It’s fair to say you can hear a lot more ‘Wenger Out’ voices than ‘Wenger In’ right now.
Arsenal are enduring a desperate run of form, suffering back to back 3-0 defeats by Man City in just four days and finding themselves further and further adrift of their top four rivals.
Arsene Wenger is facing his most challenging spell in his 22-year tenure in north London with morale at an all time low.
So another defeat to Brighton on Sunday would be almost unforgivable.
Wenger had a number of decisions to make considering his side’s terrible recent results – and he made a big one by leaving Aaron Ramsey out of the line up against the Seagulls.
And it hasn’t sat well with Gunners fans, who feel Ramsey is in the minority of players who have actually been performing of late.
So much so that the conspiracy theory merchants are convinced the reason for his absence is more meaningful than a simple case of being rested.
Ramsey’s omission is conveniently timed, with plenty of reports in the Sunday papers claiming he is seeking a way out of the club this summer.
So is the Welshman the ‘rat’ in the camp?
