Word on the Tweet: Tributes pour in for Ashley Cole & Carragher

Elsewhere, Florent Malouda hits out at false rumours, Robert Snodgrass thanks those who voted him Norwich's player of the month for January and Rio Ferdinand talks cardigans
In today's edition of Word on the Tweet, the tributes pour in for Jamie Carragher following the defender's announcement on Thursday that he will retire at the end of the season, while Ashley Cole is also humbled by words of encouragement after his 100th England cap.

Meanwhile, Jay Bothroyd reminds us that footballers face daily problems like the the rest of us (dodgy traffic) while Rio Ferdinand reminds us that footballers face daily clothing problems just like the rest of us (dodgy cardigans).

So, without any further ado...
