It could be considered as the ultimate sign of Arsenal’s times: For the first time since 2011, tickets for their home Premier League game against West Brom on Thursday have gone on general sale.
By Tuesday evening, there were 2,500 tickets available on the club’s ticket exchange, with at least 200 more available to the general public.
There have already been reports that many Arsenal season ticket holders are planning to miss the game, a silent protest at the stagnation they feel their club has experienced.
The attendance at the Emirates is unlikely to be noticeably lower than capacity, but the lack of demand indicates the indignant mood among supporters.
Arsenal have won four of their last 13 matches in all competitions, with fans calling for Arsene Wenger to leave the club at the end of the season. Let’s face it, they’re wasting their breath.
Wenger "I want our fans to be happy when they're not, it affects me. We don't want a negative environment but we must still perform."
