A planned protest against Arsene Wenger has been dashed by adverse weather conditions.

A group of disillusioned Arsenal fans had raised over £3,000 to fly a plane with the banner “No new contract Wenger out” during the game with West Brom on Saturday afternoon.

But in a message posted on a club forum it has been confirmed that weather in the surrounding area around The Hawthorns has caused the move to be postponed at the last minute.

“Due to the adverse weather conditions expected in the Birmingham area tonight and tomorrow the plane with the banner has had to be postponed,” a short statement read.

“We will look at another date, time and venue in due course.”

Manager Wenger has come under increasing pressure in recent weeks with the Gunners’ form tailing off leaving their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League looking bleak.

Fans have protested against the Frenchman at a number of recent home games with the man himself continually questioned on whether or not he will leave the club this summer.

When asked once more about his future this week Wenger appeared exasperated with the continued scrutiny on his plans.

“I have nothing to say about that,” he said in his weekly press conference.

“Every press conference is about that, I have talked enough about that.”
