Arsenal supporter shares footage of 'fucking classless' fans booing Wenger during charity game

It was all in aid of The Arsenal Foundation, and the atmosphere was joyous and celebratory. For the most part at least.

An Arsenal fan by the name of Joeboy (no relation) shared footage of his fellow Gooners booing loudly at the charity game. According to Joe, the incongruous and unedifying jeers were directed towards poor Arsene.
