For even those among us who are not very well connected to the football circuit, FC Barcelona sounds familiar. Now, another name that several among us might not be as familiar with is PSG aka Paris Saint-German. How this comparatively lesser known name catapaulted to fame overnight is what has made February 14 a lot more memorable and even surprising for several football fans.
No, the team did not do anything special for Valentine’s day that suddenly gained them all this fandom. What they did is knocked out FC Barcelona 4-0 in their Champion Leagues match last night. PSG’s Angel di Maria gained hero status with his two goals that pushed the team to their victory. Twitter feels Barca lost miserably and in their record of taking down teams that lose, they let out all their savage trolling talent. You see, Twitter only likes their teams as long as they are on a winning streak. When popular FC Barca lost the match, Twitterati predictably lost all their calm!
The look on Barcelona’s face is just enough for Break Fast. Meanwhile the stick we’ll use to beat Bayern is still growing. Good morning.

Can’t believe I’m saying this. Barcelona can kiss the UCL goodbye this season. I’ve never been this broken since Chelsea knocked us out.___

Others of course, decided to continue being savage. Because what’s the point of being on Twitter if you do not every once in a while deliver some burns, right?

People are actually leaving Twitter because Barcelona lost 4-0? I suppose “Valentine’s Day 2017” won’t go down as a memorable one for them.

Seems like the people who had Barcelona as their Valentine ended the day with a broken heart. __

Barcelona got fucked 4-0 on the most romantic night of year & at the most romantic city in the world. Script.
