His nose or spots?



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

The one summer he will be off since joining us he'll be settling into life at Man City.

But other than the odd one or two, he's surrounded by s.hit at either club or International level.

Claudio Bravo’s wife has called into question the commitment of some Chile players after they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

‘Thank you, Captain America, for all that you have experienced,’ said Bravo’s wife.

‘It was really beautiful. But when they put on the shirt it has to be with professionalism. ‘I know that most of them busted their asses, while others left parties and even didn’t train from the drunkenness they had.’

Blame game started.

Interesting story in a Chilean newspaper where then-coach Sampaoli predicted in 2015 that the national team would fail to qualify for the WC in 2018 because of the behaviour of some players, most notably Vidal (a "heavy drinker and chronic alcoholic"), Medel, Vargas and several others ("avid party-goers").

As for Alexis, Sampaoli describes him as "isolated" ("he'd come in with his earphones on and sit by himself away from the group").

They won back to back copa america not too bad for Chile's golden generation. Most of the team is now getting old.
