Arsenal fans should stop typing and start protesting

(by Neil) Don’t take this the wrong way but if you want Wenger out at the end of this season will you:

A. Continually berate him and the board of directors on social media in order to vent your frustrations? Or

B. Get off your backside and be part of a physical public demonstration?

The reason I ask is simple. Football fans are notorious for debating, whether that be an unfair refereeing decision, a sending off, a transfer target….its what makes being fan so addictive and social.

However, as a good friend of mine once said “Talk is cheap, money buys whisky..” ….Actions speak greater than words and so I believe our board find it uncomfortable but not unbearable or embarrassing to read the Wenger Out brigade venting their anger on social media. Will it affect them to the degree where they decide to remove him from his position? A resounding ‘no’.

As a consequence, and I have already raised this point, a physical show of unacceptable is required in order to get Wenger out. I will take an organised non aggressive or offensive protest outside the stadium of several thousand fans and covered by the media. This would most certainly make the national news.

By using this forum, Facebook and Twitter etc it’s possible to achieve this and get sufficient numbers to attend it but, and I refer back to my initial point, are any fans really that motivated to give up an afternoon of their life or is it simply too much of a commitment?

If you refer back to Jun 2016 when Britain went to the polls to vote for or against being in the EU there was a significant turn out on both sides as people cared about the future. I’m not suggesting leaving the EUROPEAN is comparable to changing our manager BUT as an Arsenal fan of 45 years it’s bloody important to me and, if you’re also a fan and disgruntled with the current situation I suggest it should be as important to you.

To close, I’m reading loads about wages of Sanchez and Ozil, will they go, who will come in…etc…thats all utter nonsense in the BiG scheme of things. Whether they stay or go makes no difference if Wenger stays. They will simply be wasting another twelve months of their lives, albeit earning substantial money.

And so, let’s not skirt around the edges, distracting ourselves on side issues. Lets do what Wenger and the board are incapable of doing and be proactive in making Wengers decision to leave ours and not theirs…

    Apparently its just been released that he was negotiations to buy Mbappe last year for not very much, but he pulled out. I can’t see the point of releasing all this stuff, it’s not as if he needs fans to be any any more furious with him and his penny pinching ways, especially when we are bled dry over season ticket prices.

      He wanted guaranteed game-time apparently. I remember his name coming up last season and Arsenal fans saying here we go again!, Sanogo, stuff like that, also, an unknown kid from France? when we should be going for world class. I don’t know if the story is true because those French publications are very unreliable, there is some truth to it but I think Monaco themselves had a say, esp now after seeing this kid in action. Arsenal fans ???

    Almost got mmppae, almost got Suarez, almost got Ibra’vic, almost got Messi blah blah blah. Don’t care

    Wenger is almost man
    Wenger Out!

    Protests won’t do anything
    Organise a Boycott of renewing season tickets
    The Board notices money not protest placards

    But I agree that unity equals strength

      Protests do do something.

      It let’s people know we are not happy. Whether it’s 200 or
      Immediately better 20,000 people the press will pick up on it Especially now this subject is in focus.

      It’s Now or never. Do your bit or sit by and watch Wenger and the board continue their destructive rule.

    You want to protest then do so using all social media, opinion poll and watch groups such as the blackscarf for developments. There are already formed supporter groups that protest and speak out against the AFC board so tune in to this

      Arsene is that you downing your finger at me?

      I can see no reason why any other person let alone an Arsenal fan would object to peaceful protest to end this farce.

      Hehe…quite certain Kroenke et al don’t need facebook or twitter in their Lives..
      .
      Especially when they know what to expect of it (stuffs like criticism , reality check, complaints , revelations, abuses will put em off)
      .
      Best option remains Live protests, banners and placards, Boycotting games, Absenteism at games , chanting and singing em out & No purchase of Merchandise or tickets
      .
      Lets drain their bank accts , dry up their wallets and have their greedy pockets shredded…

        Totally. But all I’m saying is it all helps build momentum and mass.

        The fans through protest need to force the board into action!

      To be candid….
      The ball is mainly in the court of the NORTH LONDONERS….. They are a representative of the Arsenal fanbase the world over!
      .
      If only they were/are more violent in their protest (not violent per say, i meant 100% active enough to quake the Arsenal board) , things coulda taken a better turn by the day…
      .
      But i know some stubborn tea sipping fans who would fly some airplanes in support of Mr. Potato head like they haben’t lived long enogh to know we have suffered!
      .
      CHANGE IS GREATLY NEEDED!!!

    I actually think we need to go further. Start protesting in the stadium at the beginning of a game, not near/at the end. I actually feel a pitch invasion of some sorts will grab huge media attention, disrupt a game! I think it was Charlton, or Coventry fans, a couple of years ago that disrupted a game by kicking lots of beach balls onto the pitch. I think we should do something similar. I can understand why many fans would be reluctant to invade the pitch, so maybe throwing beach balls, or something else, that will not cause physical harm to anyone, should be a way to go.

    I am going to the home game against Leicester, and I will have a banner. Hopefully meet the legend Robbie! He’s the agony uncle for all Arsenal fans.

    I believe the issue is the owners of our club.
    Until Silent Stan shows more desire for Arsenal to win stuff then I will not spend a penny on them.

    Protesting will do what if you turn round and buy a shirt?

    Smarter actions are required IMO. Hit the owner where it hurts… If he is going to stay unambitious then stop giving him your hard earned cash!!! You work for that and give it to him while he is not giving you what you want.

    Wenger is an un-ambitious man, just like the rest of the board
    .
    Why?
    .
    Cuz if he were ambitious he woulda just said to the board…. “DAMN! I’m tired of the Long wait , i want to excel and you guys aren’t giving me enough cash to splash to match my ambitions for this club….I’m walking away to save face”
    .
    But instead ,It’s this way
    .
    “well!…what do i care , they can go ahead and remain trophyless….. As long as i keep earning my cool millions per year…fvck trophies…..gonna leave em when i wish”
    .
    Wenger is guilty as charged….him and the rest of em plastic headed board!
