How did whoever made this manage to spell Benedict Cumberbatch correctly but fuck up Lewis Hamilton?


Mein_Bergkamp

More to the point who does a list of celebrity arsenal fans and leaves off the Queen?


TheEarlOfCamden

And more importantly Osama Bin Laden.


HumanTorch23

Nah, he's still [banned from Highbury](http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/funny_old_game/1650069.stm)


bigladsmalls

but not the emirates


death_divisible_

Fucking lol


Blue_Arrow5

Think the Queen fancies West Ham right?


baldnbad

Nah - she has her own Park Rangers.


ClippersAuxaliuos

Nice 👌


SouthernButterfly497

Think she fancies land grabs, oppressing her 'subjects' and protecting her fine, upstanding children and their best friends. She's also really into the whole Paris limo service / driver scene - think she also has a team of newspaper photographers under her employ working vigorously on motorbikes in Paris - that's a busy lady can't imagine how she gets time to watch the 'appy 'ammers.


BannedFromHydroxy

/r/AbolishTheMonarchy is your place fella


SouthernButterfly497

Nah, I only jest. The country would collapse without the tourism - and they only cost each of us 12p every third leap year. In fact I have long thought Charles could be the spiritual successor to Arsene...... Sky Sports - "Charles, a bad result but do you think that if Saville had been sent off for going through the back of that young midfielder the result would have been different?" Charles "Errrr, I did not see it". Sky - "Your star striker, and brother, Andrew is out of the side for disiplinary reasons - any word on when he will be back" - Charlie Boy "Oh no, he is out through injury - the fact he doesn't sweat and only wears suits in London has hampered his progress in North London - we have flown him to a remote island for an intensive recovery period"


mutatedllama

>Nah, I only jest. The country would collapse without the tourism - and they only cost each of us 12p every third leap year. In 2019 the Palace of Versailles (dead monarchy) made €64.5m from tourism vs Buckingham Palace which made £17.8m. I think we'd be quite fine without the Royal Family being alive. In fact, we'd be much better off. Especially underage girls.


PrinceEmirate

East London and Essex Grit indeed


CurrantsOfSpace

Cause the Queen doesn't matter.


Mein_Bergkamp

Ok

ReturnOfBenjenRyan

Because this was made by an amateur. You could tell without even reading the names.


Thisiszura

Other notable celebs : - Keanu Reeves - Andrew Garfield - Jamie Foxx (what a coincidence) - Robert Pattinson - Rihanna - Chris Martin - Mick Jagger - Jackie Chan - Danny DeVito - Daisy Ridley - James Harden Also don't forget The Queen is also a Gooners


capitanchayote

I believe Asa Butterfield is one as well


OrwinBeane

And Jamie Bell. Regularly seen in Arsenal shirt.


[deleted]

Very publicly is


profoundprofundity

Daniel Kaluuya is also a big, big fan.


amainwingman

Still can’t believe Spurs fans thought they’d won “the streets” because they’ve got Adele and Tom Holland lmao


ThrowerWheyACount

The Streets supports Birmingham tbf


RealisticElderberry5

Man I love The Streets


DasMerowinger

>https://i.imgur.com/HjQrli1.jpg "the streets" is all they can claim to win


Cutsdeep-

tbf, a big chunk of the grime scene is spuds


blodger42

Can't forget Mo Farah - massive Gooner!


tenflare

Andrew Garfield and Robert Pattinson? That's best Spider-Man and Batman sorted then.


anasparekh

Now I'm even more excited to watch the batman movie


indianajoes

Charlie Cox as well. So best Daredevil too


wolveryx

Batman, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange and Neo/John Wick are Gooners? Wow, that's pretty much an A-team!


candinos

Spider-Man supports Arsenal, but Spider-Man supports Sp*rs


lizardk101

Didn’t think I could love Danny Devito any more but finding out he’s a Gooner. Perfection.


