Since Arsene Wenger’s arrival at Arsenal, the Gunners have not missed a season of Champions League football. And finishing in the top 4 appears to be the Frenchman’s definition of the bare minimum he needs to achieve at Arsenal any season.
While Wenger’s bare minimum and the fact that he turns in a healthy profit each year keeps in the Arsenal job, one can’t help but wonder would the fans be willing to forgo a year of Champions League football if it meant ending their long trophy drought? Would winning say the League Cup like Liverpool did last year or as Arsenal almost did a few seasons ago (sad loss to Birmingham) be considered a better campaign by the fans?
Having given the idea a lot of thought, one can’t help but wonder that a failure to make it to the top four would be catastrophic for the Gunners on multiple counts. The revenue loss of missing out on the Champions League alone would set the club back a couple of years, and it would need to be Trophy + Top 4 that will be deemed a successful season by Arsenal, and not one or the other.
