Arsenal beat Liverpool to the Community Shield last night, the curtain raiser for the 2020/21 English season and certainly not a major honour.
But I’m not going to pretend like I didn’t want the Reds to win it – of course I did. That didn’t stop supporters of the Gunners embarrassing themselves, though.
In a couple of videos shared to Twitter from a live stream of the Londoners watching the shootout, fans are seen celebrating as if they ‘won the Champions League.’
Obviously the overzealous supporters don’t represent the wider fan-base – and they’re probably just playing up for the cameras – it’s still cringe-worthy, though.
Take a watch of the videos below:
