Wenger Didn't Like Brown Chants, I Loved Them

Wenger Didn't Like Brown Chants, I Loved Them

Saturday saw the return of the infamous Phil 'Tango' Brown for the first time since the controversial FA Cup match earlier in the year.

After Arsenal emerged victorious with a contentious William Gallas goal, Phil Brown falsely accused Fabregas of blatantly lied about Cesc Fabregas spitting in the face of at the feet of assistant manager, Brian Horton, on the pitch in the players tunnel to which there were plenty of witnesses no witnesses whatsoever.

One common denominator about all football fans all over the world is that they never forget. They'll never forget a treacherous tackle, a disloyal player or a ridiculously orange football manager who wears a head set for no discernable reason issuing slanderous statements about their team's captain, their manager or their club as a whole.

So it came as no surprise the Phil Brown came in for a fair bit of stick on his return to the Grove this weekend. Chants such as 'You're getting tanned in the morning', 'Liar, what's the score, liar liar what's the score' and 'Cesc in a minute, you're seeing Cesc in a minute' were either clearly audible, or widely reported amongst Gooners after the game.

Arsene Wenger, rather gallantly, has come out in the defence of the Hull City manager, saying he doesn't agree with what was said, and that somethings are best left forgotten.

'I don't like that at all, I don't agree with it at all.' said Wenger

'Once again, I'm a guy who can have something happen which is very bad and the next day I've forgotten about it. I'm not someone who remembers things for six months.'

It's an admirable trait from the professor, but from where I stand most of the chants were in good humour, and Brown should count himself lucky that he only had to endure the wrath of the good natured Gooners, because as I'm sure Wenger himself could attest, things could have been much much worse.

I've always maintained that Arsenal fans are the funniest in the world ...... this just confirms it.

Brilliant, they were all in good humour and, really, if you're going to blatantly lie about a side's club captain you've got to expect it. In fairness, Brown seemed to take it on the chin well enough. This is one of the things that makes going to football so worthwhile. My favourite was "You're not very Brown." For me though, the best mickey taking Arsenal chant ever was aimed at our neighbours when Venables was sacked by Sugar in 1993, "A spoonful of Sugar helps the Venables go down, in the most delightful way."

Spoonfull of sugar one was pure class. Gotta say if we're broadening the scale my favourite one is to the manics 'and if you tolerate Rix, then your children will be next'.

another admirable trait is the professors ability to not see anything controversial against his team.

That's because we never do anything wrong. We're saints, the rest of you are pure evil. Simple.

To be fair, he can hardly come out and say "Nice one lads, me and Pat were filling our grundies out there, could barely concentrate on the game we were in fits." Still gave us a coy little wave after the "Arsene give us a wave, Arsene Arsene give us a wave" which is all that matters. Saturday was gooners at their most playful, all the chants were in great humour with no malice. Let's face it Brown is such a joke he needs little help from us. That photo above FFS! Missed one chance on Saturday - a chant out to the tune of hokey cokey "Oh your karaoke, oh your karaoke, oh your karoke, made you look like a tw*t tw*t tw*t"

Wenger was probably having a good chuckle inside and hiding it with his professionalism :P

According to FatOldDave of Goonerholic fame who was sat near the oppo bench, even the Hull back room staff and subs were laughing at the chants.
