The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been coming to terms with the fact that Arsene Wenger will only be managing one more Premier League match for the club at The Emirates. Arsenal steamrollered West Ham 4-1 at home yesterday with three late goals putting the Hammers to bed. Now though, fans are truly starting to appreciate Wenger as they look back over his 22 years in charge of the famous old club.
“I would like to thank everybody who’s been really nice to me. Sometimes I got more praise than I deserved, sometimes more criticism, but I’ve had an absolutely fantastic time.”

The Arsenal fans propping our bar up will be made to regret the abuse and criticism they’ve launched at their legendary Frenchman over the last few seasons. The manager will admit himself that the last few years haven’t gone how he would’ve liked, although with three FA Cup wins in the last five seasons, you can see why a number of rival fans have been surprised at the reaction that Wenger has received from his own fans.
The Gunners will start their search for a new gaffer in the summer as Wenger makes his bow at the club that he’s elevated to the world stage. Over the last few days, the thank-yous have been rolling in across social media from a number of players, past and present, who were given their chance in football by Wenger at Arsenal as the reality starts to set in that their will be a new man on the touchline at The Emirates next year.

Is anyone else really having a hard time with this? Results or not he is one hell of a man and a human being. Arsenal won’t be the same without him
