Wenger will weigh fans' feelings over his future

On Saturday, fans finished their march in front of the entrance that club directors and VIP guests use at the Emirates Stadium, chanting "We want Wenger out".

The Gunners suffered another Champions League humiliation in midweek as Bayern Munich completed a 10-2 aggregate victory over them at the Emirates Stadium, meaning the FA Cup remains the last piece of silverware that Arsenal can realistically win this season.

Add to that Anthony Taylor awarding Burnley a penalty in their Premier League game at Swansea last weekend despite the ball clearly hitting the arm of a visiting player and the call for technology has increased in volume.

Vieira told Omnisport of Wenger: "He is going through a really hard period but at the same time I know Arsene and he is not the kind of person who will throw the towel in and walk out of this situation".

"If they don't go further, that is what will happen because we live in a society that is legalist and what people pay is more and more".

Wenger is out of contract in the summer and has yet to make a decision on whether he will continue as boss, despite there being a new two-year contract on the table.

Theo Walcott scored in first-half stoppage time to break through before second-half strikes from Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Aaron Ramsey and a Luke Waterfall own goal saw the Premier League side reach the semifinals at Wembley.

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

Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck were then forced to withdraw from Arsenal's heavy Champions League loss against Bayern Munich, while Ozil was brought on to the substitutes bench as a replacement.

Maintaining confidence after letting in five against a superior side is now the task facing the Lincoln manager Danny Cowley, although he at least was able to admit that his side had been comprehensively outplayed after half-time - as is natural given they were playing a team four divisions above them.

Lincoln are the first non-league side to reach the quarter-finals since QPR in 1914 and are looking to become the first non-league side to reach the semi-finals since Swindon in 1912.

"I've spoken to or have heard about others [former Arsenal colleagues] who would also love to come back". In the end the undoubted talent of world class opposition proved too much for the Imps, but there was no disgrace in defeat.

That observation was significant in light of Wenger's recent assertion that he meant to stay as a manager next season, whether it is at Arsenal or not.
