So Stan Kroenke did what we knew he’d do and signed Wenger up to another two years.
Unbelievable when you consider what elite sport is all about. A complete non-starter however you want to look at it. Wenger reframed success to be the top 4, and even when he tanked at that, he’s managed to earn himself another deal with the club.
So here we are, the elusive board meeting. Wenger rolls into battle with… errr… basically no one.
Well, that’s how I’d imagine it’ll happen. He is king, he has the leverage now. He will reign victorious, of that, there is no doubt.
So it’s a day later and I’m still basking in the glorious haze of an epic cup win. I’m glad my take on the event wasn’t as over the top as it felt when I wrote it. Lots of people saying it was one of the great FA Cup finals of recent times, and given the context, one of the greatest wins ever for the club.
