Hollywood hunk Matt Damon has angered fans of top English soccer team ARSENAL with outspoken comments about their attitude.

Damon, a keen soccer player since his time in London during the run of Neil Simon's hit play THIS IS OUR YOUTH, hints that the popular north London club - the reigning English Premier League champions - are getting complacent.

He offended Arsenal's huge fanbase with the remark, "The important thing is not to rest on your laurels. Look at Arsenal."

The ARSENAL SUPPORTERS CLUB have hit back, saying, "This is rich coming from a second-rate Hollywood actor. These days Damon has trouble getting arrested."
