      • Peaky Magpie

        Me neither Jezza,does my head in if I’m out eating somewhere and you see whole families totally ignoring each other but furiously tapping away at their phones/tablets.

        • Jezza

          It’s everywhere, Peaky. I can understand why people pay good money to go to events like football matches and concerts then spend the whole time looking down at a screen in their hands. I just don’t get this modern world.

      • Dillon Tovak

        I hate to break it to you Jezza but that is essentially what this is, just to a smaller audience.

    • kingfisher

      • MichaelMaximusMoose

        spot on

  • Leazes.

    The issue isn’t how many followers the player has but how few the club has, United do not communicate or do so reluctantly, and there’s probably a reason for that, they are a bunch of asset stripping crooks who operate under the cover of darkness and as silently as possible.

    • Clarko

      Newcastle are the 9th most followed Premier League team.

    I’m too old for Facebook – I’m over 14 years old

    • Mag_Ladd

      Good that this article is about Twitter and not Facebook then, isn’t it?

  • robbersdog

    The reason why Islam Slimani has so many twitter followers is his first name; one of the most common search terms on social media is ‘Islam’, so he’s probably attracting followers who have stumbled upon his Twitter account by accident.

  • kingfisher

    I wonder how many followers CHRISTIAN Benteke has then ?😁😁😁
