As the negative tweets rolled in, Samba defended his massive salary after putting in a shocker. First, he apologised to R's supporters for his poor first-half performance before the tweets poured in, a lot of them criticising him in regards to the amount of cash he pockets each week.

Norwich City loanee Kei Kamara was a little bit more light-hearted with some of his recent tweets, most notably on April Fool's Day.
Before he set the record straight.

West Brom keeper Ben Foster enjoyed a night out at the cinemas to see newly-released British thrilled 'Welcome To the Punch' but was uninterested in one of his fellow theatre-goers.
Jus got out of the cinema,"welcome to the punch" - not bad, what ruined it tho was the guy in the row behind us chucking up 1/2 way thru it!— Ben Foster (@BenFoster) April 2, 2013

Thiago silva was the boss today at the parc (psg. Best player on the field— Demba Ba (@dembabafoot) April 2, 2013
On the subject of Thiago Silva, our favourite Twitter performer Joey Barton heavily criticised the Brazilian earlier on Tuesday before having to eat his words later.
Thiago Silva. That the same pussy thatsbeen injured all season. Another over rated Brazilian. Sort your hamstrings out FatBoy...— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 2, 2013
Have to take back what I said about Thiago Silva being over rated today. Been immense tonight. Still looks like a overweight ladyboy though!— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 2, 2013
But Barton wasn't finished there
Baffles me, which way he's going. Is he a man changing to a woman or a woman changing to a man? Can't work it out.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 3, 2013
