Arsenal and Spurs have released a joint statement relating to offensive chanting during Sunday’s game at White Hart Lane.
“Both clubs were extremely disappointed to hear the chants from supporters at yesterday’s game. Neither club tolerates foul language, racist chanting, homophobic chanting or any anti-social behaviour from its supporters.
“We shall be working closely with each other to identify the individuals involved.”
When you consider that the Spurs chants are about Arsene Wenger being a pedophile and the Arsenal chants were about Adebayor being shot dead in a terrorist attack in which killed one man and injured nine, it’s no bad thing.
The issue about whether or not this sort of thing should have been addressed years and years ago, when that chant was directed at Wenger up and down the country, is another one entirely but there really is no moral high ground to take here.
