I was there with 40,000 odd Arsenal fans there yesterday. I’m always there.
When the fixtures come out I don’t pick and choose. What I do, like many others is plan my whole life around following us around the country.
But, this week, for the first time ever I’m choosing not to go on Thursday. Not because I expect us to lose, but because you no longer deserve my support.
Did you see 20,000 fans leave with 20 minutes to go? Up until a few weeks ago I would have been very critical of that. Now, I completely understand it. That’s the apathy I keep talking about. That’s your bread and butter making a stand and protesting. They may not all march, they may not all sing Wenger or board out or hold banners, but even worse, they don’t give a shit anymore.
I didn’t expect a win. We are very average at best and city and very good. What I did expect was to see 11 men wearing our shirt with pride. Sticking their foot in, winning the ball back, defending like trojans because it mattered. But actually I don’t see a winning mentality from anyone on the pay roll in the club. I see a manager who sits down and watches the horror unfolding in silence. I see professional footballers earning a lot of money and who have had the best training since the age of 10 making school boy errors. I see an assistant manager chewing gum and clock watching because he wants to get home.
In football you win some and lose some. Cup finals there are no favourites, there are those who want it enough to fight for it. Battlers win cup finals, bottlers win nothing.
I’ve seen us lose finals before, but I’ve never seen us lose one in that manner. We will be fed with the ‘played with the handbrake on’ ‘we were a little slow off the blocks’ crap. Do any of you ask Wenger when the handbrake is going to be turned off once and for all? Do you ever question him or hold him to account.
Gazidis told us he expected a ‘sustained title challenge this year’. That was the brief given to the manager at the beginning of the season. The challenge never started. Maybe someone forgot to take the handbrake off.
You and your manager will gloss over the result, like you always do. But you cannot gloss over the fact that many of us no longer care.

I stayed until the final whistle because I wanted to be there to sing Wenger Out. Few of us did, most didn’t. Most won’t turn up to protest about him, but that’s the least of your worries now, as the big travesty in all of this is your fans have stopped caring, even to protest.
You don’t have the balls to sack him because you’ve made him more important than us. You believe the hype, you are more stuck than we are looking back on the great days.
I blame Wenger 100%, but I despise your ineptness to do your job.
You are custodians of OUR club, you are failing in your duty. None of you have put a penny into the club, buying shares makes you rich later down the line and that’s it. You sacrifice nothing, you’ve probably never even paid to watch a football match.
Do your job, sack him today.
