Arsenal have had a bad start to the season: 8-2 away to Manchester United, 1-2 away to bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur and 0-2 at home to Liverpool are not the results a Champions League contender would like to have. Although Arsenal's fortunes have improved recently, the horrific start to the season remains fresh in the minds of fans around the world.
Whenever a team has a patch of bad form, the fans have a set of scapegoats who are often heralded as players who should immediately leave the club. Sometimes, these are knee-jerk reactions which are repelled by the players in question over time. However, most players that fans abuse often deserve it.
This is also the case with Arsenal this season. Sebastien Squillaci, Johan Djourou, Manuel Almunia and Marouane Chamakh have all been vilified, and rightly so. All of them have had horrific seasons and need to leave Arsenal football club.
