Arsenal Football Club is a professional football club based in Islington, London, England, that plays in the Premier League, the top flight of English football. The most successful London club, they have won 13 League titles (including one unbeaten league title), a record 13 FA Cups, two League Cups, 15 FA Community Shields, the League Centenary Trophy, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and one Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

Being an Arsenal fan is often a frustrating experience. The Gunners endured almost an entire decade without silverware before lifting the FA Cup in 2014, in which period they became the infuriating "nearly men" of the Premier League.

Even since ending their trophy drought, the Gunners still have the potential to irritate their own fans. Take the manner in which they started the season: After a summer of hubristic hype, they lost their opening encounter at home to West Ham.

Here are the seven most frustrating things about being an Arsenal fan right now.

Being an Arsenal fan is often a frustrating experience. The Gunners endured almost an entire decade without silverware before lifting the FA Cup in 2014, in which period they became the infuriating "nearly men" of the Premier League.

Even since ending their trophy drought, the Gunners still have the potential to irritate their own fans. Take the manner in which they started the season: After a summer of hubristic hype, they lost their opening encounter at home to West Ham.

The seven most frustrating things about being an Arsenal fan right now.

1 Arsenal’s undoing in 2014/15 was their failure to start the season well. The Gunners won just two of their opening eight games, handing Chelsea a lead that proved insurmountable. Given that, it felt essential that they began this Premier League campaign strongly. Instead, they turned in a nervous display in a dispiriting 2-0 defeat to West Ham. Losing the three points is bad enough. However, the most damaging aspect of the defeat is the way it’s slowed Arsenal’s momentum at the outset of a new campaign. Although they followed up with a win over Crystal Palace, Gunners supporters will understandably be disappointed not to have taken six points from their first two fixtures.


2 When Petr Cech arrived at Arsenal from Chelsea this summer, he was widely hailed as the man who could turn the Gunners into legitimate title-challengers. However, his early form for Arsenal has been far from convincing. Thus far, Cech has been more of a problem than a panacea. He made two costly mistakes in the West Ham match and might have got down quicker to prevent Crystal Palace’s equaliser at Selhurst Park. A couple of stuttering performances do not make Cech a bad goalkeeper. However, the point of signing a goalkeeper with bags of Premier League experience is that he ought to be capable of hitting the ground running. Thus far, Cech has struggled to replicate his Chelsea form in an Arsenal shirt.


3 Against Crystal Palace, Arsene Wenger decided to withdraw Francis Coquelin to avoid the risk of him receiving a second yellow card. Although Mikel Arteta fared relatively well as his replacement, Gunners fans will wish Wenger had a more convincing alternative at his disposal. Neither Arteta nor Mathieu Flamini have the physicality and ball-winning ability to match Coquelin’s contribution. At present, the younger Frenchman is absolutely integral to Arsenal’s hopes. With the transfer window close to closing, Arsenal supporters are tearing their hair out at Wenger’s refusal to recruit a suitable back-up.


4 There is arguably no Arsenal player more frustrating than Jack Wilshere. He has bundles of talent, but just can’t seem to put together a run of fitness and thus form. His latest injury is simply the last in a long line of problems. Many Arsenal fans must now be beginning to question whether or not Wilshere will ever fulfil his enormous potential. Every injury has a knock-on effect that extends beyond his period on the sidelines. When Wilshere does eventually return, it will take him some time to regain the sharpness required of a Premier League midfielder. Wilshere’s season has been derailed before it ever begun.


5 Arsene Wenger has a troubling tendency to tinker with his team at the start of the season. Last season, he sought to employ a 4-1-4-1 system that enabled him to field Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil in the same starting XI. This time around, he made the baffling call to move Santi Cazorla out of the centre for the first Premier League fixture against West Ham. Cazorla was ineffective out wide, and Wenger rectified his mistake for the second match away to Crystal Palace. Hopefully the Arsenal boss has learnt his lesson. Playing Cazorla in the middle was a hugely effective tactic last term—and if it isn’t broke, he shouldn’t attempt to fix it.


