I often see people on Twitter asking around to see which Newcastle United players are actually legitimate, I looked around for a while and there wasn’t much about it to be honest.
I imagine a lot of people who read this blog have Twitter so I thought I’d do a small article regarding it on here, to make sure you lot weren’t being conned by a fake Cheik – Yes that was a small rhyme pun – sorry.
Right, I’ll start with the first teamers, There’s only a select few, there used to be more before our own fans drove Danny Simpson off Twitter without constant abuse, something which probably stops other players from joining the social networking site.
Sammy Ameobi – @Sammy_Ameobi
Demba Ba – @dembabafoot
Shane Ferguson – @shane_fergie
Jonas Gutierrez – @elgalgojonas
Ryan Taylor – @TaylorR1984
Rob Elliot – @the_dilsh
Yohan Cabaye – @YCabayeofficiel
Nile Ranger – @NilePowerRanger
Tim Krul – @TimKrul
Some of these first team players actually reply to fans, but I wouldn’t hold your breath, not that you can really blame them with the amount of messages they must recieve. Ryan Taylor is the banter king of Twitter and he regularly puts the Mackems in their place, Rob Elliot is good for replying to fans, Demba Ba sometimes to fans too. Others could probably do a bit more, but it’s still interesting to hear what’s going on, I even got a reply off Nile Ranger the other day, Ma Homeboi.
There’s also a number of youth players who you might be interested in following as they’re often the most outspoken ones and reply to fans.
Adam Campbell – @adamcampbell_
Stephen Folan – @StephenFolan
Remie Streete – @RemieStreete80
Alex Baird – @AlexBaird1994
Freddie Woodman – @80Woodman80
Brad Inman – @brad_inman8
JJ Hooper – @Jay_Hoops
There’s plenty of youth players there to follow, I might have missed some but it’s most of the ones that I know so I can’t do much better than that.
Last but not least we have Newcastle United goalkeeper coach and legend, Andy Woodman. He started a fight in the tunnel vs Sunderland and claimed he was defending “our badge”, love it. His Twitter is @GKGuruWoody , Get following him.
Hopefully this should let people know who to follow and who not to follow, I don’t think I’ve missed anyone out and everyone on the list is legit, so enjoy.
