Well, more fool us as the goalkeeper went on a bit of a banter run on Twitter.
Perhaps Cech is just getting into the Bank Holiday spirit as the Czech international is not usually seen engaging in pleasantries on Twitter.
To be fair to Cech, he did not start it - he just finished it.
By the looks of their Twitter handle, a Manchester United fan tried to engage in some #topbantz with Cech regarding his demotion to number two at Chelsea. But the legendary keeper was quick with a smart response to the amusement of many users of the microblogging site.
Cech followed up his victorious retort with a simple question:
People send messages for banter ... But when you answer the same way , they get offended and are not happy ... Don't get it...

Other users tried to also get the better of Cech but he remained on good form.
Okay we will stop saying banter now - we don't want to annoy our colleague Mr Tom Adams.
What do you make of this? Should a professional footballer remain restrained in the face of such 'provocation'? Or was Cech well within his rights to reply in kind? Why do fans expect to have the right to abuse footballers and other athletes, but get upset when given the same treatment?
