Nasri reminds the boo boys why they should boo

Quite why Nasri regularly feels the need to justify himself I'm not sure. Most Arsenal supporters can get that he left us for a lorry load more money and that he thought Mansour stood a better chance of buying a title than most other PL clubs. Most would even get that he doesn't feel any loyalty to Arsenal football club or London. But none of that makes Gooners stupid for booing him. Particularly as the reasons he gave for why he shouldn't be booed are the very reasons Gooner supporters were booing him !

On the contrary Gooners should be booing the opposition players. Along with cheering their own team that's a pretty helpful contribution to their side's efforts. Give them reason enough to boo and they would be stupid not to take advantage of the incentive. On the eve of the Community Shield game Nasri gave them that much more incentive and they took advantage of it. Whether it affected his performance much if at all nobody could really say but he didn't do much to stop Arsenal taking a 2-0 lead by half time. Either way that's not the point. It gave Gooner support the opportunity to make some noise and to celebrate every error he made. That's what supporters are for. To support their team and to try to unsettle the opposition. To create as hostile an environment for their opponents as they can.

Stupid is giving your opponents that special incentive to be hostile. It was Nasri that fanned that hostility. That seems part of his character to the extent that his announcement to retire from international football seems to be more a consequence of the hostility he has created towards himself in the French camp as a decision to concentrate on club football. How much choice did he have other than to 'retire' might be an unkind reflection but understandable too.

Now whenever he comes up against Arsenal he has ensured he'll get plenty of flak. He may claim it doesn't affect him and if he has a good game he'll even claim it encourages him I'm sure. But the more important point is that it affects the Gooner support - and that has to be good. It's not stupid to boo you Samir. It's none too wise of you to make it an obligation to do so though.

I absolutely loved the crowd for booing the chinless *****. Other ex Gooners have earned our respect and we don't begrudge them a move elsewhere, well except him and Adebayor perhaps. When they were both Gooners they followed the money at Man City & because we were cash-strapped they thought the grass was greener. Sure he won a trophy, but hey it's not like a club with history behind it! Same could be said of Cashley Cole. Went to a club with no history & plenty of cash & won a bucket load of titles with les blues. (But it's only recent history as they won bugger all since there inception in 1905). Arsenal fans take to heart the players that have tried and played their best for the club and don't usually boo ex players it's only the circumstances in which they left that dictate our chagrin.

He really should just not do media ever. Not content with turning his entire country against him he now goes and spouts off about a club he left what 3 years ago? who cares about this inconsequential little puta? Not us, sure some will boo for something to do but even that was half hearted until he went and stirred it up again and even then he's so meh it's hard to give a ----. Enjoy the jet home petit prat.

I would say he was rather ill advised with his recent rant in the media. To be rejected by France alone speaks volumes about his personality. It was clear to all that he left for the money, so man up Samir and admit it. Henry left us too and he's always welcome at Ashburton Grove. Other notable greats have left as well. Why Nasri has to call us fans stupid is downright childish. Tis part of the game, take it on the chin and play your football. Spoiled Brat.

Nasri is a one-manned idiot. Constantly moaning about how Arsenal fans need to "let it go" when the only reason we give him ***** is because he never shuts up about him. We genuinely don't give any other player that much grief because they've learned to shut the *** up!

Vermaelen is a case in point of how to leave a club with good grace, class & dignity. Na$ti just has none of those qualities. A very weak individual. But yeah Samir keep telling yourself it's us not you, I mean you only have to look at the hostile reception we gave Clichy to see how....oh.
