It was posted to West Ham’s official Twitter page with the caption: “Get used to seeing Jack Wilshere in Claret & Blue.”

But supporters were uninspired after witnessing the 26-year-old in action for the first time since he joined from Arsenal. 

One furious fan posted: “Possibly the worst video compilation I have ever seen.”

Another added: “Are you guys looking to play a lot of backward passes next season?”

While another said: “So I’m the only one who watches him and sees him giving the ball away, half hearted runs with no result.

“Back passing and awful first touches when in the box?”

The ex-England ace star penned a three-year deal with the Hammers after being released from Arsenal.

After spending 17 years with the Gunners, Wilshere was told he was not a part of Unai Emery’s plans.
