    Long suffering and recently recovering supporter of Arsenal FC. Apostle at the shrines of Dennis Bergkamp and Tomas Rosicky. Will do circus tricks for Twix bars. Stop talking tactics, he doesn't know that much about football. And he never said the circus tricks would be good. Where's that Twix? In his off-time, can be found rambling at BigFourZa and @Nickspinkboots.

    From battling abuse and addiction to captaining India at the World Cup: The story of Pankaj Mahajan

    The first thing that jumps out at you about the kid is his unconditional politeness and determination to show others respect. He may have just gotten off a long training session in the sweltering heat, but he will still ask if you’ve had lunch or not.
