Once upon a time, footballer’s opinions were confined to exclusives in Shoot magazine and occasional sound bites prefixed with “At the end of the day…” in post-match interviews.

Footballer’s Tweets range from the banal to the downright bizarre. Luckily, Tom Skinner is here to read them all so you don’t have to. This week, he finds out what’s troubling Nile Ranger and uncovers Johan Djourou’s plans for world domination.
