Well we all knew it would happen so really no surprise. It really doesn't matter what The Arsenal do as like you all they are in my blood and have been for as long as I can remember. Over the last 73 years of my life I have seen some really bad Arsenal teams but the one thing they had in common was when they pulled on the shirt they gave it there all. let's hope the Leopard can change his spots and we get badly needed changes to our transfer and coaching policies. Sign up our players that have been allowed to run their contracts down and add some quality in the transfer window. I truly hope that Arsene Wenger has a couple of Happy and Successful couple of years, as I wouldn't like to see a repeat of the bad feeling and unrest of this season. However if a supporter is unhappy how else can he vent his feelings other than criticise, if we keep our opinions to ourselves then it appears that all is well. Come on Arsene give us something to shout about, go out with a bang. I am not forgetting we just won the FA Cup. It's the rest of the season that's been so disappointing. COYGs.

Agree with almost all that N7 mate, but I think next season all fans who are that unhappy with things should simply stay away, the banners planes and boooing has achieved nothing so personally I think those of us who wanted change and didn't get it should either totally accept the decision or stay away.
It's people's prerogative not to be happy and vote with thier feet and their money but it's not their right to continuely force thier minority opinions on others and stop them enjoying what they are happy with.
I didn't vote to leave the EU but I accept we are leaving and won't be leaving the country because of it the same goes with Arsenal imo I wanted change but the majority didn't and I accept that too.

2 great and honest posts
I'm glad he is staying.
G62 I hope you can still get behind the team, and when I'm down that way we can have a drink.

N7 Jesus your good on a comp for an old one. like me you have seen worse times than this, and I'm sure we will see even better.
Funny how not winning the fa cup is not enough.

30 May 2017 19:59:54
Can see your point G62 and i think the atmosphere in the stadium will be good but if we have a major wobble peoples memories are short and football fans memories are shorter than most and the Wenger out brigade could grow. Personally speaking i am a Wenger out man but when i am at the Emirates i get behind him and the team.

Imo it would have been great to call it a day after Saturdays great performance but he has chosen to give it another 2 years so let's hope the contracts of players we need to keep are sorted and the right players we need are brought in and roll on the 2017/18 season
Take care everyone.

Gunner you know what will happen next season and so do I. If it goes pete tong it will be carnage. If it goes well it will be dreamland.

Welsh mate i, d love that pint mate any time where in the same neck of the woods I will get the first round in geeza.
Heybridge I totally see where your coming from too mate, let's hope we both eat humble pie next season when we win the league :-) unlikely I know :-) .
Steve I see little point in carrying on the Arsene out campaign mate even if we are out of the title race by October or November, the club the fans had the choice and the majority gave the thumbs up to Arsene staying and that's good enough for me mate.
For what it's worth my advice to everyone who wanted change is accept what's happened and try to enjoy what we are most capable of achieving (cups) rather than dwell on what we are unlikely to achieve (titles and serious contention for them)

30 May 2017 20:55:59
That's the problem Steve.

We pretty much start every season in fairly good shape, but not quite ready enough to mount a full PL challenge.

I tend to look at other teams more than Arsenal, looking at their weaknesses in the hope they can/ will slip up.

"I'm sure we will see even better"

Welshie, sorry mate but at your age even specsavers can't help you see any better.

We are a middle distance club/ team Dags mate with middle distance mentality and physical capabilities.
The fa and league cups are the 800 metres 6/ 7 games the Europa 15 games? While the premier league is a 38 game marathon we simply don't have the qualities for either mentally or indepth abilities.
Horses for courses​.

30 May 2017 22:02:41
Dags I think the scrutiny by the media will be even more on wenger, he won't be able to fasten his zip without comparisons to last season. The press will be on it, stirring anything they can. If the chance arises. The natives will be led by results and the media.

Not to add too much positivity to this fest but it feels to me that we have been building momentum since the new formation and maybe getting stronger as our personnel adapts.

We have super speedy wingbacks, quality and depth for the back three (Kos, Mus, Holding, Gab, Monreal maybe a couple of loanees return) . It could be a great formation for Xhaka etc - of course missing a clinical striker, but if we nail that and keep our stars we should have as good a chance as any . remember other than the very forgettable Spurs match, we ran the table of ManCity, Chelsea and ManU down the stretch - seems a pretty strong indication.

N7 .73 years supporting a team. That's special, I would love to Sit down and have a chat with you about football.
My greatest of respect to you mate.
I hope you have many more years of enjoyment watching footbaĺl and your team.

30 May 2017 23:12:44
Very true Gents.

Rooster, our change of formation could be our saving grace.

30 May 2017 23:19:55
What a great comment leahy mate and your 100% right, I was so wrapped up in Arsene and Arsenal I missed the most important part of N7 post
N7 total respect to you mate and if ever you fancy a pint at or near a game just post in advance mate.

30 May 2017 22:49:57
Gunner I know mate, mI'm not on about the site, im on about what will happen next season. There will be little or no patience with a section ( don't know how many ) of the fans im afraid. Still we have signed wenger to win the league so that won't happen.

30 May 2017 23:55:19
Steve who really thinks we've signed Arsene to win the league mate? That's a dream and we all know that,
It could happen but it's unlikely.
We've signed Arsene because it's the popular choice not because we expect him to make us champions, anyone who thinks the this contract is about title ambition needs to give me a call because I've got a hardly used vintage lottery ticket for sale, cost me £1 in 1997 and be happy to let it go for £200 to the right buyer.

31 May 2017 01:43:18
Gunner, wenger has said himself, we are two or three player's away from it. Its not me saying it. Surely we have had all these meetings we are not privvy too and this is the final piece of the jigsaw. He must have been given the job to do that.
