‘Wenger was kicked out for this!’ – Arsenal fans react to Brentford humiliation
Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Brentford on the opening night of Premier League action sparked an angry reaction from Gunners fans at full-time.
Goals from Sergi Canos and Christian Norgaard gave the Bees a shock victory on their Premier League debut.
For many Arsenal supporters, it felt like the natural culmination of a summer that has seen the club struggle in the transfer market, capturing only Ben White for £50 million from Brighton.
Meanwhile, they missed out on other important targets and started the match with youngster Folarin Balogun in attack as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette took ill before kick-off.
The natural reaction of the Gunners was one of frustration and embarrassment.

-Took us to 8th position, we trusted him.
-Offloaded likes of Guendouzi and Saliba while likes of Willian and Chambers remained, we trusted him.
-He promised us the best, we trusted him.
-We have just lost 2-0 now, i DON'T TRUST HIM #ArtetaOut
We want to see actions after tonight. We just lost to a team that had NEVER played in the PL before, were absolutely dominated by them and couldn't score. ANOTHER embarrassing club record is broken. SACK HIM and hire an experienced coach. To think Wenger was kicked out for THIS.— Andrew Mathew (@anndrewmathew) August 13, 2021

With Chelsea and Manchester City to come, there is no optimism for the future.

And, of course, opposing supporters took the opportunity to troll Arsenal further.
