I keep hearing the battle cry of " get behind the manager" " get behind the team "
But why is it our players and our team who's attitude commitment and passion that is called into question each and every season and has been for so many seasons running now?
Other teams play poorly other teams have bad spells even bad seasons but it's only Arsenal players who's attitude is questioned on an annual basis.
Why is that acceptable and why do the fans have an obligation to back a team who may or may not turn up mentally today?
Will our players fancy today's game? It's anyone's guess whether our players will be up for it or not today and that isn't acceptable at pub team level let alone one of the biggest clubs in the country.
100% commitment and effort should be the minimum a fan expects from thier team when leaving the house to watch them and it is everywhere but Arsenal where each game it's a hope rather than an expectation the players will be committed in that days game.

I'm finding it impossible to decide what to expect from today mate.
Of course we are and should be favourites to win this one but Bournemouth will desperate not to make it 4/ 4 defeats for the season.
Niether a win draw or defeat are difficult to imagine happening today.

Same could said about us fans giving 100% G62. One of the things I belive we have always lacked unless eveything is hunky dorey. We as a club (fans) need to make the Emirates intimidating for the opposition not our mob.

Just my thoughts.

You talking to yourself now 62?😂.

Yeah I've noticed that too Stoner mate ;-) I need to get myself an additional username if I'm going to do it properly though mate :-)

Haha Stoner, our buddy G62 has probably had a wee bit much brown sauce with his Saturday morning full English.

You ain't wrong Sharpie :-)

I agree with that to a large degree mate, Arsenal fans have never been the most vocal especially when the team is struggling but the fans pay to attend the game so to some degree it's up to them how they behave while the players are paid to play for Arsenal and have a duty to give 100%.

I really feel this acceptance from some fans that our team might not always put in a shift and our manager might or might not do the right things in the transfer market or in his team selections but still expect everyone to get on board the happy bus has helped maintain the clubs managers and players lack of ambition.

what ever you do 62 don't spell it in capitals! 😉😂.

People need to get behind the team! It's a vicious circle. Things ain't going to change for the foreseeable future so we will have to pick the slack up. And anyone that goes to the emirates can see how the anxiety from the crowd is effecting the players . I for one am not suggesting I'm happy but someone has to be the bigger and stand and fight because there doesn't look much in the team.
