It's disappointing that the board habe allowed him to stay on. With any hope they will use these next two years to work through a succession plan to enable the club to move on from the Wenger era.

On the strength of Saturday's FA Cup perfirmance there is evidence that the can raise to a higher level.

The challenge is maintaining that level with a lot more consistently.

Keep hold of Sanchez and add some quality to the starting 11 and they will atleast challenge for a top 4 spot next season.

Look on the bright side, after 20 years he`s realized things may have moved on by adopting the three at the back formation with a bit of success. Now he needs to accept the increased wage structures and by winning will p*ss off Piers Morgan, which is a bit of a bonus.

Football Reforms.....

"A proposal to scrap 45-minute halves is to be looked at by football's lawmakers to deter time-wasting.

Instead, there could be two periods of 30 minutes with the clock stopped whenever the ball goes out of play."......

Have you seen what the BBC has done to their website concerning Football tables, and I assume other things. :banghead: :banghead: Now instead of a drop down menu where you can choose the League you want to see, you have to type the name into a search box! More meaningless user unfriendly change simply for the sake of change and to stroke a BBC staffer's ego! Rubbish, I'll now get my stats elsewhere. :bullshit: Pete

watch either American football and worse still basketball you will see that there are pros and cons of the stop-clock.

I couldn't agree more- while looking the other day I was invited to take part in a survey - I normally don't bother but was so incensed by what they have done I did and believe I I included the words " it is crap" and "go back to how it was before" - I'm not holding my breath though!!
