The football season’s back, which must mean Match of the Day is back.

Celebrate – or commiserate – with 11 times Gary Lineker owned his favourite foe, Piers Morgan, on Twitter.


On supporting Donald Trump


On Morgan’s calorie consumption.

3. On nuclear weapons


When Morgan lost his CNN talkshow.


When Morgan met Dynamo.


When Morgan described Lineker as a “goal hanger”.


After Morgan vowed to take extreme action if his beloved Arsenal suffered another defeat…


And then there was the time Morgan tweeted a photo of himself with Lineker’s then wife, Danielle Bux.

The exchange didn’t end there.


When Morgan won a GQ award and Lineker didn’t.

Morgan didn’t let it lie, and neither did Lineker.


When Morgan’s ITV talkshow was replaced by an England football match.

When Frankie Boyle joined in, Morgan said it was like a “half-witted version of the Chuckle brothers”.


When Morgan tried his hand at being a rugby pundit (this is epic)

Lineker offered this comment on his old sparring partner’s analysis.

And then it really kicked off.

(In case you don’t know what Morgan’s talking about…)
