As Arsenal’s season has dwindled away to nothing except the Europa League, the Emirates has seen the smallest crowds for home games for many many years so it is obvious that the fans are voting with their feet, but who are they actually aiming their protests at.
In the last home game of last season, the fans that did turn up spent more time shouting insults at Stan Kroenke than Arsene Wenger as the owner is the man that has overseen the demise in the club lately, and also the one that decided to re-appoint Arsene Wenger as manager last season.
The ex-Arsenal striker believes that the empty seats are sending a message to the Arsenal Board and Wrighty hopes that it hurts them. “It should do and you hope that they will see that the fans have had enough.” he said.
“Arsenal fans get a lot of stick on social media and people laugh at them. They threaten to do stuff and it doesn’t quite happen but this is the first time I’ve seen a positive step from the fans.
“I’m quite pleased they’ve done it. I was there the other day and it’s not good to see but with the prices that they pay, they’ve had to listen to excuses, they’ve watched players leave, they’ve watched really incompetent performances and they’ve still gone in their droves.
“They should show that they are not happy. I’m pleased that they’ve done it and hopefully the board will be looking.”
“The Arsenal fans had success in the past and they want success back,”
“They’ve been very patient with what’s happened. They’ve seen great players leave, players that should be making a difference for the club and taking them to the level they want to be. A level they’ve been at and enjoyed being there.
“Now, they are looking at the club falling away and nothing being done.”
On this and many other Arsenal websites most of the blame seems to be aimed at Wenger, but surely the man that must ultimately carry the can is the one that is in total control of the club.
The buck stops at the top!
