The Abuse? Is It Needed?

Don't get me wrong, yesterday was embarrassing. 

It was nearly as embarrassing as the time I saw Kelly Brook in Bluewater Shopping Centre. I shouted Kelly and then, as she looked round, I hid behind some cookie stall.

I've had people ask me how I was so calm in defeat, especially in the manner we lost, but I think it was easier to take because it was all over within 20 minutes if that makes sense?

Had we lost to a last minute goal after playing well, and competing for 90 minutes, then I believe I'd have been in bits.

That said it was embarrassing. And I don't want to see anything like it again for at least 100 years. 

Now I know people deal with things in different ways. Going on Twitter after a game like that is like a minefield.

I can read one tweet, it appears perfectly reasonable, and I find myself nodding away like that Bulldog from the Churchill insurance adverts. 

Then, I can read another tweet, and I feel like drinking ten pints of Stella Artois and going on a rampage somewhere. Somewhere like Stoke, and destroying all them inbreds with a toilet brush. 

I understand people get frustrated, I was frustrated, but sometimes people can go over the top with their reactions. 

Constructive criticism is always welcome in my eyes. If someone has a valid point about something I will respect it, even if I don't agree with it.

Criticism is good, when it is warranted, and I reckon that the performance by Arsenal yesterday deserved plenty of it.

What I don't agree with though, and it makes my blood boil hotter than the sight of Shakira doing one of them bum wiggles, is when people, especially Gooners, feel the need to call Wenger, or any Arsenal player, names.

The amount of times I've seen Wenger or Giroud is a c*nt, or any other player, recently astounds me.  

Is there a need for it? I understand people can get angry. When I get angry I too can have the mouth of a sailor,  I hold my hands up, but is there genuine need to be abusive?

Arsene Wenger is not above criticism. I love the man to death. But I know he has faults. I know he does things wrong and at times he can drive me insane in the membrane.

Yesterday I felt he did things wrong, I felt the players did more wrong, but some of the venom I've seen spat his way is more deadly than a King Cobras.

Why? Is there honestly a need to drop 'C' bombs on him? Is there a need to call Giroud a 'useless French c*nt' just because he miscontrolled a pass? 

I've done it in the past I'm sure, so I'm not painting myself as whiter than white but it makes me cringe. 

Some people need to show a little more respect. I don't drop abusive swear bombs on my dad if he burns my Yorkshire puddings on my Sunday roast. I just knock him out. Seriously though is there a need for it?

As I've said, I understand why people were pissed about yesterday. It was a bad day and I know people need to vent their fury, but have a little more respect because you wouldn't like to be called a c*nt would you?

Go tell Wenger to play a different tactic against big teams.He should GROW up.It is time he start playing Verminator the captain as DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER.Same way Mourinho is using Davis Liuz at Chelsea.Arsenal MUST BEAT UNITED for pride sake and to restore their place as title contender.
