Arsenal anger fans shutting down official online chat room

Arsenal have left their fans fuming with plans to shutdown the club's online chat room.

The Mirror reports Arsenal have announced plans to close down the chat room on their official website.

And hundreds of Gooners responded in fury to the decision to dump the "Your Arsenal" site from July 18.

Explaining the decision, the site moderator cited the evolution of Facebook and Twitter.

But a week after open dissent directed at chief executive Ivan Gazidis at a fans' forum, furious supporters accused the club of attempting to gag critics after the forum became a focus for dissent at the lack of success.

One fan slated: "The forum will probably reappear when we eventually win a title. I reckon it's now run by rose-tinters who can't and won't accept any dissent."
