Arsenal Fan TV’s infamous post-match interviews have become, for better or for worse, one of the more entertaining by-products of the modern footballing world.

Thankfully no-one got hurt!
One wonders what the reaction will be when Arsene Wenger announces he’s signed that new contract just as Alexis Sanchez leaves for Chelsea!
