Time to move on and start supporting Arsenal once again
Hello gooners; Good day! Hope we are getting prepared for another weekend of football? Hope we are ready to support our team, no matter how bad we feel about happenings in the club?
Football fans and supporters are a very powerful and an important ingredient needed for the successful running of any club side. We have enormous power; powers that we may not even be aware of.
In good times or in bad times, we must learn to always support our club. Either we belong to the “Emery out” or “Emery in” brigade, we need to be united in supporting Arsenal on match days. A situation whereby a team is being slaughtered on the pitch and the home fans are booing or hurling abuses at them is not a good one. Everybody wants to feel loved, even at their low points; Arsenal has players who are human beings. The coach may not be the most popular figure at the Emirates right now, but he is still the coach and as such, should still command our respect, support and loyalty, at all times.
Human beings respond to care and affection. When a man is at his lowest point, what he needs is encouragement and not abuse or a vote of no confidence. Great teams of the past have always been cheered to success by an ever relentless support base. Can we still try our best to push Arsenal to success? At least, until the end of the season?
Let me share with you guys how I spend my match days. On match days, I wake up very early in the morning, do some house chores and by mid noon, I am fully ready to go out there and support Arsenal. I go out fully dressed in all round Arsenal attire. I am not one to be ashamed of putting on my jersey because I have learnt to always support my team both in good and sad times.
Let us all rally round our darling Arsenal; let us realize that we are supporting Arsenal and not individuals. Let us all rise above our disappointments and push the team forward with one voice, whoever is in charge…
