Ikechi Anya tweeting about bread is exactly the sort of thing Twitter was made for


Ikecha Anya was keeping it real today as he bought himself a loaf of sliced brown bread.

To be more specific, the Watford striker bagged himself some stay-fresh wholemeal from Tesco, and then sent out one of our favourite ever tweets from a footballer.

Some unkind tweeters replied to say it was worthy of Boring James Milner.

Others wanted to know why the loaf was such an unusual shape.

We reckon we might have the answer to that one.

We think it may have been another of his jumping stunts gone horribly wrong.

Whatever, given he's a Scotland international, Anya should have plenty more time removed from the football bubble over the next couple of months. We look forward to more real-world observations.
