Social Media

“Any ideas for social media ahead of the match?”

“How about we set up an automated system to respond to any tweets with our hashtag”

“Perfect! There’s no way at all that can backfire...” https://twitter.com/realmadriden/status/1232643250114236416

people keep asking who has the most drip in Football, when the answer is obviously the translator from Gerrard's press conference today

Michael Oliver set to referee #LFC's trip to Watford on Saturday night #WATLIV

Chris Kavanagh named referee for Everton's clash with Man Utd on Sunday #EFC #MUFC #EVEMUN

Manchester derby would be the most likely chance but can’t see Solskjaer getting a third win against #MCFC this season at the moment

@RichardBuxton_ Unless united or Burnley can have a say in matters or even Arsenal depending on when that match is rearranged to.

Of course this is assuming #LFC go out of the FA Cup in a week’s time otherwise it’s all heading into the April 5 game at the Etihad Stadium, which is a pretty good narrative itself
