These were the best Mathieu Flamini jokes doing the rounds after the Arsenal midfielder conceded a penalty within a minute of coming on as a substitute against Barcelona.
The Frenchman replaced Francis Coquelin on 82 minutes and hacked down Lionel Messi in the area just 47 seconds later, consigning Arsenal to a 0-2 Champions League last 16 first leg defeat at the Emirates.

Messi should've passed the penalty to Flamini as well.

Watching Mathieu Flamini play football is akin to the trials of Job in the Bible

Baby girl are you Flamini because you swept me off my feet in less than a minute

60 – Number of inappropriate photos of Arsene Wenger that Mathieu Flamini must own to keep getting in the Arsenal team. Blackmail.

Flamini literally blocked my view warming up for 80 minutes, then gave away a pen. Man know just how to push all my buttons.

If my son ever asks why I went to jail,
"KID, IT ALL STARTED WHEN FLAMINI GAVE AWAY THE PENALTY AGAINST BARCA "

The day Flamini's Arsenal contract expires this summer should be a national holiday.

When I die, replace the Emirates clock with an hourglass containing my ashes, so Flamini can waste my time long after I've gone

Mathieu Flamini is literally worse than the Ebola virus.

at this point I'd be surprised if Flamini doesn't show up on my wedding day and kills my wife
