GOONER BE A TV STAR
He is best known for constantly calling for Arsene Wenger’s head when the Frenchman was Arsenal manager.
But Robbie Lyle, from YouTube channel Arsenal Fan TV, is going mainstream and has landed his own ITV show, writes The Sun's Andy Halls.
The larger-than-life Gunners fan, who founded the often-controversial YouTube channel, will now front a documentary on ITV.
I’ve heard the show, currently called I’m Red, Not Black, will be a fly-on-the-wall look at Robbie’s colourful life within the football world. It will air later this year.
A source said: “Robbie has become a sensation in football circles.
“He divides opinion but is something of a pioneer when it comes to his channel Arsenal Fan TV.
“The documentary, currently a one-off, will give those fans a closer look at what his day-to-day life is really like. The current plan is for it to be filmed and aired before the end of the season, so time is of the essence.”
RAY OF SUNSHINE
Arsenal Invincible Ray Parlour has admitted he celebrates Watford's win against Liverpool last week.
Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “Of course! I had a few drinks that night!
“Records are there to be broken and I’m sure if a Liverpool player was in the same place I was they’d want us to lose as well!
“But it’s no big deal, really. I know it’s a very good record to have and I’m very proud of it, but the most important thing is winning the league and Liverpool are still going to do that.
“At the start of the season it’s all about winning the league title, it’s not about going unbeaten – that’s a bonus if that happens.”
