Tweets of the Week – Peter Crouch memes and Roy Keane taking the piss

The best and funniest football-related tweets of the week, featuring Peter Crouch’s retirement, Steve Bruce going to Newcastle, Roy Keane being Roy Keane, and the USWNT are still making waves following their World Cup win. 

There are few players as beloved and unique as Peter Crouch, whose gangly features, height and style of play were as eye-catching as they were effective.

The former Liverpool and Burnley striker gained even more fans off the field with his dry, self-deprecating humour on Twitter, but this week it was everyone else’s turn to show their appreciation and have a cheeky joke at his expense.

Tributes poured in for the beanpole striker after he announced his retirement from football this week.

Crouch’s legacy will live on in perpetuity. 

Meanwhile in north London:

Newcastle United close in on their next manager.

The People’s Manager.

“Do you want to collect piss for a living like this guy?”

The 20 year challenge. 

Who wants to be the one to break it to him?

Imagine if more footballers spoke like this?

If you know, you know.

But sure look, we can’t be letting them get fair pay all the same. 

He must not have seen much of Dundalk so…
