England — 12 December 2012

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger suffered the biggest humiliation of his managerial career last night, as the Gunners lost on penalties to League Two Bradford City in the Capital One Cup quarter final.

The Frenchman’s team have underachieved in recent years and haven’t won a trophy for seven years.


A lot of big clubs don’t take the league cup seriously and field weakened line-ups in the competition. However Arsenal put out a strong team to face the League Two team and they still couldn’t manage to make it to the semi-finals of the competition.


If ever a club and manager needed to win a trophy then its Arsenal and Arsene Wenger. Arsenal are a club with a history of winning trophies and seven years without a trophy is a long time for the Gunners not to have claimed silverware.


Arsene Wenger transformed Arsenal’s style of play when he arrived in England. He turned Arsenal from a defensive, counter-attacking team to a team that played passing, attacking football. He also revolutionised the diets and fitness regime at the club.


Arsene Wenger has a football philosophy of trying to develop young players into world-class stars. The Frenchman had success bringing in younger players for a long time, but in recent years his philosophy hasn’t brought so many trophies to North London.


Not for the first time people are asking if Arsene Wenger can still bring success to Arsenal. Maybe the team needs a fresh approach to bringing success to the Emirates Stadium. A new manager could provide fresh impetus and fresh ideas.

However, Arsene Wenger still has a lot to offer and a solution to the situation could be for Arsene Wenger to stay at the club in some capacity. I think it would be a perfect solution for one of English footballs greatest ever bosses.

Could Arsene Wenger move upstairs at Arsenal?
