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

Four More Years Of Wenger

After much speculation, Arsene Wenger has finally committed his future to Arsenal and signed a three year extension to his solitary year he has remaining on his current contract. YAY!!!

Since Wenger's arrival, our club has been transformed into a completely different entity. Gone are the days of 'Boring boring Arsenal' and Le Boss ushered in the era of 'Wengerball', the most slick and stylish football ever to grace the summit of the English game.

Despite misguided folks, fooled my the media hype omitted from the red tops, consistently pointing fingers at Mr Wenger accusing him of 'spoiling' our national team (since when was it any good?) the greatest Arsenal manager ever has done more for the reputation of the Premier League than any other manager.......EVER.

The current board of our football club holds complete and total faith in Arsene Wenger, so much so that AW has complete freedom in almost every single aspect of the organisation. The boards trust emulates that of the fans.

Wenger's new contract was confirmed on the official club website this morning, with Wenger stating his love for the 'club of his life' as the main reason for the new contract.

Arsène said to "My heart is tied to this football club so signing a new deal was always my intention. Arsenal is the club of my life. I have been entrusted with complete freedom to implement and execute my plans on what will make the team successful and that means I have a responsibility to the fans to deliver silverware and also a responsibility to the players to help turn our potential into prizes. This Club has deep-seated roots and a tremendous heritage and it is my aim to uphold these important values and help create new history for future generations to recount."

This is easily the biggest signing of the summer, indeed our biggest ever signing. Thierry Henry's come and Thierry Henry's go, but there will only ever be...........ONE ARSENE WENGER, THERE'S ONLY ARSENE WENGER, ONE ARSENE WEEEEENNNNNNNGGGGERRRRR!!!!

