#AskArsene backfires on Arsenal
It was intended to be a chance for Arsenal fans to ask questions of manager Arsene Wenger, but #AskArsene turned into an open invitation for a Twitter takeover of a different kind.
Amongst a batch of serious questions were dozens more that trolled the Arsenal manager, who had given up his time with many of his players away on international duty.
Some of the more genuine questions were dealt with by Wenger, including "Is there a Wenger version of the hairdryer treatment?" and "If you could change one decision in your managerial career, what would it be?" He even displayed a good sense of humour, when asked simply: "Chips":
Arsène says: "Yes I like chips! But I try not to abuse it because I have a diet - I have to prepare like a player" #AskArsene— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) November 12, 2013
But scores more questions were left unanswered - and indeed unasked by the club's Twitter account, including "Where can I get one of your jackets?", and "Wilshere is class. When is he going to move to one of the big English clubs?"
Will we roll over for United handing them the title or will they have won it the game before meaning we give a guard of honour? #AskArsene— Överhappy (@AudaciousStunt) February 3, 2013
