I have just signed up in order to follow the Opta stats folk. Are there any football personalities worth following? I don't want to read about what they had for breakfast each morning, but I would be quite keen to follow ones that post about football.

sidlowe is quite good to follow,though he does tweet in Spanish sometimes. Also FIFAcom should you want to follow them.

At the moment I have 5 opta ones (UK, France, Portugal, Spain and German - no Italian?) plus retro_mbm which has a load of old football videos. I've just followed Graham Speirs too. I'll probably look up the BBC ones later then.

I noticed Wilshere's and quite a few other Arsenal players were on his page too, but none of them looked very interesting so I just avoided them.

This guy posts a lot about on-goings in Italy, and here is the Italian Opta.

Cheers for those. I've added a few of them. I'll wait and see whether I'm getting an information overload before I add too many more :lol:

The best football related twitter account that I've seen is "Not the Big Sam" who is @TheBig_Sam .

Needless to say if you've ever wondered how Sam Allardyce really feels about Alex Ferguson then this is the account for you:

"On Skype with Sir Alex there. He didn't want to talk about Rooney. Or anything else. We just sat there in silence. Naked, awkward silence.

Then Sir Alex grabs his cock, waves it about & shouts "Use the force, Sammy!" In an instant, the tension is gone completely. Man's a genius"

If you're following all the real Opta accounts, might as well add @optajoke which is occasionally quite amusing

Have you tried Jay Emmanuel Thomas? @WEDITSJET. I honestly don't understand it. He must be one of the real cool kids, yo.

Edited to add a classic example;

I seem to have only just noticed that will Ferrell and adam sandler have joined Twitter. I have to some of their tweets have been pretty funny. And there was me thinking sandler had lost his touch years ago.

Emmanuel-Thomas is a proper gangsta.

I'll look up Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler. Both of them are bound to be pretty funny.

I couldn't find either Sandler or Ferrell, all the ones I found looked to be fakes.

I've offered Georgie Thompson a shoulder to cry on following her break-up with Dec, she's yet to reply :ph34r:

Sandler and Ferrell's are either fake or incredibly un-hilarious. Both could be quite possible.
