thumbnail Hello,

The Manchester City team-mates face off over the perennial word-based board game while Eden Hazard live-tweets his own nap and Ravel Morrison crowns the best ever footballer

Footballers have a reputation for not being the sharpest tools in the box. It's unfair, of course - they're as bright or as dim as the rest of us, except that most of them leave school early to join club academies or turn pro.

So it was good to see Joleon Lescott and Micah Richards engaging in some intellectual activity on their way to a Champions League date with Ajax - even if some of the words that they played in Scrabble were the likes of, well, "of".

Alongside the evidence of that game, Tuesday's journey into football's Twittersphere unearths Eden Hazard falling asleep and Ravel Morrison revealing his tip for the sport's best ever player. And no, it's not Ravel Morrison...

"45 mins to Holland, get a game of Scrabble in with Micah.
"Their can only be 1 winner, he wants the rematch but I've always been told quit while your ahead"

On the way to Manchester City's fixture against Ajax, Joleon Lescott pulls out 'avid' to earn bragging rights over Micah Richards.


"Morning TArmy.....in the Ice Bath ALREADY ....can't wait for training...might just wait for them out on the Pitch....Haha #eager"

"Petite sieste. ZzzZzzzZzzzZzz"

"Up and feeling fresh!! Shave time I think! Foam or gel?? Is there a difference?? Nivea, Gillette etc let us know pls!! #NotAnAdvert !!!"
Don't use either, Rio Ferdinand. Try WOTT's soon-to-be-patented method of releasing a rabid wolverine on its chin and seeing what happens.


"Morning tweeps!!!lfoggy morning...lets work and hopefully a tiny bit of sunshine will show up! #bigsession"
