Wenger To Show His Commitment To Arsenal

Arsene Wenger hinted that he is close to signing a new contract after claiming he needs to show how he believes in his young charges by committing himself to the club.

Wenger has a little under 12 months left on is existing deal, and the Arsenal board are hoping to secure the signature of the man widely considered as the greatest manager in Arsenal history, for another period.

'I have to show as well how much I believe in this team by showing my commitment, my situation will be sorted out very soon.' said Wenger.

'I believe my commitment to the club has nothing do with the speculation of how the season would go, because that would be unfair.

'If I do not do well, and one day the club is not happy with me I can completely understand that I do not stay here any more. But I believe we will do well.'


Even though Wenger has, and continues to come under close scrutiny due to lack of transfers this summer, this is great news for the club. No manager in world football is more suited for the job than the French pensioner.

Now, about that centre back we need ..........

this is fantastic news I don't think there is a manager in the world who could have moved us to a brand new world class stadium and still keep us competitive. I still feel our short numbers in defence will come back to bite us this season and for me thats a very avoidable mistake. AW said at the end of the season he would strengthen the defence and the fact is we have let 4 defenders and only signed 1 player. So we are relying on 1.the vermenator tried and tested, 2. Koscienly looks very promising but is untested. djourou has just come back from injury and havard is more or less a newcomer to the first team (if he gets included). 1 or 2 injuries will leave us in a bad situation and thats unacceptable.

All the BS with transfers at the moment aside, I am very happy with this. I cant think of anyone else that could lead this team apart from AW. So it is great news. Now I hope he celebrates his new contract (once he signs it) with signing a new CB lol.

Encouraging noises certainly. I doubted that Wenger would rush to sign this contract and it may still run some time into the season before he does so - but encouraging noises are the right ones to make at this stage.

Good news indeed! Providing he sticks to his current "project" of course.

Although I am angry with him for not addressing our GK issues, this is great news. I will be even happier when he actually does put pen to paper, but the fact that he has said " my situation will be sorted very soon ", suggests that he has already agreed to stay, and is just waiting for the paperwork to be drawn up.

AW seems to love putting limiting factors on himself and then compete with other managers with that handicap. Sometimes it almost seems that he feels that competing with other managers on level terms (i.e investment into the team) will be unfair to them as the others are cheque book managers! We are about 2 signings away from possibly winning the league - an investment of 15-20 million max. Hope AW makes this one compromise on his ideals and invests this pittance of an amount which is not even 8% of our annual turnover. AW remains the most intellectually gifted manager in the game and I for one will be delighted if he commits his next 3 years to us.

Yay! :)

Great news!! Sport.co.uk reckons he has already signed a deal. If that's the case, then here's to five more years at the helm for Le Boss.

2 signings away from winning the league?! Maybe you should take another look at your team.
TheFamousNo7
We know our team better than you do TFNO7. Maybe you should look at your own geriatric team and ponder their prospects.
