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.
