The Gunners have also left a commemorative t-shirt on every seat…

A guard of honour will precede kick-off, with Sean Dyche and the Burnley team also lining up to shake Wenger’s hand before things get underway.

  1. Wenger OUT says:

    Great day for everyone at the Emirates !

    • Comfy Chair says:

      Careful what you wish for….maybe a CL defeat at his hands?

      Oh, yeah, you’re going to finish in 6th this year, you tit.

      • Wenger IN says:

        Agreed, like the majority of football fans here’s hoping for the total collapse of Arsenal next season. Don’t blame the short comings of your team on ONE man during a time of financial strain due to building a new stadium. Blame the directors and average players at the club, all of whom couldn’t have been hand selected by Wenger.
