The fans have to get behind the team, the manager and ALL the players.
Arsenal spent so many years underachieving under the management of Arsene Wenger that it is not surprising that we have decided not to allow Unai Emery to spend more years at the helm with no achievement.
However, there is a thin line between being dissatisfied and being toxic. Recent events around the Emirates is now a genuine cause for concern, and fans need to have a good look at themselves while venting their frustration.
Every team needs its fans behind them in good and in bad times, and Liverpool’s Anfield remains a good example.
Seldom would you hear the fans of the Reds turn against their own players despite Jurgen Klopp spending four years before winning a trophy.
The abuse that was thrown at Granit Xhaka when we took on Palace is something that should be far away from a healthy environment and it is only when playing under the best circumstances that our players will flourish.
Yes, we know how frustrating it can be to watch teams like Leicester City make progress before our eyes, but our players can’t get better within a toxic environment.
Football fans have to remain loyal in good and in bad times, and that is what Arsenal fans need to be right now. One thing we know for sure is that the players, manager and club board all want success and they are doing their best to help the team achieve that.
We have to play our role as club fans well too, providing them with the environment needed for them to bring the team back to their best. Every team has gone through a bad period, but it never lasts and neither will it last in our case.
