    Club are considering an early decision over his future to avoid uncertainty


    Could just as easily mean he's getting a contract extension. Sounds like Ivan wanted him out last time, but Wenger ran and hid behind Stan.

    That makes the assumption that Kroenke cares more about Wenger than money

    If Gazidis can convince him a) that it wonít cost him too much and b) that it wonít require him to do anything. He may well sign off on it

    Itís not about ethics or sentiment

    Itís about stability

    And fact is Chelsea for all their money havenít retained a league title in over a decade

    No one has since Fergie anyway. 2 titles in 3 years or 2 back to back, it’s all success to me regardless of the perceived instability.

    And how many would they have won if they’d given a manager time to create a team. Mourinho understandably can’t be kept too long, he’s essentially mentally ill (depending on whether you can classify an acute personality disorder as mental illness). But how many of the managers they chucked could have created a dynasty given time?.

    And again I think only a team with Chelsea’s money can get away with this destabilisation effect

    City give their managers time (Mancini had almost four seasons, Pellegrini had three) and I think as I’ve said that’s the optimum time. City have wavered here and there but they’ve qualified for the Champions league every season since 2011.

    They haven’t won back to back titles no. But I think they are pretty well set up to do so now....unfortunately

    Wenger doesn't seem to be getting the run of the luck like he usually does. Zim's right.

    Lacazette has just got injured which leaves us with Welbeck as our main striker in Europa. That hugely hampers our chances.

    For a manager that dined on luck and good fortune, he seems to be getting none of it.

    I can't see a reason why they'd extend it. The writer of the article points out that we're due for kit sponsor negotiations and us being out of the Champs League weakens our position for a better deal with Nike or Adidas. We said that on here last season.

    Also, with the new appointments Ivan has made and their impressive records, they should already have Kroenke's respect and admiration. It's the whole moneyball philosophy Wenger practiced that drew Stan to Wenger in the first place. Two new younger guns with recent evidence of success should add more ammo to Ivan's arsenal.

    It's going to be an interesting summer. Carlo Ancelotti was at the NLD watching.

    Not getting my hopes up.

    Was convinced he was leaving last season. How he managed to get an extension is beyond me.

    He's going nowhere.
