|Arsene the magic dragon|
Despite fielding big-hitters, Wenger's charges were knocked out of the Capital One Cup quarter-finals by Bradford City from the fourth tier of English football.
In bygone years, the Professor would experiment with kids as his starting eleven grappled with winning the Premier League. But it's no surprise Cazorla, Wilshere and Co appear now. This was a clear opportunity to land silverware to end an eight year drought.
|Remember the feeling boys, the highlight of your career!|
So Bradford taunts at Wenger of “you'll be sacked in the morning” won’t be vindicated. Wenger's web of influence and planning is too thick at the Emirates. It's no exaggeration to describe him as a director of the club.
There's murmurs from Arsenal fan groups like the Black Scarf Movement that Wenger carries out the will of the ownership with scant regard to the supporters, to defend his multi-million pound salary.
After the heady days of the nineties and noughties, winning the Premier League is a step too far but as long as Wenger’s tussling for any silverware, he’ll remain fresh bread – not toast.
