It’s been a good day for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, who finally had something to cheer after they knocked Manchester City out of the FA Cup at Wembley this afternoon.
The Gunners were in good form as they beat City 2-1 at Wembley, finally giving the Arsenal fans lining the bar here in the pub some relief after a seriously disappointing campaign in both the league and Europe.
Arsenal were comfortably knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich a couple of months ago whilst they’ve been seriously off-the-pace in the league too- much to the frustration of our Arsenal-mad barman, who has grown tired of the Gunners regime over the past couple of years.
And Gary Lineker waded in on the Arsene Wenger debate today, confirming on Twitter after Arsenal’s win that he thinks the Frenchman will be offered a new contract this summer.
“Cracking game. Great win for Arsenal. Look forward to the announcement of Arsene Wenger’s new contract tomorrow,” his tweet read.
It’s been met with a mixed reaction both here in the pub and online but there’s one thing for sure- the contract situation certainly needs to be resolved sooner rather than later.
