Tears for Piers: The Bournemouth edition

Piers Morgan is a very polarizing figure. He’s a very opinionated person and really doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him. To be honest, I can kind of respect him for that. But a lot of times, Piers Morgan can be irritating, especially irritating when he’s talking about his beloved Arsenal Football Club.

It’s not that I don’t like Piers Morgan because he’s an Arsenal fan, I don’t like Piers Morgan because he represents a modern day type of sports fan that I don’t particularly care for. The kind of fan who demands instant gratification and loves or hates the players and the manager based on the last result. I can’t remember how many times Morgan went from calling Arsene Wenger a genius to calling him an idiot.

It may not make sense to do a “Tears for Piers” articles after Arsenal came back from 3-0 down in the 70th minute to draw 3-3 against Bournemouth. It was an incredible comeback and one that Arsenal will look at as a potential turning point for a second half charge up into the top three in the table. But it also showed what kind of a fan and person Piers Morgan actually is.

Things all started when Piers took issue with Arsene Wenger placing Aaron Ramsey on the wing.

Then things devolved when Bournemouth started taking the lead and pulling away.

Once at halftime, Piers targeted his criticism toward a typical foe, Arsene Wenger.

After Arsenal began their comeback, Piers started tweeting less and was getting less hostile on the team he roots for.

And then once Arsenal completed the comeback, Piers was like a new person and completely ignored what he just said minutes ago.
