Piers Morgan vs David Beckham

Celebrity Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan was fuming after David Beckham criticized the Gunners supporters’ protest against Arsene Wenger following their FA Cup exit.

The north Londoners were thrown out of the FA Cup by Watford on Sunday afternoon and Arsene Wenger’s position at the Emirates has been facing fierce questions from some portions of the club’s fan base.

Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal for 19 long years and the club are all set to finish this season empty-handed after a poor run of form despite once in a position to win the Premier League.

The FA Cup remained only firewall preventing Wenger from renewed scrutiny and now that firewall has collapsed after the latest defeat. It leaves a serious question mark over Arsene Wenger and his future at Emirates. Is he still the right person to guide the team?

Many fans don’t even want to discuss it, and while he is still clearly a good manager, his failings are clear to see and are for sure harming the club.

However, Beckham showed his support behind Wenger yesterday when he responded to an Instagram post which asked whether a banner asking the French manager to leave Arsenal was disrespectful or truthful.

The former England skipper labelled the supporter’s sign “disgraceful” and alleged the fans of attention seeking, which ultimately caused Piers Morgan to tag Beckham a “jumped-up tattooed twerp” for “attacking Arsenal fans.”

Morgan went on to post a series of tweets on the matter and even claimed Arsenal supporters are “perfectly entitled” to air their opinions on Wenger’s position as he thinks fans represent the “only true loyalty” left in the sport.

The Gunners have won only two of their last nine league fixtures and are right now languishing in third place. They have not been able to take their chances throughout the campaign, failed to assert themselves when openings have come in matches and beyond

Arsenal will play at Barcelona in the Champions League on tonight in order to must overturn a two-goal deficit if they are to progress to the last eight.
