‘Arsene Wenger Is Disrespectful To The Fans’

By on October 27, 2011

Arsenal supporters and shareholders left yesterdays AGM at the Emirates branding Arsene Wenger and the club ‘disrespectful’ to the fans.

Angry supporters claimed the club have stood still while their competitors strengthened their squads with big-money signings and one shareholder said the meeting was the worst he had ever attended as Wenger dodged questions ‘like a politician’. Watch the video of two supporters as they left the Emirates:

    I dont care who these people are , but I care about the club. I agree with the boss
    we should be getting behind the team . Look at Liver pool last season , did their supported turn on the , no way . if they can do it why cant we just support the team . I am as frustrated as the other person , but if we continue moaning all the time no one will want to come to the club.
    Another thing we cant even make enough noise on match day .

      Damn right. Fair-weather fans put down your cucumber sandwiches, take a reality check on the financial situation of some of our rivals and start supporting the club. If you don’t agree then p**s off to another club.

    I too was at the AGM and we did not leave fuming or found Wenger disrespectful. Ignore that old fool on the video and what he says. Mr Wenger was his usual inspiring and honest self, a great orator who loves the club deeply.

    Seriously, this tiny minority that constantly vilify the manager and the club are the ones who are disrespectful.

          I do and I do. I Support Arsenal, not Arsene.
          That’s the problem to many wenger Sycophants.
          There was an Arsenal before Wenger and there will be a better one when he is gone.
          Any manager of Arsenal should have been sacked after the 8-2 result.

    What has arsene said that is disrespectful? Club av ups and downs, but it’s the responsibility of the fans to stay behind their team no matter wat the situation is.. Liverpool, juve last season, inter milan dis reason, those are examples of teams dat ‘re hit by dis so call ups nd downs but the fact remains that their fans stood behind them despite the slump.. At Arsenal, we started the season on a bad note, it doesn’t mean that we’re gonna end on a bad note.. Previous seasons where we started brightly ends on bad notes, maybe this season is going to be a reverse..I love arsenal and will always do.. Arsenal my life.

    • Martin

      October 28, 2011 at 12:43 am

      Supporters can support the team but not the manager.

      ‘Previous seasons where we started brightly ends on bad notes’

      What does that say about the manager who gets paid £7,000,000 a year

      • Charlie

        October 28, 2011 at 4:40 am

        He’d be getting more if he’d accepted the job at Real Madrid. That’s not a high wage for a manager of a top 4 team in the Premier League and after 14 years in the top four you can’t deny that.

        • Martin

          October 28, 2011 at 11:06 pm

          Funny how wenger will not pay the same for top players though but is happy to pay Diaby a ridiclus amount of money.

        Martin u are obviously not an arsenal fan.pls shut ur trap and support this great club instead of moaning about its troubles or leave.

          October 28, 2011 at 7:34 pm

          ad, you muppet, I support Arsenal, not Arsene like jokers like you. When wenger leaves I hope you leave with him.

          October 28, 2011 at 7:46 pm

          It’s not about the glory, it’s about the mistakes that have cost us that glory. It’s about extending the contracts of perma-crocks like Diarby but losing out on players like Mata. It’s about the Denilson’s, Chamakh’s, Almunia’s and silvestre’s.
          We let Bendtner go on loan and kept a worse player in Chamakh, what a joke.
          It’s about wenger wenger saying he will buy players of super super quality and then not doing it.
          It’s about poor players on ridiculous wages, so much so that we cant even sell them.
          If your happy with that, it’s up to you

        Martin…and what were you expecting Manager of the Decade to be earning? Frankly I think Wenger would be earning double that at another club. You are obviously an idiot coz Mancini earns more than Wenger already and his contract is already coming up for renewal!

        • Martin

          October 28, 2011 at 10:13 pm

          Im an idiot? Your the one full of bile.

          Mancini won the FA cup last season, city beat united 6-1 away and are sitting top of the league with a +26 goal difference after 9 games

          Wenger Lost the league cup to a relegation team, Lost away to united 8-2 and are sitting 7th with a Minus goal difference after a run of 2 consecutive league wins against teams in the bottom seven!

