So Arsenal fans are fun vampires. They don't suck blood, they just suck.The Gunners have a fandom to rival One Direction and they are just as annoying and now we can't have anything nice
Arsenal won club of the year at the inaugural Facebook Football awards on Tuesday. Oh, and Alexis Sanchez was named player of the season. And obviously Arsene Wenger took home Manager of the Year.
This is, of course, just two days after Jack Wilshere inexplicably won Goal of the Season on Match of the Day.
Notice a pattern developing? The awards weren't voted for by critics, players or managers - they were voted for by fans. And the votes got hijacked.
Anyone who gets involved in online polls will have known well before Gary Lineker pointed it out on TV that any vote that has anything to do with Arsenal is doomed.
The fandom takes over. It's like One Direction, only with more balls and marginally better music:
But couldn't it just be that Arsenal deserve to win all these polls?
Well, the Jack Wilshere example would indicate not. Charlie Adam's 65-yard effort against arguably the world's best goalkeeper, in Thibaut Courtois, was a once-in-a-lifetime strike. Wilshere's, while spectacular and technically difficult, was nothing of the sort.
And everyone knew it. And he still won.
The clever people at Sky Sports even made up their own poll without any Arsenal players in it, just to get a proper result.
So, if you are one of the Arsenal fandom, well done. You've ruined the fun for everyone else, but still won.
Remind you of anyone?
