A total disgrace from the captain of the club. You can be angry about the fans booing you etc, but the most important thing as a professional player, just perform better the next game and try to impress them. Of course, this is not totally his fault, Emery make him club captain despite fans do not like him. Emery keep playing him as a DM when he is really not suitable, especially in the Premier League. To conclude, the captain armband should be stripped no matter what, for a club captain this kind of thing on the pitch to the fans is absolutely intolerable. And most importantly, #Emeryout.
However, i doubt the management have the boldness to take such decision now. We as fans can only see our club declining under the management of Emery.

Scenes like this from the crowd make me ashamed to be an arsenal supporter.

The opposition is supposed to be the target. But at Arsenal? Nope. Our biggest enemy is our own, apparently.

It’s really shit.
It really is.

Not happy that we boo are own players it’s not on really being made a scapegoat because our real underlining problem is Emery.
There are to many players being put out of position we don’t defend as a unit no wonder we leak goals it comes down to defending as a unit. His tactics are not working. We have no creativity in the final 3rd and it’s killing us. Playing out from the back putting ourselves under pressure when we don’t need to.
Not making excuses for khakas actions at all and absolute disgrace it was. But how much can one take he is being given death threats his car being pelted by our own fans disgusting behaviour.

I’ve been a silent reader on this blog for years, and this is the first time I’ve been angered into actually speaking up.

The reactions from last night up to this morning have been appalling, with people calling Arsenal fans who spend upwards of thousands of dollars to go see the team they love, classless and “I don’t want to be associated with them”

ABSOLUTE HUMDUNG!

Arsenal is not the first club to boo a player, and they won’t be the last. Great players like Ronaldo, Benzema, Messi and Neymar have been booed by their fans for much much less. However, these people who can claim to be the best in the world always reacted with class. Got their heads down and played their way back into their supporters’ hearts.

People keep saying Xhaka is human and whatnot. That’s a bullshit excuse. If i failed at my job as spectacularly as he has, I would have long since been fired. My boss wouldn’t give me a hot cocoa and a scone and tell me good job. No. He’d berate the shit out of me.

And for those coining threats on social media as an excuse, that’s equally bullshit! Which public figure doesnt get abuse? Have you seen Ronaldo’s page? How about Obama? Or Trump? Or hell, Local Dj Tim who just opened a new account?

Threats come with social media. It’s part of the package of being a Millionaire social figure in the curent age. If Xhaka was indeed a true captain of the club, he would have tried his best to get back on the fans’ side, rather than telling his true employers to fuck off…

That’s it. Have a nice day, and I hope Emery also has an excellent day and life after he gets sacked.

Sales feeling James. At 2:0 I had a bad feeling. I always have a bad feeling these days. What is so frustrating is the fact that we do have talent, but are not doing anything with it. Players are going backwards…..Auba, Laca, Willock, Torreira, Ceballos…..
You just feel that a better manager would do more. What is his strategy/philosophy, what is his best team? He is screwing up all the positives of the beginning of the season.
We are back to divisiveness and discontent.
