Arsenal website slyly rummages through Tottenham’s ’empty trophy cabinet’ in online shopping cart before Premier League club deletes post and blames individual error

Someone at Arsenal has found an inventive way to remind fans that the Premier League club’s shop is overpriced.

And unsurprisingly, that involved a dig at north London rivals Tottenham.

Arsenal were forced to explain the message

Eagle-eyed supporters have spotted a brutal Spurs crackdown, hidden in the online basket of the Gunners’ online store, of all places.

If the basket was empty, a message would read: “Your basket is as empty as Tottenham’s trophy cabinet.”

Arsenal have since confirmed it was the work of a rogue employee, as opposed to a hacker or someone following club orders.

A statement read: “This was posted to the site in error without proper checks or approvals and is being removed as soon as possible.”

Spurs, who have won just one major honor this century, are well used to gags of this nature.

Their own sponsors, Dulux, even stepped in last year.

It was brutal from, yes, Dulux

It was brutal from, yes, Dulux

Moments after Spurs announced the company as their official paint supplier in April 2021, Dulux began mocking the club’s empty trophy cabinet.

In quickly deleted tweets, the brand responded to a fan who joked that the Spurs trophy room could be used to store paint cans.

Dulux, seemingly agreeing, posted a picture of an empty glass cabinet with the Spurs crest on it, with a caption claiming the ‘unused trophy cabinet’ was ‘for sale’.

Rival supporters quickly joined in the fun and another suggested the trophy cabinet needed painting because of the dust, to which Dulux replied: “Don’t be silly, the surfaces need to be dusted before painting.”
