Why a vast majority of Arsenal “fans” should be disgusted with themselves



Whilst at the game on Sunday where Arsenal were forced to pass around the “bus parked in front of goal” I could not help but feel ashamed when a large section of the fans began to boo the team off. This, on a day that Thierry Henry returned to the club.

The booing is perhaps understandable and after speaking with a few of these “boosters” after the game the overall reaction was that it was regarding Arsenal’s lack of movement in the transfer window. But what really gets my hairs up are those telling Wenger who to buy and who to replace – like they know everything about football when in reality they know nothing except who is the fastest player on the latest console game.

Arseanl have not won anything for six years granted but look who they have had to face, Manchester United are always a side that will be fighting for hounours, Chelsea during the mid naughties also claimed some titles, but these are teams that have been back by serious financial clout.

When I read certain comments on Arsenal websites the most annoying thing I read is something like this.

Wenger out dis is nt d way we wnt it, no monez, no playerz, nuting, wenger hs 2 go nw or we win nowt

I mean what the f*ck gives anyone the right to talk about Arsene Wenger like that and secondly why can they not write English correctly. It is one thing to criticise, but to criticise in a list of vowels and syllables is just crazy. If you want to say your piece then try and find some intelligence before adding things like the above.

Wenger has been Arsenal’s most successful manager of all time and despite many fans moaning about signings, the fact of the matter is that Wenger has bought quality in Gervinho, the Fabregas and Nasri stuff looks to be coming to an end and he has said that he will invest in new players sooner rather than later.

So many care calling out for new centre backs, they might be needed but when you look at things on the whole, Arsenal’s defence was not that bad last season, there were some crazy lapses on concentration that’s all, and I don’t think you can buy concentration at Tesco’s the last time I checked.

Do you really think the likes of Cahill and Samba can handle the pressure of playing for Arsenal? They both play for mid table teams and can play week in week out without the pressure of having to win a match to make it into the Champions League spots, Jagielka is a different story, Wenger knows what he wants and he sees leadership and defensive qualities in the Everton man, the Merseyside club are also a top seven side and Wenger would obviously rather have a defender playing for a bigger club than some players who have done “ok” over the last 18 months.

Back to trophyless seasons, think how other teams feel, they play each season hoping not be relegated, to manage a top 10 finish, Arsenal play every season to win the league and reach the top four against some excellent competition in United, City and Chelsea. It’s easy when your sat on your backside using the controller to dribble around Vidic but in the real world my friends it is much more complicated.

If you want to slate Arsene Wenger each time he makes a comment then do so, but don’t you dare call yourself an Arsenal fan.

    I can only agree with you Damien, and with regards to the booing yesterday it really is disappointing to see. We have great talent coming through and indeed into the club in the form of Gervinho. And although I don’t expect us to win next season, I’m confident the squad has the quality to prove those who claim a top-four finish is unlikely, incorrect.
    As a forum junkie myself I’ve got to agree with your comments on the language used, every time I read a response from people who think removing vowels makes them ‘cool’ and still expect their opinions to be respected, I die a little on the inside.

    As an Arsenal fan to another one….
    Open your eyes, smell the roses. As a paying fan, everyone is entitled to an opinion, booing is an expression highlighting serious concern.
    If you honestly believe that this side will achieve anything of note this season, you are blind. We are lacking in defensive positions in both defense and midfield, and even more concerning, we have not selected a captain who can take ownership and drive the boys on. If you are happy with this, then I doubt any future articles you write will be worth the read.

    Spot on. The thing about these boo boys is they’ll slag Arsene off whether he spends money or not. The Mancs and chelski can splash the dosh on whomever they want but we unfortunately don’t have that luxury, so Arsene is right not to jump on that “let’s buy them and pay stupid transfer fees and salaries” bandwagon. You only have to look at the likes of Leeds to see where it could lead our club. And guess who these same boo boys will blame…IN ARSENE WE TRUST

    Well put, I am equally fed up with the ignorant remarks (and the equally ignorant way of writing), however if we fail to buy a CB we will win nothing this season. Personally I too am slowly becoming frustrated by Arsene’s lack of activity in this area, had we done the Jagielka deal at the beginning of the transfer window this would have helped to stabilise things within the squad and give the team time to settle. Instead, even if we do the deal now they have little time to work together and I fear the worst, a 5th place finish. Its the psychological effect our defensive errors are clearly having on the team that concern me and I am surprised that an intelligent man like Arsene seems to be missing this. The other signing I firmly feel would most benefit the team is Scot Parker, the consummate professional and a leader that could whip some of our kids into shape. We are so close and yet so far, I feel it is largely a psychological issue and unfortunately Arsene’s current stance seems to be exacerbating the problem.

