Laura Woods has hit back at Noel Gallagher for calling Arsenal fans 'idiots'.
Gallagher, a Manchester City fan, has been celebrating his side's latest Premier League title after they beat Arsenal to the Premier League crown despite the Gunners topping the table for almost the whole season.
He was on talkSPORT on Wednesday and spoke to Woods, who is an Arsenal fan, and things got pretty heated.
As Gallagher spoke about Arsenal, co-host Jim White told the former Oasis singer that he was being dismissive about the Gunners, to which he let loose.
"I love it with that lot because the fans are idiots! They are!" he said. "They've got more fan channels than any club in world sport.
"And I watch enough of their fan channels because it is highly amusing and they know they come out with this, 'it's good against evil and all the money' and all that. It's just like, suck it up."
It was then that Woods decided to step in and defend her fellow Arsenal fans, and she couldn't resist a cheeky dig at City themselves.
“You could call all football fans idiots," Woods said. "They’re just passionate, aren’t they?
“And Noel, the reason we’ve got more fan channels is because we’ve got more fans, sorry!
“Mikel Arteta doesn’t need to tell his fans to liven up a little bit to get them going. I’m just saying, Noel. As much as I love you.
"He can say what he wants. They’ve absolutely done us this season and so he’s completely right in some senses but, not the fans. We’re all idiots. Everyone’s an idiot!”
City are bidding to win the treble this season but have two Premier League games remaining before they play their two cup finals, firstly against Manchester United in the FA Cup final before taking on Inter Milan in the Champions League final.
Arsenal, meanwhile, must regroup and try and challenge again next year, and are hoping to steal club captain Ilkay Gundogan from City this summer.
