Arsenal fans are planning a bizarre 'Wenger Out' protest vs Chelsea

Arsenal seem to be having their mid-season crisis a little early this time around after losing two of their opening three games.

Having scraped past Leicester, Arsene Wenger's men have gone on to suffer a defeat against Stoke and a complete humbling away to Liverpool.

It hasn't been the most enjoyable summer for Gunners fans, despite it promising so much with the early signings of Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac.

Alexis Sanchez has been kept in north London against his will and could leave for nothing in 12 months' time.

Meanwhile, his potential replacement Thomas Lemar refused to leave Monaco because he wasn't willing to give up Champions League football.

There was also the small matter of Wenger being given a new two-year contract.

The Emirates faithful devoted huge amounts of time and money trying to convince the board to part with the Frenchman after 21 years of service, but to no avail.

The immovable object that is Le Professeur is refusing to be dragged from the dugout.

However, the 'Wenger Out' brigade aren't ready to give up their crusade just yet and despite his lengthy extension, his future is still a major talking point.

Desperate times, desperate measures 

Arsenal's next outing will see them play Bournemouth and after that, they will travel to Stamford Bridge to play champions Chelsea.

The travelling contingent have a plan in place to express their feelings known during the trip to west London, which will be televised. This is possibly even more bizarre than the 'No New Contract' plane at West Brom last term:

One fan on Twitter has revealed hundreds of fake £50 notes with the slogan "bank of bulls***" and pictures of Wenger's face printed on them.

The reality is that however much Arsenal fans march, wave banners, or chant anti-Wenger slogans, the board will only get rid of the 67-year-old when they see fit.

Perhaps the Chelsea game will mark a turning point in their season, but it doesn't seem likely given that Arsenal have won just two games out of their last 21 against last season's top six.

Should Wenger be given more time? Have your say in the comments.