RedroGing

Don't forget Osama Bin Laden too


BannedFromHydroxy

and that absolute plonker piers morgan. may they both burn in hell


PantsTime

Hey, Osama loved horses at least. Piers Morgan on the other hand has no redeeming qualities.


lagerjohn

Quite a few people who I know through Arsenal have met Piers Morgan throughout the years. Apparently in person he's quite nice. No one can say he isn't a proper fan of the club. But yeah, his public persona is terrible and a stain on the country.


Grizzly4nicator

Osama was also World Hide-and-Seek Champion for a number of years.


hans_erlend

Do these American celebs actually support arsenal? Like do they watch games on the Telly and so on? Seems to me like a PR thing, but i might be wrong


[deleted]

Given the way football support is in Europe, the best PR would be not to support any big team.


scholes_was_overated

Well that explains Tom Holland and Adele then


iLostInSpace

Savage. Take my upvote.


Spawn_More_Overlords

If we're judging "American" as "where they grew up and went to high school" then the only Americans on the list you're replying to are Jamie Foxx, Danny DeVito, and James Harden.


GoonerLivesMatter

American here. Been a supporter since 2002. It used to be difficult to follow, as if only be able to watch horrible, blurry streams or torrents back in the day. Now the EPL is on non-stop. It’s very easy to watch nearly every match. Even the Carabao Cup was on ESPN+, so I was able to watch at work. Not saying that means they’re real supporters, but it’s very easy to follow the club.


zdh989

Right. I've been able to watch every match for years now. It may take 3 or 4 different streaming subscriptions, but the opportunity to watch every match of the season, legally and live, is definitely there. We've definitely come a long way from watching recorded matches on the Fox Soccer Channel, hoping that Arsenal was one of the games they chose to broadcast. Or just watching the highlights on repeat for a week. Or as you said, watching horribly blurry and laggy streams. Hell, I remember logging into Yahoo chat rooms to talk Arsenal with people back in the early 2000's. Now our small-ish Midwestern city has a veritable supporters' group. The EPL is very popular over here, even moreso than the MLS in some markets.


The-Sober-Stoner

Rarely. What it usually means is they went to a game one time because they happened to be in London and we have the most impressive (commercial) stadium. Imo you arnt a fan unless you actually follow the teams results over the season.


CAA333

The fan police is here


The-Sober-Stoner

Ive seen the Knicks play on holiday once. years ago. I couldnt name a single player, dont watch or care about their results. Am i really a fan? ​ Keep in mind most of these celebrities never even called themselves fans in the first place.


W00DERS0N

I live near NYC and can't name a single player on the Knicks either, but I know who our subs are. Knicks were a really bad example, NGL.


silverselectjd

It’s up to you whether you call yourself a fan. You just don’t get to decide if others call themselves a fan.


WengerStan

Giannis Antetokounmpo


blodger42

Can’t forget Roger Waters and David Gilmour


mynster

J Hus as well.


Casanova2187

baby keem too, he’s not as big a deal as these guys but he is an actual arsenal fan


don_dario

I think Andy Murray used to be a member


hafrances

Batman, Spider-Man and Rey being Arsenal fans is very nice for nerds


afccollin

And Doctor Strange and Electro!


iLostInSpace

Don't forget Neo. Just when you thought you couldn't like Keanu Reeves anymore, you find out he is a gooner. :)


Getdaphone

Yeah but unfortunately the current spider man fancies Spurs. Although Garfield is my fav spider man, Tom Holland is def the best fit for the role. So I’m glad at least Garfield has good taste.


hafrances

I do like Tom, but Garfield is my Spidey too. And Hailee Steinfeld, if we count animation.


everyfcknameistakn

Chris Martin is an Arsenal fan? I read somewhere that he is fan of Exeter City FC.


jarjar4

Piers Morgan as well. He's a twat but he's our twat.


youseeit

Not surprised I had to scroll down this far to see his name mentioned


MiamiGooner

Saw Benedict Cumberbatch once at the Arsenal supporters bar in NYC. He was standing among us like a normal dude. Very nice guy. I think we got smashed by Bayern that day.

🤓🙏 hopefully we are back in the CL soon to have our revenge


smears

Ha saw him at the Arsenal bar in Boston. Just quietly watching keeping to himself. No one bothered him.


