AFTV lose their sh*t as Arsenal fall to a 1-0 defeat to Burnley

AFTV lose their sh*t as Arsenal fall to a shock 1-0 defeat to Burnley in the late Sunday night kick off in the Premier League.

The Gunners continue what has turned out to be a dreadful season and now it’s gone from bad to worse after losing 1-0 to Sean Dyche’s side at the Emirates Stadium.

To make things even more miserable, Granit Xhaka was sent off and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ended up scoring an own goal, of all the players to do that ay?!

Mikel Arteta’s side currently sit 15th in the Premier League table and had been looking to get a more positive result from last week’s defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

However Josh Brownhill’s second half header ricocheted off Aubameyang and past a helpless Bernd Leno, to put five points ahead of the relegation zone in the Premier League table.

Xhaka received a red card for putting his hands on Ashley Westwood’s throat. AFTV were watching along and they were devastated at what they were seeing.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, speaking to Sky Sports: “You saw the performance of the boys, how much they wanted it, the chances we created and then we threw the game away with the red card.

“We had total control for 60-70 minutes and should have won it earlier.”

On the sending off: “Same words [as when Pepe was sent off before]. In these conditions even worse. I think it is related into how much will and energy they put into the games but it is not an excuse. I am sure he will [say my fault].

“You go on Wednesday against Southampton at home and try to win the game. We have to score a goal, we have to put the ball in the net.

“We were on top from the beginning to the moment of the sending off. We are not winning football matches and I am here to provide wins. Everyday work on it.”

The Gunners have had their worst start to the season in 39 years and manager Mikel Arteta seemingly issued world’s first come-and-sack-me plea after a defeat to Wolves in November.

“It’s something that the day I decided to be a coach I know that one day I will be sacked or leave the football club,” said Arteta.

“I don’t know if it’s the day after I sign my contract, in a month’s time, a year’s time or six months’ time. I never worry about it.

“My only concern is to get the best out of the players, give the best possible service to the club and become better and better.

“I know, I repeat, in this profession, one day I will get the sack or leave but I don’t know when that is going to happen.”

It comes days after fans took to mock ‘angry’ Ty from AFTV (aka Arsenal Fan TV) as a social media video goes viral of him on a bus with school kids.

The diehard Arsenal fan is alleged to have been recorded on video with Twitter users saying that he is beefing a youngster after they had said that Arsenal was shit.

Now for those who are unsure what beefing means, it’s a slang word for a source of disagreement; a feud. Just had to make that one clear.

“Ty” or real name Taiwo Ogunlabi) is described to be very optimistic and is well known for his support of Arsène Wenger. Ty constantly defended Wenger during his tenure as manager despite facing growing opposition from supporters.

He remains part of the AFTV – Arsenal Fan TV group, who have pulled in a total of 1.25 million subscribers since their launch in 2012.

Every time the Gunners had a disappointing result, straight would be fans of any club to watch the contributors flip out.

And that’s exactly what Ty chose to do at the slightest of insults, causing quite a scene on the coach ride to wherever he was off to.

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope said after his side’s win against Arsenal: “Over the last few years we have come close when we have come here to beat them but this felt like the right night and we picked out opportunities. We have put together some good opportunities now.

“There were a couple that were close to me and I had covered. It was nice to get on the end of a few saves and the clean sheet is massive for us.

“Sometimes when a team goes down to 10 men it is difficult because the expectation changes. It was probably the changing moment of the game with the momentum and after that I think we calmed it down.

“No-one wants to look at the TV and see yourself below the dotted line so it is nice but there is a long way to go.”

Burnley boss Sean Dyche, speaking to BBC Sport: “It is tough coming here. There is a lot of noise around them but they still have some very good players.

“Arsenal just got their feel in the game until the sending off, they responded well to that and had a couple of chances but then we calmed the game down and got ourselves the winner.

“In the modern game, it is so soft now the modern game, it has to be given. I am amazed the second was not a sending off, you can’t just push someone in the face.

“I still felt we could have managed the game better towards the end but we are building out of a tough start so I am not going to question them on that too much.

“As the group has got stronger physically with players coming back from injury and getting fully fit we are beginning to get to the right levels.”

Arsenal full-back Kieran Tierney, speaking to Sky Sports: “We are not showing the manager what we can do and how much we believe in him. Every game there are signs we are doing a bit better but it is still not good enough. At half time we need to be going in in the lead but we are not doing that.

“It is hard to say the red card cost us the game. It was always going to be a lot tougher.

“Hard work is the only thing [that can fix this], nothing else for it. There are no excuses. There is nothing I can say that will make people believe a positive thing is going to come out of this.

“We are lucky we have a great manager. We just need to show better on the pitch.”

On boos at full time: “It was deserved. They are coming out here and supporting us.”
