No I am not going to talk about the "premiership footballer" (who?s name rhymes with "Lion Wigs") who has been involved with Big Brother lovely Imogen Thomas (mind you, "woof woof", "ding dong", "hubba hubba"). No, that would be boring and irrelevant. What I wanted to write about was Everton 1st teamers on Twitter. I?ve just started to use Twitter. And in an initial spurt of enthusiasm I found some of our Saturday heroes and started to "follow" them. I?ve reproduced below a small sample of some of their recent "tweets"
By the way, for the non-twitterati: - "@name" means you are talking to that person "RT" = re-tweet where you forward to all someone?s tweet to you (like a radio request really)
So, after that detailed lesson, read on: -
Tim_CahillSo what do all these random thought ejaculations tell us? Well, absolutely bugger all. However I would like to place the following interpretation on these, some say "insightful tweets", some might say "time wasting bollocks": -

RT @Mathcourt20: @louissaha08 Top bloke was gutted when you left Man Utd! Can I get a RT for my sick brother who's having an operation 2moz?
@seamiecoleman23 great 1st season seamus-u just need to work on helping ur full back out more!!!
@seamiecoleman23 miss me at least it will give my back a breather from carrying u all season!
? There appears to be a genuine warmth and affection between: -
o The players themselves,
o The players and the club,
o And for the fans (us) Even Bily shows this sensitive side!!! (That said, I don?t read Russian so that tweet could be the Russian translation or him saying to some Oligarch, "for the love of God get me out of this chicken shit organisation!")
? Louis is a bit of a cult (loads of requests for retweets)
? Pip is central to the general camaraderie
Of course I am sure you could (and probably will) place a negative spin on the above.
Personally, I?ve got nothing else to say on this matter, except I?m sorry to have wasted your time (a bit like Twitter really). Now, if someone could tweet me links to risqué photos of Imogen I would be very grateful. Thank you.
* Boy do I wish I had submitted this article one day earlier!

Interesting stuff and good opening - one of Our Kid's mates was saying what a disgrace Lion Wigs, as you put it, was - until Our Kid googled a photo of Imogen Thomas and put it under his nose. Apparently he said "Oh...." and went very quiet. Never judge a man until you've walked a thousand steps in his Reebok Instante Pro boots - temptation can be a very powerful thing.....
As far as twitter's concerned - I'm not a follower / fan but it's part of the modern world, for now.
Toffeewebbers often critisise the OS for lack of information / censored opinions etc when this provides a possible glimpse into the real dynamics within the club / team etc.
However - I'm sure they've been told that if they are going to do it they need to behave themselves. I'm also sure that it's only a matter of time before one of them lets something slip if that is the case (what price Beckford...?). Alternatively maybe they are a tight knit group after all. Or is this just an extension of the EFC PR Machine (that's probably overdoing it but you know what I mean....!) Steve Round probably sat them all in a circle around the centre spot showing them how to do it. Who knows.
I know the rough, tough "I only care about what goes on the pitch" fans out there will see it all as a load of bollocks - and from one perspective they are absolutely correct.
However, if you want to get another perspective on what goes on within Everton FC then this might be up your street.
I'm sure if Nev tweeted "Bainesy and Rodders of 2 City - gutted :( " a few ears would prick up.

Nice top...might buy that one
Yeah, but please, not blue socks. I hate it when we switch every now and then to blue socks. Why can't we keep the same colours for home kit?
It should be part of our image: Blue, white, white.
I'll just buy a generic pair of white socks. Screw the Blue.

As for the kit; all I can really say is that Kaka's clothes don't fit him at all. He looks like he won a competition.

Whooops ? should have kept your nonsensical ramblings private.
