The protests just make Arsenal fans look idiotic and entitled

Real supporters don’t expect to win every single game and competition by Coldzero

So some Arsenal ‘fans’ want to remove the manager, the board, Kroenke, and no doubt after that any players that don’t 100 percent pass completion and 100 percent shot accuracy. Where will it end? You think us Arsenal fans are hard done by? You think this is as bad as it gets?

We been competing for years at the highest level, some clubs have never even been in the Europa league, let alone the CL for 20 years straight most have not won the FA cup – never even been to a quarter final. They have no idea what it is like for their team to be in the final stages of a cup let alone win it countless times.

So we haven’t won the EPL in a long time, never won the CL… So what…. Lots of other clubs haven’t- they don’t constantly protest and whine. Why do some Arsenal fans feel so entitled? A few years back we were dominant- now not so much, it happens. We may become dominant again, we may not. But if you are basing your life and feelings around how a football team performs I can assure you that you are in for a big disappointment. We won’t always be on top, it’s impossible, be a supporter is about taking the rough with the smooth.

It seems to me the most vocal and whiny are the people that don’t actually go to the game, they aren’t getting the real atmosphere, the social side to deflect things when we have a bad game. To those people it might perhaps be better that if you can’t get behind the team to help ride this out, stop feeling entitled and embittered when we don’t do well, or heaven forbid other teams do better than us some seasons- then it might be better you find a different team each season to support – the ones that are doing well that year and give you the bragging rights. At least them you can always be on the up, not deal with defeat, always a winner. If as a football supporter you cannot get behind your team and find constant reason to put them down or in some cases hope they lose to prove a point – then it is time you supported someone else if that team is causing you so much anguish, or find another sport.

Don’t bring your problems to a game because you cannot deal with your team not playing 101 football every game and not winning every match- it says more about the person expecting that than the team itself.

We can’t win every game, we are going to have seasons where we are crap and season where we don’t have the players we would like- that’s life and that’s what supporting a team can sometimes be about- you don’t have to support them.

Stop bringing this protest stuff to the games, it ain’t cool and it makes our fanbase look idiotic and entitled. Don’t buy the shirts, don’t come to the games if you feel that strongly – but don’t protest at the team or the ground.

    A few years back we were dominant?
    2004 we were dominant for one season.
    Arsenal fans don’t feel entitled what they expect is a manager who can competently make sensible decisions.
    Someone who can address the squad issues and buy the players we need – does not have to be £200 million just players who can bring us up.
    A manager who is tactically competent – who knows to play players in the correct position.
    Sorry but the author of this post is as deluded and moronic as the manager himself.
    Of course the idiot who wrote this probably wasn’t feeling that way last season or when we lost so pathetically to Liverpool.
    Entitled indeed.
    Entitled to call him a blithering idiot…

        Almost anybody under the age of 55. For starters in the EPL already we could list the obvious in Pochetino, Klopp or take a gamble on Wagner, Koeman or others from abroad like Simeone.
        For a salary like we are paying Wenger of £10.5 mil that is one thing we are extremely competative as most of them are on under £3.5 mil. Only the 2 Manchester clubs pay more. Even Conte is only on £6.5 mil.

        About the topic: Arsenal is one of the richest teams in the world and used to be a big team…so why we have to compare ourself with the smaller teams?? Are we arsenal fans paying tickets price like a smaller team? Paying salaries like a smaller one? Manager salaries?? We have to demand the best…we are not complaning because we are not won the epl, we are demanding to get a manager who are capabable to compete, what is exactly what we were promised every single year, after failure
        Who can do better? Ivan answer u quet well…i willl not waste my time abswering that miope question

      Yes, Arsenal was dominant when the super rich people like Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour have not owned the Premier League clubs. But that should not be an excuse, because Leicester City won the Premier League with very small budget.

      I agree that there are many fans want Arsenal to win every game, with any means necessary. Well I am not one of them.

      I don’t want Arsenal change their style to very pragmatic one ala Mourinho, Ranieri and Simeone, just for the sake of winning. What I want to see is beautiful and entertaining football, while the players play with high football skills.

      I want Arsenal to always try to display good shows and fight with all resources they have, also be more adventurous in their play. I think the fifth richest football club in the world should be able to do that.

      ..and it’s not expecting to win games, it’s expecting TO MAKE AN EFFORT to win games. Although I was disappointed by the Stoke game, I felt that at least we put 100% into it. I didn’t feel that way with the Liverpool game.