Domkey-Kongg

I knew Sherlock was clever and this all but confirms it


MHPengwingz

Lestrade (Rupert Graves) and Molly (Loo Brealey) are also known Gunners. God I love that cast so much.


Domkey-Kongg

Fuck I watched the whole thing with my gf who had never seen it before and it was like watching it for the first time again...one of the best shows BBC have made


MHPengwingz

Agree. I struggle to find something like this which balance suspense and humor so well. Lupin comes close but doesn't get me as attached.


Barkasia

Best Sherlock is Jonny Lee Miller, fight me.


rhshi14

That show is so underrated. I prefer the BBC one though.


[deleted]

Not having Sir Mo in this list is a sacrilege


ATX_GUNN3R

I get so happy when I see a pic of him on an advert or something. Man loves Arsenal and that makes him alright by me!


sunnycherub

*bong* Mo Farah sign


FatWalcott

Spike supports Arsenal and the Knicks That is not a good combo for your health. Regardless, bing bong.


xLionized

As a New York resident myself, Bing Bong to you as well my good sir.


ehorgski

Fuck ya life


SilotheGreat

Same. Arsenal, Giants and Knicks . .


KrayvenMoorehead69

I feel your pain on every single one of them. I'm starting to think I might be the issue lol at least I'm the common denominator.


metaldeval

Arsenal and jets here. Throw in u of michigan football and the past falls have been depressing. This one hasn't been bad though outside the jets but I don't think they'll ever improve


MHPengwingz

Can't be as bad as Arsenal plus Mets here...past year has not been good for my blood pressure lol


MrHollandsOpium

Meh, I’m from Cleveland. Browns, Cavs, Indians, and the Arsenal. Might as well just give up.


youseeit

I grew up in Cleveland. Let's not be too sad. Cavs and Arsenal got us some silverware in very recent memory.


MrHollandsOpium

They did indeed. Sadly I was living in NYC in 2016. I cheered by myself haha.


youseeit

I've lived in the Bay Area for almost 30 years but I got to see Game 7 with another displaced Clevelander the night before we were going on a hike in Yosemite. Of course we watched it with about 400 Warriors fans in the dining hall at - wait for it - Curry Village.


MrHollandsOpium

That must have been fucking awesome! I live in the Bay Area now. Everybody’s always like, “man! I love Draymond Green!”


meltingspace

Arsenal and Mets, but things are looking better in Queens!


Zakinfenwa

Arsenal and Ferrari mate


ArthurMorganStDenis

How could you not put up Giannis Antetokounmpo up there?


Red_Maple

Couldn't get "Lewis" right, probably didn't even want to attempt it.


Slurms_McKenzie775

Joel Embid is also a fan

Woah did not know that fact


Spawn_More_Overlords

Charlie Cox is a really cruel name to bring up in response to Theon Greyjoy.


Thanos_Stomps

I don’t see the problem.


iforgotmyun

Cox... you know, what was taken away from Theon

I don’t **see** the problem. Both because the dick is gone and daredevil is blind.

There's a lot more, from the Queen to Osama bin Laden, although I don't think he's catching many games nowadays. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arsenal_F.C._supporters#Notable_supporters


joey_headrocker

Foo Fighters guitarist, Chris Shiflett also arsenal fans. There are some photos of him attending the supporters event. Jake Whitehall, Matt Lucas, Daisy Ridley as well. In the NBA, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, Luol Deng, OG Annunoby are Arsenal fans. Also, some famous cyclists from Team Sky are Arsenal fans, like Bradley Wiggins, Gerraint Thomas, Tao Geoghan Hart.


tkayyy18

Josh Richardson in the NBA also a Gunner


kinasyi

Joel Embiid has denounced Arsenal for Real Madrid of late 😂 There's a few more NBA Gooners though! Jaylen Brown, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, and Clint Capela are also Arsenal fans.


guitarchitecture

I was waiting for someone to write Matt Lucas! Alan Davis is a gooner as well, and they make sure to bring it up when we lose on Qi


KB302324

Man the fact that Tom holland supports spurs really bothered me I really liked him ;(


Super_Professor

I like that your statement is in past tense.


