Danny Murphy has been the general favourite in the polls since this site set up. Not only that, but his popularity as the number one candidate gradually rose from 33% of voters from the first poll back in April to a whopping 63% in the recently concluded off-season poll.

However, this tweet posted by TSF at 8.27pm on July 28th would suggest Murphy is not The Secret Footballer:

“I hear the Argentinian FA are to merge their top 2 leagues. Handy for River Plate…and I thought FIFA were bad.”

Not a great deal in that you might think. However, it’s all about the timing. This tweet was posted just as Murphy would have walked off the field of play in Fulham’s third qualifying round first-leg match away to RNK Split. It was also posted via web as opposed to mobile, so unlikely he cheekily got his phone out straight after coming off to tweet!

Thank you to Dominic Conquest and Mitch Moth for spotting this.

People will ask, ‘Was it a journalist/family member doing it in his place to throw people off the scent?’. Personally I wonder if TSF would really go to the bother? But it’s your thoughts I want so below is a poll to gauge opinion:

What's the deal with the Jul 28th tweet?

  • TSF isn't Danny Murphy (65%, 133 Votes)
  • Danny Murphy got someone to tweet on his behalf (35%, 71 Votes)

Total Voters: 204
