    Wanderers Outgunned By Arsenal

    Note 1: Substitutions may not be completely accurate, Arsenal in particular, changed almost their entire team midway through the 2nd half.
    Note 2: Lustica's goal came from an indirect free kick on the edge of the 6 yard box after Arsenal committed a backpass infringement.

if you don't complain to security about people with flags, or about chants. Guess it depends on how old the kid is. You might hear some swearing as well.

It probably won't be an issue anyway as long as you don't get seats right in the middle front of the active area where most of the active people will be.

Why bother going if you're only going to get shouted at by ****wit arsenal fans who bought tickets to the rbb section for being too loud. 

Well personally I'm not bothering haha.

Which is how I will be watching this, working may way through a case of beer and takeaway. I have more than earned my WSW stripes travelling to away games and getting to most home games, couldn't give a fook about this to be honest..

Just looked at WSW facebook.

A photo with 3 arsenal players with the Harbour Bridge in the background. Redmayne and maybe Zullo for the smurfs;  Cornthwaite and Riera for us!

Watched the press conference this morning with 85% of the questions focused on Wenger (surprise surprise). One twat asked if AW would be willing to coach in the HAL after his time at the Gunners. Oh, and someone let a Sun 'journo' in there (almost as big a crime as seating David Carney at the same desk as Per Mertesacker).

In the RBB on Saturday and TBH I have zero interest in the result per se. If it means I get to see the guys play, meet up with whoever is going, and pour scorn on the EuroSnobs, yeah...I'll take it!

So standard circus pressers then by uninformed "journos" who couldn't name 3 coaches (was going to say 2, but 2 of them were at this presser..) or 4 teams in the A-League.

Would rather go to a pre season friendly at a small suburban ground stood on a grass bank in the freezing cold than this plastic ra ra shyte. Seen Arsenal enough at their old gaff Highbury and at the Boro over the years also and they usually would hammer us, so seen Arsenal supporters celebrating goals more than enough for me, I have done my bit already.

For those going to stand in the RBB and get together then I appreciate that is good mind....but yeah, anyway.

Gunner

He is still on leave, licking his wounds. Confed Cup defeat against Germany B, and Bayern saying "no thanks" to his wage demands.

Yeah and Wenger seems pretty adamant he's going nowhere. Would be a first for arsenal to let a valuable commodity go to waste. 

As for the Liverpool article I went off in a tangent to anyone who would listen when that farce of a legends game went ahead - seriously charging people too dollar to watch old men and then the penny grabbing tour this time 

Liverpool for mine have lost their way go back before the yanks and no way would they treat their fans with such contempt 

forget you will never walk alone how about you won't walk at all cause we won't be here long enough 

not a fan of these games but at least spend time time out there guess it's easier you either pay up and go or don't

I have 3 tickets to the match in the WSW Active area. Face value is $59 each, happy to let them go for $50. They are e-tickets so will send the tickets to your email, or can meet at the ground. They are in Aisle 144, Row 12 seats 50-52. I bought these initially but had to get more as my brother-in-law and his family wanted to go to so we got another set in a different location. Send me an email at the hottest place - stewartv72 or reply to this. Cheers

We'll I'm really looking forward to this now after the words of encouragement and motivation from the club today

I'm really looking forward to not going. 

Does annoy me though, that more non WSW/football fans have asked if I'm going to this game than probably any other game in our history, definitely regular season games.

I naively hoped that we would create an atmosphere to show the eurosnobs what they are missing out on. I think more likely I will get a preview of "the next stage" of active support, hope they give me one of those inflatable clapper things

Is this in response to the email or was this always the case?

I hope you explain how much of a plastic game this is, to let them know the real football is a few months away?

We all know how this is going to end up. This is all geared towards the EPL and trying to attract non A-league fans to watch more A-league. The commentators on tv will wonder (actually they won't)  why we are wearing an away kit to a home match and why there are hardly any Wanderers supporters at the match. This is highly unusual for a Wanderers match, there are usually plenty of active supporters. Yeaaaaaaah okaaaay. This is one of the reasons I hate these EPL matches so much. At least promote it for the A-league team and try and grow the A-league, look after your A-league supporters first before handing out tickets to every effing gooner in the city before any come the Wanderers way. This game is everything the A-league is not. Way to go FFA.
