The irony is none of this bile is coming from his fellow managers in the game. It's coming from ex-players, the media and a growing section of Arsenal fans.
Admittedly, not all ex-players, journalists or fans are part of the Wenger-out brigade. I'm not gonna start generalising.
But I find it slightly ironic that someone like Sam Allardyce can come out in support of the Frenchman but former players cannot.
No-one is infallible and maybe it is the fact that he has always been a media darling for so long, that makes recent events all the more interesting.
Not a day goes by when there isn't another article referencing his faults, coaching errors and failings in the tranfer market.
And I agree, the man has made mistakes. But which one of us hasn't?
But should these mistakes allow people to belittle one of the best managers, the Premier League has ever seen?
15 years ago, he came to North London and when he won the double he was the first non-British manager to do so. Since then he has won seven trophies and taken his club to numerous finals. He averages one trophy, every two seasons. Not too bad in a country where we regularly laud managers just foor keeping their club in the top flight.
Let's not forgot his two trophies each at Monaco and Grampas Eight, in France and Japan, respectively.
Without him players like; Robert Pires, Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Freddie Ljundberg, may never have graced these shores. Not to mention how he extended the careers of Tony Adams, Steve Bould and David Seaman. As well as the numerous clubs that have benefitted from players who came through the Arsenal youth system.
With his passion and idealistic view of football, we started to see the game played in a majestic way, something not common in England.
His attention to detail helped the club build the magnificent, Emirates Stadium, as well as turn Colney into one of the best training facilities in the world.
Yet some feel it is acceptable to ridicule him and make a mockery of all he has and WILL achieve in the future.
I believe that respect is something that is earned.
And Mr Wenger has earned his, by working a hell of a lot harder than most.
