The Weekend On Social Media: Tiger Woods, Liverpool & Joey Barton

Social Media

As ever, social media was awash with reactions to the big sport stories of the weekend, some positive, some… less positive.

Undoubtedly the biggest sporting story of the weekend was Tiger Woods winning The Masters for the fifth time. Woods has been beset with physical and personal problems in recent years. In fact, at one point, it looked as though he may never play professional golf again.

So when he sank his winning putt on Sunday evening, claiming victory by a single shot, Twitter went into meltdown with fans revealing their joy at the result. Tennis legend Serena Williams was among them…

 

Another fan pointed out the true magnitude of Woods’ comeback…

 

 

However, one prominent golf writer seemingly wasn’t among the ecstatic Tiger fanbase.

 

 

Elsewhere on Sunday, it was a huge day in the Premier League as Man City travelled to Crystal Palace before Liverpool had a tricky fixture against Chelsea to navigate. One Liverpool fan felt that opposition fans weren’t treating Liverpool’s title bid with the respect it deserved.

 

 

And, in fairness, he might have had a point. This United fan seemed happy to pay a price for Liverpool slipping up.

 

 

And this Chelsea fan saw fit to apologise to the rest of the league for Chelsea’s inability to halt Liverpool’s title march.

 

 

Elswhere in England, Joey Barton was back in the headlines after his sides 4-2 drubbing away to Barnsley. The Fleetwood manager was arrested for an alleged assault on his opposition number, Daniel Stendel. Unsurprisingly the social media reaction was scathing.

 

 

And many saw fit to bring up Barton’s now deleted Tweet from 2011, which offered a slightly different stance on conflict resolution.
