I doubt that many Arsenal fans will deny that the Arsenal fan base is a divided one and it has been for a few years now.
Of course, there is always division in every club, however, the split among the Arsenal fan base is quite severe and personally I trace it back to the end of the Arsene Wenger era.
Prior to Wenger, there was arguments and disagreements but in my experience never to the degree, it was when Le Professor was in charge.
The minute fans accepted a banner to be unfurled calling for Wenger to go the seeds of discontent were sown and once that door was opened up then there was no shutting it.
Whenever an article about Alex Iwobi was put up one just knew that opinion would be split down the middle and unfortunately racism would creep in.
Then there is Mesut Ozil, stick an article up about the German and the fans would be divided, though that tends to be driven mainly by his followers that have infiltrated our great club, at least they will follow him out of the door when he is finally ejected kicking and screaming from the Emirates.
The point is, that right now, no matter the subject Arsenal fans cannot help themselves but to disagree with each other.
It has become contagious but it will not always be like that.
Once the club starts winning silverware, once it gets back into the Champions League, once they eradicate the poison from the club then harmony will be resumed.
It will never be perfect, there will always be a difference of opinion and rightfully so but it will not be as venomous as it is today.
2021 is too soon in my opinion, 2022 however, is the year that I am confident that Arsenal will get its identity back, hopefully under Mikel Arteta with new loyal players backed up by genuine Arsenal fans.
