Dear Fellow Broken-Hearted Arsenal Lovers,
I’ll post a more detailed piece on the horrid loss to United as soon as I can find the motivation. Please bare with me for now because I’m not exaggerating in any way when I say my spirit has been crushed.
What I will say quickly is this: we are Arsenal and we need to stick together.
There is going to be a lot of negativity from outside and within the club over the next few days and we need to keep a sense of perspective and refrain from criticising and bickering with one another. Whatever our opinions are of the players or the management, we all want the team for win and we all feel awful on days like this.
Let’s remember that every person who loves Arsenal – from the players to the management to the fans – has gone through the same thing and the best way to get through something like this is to support each other. I know it’s hard but it’s what we need to do.
At the end of the day this game could have been very different if Kieran Gibbs hadn’t slipped. That’s football. It could happen to any player on the world and it’s the sort of unpredictable incident that makes football the great game that it is.
It didn’t go our way today and it hasn’t been the best season. But let’s keep the faith, stay as positive as we can and stay right behind the club that we love.
