Tweets of the Week: England flag row and the worst shot of all-time

It’s time for another round of the best and funniest tweets on Football Twitter from the past week. 

And oh boy is there a lot to get through. There was the small matter of the St. George’s cross being redesigned, while one of Chelsea’s star players hit an indescribable shot.

There’s also Richarlison bullying one of his Spurs’ teammates in virtual reality, a debate on whether Son Heung-min would be a better leader than Winston Churchill, Nottingham Forest’s points deduction, and so much more.


When this week started, I bet Nike didn’t think this tweet would kick off an online furore that’s still ongoing. 

England flag controversy ignores the real scandal

Weirdly, no one noticed all the other times the St. George’s cross was altered on an England jersey. 

The mere sight of the new cross is causing England fans up and down the country to spontaneously implode. 

Nike aren’t the only guilty party here. This lot belong in prison, or worse: Wales. 

I can’t believe they put this on the sacred England shirt. Disgusting.

For God’s sake, is nothing sacred anymore?

Wait, you mean to tell me the England flag is… stolen? This proud nation would never steal a thing from another country without permission – right?!

Shaking my head vigorously at this. Once again Marcus Rashford is pushing his agenda down our throats. 

Raheem Sterling may have committed the worst shot attempt in Premier League history. 

It gets worse the more you see it. 

Fantasy Premier League: Double gameweek fixtures confirmed

These two deserve their own reality TV show at this stage. 

The flag drama really took away from the real issues we should be talking about. 

Now we need to solves the real mystery. 

The Incel Derby is upon us. 

Nottingham Forest were deducted four points, but it could have been a lot worse. 

Who could be sold by Nottingham Forest following financial breach?

Man City just want a level playing field, is that so much to ask for?

Every points deduction in English top-flight football

It’s always a good time to enjoy a Spurs chicken breast. 

Does anyone actually want to make the top four?

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had an inexplicable meltdown over an innocuous question.

We’ve all made mistakes in life. 

Antonio Conte to Bayern Munich? This could be very funny, just not for Harry Kane. 

Dune 2 is finally in cinemas, not that Roy Keane is impressed with Paul Atreides’ carry-on. 

There’s love in those French eyes.
