F00king hell. It’s been a rollercoaster of a few seasons and not in the good way. We’ve had our highs and lows, like we’ve done in the past and the thought that gnaws at me is that the worse is yet to come. But, in the past we’ve all come through our lows united. Not necessarily all in agreement but as fans. And fans who respect other fans.
But nowdays we can’t even seem to stand united in our hate for Spurs or Ashley Cole. We’re spending all our time fighting within ourselves and not only is it sad, it’s pathetic.
If I have to here “Wenger Out” or “Wenger Knows” again, I will stab something. Both are irrational. It reminds me of my kindergarten days. Boys and Girls would not get anywhere near each other and whatever the opposition said was immediately dismissed as the talking of a mad man/woman. That’s very similar to what’s happening with our fan base right now.
No more doubting other fans. If you can’t see the arguments of each other then you’re all fucking thick. I know it’s just a minority but there are fans who are threatening to support other clubs if we don’t meet their demands. A little message to those oh so delusioned few: Fuck off. Go on, support whoever you want, none of us give two shits. If you threaten to support another club, you are the lowest of the low and not worthy of any respect.
It’s sad the state the fanbase is in. We’ve been split in two, no in between options and the people who argue for the opposition are a bunch of cunts.
The “have faith” chants are getting a bit sickening and mechanical. We’ve had faith for 4 years and what’s happened? Wenger has not learned from his mistakes. After letting a midfield general in Vieira go he then let Flamini go too easily and again, did not replace him properly. Last season, there were times when we were dependent on the inspiration of Cesc and Adebayor. The inspiration was not always present, but the solidity of Mathieu Flamini always was.
It’s now obvious we need 2-3 new players. But this isn’t Football Manager. You can’t just do it like that. You can’t go ahead and buy three new players and slot them into a team and you can’t sell three first teamers to make room for those players. They have to be eased in.
You can’t let your manager go as that will also lead to a transition period. We’ve been backed to a wall and it’s damage limitation. I’m not blaming Wenger here, he did try to bring in a new defensive midfielders but now we are in a transition again and people just need to accept it. Fans need to be rational and focus on what the club needs to do to improve.
But the “Wenger out” calls are getting just as annoying, pathetic and whingey. The board will not sack Wenger, no matter how hard you petition. As fans you have a right to be dissatisfied with this but would it not just be so much easier to accept it, get together and try and work it out?
No one can see any fucking reason and believe that their single minded, no room for change mindset would lead the club to victory. It won’t.
I’m as pissed as any of you but the whole lot of you have gone fucking mad. The fact that are now two teams of Arsenal fans with no in between option is pathetic and childish. Either way will fuck up the club we love so can we please have rational ideas to try and get out of the position we are in.
People spouting crap about how you want your decisions respected but are not giving out any yourself. People are going around claiming that some people are not true fans. For fuck sake, some people have had to start a whole new blog (such as Le Grove) just to try and get a point across. How pathetic is that?
Can’t we all just go back to laughing at the scum down the lane?
How hard is it to look at thing rationally and try and improve our position working with what we’ve got.
I’m sorry to dissapoint some people but Wenger does not know all but neither will he be sacked and with good reason. So get that into your heads.
Obviously, after a performance like tonight, you just can’t expect rationality from some people and that’s fair enough.
I probably sound a bit cheesy but it’s annoying and sad as hell to see Arsenal fans arguing over two such futile things. If I’ve made a shred of difference to the way some people think, I’m happy for now.
