Arsene Wenger is not going anywhere in a hurry.
I don't think there's any argument that Arsenal should spare Arsene Wenger out of sentiment. I do, however, think they owe him a great deal of respect. There is an important distinction.
It would be sentimental to let an incompetent man stay beyond his welcome, but Arsene Wenger is not incompetent. The previous four slides hopefully go some way towards demonstrating that.
It would be respectful to honour the terms of the contract the club gave the manager. At present, Arsene Wenger's deal runs until 2014. In his time at the club, Arsene Wenger has always respected his contract, despite countless offers from elsewhere. The least Arsenal can do is show him the same courtesy.
Should Arsene Wenger himself decide to end his reign, that'd be different, though I don't foresee that happening. I think he wants one final shot at glory and redemption, and I still see plenty of reasons to give it to him.
What do you think? Should Arsene Wenger be given one more year or not? Let us know below.
