cult kits arsenal over celebrating odegard with camera


With the latest row surrounding Arsenal's most recent showing of exuberance, they have been called out for "Over Celebrating" after their second Premier League title victory in as many years... we've had a look back at some similar instances of celebrating to see how this latest drama stacks up. 

We have gathered a few memorable moments where early celebrations have come back to bite teams or are just completely over the top. Now we agree with Wrighty, just let them enjoy it, because they'd let us enjoy it right? Let us know in the comments if we've made any glaring omissions. 


Arsenal 2023/24


Cult Kits - Martin Odegaard celebrates scoring goal


So let's start with the most recent case, Jamie Carragher lost his head and not for the first time, when Arsenal's club captain Martin Odegaard was pictured with a camera celebrating with lifelong Arsenal fan and club photographer, Stuart MacFarlane. With KDB and Erling Haaland fit again, they ought to celebrate while they can.

Liverpool 2015/16

Cult Kits - Liverpool celebrate 2-2 draw with West Brom


Next up is this bizarre moment when Jurgen Klopp, who has recently handed in his notice, held his players at gunpoint until they agreed to celebrate with the Liverpool home fans. A 95th minute equaliser from Divock Origi secured a point at Anfield against West Brom, catapulting Liverpool above their Merseyside rivals into 9th position in the Premier League. Tough to watch.

Richarlison 2022/23




During the 2022/23 season, O Pombo had an unusual record, he would score, rip his shirt off, do a little pigeon dance, get carded for taking his shirt off and then VAR would chalk off the goal for a marginal offside. The aforementioned record was that he received more yellow cards for taking his shirt off than he scored Premier League goals for Spurs. The worst of which actually counted when he equalised late on against Liverpool, was carded, the goal stood, and Richy thought he had snatched a late point against his old Merseyside rivals. However, his international teammate, Lucas Moura, had other ideas as he sent a loose back pass through to Diogo Jota who put the hosts back in front in the dying seconds of the tie. Agonising.

Alan Pardew 2015/16




During the 2016 FA Cup final between Crystal Palace and Manchester United, Jason Puncheon put Palace 1-0 up in the 78th causing his manager to be overcome with a dancing fever. However, 3 minutes later Juan Mata equalised for the Red Devil's to take the game to extra time. Jesse Lingard scored the winner with 10 minutes to go to really dampen Alan's big day out.


Ralph Hasenhüttl 2020/21




This strange but heart warming celebration came after Ralph's Saints defeated Liverpool 1-0 at St Marys. When speaking to reporters after the game Hasenhüttl explained he was overcome with emotion due to the fact that he had never manged to overcome any of Jurgen Klopp's sides in their previous meetings.


And we've saved the best for last...
