The best and funniest tweets of the week from the world of football, featuring one of the most slapstick goals ever, Eric Dier, Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho having a go at each other, and Man United’s transfer business.
Contender for Goal of the Year, this.
This Rijeka goal away to Copenhagen might be the funniest goal in years https://t.co/pygJrytusR

Eric Dier ran all night against Chelsea on Tuesday, including to the toilet during the middle of the game.
Strange scenes as @ericdier runs off the pitch to the dressing room, followed hastily by Mourinho. Then Dier runs back out to resume playing. Presumably he needed the loo. Players just don’t shit on the pitch anymore. What’s wrong with them?

Meanwhile, his manager took Frank Lampard down a peg with his famously sharp tongue.
Lampard & Mourinho really sniping at one another across the tech areas. 'F—— hell Frank, when you're losing 3-0 you're not standing up here'

This is what football is all about.
Leeds away always reminds me of being called a 'c***' by a guy in his late eighties with no teeth when he saw my scarf outside Elland Road. I was 13.

Man United’s transfer window in one gif:
It's not been a good summer window for #MUFC so far, but could they be closing in on a new winger? 👀

Fulham’s director of football got a lot of attention, and flak, for airing the club’s business on Twitter.
I apologize to @FulhamFC supporters for our performance tonight. We’ve looked to add centre-backs since Wembley, I’m sorry we haven’t yet as 2 got COVID + we lost a Free we thought was close + had another issue with a 4th CB. I promise players in + better efforts from this squad.

But as long as Fulham’s performances keep leading to spoken word Scott Parker content, then we’re happy.
