He’s at it again. Mr Henry must be starting to enjoy Twitter, though the tweets weren’t all from fans this time around. . . .
This time (on the 6th July 2011), he started with some stats (my kind of guy!):
Interesting: from Jan 22 pts per game: Chelsea 2.06, Man Utd 2.06, LFC 2.00 Everton 1.75, ManCity 1.73, Arsenal 1.56, Spurs 1.56
Goal differences from Jan 22: LFC +19, Chelsea +17, Man Utd +17, ManCity +9, Everton +8, Arsenal +6, Spurs +3.
Certainly makes for impressive reading. But how did the Twitterverse respond?
AlanKingjnr: Hi John, it wil be harder this year as in my opinion utd have massively strengthened and city will be stronger
JWH: No doubt about it, Alan, they aren’t making it any easier. But we never thought anything here would come easily.
garethjohnstone: this is your 1st opportunity to back the club with transfer funds jwh. How are you finding? Easier or harder than exp’td?
JWH: Second, Gareth. We didn’t know what to expect in January. The fireworks were at the end. This time we’re trying to be…
georgio11: I find it great that you look into stats like these right in the middle of the MLB season.Great job so far,please continue
JWH: George, it’s just an indication of the potential despite crucial injuries down the stretch
WeltSchmertz7: I always defend LFC from outsiders’ critique, but some truth in comments that LFC were playing without the burden of pressure.
JWH: Seldom any pressure with the club!?
the15th: (re initial stats tweet) exactly John, why couldn’t you have got a move on and bought us last summer? ha
chimp_phil (replying to @the15th): cos then we wouldn’t have had the comedy of the ‘epic swindle’. 😉
JWH: Tragicomedy. Glad that’s over. Oh wait a minute, there’ll be another suit no doubt over the milk
1Walid1: the season doesnt start in January
JWH: Thank God
michieldehoog: apart from @SwissRamble, do you have other football reading recommendations?
JWH: How about http://www.liverpoolfc.tv ?
He finished with my personal favourite response…..
keane161: well done but what trophy did you win? You american scouse prick?

Once again, nicely handled Mr H. Now, how about some transfer gossip or stadium info. . . .
