When I clicked on Jack Wilshere’s cheeky ‘cajones’ tweet on Saturday evening, I was actually surprised to see a lot of the responses were from angry Watford fans.

After Arsenal lost 2-1 away to Watford in October, Troy Deeney, who scored a penalty during the match after coming on as a second-half sub, claimed that Arsenal had no ‘cajones’.

“I’ve heard Wenger’s already blaming (the decision) as the reason why they lost,” the striker told BT Sport post-match. “I’m not going to be the one to tell Mr Wenger about himself, but there’s a reason why they lost and it wasn’t because of one penalty.

“I’ll have to watch what I say. It’s (having) a bit of cojones, a bit of nuts.”

It seems the comment has stuck in Wilshere’s head, since he took to Twitter the night before the clash on order to rally the troops.

The 26-year-old apparently wants to prove which side has the ‘cajones’ this time.


As much as I love the fighting talk, most Gooners, including myself, are slightly worried that this tweet could come back around and Wilshere on the backside.

Arsenal aren’t exactly in the position to be dishing out threats at the moment.

They may have just won a match against AC Milan but they lost to Brighton last Sunday.

Aside from the Arsenal fans soiling themselves because we’ll never hear the end of it if the Hornets win at Ashburton Groves this afternoon (Sunday), Wilshere’s mentions were full of angry Hornets.

Some Watford fans pointed out that, during the match in question, Deeney had actually been right. Arsenal had gone ahead first and then completely downed tools after the penalty. In fact, they reckon Wilshere and his teammates should just ‘get over’ Deeney’s jibe.

Others just posted gifs of Watford’s goals against Arsenal and some sent abuse.
