It has been many years, nearly seven, since Arsenal got their hands on a trophy. This season looks like it will be the same.

It was back in 2005, when the Gunners won their last piece of silverware—the FA Cup.

Season after season they have fallen just short of winning many competitions.

How long can it last?

Arsene Wenger is seen as a great manager, who gets the best out of his players. So how comes those great players have won anything at their time in North London?

There have been many managers who have been sacked recently for the poor performances of their teams.

Arsenal have always been near the top of the table, but they haven't really pressured the top two on many occasions.

Realistically there are three teams battling for two champions league places. Liverpool are out of the race, but their local rivals Tottenham are a few points ahead in 3rd, and their other fellow Londoners—Chelsea, are right on their heels.

Wenger took control of Arsenal in 1996, and has had many successful runs in his time.

They are only one of six teams to have won the FA Cup two seasons in a row. They also have the record for the longest time a team has been unbeaten, which included the whole of the 2003-2004 season—the last time they won the Premier League.

However, his successful run only lasted about a decade. Since the 2005 FA Cup win, there has been nothing. 

Fans want their team to win tournaments and lift trophies, so how long will it take until Arsene has people shouting his name from the stands, telling him to leave.

Arsenal have managed to get a Champions League spot nearly every season since the Premier League started back in the early 90s. 

If they don't manage to get a spot this season, the suits in the team and the tracksuits in the stands will be wanting him out.

How much longer Wenger last at Arsenal??
