Arsenal Fan’s Rallying Plea To ‘Terrible’ Emirates Support

Arsenal Fan’s Rallying Plea To ‘Terrible’ Emirates Support

The Arsenal support has yet again come under criticism from one of its own, after another quiet Sunday afternoon at the Emirates at the weekend.

Loyal fan Arsenal fan, Mohammad Haider, had earlier today released a rallying cry to his fellow supporters via the Mirror newspaper, clearly frustrated at the lack of any atmosphere within the stadium.

I have been frustrated with the poor atmosphere at Emirates Stadium for many months even years now, however that horrible Wednesday evening against Monaco is when to be honest, it finally got too much for me to ignore.

The manager, the players, they all came in for criticism against Monaco, and rightly so. But what about the performance of the fans? We. Were. Terrible.

Olivier Giroud took the brunt of the fans frustration against Monaco, and after trying and failing, trying again and failing again and trying a few more times and failing a few more times, was jeered as he walked off the pitch. At least he tried, most of the fans on Wednesday couldn’t even do that.

Only last season, thousands of Arsenal supporters voiced their support for changes to generate a more vibrant and hostile match-day atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium.

More than 17,000 fans engaged in a survey and more than half of those polled agreed the current atmosphere was ‘poor’.

This is especially significant after enjoying one of the best atmosphere’s in Britain when playing at old stomping ground, Highbury.

Arsene Wenger often makes reference to the atmosphere inside the Emirates and last season he even suggested northern crowds helped there teams more than those in London.
