A frustrating few months has culminated in Arsenal being ejected from the FA Cup by Watford, and the fans have clearly been driven to the brink of insanity. Tempers were at breaking point following the hugely disappointing 2-1 loss at the Emirates, and a number of Arsenal fans were caught on camera fighting in the aftermath.

This season looked like it could be a fantastic opportunity for us, with a number of the big boys struggling in the Premier League and several of our big competitors crashed out of the FA Cup. We’ve obviously blown our chances in the cup though, and may well have left ourselves with too much to do in the league.
Our poor performances have obviously taken their toll on a number of Arsenal fans, consequently driving them to violence.
That said, while we don’t know the whole story behind the brawl, there’s really no excuse for this kind of behaviour. Arsenal have been hugely disappointing this season, but that’s still no reason to be getting into fights, especially with your fellow Gooners.
Arsenal transfer news
- Arsenal vs Crystal Palace predicted line up: Patrick Vieira returns
- Arsenal ready a £25million bid for a ‘rising star’ of Dutch football
- Arsene Wener to return to dugout since leaving Arsenal in 2018
We’re still potentially in with a chance of lifting the Premier League trophy, and hopefully by the end of the season the fans will be celebrating with each other rather than fighting amongst themselves.
