You are a WUM. You came on the Manchester United section demanding we come on the West Ham section in order to congratulate your side for drawing at OT. Yet you stay hush when Manchester United knocked West Ham out of the FA Cup. You only come about in order to stir up a hornet’s nest.May 2, 2016 at 9:50 pm #993276
CM. You are wrong and just trying to mix the pudding. I made no such demands. It’s utter bollocks. I merely noted the fact that none of the numerous comments on the thread contained any form of acknowledgment whatsoever of the performance of the opposition. It was a valid point. Try reading it again.May 2, 2016 at 10:04 pm #993360
Sorry Erik, but that thread stuck in my mind too. Terrible troll, over the whole site it seems, no idea why you are trying to deny it.May 2, 2016 at 10:21 pm #993444
Erik- Yet you was the only one asking for such demands on a opposition your say section. You not acknowledging Manchester United knocking your lot out of the FA Cup, after coming on the United section demanding we praise West Ham getting a draw at OT proves my point about you as well.May 3, 2016 at 8:41 am #994050
Alfie. I’m flattered my post stuck in your mind but it was only an honest observation and no demands provocative or otherwise were made as implied by CM. I just made an honest point and people are free to interpret it any way they wish, but to label me as a trolling wind-up merchant is complete bollocks.
CM. The fact that I did not come onto your site to acknowledge your cup repay victory is irrelevant. For the record, I didn’t come on to comment or moan about your extremely good fortune in the first game either. I must admit though, I did also come onto your page a while back to voice my opinion of your manager’s extraordinary passiveness on the bench and described him as Dr Death. At the time it seemed appropriate because I noticed he just sat there stoney-faced and wide-eyed, and his arse never left the bench for the entire 90 minutes. Mind you, I did notice that most of you lot were heavily criticizing and insulting him for everything else under the sun left right and center. The funny thing is, I came on this page to voice a simple honest opinion in support of Arsne Wenger and got a lots of flak for it. How ironic is that!
The real issue here is this: Football fans in general are naturally territorial and protective of their own club. They can easily get oversensitive and defensive when a fan from another club pops in to make a valid point. If a simple sentence is not phrased properly it can easily provoke all kinds of adverse knee-jerk reaction, abuse and even wild unsubstantiated accusations. And that is precisely what has happened here. But never mind, I can take it. That’s cricket.
Look forward to welcoming you to our final game at Upton Park.

Eric, you wrote in an earlier post: “but to repeat it with 12 minutes to go when you are winning against an impressive workmanlike Norwich team fighting for their lives, was not only out of order, it was downright embarrassing!”
Arsenal fans were protesting due to years of mismanagement and not the way they were performing against Norwich. So by your accounts, if Arsenal were winning then it was disrespectful to protest because everything was okay and they should only protest when they’re drawing or losing?May 3, 2016 at 1:40 pm #994773

I can’t believe that because only a few hundred fans starting singing only one Arsenal wenger means the majority back him. I’m a season ticket holder I chose not to go as my stand against wenger. The sheer number of empty seats clearly showed the lack of support for him. When the protest were goi g on most fans were watching the game, neither in supporting wenger nor anti wenger. Alot of the fans in the stadium would have been one time goers because the vast majority if season ticket holders either put their tickets up for sale of just chose not to go.
You stop and speak to the fans outside the stadium or in the pubs after the game will say they want a change and want rid.May 3, 2016 at 6:50 pm #995343
Erik the Dik- get off our site and bore someone else. We don’t want or need your sort on here. This is an Arsenal site and if you want to engage every teams’ supporters go on the main page. You obviously have a wide vocabulary as you use the word “bollocks” in every post. Now exit, or we’ll get our monitor onto pests like you.May 3, 2016 at 7:08 pm #995382

C’mon guys, just stop giving Erik the oxygen and he’ll go

T. I know why that small minority of fans protested, but I really do think that the second demonstration was totally unnecessary and embarrassing, especially given the circumstances. Let’s be honest, the fact that Arsenal were one up at the time did not help their cause. It went off like a damp squib! Your last sentence is putting words into my mouth, but yes of course it reasonable to assume that a few others would have held up a piece of A4 had Arsenal not been in front at the time.
Hulk. Whatever the precise demography and allegiance of the supporters that were in the stadium no one knows. The only fact is this: The capacity of the Emerates is 60,432. The crowd for the Norwich game was 59,989. That means there was a total of 443 empty seats. You can make of that what you will.
Jeff. Thanks for your latest insult. It only serves to substantiate my point in paragraph three of my previous post. Incidentally Jeff, I notice you spell your name with two F’s. Coincidentally there’s also two L’s in bollocks. Funny that.

What you’re saying is ridiculous and makes no sense at all – That you only protest if you’re losing. Fans were protesting because they’ve had enough of paying high ticket prices and putting up with mismanagement for the past 10+ years. The fans weren’t protesting about this one game. Sorry but to me the point you are making here is unnecessary and embarrassing.May 4, 2016 at 4:37 am #995712
Al, no more back and forth, just wanted to make my point.
I wouldn’t go on another teams page and start a thread to stir the pot.May 4, 2016 at 7:03 am #995733
T. Sorry mate, but I fail to see what you are getting at. Those few fans who unnecessarily repeated their protest got their timing hopelessly wrong and their second protest fell flatter than a Donald Trump rally in Kazakhstan. As the Hulk rightly mentioned, the majority of fans, i.e. the remaining 59,500+, were too busy watching the game and hoping for a win. That’s a fact. If fans have a gripe and they want to protest about something then fine, but they should at least think it through and plan accordingly if they want to make any kind of significant impact at all, otherwise it’s simply bollocks and bound to turn out tits-up. Which it did.
Al. Nice to see you. What a breath of fresh air!
Be lucky, Erik.May 4, 2016 at 8:25 am #995835

T, I get it mate – it’s easy to believe that he might actually listen to people who know just a little bit more about AFC than he does and anyone genuine would do, but he’s not after discussion.
I fell into the same trap when he first posted on here, but he was outed very quickly by posters from other forums more used to his nonsense. Any response to Erik is simply feeding him.
