Word on the Tweet: Barton goes French and Ravel Morrison is a cinema buff

We found out that a footballer's taste in films is broader than you would expect, while Jamie O'Hara and Ben Foster update fans on their rehabilitation from injury
It's been another day of staggering drama for footballers in the land of Twitter, as a nation's idols express views on everything from Italian cuisine to existential philosophy.

The last 24 hours saw Jay DeMerit opine on who might be today's finest exponent of the noble art of screen acting, while Twitter favourite Joseph Barton once again displays a canny application of linguistics.

So, er... let's get to it, yeah?

"Just seen the joey Barton interview... Brilliant hahaha"
Cardiff City's Andrew Taylor shows that he has an appetite for comedy as well as drama, joining the ever-growing crowd that were promptly sent into stitches upon viewing the linguistic exploits of a certain Mr Barton.

"Good moaning"
Allo! Allo! to you too Joey Barton! You certainly can't fault the Marseille man's humour over his Bartonese gaffe.

"Shooting and 60yard passes today feeling great, fitness gettin there Phil having to hold me back"
The ever-modest Wolves midfielder Jamie O'Hara gives himself a quiet pat on the back on for his his on-going rehabilitation efforts on the training groud.

"Thanks for all the get well messages, jus had a little hernia type operation so nothing too major,cant wait to get back fit! #3rdintheleague"
West Brom's Ben Foster is clearly enjoying his side's heady start to the campaign, and assures fan that he'll be back in goal for the team soon.

"Anything could happen..."
Those of you who had ever doubted Gary Gardner's commitment to deep philosophical thought, hang your heads in shame, as the Aston Villa midfielder throws his followers this existential gem.

"Daniel Day Lewis might be the best actor of our time. Incredible performances in everything he does. #Lincoln"
Jay DeMerit of the Vancouver Whitecaps has seen the new Steven Spielberg offering and is duly impressed by its star man's central display. DeMerit recently played against Algeria with a split tongue that required five stitches, so presumably enjoyed Day-Lewis's There Will Be Blood, too.

"Need to watch you got served sometime soon"
Fellow connoisseur of the moving image, Ravel Morisson of Birmingham City, follows DeMerit's lead and expresses a desire to see another of the medium's modern classics.
