Poor Jack Wilshere, he can't even put up an innocent Throwback Thursday post on Instagram without one of his friends and former teammates taking the mick out of his footballing abilities.
And while Wojciech Szczesny's response to the Arsenal midfielder's social media post was done in good faith, complete with the obligatory crying laughing emoji, it didn't make the Polish goalkeeper's response any less savage.
The England international shared a picture of himself as a teenager (although he actually looks about eight in the photo), remembering his days as a Gunners youth prospect, sharing digs with Szczesny.
Wilshere accompanied the photograph with the caption, " #tbt to the digs days and living with the mad man @wojciech.szczesny1 can't believe he let me have my hair like this #stillbetterlookingthanhim"
Of course, the Juventus goalkeeper wasn't going to let this slight on his looks go unanswered, although we weren't imagining that the Poland international was going to go as nuclear as he did in his response to Wilshere.

Szczesny replied by saying, "Was then when you were still good at football?" which, even though it may be a joke, is in keeping with what quite a few football fans and pundits alike have said of Wilshere over the last couple of years.
Once thought of as the most promising English youngster of his generation, Wilshere seemed destined for superstardom when he broke into the Arsenal first team in 2008 as a 16-year-old, the now 25-year-old is on the fringes of Arsene Wenger's first XI, having spent last season on loan at Bournemouth. It was a loan spell that would finish a month prematurely after Wilshere suffered a season ending injury against Tottenham, in April.

Now back at the Emirates stadium, Wilshere is facing stiff competition for a place in Wengere's regular starting XI, with Granit Xhaka, Aaron Ramsey, Mohamed Elneny and Francis Coquelin all vying for starting berths.
The England international, who has 34 caps to his name, has seen his career blighted by a succession of injuries, with Wilshere only making more than 30 appearances in a season three times in his career and has failed to do so since the 2013/14 campaign.
The 25-year-old is yet to make a Premier League appearance so far, while Szczesny, on the other hand, has made a couple of Serie A appearances for Juventus.
