Memes, for the most part, can be pretty funny but often they just make you want to cringe.
Since the internet became a place for people to share comedy, memes have existed.
The ‘meme’ that we use today is defined as:
“An image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by Internet users, often with slight variations.”
Typically humourous in nature.
However, when it comes to football memes, especially where Arsenal are concerned, they can often stray from being genuinely humourous into the realm of downright cringeworthy.
With Arsenal finishing 8th this season, you’d expect the jokes to write themselves but apparently not. Well, not very well anyway.
From poorly worded, misspelled memes, to memes that aren’t even factually accurate, it can be pretty difficult to find a quality Arsenal meme on the internet.
Therefore, we figured that it would be easier to show you the ones which made us cringe the most.
Arsenal memes from 2017 – 2020
We first wrote this post in 2017 (you can see those memes below) so figured it was time for an update, especially given what’s happened at the club in that time. Surely they’ve gotten better in the past three years?
This Arsenal meme gets us off to a good start
The ‘Arsenal don’t win trophies’ line is always hilarious, especially when they are winning trophies. Don’t confuse us with Tottenham.