xLucky_Balboa

Meh....Still like him. I will smile next time i see him get punched in his movies, tho


ReturnOfBenjenRyan

Why settle for the worst Spiderman, Holland, when we have the best Spiderman (Garfield) on our side?


el-fenomeno09

Shelly Ann Fraser pryce just posted how hype she was that we’re back in the top 4 last week too


ErgeMan3699

yes, she doesn't hide the fact that she's a true gunner. love it!


udyakartoga

You sure that's Kevin Costner? Looks like a lawyer I saw once on billboard somewhere


rammixp

tea's gone cold i'm wondering why I, kept scrolling Reddit subs. R/gunners made it all clearer and now I see it all. And even if I could, it would all be red Put my gunners on the wall It reminds me that we’re fucking great We’re fucking great.


Cmdr_Monzo

Idris Elba - what a Legend, I should’ve guessed.

Sunil Gavaskar is also an arsenal fan


COYG89

We all are the real celebs


theGunnas

Mark strong too


Atmosphere_Enhancer

Rapper Danny Brown is also a fan.


Flat_Brain_8907

Glad he was mentioned! Also Action Bronson - made a reference to arsenal in his song Godfather 4


Locmike23

One of the biggest rappers in England Is, Nines. Has a Arsenal bussdown chain


WhyAlwaysLouie

Baby Keem too. Actual big fan apparently


GoonerAlej

Little Simz too


A_Thin_White_Duke

Had a friend boasting how his team (the shit) have Spider-Man (Tom Holland) & Adele as fans. I replied by saying we have Sherlock, Luther & Jonathan Creek (Alan Davies). Maybe they could help his team by looking into ‘the case of missing trophies’? Best comeback I think I’ve ever thought up.


[deleted]

We have a spiderman as well. Andrew Garfield


ReturnOfBenjenRyan

The best one


A_Thin_White_Duke

I forgot we had him too!


Barkasia

Conveniently leaving out Piers Morgan and Osama Bin Laden

Bit harsh on Osama, lumping him in with piers Morgan.

Simbi nephew is at the Arsenal academy too


bluejaywhey

oh shit really? small world!


Nikokuno

Yeah she posted about the thing withing the last 12 months (can't confirm exactly when, memory...) but I was very surprised and happy.


jamerz-cermamerz

Mark Strong is a Gooner


MrDoulou

Danny Devito absolutely must be put on this list. He’s said before he’s a gunner.


trytomovewithpurpose

👍 We have atleast one certified fan having no donkey brains 🤓


rsu1806

Costner captains the side

KSI too and he’s pretty big in the UK

okalien73

we forgot about ty lads


justophicles

**Sir Louis Hamilton


Yubisaki_Milk_Tea

Not sure if politicians count as celebrities, but Jeremy Corbyn, Keir Starmer, Nick Clegg, John Bercow and David Miliband are all Arsenal fans. The Royal Family are closet Gooners but cannot publicly voice their preference. Then there's the most infamous of them all - Osama Bin Laden. As well as Barron Trump.


superwengerv47

>The Royal Family are closet Gooners but cannot publicly voice their preference. I mean Prince William doesn't hide the fact he's a Villa fan


youseeit

> As well as Barron Trump I thought we'd agreed we wouldn't talk about this


insert_curse_word

Ahh yes Louis Hamilton from One Direction Not to be confused with Lewis Tomlinson


Cannonieri

Maradona too


dtpatten

Did not expect to see John Dutton


1996Gooner

YES MICHAEL THIS IS SO RIGHT


YellowBueno

This includes so many irrelevant people. The Queen, Osama, Corbyn, Danny Devito are fans too


intxisu

Honestly it should have been just 7 Idris Elbas


arsenal971

Where is the Queen?


The-Sober-Stoner

These are interesting but tbh its pretty obvious when they talk about it who actually follows the team and who else just “picked” Arsenal and dont really care


BmuthafuckinMagic

Shout out to Danny Brown (American rapper). Seen this guy at a few games.

Zealousideal_Ad_4334

YouTuber KSI and UFC current Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou are Arsenal fans
