Laura Woods response

TalkSPORT and SkySports presenter Laura Woods has issued a scathing response to Richard Keys and Andy Gray’s Arsenal ‘over-celebration’ criticism.

Keys began on beIN SPORTS. “Yeah, well played, you came back to win it and they keep their 100 per cent record intact. But they haven’t won the title tonight. They’ve won a London derby… Let’s not get too carried away.”

Gray then added: “I get the fans getting over excited. If you want me to be blunt about Arsenal, I like what I see, right? But they’ve beaten Palace, Leicester, Bournemouth and Fulham. It’s not a who’s who of big teams.

“This is over hype. It’s Fulham. This is a league game. If this was the semi-final of the cup somewhere and you’d won, then I get that. Maybe this is what he (Arteta) wants to instil here, I don’t know. I would say it’s dangerous because you’re going to have plenty of downs, that’s for sure.”

Woods responded in a tweet which said: “Genuinely…what is the point of football if you can’t enjoy it in the moment? It’s just a happy team with happy fans who will probably go out tonight & get s*** faced. That’s the point. Better not celebrate a goal in case you lose the game either.”
