Arsenal fans on Twitter are split on the club’s tweet which highlighted a performance from 12 years ago, with the club currently in a state of turmoil.

The club’s official Twitter account posted a video on Wednesday remembering former Gunners striker Julio Baptista’s four goals against Liverpool in the EFL Cup.

However, to say that game was as good as it got for the former Brazil international in an Arsenal shirt may be putting it mildly. Of course, scoring four goals in a game is an astonishing feat (especially against a club like Liverpool), but the now-retired attacker only ever managed to bag himself a total of 10 in the 35 appearances he made whilst with the north Londoners (TransferMarkt).

Most fans weren’t having the club’s tweet and were disappointed that the Gunners were trying to shift the discourse to old memories.

One fan was quick to point out his fond memories of Arsenal in this match, rather than getting caught up in his fellow fans negativity.

What do we think?

It’s clear that Arsenal fans are not happy at the moment with the club finding themselves embroiled in daily condemnation from fans. It should be said that this was a wondrous night for the Gunners and most of us are guilty of enjoying a harmless piece of nostalgia. With that being said, though, things certainly haven’t been good enough on the pitch as of late and need to improve if the Gunners are to be in with a shout of making any new (positive) history in the near future.
