“This Page Is Gold”: Our New Favourite Football Twitter Account
13:38, 31 Jan 2019

On a stressful day for football fans with players being linked to them from all over the country, it is nice to have a bit of light relief on social media. Now, we have stumbled across one of the finest social media accounts we have ever seen, leaving us in stitches, no we don’t mean @TheSportman, we, of course, do mean @MascotSilence.

The account, created by Connaugh an Everton fan, features some of the funniest pictures from football. The whole premise of the account is having a good laugh at football mascots, mildly amusing at the best of times, joining in with a very serious football moment, the minute's silence.

Some mascots choose to link arms with the players around the centre circle, some choose to go it alone, whilst others choose to stand on the sideline alongside the manager. Whichever they choose they then face another choice, whether to keep their head up and act natural or bow their heads in an attempt to look solemn.

The best thing about this account is that whichever choice the mascot makes, it is hilarious to witness a giant cartoon character/giant cod/fat seagull attempt to not look ridiculous as the other humans pay their respect it what can often be a touching moment.

Please do take a break from your stressful day to have a laugh at a few of these pictures. We have no affiliation with this account it is just simply hilarious and we can’t wait to see more. If you are at a game and there is a minute’s silence, just keep your eyes peeled for what the mascots for both teams are up to…
