Andrey Arshavin has taken a digg at Arsenal fans and I know this will not go down well with us at all. I am livid by his comments!
The Russian striker who left Arsenal for Zenit St Petersburg, told The Sun: “It felt like the crowd was at the theatre – good seats, expensive tickets and they wanted to see a show, not to support the team.
“It was like there was no advantage in playing at home.
“Many of the players – the leaders that were left from the club’s time at Highbury – often complained that the atmosphere in the stands was so bad.”
Where does Arshavin come off by saying this? I feel it is sour grapes coming from him as he looks back at his time at Arsenal and realises that he was not good enough to remain at the club and build a never for himself in Arsenal history.
One thing we can agree with is that the tickets are expensive to watch Arsenal games but surely you can not compare the atmosphere to ‘going to a theatre’. We may not be the loudest fans but we do support our team 100%!
