With the first weekend of Premier League fixtures completed, English football is finally settling into its usual groove again.
And so the footballers who inhabit it - easily distracted creatures they are - have already taken to sharing their other interests.
Jermaine Pennant tries his hand at being an 'In the Know', Sammy Ameobi flexes his brain muscles and Joey Barton becomes a pundit all in Wednesday's Word on the Tweet.
"Morning ladies n gents.... I walked in training and got a shock saw my friend Tom Huddleston.... On loan till end of season good signing"

The prospect of seeing Ricardo Carvalho's no-nonsense defending at Loftus Road gets the Joey Barton seal of approval.
"Dawson as well. Nice. Competition at the back now. Spent some money on recruits. Think it's now the poker equivalent of an all in move..."
And Barton is also suitably impressed by rumours linking Tottenham's Michael Dawson with QPR.
