RIP Vine: A compilation of the best football vines everPublished November 1, 2016
The following is a celebration of the life of Vine, a social media platform that gave us so much joy. Football’s greatest moments can be contained within seven seconds of a looping clip. It’s a piece showing the best of football vines.
Those moments of rage-inducing controller-smashing madness were perfect for Vine. Instead of being frustrated by FIFA glitches, we had an outlet for our pain, a support group who knew how we felt.

Minnesota United goalkeeper Sammy Ndjock conceded this bizarre own goal in a pre-season friendly against Bournemouth. The fact that it wasn’t a competitive match didn’t stop his howler from being immortalised.

The Wealdstone Raider
Remember him? Gordon Hill was a viral sensation after being recorded goading the opposition at his local team’s match before turning around and asking ‘ you want some’. We did, actually. Quite a bit.

The biggest of the celebrity fans spawned by YouTube channels covering the Premier League’s biggest teams. Tate’s rants about the state of Manchester United under David Moyes made him a star.

Henry and Carragher
Sky Sports couldn’t have scripted a better reaction to Brendan Rodgers being sacked by Liverpool. Thierry Henry grabs Jamie Carragher’s leg and the Scouse legend looks directly into the camera. Understandably, it inspired a few parodies.

Self-explanatory, this one.
