Arsenal could faces FA charges for their celebrations against Bournemouth. Journalist Charles Watts slams the news of the Gunners facing the charges. Arsenal could be charged by FA following the extreme celebration in the win against Bournemouth. The Gunners pulled a remarkable comeback on Saturday and managed to pick up 3 points on the way. Furthermore the cherries led just after 9 seconds since the kick off. They further went 2-0 up before the goals from Thomas Partey and Ben White levelled the Gunners. However it was Reiss Nelson who got the winner at the last kick of the ball. Therefore understandably Emirates went wild at the goal. Arsenal players and the staff charged around the pitch while celebrating. However it seems like FA is upset with the celebrations by the Gunners. Furthermore they now seem to be investigating this matter.
Charles Watts slams the news of FA investigating Arsenal
Journalist Charles Watts slammed the allegations against Arsenal. The journalist commented, “What do you describe it as? A farce, a joke? Just laughable? I don’t know. But basically the news that the Football Association, the FA, are looking into, investigating, the celebrations after Saturday’s victory against Bournemouth.” He further went on, “I don’t really know where to begin with this. I mean, look, technically, I suppose, if you’re going by the rules, then there is potentially something there that the FA could charge Arsenal with because the players all ran onto the pitch, we know that.
“And according to the law, players and staff have to stay in the technical area and have got to behave well unless there’s something really gone on. So basically, a physio is allowed to run onto the pitch to tend to an injured player, that sort of thing.”
He lastly added, “So yeah, the rules are there. But come on, I mean, use a bit of common sense. Seriously, do you want to suck every little bit of life out of football in a moment like that?”
Arsenal found themselves in this mess, after referee Chris Kavanagh reported their celebrations. But in fair terms of the rule, it’s not probably best to have a kid run into the pitch to high-five the Arsenal manager amid the excitement. However the scenes of great passion is an advert for the English football. Therefore they will only be harming their own brand if they take action against the celebrations.