        October 28, 2011 at 7:44 am

        Because its the usual tabloid crap, sensationalising comments made by a couple of guys who don’t agree with everything that’s gone on at an AGM. In my experience its rare to find total agreement about everything at any AGM anywhere. There are a lot of people making noise about Arsenals performance and wanting reckless spending to improve it., There are many more who realise that football is a cyclical business and that no-one can be on top all the time. We lost Fab and Nasri for different reasons one for love and one for money – that’s life, just accept it. Anyone with any sense can see that the sustainable financial model used at Arsenal will be better for us in the long run. You say attendances are falling but I still don’t see season tickets being given away by the club. You say that Arsene doesn’t know what honest means but that’s just because he doesn’t say what you want to hear. You also say that he’s disrespectful in saying that if there is too much in fighting in the club we will not be successful – that’s not disrespectful, its truthful. I suggest you buy a dictionary and look up the meaning of the words. Also, look up the word ‘shite’ because that’s what you’re talking.

        • Martin

          October 28, 2011 at 8:10 pm

          It’s funny how every wenger lover can only post an argument that contains an insult or abuse, maybe you should buy a dictionary so that you can post without the need for foul language.
          1. No one is calling for reckless spending but spending nothing on chamakh is reckless.
          2.It’s not just about selling players like Cesc and Nasri, it’s about six years of letting our best players leave and replacing them with cheap inferior ones.
          3. The sustainable financial model will not work if we are not successful on the pitch.
          4. Why would someone want to give up their season ticket, these take years to obtain and puts the season ticket holder in a lose lose situation. The tickets are unfairly the highest in the world yet the team does not match this high standard.
          5. I heard Wenger say that we would only buy players of super super quality, thats a lie.
          6. We haven’t been successful for six years, should we blame that on Wenger or in fighting?
          7. Also look up, and see what is happening around you, plus you talk more shite

  6. Ross

    October 27, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    Pfft. Liverpool spent over 30 mil for Andy Carroll. That’s a joke and not a funny one.

    Also, saying Arsene Wenger is disrespectful to the fans is rubbish, the second interviewee was referring to a collective, he never once says Wenger himself dodged questions, and the first interviewee said Wenger was a genius who needed someone to complement him with off-field business – he was calling for Dein to be reinstated.

    From what I’ve read, heard and seen, most of the ire was directed toward Hill-Wood, but write what you will. By the way: What’s the next story? Wenger sold his soul to Satan for a CL spot? Wenger gambled away their off-season profits playing Pachinko?

    Journalists and the sports media in general are addicted to sensationalism – it’s sad. I clicked on this article because I knew the truth would be manipulated and it was. Where’s the objectivity these days? It’s all about “hits”, much to the detriment of journalism. It’s a goddamn shame and it’s getting worse. Writing, research and objective opinion have been lost to a sycophantic craving for the controversial and everyone disregards the facts if it makes for a “good story”, whatever the hell that is these days. The tabloids have won and nobody seems to be doing anything about it.

    Rant over, a pointless endeavour in the grand scheme of things, but it was somewhat cathartic.

      October 28, 2011 at 12:20 am

      Well said and articulated!
      Media has achieved its target by planting doubts in the minds of Arsenal supporters by distorting information and propagating false and biased views. Arsenal is blessed to have a genius in the likes of Arsene. I can’t stop laughing when listening talk sport today when said Arsen’s achievement is the product of George Grham’s team. I can’t remember one player from the invincible 2004 team. In Arsen we Trust!

      October 28, 2011 at 12:55 am

      we paid nothing for Marouane Chamakh, that’s a joke and not a funny one.
      In wenger we rust

      • Ross

        October 28, 2011 at 7:26 am

        Would you have preferred we paid money for Chamakh, are you prepared to say that before we bought him you thought he was rubbish on account of your numerous scouts in Europe? The guy flopped, just like Zhirkov, Pavlyuchenko, Shevchenko, Del Horno, Robinho, latter day Owen (a church of much discontent), the list goes on and on it’s not confined to Arsenal. Another player who cost nothing was… Jack Wilshere.

        Also, don’t you think it’s overly sensitive and even pedantic to say he disrespected the fans, indirectly I might add, by saying we should unite or we have no chance?

        If you do anything in life, from the trivial to the complex, it’s a generally accepted norm that you’ll do better with positive encouragement and objective criticism, than if you have the people who care about the outcome of your deeds standing there pissing and moaning and saying your rubbish; especially when everyone else outside of your support network is doing just that. That’s just logic, it’s fact, not a slight toward those who were disappointed with your results, not a torch held up in the name of Wenger, just common sense.

