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

- Advertisement -

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. 

you shouldn’t mess with the flag, except all the times it’s been done already and no one gave a shit 🫠 pic.twitter.com/xsedhN5qXx

Do you remember the riots of 2010 when Joey Barton and fellow patriots took to the streets in faux outrage about the St George’s cross in four different colours… pic.twitter.com/kdSGNRby9p

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.

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?!

Fun fact about the England flag is that in 1190 English merchants licenced its use from Genoa as a disguise to protect English ships in the Mediterranean & the King paid an annual licencing fee for its use. Eventually England stopped paying the fee & it just.. became our flag. pic.twitter.com/qBetWA8MAG

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

Do you think all of professional football is now a psy op to see how much stress Harry Kane can take before he goes on a killing spree in his Sketchers?
