Former Premier League chairman Simon Jordan took a dig at Arsenal fans when remarking on the pressure manager Unai Emery is under.
The 52-year-old was asked by Jim White which Premier League under-pressure manager he believes was currently most likely to get sacked and in the process didn’t have many nice words to say about the Gunners’ fanbase.
Jordan claimed Arsenal were a toxic club whose fans never seem happy with anything they ever get.
“Emery? Well, that’s just a manager managing a toxic football club with fans who seem to be never happy with anything they ever get,” said Jordan on talkSPORT, seen in a clip on the station’s Twitter account.
Is Jordan right to slam Arsenal fans?
When things aren’t going well, there are always going to be a large number of supporters who vocally protest the manager, and that isn’t specific to Arsenal, it can be said about any football club in the world.
So for Jordan to pretty much have a go at Arsenal fans for never being happy with anything, just seems a low-blow.
As they’re more than entitled to moan about the direction the club is currently going in, the only thing some supporters need to be aware of, is when it comes to taking their criticism too far.
The Gunners haven’t won any of their last six matches, and on Saturday they couldn’t even win against a struggling Southampton side, as the Gunners could only manage to get a 2-2 draw.
When you consider this is a Saints team who not only sit 19th in the table but recently lost 9-0 to Leicester City not that long ago, it shows how unacceptable it is that Emery’s side couldn’t beat them.
After that result, the Gunners currently sit eighth in the table, eight points off fourth-placed Chelsea, and with that in mind, why should supporters not vocally moan?
