TOTW: We all love Adam Le Fondre

This week's Tweets of the Week is choc-a-bloc with big love for Adam Le Fondre. Oh, and some crazy transfer rumours and other things.

With two wins on a bounce and 3 wins from our last 5 games, things are a lot more positive from Mad Stad attendees. This week we have an Adam Le Fondre love-in and some ridiculous transfer rumours.

ALF scores goals like a machine, and apparently he has "wheels" now, too.
