Jamie Carragher labels actions of Arsenal players an absolute joke

Jamie Carragher has criticised the trend of players posing for photos after winning games, with Arsenal incurring his wrath.

Pictured above are four happy Arsenal players after their win against Manchester City.

Yet this type of photo is one Jamie Carragher wants to see off the internet and social networks, with celebrations staying behind closed doors, he told SkySports television.

He only wants to see such delirium if the players have a trophy to pose with alongside, not just a single league win.

Admitting it was not only Arsenal who are culpable, Carragher was clearly irritated by the trend.

He said: "This nonsense of team photos after a win, it's winding me up.

"You'd want them on your mantelpiece, 'what did you win that for? Oh we won away at Man City!', it's an absolute joke.

"It's not just Arsenal, it's everybody."

Carragher's former teammates at Liverpool posed for a snap in the Old Trafford dressing room last season after a 3-0 win, as pictured in The Express, yet went onto finish the season trophyless.

The trend is just an example of the changing culture of modern football, which does not mean it's beyond criticism, but when it's Arsenal, their players appear to generate more flak than most - just see the furore when they celebrated in the same style after beating Newcastle two seasons ago to secure fourth spot.
