Arsenal's Misguided Tweet After 'Horrible Week' Draws Spectacular Abuse From Fans

The nuclear Arsenal Fan TV reaction to the Gunners' collapse at Man City was, perhaps, the most implosive we've ever seen Claude and the lads.

You can understand their frustration, of course. At this stage, Arsenal should have their own position in the Premier League table which has no bearing on the rest of the league; Chelsea in 1st, Man City in 2nd, Arsenal in Arsenalth, Liverpool 3rd and so on...

In the space of a week they've capitulated in two admittedly difficult fixtures. Per Opta, they've lost three games in which they've led this season - one more than during the entirety of their 2015/16 campaign. And then, of course, you have their Twitter account, which retains a remarkable capacity to piss fans off the world over, whatwith its b****r and its hideous, unwanted content.

Today, a seemingly innocuous tweet branding the week that was as 'horrible' was met with ferocious backlash; some fans were sick of the same old shit, while others were quick to point out that a glaring error in...sigh...the hashtag.


And while outrage over a hashtag may seem a bit OTT, the 'mistake' in question speaks to the fundamental disconnect between the people running football clubs' social media accounts and fans, which is the source of much frustration for pretty much every supporter of a high-end English club. Nonetheless, the anger here wasn't just about the failure on behalf of Arsenal's Twitter account to describe Arsenal as 'The' Arsenal.


So, eh, happy holidays, Spurs fans. And for the Gooners still reading, let's hope Santi Claus can fit a top class striker down the chimney in January.
