It takes a lot of hard work to squander a 2-0 lead, even harder to do so when West Ham forward Andy Carroll is the one taking all of the shots. But where there’s a will, there’s a way and even the most diehard Arsenal fans often concede that the team will find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
A hat trick from Andy Carroll erased Arsenal’s lead against West Ham United and promptly drew the anticipated ‘doom and gloom’ reactions from fans who are ready to pull the plug on the team.
The Gunners managed to equalize thanks to a rare goal from Laurent Koscielny, but not before fans left a few wonderful Twitter nuggets made their way into the social mediascape.

This is absolute cataclysmic uselessness. Totally unimaginable. And very very predictable. Why am I not surprised? #Arsenal
