Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta, who lost the championship due to poor results at the end of the season, became a mockery of Manchester City fans. Although there was no game, Man City fans who confirmed the championship celebrated the victory with empty water bottles in front of the home stadium. This was the mockery towards Arsenal and Arteta.
The Daily Star reported on the 21st that “Man City fans congratulated themselves on winning the Premier League and mocked Arsenal with an empty bottle.”
Arsenal collapsed 0-1 to Nottingham Forest in the 37th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at the City Ground in Nottingham, England on the morning of the 21st. Arsenal, who failed to add points, went on to win the championship regardless of their performance in the remaining game. Arsenal, who had been in first place throughout the season, had to be satisfied with second place due to poor performance in April and May.
On the other hand, Manchester City took first place. As Arsenal failed to add points, Man City, which is facing Chelsea, automatically confirmed the championship. Recently achieved the feat of 3 consecutive defeats.
When Manchester City’s victory was confirmed, fans flocked to the Etihad Stadium to celebrate their third consecutive victory. In particular, the media reported that some fans mocked Arsenal with empty bottles while celebrating their victory.
Why did you mock Arsenal for holding an empty water bottle? In soccer, there is a term called ‘bottle job’. It means ‘a football player or football team who blows a lead under constant pressure’. It means that you can’t lose a victory or lift a championship cup because you make a mistake at the crucial moment or last minute.
Arsenal have been called ‘Bottle Job Champions’ this season. Recently, The Sun published an article titled ‘Arsenal is the bottle job world champion’. It was introduced as a ‘fool team’ that ran first in the league for a long time this season, but failed to win the final.
According to The Sun’s report, Arsenal has been synonymous with a team that repeats the nightmare of losing the championship after being in first place throughout the season for the past 30 years in the English Premier League, but overturning at the last minute.
Especially this season. According to statistics released by Sportbible, Arsenal have led the league for a whopping 93% of the time this season. But the title was up to Manchester City. Arsenal is the only team in the history of the Premier League who has not won the title after running at the top for such a long time.
In fact, Arsenal were famous for not being able to finish behind. Arsenal also holds the previous dishonorable record. In the 2002–03 season, Arsenal were in the lead for 71% of the season. However, Man United’s pursuit eventually blew the championship by 5 points. This record was broken by Arsenal this season.메이저사이트
On the other hand, Man City is currently undefeated in 14 consecutive matches and has achieved 3 consecutive league titles with a ‘reversal win’.
While Man City won three consecutive titles with a monster named Elling Holland, Arsenal is the ‘best bottler in the league’ who has a chronic disease that cannot overcome the last hurdle. Fans and media think.
So Manchester City fans celebrated their victory with empty water bottles to mock Arsenal for missing the championship.
