My opinion on Arsenal fans opinions! by Dan the Cannon
So, it’s been a while since I’ve taken time to write another article but given the fever of opinion and imminent manager change at Arsenal, I wanted to use my voice again.
At the time of writing this, Emery may already be packing his boxes but I’m not so sure a manager change is going to improve our situation. Now I’m not saying Emery is the right fit, I’ve said since about game 4 this season he isn’t, but genuinely who is out there as a replacement to improve us, and more importantly who would want the job given the tensions between club and supporters.
As an Arsenal fan for 41 years I can’t recall a more toxic atmosphere amongst us supporters. We have to take some responsibility with our “no patience” approach to absolutely anything we deem not quite right.
AFTV is not a great advert, and sites such as these are full of negativity, I include myself in this, so is it any surprise our team also feels it.
The board are ok, they back when they have needed, the manager was ok but has lost it now, the players are good on the whole but have no confidence, playing with fear which inevitably leads to basic mistakes. It’s helped to lead this lack of identity.
It’s going to take a very good manager to link everything back together. The fans, the players, the identity and the positive environment that any club needs to thrive.
We don’t run the club, but we have it in our hands to bring positive change, rather than a negative environment.
It is my view the club will make the changes when it is right, and the fans reaction has little bearing on that. I am trying to be positive although with lower expectation, so what difference will you make?
