Protesters push Arsene Wenger towards Arsenal exit door after Bayern battering

If Arsene Wenger hadn't quite decided on his future path before tonight's game, he must surely now be searching for the quickest exit out of town following Arsenal's humiliating 10-2 aggregate annihilation at the hands of old foes Bayern Munich.

It was the same old story for Arsenal fans - many of whom protested before, during and after the match - who watched on helplessly as their side slumped out of the Champions League round-of-16 stage for the seventh successive season.

Emotions will be running high in the aftermath of yet another dismal defeat for the Gunners, but even the most loyal Wenger supporter must now be contemplating a change in the dugout.

When interviewed after the Munich mauling a dejected Wenger, as has so often been the case, opted to shove the focus on the referee, but his downcast persona spoke volumes, and as he walked back to the dressing room he was perhaps coming to terms with the fact that this was his last shot at Champions League glory, with Arsenal at least.

Bookmakers have reacted to the latest loss by installing Wenger as the new second favourite in the Premier League Sack Race - behind Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka - with the Frenchman now as short as 3/1 with Bet Victor.

If Wenger does decide to call it quits then at least he, for the moment anyway, has the chance to hoist the FA Cup for the seventh time, and third time in the last four years.

The Gunners host non-league Lincoln City this weekend as they bid to progress through to the semi-finals.

Surely they can't muck this one up can they...?
