There was a board meeting three weeks ago.
The meeting was told that Wenger and the club have agreed a new two-year contract.
It’s not a rolling one-year deal, as I’d been told a few weeks ago.
I don’t know if it’s been signed yet.
But I do know they can’t announce his new deal after back-to-back defeats.
At Everton, Arsenal bottled it and lost 2-1.
At Manchester City they failed to build on an early goal by Walcott and lost 2-1.
Their second half performance was pathetic and Ozil was invisible.
Real Madrid were right: Ozil doesn’t turn up in big games.
Near the end there’s an injury and Alexis Sanchez sits on the ground with his arms round his knees. He’s been a winner with Barcelona and Chile but he knows he’ll never win anything big with this shower.
It’s been confirmed: Wenger till 2019. Ghastly news, I know.
And I hate to be the one to break depressing news like this.
WHAT A HORRIBLE WAY TO START CHRISTMAS WEEK…..
