Ian Wright Goes From Optimistic To Incandescent During Arsenal’s Hammering In Munich

Arsenal were completely torn apart by Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie at the Allianz Arena, losing 5-1 to leave their hopes of advancing to the quarter-finals hanging by a thread.

Former Gunners legend Ian Wright gave the world a glimpse of what it’s like to be an Arsenal fan, by having a complete Twitter meltdown.

Before the match started, Wright tweeted that he was feeling optimistic.

That optimism looked like disappearing after Arjen Robben gave Bayern the lead, with a beautiful strike into the top corner.

After Arsenal equalised, Wright posted “Yes” and that was followed by a couple of emoji posts before he claimed that Bayern were “There for the taking”.

It soon all went wrong and Wright’s frustrations worsened as Arsenal’s Champions League dreams slowly disappeared, with him eventually reaching boiling point and declaring he’s “Not watching anymore”.

Wright’s former England teammate Alan Shearer probably didn’t help matters by posting that if Sutton United were watching they would fancy their chances in the FA Cup on Monday night.

The tie isn’t quite over yet, but it looks like Arsenal are heading for a last 16 exit from the Champions League for a seventh consecutive season.
