It sounds like Mark Chapman made an embarrassing Freudian slip introducing Arsenal on MOTD2

There's a certain type of football fan who's always keenly on the alert for any perceived media bias against their team.

Now usually their accusations just get dismissed as verging on the comical. But every now and then the mask slips and a the vast, orchestrated media conspiracy against their team is unveiled.

Now Chapman has never hidden the fact he's a Manchester United fan and has even given interviews to fanzines to flagrantly flaunt his love of the Old Trafford outfit.
