1) FANS REACT FURIOUSLY AFTER CLUB TEASE - Leeds United fans were left angry after their club trolled them on social media

It's hard enough when you have a mad owner and are putting up with jibes from other fans for not being ambitious, but to get trolled by your own club's official Twitter account? That's too much.

Leeds fans were understandably left angered when their hopes were built up very cruelly by the club's account, only to have them horribly dashed.

Leeds defender Jason Pearce got excited too...

But it was bad news that was to follow...

Then, yes, you guessed it, more bad news...

This amusing press release has caused much hilarity on social media as Zenit St Petersburg – and a delighted looking Andre Villas-Boas – unveiled their big transfer.

“Bartholomew Jo Jo (Bart) Simpson first appeared onscreen in 1987 and because of this he has decided to take 87 as his number”, it read.

He was immediately invited to train with the first-team squad and is looking forward to working under the former Chelsea and Spurs boss.

Romelu Lukaku described his younger brother's call-up as "the best news of my whole life" on Twitter. It’s a remarkable story.

Facts - 7 truths: Raheem Sterling is now England's best player

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers chose to see the funny side about Raheem Sterling's miss against Tottenham by making a joke about it, but the teenager said the gag had gone straight over his head.

Rather hilariously, Sterling had to google the Spurs legend Ricky Villa and comedian Ricky Gervais after not having a clue who either of them were.

"At first when I was told what he said I didn't even understand it," he said. "But I typed both names in so I know what he meant now."

It just shows yet again that football managers should not try to be funny. Never. Ever.