    Completely agree with Stevo. As a paying fan ofcourse you are entitled to an opinion. This aricle has no substance to its arguments saying stupid things like “every fan thinks they know best when they don’t but granted we aint won a trophy in 6 years” lol. And I can honestly say I was bored stiff at the game yesterday; no passion (by players or fans) no answer to the “parked bus” that we will have to deal with against most teams, no clue, no creativity without nasri and fabregas. Seriously, the mexican wave was the highlight of the day! Whats happened to our support, it was eerily quiet yesterday but thats mainly due to the style of boring football we were playing. We are no longer great to watch, we are boring. What is exciting about passing the ball from left to right and back again. Bring back 4-4-2, bring back counter attacking football of the early wenger days 1998-2004, why are we so obsessed with controlling games with boring possession tactics when we could destroy teams on the break. RVP & Theo up front!

    wake up mate – Wenger has gone stale and stubborn. Where did the likes of Bold and Winterburn come from. They managed the pressure of playing for Arsenal (as you put it).

    If you pay your money you have the right to an opinion. I was not their yesterday but will be again this season home and away and if i want to tell Wenger what I think I will. When he was leading Arsenal to the glory moments with the inherited defence we all told him them.

    If you think accepting second rate year after year then your standards are too low and you should’nt dare call yourself an Arsenal fan.

    Yeah it is your right to boo but why don’t you wake up and smell the roses yourself, if you want your team to win then booing them in bloody PRE SEASON FRIENDLIES is totally counter productive. It does have an affect on the players and it does knock their confidence. Especially when the transfer window isn’t even over.

    Basically you can’t have your cake and eat it. Basically you can’t boo the team in FRIENDLIES while loads of second and third string players are playing and call yourself a fan and expect the team to do well, because all you boo boys are trashing their confidence, which is exactly what this blog is saying.

    August 1, 2011 at 2:26 PM

    Spot on! The booing was just ridiculous…its a friendly! and on top of it give credit where it was due. Henry put Agudelo through on a great ball and even if Bartley hadn’t put it in to his own net, RIGHT behind him was another RED BULL player who would have surely scored from that distance…
    Good point about Jagielka. Not sure what the big deal is with Samba. He’s not THAT good. Where did Blackburn finish again? Kocielny is improving and looks good too.
    We could definately use another defensive-mid as cover, but as stated, we’re not done in the transfer window anyway.
    With all the “fans” booing everytime Arsenal gives up a goal, its no wonder they have hang they heads when it happens! no fan support! only bitching and complaining…get it together Arsenal fans!

    Hi, This is one of the most honest and sincere publications Ive seen online lately. I think some so called Arsenal fans should have a rethink on whether they really support this team or not. We look forwards to a great season and whether we go trophyless or not, a true fan stands by his team. It is the opposition that boos not true fans. In Arsene we trust!!!

    Nice bit of misrepresentation to paint any one who disagrees with arsene as a completely illiterate idiot.

    Thankfully people like you have very little sway over the modern gooner and no matter how you disguise your agenda people will not fool for it.

    Stevo is spot on … wake up – wenger has weakened the squad to much this time – chamakh and vela as our two back up strikers with only van persie with any world class pedigree. The defense has learnt nothing and is actually weaker

    Wenger will not get rid of players who do nothing but fail for us time and again … why persist with these scroungers who do nothing but inflate our wage bill ?

    He has been saying for 2 years now he will only buy world class and experienced players in but where are they …. other teams can pull of good affordable deals so how come arsene with all his transfer clout cannot pull one of.

    For the first time in years we are actually weaker … players have come of age and shown they have not learnt anything and yet wenger persists with the losers and passes us ample chances to replace and strengthen

    August 1, 2011 at 2:29 PM

    You are that that wenger knows more about football than most of the fans but you are expecting fans to be happy after six years without trophy, after having horrible deference which even mangers of club like wigan and stoke city claim to be easy to beat and our manager still says our defense is not weak we are only weak in set pieces, After what has happened in the preseason games even a five year old kid can see that our defense is weak and we need to BUY some good players. wenger is a great manager but his stubbornness is killing this club and people like you are supporting him
    you say Man U and chelsea have rich owners well where is all the profit arsenal had in past years, where is the money that came from selling adebayor,toure and chichy ???

