Episode 1652: FAI Still Scratching For Rock Bottom, Air Ronaldo, Arteta 4 Arsenal, Stale Clasico, Haaland’s Destiny, Liverpool’s World
It looks like the ballboy-toting, still-undefeated age of Dunc might be drawing to a close – at least for now. Is Carlo Ancelotti the right man to revive Everton? And what of Arteta at Arsenal?
Mikel Arteta gave an emotional speech to Man City players/staff at Etihad Campus this morning before leaving to complete formalities of appointment as Arsenal head coach. #MCFC training taking place now without him. Arteta to be presented by #AFC on Friday https://t.co/Q57Wg3ra2i

Jack McCaffrey is a bloody good footballer. 5 All-Ire’s, 4 All-stars, Young Footballer of Yr award, Snr Footballer of Yr Award, 2 A.I final MOTM awards. Most important to @EoinMcDevitt though, is that Jack is also a S.C world service memberhttps://t.co/uJUmY5ph5h pic.twitter.com/AD94bu7HjD
