After the heavy defeat suffered by the Gunners at Stamford Bridge, almost a replicate of the margin they won Chelsea, this time they fell 3-1 to the Blues at the Bridge. Manchester United legend Gary Neville being disgusted by the behaviour of an Arsenal fan, expressing their disappointment with the management of Arsene Wenger, whereby displaying cards saying enough is enough. Gary Neville has come out to call and called him an idiot for such display. The former Man United defender has voiced his dismay at such critics of Arsene Wenger by saying: "Arsene Wenger's biggest challenge is that he's been there such a long time and theres always that sort of grass is greener," Neville said on Sky Sports after Manchester United's 3-0 win over Leicester. "If Arsene Wenger was Jurgen Klopp and he was currently above Manchester City, above Liverpool, above Manchester United that have spent nearly £150-200million between them we'd be saying he's doing a great job. "At the start of the season, forget Arsene Wenger's the manager, and Arsenal are there, you could argue the profile of the players would change if a new manager comes in, they could end up in eighth or seventh could Arsenal. With their budget, they potentially could. "If Arsene Wenger was Jurgen Klopp now, we'd be saying he's doing a good job, cause he's 18 months in. "Actually, is Arsene Wenger not just doing a great job full stop? And I have to question that." "I walked out the Chelsea ground yesterday and there was a couple of these Arsenal fan TV camera things everywhere and to be honest it was embarrassing listening to it and watching it. "I was watching Chelsea fans take the mickey out of them which was a bit funny and I was watching Arsenal fans slating and slanging into him and I thought to myself, he doesn't deserve that, that's one thing he doesn't deserve – he's done an unbelievable job. "And if he announced his retirement at the end of the season tomorrow, everybody would come in with tributes and say he's amazing. In eight months time, 10 months time they might be saying I wish he was still here. "We hate managers being sacked. I feel very uncomfortable sitting here supporting the theory that the grass is greener. "We all lord Jurgen Klopp, Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola for their philosophies, 'oh they're brilliant'. "Arsene Wenger's got the most brilliant philosophy over this last 15 years, he's stuck to his guns, he's never changed because of you and I. "What's happened is we've all become board of they guy because he's been there so long."
