Nothing quite gets our blood pumping on a Monday afternoon like a good ol’ fashioned Twitter Q&A with an under-performing footballer.
And we are happy to report that some truly brilliant tweets were aimed at the England international….

It was either a very brave or an exceptionally stupid decision for Carrick to face the public so soon after losing 2-1 to Mark Hughes’ men at the Britannia Stadium, and following a skim through the tweets sent to the 32-year-old, we are definitely thinking the latter.
Here are some of the very best:
