First things first, we are not touching this whole Mayan end of the world rubbish. I mean seriously, there are over 23,000 nuclear warheads on this little planet of ours and we are concerned about a random calendar not flipping over?!
We are disregarding that topic.
Well ok so, just one nugget. Found this irresistible.
Ok, just that one, and a few more. Ex-footballers are interested in this whole end of the world thing, that, and chips.
At least Gary would appear to have been allowed enjoy his chips without fire falling from the skies. Quick thought, you know the way everyone is ranting on about how incredible Neville is as an unbiased commentator on all events footballing? Well, is it just us or is it odd that his very public Twitter avatar is basically Manchester United through and through? Shouldn’t he be trying to be seen to be continuously impartial in his new role? At least to the masses?
Back to the end of the world.
While Lineker is just having a laugh, can’t you actually picture the next chap standing there gazing intently at his watch?
Naturally, our lad Joey had to have an opinion on this.
In non end of the world related news, the draw for the sweet 16 of the Champions League was held yesterday. Just in case you were busy stockpiling your nuclear fallout shelter, here it is again.
Real Madrid v Manchester United
Arsenal v Bayern Munich
Celtic v Juventus
Milan v Barcelona
Shakhtar Donetsk v Borussia Dortmund
Valencia v Paris Saint-Germain
Galatasaray v Schalke
Porto v Málaga
A couple of tasty encounters therein, to say the least. Opinions and commentary abounded on Twitter.
It is an odd World we live in, when you think about it, soccer stars glibly Tweeting each other over the Internet while we watch. Or, to be more accurate, Rio Ferdinand eating choccies in his boxers in front of his laptop tweeting Ronaldo’s assistant he hired to run his Twitter account.
As usual Gary just can’t take things seriously.
For those of you old enough to remember fondly, journalist Sid Lowe hits it right on the mark.
We miss Big Ron running riot among terrified United defenders. What a night that was. You would imagine Fergie and the gang would love to have this chap in his prime between the sticks when the two clubs meet in the last 16.
…or maybe this chap up front (in his prime, of course)
Rolling it up, we go to the Barcelona bench for another former famous player’s opinion
It will Cesc, and the view will be magnificent from the pine in Barcelona!
Finally on cups and things, Juan Mata is unintentionally hilarious..
We are sure all Chelsea fans will be super delighted to know that their team’s goal was to win the Europa League.
There it is, Happy Christmas to all from Word On The Tweet. Here’s to a fantastic festive season to one and all. Let’s leave the last word to an often pilloried young man, who still manages to get it right more often than not.
