Nasri cranks up heat ahead of Arsenal clash

Samir Nasri has hardly endeared himself to Arsenal fans since leaving. His latest outburst will ensure more boos come his way.

However, he hasn't actually called Arsenal fans 'stupid', despite the lurid headlines in the newspapers.

What he has said is the abuse he receives is 'stupid', and I can't help but agree with that.

Personally, I don't believe abusing an opponent works: rather than having a subduing effect, often it lifts them.

Nevertheless, Nasri will get excessive abuse as emotions are still running high about his acrimonious departure.

Let's not forget, the club made a profit of Nasri, so he's not quite the devil he's made out to be.
