A huge rant
Arsenal fans were disgusted at Bernd Leno.
The goalkeeper hasn’t been great in recent months.
However, one thing annoyed them above everything else.
The stopper was accused of speaking to DT following the game against Liverpool.
The loss was huge and very embarrassing for Arsenal.
So, for their players to then speak to the unofficial club site, AFTV, who have caused them so much embarrassment in the past, was a no-no.
The channel terrorised Arsene Wenger and the club made it very clear in the summer that they were not affiliated with the fan station.
They had to change their name to AFTV.
While some fans like the content, many more think it’s sensationalised and in no way helpful.
They were fuming with their keeper, and suggested he should be dropped for Petr Cech.
Just had a very good chat via FaceTime with @Bernd_Leno, he was very honest when speaking about yesterday’s game, what we need to do to improve and what our hopes are for the remainder of the season, all he asks is the fans stick with us, they will get it right.

Apparently, our friend Mr DT ‘facetimes’ Leno after games in order to represent the fanbase, give him encouragement and so on. Appears to be true as far as I can work out.

DT posted a tweet saying he spoke to Leno after the game and then backed it up with a screenshot of him and Leno facetiming.

That doesn’t look good, but i bet Leno doesn’t know about AFTV or even who DT is?

Leno FaceTimed DT after that game? Drop him for Cech immediately.

If Leno is really FaceTiming DT we need to bin him immediately..

Leno apparently facetiming with DT. I am disgusted, I am appalled.

AFTV and DT are poison to this great club.

However, some fans doubted that was the case.
They questioned the validity of the claims.
Not only because players need club permission before speaking to the media, but because it wasn’t uploaded.
For someone from Arsenal FanTV, so known for making money from videos like that and interviews to fail to do that looks strange.
So DT the youtube vlogging whore is not uploading the “chat” he had w Leno which would certainly cause a spike in terms of numbers to his channel? Yea right… try again you marmite.

Don’t believe for a second that screenshot is from an actual Facetime convo between DT & Leno.
Aside from the fact players need club permission to speak with Journos let alone the average fan, DT monetizes everything, this would have been one of his first videos of the weekend.
