Ah. Hatem Ben Arfa. That young bag of talent who will flourish and show the world that he was right when he said he'd emulate Lionel Messi. The fresh face of youth with all the disadvantages but freedom of speech that brings. A misunderstood boy trying to make his way in the world of football and learning only from his own mistakes. What's that? He'll be 27 years old before the season ends? Surely not.
Four years ago Divock Origi was just 15 years old and a few months into his spell with Lille. He'd been with Belgian club Genk up until just after his 15th birthday and then moved to the Lille youth system. Origi then went on to play for Lille's youth teams before moving up to Lille B and then through to the first team.
Roman Abramovich will be many things to many people. He looks like a relatively nice guy and, without digging too far into a pit we have no great interest in, that's good enough for the purpose of starting this. He doesn't look like a football bad guy and, in football, perception often wins out.
Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao was an uncomfortable substitute on Monday night against West Brom. The Colombian came on toward the end of the match but will surely find himself a starter in games to come. International football travel had seen Louis van Gaal choose to start without Falcao but the performance of Robin van Persie left much to be desired.
It's usually safe to put El Economista in the same bracket as El Confidencial when it comes to transfer rumours and such in Spain. They're not one of the worst gossips by a long way and sometimes have quite interesting stuff.
Romelu Lukaku has had a difficult start to his permanent Everton career. By far the club's biggest ever signing at £28m, the 21 year old looked all set to continue his progression on Merseyside and fire Everton to another good Premier League finish.
October is normally a quiet month for transfer rumours. The international break does little to help that and unfortunately there's a swell in the number of less than reliable scoops. The Daily Star hasn't suffered from now quietening of the rumour mill and have instead got themselves a big rumour machine gun which spits stories out with the very slightest touch on the trigger.
Radamel Falcao has impressed whilst on international duty with Colombia and has again been the man the media want to speak to. The Manchester United striker, on loan from Ligue 1's AS Monaco, has spoken of his pride after scoring the opening goal against El Salvador for Colombia. He feels it was important to get that goal and, as ever, is thrilled to represent his country in such a way.
