[VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS] Arsenal 0-0 Blackburn: Toothless Gunners Throw The Towel In

By on April 2, 2011

Arsenal produced a laboured, gutless and passionless performance to draw 0-0 with 10-man Blackburn at the Emirates this evening. Despite being able to field a strong starting eleven Arsenal never got going and most of the players barley looked like they were putting in the effort required. You would have thought that every player in red & white would be busting a gut to close the gap on leaders United, but we hardly got out of 1st gear.

The best football came in the opening 15 minutes and the final 15 minutes, the majority of the game was terrible. We had a few close calls, Blackburn made a couple of great blocks and clearances, but it has to be said on the basis of this gutless display Arsenal are out of the title race. United showed what champions are made of coming back from 0-2 down to win 4-2, Arsenal just went through the motions expecting a goal to come. Pathetic. Here are the ‘highlights’ from the 0-0 draw with Blackburn for those who want to watch them. I’m sure it will look like Arsenal played ok and were unlucky, but for those who watched the entire 90 minutes, you’ll know how disappointing we were, and this can be confirmed by the loud boos bellowed out by the 60,000 crowd at the final whistle.

    Gunners are completely gone, no doubt about that. The lesson from this is that some vital decisions need to be made. Fabregas should be allowed to go, 2 or 3 established offensive players should be bought, new reliable keeper needed to complement sczechny. Diaby need to see a psychologist. Chamak should be disposed immediately while Wenger should be made to see reasons for all these as his reliance on the young gunners has failed him again. Failure of wenger to see reason should lead him to exit door.

    I think a whole team n coaching staff
    Needed to maybe come in with fresh ideas
    Wenger is so stubborn to see tht his
    Youth policy aint working we need to spend
    Some money to be able to compete to the
    Very end of the season our display was so toothless
    Today its as if we don’t wanna win the league
    Goalkeeper defender midfield n strikers
    Shud come in and fabregas shud leave in the summer
    This was our best chance to win a title
    I wonder wot the board are doing besides filling
    Their pockets

    Wenger earns 6 million a year, Arsenal have one of the highest ticket prices in Europe, we have won nothing in 6 years

    We all know this, even my dog

    But one thing we all should realise is that

    WE FANS PAY THEIR MONEY, THE SHAREHOLDERS, BOARD MEMEBERS, BOARD OWNERS, MANAGER AND PLAYERS

    Did you know that Denilson is on 50.000 week…well you heard it….most of us will never earn that amount in our whole life

    and thats a fact…it hurts doesnt it…

    Well, they dont complain as they get their ridicolous money…and why would they care? would you do the same…

    If only they would show some fighting spirit, just a little bit,

    anybody noticing Arsenal players always talking after defeats and making points straight after that we will deliver soon,

    we have good character and togetherness and so on…

    well I’m gonna tell you one thing….this is all tactics from the club, to keep us fans calm and quiet, dont you understand…just buy the next ticket and everything is fine

    Have you ever heard Wenger slagg a player of and critize his won team when they played bad and lost….NO..NEVER, He never does that, why should he, he is smart…

    insted he blames the pitch or the refere…

    sometimes in life i wonder why nobody sees this??

    Am I the only one?

    ok, here is some facts for you fans

    We won nothing for 6 years and Still Wenger says EXAXTLY the same things after every game,

    – The team is young
    – we showed good character
    – We showed good togetherness
    – the pitch was bad
    – the referee was bad
    – we were not sharp enough
    – we showed good spirit
    – i felt we controlled the game
    – I feel this team will deliver

    well, Why not admit that this team isnt good enough, why just dont do it??

    WHY??

    Stop fooling us fans, Its not funny anymore, even my dog has had enough,

    How many more seasons do we have to suffer the same excuses?

    We play beautiful football, we all know that, but is 50 sideway passes in the middle of the field beautiful,

    or trying to walk the ball into the net by back passing in front of goal??

    WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR FREE FLOWING FOOTBALL THAT WAS SPO FAST AND EFFECTIVE IT EVEN TURNED ON YOUR GILRFRIEND, WHO HATES FOOTBALL??

    I simply cannot understand…

    ok, well,

    instead he says that nobody expected us to finish in the top 4

    WHAT??

    well if that is out target for the football club of ARSENAL, well then I’m off

    Why not invest some money, like every manager else does, WHY??

    Look at Liverpool, they sold torres for 50 million, invested 8 millions more and bought two quality players in Suarez and Carroll

    Wenger sold Touree and Adebayor and got 44 million, and where did that money go, yeah, to the bank and in their own pocket

    do you see the difference?

    I heard some years ago that wenger recieves a % of the players he sells, anybody suprised? We are more and less a selling club,

    but the manager and the board somehow manage to cover it up…they are smart

    Even my dog and my neighbour who is 4 years old knows that we need to invest in a

    – centerback
    – goalkeeper
    – goalscorer

    why dont you think Wenger sees this, and the board, well I’m goona tell you one thing,

    they rather have some millions more added to their account insted of pleesing us fans…

    so it is, Sad but true

    Now I take my dog and my 4 year old neighbour and go for a drinc to the pub

    well, I love you gooners, c-ya

    PLEASE, PLEASE GUNNER FANS – WE MUST SHOW THE BOARD WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THEY DON’T SACK WENGER OR DO SOME SERIOUS DEALING IN THE TRANSFER MARKET NEXT SEASON. PLEASE, STOP BUYING THE SEASON TICKETS FOR NEXT SEASON. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THE REMAINING GUNNERS GAMES THIS SEASON. THEN LETS SEE IF THE TV STATIONS WILL CONTINUE TO PAY THEM THE BIG BUCKS THEY TAKE FOR GRANTED – BECAUSE WE FOOLS KEEP JUST HANDING THEM THE MONEY YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT DESPITE THE PATHETIC SHOWING … ALL ON THE FALSE HOPES THAT WENGER KEEPS SPINNING EVERY SEASON! HIS PHILOSOPHY IS A FAILURE! BUT HIS EGO WON’T LET HIM ADMIT IT! NOW LETS SHOW THESE VILLAINS – THAT THEY CANNOT TAKE US FOR GRANTED ANYMORE!
