Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has for the first time told Arsenal's long serving boss Arsenal Wenger to bring the the trophy this season. Wenger who has served Arsenal for about 13 years, has brought three Premier League and four F A Cups.

But the club has not achieved anything since 2005 than launching a four year trophy drought the thing that has made the CEO to request point of order.

Wenger’s kids have lost a Champions League final against AC Milan in 2006 and while finishing for the third and fourth in the Premier League.

“Second, third or fourth isn’t good enough. We want to win something – this season – and we believe we have the squad to do that.” he said in a Daily Star Sunday

Every year Wenger has said he is building up a team especially when the faint-hearted gunners fans asked about trophy but Gazidis said no excuse this season to Arsenal’s frustrated fans should they fail to end that trophy drought.

“It’s wonderful to watch and very  exciting at times.

“We’ve spoken about the group’s potential. Now – and by now I mean this season – it’s very important for us to
focus strongly on winning something for the fans. They deserve it.

We can talk about football as a business but, fundamentally, this club exists for the fans – and they don’t care about financial reports, they care about what happens on the pitch.”


Gunners have started well this season registering 34 goals in their last eight premier league games and they have beaten twice.
