Wenger's future in question as drifting Arsenal face major overhaul

"We need to be together". They're hanging their manager out to dry.

"The light at the end of the dark tunnel they are in at the moment is the Europa League and that could turn around the whole season". They play the first leg of their last-16 tie against Milan in Italy on Thursday.

"Bouldy does get to do some stuff in training, but not as much as he would like", Dixon added. Suso is the team's top assist-maker with 11 dishes in 36 appearances, and a playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu is right behind him with eight dishes in 32 matches this season. The recent appointments of a head of recruitment and head of football relations (for all intents and purposes a director of football), speak to preparation for change at least, but this current Arsenal board are complicit in their silence.

Wenger threw on Danny Welbeck in the closing stages but there was to be no salvation for the Gunners, who are 13 points adrift of fourth-place Tottenham Hotspur with just nine matches remaining ahead of their huge UEFA Europa League trip to face AC Milan.

They have little hope of finishing in the top four, they're out of the FA Cup and their listless performance in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City was humiliating.

Arsene Wenger, despite his age, would be the ideal replacement.

Brighton raced into a 2-0 lead at the Amex Stadium and while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would reduce the margin just before half-time, Wenger's men were unable to mount a comeback in the second-half and were consigned to their 10th league loss of the season.

There surely can't be any way back for Arsene Wenger now.

No player gave away the ball more often than Henrikh Mkhitaryan against Brighton. There's no denying that these concerns are a lot more honest than those of Arsenal.

Winning the UEFA Europa League looks to be Arsenal's only realistic method of reaching the UEFA Champions League, but that will be hard on current form, so the Gunners may well end the campaign without major silverware or a passage into Europe's elite competition.

"In a survey conducted online & at tonight's meeting 88% of AST members vote for Arsenal ending Arsene Wenger's contract when position reviewed this summer (7% for staying on and 5% don't know yet)", a tweet from the AST Twitter account read.
