Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke F.C. - The Twitter Reaction to a Snoozer

New, comments

Well, since I had the joy of running the 7500 to Holte twitter feed today, Kirsten let me put together the Storify version of events for the recap tonight. Despite one of the most boring games ever played, one which seemed to confirm so many bad stereotypes of soccer, the twitter feed was rather a delight today. Stoke's negative tactics really seems to bring out the vitriol in everyone.

But before we get to the twitter stream, I think we should all have a gander at this fantastic statistic that Dan at Aston Villa Central figured out:

if you saw the darren bent infographic (http://bit.ly/gPw3u9) you'll know he scored for us every 158 mins before today. now it's every 148.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

 

Don't let anyone tell you that the Darren Bent signing wasn't worth it. He's earned every pence thus far and looks to be a wonderful anchor for the team going forward. I think it's pretty safe to say that without Bent, Villa would be playing Championship soccer next year.

And now, onto the twitter recap! Thanks to everyone who interacted with us via the site or twitter today, and be sure to give a follow to the people below. We sure do!
