Tom Cleverley’s Premier League Twitter Q&A Went About As Well As You’d Expect

Because their social media department is still operating under the illusion that it’s 2008, the Premier League’s official Twitter account ran a Q&A session with new Aston Villa signing Tom Cleverley yesterday.

Given that we’re talking about a player that fans have actively petitioned against an international call-up for here, the results were…shall we say…thoroughly predictable.

Put it this way, if a Twitter Q&A starts with a desperate plea for sanity then it’s probably not going to pan out too well…


And lo, it began…

    Such vitriol from losers who never played the game, and in all likelihood still living with their parents. Thanks to them, TC is becoming the ultimate underdog story. Good on him for keeping his head up and not giving up. I hope he proves everybody wrong

    @bestie: Agree wholeheartedly.

  3. SG says:

    Funny as some of them are, he’s a mile better than any of those that have written those comments.

  4. Dean says:

    I see history repeating itself with splenetic comments that can genuinely harm people, Jason Lee and Andre Silenzi come to mind. Harsh, no need and incredibly short sighted by Villa. Cretins. BTW Forest fan!!

    In the right environment he will shine. Watched him for a season on loan at Wigan and he was quality. Shame his Everton move fell through as Martinez would get best out of him. Fingers crossed villa will finish above united anyway!

  6. Jarren says:

    He should use this as ammunition.

    How glorious it would be to have a stellar season with Villa and push himself back into the England squad.

    I hope he does.

    He’s going to have to put his head down and work hard.

    Prove to everyone why United signed him in the first place.

    But it’s not about being better than the Twitter users, is it? The man is a professional football player playing in one of the most competitive leagues in the world. I hope that he has a stellar season (and I’m nowhere near being a Villa fan)
