Tweets of the Week: Premier League returns, Bellerin’s accent and the worst player reveal ever

The best and funniest football-related tweets of the week, featuring the start of the new Premier League season, how Spurs got around image rights, the worst player reveal video of all time, and Hector Bellerin’s bizarre accent. 

Ah, it’s good to have football back after a whole summer without it. Well, if you discount the international tournaments, like the Women’s World Cup, the Copa America and the Afcon. And Major League Soccer, Chinese Super League, League of Ireland, or any other domestic football scene that takes place in the summer. You know, apart from all of those, the football is back.

We’re talking, of course, about the Premier League, the sporting juggernaut that will soon subsume us all not before long. The turnstiles are back open to welcome match-going fans and the television companies that have fuelled the insatiable appetite of the English football supporter is back in full swing, ready to take your hard-earned money for the sake of a few hours of overpaid athletes kicking a ball around a field.

Don’t you just love that it’s back?! I won’t be watching much of it though. I’ll just be sitting here reading you all tweet about the football as you watch it. I live vicariously through you, dear reader.

The Premier League is back! Every club can finally put their well-laid plans into action.

Some teams enjoyed the opening weekend more than others. 

How do we know they’re not though?

The transfer window is closed — sorry, SLAMMED SHUT — and I for one cannot wait to see Spurs’ latest recruit in action.

Tottenham couldn’t compete with the signings Newcastle were able to make on Deadline Day, though. 

It’s hard to believe Crystal Palace actually put this out into the world. 

This is how low Manchester United have fallen — getting roasted by a pizza chain on Twitter. 

The transfer market 

Get you a man who talks about social issues with a Spanish Cockney accent. 

Ask stupid questions, get stupid answers. 

The timing of this gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
