Are they insufferable?





Eric has a theory on why they don't win:

It's the constant moaning about not getting a square deal under Wenger.

Sorry, but their illustrious history amounts to 5 titles kicking a bladder in a bog, and then a good burst under Bruce Rioch or George Graham or summat.

Since when did they have a right to whinge the way they do?

I'm a Tottenham fan but even if I wasn't they'd still do my head in. Seem to think they should be winning big trophies every year, why?
And they always seem to think everything about their club is the best, no matter what 🙄

I think the fact that a lot of the fans only started supporting them about 20 years ago, when they were winning the league, think they should do every year.

They have no idea.

Not every Arsenal fan thinks they deserve to win every year.
Not every Arsenal fan thinks that 4th place is a great place to be.

I've supported them since the late 60's, and I am a season ticket holder.

I've had to endure the years where nothing was won, and am grateful when something is, I certainly don't think it is our right.

We didn't deserve to get in to the top 4 this year, and I'm kinda glad we didn't as it may have prompted Arsene to spend some dollar.


Edit: not exactly sure what the OP was on about, as it just shows the years we have won the top division.
What does this prove ?

It only proves that at certain times, we have been the best team in the top division over a season.

Not many teams can boast too much about that.

I think the op was trying to point out that their history shows even though they have won a good number of titles and yes been more successful than many clubs in the league including my own, success has been sporadic in the which doesn't warrant the unrealistic attitude many of their fans have.
Its good that you have a more realistic view about the position of the club but unfortunately you do seem to be a minority in my experience of arsenal fans. I think you have a point about many fans expecting how it was when Arsene first joined to be the norm.

Equally, with price of a season ticket at the Emirates, you too might feel entitled to some sustained high performance.

I have no direct interest, being a Saracens supporter, except that I lived close to both Arsenal stadiums for the best part of thirty years, and the entire neighbourhood was Arsenal, except for one brave Tottenham supporter.
