Supporters question Arsene Wenger's future at Arsenal

Arsene WengerArsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal dominates the headlines following an action-packed opening weekend of Premier League football. The Gunners slumped to a shock 3-1 defeat at home to Aston Villa on Saturday, leading the Arsenal Supporters' Trust (AST) to question whether the Frenchman should be offered a new contract at the Emirates, with his current deal expiring in May 2014.

Wenger’s transfer policy has come under severe scrutiny this summer, with the 63-year-old promising to spend big in a bid to mount a serious title challenge following years of disappointment. However, he has yet to shed out a single penny, with the untested striker, Yaya Sanogo, the only new face and he arrived on a free.

Fans Call For Wenger and Board To Quit

Here's one angry Arsenal fan after Saturday's defeat venting his frustrations towards Wenger and the board.

(caution NSFW: this Gooner's passion does lead to a few naughty words, so if easily offended, don't watch!)

Arsenal have failed to lure over Gonzalo Higuain and Luiz Gustavo, while they are unlikely to land either Wayne Rooney or Luis Suarez. The supporters are craving world class signings and with a reported £70million available to spend they have the money to attract some star signings, although time is rapidly running out.

In contrast they have shown a multitude of players the exit door, including Gervinho, Andrey Arshavin and Marouane Chamakh. Furthermore they have been rocked by injuries to the likes of Thomas Vermaelen, Nacho Monreal, Mikel Arteta, Kieran Gibbs, Bacary Sagna, Tomas Rosicky and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, which has left them very vulnerable.

Wenger is the longest standing football manager in Britain but it now looks like he is in real danger of getting the chop. Paddy Power have slashed his odds from 50/1 down to just 14/1 as he becomes the one of the favourites in the Premier League Sack Race. He will have to quickly pick up his troops as they face a pivotal Champions League play-off first leg away to Fenerbahce on Wednesday, in which they are the 6/4 favourites to come away with the win.
