Arsene Wenger Goes Bust

Arsenal Football Club have immortalised Arsene Wenger forever by commissioning a bust of Arsene Wenger to sit along side the statue of Herbert Chapman.

In Arsene Wenger's ten year tenure at the club, he has become a revolutionary that has transformed our stance of 'boring boring Arsenal' and brought some of the most exquisite football ever seen as well as silverware and the best club stadium in Europe.

Herbert Chapman performed similar feats in the 30's and his likeness sat in the marble halls of Highbury until the old girl was torn down.

I'm not sure where the busts will live within the new stadium, but to have Arsene & Herbert sat side by side would be the ultimate compliment to each visionary.

more than deserves it. can't say much more than the fact that he is a great manager. Changed the club.

All hail Arsene Wenger :). A fitting tribute, the only other manager honoured in this manner was Chapman, which says it all, really. And it might not stop here - I'm hoping Wenger can get on the Board sometime in the future. Anything to keep him here for as long as possible.

Totally deserves it, definitely a fitting tribute. Totally agree prits, he needs to stay on at the club as long as possible.

the only person i would like to see take over AW as coach when he retires is DB10. as for AW himself i hope he will take up hill-woods offer and be our chairman. his vision and dennis' genius will keep us tops for a long time.

never thought of AW as "busty", but this is fitting. The man will die watching a football match, there's no one like him and we are incredibly fortunate to have him.
