Weekend Social Media Reaction


There were a number of major talking points over an action-packed weekend of sport and, as ever, the reaction online was fascinating.

Here are some tweets that caught our eye, including Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa struggling somewhat to pronounce the Whites’ next opponents.

1) I give up – Bielsa

It will be the only time you hear Bielsa say the words “I give up” this season but the passionate Leeds boss uttered those words in his press conference as his side look ahead to their final game of the regular season.

The Argentine has taken plaudits for his sportsmanship as Leeds played out a controversial 1-1 draw with Aston Villa, a result which means the Whites can’t go up automatically this season.

Moving on to their final regular season game, Bielsa, known for his detailed study of the opposition, might want to start by being able to pronounce their next opponents Ipswich, as this excellent clip from @WWEFC99 demonstrates.

2) De Gea the butt of the joke once more

Not for the first time this season, Manchester United keeper David de Gea was under the spotlight for another individual error for the Red Devils.

This time it was Chelsea who were the beneficiaries, with Marco Alonso pouncing on the fumbled rebound and squirming the ball past his fellow Spaniard.

Always one to find the funny side of any situation, the ‘Have I Got News For You’ twitter account were more than willing to poke fun at De Gea’s latest blunder.

3) Vettel claims Mercedes success boring

After another successful weekend at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix for Mercedes, the Silver Arrows success has not gone down too well with Ferrari ace Sebastian Vettel.

Mercedes have now managed one-twos in all of the first four races of the 2019 F1 campaign and it looks like their domination could continue for the remainder of the season.

With the signs looking ominous, Vettel, who claimed four Drivers’ Championships in a row while at Red Bull, said he felt Mercedes’ dominance was “boring”.

This video was picked up by @sebvettelnews over the weekend.

4) Try of the season?

Finally, for you rugby fans out there, you might want to take a look at this next link displaying what could be one of the best individual tries of the season.

London Irish full-back Alivereti Veitokani stole the show against Ealing Trailfinders with one of the best solo efforts you will see.

We’ll let the video from @CaqePepa_Inc and Vietokani’s feet do the talking shall we?
