Word on the Tweet: Al-Habsi 'catches the chicken' as Roberts sticks up for Heskey

Also, Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler helps Blackburn supporters feel even better about their relegation whilst Joleon Lescott is treated like a child in his own home
It's time to delve into the world of Twitter to see just what the stars of English football have been getting up to after a crucial weekend in the Premier League.

Much of the chatter is focused on Blackburn's relegation at the hands of Wigan on Monday night but, as usual, there are plenty of other bizarre exchanges ...

"Im very pleased for the Clean sheet and also happy to catch that chicken LOL."

goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi kicks us off by expressing his delight at the Latics' 1-0 win. And his chicken-catching skills of course.

"The camp we had in Oman 3 months ago was very successful, pleased that all the good result came after that camp. Im so proud #Oman."

Before trying to give his homeland all the credit for his side's survival ...

"Have I just seen a young Blackburn fan burning his season ticket at the last home game of the season."

legend Robbie Fowler points out the flawed logic of an angry Rovers fan. Kick 'em when they're down, Robbie ...

"7 aside on an almost full size pitch #notideal"

Meanwhile, perpetually entertaining Newcastle forward Sammy Ameobi clearly has all the tools to succeed in professional football - like work-rate for example.

"Morning all, feel like a naughty school boy today gotta tidy my room B4 I go out. #GreatFun"

Manchester City
defender Joleon Lescott feels the wrath of his missus ...

"@JoleonLescott #WhippedLikeCream!"

Before defensive partner Vincent Kompany says what we're all thinking.

"Woken up with a smile on my face, now it's time to focus on the biggest day of my career to date, the 19th has me thirsty for success."

West Ham
striker Carlton Cole basks in his side's play-off success against Cardiff ...

"Every Teammate...and every Opponent will have the upmost respect for Hesk! But don't let that stop the humour!!"

Whilst Reading forward Jason Roberts sticks up for a similarly much-maligned striker. I suppose it's just the fans that Emile Heskey needs to convince now then.

"“@BrosephBartley: @fizzer18 what made you sign for Everton? Honestly!” David moyes"

captain Phil Neville takes questions from his followers and reveals for all those who have looked into the cold eyes of David Moyes just how persuasive the Scot can be.

"I wouldn't open the curtains if those two nuggets were scrapping in my back garden..."

With British boxing's 'fight of the year' arranged between David Haye and Dereck Chisora, you won't find Joey Barton getting caught up in the hype.

"Lost my Keys again...."

Ishmael Miller could do with some help from the chap off Britain's Got Talent when the Nottingham Forest striker gets home.