      Lol this just made my day, we dont even win 75% of our games let alone every game.
      We are entitled to have a fair chance at winning like the top 6 teams that we are. we look like the weakest right now

      we are entitled to have a competent manager not a over expired has been manager( i used to rate him as high as fergie now he’s gone senile, arrogant and stubborn)

      We are entitled to have a good happy squad that want to play for the team and the manager, most of the team obviously don’t want wenger, some show it, some don’t out of respect, some are blindly faithful like part of our fan-base.

      We are entitled to demand change because we are arsenal and we clearly see the club in decline and most of the reason for it. if liverpool fans managed to get hick and gillette out, we should get the leech kroenke out.

      We have been crap most of the 13 years without winning the titles, we are entitled at least 2 or 3 season where we properly challenge if not win.

      Perhaps you should change sports and join a game where everyone wins and lose.
      what a dumbass move to tell people with different opinions to go.
      You are probably retarded, dumb, naive and a special kind of stupid to think your opinion is better than us. Now go cry to your mama or maybe arsene daddy lol.

      Do you watch Arsenal games?
      Did you watch the Liverpool game?
      Were you happy with that ?
      I will always support the team.
      But as for the manager the sooner he leaves the better.
      I cannot possibly lend my support for him for the simple reason that he has put his own selfish needs before everything and everyone.
      This was not about him believing he can lead Arsenal to the top – he simply cannot. This was about his fear of walking away from being in control – he is a control freak.
      And our disastrous form and activity in the transfer market shows that I am right..

          I realized most of them deluded ones talking about support, they only support Wenger including his horrible repeating decisions.. we want new manager coz this one is really really old, not only his age but most things he does.. time has passed and he’s still stuck in the 90s

          You Wenger lovers should make it clear who you support.. and don’t talk about positivity when what you call positive is negative in the real world. We wish for the club to succeed but you AKBs wish for Wenger to rule forever no matter how inept he’s become

    real talk, i think this is a great article, in my hometown there is a club which is in the second division of my country and some years ago there was a real possibility that we could promote to the first division but we didnt manage to and now its a bit more difficult but even then the fans who come, come for their entertainment and to be happy with their close friends drinking beers or a dad with his son etc. and we shout if we are winning and discuss every decision (mostly its right one but football fans dont seem to agree with right decisions against their club 😀 ) and we shout if we are losing too, because i dont support a team to be sad.. i support them to be entertained or to be happy that i support them and if my support turns to possessiveness and anguish for every loss, then i have other problems which i project onto the club, because as you correctly said for me seeing arsenal play makes me happy and i DO want them to win the league, but i wont be depressed if they dont

    At the end of the day its there rights if they want to protest, so what if you think it makes them look idiotic and entitled. The owner, the board have been making us look idiotic for years, it wasn’t the fans that sold us a dream that leaving Highbury and selling all our top players just so we can sit in the state of the art stadium, with over priced tickets and watch mediocre football, it wasn’t the fans that said we would be able to compete with the top teams just to watch us get smashed by them, it wasn’t the fans that said we will be able to buy top players and make a profit in the transfer window, its not the fans who take 4year’s to address a problem position and neglect other areas, its not the fans who let most of there best players enter the final year of there contracts, if it takes people to look idiotic and entitled to make a point, so be it

    You sir, are one of the main reasons the club is in the situation it is in now.

    Not only are you accepting the mediocrity that has been creeping into this club over the last 10 or so years, you are embracing this mediocrity.

    We have players who clearly just want to collect a pay check. A manager who couldn’t organise a defense if his life depended on it, insists on playing players out of position and drops key players for no reason. We have a clear need for quality in defense and central midfield. Instead of addressing this need, we make a 30m profit in the transfer window and call this successful. Meanwhile fans are being charged the highest season ticket prices in the world.

    Your solution to this is to go and support someone else? Do you actually spend hard earned money to go and watch Arsenal play? i have been a season ticket holder for 22 years and it hurts.

    Failure to address the same deficiencies year in year out. Groundhog day. We have a good base, its just a few additions to really push us on. Not necessarily player wise, but jeez Arsene, loosen the noose, let Bouldy have a good amount of time to drill the team in the art of defending. We score plenty, we concede too many. Is that too much to ask that a manager addresses the shortcomings of a team?

    Most don’t expect to win every game, but most do want to go up against the big boys knowing that we can but in something more than school boy stuff.

    No. Not really
    Its Kroenke, Wenger and Gazidas. (the three stooges) who make us look idiotic

    If Wenger had got Lacazette 2 years ago for example we could have beat Leicester for the PL. City, Chelsea, Spuds, Liverpool were all behind us. Ozil was on form, nearly getting Henry’s assist record. But Walcott was played up front and Giroud went on a 12 game non scoring streak. (if I remember correctly). So just getting a top striker would have won us the PL probably. Wenger’s reputation would have been restored.

