I said this on October 15th:
I can see from this thread that 3 people who I have on ignore are causing a back and forth that frankly doesn’t make any sense. It’ll play out as it always does.
I can’t imagine being a fan of a club and having to caveat any and all progress because you have a dislike for someone involved. But frankly it’s expected. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I understand why our fanbase has the reputation it does - we truly are one of if not the worst collection of fans going. I love Arsenal to death and have done since my first game at Highbury at 10 years old, but I maintain - I don’t like Arsenal fans. Something about our low period has bred in many of us a weakness and a victim mentality that we can’t shake. The club and the current squad has shaken off the brittle “can’t handle a rainy day in Stoke” tag, but as a fanbase we haven’t. We’re whiners, complainers, bitter and annoying. The only thing we’re good for is to help clicks and engagement for social media and digital platforms, which is why official accounts for things like the CL or Prem post us a lot (good and bad) because they know if anybody is gonna take the bait, whether that’s flood the post with likes or flood the post with replies, it’s Arsenal fans.
That image of Wenger at Old Trafford standing on the dugout with his arms out like “where do you want me to go?! What do you want me to do?!” should be the header on this forum. Because that has become our overall collective personality as a fanbase.
Again. Love the club. Actually really like the regular matchday goers and the older, level headed fans. Outside of that, cannot stand us.
Trust me the feelings mutual. The amount of times I've had to read double standards, covert racism and just pure hatred for players on here, I've been very critical of the fanbase long before you've been on here.
For different reasons though, a lot of you just take criticism of Arteta or your select favourite players to heart and think that's a solid reason to call a fanbase bad. Crying because not everybody agrees.
You guys get upset and bring up Wenger in a negative light without fail too and have the nerve to call yourselves fans. I read these pathetic posts with the same people clapping and saying "yeah well said" and it's all cringe.
For those who don't like differing opinions, just don't log in. This match day tripe as if those who go to the stadium are more qualified to have an opinion needs to get in the bin too.
