Football has long been a game of the people and since the advent of Twitter fans have never been closer to their footballing idols. Take a look at the Week in Tweet below for a round up of what Everton’s stars have been saying on Twitter
Roberto Martinez has tipped Everton’s rising star to go to this summer’s World Cup in Brazil, despite his somewhat patchy form in 2014. But it looks like our Ross is just happy with the way things are going at Goodison, posting this photo of the team celebrating Seamus Coleman’s winner on Saturday. Not quite a Lee Carsley piley-on, but I suppose they’re best left for winners against the RS. Couple of those next season please Ross.
A more recent post was this gem from a year which must have been hard to beat for the English Toffee. ‘Decent picture of Muhammad Ali in 1966’ reads his caption. The Blues in that photo went on to see their side come from two goals down at Wembley; a Mike Trebilcock double and a fine strike from Derek Temple completed a remarkable turnaround. Maybe next year eh Ross?
Deulofeu doesn’t Tweet very much…as long as you discount the hourly Spanish language ones. Never afraid to pull out a selfie or two, the Barcelona man was delighted with his opening goal against Cardiff, posting two photos of himself gunning down the Gwladys Street. Hopefully the next time he scores, there’ll be someone quick enough in the crowd to pretend to be the unsuspecting victim of his goal-bullets with a dramatic B-movie style machine-gun death. Hopefully.
Very important win today! Happy for 3 points and my goal! Thanks for the support ! COYB. pic.twitter.com/ie9o5Nq8Xi

More gun-toting celebration pics, less chihuahua-birthday selfies please Geri

I think I speak for the entire football world when I say we want to see Bryan back on the pitch in time for the World Cup in June. The Costa-Rican international’s recovery has surprised everyone and his progress is regularly documented via Twitter.
His latest batch of updates show a nice leg-stretch from Everton physio Richie Porter and an even nicer one of Bryan on a wobble-board being watched by a woman we presume to also be a physio.
If you can convince Bobby to sign her up for match-day duty Bryan, I’m sure you’ll have the appreciation of 30k + Evertonians every other week.

Of course, on behalf of all Blues, we wish Bryan an even speedier recovery from that terrible leg break at Stevenage.
It looks like Arouna has plenty of spare time on his hands while out with injury, so much so that Everton have packed him off to Thailand to stand next to big signs with ‘Chang’ on them
But he’s still got enough time to mingle with the fans on-line, responding superbly to this Renaissance-style drawing of the Ivorian. The likeness is…well, I think Arouna says it best…

Less than a year after his arrival on Merseyside, Arouna is already at ease with the Scouse twang. We all know a ‘like’ on the end of a sentence is a useful insurance tool against the very thing you’ve just said. We know it’s s**t as well Arouna, but it’s nice of you to pretend you like it.
