We here in the Football Transfer Tavern know that sometimes football fans can be fickle – we see it every weekend. That is why we find the latest viral image we have been given so funny.
Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan is no stranger to making his feelings known on Twitter. In the past he has engaged in a war with Alan Sugar, Samir Nasri and Manchester United players, notably Rio Ferdinand and even witnessed #TearsForPiers trending in response to his beloved Gooners surrendering Robin van Persie to the Red Devils.
That is not what has gotten our attention today however. What has is the comparison of a tweet this weekend from Morgan compared to one just last season!
The change in Morgan’s opinion on Aaron Ramsey is hilarious, yet staggering! No one can deny that the Welshman has been sensational this season and is in tip top form. That is, in fairness, a contrast to last season at times.
Morgan was more than happy to lavish praise on the player this weekend after yet another goal scoring performance – and even had the cheek to quip he had supported the player throughout last season. In actual fact that is an out and out lie.
Twitter may be brilliant for many things, but it does not allow you to forget. Morgan noted last season that Arsene Wenger needed to drop Ramsey, and that he was a liability. Quite harsh really. Especially considering the long-term injury the former Cardiff City player had to overcome.
Now Morgan is on the bandwagon and fully behind Ramsey – quite if it is sarcasm or a genuine belief that he really did support Ramsey last season we do not know, but either way, Morgan has egg on his face.
As our landlord warns over pouring a pint, Twitter can come back to haunt more times that Didier Drogba puts goals past Arsenal!
