Thank you, dear Arsene, for your unflinching commitment, excellence, loyalty and passion for the Arsenal FC. In addition to a couple others, you're a reason why I chose to support this club. For me, you represent values that I cherish in life in so many ways, and my respect will always be there for you for life.

May God bless you and your family, and grant you His blessings for the future. Thank you, great man.

Alas, there goes my football hero.

Arsenal became a loved and respected club by neutrals and even some detractors because of Arsene Wenger and the values he personified; beautiful football, class, honesty, loyalty and consistency.

He transformed AFC into a modern colossus and his imprint will remain on English and World football for ages.

Au revoir Arsene. Thanks for the wonderful memories.

Yes! Yes!

A bittersweet moment as Wenger is truly the greatest Arsenal manager ever, but this was loooooooong overdue. Should have left 2 or 3 seasons ago.

Now a real difficult task of a successor begins. This is where the board and the upper management earn their pay. They better get this right.

Thank you Wenger for your service and I can go back to loving you now.

Freed up my schedule for today to enjoy and glow in everything Arsène Wenger. I will start in my favorite hangouts around Arsenal, then get home and watch video compilations. What a man. Legend. Ultimate love of my football life. Sad to see him go.

I will end my night with a bottle of the finest vintage champagne because it is also one of my son's birthday.

Everyone thought arsene was stubborn during his time but he wasn’t stupid. The board were willing to let him see out his last year as manager. Wenger ultimately made the decision and knows it’s best for the club to take a new direction. #AFC

Do not embellish things. You are bigger than this my man. I never said NEVER! One thing we all know in football is you never say never.

Indeed, it is well documented here, I said Wenger will know when it is time to leave because he is not a f00l.

We all knew Wenger was coming to the end of his time at Arsenal, it has never been a question of if but when.

Now he is leaving, my weight and support will be with the next man at the Emirates.

Wenger has exemplified dignity, integrity and class till the end. That's why he is a hero of mine. I met him a few times, had chats with him and grew a deep respect and admiration for the man. I make no apologies for my position on the man because I know I am right.

Not embellishing anything my good friend, i have waited for this day....your big grammar wont deny me the joy :lol:

Abeg keep my isi-ewu for me at Obalende suya...you must buy me 2 bowls for refusing to see the obvious. Wenger was great but like all good things and great men....he outlived his usefulness. He made a mess of what would have been a perfect legacy. Some of us are angry not because we dont like or respect what he has done, rather we see a great man succumb to the frailities that reduces heroes to zeros!

Mess what legacy. You sure. Once again, you are wrong. :lol:

Waited till shame would usher him out. Ozil on board, Lacazette in, Sanchez for a few games, all the ingredients for “we will be strong” and alas, the stronghold has battened down the hatches to repel an onslaught from Admiral Sean Dyche. 30+ points adrift and zip zero to show for the season besides a fight to the death for a competition as recently ridiculed as this time last year. Twas said, not till those Babylonian towers are tumbled down, till those Jerrichoian walls are weathered and eroded, till the moats have dried to mist and salt and the castle none but pillars of sand, then Gandalf the Great will pack Wengerism in his nap sack and disappear into a vanishing sunset. Perfect time to say goodbye, atop the crest of absolute irrelevance. North London’s nobodies. Wenger has done as promised and leaves Beloved in the absolutely essential state for the new era. Destruction was key, ruin and rubble of paramount importance, Beloved has long since needed a good dose and dollop of just deserves!

Adieu Monsieur, thanks for the memories, the more recent just as much as those long past. 10 Kings, 10 eras...Has this ever been captured more poetically.

I’m a very big fan of the young coach Tedesco of Schalke but I would be worried for him to succeed Wenger at a rabid club like Arsenal

Mesut Özil had an interview scheduled with beIN Sport, but it has been delayed as the players come to terms with the announcement. After telling the players of his decision and giving a speech, they fell silent in shock & only Wenger’s footsteps as he left the room could be heard.

beIN Sports were on ground and they witnessed it all first hand. Their reports are telling about Arsenal being caught cold.

beIN Sports reports on Wenger's makes it clear it was unexpected by all at the club. They say everyone in shock including the Owner and Board who tried to persuade him to stay till the end of the season.

My view on this is, fans staying away in the last few games played a huge part. Yes, the Europa League semi finals have seen a huge interest in ticket demands with me getting offered good money for mine. But I believe Wenger took the empty seats as one reason why it is time to leave. The fans at the Emirates could not bring themselves to ask to leave, but their not turning up played a part.

Just my opinion.

A lot of talk about Vieira, that's because he has been seen at the Emirates.

My money is on Benitez.

Every good thing MUST end!

Thank you Wenger. As an Arsenal fan, I have known no other. Papa Wenger is the greatest coach ever.

The mob has won. This was coming, and I have no complaints. I just say thank you.

"atop the crest of absolute irrelevance, North London nobodies", my lord, Coach.


Out of the title race before the bell for the final lap, like the Spaniard in the steeplechase swollen with Kiptanuis. Bundled out of the cup competitions like a cheap whore smuggled out the backdoor as Madam enters through the front. What remains, a Mount Olympus made of a competition once used as fodder for criticism and curse of Man United and Tottenham. Sean Dyche breathing down the neck, 6th place feeling slippery in one’s grip. MoMo Diame running through the midfield like a Star Wars stormtrooper. Absolute irrelevance. No impact on top, no impact on the bottom, just a casual mosey-on-down of a season. Pathetic. The King’s abdication is perfectly timed, but needless to say, the right to be sacked had been well earned and definitely deserved. As ever, a festival of f*ckwit diplomacy, the season hasn’t been good enough, the decade hasn’t been good enough, why then the freedom to kick away his own chair? Wenger has earned the right to be strung up and the trapdoor opened. There’s a way to go and this is unfitting of the man, the mission, the legend, the myth and the monstrosity. Only the noose would’ve been adequate, slipknott and a brisk fall.
