"Still out with loads of gooner in shadow of Emirates. Those who go home and away are voice on future of Arsenal. Not 606 or twitter muppets"
These are the words of Tim Payton, a board member of the AST (Arsenal Supporters Trust), taken from Twitter last night. If these were the words of an individual Gooner who was nothing to do with the AST then it would be one thing, but they are an absolute disgrace for someone who is the official 'spokesperson' for the AST.
There are so many deeply disturbing elements to the views of Tim Payton. All Arsenal fans should have a say, who is anyone to judge who has more right than others? The arrogance and condescending nature of Payton's comments are utterly deplorable.
I will not rant on because Tim Payton's words tell the story beautifully, they tell the story of someone who is clearly not fit to be representing the AST, a man who seems to have a massively inflated opinion of himself and his own views, a man who has embarrassed himself massively with his comments and his complete failure to apologise to the massive number of loyal Gooners who he has shown such contempt for.
As a Fanshare member I shall be writing to the AST to express my opinion on their spokesperson's arrogant and senseless comments. Tim Payton should do the right thing, he should either apologise properly to those supporters who has has offended, or he should resign from the AST. The choice is yours Tim, show some backbone and moral fibre for once, do the right thing.
