Twitter Throws Some Serious Shade at Arsenal’s Low Attendance vs West Brom

Twitter Throws Some Serious Shade at Arsenal’s Low Attendance vs West Brom

Before tonight’s game even kicked-off against West Brom, Arsenal had serious concerns about how many fans would turn up.

The club was reportedly worried that supporters would refuse to show after a slump of form saw the Gunners fall out of the title race, with pressure mounting on Arsene Wenger.

And it seems that the concerns were well-founded, with the ground no-where near full at the half-hour mark.

The Independent even reported that the club were expecting their lowest ever attendance for a Premier League fixture, with many season ticket holders choosing to stay at home and watch the game on Sky Sports.

Approximately 2,500 tickets were offered to club members while a few hundred more were placed on general sale but, due to a lack of interest, many have remained unsold.

And it didn’t long for Twitter to stick the boot in, with comparisons made to Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium, which has earned a reputation for rarely reaching full capacity:

 

A superb turn and finish from Alexis Sanchez gave Arsenal a 1-0 lead after five minutes.

And the Chile international doubled his tally on 38 minutes with a clever free-kick routine that left West Brom keeper Ben Foster scratching his head.
