Pressure mounts on Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as more banners emerge in the most unusual places around the world.
The Gunners looked potential title contenders when the 2016-17 season kicked off, but all hopes seemed to fade when their unbeaten run came to an end, at the hands of Ronald Koeman's Everton and Ashley Williams. Fans were optimistic that it was just a minor defeat and it was coming their way for a long, long time, but Wenger's inability to keep his team in contention for the coveted trophy after that, has cost him points in multiples of three, and has seen his team falling behind league leaders Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs and Manchester City.
Wenger's impotence to lead his side to Champions League glory has long tested the patience of fans who have been bearing with him for far too long; since for a team who has made it 20 times to Europe's elite competition in 20 years, it is hard to believe that they haven't won a single Champions League trophy yet.
Arsenal's mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich this season and the season two years back has ripped apart Wenger's reputation, who is well known for his scintillating style of play, but also for his incompetence at winning any major silverware, that implies good football without any trophies to show for it.
A string of poor performances in the League that included a 2-1 loss to Everton, a 3-3 draw against Bournemouth, and a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea, a 10-2 aggregate defeat against the Bavarians, and a recent 3-1 thrashing by West Brom, all but justify the #wengerout banners popping up in unusual places all over the world:

Being Arsenal manager is the greatest job in the world
IMO it is sad we've had a man so unworthy of it holding it for 10+ years#WengerOut
