Arsenal fans frantically search for ‘Arteta Out’ banners in cupboard

Ah, it's been too long...


Arsenal fans are bringing the ‘Arteta Out’ banners out of mothballs following last night’s 4-1 mauling at the hands of title rivals Manchester City.

The banners were a common sight on matchdays at the Emirates during the early days of Arteta’s reign, but they were consigned to storage when it appeared the Spaniard might deliver Arsenal’s first league title since 2004.

It was only last month that the Premier League title looked destined for the Emirates but a dip in form has seen the Gunners go four league games without a win at a crucial stage of the season.

Arsenal’s slump means the title is no longer in their hands and fans of the North London club have decided it’s time to bring their Arteta Out banners out of storage.

‘It might need a quick ironing’, one Gunners fans told Paddy Power News while unfurling his creased banner.

‘Trust the process? Na, Pep’s waterboy never had me fooled’.

‘Even when we scored those last-minute goals against United, Villa and Bournemouth, I still never thought we were good enough to go on and win it’, he said, while throwing his ‘Arsenal Premier League Champions 2022/23’ t-shirt in the bin.

Asked to describe the ‘Arteta Out’ movement in comparative terms, the Gunners fan explained:

‘It’s a bit like the United fans with their green and yellow scarves. When things are going well on the pitch, they’re nowhere to be seen’.

‘But a few bad results and you couldn’t tell if you were at Old Trafford or Carrow Road’.

Meanwhile, there is growing concern for the whereabouts of Piers Morgan following last night’s result at the Etihad.

The 58-year-old, last seen bragging on Twitter about Arsenal’s title credentials, has been missing since Erling Haaland scored his 49th City goal of the season to seal the game.

Police are said to be treating the situation as hilarious.
