    Well, to buck the trend, I can actually see where they're coming from. The whole point of binning Highbury and moving to the Emirates was on the basis that, with a 60k stadium, they would be on an equal footing with the elite of Europe and could challenge for the major silverware. They have since had about 10 years of moderate but trophy-less success, but then thats largely excused because they were still paying the thing off. Now its paid off, and asid from a couple of FA Cups, they're still drifting further and further away from the major honours. They're becoming irrelevent. I can't even remember the last time they were in a title race, and they frankly get embarrassed in the Champions League every year (2-10 v Bayern ??).

    OK, first world problems and all that. They've never had their ground sold from under them and had to trek to a dump like Gillingham blah blah. But for a club of their size and stature, and the horrific amount of CASH those fans have to stump up to go there...yeah, I'd be angry too.
    You have a shit memory then. They should have comfortably won the title when Leicester did.

      Well, I've never been called a troll before.
      Then explain your post in more detail. As Mr.Spock would say - "Illogical."

      Indeed. It was theirs for the taking that season.

      As far as I can see, this all goes back to the FA and their feeble implementation of a fit and proper owners test. Kroenke is no better than that nob at Man Utd, both fleecing the clubs (in different ways) and owners with no emotional attachment to the game or their clubs whatsoever.

      That said, let's be under no illusions that the majority of those walking out will just be the tiresome types who don't like the fact Arsenal have taken 3 points out of 9. If Arsenal were as average as they have been, but with a British born Arsenal fan running the club, they'd still be walking out like spoilt toddlers.

      They might get some sympathy if they weren't so bloody arrogant!! A bit of humility goes a long way so as it stands I'd like to see em suffer a while
      I'm seem to recall us getting fans of other clubs to send a pre-written letter to every Tom, Dick and Harry claiming us getting a new ground was of national importance.

      That's pretty arrogant! It wasn't even of local importance for the a lot of people in Sussex.

      As @Easy 10 says first world problems etc etc but I'd be well and truly pissed off if I was Arsenal. Different clubs have different problems.

      Let them protest I say can see it only doing us a favour.

      Leicester won the League by 10 points.

      That is NOT a race. Its a canter.

      Most Arsenal fans are as passionate about their club as any other and they have a massive history, tradition and heritage.
      They also pay a lot of money to follow them and they should easily be doing a lot better than they are.
      This is not all about now, it's about the last few seasons as well.
      They see that something is going badly wrong and it's getting worse, it's their club and if they want to let them know how unhappy they are then good luck to them.

      It's all relative isn't it.

      A 'disaster' for us is our ground being sold from beneath us, and fans doing all they did to keep us in existence whilst scrapping at the bottom of the football league.

      A 'disaster' for Arsenal fans is 2 FA Cups in the last few years but dropping out of the Champions League for 1 season, albeit struggling to challenge for the title for the past few seasons.

      I think it's fair enough a lot of fans see them as a little bit tinpot and over-expectant, but it's amazing what a bit of success (and they've had more than a bit in their history) does to expectations. Leicester fans had a year of overachieving, and expectations were raised so high that some of their fans (and board) wanted Ranieri gone months later.

      I still think Arsenal fans are proper tinpot though.

      At least if the Arsenal end empties entirely it won't have much of an effect on the atmosphere
