Lets Come Together. By Galen Sona
I have always considered Arsenal FC to be the FC Hollywood of the premier league. There is always something negative for the media to talk about. Can you imagine what they would have said if we were Spurs right now? Can you imagine what they would have said if we finished 6th like United after spending half a billion? Klopp, for all his heavy metal football has won 0 trophies. Even when we are winning 5 nil, the media still find something negative to say. The fan base is completely divided between Wenger in and Wenger out. The discontent among our fans is growing. But we must come together if we have any plan of doing a job against Manchester United.
I don’t like the owner or the board, but that should never stop us from supporting our team. We are fans of a great football club and our support should be 100%. What’s the point of having 60,000 people in the stadium if they can’t create an intimidating atmosphere? To be honest, I remember a Liverpool fan telling me there is more atmosphere in his bedroom than at the Emirates. We just can’t choose when to support the team and when not to support the team. The North London derby was a great example of the stadium coming together and bonding with the team, and we saw what happened on the pitch. But why can’t we do that at every home game?
Three points against Huddersfield is the same as 3 points vs the big clubs. So why should we chose what game to sing and what game not to sing? There are no excuses anymore. The players are giving us something to shout about. They are all fighting for the shirt, even Ozil and Sanchez with all the contract stories are giving 110%. So why are we not doing the same at the Emirates?
I know the excuses, loads of tourist in the stadium, expensive tickets and rich people don’t sing, the real fans don’t come to the stadium. It is time for the fans to give something to these players. There is no bigger game at the Emirates than against Manchester United. Lets go out there and give these players the gas they need to press at the speed of light. Let me tell you something folks, it is finally coming together, the team is finally gelling, the players know their role, the back 3 is solid, the front 3 is dangerous, Ramsey is bossing it – and we don’t have as many injuries as we had in the past seasons .
As fans we have a job to do. I hope we do our jobs by going out there and supporting our players. We already have so many enemies as a football club, we can’t join the media and shoot ourselves down. Just watch Match of Day to know how many friends we have, just look at BT sport or Sky, or the numerous papers saying negative things all the time, we have no friends folks. In the words of Lennon and Mccartney, Lets come together.
If we beat Manchester United, we go 1 point behind them. That’s not too bad for a club in crisis. Have an awsome weekend fellow Gunners.
