‘Do the right thing and resign’ – Arsenal fans plead with Wenger to walk away

Arsenal supporters suffered another miserable night on Thursday, as they surrendered to a 3-0 defeat at the Emirates to Manchester City.

Just days after their League Cup final loss at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s side, they couldn’t find a response to lift spirits at the club, and instead it merely piled further pressure on the shoulders of Arsene Wenger.

Naturally, it’s the manager who will get the brunt of the blame as the veteran tactician has faced criticism for years now. In turn, it’s no surprise that after another abject performance and damaging defeat, many were calling for him to resign after the game, as seen in the tweets below.

Something undoubtedly needs to change at Arsenal, but the problems arguably start at the very top of the club with the ownership who have accepted mediocrity and haven’t taken necessary steps to fix it.

Further, the players also have to take a share of the responsibility for simply not being good enough, but for now, it appears as though Wenger is the focus of the attention from supporters as they were desperately hoping to hear of news that he was ready to step down.

Whether he opts to do that at the end of the season with Arsenal currently sat in sixth place and 10 points adrift of fourth place in the Premier League remains to be seen, but once again, as we’ve seen before, fans have had their say and they want a change on the bench.

Wenger has been in charge since 1996. On one hand, it’s an incredible achievement to have had such longevity and he deserves plenty of respect. Conversely, he could very well entirely ruin his legacy if this run of form continues.
