Thierry Henry has called on Arsenal's fans to keep believing in their team.
Striker Henry flew to America on Friday to rejoin New York Red Bulls after his close-season loan back to the Gunners finished with THAT humiliating defeat to AC Milan.
The result prompted some fans to question manager Arsene Wenger's future, but Henry insists they must stick behind the team.
The Arsenal icon, 34, said: "The difference is how this team can react and I think this team can do that.
"We realise it is going to be a hell of a task, but who knows? The Sunderland [FA Cup] game is just around the corner, so we have to go there and win.
"You have to remember that you go through moments where it is not always nice.
"If you are an Arsenal fan, then you are an Arsenal fan, that's the way it is. Once a Gunner, you are always a Gunner. You can't change.
"I can't talk for people whose families have supported Arsenal for ever, but I am sure if you talk to their parents, and their parents too, they will tell you to enjoy this generation because they had some bad moments.
"I am sure the fans will understand that they have to stay with the team.
"We all need to be together, because it's the same when the team is winning and also when you lose."