        Last season hurt a lot, I agree. We choked at the last minute in the CC and then lost away to Barca and Man. U. in consecutive weeks and well, the writing was on the wall from there. But if you think the best thing to do is stick the boot in when their down, to point to their mistakes and say they were shit and they’ll never get there, and we’ll only boo you until you get results, and then after a certain period we’ll be happy to cheer for you again, then that’s your prerogative, one that makes absolutely no sense to me. Just support the team Martin, we sorely need it!

        • Martin

          October 28, 2011 at 8:30 pm

          1. I would rather Arsenal not have bought him. Also I would have rather us bought a striker in the Jan transfer window when RVP was injuried instead of just holding out so Wenger could try to be clever and get hold of the ‘gem’ Chamakh for free.
          2. For every Jack there are 10 or 20 Denilsons.
          3. It is disrespectful to the fans because he is now trying to shift the blame on to them rather than look at his own failings.
          4. How long does that go on for, about three season’s ago Wenger said ‘judge me in may’ well now we are.
          5. Ross I surpport Arsenal, after last season ended pretty much the same as the previous one’s, wenger should have gone. If he had done the respectful thing there would be no need for the booing, bad feelings, etc etc
          6. At least you can have a different opion without being foul.

          • Ross

            October 28, 2011 at 11:10 pm

            Martin, you’re all over this forum. haha, nice.

            It’s obvious that Wenger isn’t going to go. He’s the dream manger for a board that needs/wants financial prudence.

            I believe we should have spent more money over the years; Mata should be in the team this season, so should Hazard, or Martin, Mvila etc; we should have paid Cole whatever the little bastard wanted as he’s one of the best LB’s in the world; any number of CD’s should have been bought, and the youth project would have paid dividends already if we’d bought the odd marquee player each year to convince the youngsters Arsenal was the right place to carve out a long career, rather than getting their stripes and leaving; and Usmanov should be on the board. You’ll probably agree with much of this, but it is the wage structure that limits the club unnecessarily, it is not solely Wenger’s fault.

            Where our opinion differs most is that a rallying cry is disrespectful to the fans. It simply isn’t, in his speech he acknowleges that he’s not beyond reproach, but he is right that we need to get behind the team. When they were booed toward the end of last year did we improve? No, we nose dived when the fans were needed most. The players heads dropped as the weight of failure bore down on their shoulders and even the best of motivators can only do so much when that occurs. Doesn’t that make sense?

            Personally, I don’t boo players, as much as the Denilson’s, Senderos’, Silvetres’ haha, and so forth annoy me. It’s not constructive, it’s detrimental. Wenger is not perfect but he is here to stay, whether we like it or not, that is carved in stone! This being the case, he gets my support; if the board chucks him and gets someone else, then I’ll be right behind them too.

            Thanks for noting that I don’t fling insults about.

            • Martin

              October 29, 2011 at 6:32 pm

              Good Post Ross,

              Yeah you are right that I agree with most of your views and it is nice to see that people can post constructively.

              The reason i think Wenger was disrespectful to the fans is I just view his motives differently. I might be cynical, but believe it was just away of turninhg things around on the fans, shifting the blame so to speak if we failed.

              I might be wrong and I hope I am but I just do not trust Arsene any more.
              Also I think the pressure from fan unrest has forced Wenger to raise his game.

              It was disrespectful when the decision was made before the AGM not to except questions from the floor. People at Arsenal need to be accountable regardless of which position they hold.

              Anyway what a great result today!

    • Martin

      October 28, 2011 at 1:11 am

      Wenger was disrespectful to the fans by saying that if we do not unite then we have no chance, shifting the blame again. Everyone was united last season but we failed, who’s to blame for that?

      • Stuart

        October 28, 2011 at 8:14 am

        Martin, the fans were not united last season. I stopped going to games due to the embarassment I felt with all the boo boys in the ground. They made me ashamed to be associated with them.

        • Martin

          October 29, 2011 at 10:06 am

          I’m sure any booing would have only started aftre our colappse, don’t tell me people were booing once we reached the league cup final and beat Barca at home.

          There were signs last season though:

          Newcastle Away
          Spurs at Home
          Orient Away
          Spurs Away
          Stoke Away
          Fulham Away
          Barca Away
          Ipswich Away
          Birmingham at Home

          Either Wenger is a top manager or not, results suggest not.

      Heartily agree with your comment there Ross.

