R.I.P Claude Callegari | Father, Grand Father, Friend And A Proud Arsenal Fan.
We are absolutely devastated today to learn of the death of Claude Callegari, one of the channel’s most popular contributors.
Claude was a much loved figure during his time on the channel and through his passion for Arsenal was able to connect with fans from around the globe on a meaningful level.
We had continued to privately support Claude during his time away from the channel during the pandemic and the news of his passing comes as a deep shock to everyone at AFTV and in the wider Arsenal community.

We will not be publishing any content on our platform over the next few days whilst we come to terms with the news of his passing.

  • Much love to Claude's family and AFVT. From a United fan on the other side of the world.

  • Imagine dying a meme

  • I'm not falling for this sympathy vote good acting. The founder Robbie of AFTV that first of all propelled Claude into the social media lime light should be disgusted with himself along with the rest of the AFTV hooligans. Robbie now so heavily involved in social media never without a camera, never without a phone on him, never too far from a laptop completey failed and managed ironically supposedly to see that suicide message days before prior to Claude actually then taking his life. The message Claude left was about leaving and going to see his mum! So if you amongst all of the AFTV fans or members or hooligans all managed to miss his pleads and cry for help your all too blame and punishable. Now he passed you finally put afew videos up, you applaud Clauds death 19 minutes into a football game which is odd. You should stand in silence and be respectful dependant on the context off the passing. Then you ask for donations which will probably fill the lining of your pocket! I don't care how much Claude thought Robbie and the rest of em were friends. At the end of the day you failed to be there for him in his most dier times and failed to completely and ironically miss a suicide message and plea from Claude who was supposely to be your 'friend'. All of you from him to the rest of em should be utterly ashamed of themselves and dare I say it during a pandemic whilst alot of peole are suffering and your having the time of your life you all are the conspiracy to the crime itself. Least of all you had a major part in propelling Claude into the limelight but you was never really there for him in his dier much needed times which actually shows how much a 'true friend' you was. No support, no help, no nothing especially when you must of knew he was on the brink. Its to little to late AFTV. Right from the begining the way AFTV has conducted itself has been poor to say the least. Now an employee has taken his life start thinking about what you post. Start thinking! Disgusting behaviour the lot of ya and should all be held accountable. Close and delete the channel and learn some fundametal human morals first! And stop trying to achieve more likes, more controversy, more comments, more subscribers just to fill the lining of your pocket. Drop the channel and go and learn how to be a true friend! I'm not expecting many AFTV people to agree with my opinion or understand my angle for that matter but that in itself says alot about your fan base! I'm big enough and ugly enough to know when something don't smell right. And this all together ain't weighing up cortectly! Should all be ashamed of yourselfs!

  • Always enjoyed listening to Claude. He was a proper football supporter who wasn't shy about speaking his mind. My thoughts go to all his family and friends at this difficult time. I hope some Arsenal fans can make him a banner for when the supporters are eventually allowed back into the stadiums. R.I.P. to Heavy D as well. I only found out about that just now. Very sad :(

  • United Fan here. RIP Claude. You will be sorely missed.

  • He is in a better place now, Rest In peace Claude Callegari.

  • RIP Claude

  • Claude n Robbie... TRUE FRIENDSHIP 👍 NEVER GOONER FORGET.... R.I.P

  • An example why these lockdowns need to stop, people that support these lockdowns with a passion then feel sorry about this are straight up hypocrites. RIP to a true football fan

  • Started watching in 2013-2014 , around when I started following Arsenal after being introduced in Cali by my college roommate. Claude was always the first interview I went to. The tempered enthusiasm, and unabashed emotions he showed. He fired up the crowd every time. He's a huge part of this channel, he unfortunately said a slur which was caught on camera. How many people reading this can honestly say they've never said, or even thought of a racial slur! Even if its happening in the mind, its as bad as saying it out loud. We all do it, and 99% of the time its never malicious. Its never that deep. RIP to this guy, really really really gutted I won't hear his opinions again, even with his shitty baby boomer generational understanding of camera phones and webcams, zooming in ridiculously on his face. Never forgotten Claude C, his name is synonymous with Arsenal from this Bay Area Gooner. RIP and hope you are enjoying with your mom up there bro

  • RIP Claude 🙏 GBNF

  • Being a Manchester City fan use to love listening to claude knew his football right about wenger he should have stood down in 2014 after Arsenal beat Hull in the FA Cup Final you'll be sadly missed Claude RIP.

    • Rest in peace Claude Callegari and Heavy D

  • Didn’t stand up for him when it mattered. Dropped him over a relatively trivial moment of stupidity on his part. Worse, you defended him until it didn’t wash with a load virtue signallers then did a u turn. I get you have to protect your product, but this is a fan channel, it’s not the bbc.

    • He was a grandad.. didn't know that

  • Rip

  • RIP CLAUDE !!

  • Hi Robbie. I just heard the news. I'm a Leicester fan, football fan and fan of you and your channel. I really enjoy your videos and Claude's passionate, realistic and gentlemanly input was always well worth hearing. I'm very sorry to hear of the man's passing. Chin up Robbie.

  • Absolute legend of a Gunner. As a Spurs fan, RIP. Let’s be civil here

  • Rip. Legend.. A spurs fan.

  • Rip

  • There's a sense of calm and composure in Robbie mannerism like a steady water that cannot be disrupt through heavy tides, massive respect to Robbie

  • As a Spurs fan R.I.P CLAUDE TRULY A GREAT MAN

  • Devastating 💔

  • May he rest in peace

  • From a Chelsea fan 💙 God bless Claude And his family And everyone reading this ❤️💙❤️💙
