A not particularly in depth video shows the highlights of Manchester United’s season, while a mascot gets a bit too involved with a team talk, all in Social Shots.
In our brand new regular feature, we take a look at the best social media posts from across the world of football in the past 24 hours. 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….

This video will make good viewing for Liverpool and Man City fans 🤣

Griezmann was criticised last year for announcing his decision to stay at Atletico via an entire documentary. He’ll face even more backlash about it now.
So Griezmann made a whole dramatic documentary to announce that he is staying with Atletico Madrid just to join Barcelona a year later 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/NGKivyNKfi

It was play-off heartbreak for West Brom last night, with many of their regular penalty takers not being on the pitch for their shootout loss to Aston Villa. Ahmed Hegazi and Mason Holgate weren’t necessarily the players you’d expect to see taking spot kicks.
Looks like WBA pressed done by mistake on the pen takers screen

The options were so sparse that West Brom’s mascot could have even been chosen to take a penalty.
Last of a dying breed
They don’t make them like Daniele De Rossi any more.
A breed that will soon no longer exist in football. De Rossi was one of a kind. pic.twitter.com/dj1ezQiFMB
