Word on the Tweet: Kylie leaves Ashley Cole spinning around but Clarke Carlisle hates the Bee Gees

Meanwhile in Goal.com’s collection of the best and oddest Twitter messages, George Elokobi has a warning and two players fall asleep for very different reasons.
Footballers posting their musical tastes on Twitter is not uncommon, so it came as no shock to see Ashley Cole share his favourite tunes.

However, rather than the latest chart efforts, the Chelsea left-back is seemingly stuck in a time warp, and has been struggling to get Kylie Minogue out of his head.

Elsewhere the tough life of professional footballer is catching up with a couple of guys, and plenty more in Friday's Word on the Tweet.

"Wow @kylieminogue is hot in that video, spinning around, love the 90's"

Ashley Cole enjoys watching everyone’s favourite Australian pop princess a little too much, and forgets that song was actually released in 2000. Calm yourself, Ashley.

“For all those asking I had a Cyst removed from my knee this week, All went well & rehab started today. Ill be back training in a few weeks!”

Good news for West Brom fans, as Jerome Thomas is on the mend after an operation and will be fit again soon.

“Just realised the wedding I'm going to in the States shortly, coincides with the final day of the Ryder Cup. Aaaarrrgghhh!”

Oh, Gary Lineker. Has no-one ever told you about portable televisions? Or smart-phones? Or pretending to be ill? No?

“Going shopping for some table tennis gears, and then will show the boys that the Boss is back... Be warned...”

Be warned indeed, anyone who takes on George Elokobi ‏at a bit of the old wiff-waff. What a terrifying prospect.

“Glad to join sheffield wednesday on a month loan, met all the lads this morning... Looking forward to this month now!!!”

Ross Barkley is excited for his loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday from Everton, and gets straight down to business.

“Thanks for all the bday wishes ppl!! But the tweet to present ratio is a little off so I'm expecting several gifts are on the way?”

Fraizer Campbell is just never satisfied, is he? He celebrates his 25th birthday, and Twitter love just isn’t quite enough for the Sunderland man. Our present must have got lost in the post.

“Oh my days, need to sack the DJ on the York team bus. "How Deep Is Your Love?"?!? Really?!? #GaffersTunes”

PFA chairman Clarke Carlisle obviously isn’t a fan of the Bee Gees as his York City side make the long, long trip to Exeter.

“Felt like I was falling asleep at training! Lol jet lag is here... And hoping it goes quickly! #travel #zzzzz”

Chris Wood’s exertions seem to be catching up with him after an international break that saw him go to New Zealand for two World Cup qualifiers. At least he went all that way and got a game.

“Can't believe I fell asleep as started snoring during yoga this afternoon”

Sensing a theme here? Sammy Ameobi apparently can’t take the pace after an exhausting time doing the grasshopper.
