Did you see the game winning goal in the Belgium/Japan game? It was really good! Here it is, in case you didn’t:

I mean, everything about that goal is absolutely textbook, from Courtois’ rollout to that dummy to the finish. And yet, according to at least one English news source, we as Arsenal fans are supposed to be unhappy about the result, for...reasons?

Don’t bother clicking on it - the reason Arsenal fans were “left furious” is because Marouane Fellaini, who was the subject of some transfer rumorship linking him with Arsenal before not coming to Arsenal, scored the game’s equalizing goal, which led to them scoring that winner.

Are you mad yet? Or, like me, are you just confused as to why we should care?

I get that newspapers need to get people to click. And I get sports tribalism! But I don’t get why a goal scored by a player who didn’t come to Arsenal is supposed to make me as an Arsenal fan angry. He did a sports for another team, so...grrrrr?

Anyway, we here at the Short Fuse did a little digging, and we came up with a whole bunch of other things that we as Arsenal fans should be furious about. Are you not feeling rage-y enough today? Any one of these headlines should put you over the top!
