Banter. We love it especially when players get involved and it's a bit tasty (who can forget the Garcia v Polenz last season?). And this season the Hyundai A-League has a fast-fingered selection of tweeting players for you to follow.
Archie Thompson – (@10Archie)
Number of followers – 49,400
Why follow him? One of the great characters of the Hyundai A-League, what you see is what you get with Thompson and it’s the same with his Twitter antics. The Melbourne Victory attacker loves to have fun – a lot of the time at the expense of his team-mates – and with Besart Berisha now alongside him at the club there could be plenty to tweet about this season.
Vitor Saba – (@vitorsaba)
Number of followers –10,400
Why follow him? He’s only played a handful of minutes for Western Sydney Wanderers FC so far but the Brazilian is already on his way to becoming a cult hero at the club. Saba is not afraid to say what he thinks, regardless of what other people may think (check out his timeline shortly after the ACL quarter final first leg). That’s perfect for his Twitter followers.
Marcos Flores – (@MarcosFlores85)
Number of followers – 5698
Why follow him? Another genuine character of the competition, Flores is just as adept at providing some enjoyment with his tweets as he is on the pitch (giraffes make more sense these days!). He doesn’t take himself too seriously either, often poking fun at himself rather than others most of the time. And did I mention #FloresFlava?
