Who Said It? Arsène Wenger Or Basil Fawlty? (QUIZ)

BASIL FAWLTY ARSENE WENGER
Who said it? |

Forget the Hornbyite nouveaux fans, sussed Arsenal supporters are now struggling to justify why Arsène Wenger should be the club's manager for the 2013-14 season.

After the League Cup elimination at Bradford in December, the weekend home defeat to Championship side Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup saw the decibel level for boos hit a new high at the Emirates. Barring a Chelsea (or Liverpool)-like Champions League miracle the Gunners face the prospect of nine years without a trophy. When Manchester United experienced such a drought between 1968 and 1977 they went through four managers.

It is a maddening scenario not just for Gooners, but for Wenger. Perhaps the greatest manager the club has boasted, in the post-2005 era he has however experienced some monumental touchline meltdowns. From squaring up to Martin Jol, relishing some fisticuffs with Alan Pardew and massacring a water bottle - the latter now something of a regular occurrence.

And that has seen Wenger compared to Fawlty Towers' eponymous anti-hero Basil, such is their slinkily slender 6ft+ frames and penchant for tantrums.

So after David Brent and Brendan Rodgers last week we ask who said it? Wenger or Fawlty?
