Piers Morgan Is Calling For Arsenal Supporters To Start Boycotting Matches
Lifelong Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan is calling for his fellow fans to boycott the club's matches in the wake of yesterday's Carabao Cup Final defeat at the hands of Manchester City.
The Gunners went into the match hoping to build on their positive record at Wembley Stadium, but they were soon on the ropes against Pep Guardiola's side, and eventually went on to lose comfortably 3-0.
Morgan has been a vocal critic of manager Arsene Wenger for some time now, but speaking to Jim White on talkSPORT this afternoon he took his protests to the next level, and asked fans to stop handing over their hard-earned cash.
LISTEN: "Yes we should start to boycott it, because if that's the way that gets rid of #Wenger, and makes this board wake up, then so be it".@piersmorgan joined the @JimWhite show earlier today, and had plenty to say on Wenger and #AFC. pic.twitter.com/EKahKITAOR- talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) February 26, 2018
Whilst he's always openly slaughtered Wenger and his tactics for the best part of a decade now, Morgan has always still attended matches at the Emirates and supported the team.
It remains to be seen if any other Gooners out there will follow his lead and stay away - starting with Thursday's match, which is ironically against Man City.
What do you think of his comments?
In other news, Jack Wilshere has named the three decisions that went against Arsenal in his latest Instagram post.
"Hard to put into words my emotions about yesterday." he said on Instagram.
"City are a good team and deserved to win yesterday. A lot of people have had their say on us and we have to accept criticism when we lose. That being said i can't accept some of the decisions that went against us yesterday."
Wilshere showing just how deep Wenger has sunk his whiny little claws into the club. Actually pathetic. He's literally wrong about everything in this. Don't get me fucking started on his grammar and how much of a bell end he is. pic.twitter.com/zdbcDFD0fG- Esteemed Kompany (@StevenMcinerney) February 26, 2018
"What ever you say about the first goal, its a foul. The second goal is offside. There should have been a second yellow in the first half. Yes this happens in football but its still hard to accept.
And people will say we are looking for excuses but these are facts. Anyway we need to respond, starting on Thursday.
Thanks to all the gooners for your support and trust me we feel the same but we need to stick together."
I love Jack Wilshere but I'm not sure he's got THAT much of a leg to stand on here, the first one is a foul but it's also so soft you can't really complain that it isn't given. The second one isn't really offside, he doesn't affect the play. It's just clutching at straws.- The 2Ö21 Man (@_The12thMan) February 26, 2018
Wilshere's response to Sunday's defeat received quite the reaction on social media.
