Football Weekly podcaster, Talksport sidekick, would also trip if collecting an Oscar.

Behind him Gunnersaurus bared his teeth and menacingly pawed the air — ANGRY ARSÈNE ANGRY ARSÈNE Despite celebrating the 19th anniversary of his having taken up the Arsenal manager's job yesterday, Arsène Wenger was in no mood for celebrating with the gentlemen of the press at his dawn press conference this morning.

Football transfer rumours: Hakan Calhanoglu to Manchester United? — Manchester United are keeping tabs on Germany born Turkey international midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, a 21-year-old playmaker renowned for his dead ball strikes. Calhanoglu made quite the name for himself by scoring a free-kick against Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller from 41 metres out last year, one of 12 free-kicks from which he has scored since beginning his career in the Bundesliga.

Football transfer rumours: Gokhan Tore to Aston Villa? — So now we know. Or at least think we know. Chelsea's players are fed up with José Mourinho scapegoating them when things go wrong, while reports suggest Arsenal's were accused of "lacking passion and desire" during a bad-tempered training ground debrief into their defeat at the hands of Olympiakos.

Football transfer rumours: John Terry set to join Fenerbahce? — On a day when football's pathologists devote much of their available space and vocabulary to post-mortem reports on the defeats of Arsenal and Chelsea, the Rumour Mill finds itself sifting through the bags of biohazard waste in search of any odds and ends that can be sewn together, Dr Frankenstein style, to create a presentable column's worth of transfer tittle-tattle.

Jack Grealish plumps for England but what is the price of loyalty? — Move along, nothing to see here. The decision of a promising 20-year-old footballer to choose to represent the country of his birth at international football should neither make headline news nor generate ill feeling, but that is unlikely to be the case with Jack Grealish.

Football transfer rumours: Eden Hazard to Real Madrid? — For all the occasionally exaggerated talk we hear about respect for referees, the excellent behaviour of mingling beered up fans and other happy-clappy differences between rugby and football, the many photos in today's papers of an ashen faced and shell-shocked England manager and his captain facing the media after another big tournament defeat suggest that for all their apparent differences, the two sports are actually pretty similar.

From Jimmy Armfield to Francesco Totti - here’s to football’s one-club men — Following a week in which Jimmy Armfield celebrated his 80th birthday and Francesco Totti scored his 300th goal for Roma, it seems as good a time as any to acknowledge the increasingly rare breed of professional that is the one-club footballer. It is an occasion to salute their unwavering commitment, unconditional loyalty and relentless indefatigability.

Tottenham v Manchester City: Premier League - live! — League leaders Manchester City travel to what's left of White Hart Lane, following the attempts at demolition by Arsenal fans a few days ago, looking to get their season back on track after becoming the latest high profile team to be given a bloody nose by Slaven Bilic's West Ham travelling roadshow.
