Arsenal legend Paul Merson pulls off a couple of glorious free-kicks in “Man vs Machine” [Fantasy Football Club]

Paul Merson may currently be a bumbling pundit on Soccer Saturday, who often fails to pronounce foreign sounding names, but he was once upon a time a rather good player.

Either wide right or playing behind the striker, Merson became a legend at Arsenal and also impressed at the likes of Aston Villa and Portsmouth whilst also bagging 21 England caps.

Even with drug and gambling problems, Merson was an attacker of real quality and could take excellent set-pieces.

And it appears that Merson “has still got it!” as he took on former Wolves keeper Matt Murray in a “Man versus Machine” battle on the Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club.

Well in Merse!
