Furious Arsenal supporters are now doing everything necessary to try and keep Mike Dean away from their team in future.

According to report gathered, one particularly annoyed Gooner has gone online and created a petition aimed at having Dean barred from taking charge of any future Arsenal games.
The annoyed Gooner said:
“It is time that we get an inquiry to his ability to referee Arsenal games.”
For most clubs, such things might raise a brief laugh and then disappear without trace. Not Arsenal. Arsenal knows how to mobilise their online army – and at the time of writing, nearly 25,000 people had signed the petition.
Recall, three indisputable facts about Arsenal supporters are:
1. They despise Chelsea (and particularly Diego Costa).
2. They are not particularly fond of Mike Dean, the referee whose handling of their 2-0 defeat at Chelsea is why No1 is particularly true at the moment.
3. They love nothing more than using their massive online presence to hijack polls/dominate Twitter/launch an Arsenal-related crusade.
Once you combine these three things, no-one should be in any way surprised by the news ‘Arsenal have launched an anti-Mike Dean petition’.
