This article is about AFTV. In contrast to AFTV, Untold Arsenal has its own occasional set of videos. If you would like to see how we do it, do take a peek at Untold GoonerNews
This article has raised a number of questions about freedom of speech and as a result a further piece has been published: Freedom of speech vs the need to support the team which you may also enjoy.
Clearly our opposition to AFTV is having an impact on them – there is a six minute piece against what the owner calls “Negative Energy”, and the rubbish of “painting walls”. He tells us to enjoy our Christmas… and ends up over and over asking “What is wrong with these people,” a question we might ask of those involved with AFTV if it weren’t for the fact that it is all too painfully obvious.
So this is a long rant about intimidation from the most intimidating, nasty, negative intimidating set of videos of all time.
Now I would never normally give any link to AFTV but really this is so extraordinarily bizarre that it really needs to be watched just to be able to see what we are dealing with here.
The main thing to say is that this piece is that by outing AFTV for its negativity we are getting rants like this – which certainly shows to me we are having an effect.
If, by any chance you agree with me that the rampant negativity on AFTV is bad for the morale of the players, bad for the performance of the players, negative when it comes to the recruitment of players, and completely against the whole concept of supporting the team, then do pass this video on to others.
As my correspondent in Europe who alerted me to this video pointed out to me – you don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
AFTV is utterly indefensible. No one needs to be physical in any attack on it – all we need to do is to give to AFTV what AFTV gives to Arsenal players. Remember, we are the “thugs” he wants to get out of football!!!!
