When somebody buys a ticket and spends £50, £60 or £70, it is not because he wants to be bored; it is because he wants to enjoy a football game. I feel we all have a responsibility to keep that going.
Wenger thinks that the EPL should be entertained with attractive displays (September 2005).
I have never allowed anyone to question my commitment to this club, in the good and in the bad times, that has not changed in my mind. I am contracted until 2011 and until 2011 I do not envisage to go anywhere else.

With Manchester United I am a bit cautious because sometimes I feel they get too much protection and sometimes they don’t get enough. Ronaldo is a specific example of that. Sometimes his arrogance is provocative – and his class as well.