6 Despite his acrobatic goal against Crystal Palace, Olivier Giroud’s limitations remain one of the most frustrating elements of this Arsenal team. For a set of fans who were once accustomed to watching Thierry Henry in his pomp, the lumbering Giroud is a rather different proposition. With a couple of weeks still left in the transfer window, many Arsenal fans will be hoping that Arsene Wenger can unearth a striker with the pace and consistency in front of goal that Giroud lacks. Alexis Sanchez’s Schedule

7 There’s nothing more frustrating than something beyond your control, and Arsenal fans will be understandably annoyed by Alexis Sanchez’s hectic schedule over the past year. After following up the 2014 World Cup with a gruelling Premier League campaign, Alexis then led Chile to victory in the Copa America this summer. That meant he returned to preseason training late and was not fit for the start of the league season. Alexis is arguably Arsenal’s most important player, so not having him available will have been hugely irritating to the Arsenal faithful.

"Abolutely Useless. Ordered an item for Arsenal and DPD to have no idea where it went, Even after a week still no idea. Arsenal said it had been returned to them and over 2 weeks later still no refund. I ordered for the second time only for it to be ready for shipping for over a week but never sent. Finally after zero updates unless you call several times to speak to a moron, I was assured it was being sent out that day over a week later. the next day I get a simple email saying my order was cancelled. Plus i'm still waiting for for my original refund. Incompetent staff that just seem to like having a laugh thinking there in control. Utterly useless cowboys"

Wiskers says

"The Arsenal Direct Online Store is run about as well as the football club atm. I've ordered items over a week ago now - safe to assume you order items 14 days before, they'd arrive by Christmas, right? Well not with Arsenal Direct. 3 'working' days left to the 25th, and my order hasn't inched past "processing" still. Especially wound up, as they state 3-5 working days delivery on the website. I should have ordered direct from the kit sponsor!"

Amanda Hathaway says

"THANK YOU TO ARSENAL AND THE SURPRISE YOU RUINED!! Ordered a Vintage long sleeved top and other bits. I wrote very clearly, that it was a gift. The postman knocked and handed the parcel to my partner. In bright red Arsenal bag!!! I saved for ages, for these gifts and you have completely ruined it for my partner. Upset is not the word!!!!"

Gresham Gattuso says

"Easily the worst run club in top flight europe. Everyone knows there business but to cheap to get it over the line. Stuck with dud players noone wants yet sell or loan out our best players. If you make decisions quit. Kroenkes suck we will never forget your names trash. Kroenke = cheap steal money from afc to pay for 5 billion stadium. But cant make essential signings dont come to london you gonna hear it from us."

Adam says

"I ordered a new kit for my son with his name on the back and when it arrived the names was off centre on top the number. The package came with a card that said that if you are unhappy with you purchase for any reason do not hesitate to contact them. When I contacted them they basically agreed with me and then told me that any replacement would look the exact same so they weren’t going to offer me a new one. For the price that you pay these days for a kit you’d expect it to be perfect. It wasn’t. I’ll never order from the club directly again. You can get a better printed fake kit. I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone."

Andi Simester says

"Shambolic customer service. £5 delivery which they state within 5 days. In today’s world 5 days is way more than average, charging delivery while charging the customer premium prices is also taking advantage. Purchased direct to support direct rather than third party. Wanted the delivery to arrive pre game (6 days ordered prior) arrived day 8. Do not bother go direct to Adidas."

Samuli says

"Unprofessional rubbish. Enjoy your brexit."

Adam Hemmings says

"Please bring a proper manager in this man Couldn’t run a tap"

Asad says

"Has Wenger left yet? I am not too sure looking at the recent performances!"

Roger says

"Not happy at all"

SeekerTom says

"Need a new manager quick."

Wendy Darling says

"Perhaps a plain parcel at Christmas. Surprise was ruined with Arsenal splashed all over the bag. Quality of merchandise is fab though so you are forgiven ( and that's generous as I support Spurs)."
