The internet laughs at Aleksandar Mitrovic's red card | The Beautiful Game | Scoop.it
The Premier League's latest bad boy found himself getting an early shower, but you can't say that it wasn't coming

Mitrovic is the Sergio Ramos & Pepe combined. He steps on the pitch and gets booked. In the pre-match interview, he looks like a card waiting to happen.

Karim Benzema to Arsenal: Why Real Madrid striker would be a perfect signing | The Beautiful Game | Scoop.it
Real Madrid striker would be a superb signing for Arsenal, combining the pace of Theo Walcott with the muscularity of Olivier Giroud
Tamara Hampton's insight:
I'd love to see Benz at Arsenal, but somewhere deep inside of me, I fear he lose some of his edge. He'd get all Arsenally, just like Petr Cech.

Luis Suarez slammed by Madrid press for being 'overweight' | The Beautiful Game | Scoop.it
Luis Suarez will make his debut for Barcelona against Real in less than a month and already the Madrid press are trying to undermine him, branding him 'overweight'.
