Morning Gooners! Plenty of debate raging back and forth about doing the ponzan at the United guard of honour this weekend.
So much chat about class… acting like a small club… Being hypocritical.
You know what everyone forgets? We’re football fans. Not golfers. We love the game because we love the tribalism, the rage, the passion… It’s what makes football worth going to. On the face of it, we should just wish Robin well and applaud what a great job United have done this year.
Hey, why not take it further, why don’t we applaud if United score? Why don’t we not cheer too loud when we score… after all, their fans have feelings to.
Seriously… if you’re in football for the class, you’re in the wrong game. There’s very little class in going to war every week. Would turning our backs on united show we’re a small club? No way, it would show we had some passion. It would show that The Emirates wasn’t a library. It would give our players a boost. It’d hopefully be a visual show of disdain to our board who pride money over winning. It’d be a hilarious statement.
As for the small club nonsense, can I once again refer you to Barcelona post Figo to Madrid pig head statement.
How about the United fans when Wayne Rooney fancied a transfer? Are they a small club?
Or hows about Liverpool fans when Stevie G dared consider Chelsea?
Please,spare me the class nonsense. Don’t play the ‘oh my, I’d be so embarrassed’… because you know what’s most embarrassing about Arsenal fans? The fact we just sit on our hands for ninety minutes and don’t say anything…
That’s what’s made us a laughing stock for years. We can change that on Sunday. We can fire the players up, we can fire the fans up and we can all unite around what a horrible character Robin is for doing that to a club that looked after him… as well as make a point to Ivan Gazidis about his sporting decision to sell to a rival… along with Arsene backing it the whole way.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got time for this morning.
Have a good one, I’ll be back with a new topic tomorrow.
