It was not so long ago Arsene Wenger couldn't buy a friend, let alone a record signing.
Ever since he clinched the deal to sign Mesut Ozil, a day after the club defeated Tottenham Hotspur - the club's fortunes and Wenger's popularity have been transformed.
Such is the change in his fortunes, amid a six game winning streak in all competitions that even Spurs fans are taking time out to give him praise.
Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar, and fan of the club, wrote on his Twitter page that Arsene Wenger is undoubtedly the best manager
Arsene Wenger best manager in PL. FACT— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) September 18, 2013
Sugar, to give his statement some context is a regular moaner when it comes to present Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas.
Looking at his statement, it brings the question if you disagree, then who is the best manager in the Premier League?
Should it be judged on past achievement? Present capability and upside? Or recent successes?
We are sure two-time Champions League winner Jose Mourinho would dispute his claims, but given his side's embarrassing home loss to Basel, now may not be the best time to put forward such an argument.
