The incident did not delay the match.Emery remarked afterwards, “No change for us but we know there were some problems here with the club’s supporters and the club, but from us there is respect, respect to them, to the club, to the supporters and to the team. We prepared for the match with this respect also for this competition. I think that the 90 minutes against a competitive team also, I think we can watch a big match I think for them and for us.”I cannot say a lot for this situation. Only respect and I want to find a solution for the problem they have, the supporters of the team and the club here.”Blackpool fans currently stopping the Arsenal team bus from leaving their hotel to get to Bloomfield Road for this evenings FA Cup tie #protestspic.twitter.com/GC330zeyKJ— Ged Mills (@GedMills) January 5, 2019 About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img
