Eighty-eight per cent of Arsenal Supporters Trust (AST) members say they do not support Arsene Wenger remaining in charge of the club beyond the end of the season.

AST members held their annual general meeting in central London on Monday night, following Arsenal's 2-1 loss away to Brighton on Sunday.

Before the meeting, each member was individually surveyed and asked if they support Wenger remaining as manager of the club beyond the 2017/18 season.

Eighty-eight per cent of those who responded voted against Wenger being in charge for the 2018/19 campaign. Five per cent said they were undecided, while a further seven per cent believe Wenger himself should make the decision when he sees fit.

The AST has over 1,000 members with 450 of those participating in the survey.

AST spokesperson Nigel Phillips told Sky Sports News: "We just can't go on like this. Maybe we are at a time change is coming and surely the board and owner must realise that. (Wenger) is like a desperate man clinging on."

Representatives of the AST have been granted a private meeting with chief executive Ivan Gazidis on Sunday and they will present him with the results of their survey.

Arsenal have declined Sky Sports News' request for a comment.

There are 30 million reasons why he will be gone.
No longer able to qualify for CL - net loss £30 million
30,000 missing punters at an A level game food and merchandise losse - franchisers will not be happy and will drop bids
Players on high wages underachieving, value falling, wont be able to sell on - except at a loss
Sponsors will be evaluating the worth of their investments
TV companies will show less Arsenal games as crab football not in demand



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

It's the " he should decide himself brigade" that astound me.I bet if they were or are running a business and an employee was underachieving they would soon give them the sack.

Thing is padre, the TV money these days largely nullifies the cl money. And our model was based on an income provided by cl which is now provided by sky and by without us having to do diddly.

November mid-term FY shown our turnover and profit are increasing year-on-year without CL Cup; mostly due to increasing TV Broadcasting rights revenues and growing commercial businesses.

US$3-billion reason why Arsene Wenger will see out his contract.

Silent Stan is fully focused to complete Inglewood by 2019 and not interested in that "£30 million paper loss" opportunity cost until 2019/20 season.

Until all these negativisms had an impact and caused Arsenal Holdings plc share price to dive, Silent Stan will just happily ignored all these happenings with his Arsenal capital gain keeps on appreciating ever year.

The one and only way that Arsene Wenger will be sacked is starting this weekend, less than 30,000 fans turned up, noisy demonstrations at Emirates for all home games.
The chain effect will be that an ugly and tense atmosphere at Emirates will also drive away tourists with no sane tourist agency willing to recommend their clients the Emirates, clients who wish to sample the "live" atmosphere of a premiership game.
Pummeling matchday revenues will catch the attention of Gazidis and Josh ... who will report to Silent Stan it will not get better but only get worse for next season.

It will be interesting to read how much matchday revenues had declined in FY2017/18 report (compare to FY2016/17).

This values Arsenal at £2.084bn, which is now a lot higher than the £1.5bn figure Forbes decided Arsenal was worth last time they did their so-called ‘rich list’ of football’s most valuable clubs.

For several years the share price indicated a value well below the Forbes figure; now it’s suddenly much higher. What will Forbes do? Who knows – I think they just make it up anyway. They may as well, for all the relevance it has to anything.

Anyway, in conclusion:
whoever next buys an Arsenal share will probably set yet another record, given that brokers have set a mid-price £2,500 above the current record

if Kroenke or Usmanov are going to make each other offers, the cost has got substantially higher lately

if anyone else was thinking of making a bid they’ll probably be thinking again
