The French boss of Arsenal has been coming under increasing criticism in recent weeks following a poor run of form, that has seen them slip to 10th in the Premier League table - 15 points adrift of leaders Manchester United.

Arsenal may not have lifted a trophy since winning the FA Cup in 2005, but they have qualified for the Champions League every season since 1997/98.

And, this according to Wilson, should earn Wenger respect from the fans and media.

Speaking on BBC, Wilson said: "He has given us the best 15 years in the history of the club and we're always finishing in the top four (to qualify for the Champions League.

"He is someone who has won things that no other manager has won and I'm notably talking about the unbeaten season and no manager has done that, obviously we have amazing faith in him.

"And I would be upset if he wasn't saying we have to find a solution to the problem. I don't think they'll slip further.

"But they have to accept that they are going to have to pay the wages which they never have paid (before)."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