      Unfortunately, Arsenal and Wenger seem to be bearing the brunt of the media’s manipulated and sensationalistic stories nowadays.

      One look at the league table and you’ll see that Manchester United are just one point above the likes of Chelsea and Newcastle but if you’ve read what the media had to say about those teams till last week, you would never’ve imagined it!

      I wonder when we shall see fair, objective and well researched articles again? Till then, I’m sticking to a handful of blogs I trust.

    who the hell are these two bitter clowns??
    “the games changed” what a tired old cliche! Football can’t sustain on the way it’s going, hence the FPP rules being brought in. These two are like a couple of kids with no clue about the future of the game and no understanding about what Arsene represents to the world of football. I don’t want Arsenal to be like every other team, not that they could if they wanted to, how much is in the tpa? 50 mil? 60 mil? that is one Torres or Hazard or sneijder, and remember it includes wages! I believe the youth coming through at the moment is the best in the prem, the problem is that people want everything now. Obviously we need to turn the season around and i believe that is happening. I think we will finish the season stronger and stronger as opposed to are normal collapse at th end, I have a really good really about the next 3 or 4 years at arsenal. Down with idiots like the two who made the video

    • Martin

      October 28, 2011 at 12:26 am

      You sound more bitter than those guys. Goon, the fact that you show no respect for the two guys on the talk sport video shows you are the idiot.
      Those guys have probably been supporting Arsenal for more than 80 years between them. You on the other hand support Arsene.
      Respectable guys like those will still be supporting Arsenal long after Wenger has gone.

    Firstly, Wenger was not taking questions during the meeting so I am confused as to how he “dodged questions ‘like a politician’”. Secondly, most people who were there have said Wenger’s speech was the highlight of the AGM and that it was Peter Hill-Wood who disappointed them with question dodging.

        The questions were submitted prior to the AGM, then they hand picked the ones they wanted to answer. Get it. Plus they did dodge questions by not opening up the floor.
        To scared and to shallow.

    Some people support Arsenal, some people support Arsene. The people that support Arsenal will always be here.

    Liverpool did not support their manager until he was replaced by Dalglish.

    Over the past seasons we have continued to sell our best players to our rivals and then ‘replace’ them with inferior ones while paying the highest ticket prices.

    It is very naive to believe that another manager could not do a better job.

    And I do care who those guys are.

    • acherco

      October 28, 2011 at 7:32 am

      another manager? please name the manager you think should replace arsene. we cant compete with the likes of manu, city, chel, and even liverpool financially.
      Do you rememember leeds?. You cant earn 13 million and spend 20. No manager will come to arsenal and stick to arsene’s spending policy. its just wont work. so please name the manager you think will do a better job with the financial package that arsene has to do with.

      • Martin

        October 28, 2011 at 7:23 pm

        1. Carlo Ancelotti
        2. We are nothing like Leeds and have a far bigger revenue and a world wide fan base.
        3. We did not even spend all of our transfer buget and in fact increased it’s size with the sales of cesc and Nasri.
        4. Pretty much any manager in the world would want to manage Arsenal.
        5. I do not want the new manager to stick to Arsene’s bargin bucket transfer policy.
        6. Stan Kronke is at Arsenal to make money.
        7. Alisher Usmanov would invest in the team to bring success.

      October 28, 2011 at 10:57 am

      what, if i may ask, is your definition of “our best players”? As far as i am concerned our best players are those that love this club and are willing to stick with the club and burst their guts fighting for the cause. This does not include mercenaries or home sick men. No matter their skills or abilities on the pitch if their hearts are not with Arsenal they should buzz off. Arsene has done a good job at cleaning out the stable and we are starting to see the players that possess Arsenal DNA come thru.

      • Martin

        October 28, 2011 at 8:39 pm

        Cleaning out the stables? we cant get rid of most of the manure because they are over paid average players. It’s only the players with super super quality that we sell.
        Arsenal DNA? Yes and look how we treated cole!
        And do you believe if city come in with a £50m bid and offer £200k a week to Jack we will stay? DNA my ARSEnal.

    the anti-Wenger brigade having a laugh again. seriously folks…people who go on with drivel like: “Over the past seasons we have continued to sell our best players to our rivals and then ‘replace’ them with inferior ones while paying the highest ticket prices.” have seriously lost the plot.

    there’s no point in even arguing with this stance as it is severely devoid of economical or moral knowledge….what’s more is that this stance doesn’t even pretend to have a scintilla of an idea as to what or why our transfer policy is what it is.

