Wenger rubbishes deal report

Arsene Wenger says reports he is in line for a contract extension at Arsenal are "completely wrong" and designed to make mischief.

Stories in Monday's newspapers suggested a deal until 2016 would soon be on the table despite growing dissatisfaction among some supporters with the club's lack of trophies.

The Arsenal manager's current contract expires in 2014 and he has consistently said the time is not right to discuss a new one.

Asked directly about the story ahead of Tuesday's game against Bayern Munich, a clearly irritated Wenger said: "That is the wrong information.

"I've worked for 16 years in England and I think I deserve a bit more credit than wrong information with only one intention - to harm.

"If it's good information that comes from nowhere, it's alright. But this is the wrong information that comes from nowhere. It's completely wrong."

Wenger waited until the final year of his contract before signing his current deal in August 2010.

Asked about his long-term plans back in September the Frenchman, whose last trophy was the FA Cup in 2005, said: "I'm not in the mood to think about it.

"I will assess my own performances and then make a decision. If I don't do well, I have to consider my future."

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
