Wayne Rooney

In 2014, Wayne Rooney probably has an army of helper monkeys doing his social media bidding for him - but back in 2011 he was flying solo and by jingo it showed.

He wrote: "Hi rio do u want picking up in the morning pal" - without bothering to send it to its intended recipient Rio Ferdinand.
