This opinion piece argues that

Over the course of the last five seasons, there has been a particularly repeated cry from Arsenal Supporters, “Wenger Out”.

Supporters of the club have made this known via display of placards at the Emirates stadium or trending the hash-tag on various social media platforms, as they made a case for the replacement of Arsene Wenger, however immediately replacing the French man is not the way forward.

Arsene Wenger is still the man for Arsenal

There has been constant criticism for Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger, with many supporters and pundits calling for his resignation, following a series of bad results.

However, his experience of 22-years at the helm of the club would be difficult to recreate, as no one knows the activities and hidden power struggles of the club such as Wenger.

Disappointing results in the Carabao Cup final and Arsenal sitting sixth in the league is difficult for Arsenal supporters to agree with this assertion, however looking at the Arsenal team, they lack quality compared to the teams above them on the table.

The Europa League is still a possible route to salvage Arsenal's season, and supporters of the club must remain optimistic.

Arsenal need a transitional Change

Shortlisted replacements such as will need huge investments to turn around the fortunes of the team.

While Mikel Arteta, Thierry Henry and 30-year-old Julian Nagelsmann are inexperienced to handle a club like Arsenal, and will eventually fall short if eventually given the job.

Arsenal lose to Brighton & Hove Albion

Arsenal are in a bad moment following successive defeats to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup and the League, therefore short of confidence going into the game against Brighton.


To all Arsenal Supporters who want Arsene Wenger out as soon as possible, the truth is that they should be careful what they wish for.

Manchester United were a power house under Sir Alex Ferguson until he retired, despite continuous spending they are still struggling to reestablish their dominance.

Wengers recruitment and transfer policy are one of the reasons Arsenal survived a difficult financial transition, while building their stadium and have been successful lifting the FA Cup in the last three seasons.

It may seem impossible, but Arsenal supporters have to be patient for Wenger to turn this situation around, as he is capable to.