    August 1, 2011 at 2:29 PM

    Ok i don’t mind booing if players haven’t put in and a bad run of results and there are clear problem…IN COMPETITIVE MATCHES!!

    seriously this was a friendly. The reserves and reserves of reserves have conceded the goals whilst the 1st teamers both days showed flair, pace, and exciting football, whilst being solid at the back…

    That was a freaking disgrace and embarassment. Must be the 1st time in history a team has been booed by their own fans in a friendly match, especially one where a young promising CB made a mistake to concede a goal…

    @stevo…plenty of blogs will listen to your rubbish, try arsenal mania and the gunning hawk for a few! you probably booed your folkes when they didn’t gave you a chocolate bar as a kid didn’t you! spoilt whinning brats…

    I just cannot understand how one teams fans…esp one team so consistent and sustainable can have fans with so much hatred for the players and manager…its madness

    August 1, 2011 at 2:33 PM

    I agree with certain things your saying but what I think the issue is is that people (including me) are tired of arsenal nearly being there or almost winning a trophy being second in a 20 man race only makes you the first looser! Which isnt good enough. People who support Wolves and other relegation threatned teams go into the season hoping not to relegated so when they dont they are very satisfied,how high they finish in the league is just a bonus! So as an arsenal supporter you begin the season not hoping to come close to winning a trophy not coming close to wining and then being complacent with finishing in the top four. I am a great fan of wenger but he himself contradicts alot of what he says and is a hypocrite so u need to understand that he isnt a God send hes just another manager most successfull or not arsenal have always been a successfull club regardless so dick measuring between past and present managers is pointless because everyone who is appointed to manage has to be at a certain level anyway

    These weren’t season ticket holders, and I think that they’re used to shouting at the TV and not being heard.
    In Wenger we trust, lets wait for September before deciding that we’re not buying enough players.

    The manager has already promised to sign players ‘sooner rather than later’. Everyone knows that Wenger will sign a defender of repute to save Arsenal of the dodgy defending that has become commonplace at Arsenal, while reports continue to insist that Juan Mata is on the verge of transferring to the Emirates. What else do those fans want? This season, Arsenal has players who will be like new signings. Thomas Vermaelen,a rock-solid center back played only a paltry 5 games last season-he has looked sharper and healthier this summer. Aaron Ramsey has looked very impressive-in fact one of the liveliest so far. He played only 6 or less last season.Both have a huge role to play this coming season. In Gervinho, Wenger has unearthed a gem to terrorise opposing defenses, and, with the imminent arrival of Mata and Jagielka, there’s every reason for optimism rather than the pessimism the boo boys portrayed yesterday, a very sad note!!! Come on Gooners, Wenger, do not forget, is a real genius, who knows exactly what do. It is therefore a shame that some people who don’t know a decimal of the football Wenger knows, can come out to publicly insult him. No one has the right to do it. Just be patient and pass the judgement when the transfer window closes on August 31st.

    Football Manager has caused many a f*ckwit fan to think that they know what their talking about. It’s the toughest league in world and we always compete and not a single manager in the world could do what Wenger has done RE the stadium, the players, the finances, the youth set up. Sure, we’ve not won anything, but we will again soon. We’re still not that far away from the other top teams.
    Booing a pre-season friendly is pretty sad. Sure we’ve got the right to behave like morons, but it’s hardly supporting the team. Far too many fair-weather supporters out there for my liking. Support your team up to hilt, no matter how good or bad things are going. People who do that are the true supporters. People who don’t are (generally) the supporters who are looking for a team to follow and pick one of the popular/winning teams at that time. I recently moved down to the south coast and it’s amazing how many Man City fans you see milling about. Glory hunters the lot of them. I bet about 10/12 years ago many Arsenal fans started appearing in much the same way. I suspect (though they would deny it) many of these supporters are amongst the loudest of the dissenters. This old chant rings true for me ‘you only sing when you’re winning’. Sad to say there are far too many Arsenal fans that this applies to.
    All the Emirates Cup is is a fitness exercise. Pre-season means sweet fa. Last season Chelsea won every game before the season started, then they fell apart. Yes, it highlighted our need for a new centre-back, but everyone already knew that. It’s not a shocking revalation. So why b*tch and moan about it. Wenger is in the market and trying to get good value for money. Let him do what he needs to do, after everything he’s done for the club, he’s earned that right.

    I Pee’d off!, not because we have yet again challenged and come up short for the league title, or the Champions league, or the cups, I am down because the press feed an agenda and some arsenal fans fall for it. We are one of eight big clubs with Aston Villa, Everton, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man U, Newcastle, Tottenham being the others and Man City now joining the party.

    ARSENAL HAVE BEEN TOP FOUR EVERY YEAR! only Man U can Match that. in this time arsenal have built a NEW STADIUM. Arsenal beat Man U, Chelsea, Man City and BARCALONO last year. Arsenal and Everton are the only teams that have been meeting the FAIR PLAY rules, which means by definition the others have not been playing fair. This is not because the financial doping gives them an advantage, this is because this will undermine football and destroy further the relationship between clubs and there fans. Once upon a time the club needed the fans through the door, Man City don’t care. but this is not what’s got me rilled.