    Now because he only upgraded striker and LB and not Central midfield, not getting Lemar and not getting another Top CB we could possibly finish 6th place

    Out of Arsenal, United, Chelsea, City, Liverpool, Spurs and Everton where do we rank?
    Only time will tell but I think the Top team will be United and at the moment after are 4-0 loss to Liverpool and their 5-0 loss to City we seem to be behind United, Liverpool and City at least. We will have a better idea of where we stand after playing Chelsea.

    Also, I may get thumbs down but on paper Spurs still look better than us. Defense, central midfield and attack.

    Also keep in mind why Kroenke, Wenger and Gazidas are multi-millionaires. Because of the FANS. We buy Tickets, Arsenal Merchandise, use our sponsors. If we don’t protest to try and change things we simply look like Muggs.

    All we want is for a decent manager who will complete our team with top quality players. Every summer we fall short. Every summer. Our rivals LOVE Wenger. Really. Spurs and all the others want Wenger to stay. What does that say?

    Loosing a game or few isn’t the problem of fans. The way how we are loosing precisely without any fight. Year after year you and entire world knows what are to be done to be make us champions again and we are the only club ignoring it. How many teams have players like Wallcot, warming the bench with a weekly wages of 140,000. How many teams are in this world allows their best players to run out their contract, cannot offload the players who are enjoying overpay without playing through out a season for example Debuchy, Jenkinson etc.

    Admin you clearly do not watch football much. Supporters at other clubs make just as big a song and dance when their teams don’t perform to their capability and lack fight. For example in Spain with their white flags and in Italy and South America where physical violence is sometimes seen.
    Ours is more noticeable as the same situation has been continued for 10 years where we usually raise hopes by competing well until December then the losses start and then somewhere around March/April we pick up again.
    At most top clubs when a team stagnates in the league the board change manager as you have seen at Man U, Chelsea, Spuds and Liverpool. That is why in England protests have not really been seen too much at other clubs. It is only in the last few years that supporters have voiced their disapproval and that is because nothing changing and it is like Groundhog day (or should I say season) every year.
    For those who are happy for Arsenal to just be a cup team not capable of even trying to be competitive in the league then I can see why you are happy. Personally seeing us being like West Ham, Southampton and Everton and having such a limited ambition makes me sad.
    That said I wish the protests were kept out of the stadium as I don’t think t helps and concentrated more on the money side which I think is the only thing the owner cares about.

    My dad, now 73 watched us win 1 league title in 36 years once. I started watching us with him just before we won our first European title, the following year we won the double, which was his first title. Attract point I just thought this is arsenal we are simply the greatest. It was then another 18 years until we won the league again. Ok there was an fa cup and a league cup during that period. But there was protests, Mee out (after we nearly got relegated) Neill out, Howe out, Burtenshaw out. However, my support of the club has never wavered and never will. Sure financially I have stopped funding the kroenke just giving club, but I am still an away supporter and I am a fan of the club from my spot in the pub. As soon as Kroenke goes, I am all over it again, but my honest opinion is that changing wenger alone, will not change our fortunes.

    “A few years back we were dominant”!! Really? That must have passed me by! I think Coldzero needs to do his research before writing another article, and a real fan would know it was a whopping 13 years ago that Arsenal last won a major trophy.

    Arsenal fans that live in the real world, like myself, don’t expect Arsenal to win every game, and every trophy going, of course not! But we should be competing, at the very least!

    I have to say that I am disgusted by this article, and shame on Coldzero. First of all, we live in a democracy. We have the right to protest. Arsenal fans have been incredibly patient, but no more! What do expect fans to do? The club treats us terribly, in fact, we’re probably the worst treated fans in Europe! Should we just continue to stay silent, turn up at the stadium with big smiles on our faces, ignore ALL the problems (which none of them are recent), have big smiles on our faces after so many shocking performances?

    So what I gather from this writer, is that when faced with adversity, we should just roll over and take it? It doesn’t matter how horrifically we’re being treated, we shouldn’t try and change things for the better?

    Finally, to say we’re entitled is ridiculous! But if any fan of any club were to feel like that, then Arsenal fans should have a right too considering how much money we pump into the club. We pay the highest ticket prices on the planet! We should get something back for that, and we’re not!

    Coldzero clearly wants to treated very badly by Arsenal, and also wants end to free speech. I am sorry, but I cannot agree with that!

