Arsenal fans know how to have a good time. They make a concerted effort to win every poll – be it Man of the Match or Goal of the Season – and have a knack of producing top terrace bangers.
“We hate Tottenham” and “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” are well-known classics, whilst nobody could forget the rather legendary “he’s quick, he’s blonde, he won the Coupe du Monde, Manu Petit” from the raver days of the late 1990s.
And it appears Gunners fans have added yet another tune to their repertoire, in what is easily the best new chant Football Fancast have heard from any group of supporters this weekend.
Arsene Wenger’s side were without talismanic playmaker Mesut Ozil for today’s Premier League clash at the Britannia Stadium due to injury, so travelling Arsenal supporters felt compelled to honour his absence with their own rendition of Achy, Breaky Heart.
It’s perhaps a little cheesy, but this terrace tune will be stuck in your head all night!

West Ham, fans, however, aren’t too happy. They claim the north Londoners have stolen the idea off the Upton Park faithful, who’ve been singing the same song about Dimitri Payet!
