They might all talk like Frank Butcher and eat pie and mash but for me them east London gypsies are the best fans in the land.
They are proper football fans, VERY vocal and passionate and live and die football. What I like about the bubble blowers is that most of the fans are local people, Working class people who have history and know it.
The problem with today’s football fan is that they support the glory teams, In the 90s it was Man Utd,then it was CSKA Fulham…But them irons have stuck by the club through years of shite,getting relegated and selling there best players & winning sod all since 1980.
Got nothing but respect for West Ham fans, I remember when i was a kid West Ham reached the semi finals of the FA Cup and played N’Forest, An amazing atmosphere. West Ham lost the game 4-0 but didn’t stop singing throw the 90mins and supported there team like they won the champions league. “billy bonds claret and blue army”
On the other hand there is the modern day gooner! who wants to cut themselves coz we have gone a few years without winning anything. Turns up to the game late and leaves early, Hardly makes a sound at the game apart from when they boooo our player.
I think the problem with the modern Arsenal fans is that most of them are like spoiled kids and have had it too good.
In life you need to taste the bad times to enjoy the good….
Recently we had a West Ham fan join the forum and he knew he stuff about the game. He made some good points about Wenger and his lack of English signings..Please see this thread LINK
Up the Arsenal…And join the forum for more banter www.goonerforum.com
