Wenger Wants 100,000 Seat Stadium

Wenger Wants 100,000 Seat Stadium

As the debate rages on regarding Chelsea and it's half arsed attempt to fill it's stadium, Arsene Wenger thinks Arsenal fans are the heart and sole of the club, and wants to increase the size of the stadium.

Wenger, a world renowned perfectionist, said he wants more people to support the club, and a bigger arena to put them in after another 60,000 Gooners crammed into Ashburton Grove.

Le boss claims he is consistently amazed by the level of support the Arsenal fans show.

Not content with expanding Arsenal Football Club beyond all expectation, the wiley Frenchman wants more, and more for the clubs fans.

'I always said that I'm amazed by this club and its support - we are happy to have such support and we have a big responsibility to keep these people happy,' said Wenger.

'We try, at the moment we managed to do that. That is the real dimension of the club - the fans.

'We want more support, more fans and I hope that one day the next board will extend this stadium and build 100,000.'

Dontcha just love this dude?

This season, at the minimum. Big things will happen to, and for Arsenal. Again. It is quite vivid. I am a prophet. And I'm not talking about Usmanov. He's not so big. He will fail. GUNNERS FOR EVER.

He is talking about the next generation, FAB4. It is logical that this Board will be phased out, before another one runs Arsenal. Maybe with the same owners, maybe without, but thats a long way in future (hopefully). A 100K seater is mind boggling, and filling it every week will be great, but Wenger is visionary. If he can see it in the future, then its possible.
