These are the best Stan Collymore v Joleon Lescott jokes as the Aston Villa stars past and present clash over the club’s humiliating season.
Lescott enraged Villa fans by describing relegation to the Championship as “a weight off the shoulders” in his post-match interview following the 1-0 defeat at Man Utd.
When Collymore very publicly criticised these comments, Lescott messaged him on Instagram suggesting that they meet up in person to “sort this out as men”.
Collymore then posted the exchange on Twitter, joking that he’d done so accidentally while his phone was in his pocket – a reference to Lescott posting a picture on an expensive car just after Villa lost 0-6 at home to Liverpool.
As interest in the feud intensifies, here are the best Stan Collymore v Joleon Lescott jokes:
Stan Collymore just tweeted this DM with @JoleonLescott before deleting it…

Collymore tweets a DM from Lescott offering him out , then deletes it? My money's on Stan but only if Lescott puts on a blonde wig & heels.

Collymore vs Lescott is probably the most entertaining thing which has happened all season down the Villa. #avfc

Sounds like Joleon Lescott's post match interview went off in his pocket. #avfc

Stan Collymore 'steps forward' to save Villa. Suddenly Dwight Yorke sounds like Mourinho.
