Angry Arsenal fans hire billboard to protest at club's direction

Wed 31st Aug 2011 | Clubs Ownership

Unhappy Arsenal fans are planning a protest to the club's board - and are making sure no-one will miss it.

One Arsenal supporters' group, Where Has Our Arsenal Gone, have paid £700 to hire a billboard near the Emirates and are also planning a protest ahead of the Swansea game on Saturday week.

The advert will feature the special 125 year anniversary crest with the motto forward - but with a question mark to ask whether the club is moving in the right direction after a turbulent summer.

Arsenal season ticket holder Kelvin Meadows said: "By putting forward with the question mark we are hoping it will provoke debate as to which way the club is going.

"We are not calling for the manager to go, we just want to know what is the club's future after selling Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri this summer. It's been a bad time for the fans.

"The players will see the advert, the directors arriving for the game and staff who work at the stadium on a normal match day. Our objective is just to get the message across."

One original design was vetoed by an advertising company for being too controversial while the latest has been given the green light to be put up next week.
