#BoycottBuyingTheArsenalKit

 

Boycott

Over the last week we have had an interview from Wenger stating that there is a distinct possibility that he won’t spend this transfer window as well as insisting that Arsenal are strong enough to compete for the title without any signings. As well as Arsene’s delusional speeches we have heard a lot of other people saying that there is a divide at Arsenal with Arsene refusing to spend and the board are growing increasingly impatient at having to deal with a manager who refuses to spend and possibly admit that he is wrong. Amy Lawrence a journalist from the Guardian spoke quite frankly on the situation at Arsenal last night and you can hear a clip of what she had to say on the link below.

Link to Interview (HERE)

We are tired of watching the financial views of certain people bring our club down, we are sitting on a small fortune with a depleted squad and no action has been taken to buy any players this summer! Every club asides from Man United have all bought players this season and strengthened up their squads and we are left wondering what do our board and manager do every summer? It is time for this to end, it is time for us to take action and make them sit up and notice how unhappy the fans really are.

Arsenal Action have organised a boycott of buying the Arsenal kit this season. It is simple just don’t buy the kit, if we all refuse to buy a new kit then it is a start. Wear an old shirt to games, they are much nicer than the new ones anyway. If Arsenal refuse to spend money then why should we? Let’s unite and show them we are serious in our view on their socialist transfer policy.

Support Arsenal with your heart. Support the players and never boo them. But until Arsene Wenger starts to spend the pound notes, WE the fans wont spend on the new kit or ANY Arsenal Merchandise.

Time to take a stand Gooners

    Yes, We should do that now ..

  2. Frolicols says:

    This is absolute tripe. I will support my club through thick and thin. Buying players doesn’t guarantee titles. The current squad were top of the form table for the last 12 games of last season.

    I will be sticking two fingers up at Arsenal Action, buying the sexy new Arsenal away kit and singing my heart out for whichever 11 are on the pitch come August 17th.

  3. Manc-Gooner says:

    This is the kind of action I have been longing for because without drastic actions like this, Arsenal management board or A.W himself will not understand to what extent they have pushed us to. I am a loyal Arsenal fan and cant continue hiding my face when I come across other fans, I think we should boycott home games aswell thats the only way the board and manger will ever take us serious. Its high time we they fans get some loyalty and pride back after this long 8 years of disappointment . It time for Action no more small talk or empty promises. we all need to stand as one or continue hiding our face.

  4. Rutger says:

    Well I was planning on just throwing my toys at a wall… I like this idea better though. Kudos.

  5. seguya vicent says:

    yeah uo right lets boycott wenger is making fool of us.dat damn manager is so economical

  6. J. Liko says:

    Best Way will be to also boycott the games. That will definitely hit them hard and Wenger with his board will finally understand that fans should have their say and this one count. COME ON GOONERS!!!! LET’S STAND TOGETHER AND BOYCOTT ARSENAL GAMES AND KITS TILL THE CLUB IS STRENGTHENED WITH TOP NOCHT PLAYERS.

  7. Dog says:

    It is a start but we need to do more, boycott the Emirates Cup as well and the first games of the season.
    About time we took this club back.

  8. keith says:

    better still why not stop going

  9. Jordan Gooner says:

    The Transfer window is still open until the 02 September, so I am expecting the club to make two marquee signings. Boycotting the kit will make no difference to the club. If no players are bought , there will be a big blacklash from the supporters, which will force change, either at the board level or management.

  10. Frolicols says:

    Why don’t you all just boycott the club permanently and don’t come back? Don’t let the door hit your backside on the way out.

  11. MattAFC says:

    Yeah lets just buy for the sake of buying! Wooo lots of money on players who might not improve our squad that’s what we need. £50 million for an racist prat who bites people? Job done. £30 million for a player who was a good goalscorer in a league where people can’t defend but not a first teamer. Excellent purchase!

    These stories about how close we got to the likes of Bernard and Higuian are very inflated we probably never made an offer, or if we did we bulked at the price and probably quite rightly. If we spent 21 million on Bernard and he struggled Wenger will be booed. He can;t win either way with a lot of the plastic fans so might as well not disrupt team morale or break the bank

  12. Dan says:

    support arsenal thru thick and thin, thru mud and shit. boycotting wont help arsenal score goals, if anything it would just make the players feel under appreciated after losing out on their fanbase. your support on the other hand gives players morale, a reason to play, a reason to score.

