We have just won at Liverpool
, but the points I want to make would be valid whatever that result.
When you read some of the complete rubbish spouted by so called Arsenal
fans about Arsene Wenger
and how he should be sacked and replaced (by whom I cannot imagine)........Newsnow Arsenal is a great source of info, but it also lets you into the dark world of the professional Arsenal moaners.
Of course every single Arsenal supporter wants the very best players at our club to help form the greatest team we can muster, but to call for the manager's head after EVERY disappointment is ludicrous: be it a quieter than expected transfer window or an unexpected loss of points.
It may be a clique but if the moaners are remotely interested in supporting their club (and do bear in mind, it is AFC we support, not Tony Adams FC, or Thierry Henry
FC) we need to SUPPORT the one man who is the decision maker at our club.
This is the man who is single handedly responsible for giving Gooners the most poisonous of gifts: hope, expectation and genuine ambition.
The biggest fault of the moaners is their short term memory......maybe it is because they are short term fans and do not remember the 1980s and don't have anything to compare to, but do remember what life at AFC was like pre-Wenger.....he gave us amazing football and a TEAM of flair ......we have only had the briefest of glimpses of this under Gorgeous George previously.
Apparently starting the league season with 3 clean sheets is something we have not done for 88 years? Maybe George's methods are being passed on via Mr Bould? Not a bad move......wonder who arranged that?
He may be stubborn, he may have the complete courage of his convictions and he may have put way too much trust in players who subsequently turned out to be c#nts, but there is no better manager at finding talent and playing football in a breath taking fashion......it is sad that we may not have the finances or a manager who is comfortable paying huge sums for household names, but if you truly are a Arsenal supporter, then you should demonstrate that support, stop the poison and TRUST Arsene to do what he does best.....he hates losing as much as any of us, so what do you ever hope to gain by sharing your hatred of anyone associated with your team who disappoint by not doing what you feel is needed?
If you really hate with the vitriol you spout on websites/blogs, maybe you should go follow someone you feel worthy of your faith......don't try to poison the unconditional love we have for Arsenal FC.
One last thought: why do we sing, "stand up if u hate tottenham"??? I don't give a monkey's about the scum, we might as well sing, "stand up if you hate Barnet" it is as relevant to AFC.
