Champagne For Ben Arfa At St.James’ Park!
In the after match interviews it was great to see Hatem Ben Arfa up for doing a post-match interview, despite being very apologetic about his English.

Luckily his boots are doing all the talking we need at the minute.
He was made Sky man of the match and it was quality to hear their commentator asking if he Hatem was hoping to improve on his one goal at St.James’ Park having scored five away from home.
Mike Williamson helped with the presentation of the man of the match champagne Ben Arfa and another bonus was the presenter clearly having no idea that the midfielder/winger/goalscorer(!) would have little use for it. More chance of him having a few (non-alcoholic) Demba Ba Strawberry syrups to celebrate.
Maybe sometimes you need to grind out a result like the one at home to Norwich which then gives the team the lift and confidence to take apart a solid team like West Brom away from home.
I’ll drink to that!
