Wenger out!

It's obviously a daunting prospect to be about to face West Ham, but there was surely no need for Arsene Wenger to resign. My favourite Wenger moment was when Marlon Harewood scored an 88th winner against Arsenal in 2006 and Alan Pardew gave it a Bruce Forsyth fist pump. Wenger then completely lost it and lunged at Pardew, threatening to beat him round the head with a lump of steamed broccoli before smothering him with his duvet coat.

Still, you have to admit that Wenger was a half-decent manager. Arsenal fans complaining about 'only' winning three FA Cups in four years have always amused me — any manager who did that at West Ham would get a statue by the River Lea and a lifetime's free shopping at Ann Summers. 

Arsenal will now be right up for tomorrow's game instead of playing to an apathetic half-empty stadium. The lads have to stay calm and not let the nostalgia-fest interfere with their game plan. We gave Arsene his last defeat at Highbury and first loss at the Emirates. Let's hope West Ham can ruin his party again.
