Arsenal fans to stage protest before Swansea fixture
Saturday 01 December 2012
The largest protest by Arsenal supporters of the era of manager Arsene Wenger is due to take place before the Gunners’ Premier League match with Swansea City, the Daily Mirror has reported.
A supporters’ group called the Black Scarf Movement hope to have more than 1,000 people joining their cause, which the organisers say is not to ratchet up the pressure on Wenger but to make plain the fans’ feelings regarding the way in which the club is run.
The BSM is calling for a number of changes to the process at Arsenal, according to the Mirror, including the cost of tickets, the removal of the chairman Peter Hill-Wood and a change to the layout of the Emirates Stadium to locate away supporters in another part of the ground.
A spokesman for the BSM insisted that once the pre-match protest march had taken place, those involved would be fully supportive of the team and the manager, but that there were decisions taken by the board that they want explained.
