Many fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter in which Hammers centre-forward Michail Antonio reflected on the Irons’ recent draw with Arsenal.
Following the 3-3 draw with Mikel Arteta’s Gunners – a game in which Antonio registered two assists, but also missed two big chances for David Moyes’ side – the 30-year-old took to Twitter, claiming that the result against the Gunners was “hard to take” for him and his team, before suggesting that he will use the international break to work towards “putting it right” with a win in the Hammers’ next Premier League fixture.
In reaction to his comments, numerous fans of West Ham flocked to have their say on the comments, with many offering messages of support for the £70,000-per-week striker. However, some took the opportunity to criticise Antonio for the chances he missed in the game, as well as for his dip in form in recent weeks, with just two goals across his last nine league appearances. One supporter even accused the striker of “sulking”.
Do you think Antonio had a bad game against Arsenal?
So, what exactly did these West Ham United fans have to say in reaction to Michail Anotnio’s post-match comments?
“How about getting your finger out? Your game has dropped recently.”
“Feels like a loss almost but least we didn’t lose. That could be a vital point for us during the run-in, so keep the faith man and you did a lot of good things yesterday.”
“Just make sure you don’t miss another tap in. Love you.”
“A bootlace away from the winner. Still, a point gained in this unexpected season. Enjoy the rest and come back hungry for more.”
“The goals stopped coming when you said you were going to score 4 against Liverpool. Jinxed it.”
“Sulking when your teammate scores? Bad mentality.”
“Well played but the chance you missed gave me a heart attack.”
“Unlucky mate, recharge your batteries – one big push.”
