Arsenal fans should SUPPORT Arsenal by Sam P
I don’t know what Arsenal have done to deserve it, but we are always the favourite target ofr the media to shoot at. Paranoia? No, because you are not paranoid if people really do NOT like you and are always slagging you off. I am not saying that we are the only targets, because things like the Man United fiasco last season will always give them bullets to fire, but I reckon we get more abuse than any other big club.
Like I said, I don’t know why it is, but I do think that it should galvanise the Arsenal fans rather than making us start to view our manager and our players through their biased viewpoint. Look at last season, when Arsenal were the best team in the Premier League and managed to stay on top of the pile until the injuries kept piling up and we had to do without many of our best players after Christmas.
Even while we were sweeping all before us, including the media’s little pet pooch Liverpool, most pundits continually told us that we were in a false position and that any minute we would collapse. And how pleased were the likes of Michael Owen when it finally happened, but NOT for the reason they had been saying.
And I know that we Arsenal fans were fuming from the performance in Dortmund, but from what the likes of Souness, Redknapp and Scholes came out with afterwards, you would think that we had just been relegated into the conference rather than lost ONE game against a fantastic Dortmund side, in a ground where no English team but Arsenal has ever won.
So come on Gooners, let the media do the Arsenal bashing and let the supporters do the supporting!
