Calling out Collymore: ex-Aston Villa star loses his cool in shock Twitter feud with FFC

Stan Collymore. The Aston Villa icon is many things, but a good sport he is certainly not.

The talkSPORT pundit has had an interesting weekend, first going public with his and Joleon Lescott’s seemingly never-ending text feud¬†and then staking a claim for a job as ‘Player Liason Officer’ with the relegated Birmingham outfit via an online blog.¬†Clearly, his CV and cover letter didn’t get a response from Randy Lerner.

Being the rather devilish bunch we are at Football FanCast, we felt compelled to get involved.

He then took the shocking step of deleting all the aforementioned tweets, possibly because he ran out of Player Liason Officers to aggressively tweet to us.

One lad had a pretty good theory…

That Collymore seemed to agree with…

Then err… this happened…

We’re still not too sure why.

At this point, the argument about Player Liason Officer is almost irrelevant. If Aston Villa were to hire one, would they really want it to be Collymore – a man who lost his cool at a meme posted by a website he’s never heard of?
