Interview with Boro Primorac about Wenger in Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List

Is Arsene Wenger nearing the end at Arsenal?
«Wenger isn’t considering leaving Arsenal. Of course it is bad to lose 5-1 in the Champions League, first in Munich and then at Emirates, even though it came against Bayern. After all, at the group stage we witnessed also such a heavy defeat. We understand fans are not happy, neither are we.»

But fans want him out!
«There are no less grateful people in football than fans and ex-players. Arsenal’s strength in the past 20 and more years has been Wenger, it's not all about results, but also business part of the club.»

Last question: So, there is no change at Arsenal?

«To my knowledge, no. However, football brings every day something new. I have no intention to move at this age, only London and Split» (second-largest city of Croatia, located on the Adriatic coast).

What do you think about this?


Hardly a surprise.

So AT, did you happen to read, according to Boro Primorac, nobody is more ungrateful than supporters who want twatene out.


They're all paying each other off and sucking each other off.

March 17, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterWrinkly Voyeur

I wonder if Wenger paid for that plane flying over the stadium with the banner supporting Wenger. Seems like the sort of thing he'd do.


That did cross my mind.

March 18, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChris J

Haha, good one :)

Also with Chris J - I immediately thought Wenger paid for that plane.

March 18, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNic

Ha ! Good job vacancy there, A.T. I'm sure it will attract even more self serving opportunists to the club than we already have here now.

Can you please create more humourous "vacancies" for other positions at Arsene F.C.? Things have got so bad under Wenger that we are now mocking our own club. But why not? Everyone else is, as the climate at our club becomes ever more farcical.

"In Arsene we rust."

His arrogance beggars belief. I once admired and respected this man but now detest him! Yes, you can blame the players for yet another abject performance, however it is the manager who has drained the life force out of them (and the club) and who must take full responsibility for what is now manifesting.

He doesn't love the club, only himself!! If I was playing under him I would want out and, from what I can see, most of the players feel the same.

March 19, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMICHAEL.B

AT, it was apparently Sir French Fries Keswick who had one of his relatives pay for the twatene we trust banner.

Your thoughts?


The point was made, as intended, so the other plane was a waste of time and money.

March 19, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterWrinkly Voyeur

In response to Spectrum's request, might I submit another vacancy at Arsenal.

Below the job title can be found the skills, competencies and experience required of the successful candidate:

Defensive Coach - Arsenal FC, London, UK.

End message.

Rumours of Wenger signing some sort of contract are gathering pace, makes me feel sick. If that's the case then that's it for me. For the last 8 years I've been emotionless, but all of a sudden this intense anger has overcome me. Please keep us informed of any protests, as I NEED to make the effort to go to at least a couple.


Will do.

March 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJoe P

Dear Lord, please let this not be true! Not another two years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

March 20, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMICHAEL.B

After Wenger leaves we'll see AKBs true colours if they don't give the new manager at least three seasons (unless he proves to be even worse), then they're clearly not real Arsenal fans.

March 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChris J

This testimony of a Local Fan should be considered by the silent majority fans that do nothing.

"I have said it so many times, as fans we are a pathetic bunch, wimps, keyboard warriors, I would guess virtually none of the moaners attended the March, so we deserve everything that Wenger does to us and our club.

This situation would never arise at any other club in the world because their fans get off their arses ,wave handkerchiefs, March, demonstrate at the very doors of the club, we can’t even muster 1000 for a bloody walk.

I was included in the ‘do nothing brigade’ until last year, I gave up my ST, wrote a letter to Gazidis outlining my frustrations. I am an ardent WENGER OUT man and will continue to vent my anger any way I can.

Our fans are weak,NOT all of them but a very large majority. Are they scared or just worried at being called a WOB? Seems to me that the AKBs have the upper hand both inside the ground and in the media. I sincerely hope that WHEN he signs a new contract and the club announce it, there will be carnage at the ground in the media wherever it’s possible. My club is dying, and will soon be dead.

It’s quite bizarre, how people are trying to work out some crack formula to get Arsene out.

It’s not rocket science.

Simply don’t renew your season tickets,stop buying merchandise. Just simply protest with your pockets en mass.

