Football has gone beyond having 22 grown-ups chasing a round leather object and leaving thousand either happy or sad to warfare of words, passion, love and hate amongst contemporary fans.
Whether your team won, lost or drew this weekend, enjoy the aftermath of the games with the best football tweets.

Raid the minibar, throw a TV out the window… demand a framed picture of Wes Hoolahan. Hope this hotel got a good review.
United already have 15% of last year's PL goal total.

The boring, ponderous, crab-like Manchester United have scored eight in their first two games. Unfortunately, they are yet to face a defence who know what they’re doing.
Our goalkeeper Mark Travers catches their keeper off his line and it goes over his head and into the net! (BS 2-3 Wey)

Every weekend should feature a goalkeeper, somewhere, scoring a heroic late winner. Weymouth’s on-loan Mark Travers did the honours this time round, and followed it up by tweeting as if he was a striker who’d scored a tap-in.

I don't know if it's the camera angle but the pitch looks too big

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, it seems, isn’t the sort to let the trifling matter of a serious knee ligament injury spoil his fun…

Irony 1-2 Confusion at Wembley on Sunday, as Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi scored at the wrong end…and prompted the same deadpan joke by everyone:
Morata missed a simple chance in front of that goal but Batshuayi proves he is a more deadly finisher at the moment…
— Mark Mann-Bryans (@MarkyMBryans) August 20, 2017
Sensational substitution from Conte. Batshuayi scores with practically his first touch.
