Word on the Tweet: Love is in the air

Come one, come all: It's Valentine's Day, and the stars of football are tweeting messages to loved ones, while there is the fallout from a grand night of Champions League action
Roses are red, violets are blue, footballers are on Twitter, and we are too! That's right, it is time for the Word on the Tweet, where love is well and truly in the air.

We have players wishing their followers a lovely day, one demanding a card from his captain and, of course, there is the fallout from a fine night of Champions League football as Manchester United drew 1-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu with Real Madrid.

"Happy valentines day to all da hot spices out there! Nuff love peeps :-)xx'"

Andre Wisdom
kicks off the messages of love (I think). Can anyone confirm or rule out what the Liverpool defender means by "all da hot spices out there"?

"I wish u all a nice valentine day! God bless..."

West Brom
striker Romelu Lukaku (pictured) gives everyone his best for the day. Love you too, Romelu!!!

"Morning all 14th feb valentines day cant say im a fan but please send me some pics of the gifts that you sent/recieved-will post mine later"

Is Everton captain Phil Neville trying to get some last-minute shopping ideas from his followers? We here at WOTT really hope he hasn't forgotten...

"Where's my card @fizzer18?"

Uh-oh. Phil Neville (aka @fizzer18) may just be in trouble with team-mate Darron Gibson, who doesn't seem to have gotten his meaningless piece of paper wonderful card this morning. It's just lost in the post, I'm sure!

"Happy valentines day for all people in love!!!!! Have a good day and hopefully we can give you a win as well :-)"

left-back Jose Enrique wishes a very happy Valentine's Day to his followers ahead of their game against Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League. But what if they're not Liverpool fans, Jose? What if they don't want you to win?

"I'm out of game tonight through suspension - 3 yellow cards in the Champions League. Let's go Blues! #geezers"

defender David Luiz will miss his side's Europa League tie against Sparta Prague tonight. Poor geezer.

"Anyone else feel like they seen that @cristiano header from last night somewhere before?? #Moscow2008 !?"

Rio Ferdinand
gets a sense of deja vu after former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo's brilliant header against Manchester United, which levelled the tie at 1-1 with one game to go..

"What an exciting game yesterday!"

(pictured) gives us his somewhat understated view on the match.

"Off to Dubai races with the lads. Anyone got any tips??"

defender Titus Bramble is off to see the gee-gees. Our advice? Steer well clear of the mince-meat sandwiches.
