Oooh, good one Shifters – reminding me that I was a massive Wenger fan, for a long time, when I regularly mention it myself. You really got me there 😉
As for the season ticket, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think you’re any less of a fan, just because you’ve never been to a match. I’m just loving the irony. I first posted on this forum when I saw you telling someone they weren’t a proper fan because they didn’t attend games. Now it turns out that you don’t either! “Lol”, as the kids would say.January 3, 2018 at 9:44 am #1578001
TSO/Andy, you’re both wasting your breath. Shifters knows it won’t make any difference as I’ve told him that a million times in the past, but he’s not that quick on the uptake.January 3, 2018 at 10:33 am #1578018
No AlTheGooner, I don’t attend anymore as I stated I wouldn’t be renewing my Club Level ticket last season, but Ive still been to far more games than you over a much longer period and Ive still been right about Wenger for 13years. I know youre jealous but never mind, just like all of the other Wengie apologists you will just have to come to terms with his departure when it happens.

Shifty- I used to think only Wenger had the degree of dementia that he suffers from, but I was wrong, you run him close. You say I used to be a decent poster, but “lost the plot!” When was that pray tell me? I have been consistently against the manager since coming on here as “Jeff from Fulham” in 2006 and have, if anything, become even more opposed to him in recent years, so stop making up rubbish. You have a very childish, attention-seeking need to be recognised as the chief Wenger antagonist. There have been very few Wenger supporters here in recent years- Dave from Germany, Alan from Munich, englands best, moshea, truegooner all spring to mind, not a huge number of others. So stop this fiction that you have been unique in your views, it’s pathetic. As for your earlier post that my opinion ( whatever you construe that to be) means “absolutely nothing to me”, I’m devastated beyond description…… You have NOT been proved right about Wenger, thousands have. Now give it a rest.January 3, 2018 at 2:18 pm #1578143
Andy – I’m sorry but The board is most to blame for the current mess we are in.Instead of going into huge detial explaining how and why,I really don’t need to as long as I make one single point.We won many trophies and also the invincibles achievement,until the board members changed.Ever since then wenger went a decade trophyless,and this board was OK with that.They made this club mediocre and the mentality as well.I think them keeping wenger at the club and giving him so much power is enough to make them more culpable than anyone else.This is not a dictatorship(even though we all like to mention it once in a while).The board technically have the power to sack wenger and that’s all that matters.January 3, 2018 at 2:32 pm #1578149
TSO, to be fair, the only major change back then was Dein – the rest of the board remained pretty much the same. In fact we’ve had more “success” in the 6 years that Kroenke’s been chairman than we did in the 6 years preceding that.
You’re right in as much as the board – the current one and the previous one – have shown a spectacular lack of ambition in failing to replace Wenger or, at the very least, give him a good kick up the arse but, that aside, they do what a board is meant to do – make money for the club and provide the facilities for the manager to do his job.
It’s anyone’s guess whether they’ll get the next managerial appointment right or not and, if they do, there’s a good chance it will be by pure luck but any new manager will have all the tools required to succeed and, if he does, we’ll all quickly forget about the board.
Right, I’m off to get myself a fake box at the Emirates – I’m gonna make Shifters soooooo jealous!
