Last night the gunners beat already relegated 2-0 at the Emirates to keep their top four hopes up hoping Liverpool might lose points on match day 38 as Manchester City also sealed their top four fate with a convincing 3-1 victory over Tony Pulis West Brom.
Despite the fine form of the Gunners in recent weeks, fans have not stopped protesting against manager, Wenger. Last weekend at stoke despite the gunners cruising to a 4-1 victory a plane still went over the Bet365 stadium with a ‘Wenger Out’ banner and last night was no different as a faction of the fans boycotted the game leaving empty seats in protest to the state of affairs in the Club and the constant under performance of the gunners under the frenchman.
Just before kick-off there looked to be around 40,000 in the stadium.
Ten minutes into the game around 5,000 more took their seats – still not a good look in a stadium that has a capacity of over 60,000. The Gunners later said that there were 59,510 ‘tickets sold’ for the match.
This was never the vision for this masterpiece of a stadium. It deserves so much better than nights like this.
