Wenger promises decision on future 'very soon'

Posted March 20, 2017

A plane flew over The Hawthorns calling for Wenger to be removed as manager, and although another plane bore a message of support, it is clear that the number of supporters disillusioned with a manager who was appointed in 1996 is ever-growing.

Wenger, who also said at the post-game press conference that he has already made a decision on his future, has for years denied witnessing controversial incidents in games.

"The best way for us is to take the game to them and not to be too much on the defensive side and not have too many set-pieces against you".

This painful defeat came after Arsenal lost against Bayern Munich.

The last time they won the league was in 2004 and they have never won the Champions League under Wenger.

Sanchez equalised after Craig Dawson's 12th-minute opener but substitute Hal Robson-Kanu made an instant impact 10 minutes after half-time and Dawson headed a second to ramp up further pressure on the beleaguered Wenger.

Arsenal's leading scorer, Alexis Sanchez equalised three minutes later but that was the only bright spot on a gloomy afternoon for the Gunners.

According to the Sun, when asked if he thought Wenger would stay at Arsenal, Pulis said: "I'll be surprised if he goes".

"We have to live with that".

"In our job, it is like when you have a problem with your engine; you can always find many problems, but is important to find the most important one".

"Surely somebody has told them before the game you need to be very careful, McAuley, Dawson, they are monsters at set-pieces".

"We've got one loan player, Marc Wilson, to take the senior group up to 17 players". No wonder their midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain described it as "unacceptable".

They are very intriguing comments indeed.

The Gunners have five more away games left in the league this season, including trips to Tottenham and Southampton, and those games could define the remainder of what is turning out to be a disastrous season.

"I understand, you raise the bar and if you don't reach that again you and the players are going to get criticism".

"When you lose one, two or three games in a short time, it's obviously hard because your confidence goes down".
