Arsene Wenger is bleating about a referee who ‘doesn’t see things that exist’. This is the ultimate irony from a man who, after 10 years, still constantly fails to see things that do exist on a football pitch.

Thierry Henry is a superb footballer but should similarly be discouraged from giving post-match interviews after a defeat. His moaning, whinging performance almost rivalled his self-pitying rant following his dismal showing in the European Cup Final.

Both men remind me of the junior football league my son plays in every Saturday. Apart from the fact, those lads accept defeat with a good deal more grace and dignity.
