'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wenger As Annoyed As We Were

With the Gunners starring down the barrel of the gun against Boro on Saturday, the Ashburton faithful opened their vocal chords to try and cheer the boys on to victory.

We Gooners were in fine voice, and with the equaliser in the bag the red & white army pushed for the winner. The volume was awesome, I could almost feel that the winning goal was inevitable. But then, the PA decided to let the 60,000 strong crowd that there was a problem with the tube and delays were a certainty, & to cut down on crowd congestion there were keeping the bars open and showing the Spurs - Man Utd match on the big screens.

Fair do's, a bit of public service, nowt wrong with that.

However, Mr PA took it upon himself to relay the same information another four times, at a deafening volume might I add, thus drowning out the support for the team from the fans and generally getting on everybodies tits.

Well, good old Arsene Wenger, as ever, knows what football is all about and has publically voiced his anger at this slight mark on the PA's copy book.

'I was very annoyed. I think he has to respect people and not talk too much.

'There are people who want to watch a football game without being deflated and I feel it's out of order.

'I don't know if it puts the players off but for people watching it's disturbing.'

As the old saying goes, 'Arsene Knows'.

he definitly does. if i were a player and then we needed a win and rather than hearing my fans cheering in the gasping minutes of the last half. and all i could hear was some man talking about train station then i would not be happy and not motivated at all. not an excuse though it jus could of helped if it wasnt repeated and puting the noise of the crowd down,

There's no doubt that it did NOT have an effect on the outcome, it's just how are we supossed to feel like we are doing our bit with that tool prattling over the top of our singing?

Just don't understand what happened on Saturday. Seems exactly the same as most of last season in that the football's is pretty much being played but there's no end product. Now I'm no doom monger but 2 points from 9 is getting me worried. I'm just hoping that Man USA is gonna give us a game on sunday and actually come out and play rather than just sit back with 11 players. Is Walcott fit? Of the games I've seen so far this season he's the one who's come on and changed things for us. He has to be at least on the bench for wednesday!!!

Now is the time for all good gunner fans to stand behind the team. Doom sayers worrying about the loss of 7 points at this stage of the season should just be quiet and urge the team on. If, sorry when, in the next two games we get max points then this stutter and it is only a stutter will quickly be forgotten. Even blind Freddy can see this team is going places, we have failed by just inches to win. If the ball had not hit the post but had been 5 inches the other side the scores would have been 6/7/8 nil. Come on they need our support, we have been plagued by who is going to go who is staying, and the Media tripe that has been written. The Boss will take us to the top and he has the team to do it. And please please drown the pratt on the who kept rabbiting on about ******* trains. Is he a Spurs supporter???

Don't ever take up the clib's invitation to watch a game in the concourse afterwards. Not only does the TV signal struggle, but they chuck you out at half time. Anyway, LD off to Hamburg tonight, so I'm afraid you'll have to fare without my witty comments or insightful articles. Might I suggest counselling?
Little Dutch
Good old Arsene. Always in tune with the Gooners.
sandgroanun
LD, why don't you extend your stay?
Westl
