Dear Angry of Internetville,
Yes, we know you’re frustrated.
It would have been good to have won the Carling Cup.
Knocking Manchester United out of the FA Cup would have been very satisfying.
It would have been excellent to have beaten Barcelona and progressed to the quarter finals of the Champions League.
Some trophies over the past five years might also have been nice.
Maybe some additional world class signings during that time would have helped too.
But none of those things happened and we are where we are.
By all means use the Blogosphere as a forum to discuss the merits and shortcomings of our players and our manager.
But please stop writing Open Letters to Mr Wenger, Mr Gazidis, the Board of Directors of Arsenal FC or all three combined.
THEY’RE NOT LISTENING.
THEY DON’T READ THEM.
AND RIGHT NOW THEY’RE TRYING TO WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Of course, you already know they’re not listening, but it doesn’t stop you posting your Open Letter on the internet. So why do you do it?
Isn’t it just a way of trying to make yourself seem important?
But I’m sorry to have to inform you that your view is just as unimportant as mine, my eight-year-old son’s, the bloke with smelly feet who sits behind me at The Grove’s and every other supporter’s.
We are all amateurs. The professionals, thankfully, are the ones running our club and the ones who have performed the greatest miracle in modern football by keeping us seriously competitive while moving to a new stadium that will guarantee our future long after the Chelseas and Manchester Citys have gone into post-sugar daddy decline.
