Word on the Tweet: Twitter goes El Clasico crazy
The clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid on Tuesday night was a major talking point, while Ashley Williams celebrated Capital One Cup success with a trip to Nando'sTwitter was awash with talk about Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Tuesday evening, with Norwich winger Robert Snodgrass particularly critical of some of the amateur dramatics.
Gary Neville was caught between a rock and a hard place, as the Clasico clashed with brother Phil's FA Cup tie against Oldham. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, or Oldham? Hmmmm.
Brotherly love, Clasico debate and Peri-Peri chicken, what more could you ask for? Here’s Goal.com's latest offering of The Word on the Tweet.
"Not the best of games but some of the dives have been crackers great acting aswell #sniper"
Norwich winger Robert Snodgrass pays tribute to the theatrics of Barcelona and Real Madrid's superstars – if the whole football thing doesn’t work out, I'm sure Jordi Alba would fit right in on the set of Hollyoaks. Oh wait, Snodgrass said "great acting".
"The referees positioning to block the Barca player was superb....great defensive nous!"
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is clearly amused by the referee's penalty box block on Lionel Messi.
"In my opinion, Varane showed again today what a great defender he is. Well done to him. #ElClasico"
Manchester City centre-back Vincent Kompany adorns Real Madrid's young French defender Raphael Varane with praise after he grabbed another goal against the Catalan giants.
"Right big decision My Brother or Messi/Ronaldo!"
Decisions, decisions. Given the lack of communication between the pair since, I think it's fair to say Gary Neville blew off brother Phil's match against Oldham and, as any sane person (other than Oldham and Everton fans) would do, watched the Clasico instead.
"I'm sorry but are Mike Oliver's eyes painted on tonight! That's a peno!!"
But fear not Phil Neville, for there was at least one person watching you against Oldham! Reading striker Noel Hunt, the very definition of a football hipster, watches the FA Cup instead of the Clasico, though he was not impressed with the refereeing.
"Open top bus followed by Nandos! Perfect day :)"
Ashley Williams has just won the Capital One Cup, the greatest achievement in Swansea's 100 year history, how does he celebrate? Spicy chicken, of course.
"People mentioning Bale in the same breath as @Cristiano + Messi really don't know football! Bale been 1 of best 2 in PL this year but he is not on CR7 + Messi's level yet...he carries on doing what he is doing for 2/3yrs then there can be a debate."
Rio Ferdinand (yes, him again) shoots down claims that Gareth Bale is playing on the same level as Messi and Ronaldo, and he knows football.
"Hearing '180' doesnt quite have the same effect as it does in darts when your being told how much your parking fine is!!"
QPR's on-loan winger Andros Townsend picks up a hefty fine – if only he hadn't parked on those DOUBLE yellow lines (see what I did there?).
