Now the dust has settled on a final day of the season that was, in truth, anything other than dramatic, we thought we'd turn our attentions to the nonsense doing the rounds on Twitter.


And it wasn't just on the internet where people were losing their minds. As the tweet below shows, someone in Sky Sports' graphics department also had a stinker.

However, Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen was also guilty of a foot in mouth moment as she attracted an angry response from fans of her husband's employers with this ill-advised tweet...

Now, that may not have been the wisest move by Coleen, but you have to question why so many people reacted so badly and felt they had to take her up on it.

Despite losing the title on the final day, the Liverpool dressing room went 'selfie' crazy, to use a term that fills Overreaction Theatre's stomach with bile.

Not only was Raheem Sterling indulging in the despicable modern phenomenon, he also managed to snap another couple of team-mates doing the same in the background.

Over at Manchester City, one celebrating City fan chose to rather bizarrely trumpet, on a t-shirt, the fact that Joleon Lescott has won two more Premier League titles than Steven Gerrard.

Manchester United fans also got in on the act, even flying a plane over Anfield to get their point across.

City understandably enjoyed their big day, but reserve goalkeeper Richard Wright go so carried away that he pulled a John Terry and donned full kit for the title celebrations.

Even James Milner thought it was a bit much for a player who has never made a single appearance for the club.

One of the more bizarre sights of the final day was Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi being booked for two counts of dissent within 10 seconds.

But even more bizarre than that was the reverence with which the striker, who will leave the club this summer, was was treated by this fan.

With the World Cup squad being announced on Monday, thoughts were also turning to whether Sunday's goals would influence Roy Hodgson's way of thinking at such a late stage.

Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson was touted:

As was Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle, who netted twice against Fulham.

And Fulham striker Cauley Woodrow.

But after an emotional day for all concerned, let's give the last word to West Brom keeper Ben Foster (sorry for the bad language).
