Is it finally time for Arsene Wenger to be shown the door at Arsenal?

After a disastrous home defeat to Championship side Blackburn in the FA Cup, Wenger is left with only the Champions League and a top four finish to fight for.

With a two leg affair against Bayern Munich - finalists in two of the last three years - starting on Tuesday night, only the most optimistic of Gunners fans can be pinning hope on European glory.

So is it time for a change at the top? The fans have stuck through Wenger through thick and thin, with their 'In Arsene We Trust' banners, but many are finally starting to lose patience and think it's time for a change.

Without a trophy since their 2005 FA Cup win, who would have thought it would come to this when Arsenal were sweeping aside all before them in their unbeaten 2003/04 season.

But with that great side long gone Wenger has made some more than questionable buys with a seemingly particular blind spot in defence.

Per Mertesacker is surely the slowest defender seen in the Premier League since Laurent Blanc sparked chants of 'Taxi for Blanc' from the Old Trafford faithful.

Sebastien Squillaci and Laurent Koscielny have hardly been inspired buys and Andre Santos has been quickly loaned out after a disastrous spell at the Emirates.

Wenger cannot be blamed for Robin van Persie's exit - once he refused to sign a new contract there was little that could be done to make him stay - and it does make you wonder how long the likes of Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott will stick around if the trophy drought continues.

Perhaps Wenger has become stale at Arsenal and a change of scenery would be best for fans and the manager himself.

If he does go, who could do any better? It would be a surprise if any of the very top managers such as Jose Mourinho were prepared to take over.

Maybe this could be the move David Moyes has been waiting for? A switch to the Emirates would enable Moyes to take charge of a high-profile team with the financial backing to match. Having worked on a shoestring budget at Goodison Park, a big-money move to Arsenal could reignite both Moyes and Arsenal.
