Arsenal fans hire anti-Arsene Wenger VAN in another protest …

Some supporters have become increasingly vocal in their desire to see Wenger leave after a disappointing season.

Ahead of , around 200 supporters marched outside the Emirates.

Then, during the 3-1 loss to West Brom before the international break, banners were flown on planes above the Hawthorns – one against Wenger and one in support of the boss.

The first said “No Contract #WengerOut” and the other read “In Arsene We Trust #RespectAW”.

But the protesters have taken their displeasure up a notch before this afternoon’s match with .

The billboard on the van reads: “20 Years in Europe and we’re still waiting” on one side and on the other a quote from  chief executive Ivan Gazidis in 2011, who said Wenger was accountable to Arsenal fans.

He said: Arsene is accountable to the fans – they ultimately make judgement. If you are seeing the relationship between the fans and the manager break down over time that is unsustainable.”

Wenger is understood to have a two-year contract on the table to sign but has been reluctant to make an announcement on his future and the club says any decision made will be mutual.

On Thursday, Wenger insisted the speculation on his future is not an excuse for his side’s poor form, which has seen them lose four of their last five matches

“It would be an easy excuse,” he said. “Whether I stay two years or 10 years I have exactly the same commitment and the same desire to win the next game. I believe we are in a position where we do not have to find easy excuses. Our job is to perform.

“The worst you accuse me of, having done 20 years at the club, is creating instability. If I have created anything it is stability. The situation is not sorted out and I believe it’s important we focus on what is essential.

“You know my attachment to this club and at the moment it is as it is and I do not see any escape route to have less responsibility because of that. You have to be men and focus on what matters and what is our job.”
