Arsenal is a massive football club, but there’s one thing even bigger than it: #WengerOut. The hashtag has become something of a global meme since it began as a way for fans to show displeasure towards their long standing manager’s, Arsene Wenger, tactics.

Hell, it even has a Know Your Meme page, and has been spotted at protests (including those against former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe last year).

While Wenger finally left the club before the 2018/19 season began, he was replaced by Spanish manager Unai Emery. But it seems that Arsenal fans just can’t find a manager they like.

Because memes never die, but rather evolve, #EmeryOut began trending across Twitter on Sunday evening as Arsenal lost its first match of the season to Manchester City.

It’s a tough life managing a football club.

And yes, people wasted no time creating Twitter accounts dedicated to the Spaniard’s fan-proposed sacking.

The hashtag continued to trend across South Africa on Sunday night.
