Why Arsene Wenger Deserves Credit This Season

Arsenal and Arsene Wenger are in familiar territory again this spring. So how do we rate their performance?

As another season comes to a close, Arsenal and Wenger once again find themselves without silverware. With one match left in the Premier League campaign, the Gunners remain alive in the race for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification, but despite Wenger’s statements to the contrary, that’s no trophy.

Arsenal’s FA Cup and League Cup campaigns ended against lower-league opposition, and the Gunners were eliminated from the Champions League by favorites Bayern Munich. Without the prospect of silverware for an eighth straight season, some fans are starting to lose patience with Wenger, but does Wenger deserve some credit for his work?