      October 28, 2011 at 1:33 am

      oh so you are happy to see the likes of cesc and Nasri leave, well if Wilshere is next will you feel the same. No point in arguing because you do not have a point.

        @Martin.. It will be cool if you contact the Abu Dhabi group to take over Arsenal so we can get the players running through your head.. You better reason well that changing Arsene now will be a disaster to the club and if you were a football manager can you do what he has done for the club? Always reason well before running your mouth

        • Martin

          October 28, 2011 at 8:48 pm

          We do not need adu dhabi group, we have two billionaires at the club, wht wants to make money and one whats to invest in the team and be successful.
          Anyway it’s not about spending billions, we have money but wenger wont spend it.
          Typical, another person who can not have a difference of opinion without trying to insult someone, it adds nothing to your argument, in fact it just shows you have no other worthwhile points!

      • Stuart

        October 28, 2011 at 8:28 am

        Martin,
        Cesc and Nasri would have been sold if Wenger was the manager or not. It was the boards decision to push the deals through, without the sales we would have shown a loss on the books for the year, this is the boards priority. Wenger also does not set the ticket prices, this again is done by the board.

        If you think selling the most successful manager this club has ever had will change that you are living in cloud cuckoo land!!! I feel until the club is debt free (which is happening faster than initially planned due to the extreme prudence we see by the club) we will have to make do with top 4.

        • Stuart

          Cloud cuckoo land? Can’t you guys post without some kind of stupid insult. You are in cloud cuckoo land if you believe another manager couldn’t do a better job.
          Jose mourinho could walk in tomorrow ( I know he wont before you start) and get more out of this team with better motivation and tactics.

          Make do with top four? we will be lucky to do that this season.

          Why is it then that our ticket prices do not reflect our position or standing in the league?

          If wenger wasn’t so stubbon we could have could have picked up the odd title in the last 6 years.

          We could have bought Yaya and David Silva before the City money came along, but No, wenger whats to show how clever he can be by buying players nobody has heard of.

        Don’t you think the excess negativity and name calling like “inferior and light weight” directed towards the squad by a section of the fans is contributing to players leaving. They won’t feel appreciated if this continues and would jump ship at the slightest opportunity. Loyalty is a two way thing that is required both fans and players. Let us criticise contructively.

          Good response.. Whether we like it or not we have to do with what we have.. We are not as rich as the Manchester club. You can see what they did the Man Utd.. Are the reds not good enough. No one ever think that would happen.. We can’t compete with them in the transfer market. Talking about getting expensive players wouldn’t help as well because I can see how useless Carol and Torres can be despite they both transfers been at 80 million. The only choice we have here is to get behind the club and give the support they need.. We can see them on the field how they play and push on to the end of the match.. Why can’t we fans do that as well? No one like losing and so are the players.. They want a trophy as much as we want them.. We have the same goal and our support is what they need. I think getting behind the team is the best now and also won’t be surprise if we don’t see Hazard at Arsenal with the likes of Man City and Real Madrid interested because we don’t have the cash power they have.. Keep it Goonerish.. I am a Gooner for life

            Thing is this has been going on before all the city cash came along, the one and only arguement most see to have.

            Like I said before we could have bought Yaya, Silva or Alonso but no wenger knows best, yeah right. All of those players could have been bought but wenger wants to be clever.

        • Martin

          October 28, 2011 at 9:17 pm

          Don’t you think that being surronded by world class players would stop players wanting to jump ship?

          Our players are infererior, thats why we lost 8-2 to united

      Are you a spurs fan?

      Every spurs fan would have been laughthing their heads of after the 8-2 result, me I wanted wenger sacked.

      Your happy with our results, performances, purchases, lack of mental strength, inferior purchases compared to those sold, a six year youth quest that failed, an unquestioned and deluded manager well you must be the spurs fan, because they are loving it!

    Without the very rich owners where would manchester city be today? can Arsenal afford to pay Van and Jack $250,000 per week? These rich club owners wont be around for ever. The teams with a foundation will survive. It makes no sense hanging to a player who doesnt want to play for you.

    Have nothing to say about that article that has not being said,but I want to say that whoever you are Martin,its obvious you have a biased mind,and I guess from your statements you are one of those disrespctful and idiotic fans.I know,you will have one or two words to say to me,go ahead,makes no difference,your words are as meaningless as a small stone in an ocean.
    We will stand behind our team,come what’ may’.And I trust wenger to do his best.

