur as a manager while everyone else is moving with the times and pace of the game on and off the pitch in all aspects we are behind everyone we are trying to compete with.

I agree with you but I'm not actually sure anything will happen unless the board really want it to. And by that I mean until the club is losing money by him being here. Protesting walking out of games is grand. But there's too many who will keep paying to watch this @#$%&

bring out the banners again.
Mobilise all the fans that , for whatever reason, still support this regime.
The more we are , the more the media will pay attention.
The more attention this protest gets, more likely we will lose revenue ----> and thats what makes this old cowboy move and hopefully sack wenger.

You sure you lots have the "Arsenal Fan Power" to organise public demonstrations, turned Emirates into a toxic atmosphere to get rid of Arsene Wenger now?

[www.gunnerstown.com]

David O’Leary mentions in his book there were cliques formed in the dressing room. The players were no longer giving 100%. We then got knocked out the League Cup at home by Walsall, which really turned the fans against Terry Neill, the atmosphere in the stadium was toxic and we were 16th in the table, then lost at home to WBA 1-0. There were angry demonstrations by the supporters outside the ground afterwards. The fans wanted Neill out. Neill had just signed Tommy Caton, who must have wondered what he’d let himself in for. We then lost 3-1 away at West Ham and on the 16th of December 1983 the club did the inevitable and sacked Terry Neill.

The Sky Sports commentator let rip at Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey for WALKING with Arsenal 2-0 down against Manchester City.

Shortly after the extraordinary outburst City scored a third and it sent Neville into a full-on rant at Arsene Wenger's men.

He fumed: "Look at Ramsey walking, he's walking. Xhaka's walking. Mesut Ozil is walking.
"Don't walk at Wembley. Don't walk on a football pitch. It's impossible. Run.

"Look at Xhaka and Ramsey walking back, they are central midfield players.

"Forget Arsenal, I'll come into them in a minute as they're a disgrace.
"A minute before that goal I mentioned the walking of the Arsenal payers and the retreating runs of Ramsey and Xhaka.

"They are an absolute disgrace they are, walking on a football pitch at Wembley, giving up. Spineless.

"This is a dark, dark day. The team have just not shown up.
"There's nothing I've liked about this Arsenal performance - not one single thing."

[www.express.co.uk]

It meant that the players had stopped playing for him.
And he said he will leave when he lost the dressing room and can't improved the team to the next level.
Plus he is not leaving a strong foundation for the next manager to take over.

Want to get rid of Arsene Wenger in the summer. Easy.

#1 - create a toxic atmosphere at Emirates during match-day. It will scare sponsors and advertisers away who do not wish to associate their products with a loser.

#2 - hound Arsene Wenger at away games ... or better still, refuse to travel to away game.

#3 - start leaving Emirates in the 22nd minute as a protest against Arsene Wenger regime.

#3 - boycott all 2018/19 Arsenal products and block entry to Armoury with public demonstrations there.

Last season was bad, finishing below Spurs/ finishing outside of the top four. Maybe its me being naive but I expected some kind of response. I never envisaged this season could be as bad, maybe even worse.

Particularly since the start of this year though, we've just been so awful. We've only won 4 times this year and some of the sides we've lost to are seriously bad. Today was embarrassing.

We play bad football, we're laughable defensively, the players are under-performing and generally don't look too bothered about it. We're miles off the rest of the "big six".

I agree with all of this. Our form this year is as bad as I've seen in 50+yrs of being a fan. This team does play better than the Terry Neil team of the early 80s, and I quantify this by saying the Neil teams are the only ones I've seen, live, but the overall standard of football has improved hugely and on that front we're playing no better than the teams I watched at Highbury.
And it's going to get worst I suspect. New management, an over-haul of senior players, Cech, Mertz, Koz, Nacho and Santi are all 'past best date'. That's the best part of defensive squad and our owner and the board have deep pockets but short arms, so hence my negative feelings.
On a positive note I must pay some homage to our club for updating the back-room/scouting network, but that's about all that's positive about being a Gooner ATM.

Wenger may not have "lost the dressing room" in that a number of the players like having an easy ride and probably like him in that sense, but he clearly can't motivate them now, and if you can't motivate players to turn up in a cup final you'll never be able to.

Not going to defend Wenger in the slightest because all of this is his own making.

However in regards to the rant by Neville. He's way off the mark imo. Ramsey was walking because anyone could see he'd blown up. He wasn't fit and should not have played. We could have used the industry of welbeck instead.
Xhaka and Ozil never sprint anywhere, It's not a motivational issue. It's an attitude issue. Xhaka in particular should not be playing at all. I'd happily take Alex Song (who's available on a free) over him.

The number one player I do blame for their own behaviour however is Koscielny. It barely even registered with me that he was playing he was so poor. He's a @#$%& captain.
There's one player who should have been captain and that's Jack Wilshere. I love that he got booked for slow clapping the ref. I love he was trying to get Fernandinho sent off. He wanted to win and was angry. None of the other players looked the slightest bit angry or embarrassed.

Wilshere was the same against spurs too.

Fortunately I don't think Arteta or Henry will be in the picture, because Wenger will without a doubt have a say and I don't think even he's that thick to tip - let's face it - absolute nobodies in the managerial stakes.

Thierry Henry will be twice the manager Arsene Wenger could ever be on his first day of managerial career. The only problem of such move are AKBs most of the AKBs have heard about football, Arsenal n Arsene Wenger on same breath. That's a serious issue, these folks lived in a cocoon in parallel universe since they were born, they will go bonkers the day new manager losses his first game but don't worry years of Wenger's treachery n deception has created a small but battle hardened fanbase over a long period, that's the core real Arsenal all season fanbase n they will standby the new manager kicking the asses of AKBs at least for next 2 to 3 years. That's sufficient time to stabilize the club n bring it to a new direction. Henry will do a Zidane at Arsenal.

Any new manager will be a breathe of fresh air, no matter who it is. I hate to say even Brendan Rogers will be welcome, a good choice no way. I personally want Henry, call me an idiot, but he was my favorite player and would be fun to see him run this club. He obviously loves it and will try his hardest to turn it around with or without Wenger's help. Why bring in Ancelloti, just makes no sense to me, we are a project to any manager. Lowe makes the most sense with all the German influence in the club today. I can not stand the attitude of the players we have now and we need someone to change it, they know that Wenger has no guts to call them out or even bench players like Xhaka or Mustafi, Wenger is to loyal to players and it works when you are winning, but hard to change when it all falls apart like now.

Not if he was advising sanchez to leave.

Lets not very emotional. Get the best man for the job, if it doesn't work out, sack them.

Henry would likely get more time and it will be more difficult to ask Henry than a job arsenal manager.

The criteria needs to comprehend and sky sports punditry is not a qualification to be a manager.

Lets not compare with Zidane. He was a lot more involved with real before he making manner, he was already identifying players etc etc and driving signings (i forget if he was director of football or not right now).

Henry has no experience with any aspect of football management.

Please get someone who already has experience and pedigree. No arteta please. We cannot be someone's first break. He has to have managed a football club.

Our team is average because Wenger has made it that way. We have players like Xhaka, Welbeck and Iwobi playing to name just a few and there is only one deluded moron who made this dire team.

The players are competing at the current teams level, hence why we will finish sixth at best. The table doesn't lie.
