Arsenal fans desperate to sign crying Jack Butland after Stoke are relegated to the Championship

The Stoke City goalkeeper was spotted in tears as the Potters were relegated following defeat to Crystal Palace.

But there was little sympathy from Gooners who have urged the club to fix their goalkeeping problems and move for the 25-year-old.

There is a long history of bad blood between the two sets of fans – owing to the start contrast in playing styles and the leg break of Aaron Ramsey.

In their 10 years in the top flight, Stoke have been a thorn in the side for Arsene Wenger's teams.

Ramsey's injury – and a minority of Stoke fans chanting that he 'walks with a limp' and booing him – only increased the bitterness.

Now Arsenal fans want their club to poach the England keeper for a cut-price fee.

Immediately after Stoke were doomed to the Championship, fans began making their voice heard on social media.

POTTERS BROKEN Stoke RELEGATED leaving Jack Butland and fans in tears as Potters are sent down by Crystal Palace

One said: "Snap up Jack Butland, Arsenal!"

Another added: "Arsenal, go grab Jack Butland."

"Arsenal should just buy Butland," said one, while another wrote, "Arsenal, get on the phone.


One wrote: "Chin up Butland. You'll be Arsenal keeper next season."

Arsenal fan TV regular Mr DT spoke for a lot of Gooners when he wrote: "What a great day for football, Stoke City relegated, bye bye you absolute mugs, Aaron Ramsey sends his love."

The message was liked and retweeted thousands of times.

Another said: "Stoke relegated. Can’t say that I feel remotely sorry for them. Still chanting 'Aaron Ramsey, he walks with a limp' nearly ten years after your captain almost ended his career.

"Good riddance."

One had slightly worse language: "And you Stoke may f*** off and never come back again."
