Green had to pay £50. The FA is a non-profit organisation so it has put all monies collected from fines back into the game, from grass-roots level upwards. The FA has made over £350,000 in Rio Ferdinand was punished with a £25,000 fine for referring to the mother of a * Twitter user with the Caribbean slang term "sket", which means promiscuous girl or woman. It seems however that Rio didn't learn his leason as he was earlier fined £45,000 to referring to Ashley Cole as a 'Choc Ice' - a term that implies somebody is black on the outside and white on the inside. This was after Ashley gave evidence in support of his then Chelsea team-mate, John Terry, who had been accused of racially abusing Ferdinand's younger brother, Anton. Twitter fines since 2011. Here's a round up some of the biggest fines. The £90,000 fine Ashley Cole received for calling the FA a "bunch of tw@ts" in a tweet remains the largest handed out by the governing body. AON In 2014 Tottenham Hotspur defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto was fined £50,000 for his message in support of Nicolas Anelka's "quenelle" gesture. Assou-Ekotto was also banned for three games. Ryan Babel, then of Liverpool, became the first player to be fined £10,000 after he posted a photograph of the referee Howard Webb mocked up in a Manchester United shirt AIG West Ham United striker Carlton Cole had to pay £20,000 in 2011 for comments he posted during England's friendly against Ghana.

In fact in the 2014/15 season of the Barclays Premier League, Chelsea, who eventually won the title, were also on the receiving end of the most positive tweets. Obviously this takes into account how some clubs generate mentions online for things unrelated to league position. Managers being sacked (Aston Villa), European competitions (Everton) and club scandals (Pearson at Leicester City) all made a big impact. But this also shows clearly how some clubs have larger online followings than their Premier League position reflects. Liverpool sit in second place despite finishing sixth in the Premier League in 2014/15, whereas Manchester City, runners-up in the Premier League, sit in ninth place. netvouchercodes DO YOU FOLLOW YOUR TEAM?
