The best tweets of the week from the world of football, featuring a solution to concluding the season, Boris Johnson’s hands-on approach to the Coronavirus, and the greatest Premier League goal of the month competition of all time.
The video of a young Irish child that went around the world and lightened up everyone’s week in a very strange time.
When you’re a goalkeeper… and an only child… in self isolation… and trying to keep up with your training… 😂😂came up with this himself! I’m so impressed. #coronavirus #StayHomeStaySafe pic.twitter.com/FFzJ1LE3N1

In some cases though, it’s best to just leave it to the professionals.

That said, this was a pretty pointless video from Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Professional footballer kicks a ball into a massive gap and walks away like he’s done something near impossible https://t.co/3CqwV50TgZ

As good a solution to finishing the Premier League season as we have heard.
-finish this season in a short time frame when safe
-condense next season if needed
-open transfer window from May and run it all the way through 20/21 to give clubs agility
-extend player contracts to complete 19/20
-financial packages for clubs in need inc non-league

Never thought I’d see the day when Ashley Young was providing more helpful info in a Twitter thread during a health crisis than the leader of the UK, but here we are.
Realistically a supermarket is now your main risk at spreading this virus and even catching it. Speaking with family and friends at home it sounds like going to get food is just crazy. Remember, lockdown means lockdown!

Everyone showed their appreciation for those on the frontline on Thursday evening, of course.

But the PFMs never stop, not even during a pandemic.
