Raging football vlogger, Shane Duffy’s forehead of doom, and John Barnes at the checkout – Tweets of the Week

The funniest and best football-related tweets, featuring a furious football vlogger, VAR, Shane Duffy’s forehead of doom, John Barnes, Serge Gnabry and Rene Higuita. 

There’s a lot going on in the football world right now, with the transfer market a hive of activity in the last month, while international football is the busiest it’s probably ever been, with the Fifa Women’s World Cup, Copa America, African Cup of Nations and Uefa U21 Euros all taking place at the same time.

Domestic football is out of sight and out of mind. So that’s why the organisers of the League Cup had to do something big to grab some attention. They got their best people together to brainstorm and come up with something original, left-of-centre and truly groundbreaking. And they came up with John Barnes and Ray Parlour doing the first round draw in a supermarket.

Yes, that really happened (as you’ll see for yourself when you scroll down). A tertiary football competition sponsored by a rancid energy drink rolled out a Liverpool legend and an Arsenal hero for a draw in June. JUNE. In a f*cking supermarket.

Oh, AFC Wimbledon got MK Dons in case you wondering.

First up, a contender for video of the year. 

VAR is winning people over, I see.

When every solution is Shane Duffy’s forehead, every problem is a football. 

This pug can recreate classic football moments for a nominal fee. 

Not sure if I love or hate John Barnes announcing the League Cup draw in a supermarket.

Why are these watermelons such a good metaphor for Real Madrid?

Who doesn’t love putting it top bins?

Does this count as a trophy for Arsenal?

Once you see it, you can’t unsee it. 

Take a moment to remember Rene Higuita, the most gloriously mental goalkeeper of all time.
