Twitter reacts to dramatic start to Arsenal vs Bayern Munich - Anti-Arsene Wenger protest, Bayern fans protest and toilet papers thrown on the pitch
The UEFA Champions League clash between Arsenal and Bayern Munich had the perfect build-up after the reported training ground bust-up between Alexis Sanchez and some of his teammates. The drama heightened as we neared kickoff with a bunch of around 500 Arsenal fans protesting outside the stadium calling for the exit of their manager Arsene Wenger, with loud and clear #WengerOut chants.
Then just before kick-off the Bayern Munich fans protested due to the high ticket cost at the Emirates stadium – which to be exact was £64. They then threw toilet papers at the ground – which interrupted play following a slow start.
To make matters further interesting, the Gunners were 1-0 up at half-time against the Bavarians. However, they still have to score 3 more goals to qualify for the next round – a rather Herculean task. And, in case I missed it – which I did – Danny Welbeck was due to start but got injured in the warm-up – how Arsenal of him – and Olivier Giroud had to start instead.
Twitter, as you would expect, didn’t hold back after that dramatic start:
The drama before the kickoff
It is hope that kills you....
And Welbeck is injured...
And then the in-game protest begins.. but before that
And some Piers Morgan
Ohh Arsenal fans!
And then the truth!
