Wenger refuses to concede title fight is over

11 February 2017

The fans spoke not too highly about Le Professeur in their rants. What is important for me is that Arsenal football club goes well and I dedicate my whole energy for the club to do well.

"I was with him for a few hours last night, we were talking and obviously he didn't say to me 'I'm leaving at the end of the season".

It's hard to imagine Arsenal without Wenger on the touchline complaining about a decision or fumbling around with the zippers on his jacket, but it seems increasingly likely that it could become a reality soon.

Arsene Wenger's position as Arsenal manager is under severe scrutiny (again).

The 67-year-old has been in charge of Arsenal for over 20 years, and has shown tremendous commitment to the project throughout his time in north London.

"Aside from the fact we have a contract with Allegri, I think there are still great targets we need to achieve together and our rapport is very good", Marotta told Mediaset Premium. That changed last night, with Allegri telling Mediaset Premium, "I won't confirm or deny anything".

Winter Storm Niko Creating Travel Headaches in Northeast, New England
When Thursday's storm departs it will pull colder air into southern New England, with temperatures in the single digits or teens. By Thursday morning, 9 inches of snow had fallen at La Guardia Airport, while parts of New Jersey had up to 6.5 inches of snow.

Arsenal's hopes of winning the championship this season took a huge blow when Saturday's 3-1 loss at league leaders Chelsea left them 12 points behind the Blues.

It is not quite time for Arsenal to be concerned about the threat posed to us in Premier League games by those clubs fighting for survival, although our next opponents Hull City are now in the drop zone.

"What matters is not the opinion of people but how we respond", he said. "But I don't feel it is absolutely clear".

Wenger added: "You can not be a fan until last Tuesday (when Arsenal lost 2-1 at home to Watford) and not be a fan anymore and not be behind the team this Saturday".

Should Wenger decide to leave, Wright believes a significant number of the first-team squad could be moved on and says that the players would largely be to blame for a lack of consistent silverware in the past 10 years.

That said, there still exists plenty of quality, high-end options to take over for Wenger, and while the task appears a daunting one, life after Arsene can be successful if the right man is put in place.
