Arsene Wenger to be sacked?
Arsene Wenger has been cut from 25/1 to 5/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave their job following Arsenal’s Capital One Cup defeat to Bradford.
The loss, to a side who were 2,000/1 to win the tournament heading into the first round, has also prompted online bookmakers to open betting on whether the Frenchman will still be at the club come the end of the season.
You can now get odds of 5/2 that Wenger will not see the campaign out.
Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer said: “Failing to beat Bradford would be worrying enough if Wenger had named an experimental squad, but the fact that such a strong side was named rings real alarm bells.
“Arsenal’s board are certainly not the sort to make rash decisions but serious questions are surely being asked with the current side looking so uninspiring.”
Pep Guardiola is considered as the 5/1 favourite to be the next Arsenal manager with Jose Mourinho and Reme Garde following at 14/1 in a market, which is yet to attract any real interest despite their latest failure.

So quick to blame one of the premier leagues greatest managers. The fact is-
1. The club finances can't compete with the big boys, and haven't since Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea. Always therefore shopping in different (second rate) market (eg Gervinho).
2. Other clubs scounting programmes have copied/caught up with Wenger (eg Newcastle), more difficult to scout the next big thing from Africa/Brazil/whereever.
3. Greedy players moving for wages such as Nasri, Van Persie, Clichy (Fabregas exempted, but still a big loss nonetheless) etc to the aforementioned big boys. Can't hope to compete if losing best players every season. Now going to lose Walcott....
Be careful what you wish for....................
it time to spring clean early, sell sell sell, and then buy buy buy, walcott to go because he wants to go, mertersacker more like merterkaka ie - s**t, ramsey all for himself not the team mr i can't follow the game. gervinho can't pass or don't want too. looking for glory goals what don't come off.
chamach more like give him a shmack. and all the so called sick or not fit get rid of as they are still getting wages, arsenal want players that what to play and be proud of the shirt they wear,
You have got to remember what wenger has done with what he has, its pretty good really, every year he has qualified for europe, if big money hadnt come to city and chelsea every year it would man u and arsenal fighting for the title every season.
So wenger is a bloody good manager really
I sincerely hope he's not sacked as the new manager may win some silver ware.
