Lets get one thing straight. I’m proud to be an Arsenal fan, I would follow this team into the Conference if I had to, but never in all my years have I been embarrassed for the club I love so dearly..
Losing is one thing, but losing without any effort, heart or passion is another thing entirely.
No doubt certain sections of the support will try to defend our players but quite frankly I don’t care for those opinions right now. There should be no excuses and no looking to blame others. The blame lies with the manager and the set of spineless wimps he’s assembled…
Where is the pride??? Where is the passion??? Thousands of fans turn up week in week out to support this shabby lot and they can’t even be bothered to run for 90 minutes for them.
Selfish, greedy and not good enough!!!!
We were the team that had the ‘easiest’ run in and we’ve managed one win in eight games and that was a scrappy 1-0 win against the mighty Wolves.. The rest of the games we just havent turned up..
For crying out loud we’ve gone from being top of the table to maybe losing out 3rd place to the Spuds, but the players don’t give a toss because they have no pride. They dont even play good football anymore, they are playing worse than Championship players, not putting the effort in, defending like schoolboys and getting beat
It annoys me when I see certain players busting a gut for the cause, only to be let down by others who seem content to treat the game like a training exercise and stroll around the pitch like they are just there for their wage packet..
Arsene Wenger originally assembled a young team that he wanted to grow together and have the values of the club at heart but it has backfired badly with many of them..
For this the blame has to fall on the manager. For years he has given constant 1st team appearances to the out of form players or the ones who are not good enough and then handed them new contracts at the end of it all. Also, he doesn’t recognise two of the four cups that are available every season and uses them as a training exercise..Wenger makes it clear its OK to lose these cups as they not a priority..
The players are spoiled and don’t have what it takes..They’ve grown up with a culture that rewards poor performances and accepts losing and they’ve carried that through into the 1st team..
The truth is that without Cesc we are pretty much a one man team and without better players around him we will never be good enough.
It’s now come to a point where things have to change. The fans deserve better for the 5 years of patience and the millions of pounds they’ve ploughed into the club, helping them pay off the debts, the fans deserve something in return. We don’t have a god given right to lift a trophy, but we do have a right to see our strongest eleven players on the pitch running their socks of for 90 minutes in every game in every competition..
The board and the manager have become complacent, happy to take the fans money and not give anything in return and they have gotten away with it for far too long. All the lies and all the spin has to stop after this season and the squad needs major reinforcements in all areas but do we trust them to do whats right by the fans?? Not if we continue to act like we don’t care they wont..
Arsenal fans should boycott the Fulham game and really put the shivers up the club’s top brass..Without the fans this club doesn’t exist so its high time the fans raised their voice..Wenger has already postponed the AGM..He knows whats coming so he’s tried taking the voice away but this is not dictatorship.
They need to know the likes of Diaby, Almunia, Denilson, Fabianski, Silvestre, Theo and co are not good enough and we need to get some new faces in in the summer..Some top class faces to play alongside RvP and Cesc and take their positions when they are injured and who know who to win..
This season has crumbled into a farce. I’m glad there’s only one game left because I have no doubt if there was 4 or 5 we would have dropped out of the top four..
I’ve stood by this team all season saying they would win the league but they have let me down badly. Some of them don’t deserve to play for this club again and if Wenger can’t see that he needs to be shown. There’s no better way than an empty stadium on the last day of the season..
