Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has always seemed to me a very special man. He exudes style and articulate passion - in an occupation much associated with uncouth behaviour. He is renowned for his selective myopia. How often it has been that every single person in the stadium has observed some infamy by an Arsenal player, only for Arsene to have been looking away at the crucial moment. In last night's Carling Cup match against West Brom, one of his players, Jack Wilshire uttered comments so offensive to his opponent that it instigated a violent reaction, which resulted in a red card. When asked to comment on Wilshire words, Wenger's response was ; "My eyes are not great and my ears are even worse". Sheer class.
