Journo’s Friday Thoughts
Arsene under the cosh
Never, whether having a group audience with Arsene Wenger or watching him interviewed on television, have I seen him end the inquisition abruptly – like he did post-match Arsenal’s Capital One Cup exit at Bradford City on Tuesday. Even the cool “Professor” is feeling the Emirates heat.
Sky Sports News do a brilliant job and love to ramp it up. Yet even they were stretching it a bit far when daring to suggest that the imperial Lionel Messi, on 88 goals in this calendar year, might reach three figures before 2013. Messi has just two games left.
Mario first, the rest nowhere
