Things have gone a bit overboard in the Football Transfer Tavern, regarding are Arsenal supporting customers.
We’ve had to cordon off a section of the bar that is strictly for any Gooners popping in for a drink.

My landlord took this action because he felt Arsenal fans were not only becoming a danger to themselves, but also the other punters.
The reason for their meltdown is because of their team’s usual capitulation – you think they’d have grown used to it by now – but after Romelu Lukaku’s goal for Everton, one punter jumped over the bar, wielded a bottle of Jack Daniels as a weapon and threatened anyone who came near him!
That was enough for my landlord to make the call.
Can you imagine the reaction if any of the Arsenal regulars had seen Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kim Kallstrom and Emiliano Viviano’s reaction to Roberto Martinez celebrating with the big Belgian on Sunday afternoon…
