Arsenal fans on Twitter: Pain at the Britannia and a bad day for Wilshere

Written by

A week is a long time in football, but it can be an eternity for Arsenal fans.

Saturday’s disappointing defeat at Stoke continued an unconvincing start to the new season, with the Gunners ragged at the back during a 4-3 win against Leicester and lacklustre in front of goal at the Britannia Stadium.

The game certainly drew the ire of some fans, who had the following to say:

A couple of Gunners players came in for particular criticism, with Steven Gerrard, Martin Keown and even Stoke Police trolling Mesut Ozil’s anonymous display in the Potteries:

Elsewhere, Granit Xhaka was also in the firing line. Following a reckless and undisciplined performance against Leicester City on the opening day, @fannewsarsenal gave the Swiss star prior warning about their appraisal of his efforts at the Britannia:

Meanwhile, there has been mounting speculation about potential incoming and outgoings before the end of the summer transfer window on 31st August. The Gunners fans were keen to have their say, with Jack Wilshere the central focus after a tumultuous few days for the England midfielder. Continuously linked with a move to Newcastle after the story first broke in The Sun last week, he was also sent off for wresting Manchester City starlet Tyreke Wilson to the ground during an Under-23 game on Monday night.

Some fans showed support for Wilshere, claiming that he showcased the kind of desire and aggression that is so often lacking in the Gunners midfield:

All this without even mentioning Alexis Sanchez; it is sure to be another eventful season for Gunners’ fans!
