    John Miller: I miss my refereeing duties in Cambridge County League Saturday afternoons.

    Ideozu: I missed seeing KDB doing his -Things! (only Messi can match and surpass him when he's in the mood).

    Soph D: It's so hard to pick one! Just the entire match day wherever it is. The build up. 90 minutes of being able to immerse yourself and that feeling when something magical happens. And of course seeing friends.

  3. What are clubs doing to help?

    Football stars aren't just keeping us entertained on social media during the lockdown. They are doing their bit to help the community too.

    Here's a little bit about what each club is doing.

    And yesterday, Premier League players launched a "collective initiative" to help generate funds for the National Health Service and distribute them "where they are needed most".

    The initiative - named #PlayersTogether - has been set up to "help those fighting for us on the NHS frontline" amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    Read more on that here.

    Anthony Raymeent: That great moment when Poch glued himself to the turf.

    Phil: The programme guy at Hillsborough. Programmes are 3 pounds!

    Mark: The whole Saturday experience-from breakfast, the game and the pub afterwards and then Match of the Day. Those were the days.

  5. MOTD Top 10 Managers

    The manager. The boss. The gaffer.

    Just who is the best manager in the Premier League era? That is the subject discussed by Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and Ian Wright on the latest edition of the Match of The Day: Top 10 podcast.

    You also have your chance to get involved as we are asking you to rank your favourites in order from a list of 10 bosses.

    To hear the MOTD team's final selections, listen to the latest Match of the Day: Top 10 podcast.

    Andy Griffiths: Meeting my son and catching up as we go to the ground.

    Alistair Coleman: What do I miss the most about football? Getting annoyed by the Arsenal on a regular basis. It's been a vintage season for that.

  7. Post update

    Is someone cutting onions, Steve? I've got a bit teary after that...

  8. Get Involved

    Steve Webb: I miss the smell of burgers and onions. I miss shuffling through the turnstiles, climbing the concrete steps until the view of players warming up on a lush, green pitch opens out like a cinema screen. I miss the anticipation in my guts. Good god, I miss everything.

  9. Multitasking with Mustafi

    Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi managed to fit a lot into one Instagram video. He did kick-ups while washing his hands, but even that didn't impress a pair of young children (presumably his son and daughter).

    There's no pleasing some people.

    Ben Fox: Watching NUFC defend for 89 minutes of a game :) brings my Saturday to life!

    Phyxius: Manchester United. No matter how sometimes awful their performances are. But United have been magnificent since Bruno's arrival and United finally so fun to watch again.

  11. Over to the fans...

    League Two Leyton Orient took the simulation of their match at Bradford even further, asking fans to vote on which teams should be selected, getting a pre-match comment from actual manager Ross Embleton, then live tweeting the match in real time.

    After all that, Orient couldn't even scrape a point, going down to a 1-0 defeat.

  12. 10-man Watford pick up a point

    Watford had their home match with Leicester City played out on Football Manager.

    Despite playing most of the match with 10 men after a horrible challenge by Etienne Capoue on Dennis Praet, the Hornets earned a creditable point.

    Marc Albrighton's rasping left-footed finish was cancelled out late on by Roberto Pereyra's long-range stunner, which sent Vicarage Road wild.

    Tom Skinner: Simulated the season over and over on Champ Man 03/04 until the 'Invincibles' was repeated. 21 sims later, one team managed it... 5th place Birmingham City (W15 D23 L0). It counted for nothing because their biggest rivals Aston Villa won the title...

    Rotten luck that!

  14. What's Aguero's best side?

    Manchester City invited fans to get in touch with their artistic side.

    There were plenty of Sergio Aguero drawings knocking about afterwards - good effort!

    Ronoo: The tackles. The saves. The VAR wrong decision. The celebration. The passion.

    Simon Curtis: Long pauses in play waiting for VAR. Hot takes. Klopp's teeth.

  17. Settle for a draw?

    Southampton were one of the first clubs to kick off the fun on social media during the lockdown.

    They tried to engage with Norwich in a game of noughts and crosses but were unsuccessful.

    But then up stepped Manchester City.

    The game finished a draw but they were both winners when it came to entertainment value.
