The Arsenal Flags
Arsenal to ban national flags?
This is bizarre. Arsenal apparently had problems with a lone Turkish Cypriot flying a flag.
The ban would also include the Union jack and Cross of St George. Multi-national Arsenal banning the national flag of the country they are resident in?
If it goes ahead it would be a bit of an overreaction.
Arsenal's supporters have come from across the usual class divides. Additionally, Arsenal have the highest proportion (7.7%) of non-white attending supporters of any club in English football, according to a 2002 report.
I'm not one to start name calling supporters of The Arsenal, (I was always brought up to use the definitive article in the name), but you wouldn't get such PC nonsense down in East End where I'm from, we don't have problems of all the posh people buying tickets pretending to be "real supporters" bringing their fancy notions to the game, even in The New Den Millwall supporters still believe in the old values...
