Furious fans confront Robbie from Arsenal Fan TV and sing ‘Get out of our club’ as cops escort of him out of Everton

FURIOUS Arsenal fans confronted Robbie from Arsenal Fan TV and told him to "F*** off out of our club" as police were forced to escort him away from Everton.

Footage emerged after large sections of the away end were heard singing "Arsenal Fan TV - Get out of our club" during the 0-0 bore draw at Goodison Park.

Angry fans were seen aggressively approaching the presenter of the controversial YouTube channel right outside the stadium.

Hundreds of fans again chanted "Arsenal Fan TV - Get out of our club" as people surrounded Robbie - full name Robbie Lyle - and made their views clear.

One man was heard accusing him of making money from embarrassing the club while another was spotted waving a five pound note at him in the angry confrontation.

He was eventually shepherded through the crowd and was then seen being escorted away by police as fans screamed "F*** off" and "W*****" at the well known face.

Journalist James McNicholas was at the game and tweeted: "'Arsenal Fan TV - Get out of our club!' very audible from the travelling fans."

Before John Cooney posted the heated from outside the stadium with the caption: "Arsenal fans letting Robbie know they don’t represent Arsenal fans.

"No need to abuse Robbie but the message is clear that the presence of ⁦AFTV⁩ isn’t welcome any more."

David Goddard posted: "AFTV has become some kind of a cult. Fair to say it gives some fans a say, but it thrives of negativity and outrage."

Another added: "Feed them with their own medicine. Give em abuse. Doesn’t feel nice right?"

John Mckeever seemed to back the angry reaction and said: "About time, they do not represent all the fans of Arsenal football club. Too much negativity."

One person seemed to sit on the fence and said: "I'm boycotting it for a while. I do enjoy the interviews but the negativity I feel it brings isn't good for the club."

Many fans also rushed to Lyle's defence.

Dan said: "Blaming AFTV for the toxic Arsenal support instead of looking in the mirror. Welcome to modern society, where it's everyone's fault but oneself."

PYS added: "I don’t get the hate, one of the only arsenal platforms that allows fans to voice their opinion.

"They don’t want to be negative but Arsenal have made them negative over these past years."

There is a growing feeling among some Arsenal fans that the opinion splitting YouTube channel is part of the problem at the crisis stricken North Londoners.

Just over a week ago, fans scrawled "AFTV OUT" on a wall near the Emirates Stadium in a graffiti attack on the often critical channel.

Away from the drama among the fans, Arsenal's boss Mikel Arteta was sat in the stands on Merseyside to watch his new team but will have seen little to get excited about.

Everton also announced the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as manager just an hour before the game and he was also at Goodison to see what he has to deal with.

As a result, the game had an odd feel with neither Arsenal stand in Freddie Ljungberg or temporary Toffees boss Duncan Ferguson able to inspire their players to a win.

Arteta can take some hope from the fact this was Arsenal's first clean sheet in 15 games but fans in the away end turned their attention to AFTV during and after the draw.

Set up in 2012, the fan account boasts over 1 million followers and has since established a reputation as an outspoken and unofficial voice of Gunners supporters.

Such is the club's distaste for their antics, Arsenal forced the YouTubers to rebrand from Arsenal Fan TV and remove the team name from their moniker last year.

Gunners legend Ray Parlour has claimed the social media channel "wants" Freddie Ljungberg's side to lose because it is better for ratings.

To back up his point, Arsenal's 3-0 win over Chelsea in September 2016, captioned 'That's The Best Performance I've Seen Here', currently has over 178,000 views.

While the Gunner's 3-1 defeat to West Brom the following March, which was posted with the title 'Sack Wenger NOW!!!' has since been watched by more than 1 million fans.

And it now appears some have had enough of AFTV host Robbie Lyle, and contributors DT and Troopz for benefiting from the recent turmoil in North London.
