Winds of frustration, trepidation swirl at Arsenal with Wenger centered in crosshairs

Wenger, who has been in his position since 1996, was speaking after Arsenal's 3-1 loss at West Bromwich Albion that kept the team in fifth place — outside the Champions League qualification positions. It was Arsenal's fourth loss in five Premier League games.

The 67-year-old Wenger has previously said he will announce a decision on his future "in March or April."

His contract expires at the end of the season.

Wenger says "we are in a unique bad patch like we've never had in 20 years where we lose game after game at the moment, and that is much more important than my future."
