Can a game change the mind of Arsenal fans? By SK
Just a week ago, it seemed that every Arsenal fan was united against the club offering a new contract to Wenger! Series of protests before the kick off of games, only showed how fed up the fans were with Wenger. On the internet, on the streets of London, on the pages of newspapers, the discussion was all about how the Arsenal fans wanted Wenger out. This massive protest shook the club to the extent that Mr. Keswick had to come out to make a statement on behalf of the club. The fans showed how powerful they can be.
However on Saturday, towards the end of the game against Lincoln, a “in Wenger we trust” banner was visible at one section of the stands. I was surprised to see the banner; I thought nobody trusted in Wenger again. So what changed the mind of some fans? Was it because we white-washed Lincoln? Was a game enough to change the minds of some fans? Were they to timid to realize that a game was not enough for a man to earn back their trust?
The game against Lincoln was a welcome relief. We had lost form terribly and we needed a good winning game to assure us that our team was not as bad they have been playing. Beating Lincoln by five goals was sweet but it was not enough for us to believe the team was back. While not trying to disrespect Lincoln football club, I feel they are not the type of club we should be celebrating a victory over.
If we had beaten Bayern Munich by even a goal to none, I would have gone to the moon for a vacation. So, why trusting the man who denied me of my vacation to the moon, simply because he beat Lincoln FC? I don’t trust him again and no matter who he beats or how he wins, I still maintain my stand that he should leave Arsenal at the end of the season.
So folks, is one game enough to change your stand on how the club should act at the end of the season?
