Arsenal’s loyal away following have continued where they left off pre-pandemic. Letting the toxic AFTV know they are not welcome in away ends.
Following the victory against WBA, the chants were loud and clear.
“ARSENAL FAN TV, GET OUT OF OUR CLUB”.
The AFTV business model is simple.
Over the the top reactionary opinions, spread negative, to gain hits, clicks and therefore revenue from viewing non-Arsenal fans.
So it was no surprise that there response to being humiliated live on Sky was to attack Arsenal’s away following in the hope of turning their followers against those fans that actually go to games.
Now this is completely incorrect.
You only need to read through the quote tweets from those who were at the game to see that Arsenal fans were singing about Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe.
Robbie himself was actually at the game (although he is no longer seen on concourses – does he hide in the toilet until the final whistle before ducking outside to interview weirdos?) so would have known this tweet was not true. So why was it posted?
Probably because they pay a company to do their social media. People who do not have a clue about Arsenal, do not go to games, and get their information from other faceless Twitter accounts.
It was an attempt to get other fans, sitting behind their lap tops on dodgy streams, to turn against the Arsenal away following.
AFTV have found their viewing numbers tumbling since the departure or passing of some of their highest profile “contributors”. This has lead to them putting out any more controversial, divisive content in an attempt to regain those losses.
It is no longer the profit making giant that it was 4 years ago. With dwindling figures comes less advertising revenue. Less sponsors.
This is not the first time Robbie et al have lied about Arsenal’s away following. Previously he tried to claim fans were racially abusing him. A claim which fell on deaf ears.
It is clear he will say or do anything to earn a few quid at the expense of Arsenal. And that is why so many are against the boyhood Luton fan.
It is being made clear to them they are no longer wanted in away ends. And it is only a matter of time until they are run out of Arsenal completely.
