Welcome to another edition of the best football tweets of the week, where we still refuse to call Twitter ‘X’.
The Premier League provided a lot of inspiration for content this past week, but it was away from the pitch where the best stuff was being produced, including a slow-mo goal celebration you’ve surely all seen by now, the Malaga fans who have improvised on the club’s lack of transfer signings, and Burnley’s latest world-class transfer announcement.
Here we go!
The best football tweets of the week:
There have been some great slow-mo goal celebrations on TikTok over the years, but Karl Porter has perfected the art as part of his stand-up set. Take a bow, son.

Malaga supporters got tired of waiting for their club to make a transfer. So they ambushed tourists at the airport and greeted them as if they were new signings. Amazing scenes!
Adeptos do Málaga deslocaram-se de propósito ao aeroporto para darem as boas-vindas a vários desconhecidos numa manifestação contra a falta reforços no plantel, que desceu à terceira divisão😅

Daniel Levy may have hit the jackpot with Ange Postecoglou, who is probably the most popular Tottenham manager since Mauricio Pochettino.
Congrats to Daniel Levy for once again hiring the exact right manager almost entirely by accident
