Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong took it upon himself to defend manager Arsene Wenger, as he went to war with Gunners fan Piers Morgan on Twitter.
Journalist Morgan, who’s been an Arsenal fan for 42 years and holds a season ticket at the Emirates, has called for manager Arsene Wenger to be sacked following our recent defeats to AC Milan and Sunderland and has regularly used Twitter to voice his opinions.
“I respect Wenger’s record for us as much as anyone. But he’s run out of ideas, and we’ve run out of trophies. Time for change” was a recent tweet by Morgan, closely followed by “Better Wenger leaves now, while we all still love and respect him, than watch this horrible deterioration get worse and worse”.
While some Arsenal fans may agree with Piers Morgan and believe it’s time for a managerial change, one individual who certainly doesn’t is Frimpong. You can see the twitter exchange that ensued for yourself by going to @Frimpong26AFC and @piersmorgan and look at their timelines, but here’s a basic transcript of their row:
EF: Stop chatting soo much rubbish you. You know nothing about football. You sit behind your laptop and just talk utter rubbish.
PM: Oh really, Mr Frimpong? Well truth hurts, sunshine. And I’m not afraid to tell it. (you can’t even get in THIS Arsenal team)
EF: Just don’t bring your ugly face to the emirates because we at Arsenal are sick and tired of your abuse towards players and coach.
PM: Pipe down Junior, and go to bed. I’ve been following Arsenal for 42 years – twice as long than you’ve been born.
EF: We don’t need your support. You’re better off reading a script, leave the football to people that know about it. Wasteman
PM: Big words, big guy. I suggest you focus on improving your game – rather than abusing loyal fans. Most of whom agree with me. I actually like
@Frimpong26AFC and his passion – but his youthful arrogance and complacency sums up #Arsenal ‘s malaise.
EF: It still amazes me you call yourself a fan? A fan don’t doesn’t do the things you do. The fans are the people that travel thousands of miles every weekend to support their team. Fans are the 60,000 people we have every saturday. Fans don’t turn their back on their team.
So, yes, Piers, you ain’t a fan. You’re just some big old school bully that has too much time on twitter. Now you go bed and wake up early to read.
PM: I’ve followed Arsenal for 42yrs and own 4 season tickets. That entitles me to an opinion. Which is: we need a new manager.
EF: Loyal?? Well in football you have bad and good times. The LOYAL fans are the ones that remember the Good times. And wait for More.
PM: You’re so loyal to Arsenal you went to Wolves. So put a DEEENNCH in it and stop pandering to the blinkered minority.
EF: When was your last game at the emirates? Instead of the Internet. What have you ever done for Arsenal in 42 years? Nothing
PM: I’ve supported them. Nothing more, nothing less. And I want us to be competitive again, not perennial losers
EF: You’re entitled to your opinion. Of course you are, but there are ways of doing it, and telling your 2 million followers rubbish we don’t need ain’t class.”
PM: you started this by abusing a diehard fan who cares about his team. That demeans you Emmanuel, and I thought better of you.
It’s good to see the players sticking up for their manager, but perhaps a public row with a journalist and isn’t the best way to go about things!
Who do you agree with? Is Piers Morgan right, is it time for a new manager? Or do you back Frimpong and think the fans should stick by the manager and team no matter what?
