    Gunners fan hangs himself after United victory

    May 6, 2009
    An Arsenal fan hung himself following his team's 4-1 aggregate drubbing by arch-rivals Manchester United in the Champions League semi-final, police said.

    Arsenal lost 3-1 to United in the second leg of their semi-final tie.
    Suleiman Alphonso Omondi, a 29-year-old Kenyan living in the capital Nairobi's Embakasi neighbourhood, hanged himself in his Arsenal shirt after the match.

    "We were watching the match at Bamba 70 pub, and when Arsenal was defeated, Suleiman just walked out in protest and he was crying," Calvin Otieno, one of his friends, said.

    "We didn't know he was going to hang himself until this morning when we received the reports and came here to find his body at the balcony," Otieno said outside the deceased's home.

    Arsenal slumped to a 3-1 defeat at home in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final, capping a disappointing season for the Gunners who were already out of the Premier League title race early in the season.

    that`s just nuts!!!

    im thinking there must me more to it....perhaps he bet a lot of money on the game with some gangsters and he couldnt pay or something..so took his own life..

    it has happened a lot in China with people gamblin` with the triads and then being unable to pay up.

    THere are some pretty fanatical Rams followers on this board but i can't imagine anyone resorting to this behavior, although after the loss in super bowl 36 i did go into a major depression and gain 25 pounds.

    ramming speed to all
