One of the more notable occasions involves Arsenal cult hero Emmanuel Eboue being driven to tears.

Eboue had endured a torrid time after coming on as a substitute against Wigan Athletic in 2008.

He found himself being substituted not long after coming on and the Arsenal fans cheered in delight.

The defender was visibly distraught as he left the pitch with former striker Emmanuel Adebayor consoling him.

The Ivorian ripped off his gloves and looked crestfallen.

Current Arsenal centre back Shkodran Mustafi is a maligned figure among Arsenal supporters.
