Arsenal fans are rather ecstatic here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Telegraph claim that the Gunners are about to hand manager Arsene Wenger £50 million this summer.
Now as our landlord notes while handing out some free shots to calm the long suffering fans down, the problem is not the money on offer, rather the fact that it will be handed to boss Wenger.
The Frenchman has failed to deliver once again with another abysmal showing in Europe by the club and a Premier League title challenge that did not even last until the usual February.
The Gunners are set to crash out of the Champions League baring a second leg miracle and as one of our punters notes, Wenger is a huge reason to blame – and by handing him more money to spend, the Arsenal board will only compound their problems.
However, it has been noted that the board will give Wenger this chance but are set to demand a huge improvement on their fortunes next season, so maybe there is hope for the north London side after all – they may even be able to get third place with that added investment!
Arsenal fans. Is this the worst end to your week you can imagine? When will it end? Let us know your thoughts below.
