Pep Guardiola Bruno Fernandes TEAMtalk

Bruno Fernandes puts Pep Guardiola in his place, while Cristiano Ronaldo shakes hands with imaginary fans ahead of Juventus’ game, all in Social Shots.

In our weekly feature, we take a look at the best social media posts from across the world of football over the weekend. Football and social media can go hand in hand, but not everyone gets it right. Here, we celebrate those that do, highlighting the posts that have made us chuckle, the videos of wonder goals that we’ve just had to watch again, or just anything we felt simply had to be shared…


Insane Shelvey pass

Just sit back and watch…

No handshakes here!

The Premier League suspended the pre-match handshake ritual to curb the coronavirus pandemic over the weekend. Post-match hugs however were thankfully still very much on the menu.

Mixed emotions for Mr Klopp

Jurgen Klopp admitted he regretted celebrating Liverpool’s winner against Bournemouth in the direction of linesman Stuart Burt at Anfield on Saturday afternoon. The German had been frustrated over an earlier VAR decision not to chalk off Callum Wilson’s opening goal.

Jose gets tough on Tanguy

Make or break stuff from Jose Mourinho, who called out Tanguy Ndombele in the press following Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Burnley. In years gone by Mourinho was a past master when it came to getting the best out of his players, but you have to question whether or not this is good man management?

Don’t give up your day job, Mason

Chelsea battered Everton on Sunday with this goal from Mason Mount the pick. It was a very smart finish from the England youngster, though we are not sure about that celebration!

More champagne stuff from Bruno

Bruno Fernandes with the ‘assist’ of the weekend as Manchester United completed a league double over rivals Manchester City. The Red Devils are now unbeaten in their last 10 matches in all competitions.

Shush Pep!

Roy not too Keane as Richards reminisces

Roy Keane and Micah Richards had a funny bit of back-and-forth ahead of the Manchester derby on Sunday, with Richards standing his ground after the Irishman questioned the impact he had as a youngster coming through. TV gold gents, TV gold.

The banter then continued during the ad break with Gary Neville quick to recognise this was dynamite content for social media!


Ronaldo makes time for his fans

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo tries to see the funny side as Italy attempts to curtail the spread of Coronavirus.

Betis blow for Los Blancos

In Spain Real Betis threw the title race wide open again as Real Madrid lost 2-1 to hand the initiative back to Barcelona.

On this Day

On this day in 1985 Kevin Sheedy achieved notoriety by scoring a twice-taken free-kick for holders Everton in the FA Cup. Also, we knows it was the 80s but some of the tackling in this game had to be seen to be believed!
