Dissatisfied Arsenal fans in the ‘#WengerOut’ camp will take their protest to the skies, using crowdfunded money to hire a plane and fly banners over the Hawthorns  when Arsenal meet West Brom in the Premier League this weekend. 

​ report that the televised audience could see banners with the fan  messages  of “No new contract” and “Wenger out” in the skies, as a section of Gunners fans go route one against their French manager.

The anti-Wenger fans have been making their feelings known to the manager and directors at the club, staging protests at Gunners’ home games against Bayern Munich and Lincoln of late.

Th description on the ​JustGiving page, written by fan Chris Butler, read: “We are raising funds to help with demonstrations, advertisements and banners to encourage the owners of Arsenal, to remove Arsene Wenger from the position of manager.
