Second anti-Wenger protest; Saturday 4:15 @ Avenell Road

I attended the pre-Bayern Munich protest on Tuesday night and was quite surprised by the high turnout. Contrary to media reports of there being 100-200 people, in my opinion it was easily double that – more like 400 minimum.

However, this is still a very small percentage of the matchday attendance and I would implore supporters to make more effort to join the march tomorrow and help do their bit to get Wenger out of the club.

I would like to thank the The Online Gooner for stepping up and organising these marches. Hopefully, they will be organised at every home game between now and the end of the season, irrespective of results, and attendances will increase.

The march was respectful towards Wenger, and those fans that did not take part were respectful to those who did. That’s how it should be.

See you tomorrow at Avenell Road.

You should be demonstrating against the board and cretin Kroneke.

Kroenke's clever - he knows how to make money out of the mugs that back Wenger.

AT did you happen to see some of the commentary on Arsene on ESPN FC show?

Craig Burley says: ( paraphrased ) "No, he doesn't deserve respect. What is it with this idea. Is Arsene Wenger the new Mother Teresa? Is he feeding and clothing the hungry millions of the world? Is he producing clean drinking water for the millions...No. he's a bloody football manager on 8.5 million pounds a year."

Yes, I did happen to see that.

If history's taught us anything it's that dictactors cling on to power until they're dragged out and strung up by their heels from the proverbial lamp post. The board, to a man, obviously don't give a fuck about "those impudent ingrates!" but...more power to the marchers.

Btw, I do actually pity Wenger; the man's approaching 70 and his life's emptier than a hermit's address book, bless him. I just wish he'd man up and fuck off to a nice job in Ligue 1 or something.

Hi Truth

Glad that you made it down!

The Online Gooner forum is planning more protests and other ideas are welcome. I believe that a billboard was discussed. If anyone wants to join, please go to the Online Gooner forum - On The Terraces.

The protests will continue.

400 people? And this is a high turnout? That's a laughable number; nothing will ever happen off the back of that. Well done for making the effort though.

I suspect more may have turned up if they could convince themselves that the board would be swayed in some way. But we all know they won't react, which does make it a mostly pointless exercise all round.

It's not pointless at all. Once people become comfortable with the idea of protesting they're more likely to join. If you want Wenger out and are in the vicinity but can't be arsed to join the march, then you're either a coward like he is or should stop complaining.

Noted that thousands of supporters were unresponsive when Arsenal scored. That was a form of protest, as I feel they were the ones who were waiting (hoping) for Lincoln to cause an upset.

Why didn't they join the march then?

I'm not sure if you're calling me a coward, but let's assume you are. Firstly, you know nothing about me so that statement is based on zero evidence and is ultimately nonsense. Secondly I don't see how my comments can be construed, in any way, as complaining. Please enlighten me if I'm wildly out of touch on this.

People didn't turn up because they couldn't be arsed. They have better things to do with their lives. You're standing up for what you believe in which is commendable, but I think the complaints always come from your blog; the manager, the board, the wages, the players. It must be very tiring having that much negativity inside you. Football became a joke a long time ago, this is just another small drama waiting to unfold.

I wasn't talking about you specifically, but 'you people' as in fans that moan but don't do anything about it.
