The silly season is over, time to get behind the team
Well another silly season has passed and hopefully it takes along with it all the agendas, rubbish rumours, silly childishness, entitled demanding, drivel opinions and outright idiotic outbursts. Finally the summer transfer window is shut and thankfully so because it was just getting ridiculous.
So what did the silly season bring about to Arsenal this time? We brought in five players in the form of Calum Chambers, David Ospina, Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy and Danny Welbeck to add depth and replace the departures; and good business overall in my humble opinion.
I still think we are bit too short of numbers at the back but the window is now closed and the business we did is all what could do contrary to what the moaners will say. I refuse to believe that Arsene didn’t want to sign another CB but as we all know transfers are complicated and need agreement between three parties so maybe that could not have been reached in time.
Now if you didn’t know already from all the media reporting and twitter activity, we have had deadline day and as usual it was full of drama with money being thrown all over the place with clubs rushing to sign that one player or bunch of players they think will be the last pieces of their puzzles. In summary, just a day full of madness.
The Arsenal fans not wanting to be left behind took over twitter to express and debate their opinions on who and who we should sign and should not sign and truth be told it was told it was not pretty. It’s truly amazing how needy and self-entitled some of our fans are and the shit that was being spewed yesterday was just plain disgusting. The behavior of some was just despicable with abusing the club, abusing Yaya, throwing childish tantrums, silly outbursts and of course their personal favourite i.e. throwing vile abuse to the manager being the order of the day.
Have to say one and perhaps the only advantage of deadline day on twitter is that it really helps you to see who among of the people you follow are absolute mindless raving idiots and who are sensible enough to keep following. Deadline day kept me busy as I had to clean up my timeline from words such as dithering, rip off, lack of ambition and of course hashtag Wenger Out among many others. The number of people I have unfollowed, muted and blocked grew big yesterday. I just refuse to put up with idiots anymore.
I really do wonder why these “fans” even bother supporting the Arsenal. I mean wouldn’t it be easier to just support another team instead of wasting your time on a club that in your opinion is doing nothing right? The club can do no right in these fans eyes and it’s always glass half empty and not half full to them. Sign five quality players in the market? Not enough. Sign a striker? Not good enough I want a Falcao or a Cavani. Where is my shiny new centre back? Boohoo I want my monster defensive midfielder, and all that kind of self-entitlement rubbish. No need to go on as I am sure you get my point
The whole concept of support seemed to be lost among many of our “fans”. Supporting is neither about slating the club on each and everything it does nor endlessly moaning for no reason whatsoever. It is not about throwing childish tantrums at any given opportunity, neither is it about silly outbursts nor is it about self-entitled demanding. Supporting a club is not about abusing the board, the chairman, the owner and the CEO just because they don’t give you the importance you want but do not deserve as let’s face you are a nobody. Supporting a club is definitely not about lashing out and throwing vile abuse to a manager just because he didn’t give into your whims and take your saintly advice. No it’s not about all of that no matter what some people might tell you
Supporting a club means not only to enjoy the good times but also being patient about the bad times. It`s about being there for your club no matter how dark the times may seem. It is about giving your players a lift by cheering them on when they are down, it’s about shouting your lungs out for your team when they play and enjoying the rollercoaster ride no matter where it takes you. It is about always having a positive outlook on the club and believing any hard times are just a passing thing.
Don’t get me wrong as I am not saying one should never criticize the club. Criticism is good as long as it is constructive criticism and not mindless abuse clothed as criticism. I repeat again, abusing the manager, players, CEO and board is not criticism; it’s just being a miserable twat.
The silly season is over and now it’s time to get behind the team. This is our team and these are our players and they need all of our support no matter what you think the club should have done, signed and should have not signed. Moaning now and throwing all toys out of the pram won’t give you anything. So let’s all get behind what we have, cheer them on and shout our lungs out to show our support and do our best to create a better, nontoxic atmosphere at the Emirates stadium.
Up The Arsenal
