Arsene Wenger could be forced to leave the EU for up to eight Arsenal matches as the media demand respect for officials lest his actions distract from the vitriol they spew about the vulnerable on a regular basis.

Not content with seeing the Arsenal manager charged and facing a touchline ban, the Daily Star are pushing a ‘stadium ban’ agenda, despite there being no precedent for this. The Sun, meanwhile, have added a colourful expletive to the words Wenger is alleged to have uttered at Anthony Taylor which had not been spotted in previous reports.

Should the red tops be successful in their campaign to have Wenger punished as if he had broken a player’s leg in three places while calling him a paedophile, they are expected to return to their normal work of persecuting women, immigrants and the LGBT community, thankful that this shameful distraction can be put behind them.
