As the full-time whistle rang out across The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon, the media awaited the Arsene Wenger press conference with extreme anticipation.
It was11 days before they'd been dumped out of the Champions League 10-2 on aggregate by Bayern Munich. Now, they'd just lost 3-1 against West Brom and fallen further behind in the race for Europe's top club competition.
A banner had flown above the ground calling Wenger's time as up. Another, flown just after, in support of the Frenchman (make your mind up Gunners!)
And then he told the media: "I know what I will do. You will know soon."

It didn't look good. Would the man, who has been at the helm of the Gunners for 20 years, finally call it a day?
It would seem not.
The Daily Express has exclusively revealed that Arsene Wenger could sign a one year extension on his deal, keeping him at the club until 2018.
The Express reports that Wenger was offered a two-year deal earlier in the season, but has reached a compromise for one final shot at the title, the Champions League and Spurs!
The current Juventus boss, Max Allegri, was also reported to take over if Wenger decided to stand down in the summer.
It would not appear to be a popular decision among the Arsenal faithful. Several of them created banners for Saturday's defeat to West Brom.
The Gunners have now lost four of their last five in the Premier League and face top-four side Manchester City at the Emirates after the international break.
No matter what Arsene Wenger chooses, he'll have created many memories for the Emirates bunch.
Who can forget the title winning side of 2003-2004? 26 wins, 12 draws, ZERO defeats.
The six FA Cup victories and a Champions League final (which they may have won if it wasn't for Jens Lehmann's early red card).
