Paul Green is down in Portman Road these days and they are clearly not paying him enough for his services as he cannot afford an agent who will give him decent advice. Paul Green deciding to subject himself to an #askgreen hashtag is a bit like Sean Fitzpatrick walking into a Socialist Party meeting and plonking himself down or John Waters immersing himself in a Gay Pride parade. The East Anglia club showed scant regard for their midfielder's mental health by subjecting him to this challenge.
Some players are plain unlucky. In truth, Paul Green has hardly been much worse than Glenn Whelan since he got in the Ireland team but once the word gets out there that someone is useless, everyone hops aboard. If there was a tweet complimenting him for his Man of the Match performance against Austria (highly contested of course) we missed it. Here are the funniest/most vitriolic tweets.

#AskGreen what is the furthest you have "successfully" passed a ball? (i.e as in it reached its designated target)

It could've been a Q & A with anyone but they picked you. This seems to happen a lot. How come? #askGreen

#askGREEN do you still hold a grudge after being overlooked for the Ballon D'Or last year?
