JOHN CROSS: Once first to spot when Arsenal heroes should go, Wenger’s the last to see his own decline

Date Posted,April 11, 2017

Arsene Wenger used to have a remarkable knack of spotting when players were approaching their sell-by date.

Arsenal legends Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry were both ruthlessly shown the door because boss Wenger believed their careers were on the way down.

So how ironic that the manager has lost his magic touch to such an extent that he has failed to spot the decline in his own performance and is now foolishly clinging on to power.

Wenger is being destroyed by loyalty — a familiar theme running through the club which is now threatening to undermine his 21-year reign.

The Gunners’ top brass have been too loyal to Wenger.

Wenger has been too loyal to a squad of under-performing players.

And if anything, the supporters have been too loyal to Wenger.
