After a day to digest what happened to Arsenal, Craig Burley and the FC panel's view on Arsene Wenger isn't any prettier.
"I've always said that I feel good at Arsenal: the club, the fans, the city - it's all here, ' the German told Bild. He's the Mugabe of Arsenal".
Both could be accused of gross economic mismanagement, however, with £30million midfielder Granit Xhaka proving a flop and £17m striker Lucas Perez hardly ever getting a game.
Arsenal's French manager reaches the end of his current deal in the summer and has yet to commit to staying.
They also crashed out of the Champions League in humiliating fashion, losing 10-2 on aggregate to Bayern Munich.
"They've had an absolutely fantastic FA Cup run".
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on criticism from supporters: "I have worked very hard for 20 years to make our fans happy and when you lose the games, I understand they are not happy". This year they were out of the title race by February, exited the Champions League in the round of 16 for the seventh straight season, and face a tougher scrap than ever just to get into the top four of the league. Before the game, he said that he wasn't sure how long he had left.
"Obviously we are now in the FA Cup semi-final which is very important, and obviously the season might look completely different in a few weeks". We can not underestimate any side in any league in this country, and that's what I've learned. "That was one hell of a long 45 minutes for us".
The 67-year-old Frenchman has won the FA Cup six times, a record he shares with George Ramsay, who won his sixth with Aston Villa in 1920.
That settled Arsenal's nerves and Giroud doubled the lead when he slotted home from Hector Bellerin's cross in the 53rd minute before Waterfall glanced Kieran Gibbs' cross into his own net five minutes later.
Wenger selected a full-strength team for the quarter-final and Lincoln resisted until first-half stoppage time, when Theo Walcott broke the deadlock. If Wenger was to leave, the club would accelerate their search so the new manager would be joined by the sporting director.
