Arsene Wenger has become unsackable at Arsenal - and for good reason

Arsene Wenger has become completely synonymous with Arsenal Football Club and not just because they share the same first five letters.

The Frenchman arrived in London 20 years ago and has made the Gunners his own, bestowing them with a philosophy still apparent two decades on from his arrival.

Wenger has innovated the English game in terms of training and transfers whilst accomplishing so much, steering Arsenal to a famous unbeaten season in 2003/04 and into the Champions League for 18 consecutive seasons (19 if they qualify this time around).

Arsenal’s troubles over the past decade have been well documented, failing to win the Premier League since 2004.

Their barren spell seemed likely to end this season with their main title rivals struggling for form and consistency throughout, yet the Gunners have failed to take advantage of the chances afforded to them and now face another trophyless season.

Such slip ups have seen fans grow increasingly frustrated, not just because the Premier League title now appears out of Arsenal's reach, but because they will likely lose out to one of Leicester City, who were favourites for relegation at the beginning of the season, or rivals Tottenham.

Ultimately, Wenger has never had a better time to end his title drought, especially so given he has the world-class talents of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Petr Cech at his disposal.

The questions that are now being asked is whether the Frenchman has taken Arsenal as far as he can and if he should call time on his 20-year stay.

Fans would argue the answer is yes, but the simple fact is Wenger won't be leaving any time soon. Supporters will groan at this point, but after all the Frenchman has done for Arsenal, he's almost unsackable.

And there's no chance of him walking either. Wenger isn't the sort of person to give up and the day he leaves Arsenal will likely be the day he retires.

But then again, why would anyone want Wenger out anyway? The 66-year-old offers stability and a club philosophy that's hard to find elsewhere in the Premier League.

Fans can call for his sacking as much as they like but, especially with the way in which football is evolving, Arsenal would struggle to replace Wenger, whose legacy has shaped the club and English football on the whole.
