Stan Collymore disappointed by West Brom, hopes Villa have more class

West Brom The Hawthorns

Collymore has implied that a tweet sent out by West Bromwich Albion lacked class; hopes his former club Aston Villa avoid similar social media policies.

During the West Bromwich Albion and Manchester United match earlier this evening, Monday, the social media team at the Hawthorns may have committed a Twitter faux pas.

Within minutes of sending a post seemingly playing-down the talents of Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, the player in question scored for the away team - sending the WBA time-line into a frenzy.

It was a Tweet akin to Chelsea-mad Tim Lovejoy's memorably statement "it's only Ray Parlour" just moments before the Englishman netted for Arsenal en route to a 2-0 victory.

And it appears to have irritated Aston Villa-supporting Stan Collymore, who believes such banter lacks class.

"Villa fans if our Twitter feed ever tried to be clever and funny, [we should] tell them to stick to the basics," he announced, before adding: "Leave the classless stuff to other clubs."

West Brom returned a 2-2 draw with United.
