Arsene Wenger Coming Under Increasing Pressure From Arsenal Fansby Sean Raymond / 04 December 2012, 14:30TweetArsene Wenger has been Arsenal Manager for over 15 years now but never has the Frenchman been under as much pressure as he is at the moment. The Gunners slipped to a 2-0 home defeat to Swansea at the weekend with the final whistle bringing a chorus of boos from the faithful at the Emirates. There is a growing feeling among supporters that Wenger is finally starting to lose control of the club after such a long spell in charge.
Wenger will always be a a legend at Arsenal for the trophies and the success he has brought to the club the facts are that they have not won any silverware at all since 2005. That is becoming an increasingly annoying stat among the Gunners faithful and now that their league form has also started to slip it appears that Wenger will be considering his future over the coming months.
There is no suggestion at this stage that Arsenal are looking to sack Arsene Wenger after all he has done for the club with the Frenchman more likely to jump of his own accord. He has stated he will consider his future at the end of the season but his immediate priority will be to see the Gunners climb from their currently mid table position in the Premier League.
The facts are that in recent years Wenger has been forced to sell the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Robin Van Persie and Samir Nasri among others with very little spent to replace those players. Wenger has consistently stated that there is money to spend if he wants to but so far there have been no big signings to replace those outgoing stars and the Gunners look thin on the ground compared to the likes of Chelsea, Man City and Man United.
Wenger will point to the fact that he has lead Arsenal to the knock-out stages of the Champions League for 13 years on the bounce but the Arsenal fans want silverware and that is already looking unlikely this season. The Premier League leaders are almost out of sight, they are out of the League Cup and the Champions League remains the toughest of all to win. That leaves just the FA Cup on the agenda and maybe, just maybe the egg timer is running out for Wenger at Arsenal.
