The social media habits of football players are often pored over with a fine-tooth comb by all and sundry.

Almost to a man, many of the England team tweeted after the game, but what was noticeable is that many of the messages were virtually identical.

As a regular Twitter user, Gary Neville, often has a lot to say for himself, but he can’t be accused of being anything other than authentic.

That’s certainly his beef with the majority of the England team this morning, as his early morning message alluded to.

It’s well known that some high-profile stars do have social media teams to do their work, however, there clearly does need to be more originality shown in future.
