Controversial YouTube channel ArsenalFanTV is in meltdown this evening, following Arsenal’s recent run of good form.
The Gunners have enjoyed wins over AC Milan (both home and away), Watford and Stoke in recent games, and led CSKA Moscow 4-1 at halftime in their Europa League quarter-final clash.
And following their fine performance against the Russian giants, AFTV presenter Robbie Lyle and his mates Claude, Ty and Troopz – who usually congregate outside the Emirates stadium after a match, donned in Arsenal merchandise – have decided against filming a post-game fan reaction and instead headed to the nearest pub to actually enjoy themselves.
Long-time AFTV fan Lee Satchell, who claims he has Thierry Henry’s face tattooed ‘somewhere sensitive’, said: “Usually, Robbie and the boys leave their seats with about 10 minutes of the match remaining to set-up their cameras and have a moan, but they actually stayed until the very end.
“I even saw them singing ‘there’s only one Arsene Wenger’ at the top of their voices, I couldn’t believe it.”
With the Gunners facing lowly Southampton at the weekend ahead of their trip to Moscow for the away leg, many at AFTV fear this run could continue.
Satchell added: “This could be the end of the channel. I mean, if Arsenal start winning reguarly, what do they have to talk about?”
But with the Gunners poised to face someone like Leipzig or Atletico Madrid in the next round, many believe this is just a blip and Arsenal fans will have something to be angry about again very soon.
