The funniest football tweets of the week, featuring the mystery of what Dominic Calvert-Lewin uses for shin pads, what biscuit best represents your football club, Pro Evolution Soccer, and the James siblings.
Ah, so that’s what he’s got in there.
For anyone wondering… this is what I use for my shinnys 👍🏽 pic.twitter.com/veDgHvwH6S

Speaking of biscuits, here’s the most scientific thing you’ll read all week.
Premier League clubs as biscuits, a thread:

CHELSEA – Maryland chocolate chip
Ushered in a new wave of biscuits to the UK. Popularised foreign-owned brands with their new flavours, & is probably to blame for Brexit. Objectively, they’re a nice tasting biscuit, & go pretty well with a brew. Morally though, you feel dirty.

We need Pro Evo graphics for everything, to be honest.
Not the most important thing happening in the world right now, but this bag of coffee has a Pro Evolution Soccer player profile graph. pic.twitter.com/PoE2cTmkQH

England won 5-0 on Thursday but we all know the real winner.
FT: We may have lost, but two years ago our nation had 66 points more than England had in the Eurovision 2019, so now we’re even. #engSMR

Kevin De Bruyne is a great footballer. Unless you’re from Wales. Then he’s a pest.
Ooh look at me I’m Kevin De Bruyne I can score good goals. Grow up. Pathetic.

No statistic could better show the disparity in quality between two teams.
Bayern Munich scored 116 goals in the time between Ireland scored their first and second goals under Stephen Kenny.

Sometimes football just sucks.
The National League have outdone themselves. Fining clubs up to £8k and suspended points deduction for failure to fulfil fixtures… in a season which has been declared null and void.
The league is run by the very, very worst of people in football. An utter shambles.

And sometimes it gets things right.

And lastly, a message from Fred.
Social media comments filled with hate and, above all, racism: we cannot feed that culture. We cannot aceppt it. We have to fight it always. We are bigger and better than that. Enough! pic.twitter.com/bR2ibDms6k
