Arsenal fan groups announce riots? Interesting times for sure! by KM
Well, well, a happy good day to you all! By far the best news for me is coming from the fact that three of the Arsenals biggest fan groups – the Arsenal Supporters club, the Black Scarf movement and REDaction have released statements that change is needed. I feel like there is no need to quote the statements, because this site had enough of the points pointed out there being put in place!
I would watch the Norwich game just to see if this emerges. Minutes 12, 78 and the end of the game is where the banners are announced to be lifted and they should be available from people who will print out more and give them out near the stadium as well as local pubs near the ground. So if you want to see the end of Arsene’s reign, you can grab one for me too!
There have been single banners and printed papers here or there asking for Arsene and Kroenke to leave in other games, but this time it is supposed to be organised. It is really interesting to see how big this will turn out to be, because the empty seats against WBA were a pretty obvious sign too, although this is bigger. This is a direct slap in Arsene’s face and a clear message to the board.
This is the result of a broken system tearing up it’s people until they realise that there is nothing more to lose than the system itself! The reason Arsene cannot resolve the situation is because he himself is the problem! And speaking of him, he’ll be hoping Leicester win at Old Trafford or at least get a draw, because Wenger is incapable of winning the remaining 3 games of the season and even he himself admitted that he fears for our top 4 place!
But I feel like this is bigger than the top 4. In some extend the Champions League spot has become a virus the club is sick of. It’s a label, you can take the league table at the start of the season put Arsenal fourth or occasionally third and then put the other teams in. You build a house from the ground up. If we want our roof to be higher than the top 4, than we need to lift the floors higher, but if the basics rotten, we might as well build a new house!
The top 4 is not guaranteed for Arsenal, nor is it for any other team and we have to live with the fact that when Arsene goes we might not get it. In terms of moving forward it’s a risk we have to accept. Getting back the excitement in watching Arsenal though is far bigger than fourth place for me. The Board will have to carefully think their next move, because hiring another yes man or leaving an untrained manager like Henry or Bould take charge may result in the fans anger turning towards them.
That’s not something they would like, because part of the reason Arsene is still here is that he has to eat all the negativity in exchange for those mere 8 million pounds a year! Being part of the protest at the Norwich game means you can get fate in your own hands! Be part of a change that would lead Arsenal to better days! A chance to put someone that would break the 4th trophy, the losers mentality, the injury hells, the excuses, the lack of a spine and character and all the other burdens that Arsene has inflicted on this football club.
I really hope this happens and that it’s massive! People already have invented catchy chants and the designs for the banners are simple, yet so deep in their message. Being part of this means you can express how you feel and be sure this will be recognised! And it doesn’t mean not supporting the squad, as the supporters group have mentioned. It’s about a change in the way we are managed as a business rather than a football club and changing the clown that’s running the circus.
Alan Pardew lost the Newcastle fans and inevitably it cost him the job. The ‘Sack Pardew’ signs did the trick and banners will do it for Arsene as well if we apply them. Bring the sheet of paper to every Arsenal game until change happens and it will.
The club is the fans! Among countless years of failure uniting all of us as a fist that will punch Arsene out of the front door of the Emirates will be the BIGGEST victory this football club has achieved!
Enjoy your week!
