Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger needs the support of the legions of Gunners fans more than ever. 

Le Prof is under pressure at the Arsenal like never before. To say that the last 12 months have been a roller coaster for the North London club would be a huge understatement. In September 2012, the Gunners were well-placed in third position to mount a title challenge.

Yet just over two short months later and Arsenal were languishing in 10th after losing at home to Michael Laudrup's Swansea City—the Gunners' lowest league position since 1994—and qualifying for the Champions League was nothing but a pipe dream.

Somehow or other the Frenchman turned the season around. A second-half-of-the-season surge after losing 2-1 to bitter North London and Champions League rivals Tottenham Hotspur saw Arsenal go unbeaten for the final 13 games. The Gunners won 11 and drew twice in that phenomenal run and pipped Spurs to fourth place on the final day of the season.

To say that Wenger had turned Arsenal around would also be a huge understatement. Le Prof worked a minor miracle.

He achieved that insurmountable task by exquisite coaching, superb man-management, a little bit of luck and inspired team selections. By the season's end he had earned the "In Arsene we trust" chants that emanated from the Emirates Stadium.

Here, Bleacher Report offers 10 reasons why Arsenal fans should back Arsene Wenger.
