Phil Jones TEAMtalk

Phil Jones was busy doing ‘front crawl’ at Bramall Lane, Tony Adams didn’t hold back on the BBC about Arsenal and shameless stuff from Joe Cole on BT Sport on Saturday, 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…


Phil Jones at his finest

Just Phil Jones doing ‘front crawl’, according to Gary Neville.


Pure smut from Dele!

Best bit of skill from the weekend? What about Dele Alli doing a madness at the London Stadium? Huge win for Tottenham this with the Jose Mourinho era off with a bang following that 3-2 win at West Ham.


Jose helps banish away day blues

And it looks like the new gaffer definitely enjoyed Tottenham’s first top flight away win since January.


Cole touting for business?

Pundit highlight of the weekend for us was Joe Cole here definitely not putting himself in the frame for the West Ham job on national TV. As your Nana used to say ‘Shy bairns get nowt!’


Big Tone tells it like it is

Even ‘Mr Arsenal’ himself Tony Adams struggled to find any positives from Arsenal’s abysmal display against Southampton on Saturday. Are the sands of time running out for Unai Emery?


LiVARpool’s league this year?

There were plenty left shaking their heads – Paul Merson among them – by another virtually unfamothable VAR decision to disallow a Crystal Palace goal against Liverpool at the weekend.



From hero to zero

Some week for Gareth Bale. He started it by helping guide Wales to Euro 2020 and ended it by getting absolute pelters from the Real Madrid fans at the Bernebeu. Another example of how social media pics can have serious consequences in the workplace!


VAR in the spotlight again

Another weekend. Another Premier League goal ruled out as a player’s armpit was offside. Anyone else reckon VAR is beginning to stink?


Standing shoulder to shoulder

Ajax and Heracles players stood still for the first minute after kick-off, as part of an anti-racism protest across the Netherlands’ top two divisions over the weekend. Great gesture.


Guess who’s back, back again?

Manchester United failed to win again at the weekend and raised more than a few eyebrows with their decision to start with Phil Jones at Bramall Lane


De Gea still No. 1 for Red Devils

Collectively Manchester United just weren’t at the races in the first half at Bramall Lane on Sunday. Thankfully for them David De Gea was. Incredible stuff this from the Spaniard.


Sack race hotting up

Horrible weekend for fans of Arsenal, Everton and West Ham and after the weekend’s results the bookies reckon Marco Silva is now hot favourite to be the next top flight boss to lose his job.


On this Day

On this very day 27 years ago Dutch master Marco Van Basten was busy reminding folk that he was still one of the finest strikers in Europe. That overhead kick though. Wow.
