It seems to me that EVERY YEAR, when Arsenal are not winning every single game, the readers on JustArsenal start abusing Arsene Wenger and start calling for his head, and EVERY YEAR Wenger manages to turn it around and get the team challenging in the Top Four, and even winning the last two FA Cups, but this is quickly forgotten when we have another couple of dodgy results.
We all know that Wenger has taken a risk by not buying a striker, especially in the light of the injury to Danny Welbeck (who may not have helped much anyway) but at least Wenger still has faith in his team, and as supporters we too should have faith in our players to compete for trophies – which they will as the season progresses. How do I know this? Because it happens EVERY YEAR!
Recently there have been many personal insults and abuse towards OTHER ARSENAL FANS, which I find totally unacceptable. We all support Arsenal and should respect each others opinions even if we disagree with them.
Let me tell you my philosophy when I started this website many years ago. I believe that ALL Arsenal fans should be allowed to express their views and I provide this platform to allow their opinions to be discussed by Gooners all over the world. And I mean DISCUSS, not a platfom to abuse anyone who doesn’t agree with your personal opinion. I rarely delete comments and then only because I feel they are extra abusive and totally out of context to the discussion. Hell, enough of you say some very nasty things about ME just for publishing a view they disagree with!
Secondly the readers need to understand that, although Bob and I publish the articles, I would hazard a guess that nearly half of the articles published are written and sent in to me, by YOU, the readers themselves, and I always provide the names or initials of the writer. I publish EVERY story sent to me if they have a point to make (whether I agree or not) unless they are grammatically unbearable (I am a stickler for spelling and grammar I’m afraid). So not ALL the articles are written by me or anything to do with my opinion.
I am NOT an AKB or an AOB, I just want whatever is best for Arsenal IN MY OPINION, and my opinion now (which may change in the future) is that it is not good for the club to consider sacking Wenger because of a couple of mediocre games. I personally believe that this is just a blip and the team will improve asalways. That doesn’t mean that I won’t listen to other peoples objections and call them idiots!
I was a regular at Highbury from the days of Frankie McLintock, Charlie George, Johnny Radford et al, so I have seen many managers come and go, but that doesn’t affect my loyalty to Arsenal. I have changed girlfriends and lovers many many times over the years, but for me it is impossible to switch allegiance to another club, no matter how badly Arsenal are performing, so we just have to deal with what we have in front of us.
According to various opinion polls at different times, there are slightly more AKB’s than AOB’s in the world, so I am finding it hard to understand why a majority of my commenters (You lot!) are totally Anti-Wenger, and that is why I sometimes go out of my way to represent the silent majority at times. I DO NOT want my site to be off-limits to half of the Arsenal fanbase just because they get abused by the AOBs.
Right now Arsenal are not at the top of the League, whoever you blame, but the fact is that we have been in bad places before, but Wenger has ALWAYS managed to turn it around and get us back into the Top Four. We should allow him to work his magic again until the end of the season and then re-assess the situation.
Until then please just support the team and encourage them to finish as high in the table as possible.
Thankyou for listening….
Mr. ADMIN (Not AKB, Not AOB)
