West Ham fans react negatively to Arnautovic statistic

It is becoming increasingly difficult for those in charge of social media accounts to get it right, and indeed read the current situation.

After a defeat, it is better to post nothing than something that attempts to raise the spirits. That is just one of the rules.

West Ham’s official Twitter account is currently in a decent position when considering that the team finished their 2017-18 Premier League campaign with a 3-1 win over Everton at the weekend.

On Monday, a tweet was posted which pointed out that Marko Arnautovic’s 11 Premier League goals during the 2017-18 season was the most for a West Ham player in the top flight for 11 years.

However, instead of bringing praise from the supporters, many claimed that the statistic was embarrassing, and said that Javier Hernandez, who is set to leave this summer, would have broken that record if the Mexican was given enough opportunities to start throughout the season.

Sometimes it is difficult for social media accounts to win, and here is another example of things going wrong. A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
