Yesterday was the AGM where we had the fortune of having some of our very own World of Arsenal representatives attending. One of the major talking points has been Arsene's call for more support and noise from the crowd. Since I can remember, we've always been lambasted for our quietness on match days. Jibes from "The Highbury Library" to "Your Support is F**king S**t" are common place nowadays.
Arsene believes we need to raise up the game and sing and shout as loud as we can. Support the team. I'm a big fan of crowd support. I'm one of the noisiest in my block much to the discern of many around me.
“I believe this team needs a strong guide to go through difficult periods, because at the moment I do not feel that, either from the media or our supporters, this team gets the support that it deserves.”
There have been a few different versions of what Arsene said, another version states he said we’ve been in recession mood, but in all honesty, we are much quieter than the average fan…
“You are all very quiet, a little bit like the game on Saturday. It is a recession mood, but it will not last, do not worry. Instead of showing resentment, we have to believe in our team, more than ever because this team will deliver.
But the younger you are, the more you need support and the belief in the quality of these young players. I ask you as well to be proud of them and to show your support. At the moment I do not feel that either from the media or our supporters that this team gets the support that it deserves.”
Is he wrong? Or does he have a point?]]>
