Readers: If you like what we are doing with this new blog, we appeal to you to Subscribe, Retweet, Repost; do everything in your power to spread the word and encourage new readers. We will never receive the endorsement of mainstream media, not from NewsNow and not the big social media accounts who are making money and notoriety from spreading negativity about Arsenal Football Club. Uncensored Arsenal is the complete opposite.
I am pleased to report our first month of activity has been a tremendous success.
- 17 new blogs have been posted including 4 podcasts. We have tried hard to provide an alternative to the lies and misinformation about our football club that comes not only from the mainstream media but from so-called Arsenal bloggers, tweeters, podcasters and YouTubers who profit from sewing and amplifying negativity. For example, we started publishing just about the time the biggest Arsenal blogger and his so-called financial expert promoted a huge series of tweets that Arsenal had no money and was worse off than all its top-6 rivals. Shortly after it was followed by the bogus #WeCare campaign. How quickly we forget.
- We provide various Arsenal fans from all over the globe a platform to share their point of view including Baba Grumpy, Rich, Shard Gooner and, most famous of all, Blackburn George aka Arseblagger, who has been the main contributor to our podcast. (BTW: George and the PosArse blog has been our biggest supporter.)
The response from most Arsenal fans has been encouraging. Hundreds read our blog and listen to our podcasts. But the truth is at this point we are just a drop in the ocean compared to the huge collection of blogs and websites spewing negativity around the clock.
Once upon a time Arsene Wenger was the key hate figure. An alarming recent trend, however, building up on a tradition started in the austerity years, is for these publications to focus on destroying players they think are vulnerable to supporter dislike and bias, making their tenure at the club impossible even though these players are much better statistically than more highly priced targets in the transfer market. Mustafi anyone.
In fact many of these so-called Arsenal social media accounts no longer pretend to be friendly hobbies. Instead they are money-making projects for their sponsors with Patreon accounts and other forms of monetization by which fans must pay them for their “opinion”. What a travesty!
Corruption and prostitution
Without fans standing up against this corruption, this prostitution of what it means to be a supporter of Arsenal Football Club, how can the club improve its present standing in the Premier League. Recently heard was a podcaster, who used to decry Arsenal’s annual qualification in the Champions League, declare it an “existential necessity”. Isn’t that exactly what some of us kept banging on for years. But for these misleaders, bashing champions league qualification was a convenient way to bash Arsene Wenger who had kept us in this competition for 20 of his 22 years. The hypocrisy and opportunism is breathtaking as it is bold and brass-faced.
There are very voices in the Arsenalsphere opposed to this negativity, opposed to lies and misinformation which if allowed to stand will destroy the best traditions and values of Arsenal Football Club. We need your help to truly become an alternative to the lies and misinformation.
