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

Robo-Arsene Is A Marathon Runner

We all know that Arsene Wenger likes to run the club from top to bottom, but Le Boss says even when he is on holiday, he is not on holiday.

Wenger has given a few player a rest of recent weeks but revealed that Robo-Arsene doesn't need a rest.

Speaking with Arsenal.com he said "I don`t need a rest, I am marathon runner. I am always busy. There is always work to do that we can not do when we play. I must say I am quite lost on holiday. But the holiday period is the transfer period so there is always football.'

"I can sit on the beach on my phone and I have met players there. The players are at the beach as well in the summer!

"No one has found a machine to measure the pressure so I don`t know how much damage it does to me compared to somebody else. Many people say I am under massive pressure and it is terrible to experience but you cannot measure it to see if it is worse than someone else or not.'

"I keep fit, go to the gym, go running. I do a little everyday. But for me if you are in sport then you are in sport. The players are under physical stress that I am not. Yes, there is mental stress but I like to be 'in there` and keep in."

Let's hope Mr Wenger goes motoring on for years to come!!

Workaholic, obsessive, driven, we all knew this about Le Boss but beach person?? nahh would never had him down as one of those, he just seems far too ...cultured really. I'm glad that 'Beach Arsene' is one tabloid pic I've never witnessed - seeing him in shorts is bad enough!

Thanks mate, was trying my damndest not to picture that scenario!, lol - Arsene as the Hoff.

was thinking the other day about if a world-class manager took over at, let's say, a mid-table or club in league 1 for example, how much of a difference it would make. Went through it in my head, and the only managers who would really signifficantly change the future of the club seemed to be wenger or ferguson. Wenger more than Ferg. Other managers could get results too, but would they really rebuild the club for the better to such an extent as Wenger? I dont think so.

Have trouble picturing the Hoff as Hoff, let alone Arsene. We love him anyway, knobbly knees and all!
