As most of you know I don’t mince my words and have been very vocal about my disgust at how the club has been run over the past 3 years.
I never changed my mind, week in week out I have always stuck to my guns, win, lose or draw I always kept with what I thought, some arsenal fans recently really annoy me. We lose to stoke and they begin to moan, we beat man utd and they think were the best team in the world again, our youth team beat wigan and we have a bright future AGAIN, but then we lose to villa and the same people change their mind again, at least I and a few others on the forum have been consistant, we see the whole picture, the whole season, and not just the game at hand.
Some of you seem to think you are better fans then me, some of even said that I’m
Not a real Arsenal fan?
What I find realy ironic are the so called Arsenal fans, or perhaps it shows just how far we have fallen these last few years, but when a fellow gooner tells me in all seriousness that if i want to follow a successful team then i should start supporting Chelsea.
Lets get 1 thing very clear. I’m a die-hard Arsenal fan and I take no pleasurer in watching us lose.
Some of you need to understand that 25% of Arsenal fans have been saying this for some time. I am much as a Arsenal supporter as anybody. I want the team to be successful, But we see the light and are not acting like zombies and sheep like most of you who all just say “In Wenger We Trust” Even when its clear he is making loads of mistakes.
we have the right to criticise just as much as certain fans have the right to keep faith, and whatever camp your in dont make you any less of a fan.
Just because I have a different opinion to how I feel the club should be run does not give any of you the right to question my loyalty to the club I love.
Just because you don’t have the balls or the courage to come out and say what your head is telling you what you know is true means you are not a better fan then me. If anything you are a weak fan and just go along with anything they do. You might as well not support the team if you dont feel angry when they lose or want to blame the manager or players.
So lets be clear. We are all fighting for the same goal. We all want Arsenal to do well.
You hope it will be in the future and you trust Wengers judgement.
I know its all just a dream and until we start to spend we have not got a chance in hell.
That’s the different in our fans, some see the light, others are living in a dream, But we are no better then the other. I respect some of you for sticking to your guns and standing by Wenger, But your loyalty to him has made you blind to the real world. Your loyalty should be like me with Arsenal FC.
i can accept that some fans have more patientce than me or still believe in the Arsene, fair play to them, what i find totaly out of order though, is these fans in the in camp that think they can tell us to fck off and support the mancs, spuds or the chavs
These fans who have told me that i am a glory hunter, must know that ive supported arsenal since the early eighties, i was born in 75,I supported them when we lost to York in the FA cup and will do till the day i die.I love them like my own familiy, if not more.
When i criticize the arsenal, people think i only begun to support them once arsene took over, but thats just crap, i been around even through the horrible Don Howe days.
the fans who dont say a bad thing about arsenal today need to wake up, open their eyes, if they have, then in my eyes they have no passion, and their own vision and goals for arsenal football club need to be questioned? Arsenal are a team that should be challanging on all fronts, we should at most be runners up in the premiership, at most be challanging for the champions league, but we always fall short, and well the f.a. cup which has been lucky for wenger is not so lucky no more.
there is only one person to blame for results, yes players have a part to play, but its the guy who plays them, who trains them, who gives them game plans, and makes important tactical changes that is to blame, when will arsenal fans begin to realise this and begin to shift the blame away from ref’s and to the man who deserves the criticizim.
But we all want the same thing in the end.
