Anyone concerned with either Arsenal or Man City will also have been a temporary fan of Norwich City this weekend, and not just in the hope of hearing a ‘tired and emotional’ Delia Smith drunkenly cajoling the Norwich fans with a microphone. If the Canaries had managed to take any points off Manchester United it would have almost ended their top four hopes for the season.
Per Mertesacker has been ruled out for the rest of the Premier League campaign, having had to have been taken off during the weekend’s tie with Norwich City.
Wenger deserves great credit for Arsenal win by Sam P
When Arsene Wenger turned to the Arsenal bench early in the second half of a tough game against a Norwich City side fighting for their Premier League survival, the Arsenal fans were delighted to see Danny Welbeck getting ready to come on and with plenty of time to influence the game.
I might not have held up a banner myself but I can understand what drove some Arsenal fans to arrange a protest at the home game against Norwich City yesterday. For one thing, the protest was not just about Arsene Wenger but at the whole issue of leadership and ambition and it does seem that things have gone stale and need a shake-up.
I very much doubt whether the attempt by Arsene Wenger to curtail the planned protest from Arsenal fans today will have any effect, unless his ill advised decision to suggest that the Gunners’ failures at home were down to the atmosphere created by the fans rather than their lack of grit, ability, spirit or tactics actually make the protest bigger and louder than it would have been.
Okay so things should get very interesting at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow, where Arsenal play host to a Norwich City side fighting for their Premier League survival. There was already going to be protests from the Arsenal fans about how the club and the groundhog day of a season and the need for either Arsene Wenger to change his ways or be replaced.
Arsenal host Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening, in what could prove to have a huge impact at both ends of the table.
The Canaries come into the match having dropped into the relegation zone only last week, and with only three matches remaining after this one, they will be desperate to get to something out of this match.
Arsene Wenger is clearly well aware about the protests being planned by the angry Arsenal fans for our Premier League match against struggling Norwich City at the Emirates stadium tomorrow, because the manager today issued a sort of rallying cry asking for us to support the team as he tries to avoid the complete disaster of dropping out of the Champions League places for the first time in his long tenure in charge of the club.