Trust me, the club will react. As that’s the only language that they understand a financial tsunami.

If you want to maintain some sort of dignity, in terms of doing it the “Arsenal way”, vote with with your pockets. A simple thanks for the service, but won’t be renewing this season. All the best.

Thanks for your interest in my affairs.

Hit the hierarchy where it hurts, in their Bottom Line.

Wenger is going to contribute to their revenue streams dropping; the fans also have to help that happen.

With all that’s gone on before, I feel it’s not enough to protest and fly banners et al. Much more is needed. If it weren’t, Wenger would not be signing a new contract.

Half empty stadiums, refusing to buy food and drink at matches, programs, merchandise etc. Stop subscriptions to AFC media and any other way to dry up AFC’s income.

Just stop paying for anything AFC. It’s a good start, back that up with more articulate, negative press about Wenger and his management team/tactics.

Make it a combined, controlled and coordinated effort and we just might stand a chance."

Just sharing a link for fans that give a damn, especially for overseas gooners.

Nevermind the AKB Bollocks, just show the world that you care by participating.

"Weʼre raising £4,000 to fund the #WengerOut Campaign.

We are raising funds to help with demonstrations, advertisements and banners to encourage the owners of Arsenal, to remove Arsene Wenger from the position of manager. He has constantly delivered unsatisfactory results, and lifelong Gooners are fed up."

March 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterForeign Gooner

Signs are that he signed already, disgusting.

March 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJoe P

Enjoy your posts Arsenal Truth - keep up the good work.

On another note,not wishing to sound like a party popper, but one of your bloggers on here has literally copied and pasted one of my comments from another forum onto this forum and has not even had the courtesy to cite the source.

You know who you are... To the unnamed culprit, if you are going to plagiarise, cite the source. If not, at least post the comments in your own words.



This happens to me all the time, treat it as a compliment - it means your thoughts are resonating with people and they cannot think of a better way of saying the same thing.

March 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPhD07

@AT-fair enough.I really should take it as a compliment.


March 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPhD07

Look, not pointing any fingers out there, but maybe it’s just a coincidence or fate or whatever but the so-called Pro-Arsene types prior to the season wax lyrically about this is the year. New signings are imminent. Arsene is going to give all the clubs a run for their money. Get behind the team. If not, you are not a supporter. And just as the season unfolds,the same cycle of events at AFC present themselves. The annual capitulations, the routine thrashings/humiliations manifest itself. What follows? The Pro Arsenal fans literally disappear, like foxes seeing an oncoming car.

None of their furtive pronouncements that could be heard/seen on here pre-season,come to fruition. A 5-1×2 (10-2) slaughterhouse job by BM, 3-1 demolition job by Liverpool, and a 3-1 bottle job to shake my head W. Brom sees them scarping off into the burrows.

And just as the international break rears it’s ugly head, like night follows day,the Pro-Arsenal pack are back in force.It’s almost as if they have collective amnesia. No mention of the atrocious displays or slaughterhouse demolition jobs by our opponents..

None whatsoever, suddenly the discourse turns to deflecting blame away from the big elephant in the room,to who can we apportion blame on given our current standing. They very well understand what the problem is, but it seems almost a sin or sacrilege to point the finger in the direction of the main culprit.

Much like on Untold, every defeat is blamed on some referee cabal having some agenda towards AFC. Similarly with Pro Arsenal fans, the same cycle. It’s just a bit weird.

March 21, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPhD07

AT what do you think it will take to get Wenger out because it looks like the protests are not going to work?


Not enough people turned up. Supporters obviously still care more about him than the club, until that changes, nothing will.

March 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterG

I going to cancel my membership if he signs, haven't gone to a game in three years anyway.

Btw anymore protests planned?


There is one planned for Man City I believe.

March 23, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterChris J

Hi guy,

Just a quick one. We are getting organised with protest group to step up after international break. I want to make contact with all Wenger out-supportive blogs and websites to get info out to and also drive fans to the just giving page https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/chris-butler as we need funds to keep coming in to keep up the imaginative stunts alongside the marches etc. we have planned.

Please email us direct with contact details so we can drop information released before games too.
