Everyone needs a point…. by Matty Barnes
Now, as contentious as this might be (and the responses to this article will highlight my point) is that there’s something utterly pointless about replying to an article on this site, (which incidentally often features some brilliant insight on Arsenal), if your sole purpose is just to argue for the sake of it…and guess what, I’ve been reading loads of past articles on JustArsenal and it appears there’s a few on here that just do that, for what reason I have no idea…
I was inspired to write this having just read the text and replies to an article where someone suggested perhaps winning is more important than watching pretty football. Someone replied with an endorsement saying that while some of the football under Wenger was good to watch it was also frustrating to also lose to Stoke to which someone then responded and told him to stop having a pop at Wenger!!
It was clearly a point of fact in the main text and it demonstrated an example of what the author meant and it had nothing to do with AW directly.
It then generated a pointless discussion, completely off piste, of which we’ve seen on JustArsenal countless times: Proper playground politics..
I was once told a valuable life lesson which was ‘don’t just argue for the sake of it because when a time comes when you believe passionately about something people won’t know that because you “ argue over everything and anything’…. that stuck with me and I totally understand that.
So next time maybe spare a thought for the person that’s written the JustArsenal article and constructed it with a bit of thought for your benefit to read and if you have a genuine point fill your boots but if you’re just arguing with him or her because you’ve not nothing better to do with your time, have a word with yourself….or better still write an article in full and send it to JustArsenal to show you have an opinion on something rather than just an argumentative streak…and remember, it’s not just our clubs that needs a point or two, it’s the Arsenal fans as well…
