Anyway, trying to distance itself from its support for AFTV, the media, rather than admitting that it had been at the forefront of anti-Arsenal negativity over the years has now been developing such lines as, “Such division among supporters is symptomatic of Arsenal’s malaise.”

And if the owner of AFTV thought the national media which has been giving publicity to AFTV since it started might come to its rescue as the anger of the crowd grew, well, no it didn’t happen.   Instead they went out of their way to make sure we all knew that AFTV was run by Robbie Lyle (not just Robbie as he likes to be known).
