If the Arsenal players want to stay focused on the game against Valencia on Thursday then my best advice to them is to stay off twitter because the fans will let you know what they think of you.
It is probably for the best that the players stay ignorant at the damage they have caused and go into the second leg of the Europa League semi-final in Spain thinking that all Gooners are behind them.

And if he thought all the responses would be positive he will have been shocked, very shocked.
Here is just a sample of some of the responses
Hope you enjoy your new club next season pal. X

About as much inspiration in your tweet as you and your colleagues show on the pitch!

And on it went though I will admit there were one or two supportive responses but they were in an absolute minority.
You have to think that the players have caught on to the raw emotion of the fans and the anger is not going to subside anytime soon.
Maybe if they win the Europa League it will die down but even then there will still be a lot of us that will not forgive this bunch of players and what they have done this season.
It is hard enough to go on Twitter and see all the crowing from Tottenham and Chelsea fans without having to read tweets from our own players going on about focus and such like.
We, the fans, were focussed, it was you the players that were not.
