It's the Europa League or bust for Arsenal.A sobering 3-0 loss to Manchester City in the League Cup final Sunday ended Arsenal's chances of lifting domestic silverware.So, Arsenal's season now hangs on the oft-maligned Europa League, in which Wenger has been fielding reserve teams.By then, some Arsenal players were strolling around in midfield, seemingly having given up and overwhelmed by City's carousel of ball-players.WENGER'S POSITIONThe long-serving Wenger was awarded another two-year contract extension after Arsenal won the FA Cup last May, though the team's failure to qualify for this season's Champions League was viewed as a "catalyst for change," according to chief executive Ivan Gazidis.No one knows if Wenger plans to quit if Arsenal finish the season without a trophy and a Champions League spot.Since then, Arsenal have lost the north London derby to Tottenham 1-0, been embarrassingly beaten 2-1 by Ostersund, and then brushed aside by City in the League Cup final. It would be no surprise, too, if City beat Arsenal at Emirates Stadium in the Premier League Thursday.Former striker Ian Wright also picked up on Arsenal's players walking around and said that they were "insipid".