    I am writing a book on the EPL and the model club I chose is Arsenal. This reaction here is what triggers me. You have a great club and yet you don’t know. You have a great team and yet you don’t know. You have a great manager and yet you still don’t know. How many matches did multimillion Chelsea lose last season and ended 2nd. Arsenal is on the right track for the first time in 6years. They start from the top, become comfortable and end 2nd or third. Now they start from the bottom, they are hungry, we are hungry, we are not going to stay comfortable. This is the difference.

    Who is a world class player? What makes a player world class? Who were they before they came to the club? The same club that made them world players have other players waiting to be made world class. Players come and go, so will rich owners come and go. At the end it is only Arsenal that will be standing. Before I forget, Manchester has a debt over £550 million and they still buy players using their credit cards. WOW! You don’t know what you have until you lose it

      I wish you much success with your book. Clearly someone who understand both football and reality which gives him two advantages over the average Arsenal whiner.

        October 28, 2011 at 11:32 pm

        enjoy supporting PSG when wenger leaves. Atleast then we will be left with Arsenal fans

    • Martin

      October 28, 2011 at 11:30 pm

      It does not matter that man united’s debt is over £550m because they have an income to sustain it, an income generated by success.

      You can also see our attendances falling due to poor performances and results and if that was to continue our commercial revenue would fall to. We are already in a fight for 4th spot, if we do not make the champions league our revenue will fall more. Que the sales of RVP and Jack our last big ‘assets’.
      I do not want this to happen but some would blindly.

      I doubt wenger would have bought Per Mertesacker if it wasn’t for the pressure he was under due to unrest amongst true Arsenal fans

    We have won 6 in 7 and the whiners won’t go away. You just love to moan like a teenager. Time to grow up and get over this fascination with negativity or take it to another club because we’re getting sick of it at Arsenal. Support your team FFS.

    • Martin

      October 28, 2011 at 9:31 pm

      Boring, another post by someone that has no point other than to try and put someone down.

      Nearly all the opponents of those games were poor and we only just managed to beat those.

      What about the 20 before that.

    Of course AW doesn’t care about the fans. Why should he? He has been bluffing and tricking his way around for six years and counting! His job is safe, no need to win anything or be stressed in any way. His bosses are apparently happy ( impotent people do not have much to worry about, you know ). So, dear Arsenal supporters, my honest sympathy is with you.

    • Denise

      October 28, 2011 at 9:43 am

      Hi John.. Clear the debt and we will get players we need or go support Manchester City

      • Martin

        October 28, 2011 at 9:33 pm

        Denise, some people support Arsenal not Arsene FC.

        There was money left in the transfer budget, wenger just did not spend it……and then we got beat 8-2, you must be proud

    rubbish article. no disrespect shown by wenger. some so called fans have no clue of what being a supporter means.

    • Martin

      October 29, 2011 at 12:25 am

      Those so called fans have invested money in the club, thats why they were at the AGM. What do you do?

      Support comes in many forms, if you saw your best friend making a huge mistake in his life would you just let him do it and support him or help him by letting him know and then support him.

      If the only arguement you have is to question people who put their money and time in to Arsenal, then it is a very poor one.

      Que the second arguement, insults.

      Funny stuff

    Mr. Senator, i think you need your brain checked if you think sacking wenger will end all the problems. I wonder how well you have been able to manage your life and yet you think you have an idea of how a club should be run. May be you shoul go and surport mancity or you get a life.

    • Martin

      October 28, 2011 at 9:47 pm

      Oh so you do admit there are problems then? Is lord wenger responsible for any of them?

      Oh and another post trying to insult someone, maybe you should have a brain check to find out if you have any substance or reason.

    I know martin is a le grove reader! hence the only argument they have is you are an arsene not arsenal fan, haha pathetic really. The comments section on this shows what the majority of ARSENAL fans think. In wenger I trust, in martin we rust

    • Martin

      October 28, 2011 at 9:59 pm

      I know goon is mental and said he wanted to hurt someone because he was so angry.

      If you read the post’s you will see that i do have an argument, whether or not you agree. But the majority of responses have no argument just bile, like yourself.

      Similarly every wenger lover says go and support city.

      Majority? Le Grove regularly gets between 500 – 1000 post’s a day and all there is a mixed bag the Majority on there are Arsenal supporters not Arsene supporters.
