Show Some Respect!

Show Some Respect!

I couldn't disagree with D4NNYT more!

I moan and complain about things when they go against us 10X more than Arsene, and I think he has every right to complain because usually when he moans he's in the right. It's not just Wenger that moans either; Jol, Fergie, Maureen, Rafa, Hughes...just about every manager in the league moans if a decision doesn't go their way.

Again, I would have done the same thing as Wenger in every one of those incidents. The 'fight' with Pardew was because he was right in Wenger's face when he was celebrating a late winner; Wenger's reaction was a combination of passion and frustration.

He didn't deserve to be sent to the stands against Pompey so that's a non-starter.

And as for calling the linesman a liar, he was also right! You show me the footage of Adebayor trying to punch Fat Frank. You can't because there isn't any video because it didn't happen!

I agree, Wenger is a bad loser but that's a good thing because it means he's a winner. I love Wenger`s philosophy on life. He says that you should never be happy with what you've achieved, always strive to improve yourself and achieve more.

As for rival fans calling him a disgrace, that means nothing. If I say that Jol is thin does it make it true? No. The same fans also call us a 'Muslim club' and 'a refugee camp.' Are those things true? No.

I'm not one for blind loyalty but when you start to think your own manager is a disgrace I think you really need to start questioning your loyalty to the club!

I don't think Wenger has a problem with authority, he has a problem with losing (which I'm delighted about, I can't stand people who have no problem with losing).

Wenger has been the way he is for years and I wouldn't change him for the world. How often do you see Arsenal have a brawl?

you've totally mis-interpreted everything i've just said...... these are thoughts coming from everyone else in the land and I have to sit through it everyday..... surely, you'd like to have people coming up to you and pay positive remarks and comments about us, how good our football is, how our future looks exciting...... but they dont and its *****ing me off

I couldn't give a flying f*** what anyone else says about our manager D4NNYT. If we were shti nobody would care to be overly critical of him. I can never remember Spurs or Chelsea fans complaining too much about Terry Neill, Don Howe, Bruce Rioch and the like. Martin Jol goes on TV every week and gives pathetic excuses about his team putting in abject displays week in week out. I prefer a sore loser personally.

D4NNYT, people don't generally come up to me and tell me how good looking and intelligent and talented I am, when it is clear for all to see that I excel in all categories. Such is life, the great Michel de Montagne said, "I care not so much what I am to others as I am to myself." The general public are broadly, stupid, uninformed and totally unable to think independently.

LD do you teach philosophy!?! and D4NNYT, stop listening to what everyone else says. As my Mum and Dad used to say "they're just jealous!!!". Every club in the country (except maybe Man USA) would kill to have AW as their manager. We all know that we play incredible football most of the time and all the other teams fans know that too. But competition, by it's very nature, will stop the Spurts, Chel$ki fans et al from telling us that, so they need to berate us in other ways.
