As always, it's been a very eventful week in world football.

This one has been much busier than usual, though.

Wigan achieved the impossible by defeating Manchester City to win the FA Cup before being relegated three days later after losing to Arsenal. Frank Lampard signed a contract extension with Chelsea after breaking Bobby Tambling's goalscoring record.

And as if that wasn't enough, David Beckham, king of stylish football and globally known ambassador of the game, announced his retirement on Thursday.

All this on the heels of Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement last week, and in the thick of a tight race for Champions League places in the Premier League.

So there's been quite a lot to feast on for those who patrol the Twitterverse. Let's recap some of the best tweets from the week that was. If there are any undue omissions, feel free to link to them in the comments, and I might just add them in.

Joe Krishnan makes a valid point about the double standard for punishment in football:
