North London is currently white and the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are not too happy about it.
With local rivals, Tottenham Hotspur charging to a 2-0 victory in the North London Derby last weekend – many of the ‘Wenger Out’ brigade have reappeared in the Tavern after a quiet week following Arsenal’s progression to the FA Cup final the week before and, whilst Arsene Wenger has kept coy over his future at the club, many expect him to sign a new contract once the season is finished.
It is a move that our landlord is neither here nor there about and can see both sides to the argument over whether Wenger should leave or stay at the Emirates but he knows one thing for certain and that is that the Gunners must bounce back in Sunday’s game with Manchester United if they are to maintain their outside chances of making the top four this season.
Our landlord has also noted that Wenger has a terrible record against United boss, Jose Mourinho and predicts some fireworks between the two managers following numerous jibes they have had at each other in the past. The two sides actually drew 1-1 at Old Trafford earlier in the season with an 89th minute Olivier Giroud header cancelling out Juan Mata’s opener for the hosts. The draw meant Wenger still has not beaten Mourinho in the Premier League but our landlord believes this could change if the Frenchman picks the XI he has pinned on the wall of the Transfer Tavern.