  13. SinGooner says:

    This year will definitely be the year spurs will end up above Arsenal. Thats the only time i hope Wenger’s pet fans will know Wenger has taken Arsenal a step below.

  14. Harry Barracuda says:

    Go and buy a Man City shirt and cheer on the team that spends the most, you fucking moron.

  15. Mike says:

    @Frolicols @Matt AFC

    Well said. The idea of not supporting the players (or booing as some idiots have done) is a surefire way of making the club less attractive to potential signings and pissing off the players who do step out onto the pitch. I bet if Jack left next summer because of booing fans or a boycott of games, those fans responsible would manage to blame someone else.

    Any fan that’s unhappy with the club now is unlikley to have experienced the dark days of the 1960’s and I’ll be more than happy if they leave and take their gloryhunting pals with them. I’m a “supporter”…….the clue is in the name!

  16. John Fraser says:

    I support not only buying the new kit but also boycott games. Enough with Wenger’s arrogant and failed ideology with in experience young and cheap players. We don’t need to spend candy bars to sign kids like Sonogo, we to use cash to go after winners and strong men not kids.

  17. goon says:

    I agree something needs to be done but boycotting the kit isn’t one of them

  18. stan says:

    I trust wenger knows the best. Yeah, it would be great if we got that billion dollar superstar. But it wouldnt garantee us anything. The fact is, this is prob the first time in many years we dont need to sell off our biggest and best stars. Everyone stays this season. Last year we had half a new team, slowly adapting to eachother, getting better and better every game. Just look at the last 15 matches last season. We were the team that took the most points. And thats why i have faith in our team, new signings or not. Continue to support wenger and arsenal. Boicotting wont do us any good. I dont get it why some “fans” starts booing our own team.

  19. Wez Hunter says:

    what a ridiculous article. why is it anyone with a blog think they have the right to try and bring the club to it’s knees. it’s time to grow up, support your club and if you don’t like it then bugger off. Just because you go to a game or two doesn’t mean you have any idea about how to run a football club. You also have no idea about what work is being done to try and sign players, and who we are really interested in. Most press speculation is aimed at selling papers, or set up by agents trying to get the player a better contract at their current club. How many players have we been ‘linked’ with this season, only to see them sign a new contract 2 weeks later? it’s like being in a school playground with half the crap you see ‘reported’ in pre-season.

  20. kris Yenne. says:

    Am A Nigerian Gunner,and a faithful one @that.i have long waited for English gunners,to take such drastic stand so as to send a massage.
    And not only that,lets boycott,home games as well.we cant keep spending on a product that doesnt give us value for our money despite geting good profit.
    As for me i have stopped paying to watch arsenal in viewing centre 2years back,and also,i have stop buying arsenal jeysee aswell.lets our(fans) motto be: “SPEND AND LEST SPEND”.
    But am still a true gunner oh.

  21. Norm W says:

    Can’t believe these wallies talking about the performance of the last 10+ games of last season…We never played anyone of substance and were still miles off the top 3 with pure quality. AW took us on a great adventure for 10 years and has now taken us to an all-time low….How could any manager get away with an 8-2 defeat to Man U and no trophy for 8 years and earn 7.50m a year?….And we certainly can’t brag about TOP 4 when we are the most expensive “day-out” in the league with 60,000+ fans every week (on paper, coz there has to be at least 5,000 empties every week)

  22. will says:

    Is this the black hand gang or what ever it was again if you don’t support the team don’t buy the season ticket let it go to someone that does window open another month I know kids can’t wait for xmas

  23. Oddbod says:

    Clear that BAABs only allow comments on their site that agree with. They want to cunt off the arsenal but the moment someone stands up for the arsenal and cunts them off their comment are not published. The label BAAB definitely applies

  24. aspiratttion says:

    Enuf of ds heartaches n making-fool-out-of-people. Lets boycot any of dia merchandise.
    Dey dont spend, we dont spend.

  25. Oddbod says:

    Just noticed that you invite your readers to speak their mind. What a load of bollock. This is a two bob shite site

  26. Oddbod says:

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    I hate BAABs (Brainless Anti Arsenal Bloggers). Instead of positively supporting the club and when necessary, offering constructive criticism, they spew their negative bile instead. They probably do so because of a desire to relieve themselves from the pain of of living their miserable little lives.

