Managers Arsenal should target to replace Arsene Wenger

Dennis Bergkamp touted for Arsenal return as replacement for outgoing academy boss

Lincoln dreaming of Arsenal fairytale

Now we have the laughable "Wexit" banner that may be a new low in the realms of football protests, with the protesters making their voices heard as they marched to Emirates Stadium ahead of Arsenal's FA Cup quarter-final against Lincoln.

While being realistic over the prospect of his team upsetting the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium, where the Imps are set to bring some 9,000 supporters, Cowley is determined not to let the occasion get to his side.

Arsenal were looking to overturn a 5-1 deficit against Bayern Munich from the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash last month.

It clearly did Wenger no harm either that his team should make another step towards a potential record 13th FA Cup triumph, even if to some fans winning silverware in that competition should not be enough to spare him.

But Chelsea, 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League, are closing in on the title and adding the FA Cup would cap an incredible first season for manager Antonio Conte. They may have killed the game, but they couldn't kill the spirit of the Lincoln players. "It's the next game and in the next game, people expect us to win, so there's a pressure there of course".

Lincoln will know Arsenal are vulnerable, they are nearly there for the taking - so going for the jugular from the off should be the plan, with Danny Cowley saying his team are planning to turn this game into nine 10-minute contests. I always do that.

Lincoln City starting XI: Farman; Wood, Raggett, Waterfall, Habergham; Arnold, Power, Woodyard, Hawkridge; Rhead, Muldoon.

Arsenal saw this previous year with Alex Iwobi who started off being played in early Cup games and managed to make is way into the first team as a regular.

Wenger had come under-fire after his side's humiliating 10-2 aggregate defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, with Arsenal issuing a somewhat freaky statement on Thursday hinting Wenger may not be the given a chance to decide his own destiny when his contract expires at the end of this season.

"I've spoken to or have heard about others [former Arsenal colleagues] who would also love to come back".

Wenger had said that fans' opinion will be a factor when he decides whether to stay on, while club chairman Sir Chips Keswick issued a statement that a decision will be taken "mutually" and communicated "at the right time".
