WATCH: Spurs fans hurl abuse at Robbie from ArsenalFanTV after North London derby victory

He'll certainly remember his last trip to WHL

It wasn’t the best of days for those connected to Arsenal Football Club. Again.

The final meeting between them and North London rivals at White Hart Lane saw them slump to a 2-0 defeat, their ninth loss of the season. With only five games remaining, Arsene Wenger’s side lie in sixth, six points adrift of fourth place Manchester City. Not only are their hopes of reaching the Champions League next season looking increasingly slim, the defeat also confirms that they will finish below Spurs in the league for the first time in a couple of decades.

Whereas their dismal season has been one to forget for most of the club’s supporters, it can certainly said that it’s done wonders for ArsenalFanTV. The fan-run YouTube channel has been essential viewing for disgruntled Gooners and those rival fans that have simply enjoyed the club’s failings.

Because of this, many of those that appear regularly on it have become well known, to the point where they’ve even got themselves the special slow motion arrival treatment on Sky’s Monday Night Football that’s usually reserved for players.

But, as was discovered by Robbie, the channel’s presenter, being such a recognisable figure certainly has its down sides. Following the loss at White Hart Lane, Spurs fans spotted Robbie and, as the video below makes clear, hurled verbal abuse in his direction.

Although the majority of the chanting concentrates on the score of the football match, some people have pointed out that some of the abuse goes a little further than light-hearted banter between rival fans.