    Arsenal are on the right side of this argument yet some fan’s want us to run faster than Ben Johnson by taking more drugs! funny, but not what iI’m angry about

    ARSENALS FIRST 11 CAN DO IT. It’s the 12th man that is weak and crumbles at the first sign. arsenal fans are becoming a liability to the team. This explains the great away record.

    This is a hurdle race of highs and lows, All teams will fall. it’s who gets up first!

    there are two sets of fans.the ones who would wait as long as possible for wenger to lead a.f.c to the promise land his way and the other who wants a.f.c to acquire the necessary potential so as to get you think like wenger that a.f.c cant compete and should rather settle for top 4 or you think a.f.c is still a trophy winning team with only wenger’s pride and gambling policy being the stumbling addition,i know for a fact that a.f.c. Fans have been the most trustful and dedicated worldwide,but what happens to trust built on lies…….

    Nice try ..mate

    We were in the same situation this Jan, last summer and last Jan. Pls don’t tell me that the fans (the so called unfaithful lot)did not predict the eventual outcome of the season.Pls also donot tell me we didn’t know in which area we have failed during last 2-3 seasons. Knowing the situation and not doing anything about it is pure arrogance. Since we do not have ambitious people managing the club there are no questions asked. I agree we need financial stability at the club, but becoming greedy is definitely not the way to go.

    I think we should consider ourselves to be very fortunate (and satisfied to the so called faithfuls) if we finish among top 4.

    The booing should not be for the players on the field but for the people who manage the club.

    Granted Chelsea & Man Citeh have had money to spend but so have we, but we just haven’t. They sell our players for a massive profit yet argue over a few hundred thousand pond when it comes to buying. Then they put up the ticket prices making us one of the most expensive teams in Europe to go and watch so up yours if I’m unhappy at the way MY club is being run I’ll bloody well show it. It’s called Passion which has slowly been evaporating from our club since all these oppiniated rich little city boys started getting involved. Go back and watch Rugby

    Complete nonsense article. We all love Arsenal. But many of us have had enough of Wenger unless he changes and / or listens …. which he won’t. Your article is so full of holes it’s hard to know where to start.

    > Like if it might be hard for players from the mid table Premiership to adapt … how can those from the French League (hahaha)

    > Like if he had made smaller changes last summer – without spending a fortune … we would not be in this mess. Now we have to spend loads, integrate more players and somehow stabilise. The season starts in 11 days.

    > Like it is not only Arsenal fans who have given up on the grand Wenger intellectual plan … it is key players. They are either trying to leave (not only for money) or publicly asking for changes.

    > Like will he hire in a defensive coach … NO !! He prefers a YES Man like poor old Pat Rice, bless him.

    I live for the day when die hards like you even begin to comprehend how deep the problems are.

Tell me how many world class coach will leave player like squilacy wit all his errors which are even worst than cygan and silvestre together in his team or vela who has refuse step up or even refuse to buy despite all the glaring reasons 4 him to buy. And even keep a player who has refuse to sign a new deal. Shame on you pro 4 being too sentimental wit ur analysis

    What gives you the right to sit in judgement of these fans? Your main grip seems to be that fans are telling AW who to buy. But what is so new in this? Supporters the world over do this because they figure that the player will bring something to the team. Besides, the very fact that everyone in football, including pundits, commentators, fans and players seem to know what our problem is, means that it is an open secret. By the way, they all point to our defense. This has been the case for a number of seasons now. Your little piece seems to be born of arrogance and condescention towards the fans who could not possibly be right.

    6 years without a trophy does something to even the most dedicated fans, expecially when it is obvious that Arsenal is now a machine gun with rubber bullets even if the fans hate to admit it. It is clear that we are not contenders for anything just like any other middle table team, we completely lack technical competence as players just kick the ball around without a purpose, not to mention that the only player that made the difference in the team is heading to Bacelona. I can feel the bitterness and the fustration in the fans who chant “in arsene we trust” as the team continue to prove the critics right. I believe it is better to live in the present reality than in the days of the invicible.

    Im an Arsenal fan who, because I live overseas, have to contend myself with watching football on the screen. Having said that, I feel the frustratet ions of the fans as well. From where am sitted, I noticee Arsenal fans pay the highest to watch these games, yet they have not seen any silverware snce god knows when. True, AW has been the most succesful manager of the club, but we cant use history to exonorate what he is doing. We are told the club has a big war chest, but what I see is movement inwards being dependent on a fabregas sale, yet we really need defenders. If you say the defence didnt do that badly, did you see the statistics on goals conceded?….the set pieces and all? And remember these booing fans are the ones that take the mickey from the fans of other succesful clubs. I hate the fact that other teams seem to know oour formula….park the bus or train! I dont hear other clubs having known formulae as well. Why should we be that predictable? But as for the guys who prefer not to write english the way you want it……I dnt knw wat t sy bz it aint ftbll!!!
