Wenger is wobbling... so how much do the Arsenal board want to keep him?

The invitation to shareholders for a question and answer session with Arsene Wenger at the Emirates last Thursday promised anyone who could not attend that a full version would soon be screened on Arsenal TV. What supporters will see on the club's in-house television station at 7.30pm tonight is a heavily edited, one-hour package bearing little relation to the events inside the Royal Oak Restaurant when 40 prickly shareholders made Wenger consider the Real Madrid Option for the first time. The flak was flying, with the Arsenal manager fending off questions from disgruntled supporters while chief executive Ivan Gazidis, chairman Peter Hill-Wood, director Ken Friar and club secretary David Miles slipped further back into their seats in silence. They left Wenger to it, a sitting duck for the shareholders. They saw him slaughtered for selling five midfielders, they squirmed whenone supporter was given a round of applause for demanding the sale ofEmmanuel Adebayor and then saw him snap back at 'all your negativity'.All of that landed on the cutting room floor at ATV.
