Sympathy for the Banaaa boys ? What a laugh. They're making us a laughing stock every time they hold that thing up. They've got their ticket to fame back now so maybe the emotional out-pouring for their great loss can stop.

Yes I sure that's exactly why they're doing it.

Just seen this quote, the irony of it all, some armchair keyboard warrior slating Arsenal supporters that spend their hard earned cash to support the club over land and sea.

This irrelivant superfan doesn't need anyone's help to look a laughing stock.

It's not EVERY away supporter holding up that banaaaaa though, is it. And it's not only hard earned cash that they're spending on away games, it's a fair amount of time too. They must have very little responsibility in their lives. Not saying that's a bad thing, or that some followers of The Arsenal are better than others, just that some of us do have a lot of responsibility and very little free time.

Shoulder shrug ?......

Confiscating a banner because you don't agree with the message is Fascist behaviour. The banner has no swearing that could cause offence and nothing else that could bring the club into disrepute. I disagree with the message and the way its delivered but to confiscate it is probably illegal and a massive own goal. Whoever decided to take it could of been arrested for theft.

Fascist ? Chill out, IBO. It doesn't always take swearing to cause offence and it's often the case that swearing is the least offensive thing that someone could say. It does bring The Club into disrepute imo. taking a flag away from someone is one of the least offensive things that could go on at a match. These banaa boys are very sensitive. Those stewards are a bit scary though :D

So why should a "in arsene we trust" banner be allowed then? Doesn't that cause problems with support that doesn't agree? If one isn't allowed, the other shouldn't be too.

Different rules for different people mate. It should be one rule for all.

Very little responsibility , jobs , relationships, kids , mortgages , debts , theres some who's commitment to the Arsenal is unbelievable , strangely enough they never bang on about how committed they are on the reggae singers TV channel, didnt see water bottle boy there , some of the self proclaimed super fans now moved to the Wenger out camp as well

Why do Arsenal stewards travel to away games?

I am assuming it is to stop, or try to stop any fighting etc etc,and confiscating the banner and giving it back at the end of the game could be seemed quite rightly as preventing any trouble.

I think all CL clubs take their own stewards to away games as well as the Clubs Police Liaison Officers.Sounds a good idea to me.

Werder Bremen away in the UEFA Cup in 2000, there was British Soldiers prowling around our entrances before the game. I asked one of them what they were doing here. He said that both clubs had agreed that there presence would be better than having our Old Bill there.

Agree. A lot of people have changed their tune on Wenger recently, 595. The bloke has a lot of making up to do. He's going to have to re-prove himself over the rest of the season and, dare I say it, the next two seasons after as far as I'm concerned.

Just to clarify a couple of things:

The confiscated (now returned) banner isn't result specific; it will be shown when it can be, which the club actively opposes. Whether you agree with or not is moot, it is rather odious for it to be confiscated and makes Arsenal seem petty.

Secondly; the 'Love Arsenal Hate Usmanov' banner was paid for by REDaction:

So at best we have a strange double standard; 'sod off Jabba' is OK, but 'thanks for the memories but it's time to say goodbye' isn't.

I didn't know before about this Usmanov banner and it seems frankly a bit bizarre. The bloke is a shareholder and, presumably, fan but beyond that has no influence yet at the club and seems to want the same things that fans do so what's to hate? Why are Red Action so against him? I can see why the board might be .....

It's hardly double standards when you compare the position that Wenger holds, and what he has done for The Arsenal, with Usmanov's contribution. If anything, creating and parading a Banner in protest of Usmanov is a ridiculous waste of time.

The banner has RedAction written on it btw, so they're hardly hiding the fact.

The point is though L is that the club are not letting the majority of Arsenal fans have their opinion about Wenger out. How wrong is that? Highest ticket prices in the league and cant even have an opinion unless its for Wenger or the board. Absolutely shocking and not acceptable.

I don't think it's the opinion of the majority though, FR.

The same way he comes to all his other conclusions. It's an 'I think therefore I am' type of approach. Typical !
