What a great pity that a tiny minority have managed to drag Villa fans names into the gutter this weekend and that the incident is being blown out of all proportion.
The club unfortunately sold tickets for the Arsenal game to all comers instead of giving the season ticket holders and regular away fans the usual first call on tickets - a mistake I'm sure and one that hopefully won't be repeated.
Anyway, a very few 'fans' taunted Arsenal fans over the horrific injury Eduardo picked up in their game last weekend v Blues leading to some Arsenal fans reacting furiously and being ejected.
When asked Martin O'Neill said 'If that is true, then I am desperately disappointed by that' and Arsene Wenger said 'unfortunately there are no limits to either intelligence or stupidity'
Some Arsenal fans have been generalising against us all and I have to be honest, I don't think it is right to tarnish all Villa (or any other) fans with the same brush, this isn't the majority of fans and most I'm sure wish Eduardo a very speedy return to the playing field where he belongs.
I would also point out that ALL clubs have these sort of fans, Arsenal included. For instance three Arsenal fans are suing their own for the songs sung against Spurs about the Holocaust.
Hopefully Arsene's comments about no limits to intelligence or stupidity count for those examples as well, I am sure they do.
It is a shame that this is being discussed instead of a good game!
