Arsenal fans hijack Gareth Bale Twitter Question & Answer session

Bale In Net

Tottenham Hotspur held a question and answer session with winger Gareth Bale on Twitter this Wednesday. Unfortunately it proved more popular with Arsenal fans than Spurs.

Sometimes football teams and players use Twitter as a great outlet to get in touch with football fans and a wider audience on a slightly more personal level. These Q and A sessions have become quite popular over the years and usually go off without a hitch. The likes of Michael Owen have struggled in the past with fans taking it as an opportunity for endless banter to ensue.

Recently Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu did conduct a very well received one while Rio Ferdinand threw an impromptu one earlier in the week to help fend off the boredom of waiting on a train.

However Tottenham Hotspur and Gareth Bale have definitely suffered the most for this ideal. Bale opened up a question and answer session under the tag #spursqanda on Wednesday which unfortunately appeared to become hijacked by Arsenal fans and general mock merchants from the off.

Some even saw it as a great opportunity to simply lay into whoever they want…

Here is a collection of Tweets…
