Nasri To Arsenal Fans: Forget Me

Nasri To Arsenal Fans: Forget Me

An ecstatic Samir Nasri has asked Arsenal supporters to forget him now that his difficult move to Manchester City has been vindicated...

In an interview in France with TF1, Le Petit Prince de Marseille who had previously made no secret of his hurt at Arsenal reaction to his departure led by Twitter keyboard warrior Piers 'Morgan' Moron said:

'People at Arsenal tried to make out that I came here for the money. I hope they are watching me now, collecting my Premier League winner's medal. I believe they have not won a trophy for many years now. If all that I was interested in was money, the easiest decision would have been to stay at Arsenal, picking up my money every week and walking into the team. There are many people doing this right now at Arsenal.

'I made the hard choice to come and fight for my place at a big club where they never settle for second best, and I have been proved right.'

'I now hope the Arsenal fans can get on with their lives and forget me, they should celebrate their third-place achievement and I will focus upon winning titles.'


In other City v Arsenal related news, long time admirer of brilliant Arsenal talisman Robin Van Persie, Roberto Mancini has flown to Abu Dhabi with his management team to discuss squad strengthening. Van Persie is a close friend of Nasri. A subsequent bold bid for Van Persie cannot be ruled out.

Nasri, Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Touré and the superb Gael Clichy have thus far exchanged The Emirates for The Etihad. France and Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira is City's Football Development Executive and plays a key role in supporting Mancio's squad.

Jack Wilshere: "“I don’t know what goes on his head. Fair play to him, he has won a trophy but over the next couple of years that’s our goal and I can see Arsenal winning a trophy. Maybe he spoke too soon and we can rub it in his face next year.”

Every bit as inflamatory a comment as that made by Nasri, but i bet the gooners will big him up for making it. Funny that.

I like Man City fans, I really do but come on guys. You really think this little ***** wouldn't do the same to you and your club? Don't let this new success get to your head, he has not been wronged by Arsenal FC or the fans.

PC, the Arsenal fans have been gunning for Nasri since he left - their treatment of him in the League Cup was appalling, as bad as I've ever heard. Yeah, it's obviously gone to Nasri's head a bit but I think he's entitled to have a go considering the abuse he's had to put up with - uber ***** Piers Morgan leading the cavalry assault. But how this in any way points to the success going to City fans heads, I don't know. That's just a plainly stupid suggestion.
16/05/2012 13:29:00
He hasn't in any way been wronged by Arsenal PC but the same can't be said of the fans. I've never seen such a blog obsession with one player than I saw with Arsenal bloggers this season wishing bad on Nasri, telling everyone that he's underperforming and just generally verbally abusing him. His decision has been vindicated and he has every right to make them fans eat their words.

Arsenal fans sang his name non stop for an entire season,they created a song for him, (have City fans? I genuinely don't know) at the end of that season, of which only half he bothered turning up for, he bafflingly turns on the club and the fans. That's why he is hated, there was absolutely no bad blood or chain of events which explained his attitude towards our club. Like many footballers, he's spoilt and immature, perhaps he's emotionally incapable of making a decision without creating an enemy to justify his actions. I'm disappointed with you guys, can't you see it? It's crystal clear. We all know Arsenal fans aren't perfect but this one is not on us. Not even close. There's a reason why Clichy, Toure and Vieira are still respected at Arsenal, there's a reason Adebayor and Nasri are treated like parasitic mercenaries who can't keep their end of the bargain. Have you also conveniently forgot that he really wanted to join Man United rather than City, he's a copy and paste self server, just like Adebayor, you'll see soon enough.

Nasri had more than his fair share from Arsenal fans, I'd still say this is a little classless for the peak moment of your career. But whatever. It is however, very disrespectful to the manager that brought him to England and invested so much time and faith in him, to question his ambition and slag off his squad. You could make an argument saying us fans are fair game, but to have a pop at his ex manager and teammates is not really on.

Arsenal fans have sent him and his family death threats on Twitter, taunted and abused him all season long. That diabolical excuse of a man Piers Morgan was one of the worst and did his £10,000 bet with Nasri that Arsenal would win a trophy before Nasri does at City... honestly, considering the obscene abuse Nasri has taken (I saw some of it on Twitter, one Gooner threatened to take a machete to him and cut him to pieces) he's showed a lot of restraint with his comments. I'd channel our fanzoner Walter and shout "TAKE IT! TAKE IT! TAKE IT!".

@stuMCFC, Using morons on twitter as a benchmark for anything isn't credible. Using idiots in general to justify the abuse of decent, loyal people makes no sense whatsoever. I don't recall Wenger, the club or Arsenal fans treating Nasri badly, in fact quite the opposite. Also, your time scale is out of sync, Nasri started bad mouthing our club when relations were very good, he started this waaaay before the fans turned on him.

That's a tad childish mate to be fair. He's directing his comments at "people at Arsenal", not the club itself. His comment about not settling for second best is perhaps a dig at the club itself but there is some truth in what he says.
16/05/2012 15:55:00
PC, I agree with you on the twitter morons, but your fans at the Emirates should be indicative of the ill feeling that was shown towards him, at times hardcore hostility. I think his comment: "I now hope the Arsenal FANS can get on with their lives and forget me, they should celebrate their third-place achievement and I will focus upon winning titles" is very obvious that this is an attack on the fans and not your manager or players. Having said that, he does seem to have a pop at "People at Arsenal...", but I doubt you or I can comment on what, if anything, was said between Nasri and people at the club. Other than that, I see no disrespect to Wenger or the clubs players...