      13 years since Arsenal won a major trophy!
      There are THREE trophies in England and Arsenal have won one of them, the FA Cup, three times in last four years.
      If you don’t think that the FA Cup is a trophy try talking to a Tottenham fan that hasn’t won an FA Cup in 25 years! Liverpool havent won it since 2005.
      Arsenal have won it NINE times since Spurs last won it. It is the second most important trophy in England, but are you saying there is only one trophy worth winning??

        Everyone knows the EPL and CL are the trophies everyone wants, and puts the effort into, the FA cup sits somewhere between the EFL and the EPL cup, mid-level, which is exactly where we are – we are competing with Leicester according to Kroenke, so why don’t we have Leicester season ticket prices?

      With Ramsey, Walcott and co, we are plain average, no matter what the fans will do to motivate them

        Ox was sold for 35M. Ramsey plays, while Theo comes on from the bench.

        I too would like better positional play by Ramsey, so I hope that his place as MF would go to Kolasanic for some games to see how it would work.

    There we are, we beat Bournmouth and weegor fans raise their deluded heads again. Do they forget the ten goal pounding by the Germans, the very, very poor league campaigne last season and the previous 8, the lies and broken promises and the sheer embarrassment that has been bestowed on us the Arsenal fans. Some say to get behind the team and management, I am an Arsenal supporter through and through but I will never be behind weegor and the current board. They are totally degrading.

    No – it is KROENKE that is making us look idiotic – we pay the highest ticket prices in the WORLD, we are ENTITLED to see a decent, competitive team on the pitch, not having our hard earned money, which is supposed to invested into the club we support siphoned off into KROENKE SPORT ENTERPRISES.

        We don’t – to be competitive we need leader in the defence, ably demonstrated when Per was playing, and a shielding midfield player. This is obvious to everyone watching, and was obvious to Wenger, but yet again we made a profit in the transfer window, rather than addressing the deficiencies, thanks to Kroenke. For our spending in the transfer window to make such an abrupt turn could’ve only come from Kroenke. One moment we were buying players, the next we stopped everything, said we had no money and went on a fire sale, selling players for 5 million less than had already been bid. And for anyone thinking Wenger is the problem, or has the slightest chance of being replaced, Kroenke is 100% happy with what he is doing, and was so happy that he overruled the board, who would base their decisions on football, rather than the current bank balance, like Kroenke, and gave him a 25% pay increase. As long as that dead-weight is majority share-holder we are doomed to mid level mediocrity while having to pay the highest prices in the world to see it.

    Kroenke must be a Spud, no one could’ve done a better job ruining Arsenal Football club – the Spuds should knight him – Arise Sir Kronke of Totteringham!

    Some people indeed suffer from double standards. During the period when Arsenal was not winning trophies they were clamouring for any trophy even Carling cup and they were rubbishing top four finish. They even nicknamed it the ‘Wenger trophy’. In 2014 when Arsenal won FA after nine years without a trophy all of a sudden the FA cup was labelled a small trophy! I haven’t heard anybody call the Capital one cup a small trophy maybe because Arsenal hasn’t won it in a long time. I recall the same people praising Man U for winning it and saying Moorings had started his usual habit of winning trophies. We need to get real. A trophy is a trophy no matter what your opinion is. Similarly only feeble minded people use double standards to suit their selfish interests.

    To get to top four Arsenal has to win most of the games at home. Basically, we must win against the top sides. That kind of victory is hard to achieve at home with less fan support. If we want top four this year, we must support the team and manager 100%.

    I think is would be fine to attack the owners for not giving a proper transfer budget of 200M to win the EPL.

    Winng the CL is not possible. For that we have to spend much more, and buy a Messi type of player. It will cost a lot more than 200M.

    There is a small chance this year to win the EPL, because we are not playing in the CL and because we have Ozil, Sanchez and Lacazette. We should score many more goals than last year, if we keep these three players together. It also means get a stronger mid-field, and for that we need a better performance from Xhaka, or I would like to see Kolasanic tried there for a few games. I also want to see Welbeck in the side, even if it means starting him behind Sanchez. Then we have issues on the RW: maybe Iwobi or Nelson can play there. I think if we are lucky Koz will stay health, and Mustafi regains form, then we have the English lads.

    While the teams is Wengers to create to win, we need to back him and the team. This year Chelsea have Chelsea type problems inside the club. City are still creating a new team, and have problems with injury too. United is fragile at the back, and still have fragile egos, and Mauriho can attract trouble. Liverpool cannot perform as well against physical teams, and they have issues with their star player. The Spurs might have issues too with player not being paid, and maybe Real coming for Kane…

    We Arsenal fans need to be more strategic and also realize that many team are going to also miss international players.

    I thin we make top four this year. Wit fan support at home, we could go further.
