Twitter ‘namesakes’ of Man Utd duo David Moyes and Robin Van Persie form support group
Two unsuspecting Twitter users with accounts names that sounds like the belong to Manchester United manager David Moyes and striker Robin Van Persie have rallied together to discuss their shared problems.
Sarah Moyes, of Polmont, Scotland, who has the @moyesy account, has been having a particular tough time recently.
She’s been discussing her unusual situation with Indian IT worker Ravi Visvesvara Prasad, who tweets as @RVP, and New York-based Ashley Van Buren, who’s account is @AVB.
Van Buren, who is often confused with former Chelsea and Spurs boss Andre Villas Boas, told Moyesy: “Same thing happened to me a few months back. It’s bizarre and frustrating, but it’ll (mostly) blow over.”
Moyesy replied: “Yeah I heard, I’m very much looking forward to it blowing over! x.”
At which point RVP chipped in: “I dont think it will ever stop or blow over. I’ve had it really bad since aug’12. kudos to the witty humorous way you handle it.”
Cue AVB with the hilarious punchline to the conversation: “My guy gets fired a lot. So I get some breaks.”
