‘Future captain’ – Arsenal fans on Twitter react to major club boost despite West Ham stalemate

The Arsenal supporters in the Transfer Tavern have been bitterly disappointed by their team’s recent run of form which has seen them go 3 matches without a victory in the Premier League.

After 18 months without a Premier League start for the club, Jack Wilshere was finally handed a starting berth by Arsene Wenger in the absence of the injured Aaron Ramsey last night.

Wilshere’s performance has been a major talking point amongst the Arsenal fans since the conclusion of proceedings.
