The funniest and best football-related tweets from an absolutely mental week, featuring Vincent Kompany retiring to become a meme, Jon Walter’s pig headed prank, and Leeds falling apart again.
So Manchester City did it, they won The Treble. Or, at least a treble. On Saturday they captured the FA Cup following a kickaround in the park with a bunch of lads in yellow and black tops. Maybe next year they’ll face an actual challenge.
Vincent Kompany almost felt bad about inflicting that defeat on Watford. Almost.
Kompany's facial expression to Deeney after celebrating Jesus' goal to make it 5-0 should be its own meme.https://t.co/EEmYISNOgR

On the other side of the city however, Man United have really fallen on hard times of late.
Pep is having none of your ignorance, mate.
This is how easy it is to help normalize and slowly remove bias from women’s soccer. 👏🏽 pic.twitter.com/KKBSRShaBt

Can’t wait for the Netflix documentary.
Southampton’s kit launch is a spoof of the Fyre Festival documentary and it’s the best thing ever 🤣🤣🤣

Although that doesn’t lay a glove on this outrageously good video by the German national team ahead of the Fifa Women’s World Cup this summer.
Team Germany throwing straight 🔥🔥🔥

The story Jon Walters will be telling until his dying day.
“I put a pig’s head in Matty Etherington’s locker.” 🐷
“Matty thought Whelan did it so put it in his locker.”
“But Matty put it in Kenwyne Jones’ locker by mistake.”
“Kenwyne thought Whelan did it so put a brick through his car window!” 😳
Amazing story from @JonWalters19 😂 pic.twitter.com/m5rAMS0BEV

Match-going fans are now treating football as some sort of virtual reality experience they can actively engage in. This isn’t Tekken, lads.
Meanwhile in France, it was the referee who was lashing out at a player.
Lemme give you a play-by-play breakdown:
1. Player inadvertently runs into ref, knocking him down
2. Fallen ref tries to KICK player
3. Player turns around, “hey man wtf”
4. Ref sends him off 😂😭💀pic.twitter.com/cmYfYaAgTX

One of my favourite videos 🤣🤝

And finally, a throwback to an iconic moment.
Read: Manchester City’s FA Cup win demonstrates that we’ve entered an altogether new ball game
. @ColmBoohig labels Guardiola the ‘Messi of coaches’ and has an unfavourable comparison for @ManUtd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 🙈
It was a shortened pod this week, but still a solid listen. 🎧👌
