Arsenal must make a u-turn on the sacking of Gunnersaurus

Gunner be a sore subject today! by Shenel

Just as you thought our club could not sink any lower during this pandemic, they do!

For your information Arsenal fans, waking up today, no it is not April fools and it is not a joke, GUNNERSAURUS has really been relieved of his duties at the club and the excuse that the club is giving is due of the lack of fans in the stadium on matchdays, his duties are not needed! I’M SORRY WHAT?

We know Arsenal stoops to a number of lows at times, I mean getting rid of 55 members of staff to save costs here and there during a pandemic, was just one of those ridiculous lows they fell to recently.

But NEVER in my life did I imagine I would be hearing that our trusted Mascot, who has been part of the Arsenal family for 27 years who I have practically grown up with and whom I love and adore, will no longer be representing the club. What sort of appalling behaviour is this from a club that calls itself a FAMILY!

If this is how you treat family members, then obviously I have been doing something wrong over the years by being too kind! Players come and go and over the years and this is undoubtedly something we are used to as nothing is forever, but getting rid of Gunnersaurus, seriously! I just cannot accept this!!

Come on Arsenal, pull your socks up and make a U-turn on this ridiculous decision. The players claim to love the club, so why don’t they all pull together and collate the funds to be able to cover the wages of our trusted mascot UNTIL fans are accepted back into the stadium and the club feels they need the uses of Gunnersaurus once more!

Thoughts Gooners?

    Everything about arsenal business is shaddy. How much is his salary that he had to be laid off?.. Loyalty has gone to the dogs… That is why I don’t blame Ozil and others…. Stay out and get paid!.. A club that cannot be loyal to a staff deserves no loyalty

      This is a media hype to slander Arsenal. Quy was part of the 55 laid off a couple of months ago. The media sat on this info and decided to publish on deadline day for effect. A lot of people have lost jobs in this pandemic. Quy has been a good servant for Arsenal for 27 years, much like the scout Cagliari. When fans return to stadiums, he might be recalled or someone else can don the costume. Ignore the media created hype, focus on what is real. Perhaps if Ozil had taken a pay cut like the other Arsenal players, this may not have happened. He earns nearly £10m after-tax, offering to pay say £50k for one person might seem magnanimous but if he actually got off the wage bill saving the club £18m, things might be different.

      1. Oluwafemi says:

        You are aware even if Ozil had accepted to have his wage slashed, Jerry Quy the Gunnersaurus would still have been laid off and that lame excuse of “the absence of fans in an empty Stadium” would still have been perceived by the board to be a good enough reason to vindicate them for that action. You know that, right?

    Thought his job is saved by Ozil?

    1. Daren Hubbard says:

      I hoped so but I was wrong now I will never trust news reports or gossip ever again.

  3. Mohsan says:

    This is what I have saying for ages, we as club in recent past and present are acting like money grabbing greedy corporate company rather then a club with values and tradition. How embarrassing it is that others clubs are jumping into support our mascot. I mean when it comes to throwing money Arsenal is right at the front of the que…handing over aburd contacts and signing injured retirement age players. But then we try to save pennies with these cheap moves.

    It was a very poor decision by the club in PR terms. They really hadn’t thought it through.

    Whilst I think that Ozil made a kind gesture, in my opinion it was none of his business to interfere in Arsenal’s employment policy. He should stick to working his way back into the first team squad

    1. Sue says:

      Damned if you do, damned if you don’t springs to mind….

        😂

      2. SueP says:

        Not at all
        His charity work which has been a force for good has nothing to do with interfering in who the club employs or who it makes redundant

        1. Sue says:

          Everyone was disgusted with the club because of this… everyone wanted GS reinstated… MO foots the bill… he’s in the wrong. How does that work???
          The club are in the wrong. End of

        2. Simon says:

          You have issues.. Ozil is free to do whatever he likes with his money!

          1. SueP says:

            So he is going to put him in his payroll then?

          2. Daren Hubbard says:

            The answer is I don’t know people talk a lot of s**t in the 40 years I lived on this earth who knows? I want to know the answer to that too. F**k people if you ask me gossip and theory is nonsense as is science and religion. Humans prefer to fight and kill each other God forbid if we learn to love and respect each other that would be very bad☝️.

  5. Daren Hubbard says:

    My thoughts are I thought ozil would pay for gunnersaurus to stay at least for a while f**k penny pinching rich people any excuse to make people with much less to suffer but I guess it’s nothing new.

  6. BaaH says:

    Yeah. The much maligned & hated Ozil has come out to rescue Arsenal from the shameful & irritating act. I won’t be supprised though if I come to hear the Management rejecting Ozil’s offer. Arsenal is really sliding that low. Professionalism is being thrown out of the window & persoliation is taking over. Unless there is change in ownership of this club, let’s be prepared for the implementation of more horrible policies by the skewed mgt. Thank you Ozil for saving Gunnersaurus

    I love Gunnersaurus.. but life happens to us all doesn’t it..? But I hope this is resolved soon because it is taking a lot of attention from things we should be focusing on.. Coyg.

  8. Arsenal2win says:

    Arsenal in the past has made many mistakes that I will never be surprised by another foolish mistake. Mistakes like selling RVP 2 united, Giroud 2 Chelsea, degrading our label, isolating Ozil, etc. We don’t need 2 tell the world we are poor, we should package our poverty 4 our brand sake !!!

    1. Simon says:

      I like Your last sentence, package your poverty! …. Arsenal Is behaving as if they are the only ones coronavirus is affecting!.. They should behave modest for once

  9. Stan Adams says:

    Latest rumour on Gunnersaurus is Arteta has given Ozil the job !
    Apparently Ozil isn’t happy about it as he considers getting £350,000a week for sitting on his arse doing nothing is a job and wants anorher pay rise for doing two jobs.

  10. Uwot? says:

    Oh please.with all the faux anger.Dont like seeing anyone lose their “ job” but hey” guy was 70 years old,no mortgage,had the job for 27 years ( in this day & age that’s something else) Was on £500 p/wk.Do people what him to drop dead & be carried out? Also I might add.He is being reinstated when fans return to stadium.A storm in a teacup drummed up by a media bashing Arsenal to take the gloss of Partey signing.And as for Ozil.v.cynical indeed if you ask me.

    1. Kstix says:

      Facts only

    2. Moscoron says:

      Thank you, finally someone gets it. What’s is the point of a mascot when there are no fans? He should be paid for work not done? Come on guys, this is business & life. They are being let go for REDUNDANCY sake not that they couldn’t pay their salary. And I can say Ozil really has the best pr team. Now made everybody else feel like the bad guy and himself the good guy. Lol. What a smart move & a d**k move.
      arsenal come first! Before any player or owner. I don’t have issue with korenke as a person, but I have issues with him as a owner because his actions are affecting my club negatively. The same way I don’t have issue with ozil staying and collecting his salary, he earned it & can do whatever he wants with it but I am having issues with him cause his actions put my club in a negative light & his 18m salary stopped arsenal from making some signings that we really need to be better.

      1. Daren Hubbard says:

        Ask players if mascots are decent to have around then you will have your answer till then shut up it also helps team morale especially as no fans are present remember most of the time a fan is under the costume.

  11. Daren Hubbard says:

    F**k you he was 70 so what he loved his job and the team though the years if he wanted or felt he should retire he would have. You never heard to respect your elders that is why I sense your a assholes.

    1. SueP says:

      It’s you who is the foul mouthed asshole
