Piers Morgan goes on 17 tweet rampage about Arsenal

We all know Piers Morgan is not Arsene Wenger's biggest fan. The Good Morning Britain host has long been a committed member of the #WengerOut brigade and those feelings only appear to have grown stronger in recent weeks.

Arsenal have gone completely off the rails, winning only three of their last nine Premier League games and falling behind Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester City to be sitting in their favourite position.

Fans are obviously not happy, but Friday's pre-match press conference appears to have taken things to a whole new level. Wenger spoke to the press ahead of Arsenal's penultimate home game against Norwich City and caused quite a stir with these comments:

"We lost the championship at home against the lower teams, but we played at home in a very difficult climate. We have to realise that, away from home, we are championship winners. At home, against the smaller teams, we lost the league.

"This club does have special values though and one I've experienced over the years is to stick together and support the team. There's no success without that."

Plenty of people have since taken that to mean that Wenger blames the Emirates crowd for Arsenal's failure to win the title. The discord that regularly rings out around the 60,000-seater stadium may well have had a negative effect against teams like Swansea, where they lost 2-1, and West Ham, 2-0. At least, that is what Wenger was insinuating.

But like many fans, Morgan, a shareholder with the club, was having none of it and took all of 17 tweets to get his message across. We have inserted each and every one of the tweets below for you to enjoy.

So enjoy it!


Morgan probably won't be joining the Black Scarf Movement or the Arsenal Supporters' Trust as they hold up their pieces of paper at the Emirates tomorrow but those that do can be sure he is with them in spirit.

The body of supporters have urged fans to hold up signs saying 'time for change' twice during the game and once after the final whistle. Wenger, rather fruitless we imagine, has asked them to postpone the protest and support the team.

"I can understand the frustration," Wenger said. "No one is more frustrated than me, but our disappointment has not to go too far.

"When a club cannot enjoy anything anymore, it is in trouble, and we have to not forget that in football you go down very quickly and you come up very slowly."
