There have been rumours of Arsenal fans calling for season ticket holders to leave empty seats for tonight’s game against Sunderland, and there were some estimates saying that as many as 10,00 people would not turn up. But did anyone really believe that there would be that many empty seats?
Well here is the proof from one spectator at the game. He has taken a pic of the North Bank, which is traditionally the loudest support for the team. Look at how many seats are empty…..

I must admit I am shocked! I know Arsenal won’t lose any money from the empty seats and may just ignore it, but surely this is the biggest message Arsenal fans could send to the Board?
