Gary Neville 1 – Piers Morgan 0.
Following Arsenal’s 3-0 away triumph at Fenerbahce in the Champions League, most fans of the Gunners would have afforded themselves a moment’s pause and celebration after successfully negotiating what could have been a banana-skin fixture.
Piers Morgan is no usual Arsenal fan.
Despite the Gunners all-but confirming their spot in the Champions League, CCN’s talking-head couldn’t help himself from ranting against Arsene Wenger’s transfer policy.
Morgan’s tweet attempted to drive a wedge between two groups of Arsenal fans: “true” Gunners and “dumb” Gunners.
Unhappy at that distinction, though, Sky Sports’ Gary Neville stepped into the breach to recategorise Arsenal fans into different groups: Piers Morgan’s group of “not-normal” Arsenal fans, and the much larger, everyday group of “normal” Arsenal supporters.
