Arsenal's season, which once promised so much, is once again ending in disillusionment and failure.

Gunners supporters, frustrated with the way they club is being run, have plotted to leave the Emirates Stadium in the 75th minute of their clash with West Bromwich Albion on Thursday night.

The protest entitled 'Wenger Out, Walk Out' appears to originate from a section called 'Arsenal Action' who have almost 15,000 followers on Twitter.

Their message states: "On Thursday April 21st all supporters are encouraged to leave the stadium at the 75th minute mark. It's time to send a message to the board that we are frustrated. Angry. Upset. Want Changes.

"The game is meaningless because of Wenger's incompetence. Help us send a message to Gazidis and Kroenke by leaving your seat at the 75th minute."

The account also tweeted the below urging other Arsenal fans to get involved come Thursday night.

Liverpool held an identical protest earlier in the season over proposed ticket prices rises but it backfired somewhat at they conceded two late goals to draw 2-2 with Sunderland.

Arsenal supporters have been demanding changes to the way their club is managed for years.

Back in December 2012, the Black Scarf Movement organised a march before a home defeat to Swansea City, with placards questioning Ivan Gazidis' role in particular.

Other banners with the statements such as 'Let's kick greed out of football' were waved while the usual chants of 'Spend some f***ing money' were sung.

The North Londoner's have fallen behind bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur this year despite a huge financial advantage generated by their increased match-day revenue.

Once season ticket renewals for next season are banked in May, Arsenal will be sitting on cash reserves of approximately £225 to 250 million.

Arsene Wenger's reluctance to spend money on a squad clearly in need of strengthening is one of the main reasons behind the protest.

Keeping some money for a rainy day is advisable, but the Gunners are hoarding more cash than the rest of the Premier League combined.

Last summer Arsenal were the only club in Europe not to sign an outfield player. Should they fail to qualify for the Champions League this year, they'll struggle to attract the calibre of player they need.
