Some of The Merse's one-liners:
"The lad's like a fish up a tree."
Translation: that player looks a little lost and out of his depth
"It's a worldy strike."
Translation: that is a world class long-range goal
About the Author
Paul Merson was born in Brent, London in 1968. He won two League Championships, an FA Cup, a League Cup and a European Cup-Winner's Cup during his 12 years as a legend of Arsenal, before his surprise transfer to First Division Middlesbrough in 1997.
He was instrumental in Boro gaining promotion to the Premiership in 1998/99, but left the club less than a month into the new season to join Aston Villa for £6.75 million. After five years with Villa he moved to Portsmouth in 2002 and was key in helping Pompey achieve promotion to the Premier League in 2003.
Paul then played for - and managed - Walsall before finally retiring in 2006 after more than 600 appearances and 126 goals in a glittering career which also brought 21 England caps.
Merson is now a panellist on SkySports' iconic weekend football results show, Soccer Saturday.
