The ‘Arsene Wenger Out’ campaign could get their wish if they continue to voice their displeasure at the Arsenal boss, according to Harry Redknapp.
The pressure was ramped up on the French manager after his side drew 1-1 at home to Crystal Palace last weekend - leaving them 13 points adrift of Leicester with just five matches remaining - making it nigh on impossible for them to taste Premier League glory.
It means that it will be 12 seasons since Wenger last won the league title - when Arsenal went unbeaten during the entire campaign.

Many Arsenal supporters will vent their frustration by not turning up for tonight's clash with West Brom as the club are set for their lowest-ever Premier League attendance at the Emirates Stadium.
It’s reported that as many as 20,000 seats could be left empty in protest of the club's under-achievements.

It’s firmly believed that Wenger will remain at the club for one more season until his contract expires but some Gooners are desperate for their manager to leave at the end of this trophy-less campaign.
Wenger could leave
And former Spurs boss, Harry Redknapp, has claimed that those Arsenal fans could get their wish if they protest enough.
"The big problem for Arsene Wenger is once you lose the fans, there is no way back,” Redknapp wrote in the Evening Standard.
"I saw the Arsenal fans’ proposed boycott of tonight’s match against West Brom and if it goes ahead to the extent it has been predicted, Arsene will get the message loud and clear.
"After everything he has done for the club, he may feel he’s had enough of it all if the fans properly turn their backs on him,” he added.
Wenger has been at Arsenal for 20 years and was a club hero when he led them to three league titles, including the ‘Invincible’ season in 2003/04.
Redknapp, who managed against Arsenal in many north London derbies, admits he hopes Wenger isn’t forced out of the club.
"It would be a very sad end to a phenomenal career and I hope it doesn’t go that way but there is nothing you can do as a manager to change opinions once they want you out, aside from winning game after game,” he said.
In February, the Gunners were favourites for the title when they beat Leicester 2-1 at the Emirates thanks to an injury-time winner from Danny Welbeck.
However, in the seven Premier League matches that have followed, they have won just twice while they have also crashed out of the FA Cup and the Champions League.
Wenger has stood firm against the criticism and was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail: “I always respect my contract.”
But if the protests continue between now and the end of the season, Wenger may have no choice but to step aside.
