Arsenal Players Tweet Apologies for Losing Carling Cup Final
 

We’ve often spoken about Arsenal players and their prolific use of Twitter and recently spoke of some teammates’ banter on the site. Earlier today we also wrote about Cesc Fabregas using Twitter to show support for his team as they were to play against Birmingham City in the Carling Cup Final. However following on from that earlier story we now hear that Arsenal players have once again taken to Twitter, this time to tweet apologies to their fans following their gut-wrenching defeat.

Earlier Fabregas, who is currently unable to play because of injury, had urged that Robin van Persie, who was acting as captain in his place, should lift the cup in the event of an Arsenal win. Now though, van Persie, who scored for Arsenal in the team’s 2-1 defeat to Birmingham, has tweeted, “I’m very sorry that we didn’t bring CC back to north london! Thanks for ur support today! Sorry again!”, according to a report on Metro.

Wonder boy Jack Wilshere also went on Twitter and said, “All i can say is sorry to the fans..it hurts a lot i know but we must all stick together, still in 3 other comps! We have to move on! Sorry.” Bacary Sagna tweeted, “Just feel ashamed..sorry.” The result of the game couldn’t have been more miserable for Arsenal as only one minute before full time the score was 1-1 and the game looked to be heading for extra time. However confusion between Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and Laurent Koscielny left an easy goal wide open for Birmingham’s Obafemi Martins and it was this that lost Arsenal the match.

Cesc Fabregas continued to show a positive use of Twitter and also good sportsmanship by tweeting, “Congratulations to Birmingham. This team has great potential and there r still great targets to play for this season. Thanks for ur support.” If you want to find out more about the match itself then check out a review of the game over on Sky Sports.
