Liverpool fan responds to Arsenal supporters St Totteringham Twitter taunts

There have been numerous reader comments on an article highlighting Gunners fans celebrating St Totteringham's Day at Tottenham Hotspur's expense.

Previously on HITC:Sport, a collection of Twitter posts from Arsenal supporters celebrating St Totteringham's Day - the moment it is mathematically impossible for Tottenham Hotspur to finish the Premier League season above the Gunners - was published and it has inspired healthy debate amongst it's readers.

One reader, a Liverpool fan with no allegiance to either North London side, states that, out of the two clubs, it is actually Arsenal who disappoint it's fanbase more frequently than Spurs.

Stevie G Is A Boss said: "All I'm gonna say is that Arsenal are the only team that have disappointed their fans more than Tottenham. Tottenham showed from the outset that they were going to have an average season until they gelled. We have seen an improvement lately in their performances and this is what their season was all about.

"Arsenal looked as though they could win the title for three quarters of the year. Now they are fighting with Everton over fourth place with finishing above Spurs and a possible FA Cup win being their only comfort.

"It is simply disappointing to see Arsenal fans vent their anger and frustration at Tottenham, who in my memory haven't really involved themselves in such behaviour. And to cap it all off their manager could get sacked at the end of the season. All I hope is that Arsenal lose in the playoffs and don't make it into Champions League."

A Lilywhite reader reacted by claiming that all St Totteringham's Day demonstrates is that Arsenal are trying to find achievement by making up a national holiday: "Just think that without Tottenham, Arsenal would have nothing to celebrate every year," commented Every Tweet a T***.

"They have actually Brainwashed their players and fans into believing that finishing above Spurs in fourth place and Champions League qualification puts them on a par with the big clubs.

"Arsenal… the team that everyone hopes to draw in the knockout stage of the Champions League."
