Arsenal Message Board

I have to agree with you John for the most part except for the fact the message board only became a waste of time since Yahoo updated it. These boards have long been a waste of time. From the "ManU" windup merchants to Fabby and & Ducati. They all need to find a new outlet for their private little war and leave the message board so we can actually talk about the lads in Red and White instead of oh you don't go to the matches or never been to Emirates war. Well for some of us, it's because of monetary constraints which shouldn't diminish our love for Arsenal or make us any less of a fan than the next person. For others it's because they aren't even supporters even though they claim to be. I don't know about you but I find it just a fun going to my local Arsenal Friendly pub and watching the match, having good beer ($3 breckenridge on draft) and some of the best hamburgers for breakfast and cheering on the lads to victory with the Charm City Gooners and the President of Arsenal America. So to hell with Pixie, Chrissy-Wissy, Butch, Ducati and the rest of the idiocracy on here.
Well said Hemloche, Ive seen Arsenal play only 3 times, yet I used to live 2 miles from Highbury, but could never afford to watch regular. THis board certainly should be about chatting footy rather than immature banter and insults but hey ho...its like the war of the last word.. ultimately drivel. Feel free to discuss stuff with me if you want. I would appreciate some decent debate.

Three people have brought this site down to where it is today. One left ages ago. One pops up with a new ID now and again, and one keeps banging the same old drum, week after week after week.
Nobody cares though. I have simply told him this in an effort to try and help him move on.
I don't hold out much hope though. Not according to this thread at least anyway.
I agree Radge, Hemloch and John, let's try to stick to Arsenal topics and ignore the petty private wars and inappropriate sexual references. I have had good football exchanges with radge lately, Hemloch has been around for a while and I can vouch that John is not one of those who ruins that board and have had many good exchanges with him. As to Fabongras all you have to do is compare the number of posts he puts on here that actually express his view on football compared to all his posts that exclusively or predominately involve personal wars with imagined "adversaries" steeped in homophobic drivel and you will realize why he posts on this forum and it is not for football reasons. The ignore button was quite useful in his case.
Sincerely sorry you have witnessed the 'immature banter' Radge.
All I will say in my defence is that I have always and without exception, treated other posters on this board as they have me and have never been abusive in any way to a supposed Arsenal 'supporter' on the Arsenal board before they have been abusive towards me.
Believe what you will, but that is the truth of it.
Some here just don't like those who either support Wenger, or take exception to the Man United supporters that have plagued this board for many a year.
That's all very well Hemloche, but I do feel the need to point out that you have deliberately chosen to ignore the minor fact that John loves to slate other posters, just as much as anyone else on here.
PS. I didn't notice John jumping to your defence when Rikki started posting up information about your personal life on here. Did you? I would suggest your blind loyalty needs a trip to Specsavers.

John did not come to my defense because it wasn't necessary. Rikki was only spouting lies and there is no need to defend myself against lies. Also, Rikki's opinion means little to me as does yours, Chris's, Duc's and any of the other windups.
Of course, the fact that you can't make every game has nothing to do with how strongly you support the club. The only reason I point out the fact that I do regularly attend games, is because some still that as a reason to say that I am not an ardent supporter of the club. Which is of course ridiculous.
At the end of the day, I can easily debate/argue/offer a different opinion to yours, Raiders, Wills, James, Radge and in some cases Slayers, but without the need to try and belittle the other person, just because their opinion doesn't match mine. I will only do that if the other person tries it on me first.
I hope a few more come back and we can turn this around. I barely get on here more than a couple of times a week now. But it would be nice to see a variety of opinions rather than the usual (not that there's anything wrong with them) few posters that are left.
