Weekend Social Media Reaction


There were some intriguing talking points over an action-packed weekend of sport and once again some of the reactions online were priceless.

Here are some tweets that caught our eye, including what was said about what Liverpool’s real problem is, and how one Arsenal defender grabbed the attention of a TV culinary star.

1) Richman finds funny side in stalemate

Man vs Food present Adam Richman is a very vocal about his passion, not only for worldwide cuisine, but also for his love of Tottenham.

Having seen his side secure a 1-1 draw against arch-rivals Arsenal (19/10 – Top-Four Finish) in the north London derby on Saturday, Richman took to Twitter to reveal a revelation about Gunners defender Nacho Monreal. Delicious!

2) Carragher talks up defence but explains key void

Former Liverpool defender and current Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher is never short of insight into the workings at Anfield.

After the disappointment of a goalless draw at rivals Everton on Sunday, Carragher was eager to press home the quality of the Reds defence this season.

However, the former England international claims Liverpool (9/4 – Premier League Outright) are paying the price for not bringing in a replacement for Philippe Coutinho after his move to Barcelona last season.

3) London, the new powerhouse of rugby league?

Having claimed what seemed like a big scalp in their opening game of the Super League season against Wakefield Trinity, London Broncos only went and took down the reigning champions Wigan Warriors (6/1 – Grand Final Winner) on Sunday.

The M62 corridor has been the traditional home of the 13-man form of the game but, after an exodus from the top flight, London are starting to cause a bit of a stir in Super League.

There is certainly no doubting the potential of the resources for the sport in the capital and the @Broncos__London twitter account was keen to point out the local lads starting to make waves in the top flight.

After Catalans Dragons won the Challenge Cup last season and London raising a few eyebrows, could the power from the north be starting to shift southwards?

4) The Townsend Transformer

The World Cup in the 15-man form of the game is edging ever closer, with plenty of speculation around where the international game is heading in rugby union.

But focusing on the tournament in Japan, the official Rugby World Cup Twitter account produced a picture of four Transformer characters depicting previous world champions.

The talented king of self-deprecation when it comes to Scottish rugby, Graham Love, was quick to put forward the hopes of Gregor Townsend’s side (8/5 to beat Wales on Saturday) for the tournament this year.

5) Talk about putting on a brave face

It was a day to forget for England’s cricketers on Saturday after they were thrashed by the West Indies in a seven-wicket defeat.

Having been bowled out for 113 runs, it was skipper Eoin Morgan who was tasked with putting on a brave face for the cameras after the ODI series was drawn 2-2.

Brilliant one day, embarrassing the next, which England (9/4 – World Cup 2019 Outright) will show up at the World Cup later this year?
