'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wenger In For The Long Haul?

Arsene Wenger today hinted that his long term future lies with the Gunners.

Speculation has been rife that Wenger will leave at the end of his current contract, but Le Boss has issued a statement that suggests he could be here a little while longer.

Wengers current contract expires in 2008, but with his 'new' team making the future look bright, Wenger could be in it for 'the long haul'.

Wenger said "If I left I would feel a deserter - like the guy who walks away from the army once there is a war. I am highly committed to this club.

'I love what I do here and love the spirit of the team. I feel committed to the players and the club.'

'I don't consider for a second that I'll change my mind,' said Wenger.

'I've started to build a new team again and want to see the job through.'

Arsene Wenger is the most important person at our club, he runs it from top to bottom and to lose him would be worse than losing the entire team.

Long live Le King!

Oh so right, without the Boss would be a disaster. It would be a return to the 1950's 60's where middle of the league would be a successful season. Even when he decides to stop being the manager a place must be found for him withing the club, he is without doubt the most important person in the club.

Arsene Wenger is an honourable man, and I think this new team excites him. He'll be around for a while!

He'll definitely be around for a while, he's got the makings of the best team he's had at Arsenal and with the new stadium we'll be more financially sound than ever. Long live Mr Wenger.
