Thursday night was a good one for Aaron Ramsdale, who kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 win despite seeing his side reduced to 10 men.

After the game, Ramsdale celebrated in front of the Arsenal away fans, before turning and punching the air in front of the home fans as well.

The player’s brother Edward Ramsdale explained why on Twitter, highlighting that Aaron was “brought up a West Brom fan…so that ‘boing boing’ meant something from our childhood”.

Edward added in another tweet that the goalkeeper was a “Baggie growing up” and is a “Gooner for life”.

For those still confused, the “boing boing” celebration is what Ramsdale was doing on the pitch, bouncing up and down and pumping alternate arms into the air. It’s a favourite celebration for West Brom supporters.

West Brom have a local rivalry with Wolves, known as the Black Country derby.

So Ramsdale pulling out the “boing boing” celebration was clearly a reference to his childhood club and a little dig at their rivals.

From an Arsenal point of view, Ramsdale can celebrate however he wants when he’s joint-second in the league for clean sheets – only two behind Manchester City’s Ederson, who has played four extra games.

The goalkeeper has won his new team plenty of points this campaign already, and Arsenal will be counting on him again for the remainder of the season if they want to finish in the top four.
