If Wenger wins the Premier League this season, it could be his greatest triumph yet… But we’ve taken a look at his previous achievements, to see where it could rank.
Arsenal won the Premier League and FA cup double in Arsene Wenger’s first full season. It was made all the more impressive because Arsenal had to claw back an 11 point lead from Manchester United. It announced to the rest of the league that Wenger had arrived – well and truly.
Arsenal won the double again – but this time the Premier League came far more comfortably, with a healthy seven point margin. We were unbeaten at home, and actually scored in every league game. We also discovered a very useful winger known as Robert Pires during this season and won the title at Old Trafford! The Gunners then won the FA cup against Chelsea. Not a bad way to finish the season, eh…?
Probably the most satisfying for Arsene Wenger so far… it’s not because he went through an historic season unbeaten playing the most incredible football that had people purring about it all these years, or because Chelsea were on the receiving end of some of their worst losses during this period, but rather because Arsene Wenger was ridiculed for the audacity of actually claiming that his team could go a whole season unbeaten after basically throwing the title away the season before. He silenced his critics in completely legendary fashion.
The Wenger Out Brigade (WOB) led by Piers Morgan has been at its loudest since the earliest point of this season. Wenger asked to be given until the end of the season before you judge him, and surely he’s earned that. He has a slight chance of winning the league this season after going on a winning run – and title glory in 2014/15 will eclipse even his first full season in charge. It will even be more memorable if he goes on to win the FA Cup, too, which will represent his third double. Gunners – can he do it…?
