If Wenger leaves, it's disastrous for Arsenal

The American businessman will attend today's board meeting - having visited the Arsenal dressing room to offer congratulations to Wenger after Saturday's 2-1 FA Cup final win over Chelsea - but it is expected to be an informal affair.

After 22 years, 717 appearances and countless trophies, Terry has brought down the curtain on his playing career with the Premier League champions.

After our long period of uncertainty over Le Prof's future, it would seem that the bookies and gamblers are now certain that Wenger will be renewing his contract and he is as short as 1/5 on to stay.

Arsene Wenger reaffirms his loyalty to Arsenal after winning the FA Cup for the seventh time.

The Frenchman has been at the helm for nearly 21 years and, despite a section of supporters calling for him to depart this summer when his contract expires, he is now expected to further that stay after holding talks with Arsenal's board on Tuesday.

But crucially, the two-year deal agreed by Wenger in November remains in place and sources expect it to be signed if his authority remains unchallenged by any changes requested by Gazidis and the board.

However, with his previous contract set to expire in the summer, some fans had voiced their desire for his exit, citing a disappointing Premier League season which ended with failure to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 19 years.

"But I knew I didn't go anywhere near him and obviously it helped us to victory in the end".

"The players play for their future, for their next season", Wenger said.


Arsene Wenger's side, however, won this thrilling match through Aaron Ramsey's effort.

For Arsenal supporters, such a campaign - culminating in Saturday night's Cup triumph over Chelsea - probably feels like failure, even though they managed to deny their London rivals the satisfaction of doing the Cup and League double in the same season, a feat still rare enough (outside Manchester) to be cherished.

"I believe that it's a positive trend, but it would be ridiculous if 20 years depends on one game or the future of the club depends on one game", he said.

I was in great form and it was a shame I didn't start the game.

"It's very important to understand that this season for us was incredible".

Hartson told 5Live: "I think there will be protests if he stays".

"Otherwise, it is total incompetence to get to this stage". "I have to give him credit for that, because there were a lot of people saying he can't deliver any more".

"We still have a lot to prove and this team wants to challenge, especially next season", Mertesacker said.
