A new contract? He signed it, didn’t he?
Unabashed with the current spending scenario of capitalism and money-rich-money-spending clubs, he sticks to his ideologies of playing creative football, devoid of monetary imbalance and style. (PLAY > FINANCE)
Of course, trophies do matter – but when someone tries to achieve it, by using minimal and unnecessary expenditure while keeping the team unity and playing style intact – you’ve got to respect the guy!
He’s been around for almost a decade – and preemptively been managing the club even before the birth of half the noobs screaming for his ouster. It might sound absurd. But he’s old school, and has a penchant for developing footballers, to famous stars. He brings out the best from players who are quite unknown to the public eye (Lorent Koscielny, Alex Song, Aaron Ramsey, The Ox – to name a few).

Personally, being a part of the Arsenal Fan Base – right from India to the Americas, I got many chances to interact with fans who knew quite a lot, something; or nothing about the club.
And on a majority, the most senior fan-base – WANTED HIM TO STAY.
The reason? NOT because, he’s Old. NOT because they’ve seen his early glories, and certainly not because they know better due to age.
It was pretty simple. 8/10 of them – explained the thoroughness with which ARSENE WENGER analyzes each match before and after it is played, the RESPECT he has for each player (no matter who they are, or where they’re from), the LOYALTY he has for the club (Rejected enormous offers to manage Real Madrid & France), the FRIENDSHIP he shares with everyone on and off the field (Media included), and above all the LOVE for the game – the Arsenal way (For this, you would have to do a comprehensive research on how The Gunners play from the grass root level).
To be crisp and clear, he’s known as “Le Professeur” for a reason – a reason we as fans ought to understand. If we don’t, then its better we leave the analysis to the elders of the club ; or simple – Stop following Arsenal.
Cause, Arsenal is more than just a club & It’s something which all the other fans who’ve been supporting them since forever understood – and will always understand.
Gunner till you die.
