Con brings football home, Jimmy red hot, Arsene speaks Weng.

Charlie Nicholas reveals just how Arsene Wenger gets the best from his players – an early night is certainly worth their while:
“There’s a curfew of 75 grand a week.”

SPEAKING WENG
When he’s not busy refining the art of high dudgeon, much of Arsene Wenger’s time is spent making additions to a language that doesn’t always suit his purposes. Over the years, match officials have taken regular trips to “farciland” while he’s usually keen to remind us his team dominated “footballistically.” Now Arsene has dug deep again to explain just why his boys have forgotten how to take it into the corner late doors:
“We are playerish.”

FOOTBALL’S COMING HOME
It’s always about us, isn’t it? A new messiah bestrides the free world and we have to scour Offaly for his local. No wonder then, that Con Murphy saw fit to kick off a Champions League commentary with the remarkable words:
“Marseilles wearing the Dublin colours…”

MISSING IN ACTION
“I did the game. Some of them weren’t up for the battle last week – Bendtner, Nasri, Denilson – they weren’t there.”Phil Thompson is certainly right on one count – Nasri wasn’t there.

DIFFERENT CLASS
Jimmy Magee is warmed by Robbie’s double:
“Yes he’s hot, what’s more he’s burning.”

DRESSING IT UP
Last week, Gilesy reckoned luck didn’t exist, this week Steve Claridge confirms it’s a tranny:
“Lady Luck tried his best for Liverpool there.”

HARD TO DIGEST
“The pit of Steve McClaren’s stomach is not the place to be right now.”
In truth, Clive Tyldesley will have a hard time convincing us there’s ever really a good time:

GOING MAN-TO-MAN
It’s becoming the love that dare not speak its name. On Goals on Sunday, Alan Curbishley was quick to distance himself from the dodgy practise:
“I’ve never done zonal.”

MERSE TURNS HIS HAND TO GEOGRAPHY
…and renames the Croatian capital:
“They were impressive again against Zabree”

ROY GONE WALKING HIS DOG AGAIN?
His abacus missing, Stephen Alkin confirms Roy’s suspicions about telly folk:
“His fiftieth game in charge of Sunderland this afternoon.”
