    Wenger and SAF are just similar as they both in the same job along time.
    I truly find the Wenger situation terrible for the man. He has a done good job but he is his own worst enemy. The board have allowed his dedication to the club to confuse his thinking.
    The board are a disgrace. Sometimes one has to be cruel to be kind and letting Wengers legacy to be tarnished to such degree is sad IMHO.

    Don't think it is sad at all. Managers at the other big clubs have been sacked for much less. He is living off the past and the lack of ambition of Stan Kroenke. The situation with Sanchez and Ozil running down their contracts is incredibly poor management and will cost Arsenal millions. Some of that is down to his dithering in the transfer market. Should have sold sanchez in the summer for £60million and bought in someone else like Lemar. Ozil looks like he could go for free as does Wheelchair. Makes me appreciate levy even more.

    However, as well as the world class players (who will probably leave with him), he has a lot of mediocrity. Will be interesting to see how a new manager deals with them. The positive thing is they have a lot of financial might although that hasn't so far helped Utd return to former glories.

    Totally agree. Although Wenger should take some responsibility for his own demise. He refuses to let go. SAF knew when his time was up.

    I've noticed that my mates who follow them have set their goals lower each season for the last few years, from wanting to win the CL or Premiership to qualifying for CL and now the once joke of finishing higher than us is a must do challenge. My old school friend stopped going after 2 seasons at the Emptycrates as he couldn't stand the people around him.

    This is the bizarre part, its a very long, slow, painful decline.

    No other manager would have survived this long.

    My friends are similar, they have gone from being bullish about winning the title to being tentative about getting top 4.

    And they are really conflicted, rightly they adore Wenger for what he has given them, but by the same token their frustration with him boils over these days...

    Brede Hangeland was just on the Norwegian Premier League channel talking about Mark Hughes' defensive qualities. Hangeland had Hughes as the manager of Fulham for one season. He came to a club with a rock solid defence and decided to change it around, resulting in Fulham steering steadily into the relegation zone. When this had gone on for a few months, the back four themselves decided to start playing the way Hodgson had taught them to play and they stopped letting in all the silly goals and finished eight or thereabout.

    I think it's pretty consistent with Watford's survival strategy over the past few years -- get a new manager in, motivate everybody, win a bunch of games and then bin him when it wears off. They'll repeat this as long as they keep avoiding relegation, imo.

    I like him a lot, will be interested to see where he goes next and how he does.

    Undeniably though their form went through the floor once the Everton stuff came up.

    For a time.

    In Watfords defence their form fell apart once Everton flirted with him.

    Im still not sure Id have pulled the trigger so quickly though.

    I read somewhere that they have had 13 managers in the last 10 years.

    Still some way behind Palermo, who have had 48 managers since 2000.
