That’s true, but in that same period we had won the FA Cup, League Cup and got to two European finals, winning one of them.
It’s true that Newcastle had a great side for a few seasons but historically neither Newcastle, who haven’t won a trophy for half a century or Leeds, who been in the second tier of football along with Newcastle, were bigger than us.
Everton have a bit more history than those two but even they don’t come close to ours.
Just to reiterate, I’m not saying that Wenger wasn’t the greatest manager we have had, just that I find it unbelievable that some posters don’t have any sense of what a big club we were before Wenger.
When I here some of these comments it makes me wonder what these “supporters” are going to do when Wenger leaves.
Are they going to follow him, wherever he goes, or slum it with us?
I have been going to Arsenal way before most supporters on here, and I can assure the ones who don’t know, that we were massively supported and respected and have always been considered a big club.
I always remember the great Bobby Robson, when referring to us, always called us “The Arsenal” because he knew what a great club we were and steeped in tradition.
We are also the only club to have a station named after them.
