Everton Owner Wants Wenger As Replacement For Allardyce

  • Arsene Wenger arrived at Arsenal as an awkward and unknown character in October 1996

Factor in their embarrassing EFL Cup final defeat to Manchester City too and Wenger has precious few supporters left. He is the only manager in the history of the Premier League to have gone a season without a defeat and is easily one of the best options for Everton.

The Gunners lost 2-1 at Brighton on Sunday for their fourth successive defeat in all competitions, which has left them 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham. Arsenal did not play Champions League football for the first time in two decades and are now 13 points behind Tottenham in the race for fourth place in the Premier League.

'Yes, because we have to be realistic, ' he said when asked if Ramsey's rest is a sign of the Europa League's importance.

Groves, who spent six years at Highbury, called for the Gunners to approach the two last-16 games against Gennaro Gattuso's side with confidence.




While Wenger will leave the club still regarded by many as their most successful manager ever given his 17 trophies in 22 years - it appears that his departure will come in acrimonious circumstance, and with this news, perhaps sooner rather than later. He immediately got underway with attacking style of football and in his first 9 seasons in charge of the Gunners, they either finished 1st or 2nd in the league. His legacy of swift attacking football maybe attractive to the eyes but Wenger is now in charge of a spineless team, lacking depth and leadership in all areas.

"The light at the end of the dark tunnel they are in at the moment is the Europa League and that could turn around the whole season".

Messr Wenger should take a walk and focus on other things.

Having won 19 major honours in his two-decade tenure at Emirates, Wenger has managed to qualify for the Champions League in every season except the last one and is regarded as one of the most respected managers in Europe at the moment. The recent appointments of a head of recruitment and head of football relations (for all intents and purposes a director of football), speak to preparation for change at least, but this current Arsenal board are complicit in their silence. And the way Arsenal and Cech himself have been performing now, it looks like he might have to work for the next clean sheet harder than he would have thought.
