It's that time of year where Arsenal's season starts to go down the toilet. We get the calls for Arsene Wenger to be sacked, banners are brought to grounds in anticipation of a loss and players make fools of themselves on social media.
Usually, it via a dressing room selfie or an instagram post. You rarely see professionals make a mistake on Twitter. Except Joleon Lescott that one time. His excuse of tweeting from his pocket while driving was flimsy at best, but that may have been topped by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's antics today.
The Ox played a full 90 minutes against Chelsea earlier, where Arsenal were beaten comfortably 3-1. Cue the lovable folks at ArsenalFanTV tweeting that 'WENGER HAD TO GO', which was to be expected as the Gunners now sit 12 points off the top of the table and look to once again be in a battle for fourth place.
While Arsenal have been used to the raging from Claude et al this season, they haven't seen their players openly expressing dissent. But the Ox's Twitter account briefly suggested today that Arsenal players were beginning to turn on Wenger.
Fam, an Arsenal fan spotted Oxlade-Chamberlain 'liking' an Arsenal Fan TV 'Wenger Out' tweet today.

He quickly unliked it but the damage was done. In order to try and lessen some of that damage, Oxlade-Chamberlain felt compelled to clarify his 'like' this evening.
I didn't mean to like that post earlier obviously... Didn't even realise I had!

Wenger's contract is set to end in the summer, so we could be seeing his last season. That'll certainly please some Arsenal fans, and possibly some Arsenal players.