    I also hate the desciples of these BAABs because……….nuff said!!

  27. robin banks says:

    Been saying it since 2008 . . . smash Wenger in the face with a claw hammer and problem solved!

  29. ershad gooner.. says:

    you are right…. but in Arsene we trust…. don’t you think Wenger wants to win the league or say the CL.. he definitily does.. but you will have to understand… Wenger and co. were busy stabilsing the Club financially… only spending money will not give results… yes we need to strengthen ourselves in attack and also a goalkeeper…

  30. Mike says:

    @ Wez Hunter

    So brilliant. We have a few young poeple (glory hunters) who know how to set up a blog but are barely out of short pants but think that because they have a blog they have some sort of important opinions. Arses the lot of them. This is yet another chikdish blog despatched directly to the recycle bin.

    I love an intelligent debate but please use more than one brain cell before trying to start an intelligent exchange of views otherwise you just look completely stupid. And don’t believe anything you read in the press.

    @ Norm W

    Of course, it would be ridiculous to use any sort of scientific evidence to support an argument; you stick to irrational vitriol, you’ll be bound to find a few small minded people who will agree with you (having just been to the dole office to sign on).

  31. celestine says:

    @mark and other fucking foolish fools..
    How nd why on earth wil u eva support wenger 4 the pains nd sufferings he has put us through the past horrible years?i dnt think dat any sensible nd reasonable arsenal fan wil be voicing as foolish as u jst did(mark)…lets start boycottin even d home nd away games nd let see where nd how d make d money d foolishly sit on..rubbish

  32. Gary says:

    Surely boycotting the kit, but buying one of the worlds most expensive season tickets and turning up in an old shirt misses the point somewhat? If your boycotting kit, you need to boycott all money that goes to the kitty, merchandise, tickets, etc too!

  33. andy says:

    For all the good AW has bought to the club, the style of football the philosophy the training ground the the diet, he’s ruining it all with his stubbornness and pig headed attitude. ..I for one was not taken in by all the rubbish noises going around about all these big plyers coming to arsenal this year…reasons being, what is so different about this season, why all of a sudden change your ways and buy a 30-40 million pound player? The man’s got a masters in economic’s for crying out loud, his valuation of a player is miles away from what a selling team can get for a decent player now days…teams like chelsea and man city just add 20% and the players there’s. ..it pains me to say this but I think we need a change. ..I’m not even remotely happy just to qualify for champion’s league year in year out

  35. Gavin says:

    Russian fans went crazy from Wenger.
    If Wenger doesn’t buy Suarez – they will give to everyone $ 200.
    Lol. Nice photo Suarez + Wenger

    I do not think that Wenger will be able to do it.

  36. EnoughOfWenger says:

    New chant for Wenger, to the old Van Persie chant

    It should’ve been you…
    It should’ve been you…
    Not Villanova…
    It should’ve been you…

    Fucking pedophile

  37. Mick says:

    Can’t believe how many people seem so supportive of the way the club have operated this summer. They deliberately manipulated supporters by delivering that ‘we will buy big’ message just before season tickets go on sale – convenient. They make their bids, knowing they won’t be accepted, but at least it looks like they’re trying. All the while the fans are being extorted, paying ludicrous ticket prices to watch a bunch of kids and good, but not great players. We’re facing an injury crisis and the season hasn’t even started – these blind faith supporters are treated like cash-cows, but in return offer their unconditional love. Action must be taken and not buying shirts would be a start, a good one. The players need our support, the club needs to feel our anger.

Trackbacks/Pingbacks

  1. […] Granted, some Arsenal fans can be accused of being a tad over-reactionary, as with just one game gone it seems harsh to be so critical of Arsene Wenger or the club; or is it? With the mass of expectation at the end of the last season, Arsene and Arsenal have again proved to be a massive let down with the clubs transfer policy. The club is printing money for fun and their fans pay top dollar, so far to have seen a humiliation at the hands of a team which were very lucky to stay up last season. There is serious talk of demonstrations against the club and there is already a boycott of the clubs new kit being organised by a fan group (see link). […]
