    Most hashtags on Twitter can be disregarded. Most trends and memes can be ignored.

    But some do work and one that started late on Thursday night, #TweetAPictureYoullNeverDelete, was an absolute treat.

    Despite it not being a football-specific tag, an impressive number of the pictures were focused on the beautiful game. 

    We've capped our list at 15—it could easily have been more. Enjoy!

15. Arsenal's 2009/10 Campaign

    Football fans never forget. So when Arsenal are still waiting for their moment several years on, this came out again.

    #TweetAPictureYoullNeverDelete Because it wasn't really their time..

14. Andrei Arshavin's Photoshoot

    Andrei Arshavin, you tease. One of the big pluses of the hashtag was not merely reliving classic pictures but discovering new ones. For us at least, this Arshavin photoshoot was in the latter category. 

13. Vincent Kompany's Oddly-Shaped Head

    There's just no explaining Vincent Kompany's ever-expanding head. 

12. RVP and the Manchester United Mannequins

    Robin van Persie and a collection of the worst Manchester United figurines you could ever hope to see. 

11. James Milner's 17th Birthday

    James Milner celebrated his 17th birthday in Leeds with Terry Venables. How times change. 

10. When Referees Attack

    Referee Mark Clattenburg turns assassin. Strangely compelling, the more you look at it.

9. When Brian Kidd Met Gervinho

    Interim Manchester City manager Brian Kidd sat next to an undersized Gervinho at the end of last season. Although we're fairly sure that this is Photoshopped. Probably. 

8. Brendan Rodgers and Joe Allen

    Move over, Scotland: This is the Tartan Army now. 

7. The Spice Boys

    Liverpool's 1996 FA Cup Final suits are still remembered to this day.  

    It's not a compliment.

6. Kolo Toure and the Shower

    Richard Drew/Associated Press

    What is it about Kolo Toure peeking from behind a shower curtain that makes it worthy of our list? We're hard-pushed to say, other than to say it being absent from the list would be a travesty. 

5. Vinnie Jones Tackles a Child

    Vinnie Jones had a reputation for being a footballing hard-man. This may have crossed a line, however.

3. Danny Welbeck Face

    Phil Jones can consider himself unlucky that it was his face, and not Danny Welbeck's, which became a meme:

2. The Solemn Gunnersaurus

    Will Gunnersaurus looking solemn during a minute's silence ever not look funny? We wait. 

1. Worst Meme Ever?

    Margarethe Wichert/Associated Press

    Worst. Meme. Ever. 

    It's wrong, for one thing. It's misspelt all over the place for another. And Higuain ended up at Napoli, not Arsenal. 

    This makes the top of our list because it's precisely the sort of thing that is ridiculous to keep hold of and yet now we've seen it, we also can't imagine deleting it.

    #TweetAPictureYoullNeverDelete "The Arsenal goaler" 😂😂
