Thousands of Arsenal fans were this morning still running away with their hands on their ears screaming “it’s happening again” having fled the Emirates shortly before full time against Anderlecht.
The Gunners were cruising at 3-0 up in last night’s Champions League clash before cruising their way straight through the kind of classic Arsenal capitulation to rival those 4-4 draws against Newcastle and Spurs.
FROM THE VAULTS: Top ten Arsenal capitulations
A last-gasp Anderlecht equaliser sparked flashbacks for a number of Arsenal fans, whose immediate response was uniformly to embark on a panicked frenzy of self-flagellation with outbreaks of looting.
The result left Arsenal staring slightly stalled Champions League group stage qualification in the face, and many of their fans facing anxious waits for madness-stricken relatives return from their petrified dashes.
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, one of the runners’ wives revealed herself to be “bloody livid but also concerned”.
She said: “I’m bloody livid but also concerned.
“What if he just keeps running haphazardly until he collides with something? He could be badly bruised.
“If he thinks he can just charge about looting and self-flagellating every time Arsenal blow a three- or four-goal lead, he’s got another thing coming.”
