Arsene Wenger enters his 20th year at Arsenal this month following his appointment back in October 1st, 1996, when he succeeded Bruce Rioch.
The Frenchman is the club's longest serving manager in the Gunners history, and is second only to Sir Alex Ferguson in terms of longevity in the Premier League era. This is a remarkable feat considering the fickle nature and short-term demands of both Premier League chairmen and fans.
We chart the highs and lows of Arsene's Wenger reign including the glorious feats achieved by "The Invicibles" to the frustration of his barren trophyless years.
A superb start to his Gunners career was followed by an alarming dip which coincided with the move to The Emirates. Things have picked up in recent seasons, but does this mean Wenger is on his way back or is the recovery simply a "dead cat bounce"?Arsene Wenger - the highs and lows (Soccerjury)
The Frenchman is often credited for revolutionising the beautiful game in England by step-changing both players training methods and diet. He popularised the much acclaimed "continental" passing game in England, which has now replaced the outdated "kick and rush" philosophy as the tactic of choice.
He is also renowned for nurturing young startlets including Theo Walcott, Cesc Fabregas, and Ashley Cole. And then there is of course Henry and Patrick Vieira who he moulded into true legends of the game. This fan-video highlights Wenger's Top 10 greatest transfers, which highlights his prowess at finding talent in the transfer market.

All Premier League fans are aware that Wenger's time at the Arsenal is a tale of two halves.
His first decade included a sterling haul of three Premier League titles and four FA cups, but he has yielded just two FA Cup wins since. This is a relatively poor return for this iconic manager.
However, with the financial constraints from the Highbury to Emirates move now gone, will Wenger scale the heights he once reached during his glory years?
Only time will tell!
