Arsenal fans are obviously not very happy that the Gunners haven’t won a trophy since Arsene Wenger’s super-successful first seven years in charge of the club.
In those early years Wenger broke many records and ended up as Arsenal’s most succesful manager ever, including the incredible Invincibles season, but now after another seven years he is in serious danger of becoming Arsenal’s least successful manager as well!
Many, many years ago (between 1908 and 1915 in fact) there was an Arsenal manager called George Morrell who managed to set a record of being in charge for 7 years and 75 days without winning a trophy of any kind.
Now Wenger has until Sunday July 5, 2012 to win a trophy (The Emirates Cup doesn’t count by the way!) or else he will break the record that has been in place for nearly a century!
Mind you I guess that if he doesn’t win a trophy or finish in the Top Four, there is a chance he could resign (or get the sack) just before the deadline day, and leave George Morrell’s name in the record books! But there is very little chance of that happening……
