Who won the weekend: Gary Lineker or Danny Dyer?

This weekend was a momentous one for the Premiership with Chelsea continuing their campaign for a Championship spot and Arsenal finally going top (for a day).

Gary Lineker used Arsenal’s win as a chance to troll Wenger-hater Piers Morgan while diamond geezer Danny Dyer used West Ham's famous victory over the champions as a chance to ‘mug-off’ Chelsea’s manager.

Both were great but whose was better?


Who: Gary Lineker

England’s third all-time top scorer played an absolute blinder this weekend as he somehow managed to use Arsenal’s ascent to the top of the Premiership as a chance to troll massive Arsenal fan (and chief troll) Piers Morgan.

Morgan has made no secret of his desire to see Arsenal’s greatest ever manager depart the club so the fact that they were top of the league made Lineker, quite reasonably, tweet Morgan to see whether he might consider changing his opinion on the matter. 

Considering Morgan wouldn't change his mind even if Wenger won the next ten Champion’s Leagues and signed Messi for £8.50, Morgan's response was no surprise.

This brief twitter spat was just the latest in a long line of Lineker v Morgan conflicts but, just like in football, Gary usually gets the better of his man.      

Keep up the good work Gary.


Who: Danny Dyer

Chelsea fans look away now.

Has there ever been a funnier sight in the history of football than the enormously successful and enormously arrogant manager of Chelsea sitting at the back of West Ham’s director’s box as Andy Carrol bangs in a late winner? 

Jose

Well, actually, yes there has. 

Coming back from half time, Danny Dyer spotted the special (-ist in failure) one looking rather glum and so, being Danny Dyer, took the chance to kindly ask: “you alright sunshine?”

It was, as Mr. Dyer would say, proper naughty.
