11 times ArsenalFanTV made regular supporters question everything they know about football... and life


It's the intriguing internet phenomenon that's been providing social media with weekly chuckles since 2012 – many of which you'll find right here 

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

If the Gunners were top of the league, still in Europe and not stuck in a Groundhog Day-like cycle of repeated mediocrity, would ArsenalFanTV be enjoying the kind of national success it is now? 

Almost certainly not. Which begs the question: does owner and presenter Robbie quietly want his team to lose? If he does, he'll have been smiling a lot recently. (As one YouTube commenter noted recently: "He'll probably be on the Sunday Times Rich List soon.")

Arsenal's 5-1 humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich (10-2 on aggregate) followed a 3-1 loss to Liverpool at the weekend in which Alexis Sanchez was dropped by Arsene Wenger. It's the latter who ArsenalFanTV regulars blame for European exits, stockpiling transfer funds and seemingly everything else from Donald Trump's election victory to global warming. They were probably frantically emailing Netflix to point the finger at the Frenchman during the Making a Murderer craze, too. 

Many supporters are embarrassed by the vocal 'Wenger Out' brigade, but for the rest of us it's essential post-Arsenal viewing. When the north Londoners go a few goals behind, the Michael Jackson popcorn GIFs come out and everyone knows there's a treat in store.

1. Talk about net spend

Don't let the big money shelled out on Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Shkodran Mustafi and Granit Xhaka fool you, people – because Moh has got it all worked out. It's not about transfer spend, after all, it's about NET spend. Award him the Nobel Prize for Economics already. Also, the YouTuber who added David Brent to the end of this clip gets full marks. 

2. When it all gets too much

Olivier Giroud starting up front and wearing a silly grin on his face was enough to bring tears from this fully-grown man. The French striker is unquestionably beautiful, so perhaps he once broke Anthony's heart – it’s the only explanation.

3. ArsenalFanTV with the useless words removed

Every single word from Troopz's rant has been deleted bar the 'fams' and the 'bluds'. It's still 36 seconds long. The count is well over 100.
