Arsenal v Tottenham: Spurs fan arrested after banana skin thrown

Once again, Tottenham shows its “class.”

“A Tottenham supporter was arrested after a banana skin was thrown on to the pitch during Sunday's ill-tempered derby with Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.

It was thrown from the away end after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had scored for the Gunners, who won the game 4-2.

A Spurs spokesman said the supporter would be banned, with anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out calling for a life ban.

"We condemn this action and welcome the investigation," Kick It Out said.“

Nevertheless, a brilliant come-from-behind victory for the Gunners putting them into the Champions League places. Strong, aggressive play combined with all the Arsenal trademarks of “style and grace.”

1. This is the part

of Europe that all the people here in the US pretend to not see when telling us here in the states how we should be "more like Europe and the rest of the civilized world"....lots of the people telling us that have never actually been to Europe for any length of time.

Dani Alves used to get the banana treatment as well when he played in different European venues, American player Josi Altidore discusses that very open racism as well.

But sure, let's be more like Europe...