Better NEWS
Best news I've heard in ages although we all knew it was coming. Maybe that says something about my life, or maybe its just really good news. Anyways it's 7'o'clock on Friday night here and what better reason/excuse to go out for a few celebatory 'fosters' than because the greatest club in the world resigned the greatest manager in the world. Drink up, there's only one team in london and there's only one Arsene Wenger! Cheers!
Ozi Gooner
Not much you can add to that G4L :)
Resigned??? Already!! Great news, lets push on now 3pts at whl and we've got Derby to follow
Where are the prophets of doom now? I want to see them eating their words! In his time, we played the totties 25 times, they won once. Isn't it time we pick somebody our own size as archrivals? This is like Mike Tyson against my 7 year old daughter...
And great that it's a 3-year contract too. Nothing much to add really about Arsene Wenger is there? My only hope is that his biggest legacy is that future managers try to uphold HIS values of the style of football we now play, with a mixture of youth and experience. If we win the PL this year it will be the best one ever.
And in the gmae they beat uz we had two players wrongly sent off. Iw onder how many spuddies rmember that one?
Ozi Gooner
That was seriously the worst typing I've ever done.
Ozi Gooner
He's only lost 7 out of 66 FA Cup games too......that is remarkable.
to be honest I don't remember that game. Was it THAT long ago??
First we had the Invincibles; now Arsene wants to "create new history for future generations to recount". What can you say? Get in there Arsene!!
Incredible news (although expected). What a turn around from a few months ago with Dein "leaving", Titi going and all the spuds telling us we're a team in decline as our manager is going to Real (obviously we don't listen to that the same as we don't listen to "we're gonna finish above you" and "we're a team on the up"). Things are bright for us! If I could kiss Arsene's rosy cheek then I would (but I fear he'd have me arrested!!!).
That would be worth it though scooch. F**k it, I'm gunna go for it!!
Right, i'm getting pssssed lunchtime. Well from about 11.30. A celebratory red wine frenzy is on the cards.
the most respected manager in the world, players look upon him akin to a father figure, the loyalty he inspires and the football he gets his teams to produce, the care he takes with the team and the club's finances, and the gems he unearths... THERE'S ONLY ONE ARSENE WENGER!!! Thanks for re-signing Arsene, I can rest easy knowing the club is in the best hands it possibly could be. NOW GO GET 'EM, GAFFER!!! »»Arsene Knows««
Come on then Rocky, I know where he lives! We can wait outside and when he walks out his door in his dressing gown to get his morning paper.......
That only means his house is free and we can lie in wait for AW to get home and plant a big smackeroony on him!!
Read the full interview on the official site. The man oozes class and i think i love him. Nice to know that the orchestra will continue to develop with the world's greatest conductor. I think it pretty much guarantees that we'll be keeping Cesc for another 4 years at least. F*** i'm happy.
Hahaha, see, then we really would get arrested!!! Maybe if we knocked on his door and kissed Mrs W....? Then vicariously we'd be kissin the big man!!!
Three years will take him to his 60th Birthday. I really don't think he will go on as manager beyond that having listened to him expressing his thoughts on the quality of life. This could be 4 very interesting seasons until 2011 - will we finally achieve that elusive CL trophy? - many of our current crop of players will still only just be approaching their peak! If the current board can stay in place the next few years should be good to watch.
Amos - In his interview on Wenger said he doesn't know if he'll go on past his current contract, but if he is healthy and hungry "Why not". Gotta love the dude.
I think he is one of these people that wouldn't survive without being involved in regular football. That's why international football has never really appealed to him.
Peter Hill-Wood mentions in his interview on the official website that " I have been told we have got three or four outstanding young players who could be not out of place in the Champions League in a couple of years time." Who do we think these are? Vela? Merida? Sunu?
My thoughts exactly HS. Football is in his bloody. What ever we feel for Arsenal, he does too, yet he is living out a dream, a dream that can go on for as long as he wants. I reckon we'll get 20 years out of the man. He just won'tbe able to give it up.
Whilst your there Rocky and Scooch give David Dein a kick where it hurts! Great news for us. It was a difficult summer, let the good times roll.
Too true Rocky. We'll have him one of those Stephen Hawkin contraptions when he is to old to run about and shout.
lol so you guys want to kiss him AND put him in a wheelchair... he might just regret signing up now!
The best thing is, when this guy signs for four years, you know that's exactly what you've got. Personally, I think in 2011 he will probably set up an academy in Africa and do that. Hopefully, he'll drop us a line on the talent finds.
Little Dutch
Vive le Boss!!!!!!!!!
I just had a nostalgic moment of thinking back to when he joined. Arsene who!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Right, i'm off to celebrate. Next time i'm on I may be typing more b***ox than usual. Adios gooners.
Arsene the prophet, the proof? "I believe we can go a whole season unbeaten." Arsene Wenger, 2002. Ha ha ha ha ha.
Little Dutch
Yes twisted, you are.
Little Dutch
There is little more that can be said about the man that hasn't been said. This man loves the club as much as we do, and with his telent thrown in we could not ask for anymore in a manager! There is going to be a lot of other fans, team and chairman disappointed by this decision - because AW is staying red and white. Doom mongers right AFC off at their peril!
Love him !!!!
Rocky when you say "He's only lost 7 out of 66 FA Cup games too......that is remarkable" it isn't really. I'd hazard a guess that during the same period we have only lost 10. Thats the thing with cup football. If you lose you are out, meaning your next opportunity to lose is the following year :)
Jacky B
True Jacky B, but those 3 trophies read together with those 66 wins give an even better idea of the magnitude of his achievement in the FA Cup alone.
Ahhh bless, are we all being nice? Look at the important stat Jacky....Foreign manager 4 f.a cups. That's nice.
looked at another way, you won 21 games for 3 cups (excluding replays) you may aswell not have bothered with the other 45
Jacky B
Jacky thats exactly what I say to sp*rs fans when they tell me about your magnificent cup runs last year!
Thankyou Arsene Wenger you are scholar and a genius it is a pleasure to have you at our magnificent club for another 4 years.
Great news! This kinda news after eveything brings special feeling to the club, Arsene knows hes got something really exciting going on and wont be happy till he has landed the big 1!
Frank Cese
All hail the King (Not that fat rock and roller) I can rest easy at night for the next four years!!
Not if you're buried close to Rock Hudson you can't Herbert:)
Now where did I put that bubbly??....................
LOL Hatespur !! Oh ***** I keep forgetting i`m dead? NADGERS!!!
Wenger's contract extention was never in doubt...where else was he gonna go? It's something the pundits who believed he'd walk were either too stupid to ask, or too conveninetly ignored.
"Arsène" the incredible - legend lives on. love you even more than my girlfriend Mr. Wenger. can't imagine our great club without you. thanks for staying and hope you'll stay beyond the next four years and never leave us..
Steady on luckys!! I know I wanted Liam Brady`s babies, but the rotten git left me for Juventus? Wenger to leave Nah he`s a man of his word!!
Sir Herbert Arsene is one of a kind, there is more chance of spurs winning the league than Arsene leaving us..
I know my friend, lets raise a glass, I share your sentiments....
Hey look at these photos of the great man with his various trophieSSSSSS:
Did any one read the full interview on the official site? That man is pure class, best manager in the world and big, big things to come.
Ozi Gooner
yeh Ozi i did, now i can't wait for the next game. i honestly think we are going to batter the spuds now, it's going to be the most emphatic NLD win under Le Boss..
Well there is one team in the premiership that will be on a sustainable rise more years to come and I'm supporting it!
Legend, so glad he has signed and its ONWARDS AND UPWARDS ! Wengerball IS THE most attractive football in the world imho and I just cant picture arsenal without Arsene at the helm, lets smash those spuddies as a celebration !!
How can you be SOOO great, and such a nice bloke to boot. AW proves that you don't need Maureen's riches, Fergie's arrogance or Rapha's haircut to be the best. He's da man, he's da man, and what's more, HE'S OUR MAN!!! Yay!!!!
Yeah Ozi, that interview was class, wasnt it? Excellent stuff :).
there's no one who could replace him. he have done miracle to the club.can't wait what will happen for the next four seasons.
its great that we received the news before the NLD, now the team needs to show their appreciation of this wonderful manager by thrashing spuds 4-0 at least. "one arsene wenger.... there's only one arsene wenger....."
