The funniest tweets from the world of football this week, featuring Sean Dyche’s brilliant press conference, Southampton’s 9-0 misery, one football club’s takeaway curry ritual, a controversial red card, and Roy Keane like you’ve never seen him before.
We think Dyche officially lost the plot at the moment he began talking about lookalikes.
The greatest #PremierLeague press conference of all time! 😂

We have so many questions for Carlisle United. How did this tradition start? Who decided on a curry? Why does Joe Riley look so miffed about it? The world deserves to know.
Win, lose or draw, Carlisle United award their Man of the Match with a takeaway curry after the game. Joe Riley’s face when he received a Korma after their 2-1 defeat last night has done me. Incredible pic.twitter.com/G8MrLIlXZR

A great point that I had never considered.
I’ve said this before, but Steve McManaman is actually a very good commentator considering he watches different games to what he’s commentating on

The first of many Ballon d’Or awards for Amad Diallo, of course.
People need to calm down about Amad Diallo and stop putting too much pressure on the future Ballon d’Or winner
