Last night saw Arsenal player Emmanuel Frimpong and Piers Morag get into a war or words on twitter. With Piers expressing his frustration at Arsenal losing with another t have been the abysmal performance and suggesting that Arsenal need to part ways with Wenger, Frimpong took offence to Piers’ repeated bashing of the club, players and manager that he decided to take a stand.
Now it may not have been the correct thing to do, but as a hot header player on the field still needing to learn when and where to take his frustrations out, maybe it is fair to say that would be the case here. In saying that Piers really should know better because as he points out himself he is twice as old as Frimpong, but from reading the tweets you would imagine they are the same age.
On one hand it is nice to see a player defend his club and his manager, but I am sure the Arsenal fans would like to see this kind of fight and determination from 11 Arsenal players on the pitch.
During the exchange of word piers tweeted “I actually like @Frimpong26AFC and his passion – but his youthful arrogance and complacency sums up #Arsenal ‘s malaise.”
In the end Piers is the one who comes off looking more the fool, but he is voicing a very serious concern for many Arsenal fans and no doubt will have people that are agreeing with him over this.
In the end I think one thing needs to be addressed and that is the word supporter. If you look it up in the dictionary it says – roughly – a person or thing that supports; an adherent, follower, backer, or advocate. Many people can say they are a supporter, but surly that means actually supporting and not complaining. If someone if claiming Child Support they get money to help feed and clothe, they don’t negative abuse on how they could do things better….I’m just saying, if you are a supporter then shut up and support.
