The prospect of the Frenchman hanging around at Arsenal presents a number of challenges for everyone – not least the media and the fans struggling to keep any perspective
Rumours that Arsène Wenger may reveal a two-year contract extension are likely to cause a spike in cotton futures, as London bedding retailers expect a run on sheets. For many without a stake in either the linen industry or Arsenal football club, the prospect of Wenger sticking around presents different challenges. What may we expect in the weeks, months – and indeed years – ahead?

Established stars speak about top-flight football the way we talk about office jobs but players with one appearance remember just how surreal and exciting it is
When Premier League legends describe what it’s like to play at the highest level they usually reduce it to cliché, like you or I would if we were detailing our work environment on any given Monday. Yet what a crazy, high-octane trip it must be to find yourself pitched into a frenetic battle with global superstars on a perfect green pitch, surrounded by thousands of fans willing you to succeed or fail, as a multitude of cameras judge your every brain-scrambled touch of the ball.
For elite players this surreal, adrenaline-charged experience becomes the norm throughout lengthy careers at the top of the game. Perhaps, then, the closest we can come to understanding the reality behind our childhood fantasies is to ask someone who only peered behind the curtain once, making just a single top-flight appearance. To them it was anything but the norm; it was a glimpse into another world that fascinates us all.

Two leaders based in Islington, both with rapidly dwindling support from their teams and supporters. Neither able to set out a clear vision as to how to reach the commanding position their organisations once enjoyed. Both deaf to pleas to resign with some semblance of dignity. I can’t be the only Arsenal-supporting member of the Labour party who has noticed the similarities?

• Why on earth was Andy Brassell (Sport, 21 March) allowed so much space to speculate about a successor to Arsène Wenger when the world knows it will be George Osborne, who appears to have nothing to do at 3pm on a Saturday.
