Arsene Wenger

Chelsea against Arsenal. One of the most anticipated fixtures in English football. From a fan’s perspective, THAT Wayne Bridge goal and THAT 6-0 victory on Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game all provide fond memories of the occasion. However, the Gunners fans appear determined to overshadow what is sure to be a great game of football with protests against their penny-pinching board.

The Arsenal hierarchy are renown for tightening their belts and leaving Wenger short. After all, the Frenchman has recently confirmed that the club offered a measly £92M in exchange for AS Monaco sensation Thomas Lemar, as reported in the Daily Mail.

The infamous ‘DT‘, a regular on Arsenal Fan TV, has revealed that the Arsenal faithful are set to stage a protest against Stan Kroenke at some point during their visit to Stamford Bridge in two weeks time.

There is a time and place for this kind of thing, against one of your arch-rivals in a game that could have serious significance in your season is probably not either of those. Though, Arsenal fans do not appear to be deterred. Twitter user @southerngooner has provided further insight into the nature of the protest, posting a photo of a bunch of fake £50 notes with Wenger’s face on.

If you’re planning on grabbing a post-match pie and mash in SW6, we doubt that the cafes and restaurants in the surrounding area will consider these notes legal tender. It’s worth a try, though…
