The funniest and best football-related tweets from the week gone by, featuring Raheem Sterling, an exquisite Virgil Van Dijk pass, Brexit, Postman Pat, and a burger from outer space.
The week began with Raheem Sterling shutting up the racist mob.
The Manchester City winger scored in England’s 5-1 win away at Montenegro on Monday evening, when the home fans were heard performing racist chants.

We need to see more and more of these kind of shots.

Look at the curvature on Virgil Van Dijk’s pass for Sadio Mane’s goal against Bayern Munich earlier this month, which helped Liverpool on their way to victory in the Champions League.
Speaking of Europe…
Leave means Leave, or something.

Postman Pat, Balon d’Or winner 2019.
If Pogba did this, there’d be a 3 hour long documentary about it on Sky Sports, but since it’s Postman Pat nobody will bat an eye pic.twitter.com/8GWmpGxH4O

The game is not what it used to be.

The Southampton striker was really keen to take that corner come high or hell water.
Made 100 times better by the commentary.

Another blow struck for the Irish.
This brought a smile to my face, as I’m sure it will many Irish football supporters! Our man Seamus Coleman with the nutmeg on Declan Rice, haha! #bitored #coybig #EFCawayday #PremierLeagueMornings pic.twitter.com/ryhMIPqdXB

A particularly good night for Seamus Coleman, who assisted Bernard for Everton’s second in their 2-0 win over West Ham United. The full-back has rediscovered his best form.
The Old Firm encapsulated in one tweet:

And now for something completely different.
Not a single tweet, but a thread from Colchester United, and the story of how a burger from space ended up in the club’s possession.
So as you can probably guess, the world of football isn't like any normal business at the best of times.
But what happened on Wednesday at #ColU took it to a whole new level.
Settle in, this is worth sticking around for. pic.twitter.com/t0IWncXvfG
