Arsene Wenger Is Going Nowhere

Arsenal fans awoke this morning to find yet another story in the press about Arsene Wenger jumping ship and running off to the Bernabeau just because some geezer, who isn't even president yet, reckons he will bring in Le Boss as part of his election promisies.

Pardon my French, but that's complete bollocks.

I'm getting sick and tired of these muppets using our players and staff as pawns in the presidential mind games. Wenger would never join a joke of a club like Real Madrid and we all know it.

A few points that should put your mind at ease if you're feeling a bit worried that the most important man at our club may be packing his bags...........

In his whole career, Arsene Wenger has never failed to fulfill a contract. His current deal keeps him at Arsenal till 2008.

He recently said he can see himself finishing his managerial career at Arsenal.

I'm sure that Wenger gave Tomas Rosicky a few assurances that both himself and Thierry Henry would still be at Arsenal next season.

Why would any manager spend so much time bringing together the cream of world youth football only to walk out on it just as the team starts to come together?

We move into our new home in one month's time. Wenger has dedicated so much of his time into Ashburton Grove. He has overseen so many aspects of the project from dressing rooms to the air flow around the stadium, surely he would want to see the finished product.

The crowning glory into why Arsene Wenger will not join Real Madrid actually came from the mouth of the man trying to poach him in the first place. Villar Mir said 'If above the manager there is a sporting director, the coach will no longer have real authority over the players.' Can anybody real see Wenger accepting this?


Wenger has always maintained he loves running the club from top to bottom, thats what he does, he's a manager not a coach, he runs Arsenal, plain and simple. That is something he wouldn't get at Real Madrid, in clubs like that you get bossed from the top, I'm sorry but it's just not Arsene's cup of tea.

He won't go. So there's no point in speculating. When he finally does retire the coaches around will be a different breed so there is no possible way to decide who would be best for the job.

These rumours about Wenger leaving are growing in pace................As far as I can gather, there is some substance in the story............The FA investigation into Berenveen is highly likely to clear both clubs of any wrong doing. The most likely result is a small fine for "business dealings that go against the ethical nature of the sport", but no laws were broken..................... Now because of that, Dein is VERY unhappy at Wenger putting money in his own back pocket...........Dein sees it as bad as taking money from the club..................(coming from Dein though, it does sound a bit hypocritical)...........As a result Dein has put a transfer embargo on ALL incoming transfers whilst the club makes it's own investigations................... However Wenger has not been replying to calls that he should come back from Germany to assist the investigation. As a result, and as things stand the rumours are that he will NOT be manager in 2007..............Dein is waiting for the elections in Madrid in the hope that Real will pay a large compensation fee............... If Madrid do not come knocking then he will leave at the turn off the year................ The news on Wenger is likely to start hitting the press big time, as soon as the fuss of the World Cup has died down........................looks like Arsenal are pressing the self destruct button..........But then then what do you expect from the nation's most corrupt club, both historically, and more recently..................oh dear what a shame

McChelski,as for corrupt Mikel's transfer was the most corrupt piece of business in footballs' history.Fact; he had signed for Manchester United so how can your corrupt bunch of Russian Mafia crooks speak to him God only knows but they managed to persuade him,with a the aid of a horse's head,that it would be in his best interests to join Chelsea(the club of his boyhood dreams)before he ever kicked a ball for a Man U,bent naaa course not you mug.As for your club it is best summed up Mr P Kenyon who has so far been caught making illegal approaches to Mr A Cole and Mr S Errikson and Mr R Ferdinand remains unproven and you,you stinking pile of glory riding,hyprocytical dog***** have the front to call us corrupt on the back of an unfounded,ill researched story presented by a bird who had no idea what she was talking about and an editor who is a Spurs fan.The only person who knew what they were talking about from a legal perpective on Newnight was David Mellor,a Chelsea do ***** off and go and throw some celery around.

Typical tosh and rot coming from one of the most corrupt leagues in Europe. Exactly what you expect from the spanish. Bandy names around to make the prospective 'boss' look good. Just a shame that FIFA won't do anything about it, just the same as they always get away with hooiganism and racist remarks in their stadia.

Arsenal fans have short memories.......Historically, you have to remember Arsenal were the original MK Dons. Nothing more than a franchise for a certain Mr Norris, who moved his struggling team over the water, and who bribed his way into the league, and bought Highbury with the help of a few back handers, ............recently you had managers accepting brown envelopes, (a certain Mr Graham),.............. Transfer embargoes hanging over your heads, due to transfer irregularites with french youngsters............and Mr Deins unacceptable influence in the FA, which the other Chairmen have finally had enough of and voted him of the main FA I said, a corrupt club......As for the Mikel saga. If any of you would know if you bothered to look at the facts, instead of reading the tabloids. It was Chelsea that originally bought Mikel and two other Nigerian lads to Europe, placed them with a club and paid all their tuition fees, (In Norway you have to get an academic place in order to enter the country)..........It was the agents that screwed both Chelsea and Man Utd.

.....As for Dein's influence at the FA you seem as misguided as your **** of a manager who laughably claimed that Arsenal were getting a favourable fixture list after away matches in Europe but when he had it pointed out to him that this wasn't the case over a 3 year period(it was only last year that the computer gave you a couple of harder away fixtures than us)Mourinho like you decided to ignore facts and concentrate on licking another one of Alex Ferguson's bones that he *****ed him.Please do let me know how else you think Arsenal have gained an advantage by having Dein on the FA and please tell me how you think the situation has been improved by replacing him with David Gill who did his best to stop Rooney playing against T and T.I guess we should have P.Kenyon in as he is so straight.

Dear grimsby, unfortunately i have no idea who Steve Greenwood is. I've only started posting on here recently. I'm a Chelsea fan since 69, unfortunately exiled in the West of Scotland, (still a Season ticket holder though,)hence my nickname. (the same one that is used on several sites). ...........I have several good friends in the media, as well as several contacts in the Chelsea back room staff, and senior stewards at Chelsea, which is where I get my info from.....I'm just repeating stuff they told for the £11m allegedly paid by Chelsea for Mikel, please show me official confirmation from Chelsea, Oslo or Man U of these figures.......I am led to believe these figures were released to the press as a face saving agreement between the clubs, with oslo getting £2 or 3 million and Man U getting £1m to waiver all rights to Mikels contract.

McChelsea you poor demented fool,here are a few points for your attention; 1 you have failed to answer my question about specific incidents in which Mr D.Dein's has influenced the FA.This is because you have fallen for the tabloid led view that he has a conflict of interest being a board member of Arsenal as well but everything is alright now that he has been replaced by Mr David Gill of Manchester United.The fact that Mr Dein was replaced on the board does not prove anything and I await your response to my question but fear that you will avoid it with more assumptions and no facts. 2 you would have lost 50% of the bet I offered you already as you somewhat ridicuoulsly claimed that due to Arsene Wenger would be leaving Arsenal(he pubicly ststed today that he has no interest in the Real vacancy)if that's not enough for you please feel free to come back and embarress yourself some once again and sling some mud around. 3 Arsenal football club have not been charged by any proffessinal body for breaches of rules connected with the Newsnight article.If you look into the rules you would know that it is against FIFA regulations for one club to own shares in or control more than football club which Arsenal can prove they didn't as we loaned Beveren £1 million,receiving no ownership rights or shares in return.So Iam fairly confident of winning the other part of the bet I offered you. 4 Now do ***** off to celery and amuse people with tales of your informed sources.
