Two MLS clubs engage in the most polite war of words ever on Twitter
As footballing spats go it’s not quite up there with Fergie v Keane, but it’s just as entertaining.
It’s not nearly on a par with boxing in terms of the viciousness of the trash-talking, but occasionally a fairly feisty war of words will break out in footballing circles, be it between a player and manager, rival managers or clubs and certain sections of the media.
Never before has there been a more seething row than the one that broke out between rival MLS clubs Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps last night, however, as they apparently argued over who had the best claim to the bragging rights in the Pacific Northwest region.
Seething row, in fact, is probably the wrong choice of words; unfailingly polite disagreement is probably more appropriate. Basically, it won’t surprise you to learn that one of the clubs involved is from Canada, eh?
Can’t you just feel the venom spewing from every sentence?
If there was ever an actual football fight that could be compared to the one in print form, then we can’t think of one more suitable than this…
