thumbnail Hello,

Friday's draw was the biggest talking point of the day, with Michael Owen already predicting the finalists, while there were congratulations for new Leeds boss Brian McDermott

Reaction to the Champions League semi-final draw dominated the Twitter world today, while Leeds United's appointment of Brian McDermott has set tongues wagging.

Bayern Munich were drawn against Barcelona while Real Madrid face Borussia Dortmund, and one soon-to-be-retired former England international has already predicted the two finalists.

Elsewhere Joey Barton has revealed his latest career ambition while Gary Lineker misplaces a rather important document. All this and more in Friday's edition of Goal.com's Word on the Tweet...

"Only a buffoon loses his passport 2 days before flying to US. Frantically trying to get a new one."
