BELEAGUERED Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has chose to stay at the club, British media reported yesterday.
"It's always frustrating when you're not starting but, the manager will tell you, I've been working my socks off in training".
Pulis said before the match that he thought Wenger would want to carry on for another six years and a post-match chat with the Frenchman has not changed that opinion.
Manager Wenger has come under increasing pressure in recent weeks with the Gunners' form tailing off leaving their hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League looking bleak.
A mass "Wenger Out" protest was held prior to their Champions League second leg mauling to Bayern, while a banner flew over their defeat at West Brom at the weekend saying 'No Contract #WengerOut'.
Arsenal's supporters might be mad at Wenger's decision to stay as last week they went through great lengths to show that they don't want him anymore.
Although the offer of a new two-year deal has been on the table of some time, there had been speculation that Wenger would call time on his Emirates career after over two decades at the club.
The real challenge, however, is believed to be selling this news to Arsenal's fans, most of whom are not particularly happy with the club's current state of affairs.
"I take a bigger perspective than that".
Not even the battle in the skies above the Hawthorns could distract from the humiliating defeat meted out to Arsenal on the pitch, with Wenger's side losing 3-1 to West Brom.
"We are in a unique bad patch that we never had in 20 years, we lose game after game at the moment and for me that is much more important than my future", Wenger said.
Given that he worked with Wenger in Japan and then joined Arsenal in 1996 too, he probably has a better idea than most as to what the veteran coach is thinking. 'It's not the last result that will decide what I will do. I don't judge other people. So, you will soon know. As for all the rest, everybody has to look at themselves'.
