Arsenal are currently experiencing their worst season under Arsene Wenger and, after the Gunners’ Europa League display against Östersunds FK, it’s hard to believe that there are Gooners out there who actually want the Frenchman to remain in charge… but there are.

Even the staunchest of Wenger supporters have now reluctantly admitted that there does need to be a change at Arsenal.

It goes without saying that the majority of fans want to see him leave while still respecting everything the manager has done.

However, when we put it to you guys on Twitter, there were a small amount of replies that explained the thinking behind those who do want the 68-year-old to stay in north London.

One fan, who will remain anonymous since they messaged us privately on Twitter, pointed out that three FA Cups in four years is good going and, if Wenger can win the League Cup and Europa League this season, as well as tie Mesut Ozil down to a new deal and sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, it could actually be considered successful.

“I’m not deluded,” they write. “I know that looks a big IF at the moment. But I want to give Wenger the chance to prove people wrong.”

Another Daily Cannon follower sent in a similar response and added:

“It’s prioritising competitions, as it’s the only way we can deal with the financial strength and depth of the other big teams.”

One fan believes Arsenal fans are too harsh on the boss and the players need to be criticised as well. Although they realise that something does have to give.

“I’d rather he left on his own terms.”

Not everyone feels this way… obviously.
