Tweets of the Week: Soucek’s save and Nathan Jones – the fittest human in history

Some of the best tweets from the world of football this week, featuring Soucek’s save, Nathan Jones turning all David Brent, and Jarrad Branthwaite forced into an awkward conversation about Carlisle.

Nathan Jones goes all David Brent

Nathan Jones’ reign at Southampton came to an end this weekend and lasted less than three months, but provided enough soundbites to last a lifetime.

From his self-proclaimed titles as one of Europe’s best coaches and as ‘the fittest human being in history’, to wanting to test his courtship on those outside the Welsh border.

So many classics, in such a short period of time.

Carlisle – ‘The bloody end of the world’

Jarrad Branthwaite’s beloved Carlisle took a battering this week, as the Everton defender – impressing on loan at PSV Eindhoven – was forced into an awkward exchange with the Dutch media.

Guardiola keen to party like its 1999

The bomb-shell that was the Premier League’s charges against Manchester City dropped earlier this week, leading to endless speculation on the sanctions that could await the club.

Pep Guardiola’s press conference was box-office viewing, from taking a surprise pot-shot at Steven Gerrard to his plans for the possibility of lower league football.

Soucek’s save

Chelsea’s admin offered a new nomination for FIFA’s The Best Goalkeeper Award, after Tomas Soucek sneakily tipped Conor Gallagher’s effort around the post.

Soucek’s stop continued a mixed run of form for Chelsea, as Graham Potter attempts to mould the club’s wealth of new arrivals into a winning side.
