“No contract, Arsene Wenger Out” read one banner from a plane flown over the Hawthorns on Saturday.

Then, just after Arsenal equalized in the first half, a banner from a plane which stated “In Arsene We Trust, #RespectAW” was then seen in the skies.

Talk about mixed messages...

With Arsenal playing West Bromwich Albion in the West Midlands of England, the protests continue around Wenger’s future as Gunners boss beyond this season.

The 67-year-old Frenchman has come under intense criticism in recent months as his side are once again out of the title race, out of the UEFA Champions League at the first knockout stage and there is growing uncertainty over Wenger’s future and that of star players Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

Take a look at the video below to see the plane carrying a clear message to Wenger before the game, plus a photo of the second banner supporting the Frenchman.

These bizarre actions show just how tough of a situation this is.

Even though he has a two-year extension on the table and many believe he will sign it, will these protests have an impact on his decision?
