As I wrote yesterday, I don’t want to meet the prima donnas in football – I want to meet real people, players that I could sit and chat with, and get to like as actual people and not as footballers.

Thanks to this video (hat tip ANR), I now have 3 more players on already-long list of footballers to meet. The fact that they’re Arsenal fans is ironic, but to me that’s what football is about – being able to go beyond your rivalries and bias and to see the qualities of other teams and other players.

Plus I think Baptista is a fantastic player, and if they get him I’d be a bit jealous.
