Many Arsenal fans like to think they’re crazy about their club. That’s why, when Danny Welbeck scored THAT last-minute winner against Leicester, Gooners everywhere went nuts.
However, as far as we know, there’s only one Arsenal supporter who celebrated the goal so passionately, he needed SURGERY.
Say hello to Scott Woods, the 26 year-old season-ticket holder at The Emirates – who gave himself a hernia celebrating Welbeck’s late winner.
“When it went in, I jumped about six feet in the air,” Scott tells us exclusively. “I was jumping around with my dad and didn’t even realise what I’d done!”
“I thought I just had a stomach ache. I was going to go and do some work after the match, but I was so over the moon when were leaving the stadium, I went to the pub. I got home and it was still sore, but I thought it was something I’d eaten… or maybe a dodgy pint!”
It wasn’t until the early hours of Tuesday morning, when Scott felt a weird lump near his stomach, that he decided to take himself into hospital to get checked out.
“They asked me if I’d done any heavy lifting or exercise. I was baffled – I definitely hadn’t done any exercise. Then it clicked. It was all that jumping around with my dad… who’s fine, by the way!”
Scott was operated on that same day. And as if he hasn’t already proven his love for Arsenal, wait until you hear the first thing he asked the doctor once he came out of surgery.
“My first question for the doctor after the op was, ‘Can I go to the Hull game on Saturday?’ I don’t want to miss it! The doc gave me permission, so long as I promise to stay sitting down the whole time.”
So what happens if Arsenal grab another dramatic late winner?
“I guess I’ll have to restrain myself. I can’t get another hernia… my mates are already killing themselves laughing!”
