Joey Barton was at it again on Twitter this week with some abusive, albeit, entertaining banter on the social networking site.
Barton was marching confidently towards the 2 million followers earlier in the week but was slightly flat when he discovered that one of the people who easily has him covered is teen pop sensation Justin Bieber. The Englishman took to Twitter to keep us updated of his quest for 2 million ‘Tweeps’ whilst stating his lack of fondness for Bieber who along with Katy Perry and Lady Gaga easily have him covered for ‘followship’.
“Not far off 2 million followers now. That is a perverse number of people. Freaks me out a bit, it does if i'm honest... #8ktogo,” he kicked off with.
Before adding: “Also just crossed 2 million follows mark. Only 30 odd million behind Bieber, Gaga and Perry. Every cloud....
This gem then followed, before a war of words with Bieber fans erupted: “If your over the age of 14 and are male and listen to Justin Bieber, then you my friend are on a slippery slope. #futureweirdo.”
“Mourinho on BeinSport speaking fluent French to the reporter! He's gone up in my estimations.
“Geeza asked him at start can you do it in French. He said 'Yes or English, Spanish, Portuguese. Upto you! Hahaha legend... #mourinho.”
Also watching the Round of 16 clash was Norwich City loanee Kei Kamara who produced a couple of pearls of wisdom.
“Dinner is ready and time to kick back and enjoy some good football#TheWorldsGame. I want the good team with the ball to Win :P,” he posted before the following, erm, classic…..
“Sir Alex Ferguson's chewing gum is older than Welbeck. #TruStory#FootballFact.”
United veteran Ryan Giggs made his 1,000th professional appearance in the loss to Madrid and received some adulation from an old mate.
“Giggs playing his 1000th career appearance against Real Madrid!#legeng #ChampionsLeague,” wrote Barcelona’s Gerard Pique.
“Mourinho is def next man utd manager I think .. What you think tweeps,” he asked.
Whilst Stoke City’s Michael Owen was not jumping on the Real bandwagon despite their triumph over former club United.
“Wasn't too impressed with Madrid. Until the sending off they were struggling. Sticking to my pre tournament fancies Bayern Munich to win it.”
“PSG squeeze through. Interesting when it really mattered Ancelotti kept Beckham sitting on his H&M's,” he mused.
