FA Cup holders Arsenal booked their place in the last eight of this season’s competition after a convincing 4-0 replay victory away at Hull City. However, a group of travelling fans showed their disapproval as the club’s recent poor form by unveiling a banner urging manager Arsene Wenger to go.

Both Tigers’ boss Steve Bruce and Wenger decided to rest a number of key players, however, it was two of the Gunners’ experienced stars who would get among the goals at the KC Stadium, with new dad Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott bagging a brace each.

However, despite the win which moves the north Londoners a step closer to making it three Cup successes in a row, some fans remain unconvinced, judging by this banner which was unfurled during the game…

Now there are a number of valid reasons why Arsenal fans would want Wenger to move on, with the club repeating the same mistakes year-in, year-out. However, surely a 4-0 victory in the FA Cup was the wrong occasion to do it?

Arsenal legend and BT pundit Ian Wright was less than impressed to see the banner at the game…

Wrighty then got into a Twitter scrap with the folk behind the protest after the game…

Despite the win, the Gunners still did manage to ‘Arsenal’ it up a bit, with centre-halves Per Mertesacker and Gabriel, along with sub Aaron Ramsey, all forced off with injury. Still, with a quarter-final home tie against Watford awaiting the Gunners at the weekend, a third consecutive FA Cup title is very much on.

    That handful of people have been using the same banner for the past 2 or 3 years.

    They’ll probably unfurl it once a year until Arsene eventually leaves / gets sacked, then claim it as their own personal victory.

    And then, no doubt, they’ll make a new banner when the next manager fails to win the PL as well.

    Personally, I find it all very disrespectful.

  2. Maria says:

    I see their point, though disagree with it. Arsenal should have won the PL in more recent history. This season in particular with the other heavyweights falling away should have seen Arsenal win at a canter.

    Who would do a better job though? Wenger has been the definition of consistent. Arsenal are always top four, always have European matches and have started picking up trophies again.

    By the by, yes it was 4-0 but against Hull – this replay should never have been needed.

    Some people are never happy..wish my team could win the FA cup twice running oh and be in the champions league 17 years on the bounce. Don’t know how lucky they are to have him in charge.
