Arsene Wenger has won two FA Cups in successive years but won't repeat that trick this year after losing to Watford. With the title looking unlikely as well, will this be the end?
Two consecutive FA Cup trophies have placated Arsenal supporters to at least some extent over the past two seasons. There will not be a third. With significant unrest among supporters and a perception that this season represents Arsenal's best chance to win a title in the foreseeable future, will a failure to do so mean the end for Wenger? The reasonable question that should be asked next is who the Gunners might get to replace Wenger. With Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola unavailable there isn't an obvious candidate with a resume that screams "I can do better". Look for names to start emerging soon. Mar 13 - 2:20 PM

Arsenal's 4-0 win over Hull City means that the weekend's scheduled Premier League match with West Brom has been postponed in favor of a quarter final match-up with Watford.

No rescheduled date has been announced for the West Brom match-up but the cancellation for this weekend means that fantasy managers will only have five matches to choose from this weekend when putting together line-ups for salary cap and draft leagues. This will be especially challenging in draft formats where the number of players participating may not be sufficient for the number of squad places available in larger leagues. Try to plan accordingly.

There were lots of places that fingers could be pointed but Arsene Wenger has to take the brunt of the blame for Arsenal's 3-2 loss to Manchester United.

Arsene Wenger has taken more than his share of deserved plaudits during his career but it looks like it is his turn to take the blame again. Arsenal have been routinely poor so far during 2016 despite relatively good health. The Gunners have been goal-shy and it appears that Wenger's insistence on sticking with a core of young players he has brought along - Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Aaron Ramsey specifically - will see him fail at his best chance for a title in years. If things don't turn around, the "Wenger Out" crowd will certainly gain momentum heading into the summer.

Arsenal, looking to capture some of the magic of Leicester City's team-building magic, have recruited away top Foxes scout Ben Wrigglesworth.

Arsenal won't be the only club looking to duplicate what clubs like Leicester City and West Ham have done in the transfer market in recent seasons with captures like Riyad Mahrez, Ngolo Kante, and Dimitri Payet but the Gunners are taking a proactive step in that direction. The hiring of Ben Wrigglesworth will be seen as a move to bring new blood, and new blood with a successful recent track record, into the scouting mix.

Arsene Wenger's grip on the Arsenal helm slipped further as the Gunners fell 3-2 at the Britannia.

Arsenal were rotten for two thirds of the match and failed to fight back despite goals from Santi Cazorla from the spot and Aaron Ramsey from a nice volley. The cries for Wenger's dismissal will continue to grow.

Arsene Wenger has signed the rumored three year contract to extend his stay at Arsenal through the end of the 2016-17 season.

Arsenal supporters as a group are probably still split on what they think about Wenger even after the club broke it's nine season trophy drought with the FA Cup win. Critics will be looking for Wenger to strengthen key gaps at the base of midfield, at forward, and right back with the sort of big names you'd associate with a title contender. Whether Wenger has failed to do so in recent seasons due to financial constraints, his perception of value in the market, or the willingness of top level players to come to the Emirates is unclear. With Arsenal's financial position improving considerably over the last two years, the first reason seems to be off the table this summer. Wenger now has at least three seasons to show everyone that the Emirates project was worth the wait.

FA Cup winning manager Arsene Wenger is set to sign a three year extension at Arsenal at a salary of £8million per year. The signing will end a season of waiting and wondering about the manager's status.

With Arsenal's title drought finally over after 9 years, Arsene Wenger will be rewarded with a big new contract that is expected to be signed in the next two days. Rumors abound that the new contract comes with a hefty sum of money available to spend in the transfer market this summer. Supporters will be eager to see if Wenger finally makes the sort of splash that the Emirates Stadium was supposed to make possible when the project was launched. The goodwill engendered by the FA Cup win will quickly erode if reinforcements aren't brought in over the summer.

With injuries to Olivier Giroud, Nicklas Bendtner and now Theo Walcott - who left today's FA Cup match vs Tottenham on a stretcher - plaguing manager Arsene Wenger at the moment, a move for FC Porto striker Jackson Martinez becomes increasingly more likely.

According to Martinez, who has been played phenomenal since moving to Portuguese club FC Porto (49 goals in 64 appearances), a transfer to Arsenal in January would be a dream move for him. "I cheered for Arsenal when I was a kid – I love their style of play. It’s flowing and open with a lot of first touch passes. It would be suitable for a player like me. If I get a chance to play for a high level club like Arsenal I wouldn’t hesitate to accept it." The Colombian international is valued at around £30 million and is expected to depart Porto sometime within the next year.
