Thanks to various social media outlets, blogs and platforms, itís much easier to spread the word. When talks of boycotts were proposed before, there was always the fear that non regulars would take the place of regular attenders. That wasnít the case yesterday and breaks that fear that any action is pointless. I think most people want to do something because nobody is happy with the way things are now,

    The press are running stories of Emirates being half empty and thousands boycotting the game and Iíd say weíve got the message across. Even if Wenger tries to spin it as an odd day in the week to play a game, the general consensus is that this was a boycott. Itís caught the attention of the mainstream media and letís hope it catches on with someone that has Kroenkeís ear. Credit to all those that got the word out and started it. Heard it from Le Grove and Iíve always wished Arseblog would use their platform to make a similar statement. Not too late to. As said, if it werenít NQ mentioning it again on here, Iíd have gone.
    I just decided earlier in the season that I wasn't going to give the Club any money other than my Silver membership. I also told my friends and family that I don't want any Arsenal merchandise bought for me.

    I realise the membership was dead money, but I've kept it in case the situation improves some day.

    That seems pretty sensible to me

    I have never gone to more than a few games every season anyway. But this is the first season in almost 15 years that I haven't gone to watch at least one game.

    The last game I went to see was January last year (FA cup game against Sunderland)

    I did go to a handful at the start of the season when we were playing quite well, but after Christmas it was very obvious where things were heading. Just isn't worth the time nor money if you're not getting the enjoyment out of it anymore. Plus other priorities have arised for myself personally so the club can most certainly take a back seat.

    They can take my Silver money no problem, that's an investment for the future, but I can't imagine I'll be attending any games next season if we don't have a new manager.

    This game dragged on a bit.
    It's far too late to try to sleep now, seems I'm never tired any more.
