Arsenal has released a statement after a message on their club shop appeared to mock rivals, Tottenham.
The Gunners have a fierce rivalry with their London neighbours and fans enjoy trolling Spurs for their lack of trophies.
To the surprise of many Gooners, a fan revealed on social media that if you have an empty cart on the Gunners’ website, a message would read:
‘Your basket is empty as Tottenham’s trophy cabinet’. This went viral on the internet and the Gunners have been forced to react to it.
The Daily Mail says they have released a statement which reads: ‘This was posted to the site in error without appropriate checks and approvals and is being removed as quickly as possible.’
The club has also since removed the message from its website.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Fans enjoy trolling each other on the internet, but when a football club is involved it is even more delightful.
While we have won a number of trophies, Spurs are still struggling to win any trophy for well over a decade now.
They have finished ahead of us on the league table in some of the last few seasons, but we remain the only side that knows how to win trophies in north London.
Mikel Arteta will be keen to lead his team to finish this season ahead of the Lilywhites.
love it hahahahahhaha
Please God don’t say our club has joined the WOKE movement, where a minor insult has to be humbly apologised for and never repeated . As a true liberal thinking person, I find this wokery the very opposite of true liberalism.
WOKE IS DEEPLY AND SINISTERLY ILLIBERAL, AS I HAVE BEEN REPEATEDLY TELLING THE WORLD AND ITS DOG FOR AGES AND WILL GO ON DOING SO.
In theory I agree with you Jon, but whoever thought it was a bright ides to mock Spurs at club level made a silly error. Of course it’s funny but inappropriate. Delighted Spurs lost last night but should they win the FA Cup this year and finish 4th, then would ridiculing them have been worth it?
Sue , But what possible difference to future results will that mocking make!? I firmly say it will have zero effect, in either direction.
Provided that banter is not malicious, sick, abusive, racist or filthy mouthed it has an important part to play in how fans talk and write about fans and players of other teams.
Just as it has done for many decades and hopeful will continue so, ad infinitum.
Loved ❤️ it with all my heart ❤️ banterism!!! Coyg!!!
