    Interlull is on so allow me a gratuitous thread dedicated to just one article. This is excellent. The flowchart is so on the money.

    Was definitely better when the likes of Rooney was cluelessly using it back in the day.

    The one about Rio picking him up from training?

    I think the Comms team at the various clubs have basically taken over all of the players accounts. Apart from, maybe, Peter Crouch?

    Crouch, Owen, Suarez, Neville, Carragher, Walker, Alli, Lingard, Kane, Lukaku, Alexander-Arnold and the likes are definitely keeping tabs on their own account, lots of others as well. It's only the "thanks for the support, we go again" messages that are probably instructed to their PR managers.

    It really is another level of banal. As said above, Crouch seems to have a personality but very few others. Rooney used to like taking the piss out of Piers Morgan too. Then there's twats like Mendy who is apparently a personality just because he posts that crying laughing emoji.

    I've found myself unfollowing more and more footballers because of how generic their tweets are.

    One my favourite examples of football Twitter nonsense was when the person who runs Ozil and Gundogan's accounts posted a tweet that was meant for the other one:

    Leverkusen as well, I think. Which is a bit laughable seeing a banter club doing banter.

    I imagine the majority of these guys are shielded and micromanaged by their PR team and agent anyway before they go out and tweet stuff, in case they end up saying something dumb to piss the general public or sponsors off.

    I can’t imagine anything too interesting or funny coming from a lot of these guys anyway. They’re boring as hell for the most part, although every once in a while you’ll get a sharp tongue like Zlatan or a down to earth like Peter Crouch.
