Fighting talk from Jack Wilshere ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Chelsea

Ex-Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins on the signing of Demba Ba

“The quotes that were published were not correct. I never said that Martin Jol is arrogant, but I did say that he can look a bit arrogant.”

Bjorn Helge Riise, brother of Fulham’s John Arne Riise tries to explain some quotes attributed to him in the Norwegian press about an alleged bust-up between Whites boss Martin Jol and his sibling

“ you would not flog a racehorse like you would flog our players,” -

“He’s a great role model, he’s been the heartbeat of Liverpool for years and he’s also been a role model with the England team and for me.

“If I can get anywhere near as good as him, and drive the team forward like he does, I’d be happy.
