Let me begin by saying we have a steward on this blog and I knew plenty at the old ground that were decent blokes with common sense. Same with the security guys.
So please don’t call me anti steward, I know you have a job to do, all I’m saying is do it properly and use your common sense.
I will also say I know a few good ‘uns at the Grove as well, but most of them are clueless, it seems to me Arsenal recruited them from either the London underground, the Traffic wardens society or from the dole queues.
Why you may ask am I so angry with these people? Well, FIFA segregate fans for a reason, as do most of the leagues around the world, football fans are tribal and don’t like fans from teams they are playing against sitting next to them, especially if the other team scores and they start taunting.
I heard yesterday numerous people complaining about Liverpool fans in club level shouting abuse at the fans below them, in fact Pedro said he saw a whole bunch of them in our section screaming abuse at fans around us and they had Liverpool shirts on as well.
People were asking the stewards to kick them out and they refused to, it was only when the Scousers abused the stewards that they got thrown out, how delightful for the poor sods sitting next to them.
When we joined Club level, we were told only Arsenal colours may be worn and colours of the opposing teams were strictly forbidden, so why were these morons allowed in and why were they not ejected when they began abusing Arsenal fans.
One day someone will be seriously hurt for all this political correctness and what will Arsenal say then? Oops!
Last season there was trouble between warring Greek and Turkish gooners waving their own national flags at each other, Arsenal’s reaction? To ban all flags, even our own, madness, absolute madness, what they should have done was to say only Arsenal flags are allowed or English/British flags, but Arsenal for some strange reason don’t want to offend the minority but don’t mind screwing their own, odd.
I went to the pre season Emirates cup and above me were two flags, one said Libya in white out of green and the other one was an Irish tricoler, I asked for them to be taken down and the stewards asked me to leave the ground, work that one out.
I would like to hear from either Arsenal’s policy makers or some stewards, on why they are allowing supporters from other teams into our section causing problems for the people that are funding this club? Please try and justify this hypocrisy.
Will they wait until someone gets hurt before they act? and then blame the hard working Arsenal fan?
Mr Edelman, we are an English club in Great Britain and we are Arsenal fans so give us our flags back please, you like them at Cup finals don’t you? The Kop are famous for them, and you know the Kop don’t you, you let most of them into club level on Wednesday.
If you try and tell me they were given to Liverpool fans by club level members, then kick those club level members out, and then explain why they were allowed in wearing Liverpool shirts.
I eagerly await your response, as do we all at Le Grove.
As its Friday, I thought I’d leave you with a poem. One of the Bloggers left it for me yesterday and to be honest… it was just to good not to share with you all.
