When Harry Kane slotted home his penalty past Petr Cech to set Tottenham on their way towards finishing above Arsenal for the first time in 22 years, the social media slating began.
Called a variety of names on the internet – St. Woolwich’s Day and Goonsday among the most memorable – it was the moment Spurs fans had waited for after years in Arsenal’s shadow, and they wanted to make the best of it.
The usual mix of irony, photoshopping and plain old trolling began – exacerbated by Arsenal fans being infamous for their very vocal nature on social media.
Zapsortz chief feature writer Harry Harris says a campaign should be launched to eradicate such online abuse – and calls on all clubs to play their part.
Harry says: “I hope Arsenal are going to do something about all this mickey taking. It’s outrageous and uncalled for. Awful. And should be banned forthwith.”
