This is the most ridiculous argument I've ever heard for keeping him in a job. We are the Arsenal for Christ's sake, any number of top quality managers would walk over their own mothers to take this job, even with our incompetent board.

Also, to compare us to Portsmouth is completely idiotic. They were bankrolled by a benefactor (untill he got bored) and spent way more on wages/fees than there income stream/fan base could support. We make £3m quid every single home game ffs.

I can appreciate that people still support Wenger, but this sort of ill-informed nonsense belongs at Jonestown or Waco.

Until the deadline passes it has to be FOR. Although I have to say that for a Club of our size, the money we obviously have, and the need to improve if we are to have any hope of winning the league, our ability to get our sh*t sorted out with any sort of urgency is questionable to put it mildly.

Fair points well made.

not a big fan of Le Prof, due to his constant lying to the fans, but Wenger and the club have done the right thing this season, by getting rid of some dead wood.

just a shame he won't get rid of his adopted son Abou, and stop paying him pocket money each week

It's not a question of getting rid, he has 2 years left on £60k per week, I doubt we could give him away.

so over the next two years, we got to pay him roughly £1.4m in wages, sell him now, even if it's only for £2m or 3m.

Who's going to pay money for a player who's currently injured and not due back until at least January?

Be interesting to know if we have insurance on him.
I'm sure I read somewhere that clubs insure their players against cost of wages for long term injuries.
Can't imagine anyone taking on Diaby though.

If RvP is insurable Diaby definitely is... Diaby has tiny niggling injuries, RvP isn't far of a career ending injury if it happens again.

In this either/or version I am still for, but just.

I'm not angry or disappointed just totally unclear how things fit together at the club because I believe there is a logic to it. Some stand alone aspects I get but others not.

I find it very hard to be against Arsene as a man and manager because I think his values, his ideology - call it what you like - are exactly what football needs more of. I think he treats players with respect and demands self responsibility from them, and gives them chances to redeem themselves if needed. I understand that he cannot - literally - pay ridiculous prices for fallible, vunerable human beings. It frustrates me but I admire his ability to stay firm in all the madness. I think his vision for how a club survives and remains sustainable in the future is right. Finally, I think he is completely misunderstood by many fans and media. They cannot deal with his decisions on the pitch and in the transfer market because they do not understand, or want to understand, his approach.
I'm not in any catagorie of for or against. I accept that under these circumstances he will probably have to go unless he redeems himself by winning trophies for the starving amoungst us. I think in years to come his approach will be better understood and I think, with hindsight, appreciated.
