Here are the best jokes as Arsène Wenger blames home fans for Arsenal’s failed title challenge, citing a “difficult climate” at the Emirates.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference for this weekend’s home game against Norwich, where there are expected to be protests, Wenger claimed that some supporters had been “manipulated” into opposing him.
He also said that his Gunners would have won the title based on their away form alone, despite the fact that they only have the third best away record in the Premier League – in fact they’ve picked up seven points less on the road than runaway leaders Leicester.
With Arsenal supporters likely to be incensed by news that Wenger blames home fans for the team’s woes, here is a selection of the best jokes:

Too many injuries
Teams no longer not turning up

Wenger is defecting any kind of blame to anyone he can. Can't wait until he says it was the groundsman decision to sub Giroud vs Chelsea.

How can Arsene question the supporters? We booed Higuain at the Emirates Cup because we couldn't agree a fee for him. Best fans in Europe.

This quote is bang on the money: "Wenger is the most insightful man in football," one of his friends likes to say. "Except about Arsenal."
