Arsène Wenger needs pizza back on the menu at Arsenal

theguardian.com — Perhaps the strangest part of what happened the day Arsenal lost their Invincibles status against Manchester United is that, however much the evidence pointed to Cesc Fàbregas, we are still waiting for the formal identification of whoever reached for that slice of pizza and, to quote Ashley Cole, hit Sir Alex Ferguson "straight in the mush".

Manchester City 4-1 Tottenham Hotspur

theguardian.com — When Mauricio Pocchetino was asked before this match for his impressions of Sergio Agüero he compared it to the joys of listening to Mozart and Beethoven. Agüero's performance here could certainly have been set to music but, for Pochettino, it must have felt like the blare of sirens whenever the striker had the ball.

Raheem Sterling tiredness has Roy Hodgson querying Liverpool training

Estonia 0-1 England | Euro 2016 qualifiers Group E match report | Football | The Guardian

theguardian.com — For a long time it had looked as though England might be about to rack up one of their least distinguished results of the Roy Hodgson era.

Roy Keane claims Alex Ferguson ‘pressured’ him not to play for Ireland

theguardian.com — Roy Keane's onslaught against Sir Alex Ferguson shows no sign of abating after he accused his former manager of repeatedly trying to force him out of playing for the Republic of Ireland. Ferguson, Keane said, made it clear he did not want players going on international duty unless they were Scottish, when the mantra suddenly became "yeah, you go for it".

Broken Bolton: where did it all go wrong for Wanderers?

theguardian.com — It is not straightforward sometimes understanding how Bolton Wanderers have strayed dangerously close to being financially shipwrecked when it does not seem too long ago that Sam Allardyce was dancing on the pitch with Jay-Jay Okocha and they were establishing themselves as the poster-boy team for every club of that size that wanted a place at the top table.

Roy Keane blasts ‘disgraceful’ José Mourinho over handshake offer

theguardian.com — Roy Keane's most outspoken attack on Sir Alex Ferguson branched out into caustic criticisms of José Mourinho as he branded the Chelsea's manager conduct "disgraceful" and explained why he refused to shake his hand towards the end of Aston Villa's recent match at Stamford Bridge. "The game is still going on," Keane said.

Roy Keane: the stuff Alex Ferguson fed the press was lies, basic lies

theguardian.com — You have said people were telling "a pack of lies" about you. Is there anything in particular that has hurt you? I'm not going to start giving you names. I'm not going into every detail. But, in general, lies. Ex-team-mates; I'm pretty sure you know who I'm talking about.

Pablo Couñago calls Roy Keane a coward over Ipswich row in book

@DafPritchard it's been coming to be honest - few key injuries but probably flattered by early results, honeymoon period for new manager etc
